OK, I've prepared Eileen.  There will be some larger than normal shipping charges on our card soon.  :cheers:


:excited:

Need to review this to see what I've sent before.  Also need to hit troy and see if the staff at Brown's has developed a clue about filling growlers.
My friends say I'm like doing the laundry and forgetting the bleach: I'm not as bright as I could be.

Couldn't fit everything in two boxes.  3 bottles left behind.  I'll get those with Darkness/Town Hall Growlers.  78.5lbs on the way.

Been stocking up a bit for the return, but damn!  That much beer would kill Furley and likely his ancestors.

Crap.  Just realized that the Hell and Surlyfest isn't in there either.  Guess the next one(s) coming will be good sized too.  Prepare your liver.

It's preloading all week.  A few buds (the same ones I kneep trying to convince to road-trip to GTOTM with me) are coming over Sunday, so if the package gets here they'll be getting to try some samples of fine Midwestern brew.  :thumbup:

I would guess it will be there Friday or Saturday.  Friends would be perfect for the growlers and 1 litre bottles in there.

Glad everything made it intact.  Not sure how long that box will last, but it's done lots of work so far.

5 bottles in the queue already.  Just a matter of when I get to Town Hall before I send another box.

Packing up now.  I'll toss in a 2008 Bourbon County so that you have the three year vertical.

Cool.   :cheers: Don't send anything until after Thanksgiving - besides the annual trip south, going to be on the road pretty much half the time with meetings until then.  :hot:

Hoping to hit Aviator at least once or twice when I'm in Raleigh.  My bud says that their brews are seriously solid.

Two boxes were waiting at home when I got there.  Unfortunately I was leaving town as soon as I got home, so I just grabbed the growlers out and put them in the fridge.  Will report back when I get home to unpack the rest.

Cool!   :cheers:   I have a ton of stuff I snagged on the trip south - need to check if the growler I picked up at Aviator is worth sending though.  Early reports from the Wake Forest field office is that they don't last very long.  I'll be shipping on Monday. :thumbup:

I got it all packed, but since Allison was sick yesterday I didn't get it out.  Out the door today if all goes as planned.

Mystery growler is Pump Station Pale Ale.  This one's in their standard lineup, just never got around to sending it before. 

Def. the third time for Gorges - they changed the recipe again.  A bit smokier this time - sent more for cooking than drinking, as it kicks ass in chili or BBQ sauce.  Reminds me, I need to dig out that recipe for you.  :thumbup:

Glad they make it intact - I went to town on the packaging for the LeBleu as I wanted to make sure that one made it in one piece.  Enjoy!   :cheers:

:cheers:  The sheer volume of good beer that has been sent, primarily by TT, is scary.  :hifive:

Agree w/ the Rye Hopper - had that last time south.  maybe I'm picking up different flavors in the Gorges, or maybe it's just that I don't get to drink it enough. :shrug:

Decided to wait a week in case I find something else to send while in Madison this weekend.  Maybe I'll be able to grab a bottle of Four for you as well. :cheers:

Wanted to send this week, but given the 80 degree temp expected Friday I'll wait until Monday.  should be able to get some of the Pump Station Gose if you're interested.  May be a 1L bottle rather than a growler, not sure yet.  :cheers:
