    My wife reports receiving 2 big boxes! She said something like "our porch is destroyed!" I am lamenting the fact that I won't be home until late tomorrow night. We may have some late night pr0n tomorrow...

    Oh just to be clear also, my wife was a bit mad, because the boxes were very heavy and blocking her way into the house.

    :D Awwww yeahhh....

    Killer box from themunjoy landed at my door today! Thank you very much! Impressive packing skills too. So much beer came out of a fairly small box. I was surprised I kept finding more in there.

    Picture time

    All together with the blue chisel point sharpie (want) found amongst the packing material.

    [​IMG]

    Prairie Hop (Loved everything from Prairie, always want to try new things from them.)
    Oxbow Sasuga (I love saisons, another new one.)
    Allagash Fluxus (Ale brewed with blood oranges? Yes please!)

    [​IMG]

    Rising Tide Spinnaker (Never had anything by Rising Tide, looking forward to it.)
    Pretty Things Jack D'or (Another new saison, themunjoy knows what I like!)
    Cambridge Brewing Co. The Audacity of Hops (Belgian DIPA sounds delicious)

    [​IMG]

    Next up some Maine Beer Company treats, I have had a few from them and always welcome more!
    MO
    Lunch
    Collaboration Time III

    [​IMG]

    Founders Breakfast Stout (always want this one)
    Founders KBS (always want this one even more!)
    Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA (Never had this before, but have been wanting to!)
    Allagash Coolship Red (Easily the most exciting thing in the box! I have been wanting this for some time, thank you!)
    Rising Tide Phobos & Deimos (Another new saison, I love it!)
    Sixpoint 3Beans (Coffe in beer is a wonderful thing!)

    This is an absolutely killer box. Every beer is a want or hits a favorite style of mine. So many are new to me. Thank you!

    Grab some lube, turn down the lights, and make sure your wife/girlfriend/boyfriend/children isn't around.

    Or don't, some of us like to live on the edge.

    Fortunately for me, I like all shapes and sizes.

    For those of you that still havent blown your load, lets keep this going a little bit with a full haul list.

    Southern Tier Choklat - Need to add this to my wants. Had this for the first time on my birthday, and just recently had Mokha. Damn tasty beer.
    Duck-Rabbit Milk Stout - Style want, love me dem Milk Stouts.
    O'Connor Brewing Green Can Golden, Norfolk Canyon Pale, Great Dismal Black IPA, and Red Run Red - Never heard of this brewery, and the reviews are all over the place so I'm definitely curious.
    St George Brewing Company Imperial Pale and Imperial Bock - Again, never heard of this brewery, but I do like dragons.
    Three Heads Brewing Too Kind DIPA - As is a recurring pattern, never heard of this brewery or this beer. Looking forward to yet another tick.
    Foothills Brewing Pumpkin - Pumpkin beers are in general pretty polarizing for me, I either love them (and when I do JUSTHOOKITTOMYVEINS.jpg) or a I hate them. As a gambling man, I can't wait to flip this coin.
    Devil's Backbone Eight Point IPA - Ticker's gonna tick brah.
    Sixpoint Brewery Resin - Had this for the first time at the Canned Beer Fest in Phoenix earlier this year, loved it fresh.

    And to top it all off, a bottle of hombrew vanilla rootbeer. I'm assuming non-alcoholic?

    Easily the sexiest Box in a Box packing job I've ever seen, everything was in a manilla enevelope lined with bubblewrap. I'm rather amazed at everything Mr StoutSeth was able to fit in there. I've shipped 12 bottle styro's full of 750's that weighed less! (Hint?).

    Thanks for the porch bomb, man!

    So I'm sitting here looking at porn, getting comfortable, and I ask myself- what would make this better? Beer, right?! So I pop open the Alewerks Bourbon Barrel Porter that richardflyr sent me and..... HOLY SHIT!!!! This beer is fantastic. Do yourself a favor and add it to your wants and seek it out. You will NOT be disappoint. That is all. Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.

    Well the FedEx man was on his game getting me a box before I went to work. I believe they must have fired it out of a cannon or drug it to me from Ohio as you can see from the box.

    Open it up and smell serious beer and it is damp. Mother effer, at least they didn't exception it. Luckily it was just one 12oz of Perpetual IPA which although great, I've had before. Everything else was in perfect shape as you can see below. A great combo of wants and the best that Ohio has to offer locally. Thanks again mister Radio2525. Or as you are in my head, a well dressed cat.

    Welcome to the club! BBP comes out twice a year, aged in Virginia Gentlemen barrels (or so I hear) and you'd be the 3rd or 4th person I've given/traded/extra'd a bottle to that has immediately said "I WANT MORE!" Plentiful in Williamsburg (in its season), limited most everywhere else.

    Also, if you think those are good, Cafe Royale (BBA Coffee Stout, sometimes in the barrels used by BBP, sometimes new barrels) and Bitter Valentine (Galaxy Hopped DIPA) from Alewerks are also both phenomenal. I didn't have any, or I would have definitely included them in the BIF box, over most of the Hardywood beers.

    I am so happy you opened it soon, and that you loved it. If you want more, we can easily work out a trade I am sure.

    Glad it made it ok. Might want to have your wife open the square one and get a certain fake sue in the fridge. Though if you're concerned about her seeing a large number of beers, you may also want to wait...

    Thanks for the advice, but I think that might be pushing it, having her dig through your packing job. It was on the road for a few days, it can last another 24 hours! I hope...

    As for her seeing a huge amount of beers, I can't wait! :D

    Now that RayOhioFelton received his box, I'm pretty sure I can do away with hints, but where's the fun in that?

    The losing record I previously mentioned was regarding the 2013 season. One of those teams has a pretty intense rivalry with one of my state's teams.

    What times of year does it come out? Because I'm definitely taking you up on that. It's really a phenomenal beer. I'd love to have a couple more bottles of it.

    Uh, BBP just came out. I think it has a summer release, and a winter release. It usually comes out whenever it is ready. I can bury you in BBP though, when it comes out. It may still be in a shop near me, I can check. Typically $9 a bottle. Hit me up on BM if you want and I'll check around!

    Uncle Jacobs Stout (love it)
    Surly SYX (new one for me, excited to try!)
    Coast blackbeerd (new to me)
    Bcbs 2012 (always a treat)
    Black Butte XXV (had the 24 the other week, so excited for this guy)
    Contact High (I can dig it)
    Black Butte Porter (oh how nice it will be to try the cleaner less slutty Butte)
    CCB Marshal Zhukov's (love it, so pumped to see this come out the box!)
    DFH 120 (I know just what to do with this guy!)
    Avery The Beast Grand Cru....2009!!!! Shit, very pumped, thank you for this one.
    DFH World Wide Stout (looking forward to this guy for sure)

    I can not get any of these beers in Ohio, only had 4 of them and two of those were different batches. Thanks for some new experiences.

    Packing for Vegas in the morning.

    Got a twelve bottle shipper now, think it is safe to check on Southwest and bring home bottles in or should I just wrap um and bag um?
