Upon closer inspection I saw that it was a re-purposed Amazon box, sealed up like Ft. Knox. I picked it up and could tell there was liquid inside and became giddy like a school girl. I almost feel bad posting this, being the first recipient, because my SS hooked it up so awesomely that everyone else is going to be disappointed. On the other hand, it could set a good bar for those who haven't shipped yet.
Very, very stoked at the selection; particularly considering distribution here. The unlabeled bottle is a homebrew, which is legit in my book. Unfortunately, I'm not feeling too well so won't be able to partake immediately, but you bet your ass that if I'm up to at least 70% on Sunday I'm going to start sampling.
Big thanks to my SS and happy holidays.

Then I saw the anchor and was like oh sweet I've always wanted to try that.
Was super excited about the sixpoint stuff too.
Then I saw the bouncy house and got a chub because I love smuttynose.
Then I saw the kiwi rising and got a full on boner.
Then I saw the heady topper and my penis exploded.
Fucking AWESOME box. Thank you so much!

Never heard of any of this stuff (which is good, since I pay zero attention to beers that I can't find within walking distance of my house). Pretty exciting to unwrap. Thanks man!
I'm guessing I don't have much time to wait on those growlers? How soon do I have to open and drink them?

Really looking forward to trying all of it, I've wanted to try the B. Nektar and Alpha King for a while, I love everything from Jolly Pumpkin and can't find it here, and I've never even heard of Vivant or Griffin Claw so those should be interesting. Thanks a lot to my sender.

Huge thanks to my secret santa (multiples not pictured):
Schlafly Winter ESB
Schlafly Pale Ale
Schlafly Dry Hopped APA
Schlafly Oatmeal Stout
Schlafly Coffee Stout x2
Bell's Expedition Stout x2
Bell's Double Cream Stout
Three Floyds Alpha King x2
Three Floyds Pride & Joy x2
Goose Island Bourbon County Stout x4
Also, a Mike's Hard Strawberry Lemonade, which I'm trying to goad my GF into drinking.
I'm especially stoked about the Goose Island Bourbon County. I've never tried it, and at 14.9% it's a blackout in a bottle if I've ever seen one.
I think omniscient cause is the only that didn't post a picture but he said in the official beer thread that he got his package and was very happy with it
I hope everybody had fun. Let's do it again this christmas!
