    Anything landing today???



    On my porch?????


    Jk. I can be more patient this time around cuz I know all you folks are trustworthy, beer-sending friends that would never stand a target up. No need to be scared of getting jipped with this crew. :)

    Targets, my boxes will land next week for on Thursday I am heading to the mountains for some beer that you may enjoy. So, be patient or go to bed.
    Hint, if you rearrange my targets user names, then you can claim burpping skimmed tie

    Cheers!

    Got a big ol' box delivered to the office today, but still don't know whom it was from :mad:. Haven't opened it yet for fear of looting by my coworkers (we have a very beer-oriented culture here). My cube-mate inquired about the box's contents and I told her to fuck the hell off, because I'm not sharing.

    Pics tonight!

    Being that it involves permitting though, I imagine it would have something to do with navigating a bunch of government forms and other such bullshit. I do have experience with that.

    Yes, we specialize almost exclusively in bullshit. :D

    But a love of beer would take you far, I think.

    Somehow I thought this BIF ended on July 20. I looked a little closer, and see that it's the 26th. I'm leaving on a road trip on the morning of the 25th. No worries whatsoever if it's not here by then. The only downsides will be no pictures for 10 days or so and my little will have to carry the boxes in.

    Trying to hit the big 4 in the Cleveland area on Thursday the 25th: Hoppin' Frog, Brew Kettle, Fat Heads and Great Lakes. Unfortunately, I can't bring much back because I'll be camping in the hills of West Virginia for a week after that.

    I am glad you enjoyed the box. I was probably capable of just hitting wants, but some local distro stuff is always good to have. I figured on the Kopi it would be the WTF beer of the box. I have had it a few times and it is awesome. Just trying to share the love. The Pure Hoppiness is always a favorite of mine.

    Agreed. It's turning out to be a really crappy day at work. Some pictures of beer or even descriptions of hauls would go a long way towards getting me through this shitstorm until I get home tonight where I can commence my drinking to forget strategy.
