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:
- Great Lakes Blackout Stout
- Goose Island Matilda
- Bell’s Expedition Stout
- Founder’s Imperial Stout
- Bell’s Special Double Cream Stout
- 3 Guys Off the Scale Barleywine
We can’t get any of these beers down here in Georgia. And no less impressive, from Scott:
- Dark Horse Brewing Company One Oatmeal Stout
- Founders Backwoods Bastard
- Dark Horse Brewing Company Crooked Tree IPA
- Founders Breakfast Stout
- Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA
- 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.
