    I believe they mailed out tickets already. Did anyone get them in the mail yet?I never received

    I've been trying to find this beer for some time now (I have no idea why at this point. It's

    Not any special type of aeration... just the normal heavy shake/swirl as it's being filled up.
    Again, normally I've already got a huge heap of activity going on (and I know the yeast was
