    This is a reasonable excuse not to return to work, right?

    Unboxing tonight!

    Woohoo! Can't wait to crack one of these!

    Thanks for the unexpected sticks, bro! I've not had any of the foundry elements, yet. So these are gonna be a treat!

    OK, first things first...this trade is INSANE!!!! I have been FAR outgunned here (return fire is guaranteed). Joshua, you are officially bestowed the title of Bombardier Extrordinaire, for this is far closer to a bomb than a trade....Insanity reigns in Kansas...and Insanity rains in California...brother...thank you from the bottom of my heart!!! These beers are virtually impossible to get in SoCal barring highly questionable and most likely illegal activities. I will enjoy them immensely!! ;)

    Haha! Yeah... I can get a little zealous about my heartland brews... I had to take a couple out because out of room and couldn't shut the box ;)

    Your packaging was awesome...we lost one soldier...a Tank 7 leaked a bit prolly due to air pressure?? The box stayed dry...the beer stayed inside but nothing else was wet thanks to your wrapping of the bottles...great job!!

    That stinks...

    Like the cap leaked or the glass cracked?

    Would duct taping the cap down have saved it? Or did it hiss out under? I read someplace a suggestion about taping the caps...

    I have to admit I had more than one "what if I packed too much in there" moment (and subsequent visions of smashed glass) this week...

    Did the sticks stay dry, or did they get messed up?

    Yeah, I found a partial box of grimalkins at an event last summer, so I snatched them up. Gunslinger is one of the house brands of a really nice lounge around here. After gunslinger, there was black powder (I think) which I quite enjoyed. I think the other two are new (or maybe I'd just never noticed them before). Let me know what you think.
