Will be on its way Wednesday, half packed, and I found some fun stuff "on the shelf" in Asheville this past weekend to add...

Technically speaking, perfect timing would have been a year ago.  But we get where you are coming from

Out for delivery... figured since I screwed up so badly and was late, might as well screw up more and forget about any limits... hope you enjoy!

Didn't see any signs of leakage, so I assume everything made it intact.  Didn't have time to open it since I had family over last night.  Thanks Jim! :cheers:

And here I thought the OfS BIF couldn't go down hill any more.   :doh:

From my point of view, it could still get much worse.  :P

Here is the massive amount of beer I got, minus one of the Westbrook Goses, which I drank already.



Terrapin Liquid Bliss
Wicked Weed Genesis
Wicked Weed Passiflora Blanc
Wicked Weed Oblivion
Cigar City Florida Cracker x2
Cigar City Invasion x2
Westbrook Gose x3
Westbrook One Claw x3
Yellowhammer Hop Revival
Straight to Ale Cabernet Barrel Aged Laika
Westbrook Mexican Cake
Terrapin/Green Flash Tangerine Dreamsicle
Straight to Ale 4
Sweetwater Hash

Awesome box that was well over the limit and well worth waiting for.  Very unusual for me, I haven't tried ANY of these beers.  Really wanted to try Wicked Weed and excited especially to try the Westbrook stuff as well.  Thanks a ton Jim! :cheers:

have to say that having Westbrook One Claw around has been a nice surrogate for not having access to Surly Bitter Brewer... its become one of my favorite things to crush lots of, interested to see if you see the similarity...

Crushable for sure, but I don't really think they taste all that similar.

well, its been a while since I had a fresh BB, and admittedly, the rye probably does make it different...

You send that crap back right now, wait what?   that looks like awesome beer.  This thread was supposed to be about "Off the bottom of the shelf" BIF.   I don't go to watch the Cubs win, that would ruin it.

Mmmmmm, Sparkletini.   :excited:

:sadbanana:


 :lol: Thanks for posting the pic. Most of those were just pulled or about to be pulled from shelves because of the date code. That's why I said it took me so long to get them all together because I had to search through a lot of cans / bottles.

I figured when you called bullshit on my delay I would have a little fun. I don't know about the Roy Pitz beer but I figured I should put some craft in there somewhere.

Enjoy the beer!  :lol:

Finally drank the Sparkletini on Sunday night.  It was damn good!

I also ticked it on Untappd :bag:
