Well, now that Cheeto received it, I can post a pic of what we sent him. Not all of these items made it into the box....there simply was not enough room.



We also sent him another box equally full of goodies for the Secret Santa swap, but I never took a picture. We sent him, coffee (french roast, and Jack Daniels flavored), a french press(for the coffee), all beef summer sausage (no pork products allowed), a mini christmas tree, doughnuts, misc snacks, A Belgian (chocolate bar, not beer), chicken Vienna sausages, etc, etc., etc.

Sent Petey a box of goodies last week. The green flip tops are from Soperbrew. The Wit is labeled W, Belgian Pale Ale is A (BYO Antwerp ale from June, it's very good with age), Triple Six Oaked Tripel is the T. I'm probably forgetting one or two. Let me know if you want any of the recipes. I also included some local micros. Hope you enjoy for the holidays.

Well guys, I've been home on leave for 12 days now. I head back to the box on saturday. I just want to say how cool it is that you guys are doing this. I know I have received packages from loved ones and they are always great. Cant wait for my return and getting back to brewing!

I wish I would have know about this earlier! I got back from a 13 month tour back in NOV08 and the whole time I dreamed about brewing. I am glad to be on this forum and have gained so much knowledge, and have had just as many laughs. I would have love to be able to see where my brew stands against some veteran brewers like yours. That would be a way to learn as well. I will be off to Germany in JUL09 and that will be an adventure in its own!

A few things that I loved while deployed...

Food spices (as said before) ie, tapatio, and homemade hot sauces are great (hotter the better, entertainment as well as flavor)

Jerky (homemade was always appreciated the most)

Magazines were also awesome.

Cup o noodles and the like were great as well.

I can promise what ever you send will be enjoyed and shared, HONESTLY the action itself really means a lot. The fact that this is even happening is very inspiring. I was in a hostile beer-less nation, I can't think of anything more patriotic then what you are doing!

Let me know whose coming back and what I need to do to send out some of my n00b homebrew. I think I might be able to share a sixer or so...

God Bless you all and Cheers Cake! Happy brewing!

Now thats a package that could help bring a dude back from the depths of any depressing funk he might be in! I see Tapatio! Thats whats up! This is amazing! That will help someone remember what home is all about! Bless all of you. I forgot to mention Ziploc baggies, im sure it was said already in this 12 page thread. Good looking out! ZipLoc's are great!
