    I got very excited because the UPS guy came with two boxes.
    Unfortunately the two boxes were clothes and shoes for my wife. :(

    The entire haul:

    [​IMG]

    From L --> R, front to back (that's what she said):
    CCB Cognac Sweet Stout (really?!?)
    Terrapin Wake n' Bake x4!!! (Perma-Want)
    CCB Jai Alai x2 (yes!)
    BCBCS (this is my absolute favorite beer in the multiverse!)
    '12 BCBS (Perma-Want, basically my 2nd favorite beer)
    Terrapin Rye Pale Ale (never had...awesome)
    Abrasive x2! (another Perma-Want)
    Terrapin Hopescutioner (never had)
    '12 BBPt5!!! (PermaMega-Want)

    And, a kick-ass mason jar-ish from Terrapin! Balancing it on top of that Abrasive was a poor choice, but everything survived. :) Close-up:

    box is headed east via FedEx Express 2-day Super Saver. It should land Monday by 4:30pm containing a barrel aged barley wine from Big Sky that I sipped on all night last night around a fire in the snow with fun gents and sexy ladies...the way it should be done.

    side note: I saw some pictures in here and didn't want to be that one box that everyone is glad they didn't get.... So I made a last minute run last night for some awesome little treats that most people associate strictly with California.

    When I saw my box was from Montana I was both excited and disappointed at the same time. I recalled sholle posting this hint, but I quickly realized the box in front of me was much too small to fit one or more sexy ladies...such is life. The haul:

    [​IMG]

    750ml Big Sky Olde Bluehair - Nice!! I had this for the first time at the Gang Bang BIF packing party and loved it!
    22oz Alaskan Smoked Porter 2011
    22oz Kern River Class V Stout - want
    22oz Great Northern Brewing Company Going to the Sun IPA
    16oz Montucky Cold Snack Beer x2 - no indication of style, not on BA. Can says brewed in Wisconsin so I'm guessing this is similar to PBR/Natty Boh
    12oz Lewis & Clark Tumbleweed IPA x3 - This isn't on my wants? WTF is wrong with me?

    And finally the casualty, a Blackfoot River Brewing Company glass (RIP)

    Very nice box Scott, thanks!

    one more hint this morning: My box is going to be delivered to a place that is 942 ft. lower in elevation than my current city.

    Glad to see it got there ok! Was trying to track up some cool IPA's for you, but didn't come across anything I was too stoked about that wasn't already on your gots list. Sending a PTE shirt into Heady territory? :D

    I believe someone has a box currently waiting for them at their front door. I can't decide which majoy city is closer to check the weather though, Baltimore or DC.
