    Now that it seems like things are back in working order, this thread can officially resume. At last check-in, Libbey had a package from injuredreserve.

    Feel free to repost your hauls and pics.

    I'm going to have to wait until I can access old BM's where I already posted. With so many new beers I have zero chance of recalling what injuredreserve sent of the top of my head.....

    also no pic's from me cause I've already drank a number of them....

    Kickin Chickin Bourbon Barrel Aged Barleywine was quite tasty though.:slight_smile:

    The final pieces of my box have come together. Hope to put a bunch of beer on the road by Monday.

    A couple of hints (to make up for my last one).

    #1: one of your wants in the box will be partnered with a limited barrel age version to go along with it.

    #2: your baseball team might be worse than my lowly Mariners....

    Whew, after a totally shitty day at work too, I left the house at 8.45a and did not return till after 9p. What a pick me up provided by our good friend Matt!

    Hopworks Aboninable Winter Ale (My first Hopworks brew!)
    American Brewing Co. Caboose Oatmeal Stout (I heart oaty stouts)
    Full Sail Top Sail Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Porter (Cant wait to try)
    Dick's Brewing Co. Double Danger Ale (assume this is a double of the one I shouldnt deep throat :grimacing:?)
    Skagit River Brewery Flyers Peacemaker Porter
    Cascade Sang Royal 2009 (WoW, pretty sure this is a want whether it was on the list or not)

I think I had a taste of Sang Royal at a tasting and of course the AV Winter Solstice. But other than that, I have not had any of them!! I am so stoked, thank you, thank you. It will be utterly impossible to top this one, so apologies already to the next target :slight_smile:

    Enjoy buddy.

    The Sound stuff is from an up and comer from my neck of the woods barely a year old and making some great beers. I saw the Upright 7 on your want and happened to luck out and be in PDX at the right time and was able to get the barrel aged brett version of it (Sole composition) at the brewery.

    It was fun putting your box together and hitting so many of my favorite beers. I think it helped they we had similar pallets. I love me some stouts and Belgians so I was glad to get to share some of mine.:wink:

    Oh and that BB XXI is peaking right NOW some consume and enjoy.

    Cheers,
    Matt

    PS You can have all my summer and winter solstice beers because I HATE THEM...

    but i remember reading that you loved them. Meh, nobodies perfect

    Over 50 lbs of brew is headed in a Northern-ish direction to someone who has alot in common with a certain current local coach! This is the most beer I think I have ever sent to anyone, lol.

    Absolutely killer stuff. I always forget that Clown Shoes has a limited distribution in Texas, but hits almost none of the states in between.

    Black Metal is some mighty tasty stuff.

    Glad it made it safely! I might have cried had the styro-shipper been lost or broken in transit. Three tripels and three NB trippels! whoa...trippy, brah.

    The name of the Texans coach is Kubiak, so hence the hint for your last name and his.

    The Ska TB Dubbel is one of my absolute favorite beers, it flies under the radar, IMO. Karbach is brand new and the cans hit stores last week and they are doing some real nice things, I think the hopadillo might be the best IPA in texas, while endeavor might be the best DIPA.

    I shipped out box #1 today.

    Box number one contains eight beers that should land Thursday. The eight beers contain one hundred and forty eight fluid ounces. Seven of the beers are twelve ounce bottles. How many ounces of Bohdi is my target receiving, and who is the target?

    Cheers.

    Box #2, and #3 shipped today. Another 250 ounces of mostly local / regional beers. I fell just shy of 400 total ounces of beer. I was only able to hit two wants, but some good beer none the less.
