After Mark (USPSs Doug) got my first box for TwistedGray, I finally got another package ready and shipped today. Went brown this time, and remembered to put the glass in it. Added a few more extras because of the long delay. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Mark is a dick; okay, he is actually a nice guy...well relatively so I guess. He said and I quote, "You can probably ship beer through Fedex or UPS." We had a nice chat on the phone, and I passed Doug's contact information to Mark and vice versa. They're both really swell folks.

I'm hoping the lack of an update is due to the weather across the country over the past few days. The package is supposed to be delivered to @wstbrewing today. I don't want to be another statistic. I haven't heard anything yet, and I feel like I would have if something was wrong.

Yikes. I’ll let you know if it shows up here.

If you hear something, let me know.

I mailed a package via Brown to @wstbrewing last week and it was supposed to be delivered on Monday. It's Wednesday and it says it is still sitting at the Hartford, CT distribution center. Is it possible that it just got lost in the shuffle? Do I wait it out to see if it ends up going in the next few days? Or do I file a claim? I wouldn't imagine Hartford, CT is too busy to deliver a package in early September.

I'd wait. It may end up at whatever the sender address is; UPS Center or your home. It takes 4-5 days for the return trip in my experience. But no nasty phone calls nor letter is a plus!

Brown has never let me down before, and I didn't do anything differently. I hope you're right. OK, I'll wait it out for a few days. Hopefully they're just backed up.

I shipped, sorry for the delay and not letting you know. Left here on Tuesday and should get there Monday, weather permitting. I forgot to get the tracking number. If I find it I will PM you the information.
no worries!

OK, I think I need to make a claim. It's been one week since there has been an update and I'm a little pissed off about it. If they lost it, that's one thing, but if they've confiscated it and didn't call me or send me a letter, then what the hell is the problem?

Unless you guys say that making a claim is basically giving them a reason to locate the package and open it to find the delicious treasure, then I'll just hang loose. Otherwise, I just want them to deliver the package.

Worst case, you'll get the money back and they'll find the beer and depending on their attitude your account may get pre-flagged for beer. Thus, slightly risky
