    That's a bummer, he won a LIF from me with the only stipulation being he paid it forward at some point

    I've literally never heard of this guy before. Am I that far removed from even the TB scene?

    All things considered, his tagline is surprisingly apt.

    Does anyone know if he even actually moved here (to NJ)? That was the point of the LIF, wasn't it?

    This reminds me that I won a LIF and then nothing after a couple messages back and forth.
    Oh well.

    I got Neil Young's "Downtown" stuck in my head now, but as "Browntown" now.

    "There's a place called Browntown, where the hippies all go. . .
    Brown town lets go, Brown town, lets have a party. . .
    Brown town, ship your beer now, Brown town . . ."

    browntownz stopped by my place once after he was at HF and I found him to be a perfectly reasonable individual. However it did seem like he had a lot going on with school and work, so I can easily imagine adding a move into the mix may have caused things to slip.

    Again, just my personal casual observation and I have no real knowledge of where the guy lies in relation to reproach. Radio silence is definitely shitty. If there comes a time when there's an effort underway to send a makeup box or two to Ataraxia, someone please get me the details.

    The kind and generous Jspriest contacted me after seeing this thread and wanted to send some NJ beer. Today it arrived:

    Glad it all made it out ok! Just trying to make some small effort toward helping NJ at least slightly surpass its reputation. Hope you enjoy them!
