Think 3 cases max.  I just want a case for myself and probably enough to trade 2 or 3 out to the normal crew.

I remember thinking at the xii release when they had it on tap that it was too bad it got mixed with other stuff to make xii.  Glad we'll have the chance to get it straight, but I'm not sure if I'll make it up there or not.

Well, if anyone plans on going, let me know because I'm trying to plan a meeting at the bar right next to FW.  We did this last time at FW13 and had a blast - I'll be bringing some big ol stouts (ORF, FiftyFifty Imp Stout Growler (base of Eclipse), Hunahpu, etc.).

It nears!

On a side note, I just completed a deal to get a FW10, which means if you're heading to FW for FW14, I'll be doing a full FW10-11-12-13-14 vertical at The Pour House.

SO!

Had a great day, was able to snag 2 cases for trade!

I'm reserving one case for TBS - that means that I'll need to ration out to people that have already PM'd me or posted.

Those are:


NFLMVP
thickfreakness
kpruim01
FTownStout
BigErn
RudyLaw
Dr. Rockzo

Keep in mind I only have quantity for 12 amongst all of you.  If I've traded with you already (you know who you are) you get priority - So if any of you are willing to go with just one bottle of this then please speak up now so that I can share more amongst everyone.

1-2 bottles for me is good also.  One would be fine if we have alot of people to spread it to.  Let me know what you'd be interested in the midwest. Dark Lord 09 or 10?

Alright!  Seems like I have a final list - I'll be PMing people to get things settled.

It might take me a while to get all these out because of the sheer number that I'll be sending, so please be patient.  I'm going to try to hook folks up with extras but be wary I may be a little thin on cash as my car just broke down and probably need a new transmission  :hot: :rant:
