Posted in thread: F-N UPS (not quite a rant) on 12-07-2013 at 01:44 AM
I went to a FedEx location in the city to ship some beer. They had to add another box (my box
wasn't right) but it was a reasonable cost all around. I had a few things, but the lady was

Alright, here we go! I got a sweet box of beers on my porch last night. I tried the kriek last

Are we considering 100% Brett beers in this swap? There really isn't a BJCP category for these
although they tend to score best in 16E. If its up for vote, then I vote yes, especially since
