Yeah, I hope it turns up intact. Doesn't look good, unfortunately.

Fingers crossed



What's just a little bit creepy is that I got a call from UPS at my home number last night regarding this shipment.

The lady on the phone was VERY hard to understand and I'll I got from the call was the shipment is lost and they are investigating.

Still hopeful.

Yup, when they told me that they had called you to verify you had not received it I thought "if you can find him, why can't you find the damn box?" I really don't understand how a box gets lost at the terminal after an arrival scan. Someone would have to walk out the door with it without scanning it first. Crazy!

The hard part is it had 8 bombers. APA, Session IPA, Challenge beer, Munich Helles, German Helles Exportbier, Saison Brett, NHC stout, and a GABF gold medal German Pils... and as it stands I only have two bombers ready to go right now, so if they cant find it poor Joe is going to be waiting till dang near July...

Damn.  That's a loss.

And it sounds like I'm not nearly as hard to locate as I would like.

That's the freaky part.

Oh well, we'll see what happens, huh? They told me it may take 8 days...

That means they're drinking one bomber per day.

Probably LOL!

Tonight I'm crashing an IPA and my NHC rebrew. This weekend I'm brewing Helles and Dunkles. I have one bomber of Challenge left. So they either find the box or you get a new box sometime late May early June. The weather will be better for drinking beer then anyway, right?

Beer is good regardless of the weather.  We'll see what happens.  I won't run out in the meantime, though I have no idea when I will brew next.

You guys should run over to the how to ship homebrew thread, and add that shipping with LoJack highly recommended ...makes tracing where it's at much easier!

If that box doesn't show up...we should all send Joe at least 1 bomber...they won't be Klicks brews...but a consolation prize of sorts...
