    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.

    IDK.
    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.

    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.

    :laugh: 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. :laugh:

    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.

    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.
