    Well, it's 2021 in Germany right now, so Happy New Year to everyone and may it bring many awesome beer hauls to come. And this is the thread to post them in, with a picture and maybe even a brief description or listing if you would like. This is a great opportunity to show off your beer hauls and share them with the community here at Beer Advocate. Please keep this thread on-topic and post away!

    Here's my latest haul, featuring some great IPAs from England, Spain and Germany, from some of the finest Breweries Europe has to offer. I'm especially happy about scoring some Cloudwater again and very curious about the stuff from Basqueland and Garage from Spain.

    Not an IPA guy but I think you should be OK with both Basqueland and Garage from Spain (Basqueland´s Imparable is a legit WCIPA and Garage makes good NEIPAS). Slightly curious, also.

    Still sober at the moment but picked up some gifts for a couple friends who came over last night to help me set up my firing system. Saved me a couple hours of work and I'm not good with gifts so I just bought something I would want to receive.

    Southern Pines Bourbon Barrel-Aged German Chocolate Cake Stout (x4)
    Southern Pines Grand Cru (x4)

    I did ask him for the Stout, the other one was his Christmas present to me. I was really impressed with their BBA Raisin Pecan Chocolate Pie Stout. Hope this one is just as good. :slight_smile:

    Fair warning on this one. I bought two, one to send, and one tick. After I drank the ticker, I almost didn't send this. But, life can't be al sunshine, lollipops, rainbows, and puppies. Maybe you'll think it's better than I did.....

    This is getting off topic for the thread, but you'll enjoy this story. A few years ago a friend of mine was traveling with his wife for a work conference. I believe they were in Singapore. Something came up that my friend needed a suit for a function and hadn't packed one. He went around the city and finally found a tailor who would make him a custom suit for close to the same price as buying one in a retailer. It wasn't until after he was picking it up that he saw the wall of photos this guy had on his wall. The one that jumped out immediately was of him with Billy Gibbons. Apparently this guy has been making suits for the ZZ Top for years. I have to say, I'm not much of a fashion guy, but it's a great looking suit.

    Got a delivery today from the Triple Crossing brewery. Some brews and some frozen pizzas. Did not notice at first but one four pack was wrong. I ordered a four pack of Space Falcon but got Falcon Smash. I can see how the mistake was made.

    Anyway I called to tell them of the mistake. Since I buy three to four 4 packs a week from them not to mention frozen pizzas, I figured they would include the beer in my delivery next week.

    To their credit, the kid (as I get older they seem younger) stopped by two hours later with the correct beer. Gotta love their service.

    ...pulled into my old home town area in Mansfield, Ohio and stopped by Wayne's Country Market to grab some beers...the selection, especially for singles, really didn't thrill me, but found two bottles (if that can really be considered a haul)...still might grab a some Phoenix Brewing Co. beers, something from Millersburg Brewing Co., and perhaps Fat Head's Brewery to take back to Colorado later this week...

    My measly "haul" from today:

    Real small haul, wish I could have gotten more. The lady in front of me got the last growler, and someone had just bought the last bottle off the shelf. Lucky for me the clerk pitied me just missing out on one of my favorite beers, and sold me one the few they had held back. This beer is Yuge, a BBA and Maple Barrel-aged imperial porter, 12.7% ABV.

    G'day, all! I caught a few surprises at the grocery store this afternoon. This eclectic mix pack includes beers from Hoppin' Frog and Cigar City, both new to this area. The Abyss in 12-ounce bottles and Q.O.R.I.S. in 8.45-ounce cans? Take my money, please! A couple of Christmas beers showed up too late for the 12 Days lineup, but the tree is still up so no problem. (It's more of a generic winter tree anyway.) Boulevard Imperial Cask Cuvée rounds out the six-pack. Good thing I got that 10% six-pack discount, eh? :grinning:

    I made a haul yesterday. Was happy to find some fresh IPAs including a 12 pack of Jai Alai dated 12/7 or 10. The six packs were too old to buy. They had some Alpine Nelson dated July 2020. Sad.
