just got a nice little package from Jake in San Fran. thanks man!
Zbeetleman just destroyed me with this box. The Parabola and Barrel Aged Speedway Stout were EXTRAS.
I can't thank you enough Chris!
Anxious to try this:
IP trade in KC.
Sour in the Rye w/ Kumquats
BA La Petite Mort
'12 120 Min
'11 World Wide Stout
Plead the 5th
I love this time of year
Must do as the can says and drink from a stein!! I bust out my favorite one every year just to drink SurlyFest
Small haul over the last few days, mostly Pipeworks.
Awesome box from Beer365
Great Ip trade here in Smallbany with BGsWo22
Not a haul, but a decent pick up
Went to the store and bought a case of Wild sour ale.....
Then I bought 4 more....
Then I did a small tasting....
Then my buddy hooked me up with this when I was in San Francisco...
Then I went to Paris...
Bro'ing down hard.
Big thanks to libbey. I'll enjoy these.
She didn't. That's the US distributed bottle. US labeling laws prohibit nudity, among many other things.
Is this the US release or a bottle from Belgium?
Three on the left are new to me. This site doesn't give high ratings for them, but I'll be the judge of that...
I bought one in the US recently, and she's nekkid.
Awesome trade with elbrooksie! Thanks so much man! Super pumped for everything in this box. All never hads. All major wants!
Some Almanac fresh hop ipas:
I got a good porch BOMB !!!! Thanks again Dave ! Bahnfire hooked it up again!
Nightshift Somer Weisse
Nightshift Ever Weisse
I've got some drinking to do with some friends !
I don't post in this particular thread often since my hauls are generally very pale in comparison, but in the last month or so, I've scored some great stuff:
Framboise de Amorosa, Sucuba, Bottleworks XII, Oude Tart w/ Cherries, Cable Car, Cable Car Kriek, Duck Duck, 2011 Cantillon Kriek (now empty), 2012 St. Lam, 2013 Cuvee Saint Gilloise
To be honest, I'm not too sure. If it helps there's zero English in the little hang tag dangling from the bottle.
Thanks! I have a couple bottles coming from Belgium currently but I know it had a US label approval a month or so ago.
Wow, which Binnys????
In trade with BeerGreg - Thanks again!
Awesome haul yesterday from johnnyramirez! Trade started with the DDG and then the Alpine IPAs when Johnny mentioned he was going there. We agreed on a few of the beers on each end, then just said we'd each fill a 6-shipper with roughly $4$. I was not expecting the BA Odin's Raven at all. Thanks Johnny!
Two extra cases weren't picked up by El Catador members who emailed within 3 minutes of the set time to receive one of 1,000 bottles. These two cases were bought within twenty minutes of hitting the tasting room on a Wednesday morning at 11AM with no prior notification it was going out. Counting myself among the extremely lucky right now.
That's because a lot of people on this site rate like this:
Best beer ever: 5
Excellent beer: 1
Good beer: 1
Shitty beer: 1
Yep... I figured that out after a few months on this website. I'm gonna form my own opinion.
*actually most of the reviews aren't bad but the overall Ba ratings are low.
some stuff for a trade and for myself..
1x Jack's Abby 2nd Anniversary Lager
4x Jack's Abby Hoponius Union
4x Founder's Breakfast Stout
6x Saison Voisin
From a liquor store in MA. The manager gave me the 6-pack of Saison Voisin for $5 so I felt it was a bad idea to turn it down even though it may not be anything special.
having minor surgery on Friday, so I stocked up for the recovery afterward. thanks to all of you that hooked me up!
my climbing wall in basement won't be used much over the next few months, so it's going to be a temp. cellar
close up shot: (case of bcbs, 8 backwoods, and one Bigfoot)
and these four little packages as well
Thanks to traders (Mike, John, Cody and McG) for the awesome suds. I bought Smutty, Wulver and Sculpin.
Hope all goes well, Thomas, and I can already tell you that I'm quite optimistic about your recovery!
Todays haul from a regular trading buddy. Can't wait to try the Heirloom!
Drooling over the Cable Cars, enjoy and congrats on the pick up!
Small by satisfying haul.
Forgot to throw this up the other day, a new mini haul
Schneider Weisse Original Tap 7
De Molen Lente Hop
Mikkeller Cascade Single Hop IPA
Parallel 49 Lord of the Hops
Huge box of surprise beers from CoolEthan in California!!! Wow, this was my first trade not knowing what beers to expect and he destroyed! I will be returning the favor next time around since he just raised the bar :
BBA Speedway Stout
Farmer's Reserve #2
Farmer's Reserve #3
Uncle Jacob's Stout
Duet (had this last night and really dug the Simcoe flavor with the light malt)
Now time to plot ! Thanks again CoolEthan!
Some great goodies received a few days ago from Spartan13 (picture taken after having already done some damage to the Inspired Artist 6-pack)...thanks for giving me the chance to try some major wants of mine, Matt! Hope the Flower Power (and the extras) treat you well when they arrive tomorrow
Big thanks to boomer31 for hooking me up with all 6 first time, big time wants
