    One more question for my target. Which is your favorite fruit? Peach? Raspberry? Cherry?

    Luckily I am working from home today, so I could intercept the UPS driver who was about to destroy my porch. Turns out @PassMeAZima was my sender and dropped an incredible box on me.



    The unwrapped bottles include:
    Dogfish Head - Oak-Aged Vanilla World Wide Stout
    Enlightened Despot - Russian Imperial Stout
    Southern Grist/Aslin - Pushing Buttons
    Odd Side Ales - Apricot Dank Juice
    Westbrook - Key Lime Pie Gose
    Bearded Iris - Mood Ring
    Cantillon - Rose de Gambrinus (Fuck yeah. I'm excited for my first Cantillon)
    Side Project Brewing - Fencerow

    And a bad-ass Ethereal Brewing t-shirt.

    Thank you, Jason, for this incredible box. I can't even begin to imagine what the wrapped bottles are if these are extras.

    Turns out I am the good Doc's target. This arrived today:



    The extras have me excited, I've had six Weldwerks offerings but none of their hoppy/canned stuff.

    Thanks Mike, I can't wait for this to get started!

    Digging into another extra from @Bum4ever. New brewery tick, and always enjoy dimensions hazy hops!



    Just cutting out labels for home brew. Pay no attention to the pile of beer in the background.

    Okay to my target I realized after wrapping your box that I forgot to label the bottles so I drew you a map on the back of the address label. So remove the label before opening the box and removing said contents. Or you can just drink as you want.
    Am I still on peoples lists as a possible sender? I'm pretty sure my target is on to this old dog.

    Started digging in to the extras from @PassMeAZima tonight. First up: Mood Ring by Bearded Iris. Very heavy on the berries, but has a nice bitter touch at the end. I really dug this one and it was a new brewery tick (as are all but Dogfish Head from my box).



    Second is Apricot Dank Juice by Odd Side Ales. I don't get much apricot flavor, but it's still a decent IPA.

    Hope you like em! And I did the days a little different. The bottles aren’t labeled by day, but by ABV. Figured you could pick your poison that way. If you want more details about a particular bottle (style, etc) just lemme know. I have a list
    Cheers!

    After an extremely long and shitty day of work I was finally able to get my Summer Sixer box from @mervmurry home and open. You sir, are a mad man!



    Thanks for the letter and birthday wishes, nice personal touch.

    7 wrapped beers and an extra of Duende, love me some Creature Comforts!

    Extras include ‘16 & ‘17 BBA Dark Charge, Canus Mexicanus, DB (!) Black Maple with matching JO’s glassware, and a special birthday surprise that I couldn’t wait to open.

    Wow! A bottle of Eagle Rare for my birthday! Thanks Michael, much appreciated. Can’t wait to dig in to all of this.

    Cheers!

    The bad news first: Box arrived from @bstoos today, but it was wrapped about 10 times with a note attached.
    [​IMG]

    One bottle broke and soaked the box.
    The good news is that @bstoos used USPS and they still delivered the box. Had it been fedex, this bad boy would have probably been gone for good.

    [​IMG]

    All new ticks on the extras and the 6 day line-up has me intrigued. Only one man down, unfortunately it was the July 4th bottle. Based on the smell and the label, it sounds awesome.

    [​IMG]

    Can't wait to get this thing started. Thanks @bstoos!

    @smanson56 is right. I'm in Ithaca with semi-regular travel to Buffalo. I have never really spent any time in the Hudson Valley region outside of passing through on my way to Boston a couple times.
