Last week, USA Beer Trends and I decided to have a beer swap. They’re based in Texas and I’m in New York, so there’s plenty of brews that we could share with one another; ones we simply can’t get close to our respective homes.
As you probably read in the post title (unless you’re not into that kind of thing) I was indeed a beer-swap-virgin, until this week, when I lovingly chose and packed up 3 huge bottles of delicious brews that I thought the boys would love. They are Nøgne Ø Winter Ale (an English Porter), Southern Tier Cuvée 1 (ale aged in French oak barrels, instead of American ones like the Cuvée 2) and Southern Tier Iniquity, an Imperial India Black Ale. I can hardly wait to see how USA Beer Trends dig ’em!
Gerg documented my excitement when my package arrived 🙂
Being careful not to cut myself, at least too deeply.
I really do move this quickly. Nauseating, I know.
Check out the RAD Mad House sticker!
LOVE the T shirt – great design, Larry!
Plus 4 brews to try – can’t wait!
Holy cow. I’m so looking forward to tasting and reviewing these beers. I cannot thank Larry at USA Beer Trends enough!
