    Its worse when you buy online then trade and send your own box with fedex imo. I usually ship out 12-pints/bombers to chi for 18 bucks from boston.

    just drank upright brewing captian beefheart.

    Made with charred beef hearts

    from their site

    "Captain Beefheart is a collaborative brew between Jason McAdam of Burnside Brewing and Alex Ganum of Upright, both of whom can be described as meat enthusiasts. The idea behind Captain Beefheart was to create a complex beverage with savory flavors rooted in the kitchen. We started with a malty copper colored base and added Turkish bay leaf, long pepper, and sixty pounds of charred beef hearts to the kettle boil. Rounding it all out was a fermentation carried out by a soft finishing Scottish ale yeast. The beer drinks with pleasant aromatics from the spices and has a light minerality accentuated by the pound of salt also thrown in the kettle. 5.85%"

    [​IMG] That sounds like one of the most unique beers I have ever heard of. I'll have to try and track that down. How was it?

    It doesn't sound right to me. That much protein floating around in the mix would wreak havoc.

    A google search of "Captain Beefheart Beer" returns some legitimate looking results.

    Beer was quite delicious. I would certainly recommend.
    Wasnt overtly beefy, just a nice savory flavor, like a post roast meal aftertaste?

    the fucking nerve of this company (letspour.com)...following up on my previous post here:

    - 1/29 Order ships
    - 1/30 My refund is $5 short, so I email them
    - 1/31 They email me back, confirming that they made a mistake in issuing the refund. They then have the gall to ask if I want the refund issued as a credit to my account with them - no, I want it back on my credit card!

    I keep thinking there's space for an online marketplace for craft beer. Hopefully someone can manage better than these guys.

    (OK, I'm saving that for another night).

    Slowly drinking a Bourbon County (Goose Island) 2012 - after the InBev takeover. Still delicious.
