WINDFALL!

Posted

No matter what your mommy taught you, it pays to win. I was recently the victor in a beer fantasy football league, where I edged out Chipper Dave in the finals. Dave is a most gracious loser, which makes me think he’s used to it. The stakes were high: a locally brewed 6-pack. Dave delivered with 6-er of New Belgium 1554, a delicious black ale. Besides Dave, there were also other losers involved. Six of them, to be exact, and they’re starting to make good on their commitments.

Last weekend I met up with Scott in the Brick Store parking lot, who delivered beer for himself and Virgil. And the only appropriate response to seeing these 2 6-packs is “Whoomp there it is.” First, from Virgil:

fantasy-football-haul-1

  1. Great Lakes Blackout Stout
  2. Goose Island Matilda
  3. Bell’s Expedition Stout
  4. Founder’s Imperial Stout
  5. Bell’s Special Double Cream Stout
  6. 3 Guys Off the Scale Barleywine

We can’t get any of these beers down here in Georgia. And no less impressive, from Scott:

fantasy-football-haul-2

  1. Dark Horse Brewing Company One Oatmeal Stout
  2. Founders Backwoods Bastard
  3. Dark Horse Brewing Company Crooked Tree IPA
  4. Founders Breakfast Stout
  5. Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA
  6. Dogfish Head Palo Santo Marron

The only beers out of these that we can get are the Dogfish Head. But I’m not going to complain about getting free Dogfish Head. The biggest question I now face is whether or not I should share all of these fine winnings with Jeff and Joel.

  1. I’m really really good at coming in 2nd place. Have I mentioned that? Next year is mine or else I’ll mail you a warm 6-er of sun drenched Bud Lime in clear glass bottles.

  2. The Founders breakfast stout is amazing. Looks, tastes, and smells like a stout should.

  3. It looks like you beat a couple guys out of Michigan. As this looks like my beer shelves here in Detroit.

  5. Hey. This is Homebrew_Rob from the Aleuminati. I was one of the fantasy football losers and no I have not paid up. Is your address still the same? I live in Northern California…so any request? Take care.

  6. Wait a minute! Didn’t you guys read the fine print on the Aleuminati website? We (meaning me) retain a 33.3% interest in all prizes associated with this contest. I’ll expect my 1/3 full bottles of each of the afore-mentioned beers shipped to me with priority. ;)
