Alan just dropped off his "box" for wining the side game:
"what's in the baaaaaax?!?!?"
I wanted to post that video clip but can't on my phone.
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!
What an unreal box from Alan! Wow.
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?
My submission to A&E to get Alan on Hoarders.
Get In my belly!!
This has me hot and bothered.
That's two insane HT haul pictures I've seen today. I can't wait to get my hands on 4 of them soon!
The first two boxes arrived this afternoon! Lots of awesome stuff I've never tried before and it's hard not to crack one open now (I'm working from home...)
- Yazoo Sue
- Yazoo Rye Saison
- Yazoo Hop Project
- Terrapin Wake 'n' Bake
- Real Ale 15th Anniversary
- Rivertown Lambic
And from NewGeneric (I believe):
- Telegraph California Ale
- Heretic Shallow Grave
- Eagle Rock Revolution XPA
- Kern River Class V Stout
- Hangar 24 Barrel Roll
- Drake's Denogginizer
Awesome, thanks guys!
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
Hahaha... Wait, fuuuuck!
Man, that's rough, but rules are rules
Wasn't in anyone's wants. So I think it was an honest mistake that should be forgiven.
I'll get another BA to vote on that discrepancy. Stay tuned..
That box was from me, abraxel. I have a tendency to do that. Hope you enjoy!
I came home to a surprise box on my back steps--I think it's from mnbearsfan, and it's completely freaking awesome!
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)
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!
Glad you liked. Figured I could not go wron ifbi sent wants. Sorry for the "non want"
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:
- 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
I got an awesome box from mcbeerbrew this morning:
4 pack of Heady Topper (My favorite DIPA and a Big Want!)
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!
"Studying" is going well.
Imaginary Tertiary Side Game 3 for all the points:
This BA has just made me jealous.
Still think you own us like pawns in your twisted game? I refuse to be your puppet!
Edit: who is Hophead717?... Alright, what do I get?!
markasparov sent me some stuff. And I'm sending a whole bunch of stuff to him.
Enjoy HopHead, good luck with finals!
The box that I sent to markasparov should be landing tomorrow.
And it did!
Sender hooked me up with an absurdly kickass box--partly Jeopardy! haul, partly trade. In any event, here it is:
Six awesome breweries represented. Pretend the can at the far left is at the far right, and we have, L-R:

One of the Expedition Stouts is from 2007, the one with the lower batch number.
