Beer It Forward Update 1/28

12 Packages down, 1 to go! This is second to last package in this everlasting Beer It Forward. Eric in Michigan sent this awesome box o'beer to Win in Raleigh. The only beer in this batch I've had the pleasure of trying is the Kuhnhenn 4D Old Ale (which was fantastic). 

This is our TWELFTH target hit so now I am the last person to receive a box. I can't wait to see what Win has up his sleeve, as he has a wealth of excellent North Carolina beer to choose from.

Beer It Forward Update 1/10

It's the final stretch of the Beertography Beer It Forward! This post was delayed a bit because of the Anchor Beertography Challenge, but better late than never! Way back on December 13th, Eric in Michigan received this excellent package from Brian in Virginia.

This is our ELEVENTH target hit so that means only two are left (including myself). In fact, I'm so far behind that the twelfth box has actually ALREADY landed. I'm just now waiting to receive the pictures from the most recent recipient. We're almost there!

Beer It Forward Update 11/27

The Beer It Forward barrels on! This time out, Brian in Virginia received this awesome package from James in Maine. This is two boxes in a row that I'm extremely jealous of. Here's Brian's reaction to getting the box:

Imagine my surprise when I saw that I had a box waiting for me when I got home from work yesterday. It was the day after my birthday and I'm getting old so I dont usually get gifts from people, but I thought "I better check this out to see what it is". It was from a name I didn't recognize, from a state that I don't know anyone in... so I asked my wife "Honey, do we know anyone in Maine?". As, I thought, she couldn't recall anyone in Maine we knew.

I decided to open the box anyway, we both do a fair amount of online shopping and it is not unusual for boxes to show up that we forget about. 

But what to my wondering eyes and cutting hands does appear but dozens of bottles wrapped in bubble wrap with a note about the beer. And good beer at that! Not a single beer I have ever tried (and that is quite a feat). 

Now, it is my turn to start getting beers ready to send to the next guy on the list. Thanks to James in Maine.

Nice work James! This is our TENTH target hit so that means only three are left (including myself)! Brian now has to pick his target and send out his package by 12/4.
