But I hope you leave enough room for my fist, because I'm going to ram it into your stomach!!!

Kruster did an awesome thing. I'm really blown away.
As luck would have it I have only had 1 of these and that was the serendipity which I opened earlier this week. Everything looks like it's amazing. I'm pumped to try the meads too.



Where did you get your bottle shipper?

Phew, looks like all my freaking out paid off and caused it to arrive safely (no departure scan and they didn't drop it off til like 11pm my time, tryna give me a panic attack??). HatfulOfHollow sent me the shipper last year and someone sent it to him before that I believe. In case you noticed that only half the bottles were bubble wrapped, it's because I couldn't close the box with the big ones wrapped.

Coupla notes since the piece of paper was too small:
-The Blackrocks cans are local in that they're brewed in my city, couldn't resist throwing a lovely Local Brown Ale in there too (although it's actually really good if you like coconut) and they only say SPECIAL because they were singles, not old.
-I found out after the fact that Black Husky bottles have exploded in the past (rarely, but still) if not kept cold, so be sure to chuck it in the fridge.
-Your untappd nearly caused me a freakout, who woulda thought you'd have had so many things from the Midwest way down there in AZ?

Anyway happy beermas!!!

MOURN!

Everything came in OK! Wonderful.

Sadly I had to get a little creative with your box.

The Eclipse is a 2014 Four Roses barrel edition purchased last Feb when I visited Truckee.

Enjoy!

Of course I didn't think to check the FiftyFifty website...

Even though it was pretty creative packaging it was secure and it all got here okay. Thanks again!

Forgot to mention with all the type 3 diabeetus I gave myself on chrimbus, my bonus was Peppermint Victory at Sea! Accordingly I drank it that night and it was pretty drat good. Also the candy canes and starlight mints drawn on the wrapper make perfect sense now

Unfortunately, I need to be at the office all afternoon so I probably won't have my hands on it for hours.

Story time, folks!
So the UPS guy stopped by this afternoon and tried to hand off a tiny box to my wife. Mrs. Doctor, N+1th Doctor, and baby N+1.1th Doctor saved the day and got the correct package and I got this box of awesome from ReaperUnreal:


Look at all this stuff!

We got paper, we got bubble wrap, and I'm set on crosswords for a year!

Oh, also there were a bunch of Canadian brewery bottles and a can in it, too:


Thank you so much, Reaper! You're awesome and I can't wait to dive into these bad boys. I have the IPA in the fridge right now for a nightcap, and now I'm set on stouts for the next month!
Mrs. Doctor has already laid claim to the bottle (howler?) from Beyond The Pale. She thinks it looks super neat.

Lt. Tofu should be receiving his box at his holiday vacation destination today. Fedex tracking hasn't updated since I dropped the box off Saturday and it was scheduled to be delivered today.

Kruster tells me he had the same issue and the package was delivered, so i'm waiting another day before I start worrying about all that precious beer.

No need to worry anymore! Fedex dropped off your box while I was out hiking yesterday, and what a haul it was. Merkin Muffley did some detective work to make sure I haven't had any of these beers!

Phew!!! I started stressing when I checked this morning and it switched to "No Scheduled Delivery" Glad it all arrived intact!

Oh, and root around in the packing peanuts, there's a can of a treasured Cincinnati delicacy in there too You might have grabbed it actually, the picture isn't loading for me.

You're goddamn right it is!

Its really not chili though, but it is delicious. Pour some on a hot dog with mustard and a fuckton of cheese, or on spaghetti with beans and a fuckton of cheese. Raw onion and hot sauce are encouraged.

Oh man, I totally missed that. Going to eat that for breakfast with tons of cheese and hot sauce! Also I fixed my imgur link, so everyone can see the tapes.

Unless your dumping it on a slice of goetta (Cincy breakfast style, pan-fried with a fried egg on top and and a biscuit to use as an edible spoon), i'd save it for a drunken dinner on top of spaghetti... Cincy chili isn't really meant to be eaten by itself. Follow the recipe in the beer note I sent you and I promise you wont be disappointed.

Also, gently caress you danbanana. I'd talk poo poo about your Billy Goat Burgers, weird salad hot-dogs and pizza casseroles, but they've all been pretty good in my experience, and I kind of want to take a trip to Chicago now...
