    Anybody see that Founders CBS (evil twin to KBS) is going to be bottled for the first time since 2011?

    Heading to the veil and the answer breweries in Richmond VA this weekend!  It's insane how that area has several breweries with extremely high rated IPAs.

    I think some folks here have traded booze.  How do you go about shipping it?

    Wrap it up real well with bubble wrap. Pack it tightly so it won't shift around. And don't tell the carrier you are shipping beer.

    I got some cans from someone once and they just wrapped them in a jersey. One of the cans opened enroute.

    Bold above is most important for shipping anything. Major retailers can't even get that correct.

    This is a restaurant called Hardware in the western suburbs of Chicago. This flight we stuck with all IPAs, but I'm eager to try the stouts and porters next time. They have an on-site brewery, over 400 whiskeys and they grow all produce on site as well as cure their own meat. It's a real cool place with a unique concept. The Manhattan I started with was the best damn one I've ever had. I'd recommend trying for anyone in Chicago or the burbs.

    Looked that up and that place looks great!  Don't get out to Aurora area very often, but I'll definitely check that out if I'm ever out that way.

    I'd highly recommend it bud. It's pretty far west but you won't be disappointed if you ever have a reason to go out that way.

    Currently working my way through a Fuller's and Friends 6 pack. All the beers so far have been great. Vibrant and bursting with flavour any one in the UK should try and pick one up from waitrose.

    Pumped to check out the new Yards brewery this weekend. Probably the most consistent, solid beers to come out of PA.
