G'day,

It's been a while since I started a new thread.

Anway, to the guts of it...A friend from work is going home to Minnesota and has offered to bring something back for me. :D

Any suggestions, within reason, will be considered.

She will be taking her son and prob can't carry a lot. I don't wanna be a PITA, with extra goodies!

I was thinking of some Stone brews (Arrogant, Ruination, maybe Vertical Epic- if available). :beer:

Better/other suggestions?

Let's see:

- A tight fitting Hooters t-shirt
- A Fosters Oil Can (available at all good local servos)
- A cheeseburger from any of the local establishments
- The new Hanson CD
- Any fun numberplate from Venice Beach, California, saying 'IMFIT'

I'm tending towards the Hooters shirt.

BTW. No need to suggest "Fargo" on DVD.
Already have one.

FYI

ive got a cousin coming out to visit from california and im thinking the same thing. maybe three or four bottles of local beer.

if she is going to minnesota try to ask for something local or at least regional as it will probably be easier to find. but heck, if she can get stone, that would be sweet (or very, very bitter depending on what is available).

Anything Stone, Three Floyd, Alesmith, Victory or Dogfish Head is bound to go down well.

Minnesota may be pushing it for Stone Brewing Distribution, so I'd imagine it would be the same for Alesmith as well.
You'd be more likely to find Dogfish Head, so I'd be going for their 60, 90 and 120 minute IPA's.

There is also a list of recommended Beer Stores in Minnesota over at Beer Advocate that will give your workmate a good place to find you your brews.

Beers,
Doc

Weizguy,
Try for some Yeungling "Black and Tan". The Yeungling lager was ordinary
but I really enjoyed the "Black and Tan"

I think there is some good home brew stores in California - St Pats has opened up there but i think they only wholesale now.

But why not ask here to bring back a Cheap Grain Mill or a CCCFWC - COnvoluted Copper COunter Flow Wort Chiller...

I had a mate who went over and he bought these back for me...

Lock that one in, Eddie!

I've decided on SNPA, Anchor Steam and an Arrogant Bastard.

U C, she is going to California too. Yeehaa. :beer:

Don't want to push the friendship either, but will advise that I have capacity to appreciate any extra beer she can bring back. e.g. Stone, Alesmith, Dogfish Head, in fact anything with a bionic reputation.

She tells me that she is going over with Christmas gifts and will have plenty of space in the luggage.

Maybe I should get a Crankandstein mill sent to her brother's house...and a cuppla kegs (hahaha) :D

Seth out :p
