The following post is a guest post written by Michael Mulligan. Please note that the opinions in the article are those of Michael’s and not necessarily mine (I don’t feel nearly as strongly about Pumpkin Head, for instance). But I always appreciate guest posts and, if the submitted post is half-way decent, I’m happy to post it. Thanks for the article, Mike!
Hello fellow BAB readers! I just got wind of the deal of the year, and, before I have even left the house to take advantage, I just had to site down and tell the lot of you about it. I just hope you don’t beat me to the store after I submit this!!
I’ve been a big fan of beer for what seems like decades now (approaching it anyway), just started brewing a little over a year ago, pride myself on never turning down a beer I haven’t tried, and like to think I have a pretty darn good pallet.
However, that said, it may just be personal preference when I say that Shipyard Pumpkinhead may very well be among the best beers in the world. Again, may be personal preference, maybe I just haven’t gotten around quite enough yet, but that’s the way I see it.
So when my fellow brew-bud called me up and uttered the words “24 bottles,” “Shipyard Pumpkinhead,” and “$11.99” all in the same sentence.
Go for it chaps! Bootleggers in Thopsham and Lisbon, Maine, is selling 24 bottle cases of Shipyard Pumpkinhead for only $11.99!! Comes to $13.79 with tax and deposit.
My friend Rachel bought FIVE cases, and said only 2 or 3 bottles tasted light-struck or otherwise tainted (that’s the risk you take with end-of-season specials).
Go Forth, Be Merry! And when you are over there, ask for Tony, and tell him Mike sent you.
Oh, and don’t forget to try one of my other favorite beers (my favorite of this season), Harpoon’s Winter Warmer. You won’t regret it!
