    I learned two things today. One, that I'm an idiot, and two, you can't embed images on BA from a iphone.

    So Alan was very kind enough to go out of his way to even give out a "best of the losers bracket" box, but even kinder to have filled it with ridiculously good and super easy to get beer.

    6 Alchemist Heady Toppers
    Lawson's - Big Hapi Black IPA
    Lawson's - Permagrin Rye Pale Ale
    Hill Farmstead - Everett Porter

    Never had any Lawsons or Hill until today, so very psyched for that. Thanks Alan!

    Worst car passenger of all time..

    Also I'm disappointed you did not fake lead with all the heady topper we brought back to MA. Can we get a pic of that?

    Man, you lucky Nashville is full of hipsters who don't drink Keystone... I wanted to send you some but no one I knew had any and I wasnt about to spend that money on a new case... Enjoy!

    Also, thats Hop Project 64 so if you drink fast you can add that to the database!

    Sorry buddy but I amended the rules REQUIRING keystone to be put in every box. Unfortunately after consulting with another BA we have decided you will just have to send another box :p

    I came home to a surprise box on my back steps--I think it's from mnbearsfan, and it's completely freaking awesome!

    L-R:

    New Glarus Wisconsin Belgian Red (Big Want)
    Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti (Huge Want--this had to be one of my top wants. 2010 bottle.)
    Three Floyds Behemoth (Big Want--no label for year, but judging from the wax, it's a 2011.)
    RR Damnation (Big Want)
    Bell's Expedition Stout (Want--I love this beer.)
    KBS (Such a big Want that my girlfriend, who knows nothing about beer, said something like "oh, look--you want this one" when she unwrapped it. 2011 bottle.)
    Founders Backwoods Bastard (Want)
    Zombie Dust (Want--my first ZD! I doubt it's going to last the night.)
    New Glarus Cran-bic Ale (Want!)
    Founders All Day IPA (Literally the only beer here that wasn't a Want. And it looks awesome.)
    Dark Horse Pt5 (Want. I'm a lawyer, and a criminal defense nerd. Plus I love big stouts. That's a no-brainer. 2010 bottle)

    [​IMG]

    This is an amazing box, mnbearsfan! Thank you so much--if you ever find yourself looking for ANYTHING from the northeast or from my own (paltry) cellar, let me know!

    I've been blown away recently by the generosity (and the cellars!) of so many folks here on BA--this incredibly awesome box is a great example of why. Thanks again!

    After a weekend of deliberation, I've determined everybody must send me a box containing at least 1 Non-keystone non-hip bottle of excellent beer, and at least one slice of pizza from their local pizza shop, so that I can judge the best regional pizza.

    Final final double triple final jeopardy question: Who does number two work for?

    And here's IrishColonial with a fantastic box of bottles and cans:

    [​IMG]

    - Weyerbacher Insanity
    - Williamsburg Alewerks Bitter Valentine
    - DC Brau The Corruption IPA
    - Alchemist Heady Topper
    - Oskar Blues Ten Fidy
    - Firestone Walker Sucaba
    - Troegs Nugget Nectar

    I think that's four wants, including a few perma-wants (I'm so sad Ten Fidy and Nugget Nectar don't get to Michigan), and a few I don't know anything about, but which sound great. The Heady Topper is in the fridge and will be opened shortly :)

    Thanks!

    Maine Lunch (Big Want)
    Hill Farmstead Everett (My first HF offering--a Want)
    Maine Mean Old Tom
    NEBCO Gandhi-Bot (Should have been a Want)

    What a great box--thanks a lot, Mike!
