    If you're interested in Big Gruesome, I should be able to get my hands on more. Maybe after this BIF we can work out a deal. BM me if you're interested. As for the KBS... you're on your own, haha. Only got two bottles in a recent trade, gave one to emottram. The other.... well you know :D

    The range of emotions I felt when I read that... first, excited that it might be mine, then the cynical realization that it might not be.

    Sippin on some Rye-on-Rye, watching Breaking Bad, packing stouts, and the baby is in bed.........pretty solid Tuesday night.

    Shipping to the Windy City in the morning, hopefully the box will make it in time for the second round of the tournament.

    Glad everything got there in one piece. I was a little bit nervous b/c of the weight so I packed the crap out of it. Enjoy the brews!

    If I manage to get a case of KBS again this year I'll send a 13 your way :)
    I meant to throw in a 12 BCBS to go with it, but didn't have room.

    All of these boxes so far have been fantastic.
     
  39. jakeox

    jakeox Dec 15, 2012 Illinois

    Awesome -- I'm glad everything got there fine and you dig what's in there! You had the Bell's Java Stout and the Obsidian Stout on your wants list earlier in the BIF, and by the time they disappeared from your wants I figured I already had them and they're good stouts, so they went it the boxes.

    The Coffee Break Abduction and 18th Street Sinister are two great Chicago beers that I love -- I saw that you were into DIPAs, so I included the Sinister. That's from 18th Street's first ever batch, contract brewed at Spiteful.

    These boxes were a lot of fun to put together!

    I'm going home for a family gathering tomorrow so I'll be enjoying the Sinister with my brother who's also a fan of DIPAs. It sounds great!
