    Two times this year I shared good bottles (Firestone XIV and Deschutes BB XXIV) with people I just met. They both really like beer, but are not zealous enough to have a BA login or to make homebrew.

    Both times the reply was, "This is the best beer I've ever had!" It is true that these are merely good shelf beers, but I know the reactions were genuine and the bottles were not infected by Rareness. ;)

    And I'm not too fond of you right now after resurrecting this POS thread.

    Talk about walking the walk...

    THIS MF did one stupid little trade with me. We struck up a solid friendship. A couple of months go by, and it is GABF. I only get to attend one single gathering (not a GABF session - we had our baby 10 weeks premature and she had just come home a couple weeks prior) so he sets up a tasting with all my best drinking pals and brings Vanilla Bean DL (among about 10 others of only SLIGHTLY smaller caliber)!!!!

    This man is the REAL DEAL.

    I really hope I get DlD tickets this year so I can meet up with all you Midwesterners and share some of your own shelf walez with you :)

    How do you find a thread that ended over two months ago?

    Read a ridiculous post. Click OP's name to read the other gems he's written.

    At least that's what I assume.
