Glad they made the trip. Some iTrader feedback would be appreciated if you have a chance. *wink, wink, nudge, nudge* All four are good, IMO, but the barleywine is something really special.@imasickboy
Received my package today. Thank you, looking forward to trying these.
I'm glad that everything made it safe. Hope you enjoy your prize, and the HBs.My package is heading out tomorrow, I have kept the recipient updated.
It never fails when I setup a trade or shipment I never get it out when I intend. It doesn't help that the nearest UPS is 20 miles from here.
I will put a disclaimer when I trade stating it may take awhile, but I am good for it.
I received my shipment today, via USPS non the less.
Everything made it without issue.
I will get in on this again.
I got mine!!! Nickbtag's Belgian Quad was killer!!! Ravens Roost is killer!!!! I cant wait to try the Dark Hollow!! Thanks Nickbtag, thanks Scturo!!!!!! I cant wait to do it again!!!
Finally got a chance to get into one of these. This beer is different. I don't get much coffee... but it's damn good.
I'm going to save the Crusher for this weekend.
Thanks again @Thorrak!
I let it sit for about 30 minutes while I made a starter, and the coffee definitely came through more when it was a little warmer. The crusher is in my sights for the fights tonight.Interestingly, the coffee notes began to come through once we tried one of the (warmer) cans at home -- not sure if it was the can or the serving temp that made the difference in this case.
In any case, glad everything made it there in once piece. Enjoy the Crusher
That's the way it should beI won't be opening anything I received until a bottle share on December 10th. And I'm pretty certain most ratings from that night, (except the first few), will be inaccurate.
Cheers! I got you on there, happy drinking!afro_lou on Untappd!
I try to check in to all my trades there.
Scturo, I would have loved to have joined in but being somewhat new here I didn't feel it would be fair until I am able to add more to this community.
I just wanted to say thank you for this excellent idea. I'm a regular in a non-beer forum where we do have an ongoing beer appreciation thread (for around 5 years now). I took your idea to the guys there and we're about to do this very same beer share, but without the glassware. Hopefully it'll go as well as this one seems to have gone.
Maybe down the road I'll join in here if this continues.
I'd do this again.
Yeah, round 2!!!
I think a new thread should be started for Round 2. Makes it easier to follow and the Round 1 thread should be linked in the OP.
It's hard to argue against this! As offered earlier in the thread, I'll help out and run this round.As long as round two is also linked here so I can be sure to find it.
I like the changes. Would you remove the glassware component? That was one of the things I really enjoyed about the first run.To make things a bit cleaner/easier/more fair, I'm recommending the following changes:
- Each offering should be 2-4 cans or bottles of commercial beer, at least one of which would ideally be local
- Each offering can additionally contain homebrew (optional)
- During the raffle, a submitted picklist will be followed after 3 minutes unless you request otherwise
- Each raffle pick must be submitted within 30 minutes or the pick rotates to the end of the queue
Nope. I agree - the glassware is a neat component, even if it does complicate shipping a bit.I would like to be included in round 2 as well.

I read through the whole thread and didn't see anything stating specific posting requirements. I saw where they denied someone else the last time because he had just joined and only had 1 post, but no set requirements. Did I just miss it?Requirements were posted on Page 1 or 2. Included post count and permission from one who is running the thread if you are newer to HBT and some other quirks
Basically, just to be on the safe side it's "be an active participant in the community". Generally, that means have more than a certain number of posts over a certain stretch of time. Unfortunately, I don't think you're quite there yet, but perhaps in time for round 3!What are your requirements for participating in this?
Oh man, do I love me some Grimm ales.I'll be in for round two, I'll get my offer together closer to the date but I'm thinking it will be a crowler of a Grimm sour. I just found out I get % off shipping for being a member of American Chemical Society, FTW.
