    Box #10 came in from sholle!

    Box was a bit damp on the porch....sure enough, smells like barley n hops:( I guess with all this great beer being sent, it was time for a sacrifice to the beer gods.

    The haul:

    [​IMG]

    Great Northern Going to the Sun IPA (awesome lookin MT local!)
    Smuttynose 2011 Barleywine (only thing better than a good barleywine is a good aged barleywine, yumm!)
    Lewis n Clark Tumbleweed IPA (the leaker, too bad cuz it smells awesome:))

    Looks like the box took a nasty blow to the same side the can was packed on. Sorry I couldn't try one of your states great locals but now I'll definitely keep an eye out for this one.

    Despite the bad luck, much thanks Sholle for the awesome box!

    Try it before you pour it! You'd be amazed how good the remaining liquid can be even after a leak.

    I did give it a shot but surprisingly little left in this one. I popped the can and got about a half swig. The smell though was still there and it smelled delicious! Had my wife seen, she would've thought I was a bit crazy...hovering over the sink, tongue out urging every drop from the can:) It was tasty.

    Box #8 from Moc513

    Alesmith Speedway Stout
    Alesmith IPA
    FFF Zombie Dust

    Solid trio, thanks! The lack of street address on the label resulted in this box getting delivered to someone across town, luckily my phone number was on there and they weren't particularly thirsty!

    Really?? I entered it when I created the label. Mental note to check labels after I print them. Glad it made it there safely then.

    So I was breaking down the multitude of boxes sitting in my office today and ended up finding these bottle-opener rings on the floor afterwards. Not sure who sent them, but thanks, and sorry for not finding them earlier and giving proper credit!

    Box #8 from usofar


    Alpine Duet
    Alpine Ale
    Port Board Meeting

    Alpine Duet is SO DAMN GOOD. And I'm truly psyched to try the other two bottles. Board Meeting sounds delicious.

    ...and to the right, what I'm drinking this weekend instead of beer. :(
