    Welcome to the 2020 edition of the "Post a picture of your latest beer haul". This is where Beer Advocates share pictures of their most recent beer haul, including any appropriate explanation. Please keep this on-subject. This is a great barometer of distribution in other markets and a chance to see what each other has found. That said, let's go!

    Jumping the gun here, but it is New Year's Day on the East coast. Seven new-to-me beers and yet another BCBS Café de Olla.

    A bit of trivia here. In the past few years, here are how many posts appeared on this annual thread;
    A decreasing number of posts could indicate we've gotten better at staying on topic. :wink: Or there are fewer of us taking the time to hassle with the image hosting services and the technology to get it there. If you have questions how to do that, feel free to ask. Please try to post clear pictures close enough to read the labels. Additional lighting and cropping help. To avoid rotation issues, hold your phone horizontally with the button to the right. Have fun, show us your hauls!

    Quite a few new to me beers that my brother hauled back from his Chicago trip.

    While in OBX, NC picked up a “build your own six pack” of various NC brewery IPAs and a four pack of Kentucky BB Ale.

    For me it’s the hassle of using image hosting, I know how and after winning the Super Bowl squares a few years back I felt obligated to post the victory boxes. It was a PITA so once done with those boxes I quit. I would post more if it was easier

    Some hosting services are easier than others, particularly if they include tools. I take pics on my phone, share them to my DropBox, then go to my laptop, edit (crop, etc), get a link, and post. I can usually do all of that within a minute or two. I do almost all of my posting from home because it's more challenging to do it all from a phone. Like anything, the more you do it, the faster it is.

    Some use free hosting services to good success, while others run into barriers like image size, longevity, views per month, reliability, features, etc.

    Thanks, but that is just another “app”
    to store my pics and then to my laptop when I’m home with the kids wanting my attention blah blah blah , it needs to be easier.

    people keep complaining about the difficulty of posting images and I honestly don’t understand the problem. I use Imgur and find it extremely simple to do from both the iOS app and the full website. Elapsed time from pic to post is like 30 seconds.

    I came home today to an incredible porch-bomb from @Justonemore91. I'm thinking I'll do a BCBS Reserve 2018/2019 vertical on NBS. The beers will be vertical, I may not be! I had been drooling over the Blackbeard's Bear Hug folks on WBAYDN have been having, and two of those were in the box too!

    I use postimage and it’s the same thing. Literally no problem whatsoever. I think I spend more time trying to take a picture with the perfect lighting/angle than I do actually uploading and posting said image.

    Today an unexpected and unsolicited box landed on my porch. There have been posts/threads about the generosity of various BAs, and the person who sent this to me stands as one of the best. I'm floored by his thoughtfulness and kindness and speechless about the beers he sent. I will, of course, pay him back as best I can in time. But what's great about this community are so many people are so generous just for the enjoyment of sharing great beers with others!

    Thank you!

    I must thank @SierraNevallagash for once again hooking me up with a long time want. This beer has some sentimental value as it shares a name with my wife. Eric, thank you for your generosity. I look forward to returning the favor!

    First little haul of 2020. This is probably the weakest haul I've ever made. By that I mean in alcoholic content. In Sweden only beer under 3.5% ABV can be sold outside of special stores. These beer are called folköl (folkbeer or peoplebeer). They used to be mostly boring macro stuff, but the last few years have seen a boom of craft breweries making really interesting low alcohol beers. I also happen to have one of the better stores in Sween for this kind of beer about 5 minutes away from me, so I will make sure to go back frequently. From left:

    Brekeriet Vild Rips
    Brekeriet Picnic Sunrise
    Beersmiths Folk IPA
    Sibbarps Husbryggeri Folklager
    Rocket Brewing/Secret Sister Brewing Our Space

    Shiitttt. I wish my beer trading buddies would porch bomb me with a King Henry! I had to trade organs the last few years to land it. You have a good friend indeed. Looks like you probably need to grab your most prized beer and toss it in a return box and send it his way, lol.

    I was out buying some wine and two things caught my eye while perusing the beer section. The Coffee version of the RIS that I purchased earlier this week, and the Three Philosophers mixed pack. I’m seeing more than ever these mixed packs with glasses. Maybe it’s just leftover from the holiday season.

    I know :astonished:. And that's the beauty of this site and many of the people in it. Trouble is, there's not many "most prized beers" that come close to King Henry. I've got a few ideas though...

    That's a good fucking haul. Zombie Dust is one of my all time favorite beers but lizard king and twisted Galaxy might be better

    Visited family in NJ for the past week and compiled this haul of some old standbys, big want, and new beers. The 12 pack of Yards Brawler I also picked up never made it home ...

    Fun little haul.
    I never found hoptimum this year, and SN beers tend to hold up over time, so even an April bottle dating is worth a single.

    I use imgur but can’t get it to populate the actual image anymore. This is from my iphone10 . It just puts the link to go to imgur or if I use url button on here it just says IMG.

    If you're using the imgur app, once you've uploaded the photo go to your profile (the "person" link at the bottom right.) Then click the post (image) you want to post to BA. Then give it a "double click"... hold the image and a menu will pop up. Click the "copy post link" (2nd option). Now go to BA and in the post menu click the image link and then paste it into the field. I know this sounds complicated, but once you do it a few times it's second nature.

    Sorry not trying to be difficult...just to reiterate you have to click Copy Post Link not Copy Link while in imgur. When you get back to BA you have to click the add image button (the one with the mountain) and then paste in the link. If that's what you're doing then idk what to say. That's what I've been doing for a while and I have no issues.

    Your not being difficult brother, very helpful! I only have a copy link button on imgur. I don’t see a copy post link button. But I do use the mountain icon on BA. Can I PM you a screen shot of what I see?
