Cannot get tired of this...
Zack Zedalis I wasn't on the first page, I call shenanigans on this whole thread. We need to delete it and start another one.
Also had this little beauty after winning #15 Monday night. Have an XV I'm going to age until we win #16 a year from now
Had it at Aura in Lincoln. It's the bar connected to the Holiday Inn way out south, past 27th and Pine Lake. They are usually $3 but they gave them to me for $2 last night for some reason.
Posted this in the other thread but reposting now. Tampa people should grab some.
Someone buy me one of those.
SS part 4? Hank Scorpio
I don't know that they've put it in the tasting room fridges yet.
Thanks for not showing the sweet nothings I wrote in the note
From last night at Bier Garden. Extremely solid doppelbock
Gonna try and find the Sidamo Stout made by Hardywood. You ever seen any Hardywood on shelves in this area or if its a Richmond exclusive?
If you're in the mood to chase something, Sucks is at the TW in NN and Bourbon Barrel Porter is north of the water as well.
This is my first ever attempt
Dude at the post office asked me if there were any liquids. I said no. Coworker told me theyd scan it and Im fucked. Is this true? Pretty sure you guys said you told them it was food...
You're going to jail bro
Well I did usps....not ups
That was dumb but you'll probably be fine.
Gonna need to track this down in a few days...the whole slowing down on hurting the bank account isnt working.
The last time I was at a post office I was in the 5th grade. Live and learn.
You on the bottom of USPS
Can't wait. The 12/21 was outstanding. Will purchase more of these.
Theyll pitch it?
Relax, you'll probably be fine. Just use UPS from now and tell them it's "food" when they ask.
I'd keep it if I was a worker!
But I'd imagine they'd confiscate it and probably send you some kind of warning or something?!? Just play dumb if something happens I'd say.
Thou shalt be named hawktime or fucking friarhawk for that one haha. I wouldn't worry about it. I have a hard time believing that with how shit tier the usps is that they would legitimately take the time to scan the contents of the package.
I always say I'm shipping glass storage containers or glassware with UPS shipping.
But I found a Staples somewhat near my area that does USPS & UPS shipping and the counter is usually ran by some young fresh out of high school chick, so I have no issues at all there.
I know Ill be fine. What about the beer?!
What are you guys opinions on Smuttynose beers? Total Wine has a variety pack of Shoals Pale Ale, Portsmouth Lager, Old Brown Dog Ale, and Smuttynose IPA. Their beers have generally high ratings and was curious about this pack.
I can attest to Brocktoon being a surprisingly normal person in real life - which can't be understated. I'm also going to tag Lenwine so he can start lurking here.
Question for the thread - what's your typical shipping cost for a trade? I sent a box of 12 bottles (mixed in size) home to Michigan from CA for the holidays & had my dad ship it back to me - and it's been ~$38 each way. Just wondering if that sounds about right, or if I'm doing something wildly wrong.
Everyone seems to always have elaborate explanations of what they're shipping. Honesty, all you have to say is "food" and leave it at that, they don't care. If you happen to have some nosey weird asshole, just say soda/pop, but I highly doubt that happens.
My first shipment was to Iron Mickey and I told the lady it was "mason jars of homemade BBQ brines"...I mean what the fuck.
New thread inspired me to post. Big fan of good beer.
Other one was so large it was intimidating to jump in by that point.
They may pitch it or it may go through. All you can do now is pray.
I must note that I have received a package sent via USPS before without issue. Ive also had one that never made it to me. Either way dont use USPS again because it is illegal and more importantly its not worth losing the beer.
As long as you packaged it well, you should be fine.
Also for future reference to all, UPS has complimentary "fragile" tape that they will put on your box. Never realized this until I sent Aussie's beer for the second time. Not sure that the workers will necessarily respect it, but every little bit helps.
The same guy at UPS everytime I ship to Spaulding and he's probably wondering why I continue to send my grandmother's china to another male. :gays:
marcus I'm headed UPS shortly to send you some of my short & curly
It's illegal to ship beer regardless of the courier, just to dispell that myth haha
I tell the guy at my ups store I'm sending you glass dildos, he just laughs
Ever been to The Birch in Ghent?
The feds are investigating as we post
Planning on attending 43 hours next week. Very excite
I'm here for the gang bang..
Let me know what day you go and I'll try and meet you down there.
You shouting out "i need more cowbell!" will be much more unassuming than yelling spaulding out like you said you did last time we attempted to rendezvous when I was in town visiting More Cowbell haha
I always say collectibles
Sent my first trade last week to Fargin, UPS store guy was giving me shit because the box said '6 bottle shipper'. Told him I'm sending home made pickles, he said they if it looks like bottles UPS will open to inspect before they ship. I freaked like you for a bit:
Conclusion... Bottles were delivered 3 days earlier than the estimate with no fucks given.
That was also at The Birch if I'm not mistaken. As long as you yell with confidence like you're yelling at someone, not looking for someone no one pays attention.
Guy sounds like a pretty intense dickbag. All of the people at the three stores around me give zero fucks.
It may be a bigger issue down here, I live pretty close to the Santa Ynez wine country...
