    I think that's the case or at least mostly so, which would mean our second permanent or mostly-permanent tap!

    That reminds me that I should mention here as well that we opened ~25 memberships for next year and details are on our Facebook and Instagram pages!

    Score! Thanks Thorpe !

    Now, any if you fine gents or gentle ladies willing to proxy for a new member? Will do my best to make it super simple, easy, and worthwhile for you.

    Not sure if anyone has reached out to you, but I'd be willing to proxy for you. I haven't proxied for anyone else before, but I'm certain members here would vouch for me with shipping beer.

    All I'll need is a label (or labels pending how often you want the beers).

    Let me know,
    Kevin

    If Nivek43 falls through I can help you out. I trustee for 4-6 others (depending on the release) in the society. Only thing I ask is a label and possibly an empty shipper every once in a while since sending out half a dozen shippers every month or two really depletes my shipping supplies.

    Hey guys, newbie to talkbeer but the guys at afterthought told me to look for a proxy here. ISO proxy willing to ship USPS, either flat rate or priority mail to Hawaii. I pay for shipping and will send ty boxes. Cheers!

    Your best bet is likely The Beer Temple, they received a pretty large delivery last week.

    Some other places to look would be Beermiscuous, Bottles and Cans (though not sure that they have much available) and Garfield's Beverage Express in Bucktown.

    BdP #13 is the best Afterthought beer I've had. All 4 of these new member beers are amazing though.
