    they do this for whatever sized box I ship. I'm pretty sure it's a requirement to put the dimensions down if you look at your receipt. I guess they could eyeball it/

    Mine was "Mexican Cocacola!" It's just what I blurted out when the guy asked me the contents, which he noted was obviously liquid. "Your friend must really miss Mexico."

    If you print the label at home, they don't ask you shit!

    Oil and vinegar is a good one. Or I suppose you could just be honest and say "yeast samples"

    Ugh... I should have done this. I thought I was going to be traveling virtually all December, but it turns out my travel for the month basically ended last week...

    In for next year.

    Also fwiw, I've found that FedEx >>>>>> UPS for shipping beer.

    Lol. So true. Have traded before, but just among local buddies. This cross-country shit ups the excitement factor fosho. Also forgot to include a note. My dood will just have to figure it out. Beer > sentiment. :-]

    Hint: Every beer is from Cali.

    Mine is almost all from ny

    Also real talk. Not all of you have said you sent a box here or in a pm I'm not gonna put pressure on you guys and ask you by pm if you sent your box but I will probably ask next Monday if you got your box. If not I'll send your sender a pm and asks whats up. I'm sure we can figure something out

    Post pics when you get your get your box tho otherwise ill prolly send a pmand see if everything's ok

    I'm half hoping for a wall of shame but I'd rather everybody got their boxes
