    That sun was made of pure evil. Also, shoot me your address. I may not have met up with you, but I earmarked those bottles for you and you're getting them one way or another.

    Well, if you're going to be pushy, then ok.
    I'll put them aside for the bottle share.
    Thanks!

    Somewhat beer related. I had a company (Handmade Growlers out of MT) make a growler for me a while back that had a logo of the USMC unit I served with out in Iraq along with a picture of the memorial we built out there in honor of the guys who passed while we were deployed.

    The owner for the place is a former Army officer and was more than happy to make it for me. Long story short, I had the first one filled up by a buddy of mine and for some odd reason, the bottom cut out perfectly in a circle and the beer was lost forever (really pissed cause it was Tired Hands). The owner shipped me out a replacement free of charge and same damn thing happened. I contacted him again and gave him a lot more info on what happened and I think he figured out the issue with the growler. Seems it only happened to me because none of his customers, including TV shows like Park & Recreations which featured his growlers on their show, had it happen to them. Anyway, with my feedback, it seems he reinforced the bottom and shaped it a bit differently.

    Either way, it came out friggin awesome, even better than the last one. And, he threw in a complementary flask to go along with it. If anyone is looking for a custom growler, I definitely recommend this company!

    That is one bad-ass growler.

    It's a slow Friday morning, it could get better if the box lands today and I get to live viciously through pics someone else's haul.

    @Haywire Did Shaun Hill actually ship you beer, or do you have a smart friend, or both?

    @UtisTheLaw he actually sent it to me. Apparently he was the anonymous donor in the LIF I donated to.

    At first I read this as " @UtisTheLaw actually sent it to me." I was confused, because that wouldn't make any sense.

    Reminds me of an unintentionally hilarious (and unintentionally graphic, at least in my mind) comment on a news article where the commenter referred to someone being "viscously murdered"

    Drowned in molasses, I'm sure.

    Awesome box @buzzword! Can't wait to pick six, replace the beer and tits with more beer and tits, and get everything on its way to the next target.

    Hint #1: Dear target, I haven't chosen you yet. Soon ;)

    Beers and glassware replaced, target chosen. The wait begins (again)!

    Hint #2: This box is not returning to the same state it just came from (sorry @jdhowe! )

    Well... shit just got real. Killer box, Buzzword! At first I thought you'd cheated and taken 7 things from the box, but then I remembered the rule modification...

    Sad I won't be seeing some of these delicious beers, but it's probably better that this box doesn't get to me just yet. :)

    I'm sorry I've been absent. Life threw me a curveball this week. Just checking in to remind you all that I am still winning this LIF. And WOW, I doubt we will see a better box than Buzzword's. Beautiful.

    I hate how I'm friends with so many of you on Untappd. It means I can't drink anything I took from the box until AFTER my box lands somewhere else. Whores, all of you.
