De Molen Single Hop Citra, he likes to really carbonate his IPAs for some reason. Makes the malt almost saison-like. Tons of carb and dried out malt.
Hitachino Nest Espresso Stout, a ton of coffee in the smell. Not surprised.
All-seeing instrument. Supreme perception. Omnifocal accumulator... Its gaze upon the blind. Information divinity by man designed.
Sorry I missed this yesterday, I've had Muffin Top Belgian Tripel IPA, Vampire Slayer Imperial Stout, and Galactica Imperial IPA. VS was my favorite, Galactica is pretty good, too. Muffin Top is solid, but I can't drink much Tripel - just not my style - though I'd have to say, it's still pretty good. The Chocolate Sombrero is supposedly really good, but I haven't had it.
You see that sign that says 'Rib Tips'??
Alright Brew Crew, due to a work requirement, I'm having a very limited run out to San Diego in August. I will not have much if any time for a brewery run, but I was thinking about packing a box and shipping it to myself.
A few questions:
1) For you traders, what is the best way to pack and ship beer? I'd like to get as much bang for the buck as possible (i.e. the most bottles in a box, shipped as inexpensively as I can without sacrificing preserving the product). Who should I ship through (UPS, USPS, Fed Ex, etc?).
2) What brews will I have access to in San Diego (love to get some Russian River, Firestone Walker, or some of the other stuff I can't get here...heady topper, anti-hero, zombie dust all ring a bell)?
3) If anyone is actually from or familiar with San Diego, where's a good place for me to go to make the purchase?
Your help is appreciated.
Roses are red, violets are blue, I'm a schizophrenic and so am I.
I live about 45-50 minutes from SD. Stone is relatively close by, but if you find a good beer store out there before you go, that's gonna be your best bet. I'd love to meet you down there for a beer or ten if you have an hour or two free on any given night that you're there.
I'll pm you my info.
No Heady or Zombie Dust out in Cali.
Don't over think it. Packing tape, a box that fits the beer w/out a bunch of extra room, bubble wrap and filler like paper or peanuts. Then FedEx or ups it. Shipped a ton and never had an issue.

I wrap the hell out of mine with bubble wrap. After having UPS damage one of my packages I go way overboard now.
I meant to include bubble wrap, I do the same. Fixed previous post

Allagash black is awesome
Very underrated beer, roasted flavor done right
Anybody ever have one of these before? I've got one chilling in the fridge, my wife gave a tour of her company to Sierra Nevada recently and got some as a gift. I'm slowly getting back into beer after about 10 years off, don't recall ever having this style.
Ratings for Ovila Quad - Brandy Barrel Aged; Quadrupel (Quad) style beer brewed by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. in Chico, CA. 91 out of 100 with 52 BeerAdvocate opinions.
I haven't had that one. Looks pretty solid.
That shit is bomb!! Can't wait to try Lunch.
I have had the regular and the one with plums. I bet the brandy would be real good. If you like it grab a Rocheforte 10, it's the best quad you can easily find.
I really like it.
I'm having a gin and tonic now, but I'm going to have my Peche Mortel later tonight.
That's one of those beers I see all the time, know I would like it, and forget to pick it up.
What's the bottle date on it?
I have 5 and 8 notched. Not exactly sure if that means 5/8/13 or May 2008.
Peche Mortel is an awesome beer. I like the Imperial Coffee Stout style, and this is an excellent example of the style.
Big fan of imperial coffee stouts. Never seen Peche Mortel. I will have to keep an eye out.
I honestly didn't know that Canadians made this good of beer (Sorry OCanada).
Ratings for Péché Mortel (Imperial Stout Au Cafe); American Double / Imperial Stout style beer brewed by Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel in Montréal, QC, Canada. 98 out of 100 with 2432 BeerAdvocate opinions.
The quantity isn't anywhere near you guys, but if you know what to go with we do some pretty awesome stuff actually.
