    It's so funny that I was Dave's target. In the 6 or 7 years I've been hanging around the beer internets, I've probably exchanged more beer with Dave than pretty much anyone else. We're both constantly GPIUFMB'ing each other, and we've been in the super awesome LNBA Secret Santa BIF together for many years.

    Dave dropped a bunch of crazy fresh Tree House cans on me, as well as a couple of other surprises. I drank them fresh but will post the pics over the next couple days.

    This was fantastic and a great way to start out. So crisp.

    So KevSal dropped an entirely blind unibomber style box on my porch a few days ago.

    Along with a badass SARA shirt that I’ve been clamoring for...not sure how he knew. Bernice is not only my lady’s favorite beer, but also my grandma’s namesake.

    So I tailgated last night for N.C. State’s massive upset to Wake Forest and cracked the crowler:

    This was a pretty massive beer. Huge amount of chocolate...definitely was some kind of pastry stout. Tasted akin to a German chocolate cake...there was a nutty thing going on that I thought was peanuts. Very slick mouthfeel, but it dried out enough on the finish. As it warmed up we got a lot more vanilla.

    Everyone tried to guess what it was and the best we could come up with was some kind of rich stout from Fieldwork, since that’s local to Kev.

    Cellarmaker really knows how to do stouts. I’ve been a huge fan of Blammo and Imperial Coffee & Cigarettes in the past. We drank this in between Modem Tones w/ Vanilla and BA Affagato. I found this far more drinkable and balanced. It didn’t have the mid palate saccharine bullshit or the lingering stickiness of the others. Really great stuff, thanks KevSal !!

    Sender: Don't be alarmed by the delivery exception, I had the box held for pickup because I will be gone until sunday and my Roommate won't be here to grab it either. Can't wait to tear into it on sunday.

    Everyone else: Enjoy the opening drinking window weekend. Going to have a lot to catch up on when I get back to civilization.

    Some beverages will be consumed today. I’ve only had the crowler so far but the fresh stuff is going down tonight!

    Target, box is on vehicle for delivery just in time. Been very busy this week and came back to this thread to find the drinking window has been moved up... perfect for me since I don’t work Friday’s.

    Awesome shirt! As a reminder no haul pics. Then again KevSal made them all blind so it’s not really a pic?

    I like how it states $19.95 per year in the message, but $9.95 next to the subscribe button.

    Ahh fuck. Well heading out of town to help some friends get the fuck out of dodge from fires outside of Chico and check in on our property closer to town. Everyone is safe, but the new state of fires in California is scary AF.
