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.
