    I order nine 375s and I think it worked out to about $11 a bottle.

    That's not horrible.... and it seems like they are trying to rush everything out before it gets too hot. Someone said there is only one more bottle in this round of MC.

    Considering Superstition bottles sit out here for $80 a pop I don’t feel bad at all. Pretty sure I got to speak with Naegerbomb on the phone too which was pretty cool.

    I assume that if Schramms now ships to your state, you no longer need a trustee for Mazer Club purchases right?

    Naegerbomb ?

    There are plenty of reasons to continue to use a trustee, e.g. to have them pick up your bottle and wait with it in good storage conditions until a full case is assembled, etc. Also, some folks ask their trustees to pick up and add other things to their shipments, e.g. local beers, traded stuff, etc. All services that we can't provide — but I'm hoping to take some heavy lifting off of our trustees that primarily ship "to order" and don't do much else except act as a simple proxy. TBH, with the direct shipping program I was actually surprised to hear from many of the first shipping customers that they barely knew their trustees — so maybe there's a grain of truth in your statement, I don't know. Certainly I won't be shipping to Florida by ground in July (something I've already heard from some trustees that they WILL do with our product, which is dismaying). Direct shipping from us is always going to come with a personal guarantee from yours truly, and we'll apply the same high quality standards to the order/shipping process as we do with the mead itself. At the end of the day, if you have a trustee and you're in a state that we ship to my hope is that you'll have the best of both worlds and have many options to choose from.

    Working on it. Got our conditional approval already, just trying to dot our 't's and cross our "i's!

    Can anyone weigh in on who makes the tastier bourbon barrel-aged apple pie mead?

    Brothers Drake or Melovino?
