So we won a little beer blogger fantasy football league last year. No big deal [subtext: BIG DEAL]. As winners, we were promised a local 6-pack of microbrew. Most of the participants [subtext: LOSERS] paid their dues promptly. Some of them, including Eli “The Delinquent Beer Man” Shayotovich, did not. Eli blogs over at Confessions of a Beer Geek and is also half of Beer Tap TV.
So imagine my surprise when I received this in the mail last week:
Whoa, did Eli come through or WHAT?! It was almost worth the wait. Here’s what was in the box:
- Modus Hoperandi from Ska Brewing
- Steel Toe Milk Stout from Ska Brewing
- Pliny the Elder from Russian River
- Blind Pig from Russian River
Eli, we can now safely say that we look forward to playing with you [subtext: CRUSHING YOU] again next year. Thanks for the beer, we haven’t been able to try any of this stuff yet!
