Got an e-mail today from Dudley, who lives in the Midwest and was looking for a mail-order place that stocks Old Peculier, the dark, funky, wonderful English ale.
I told him about Liquid Solutions, which is based near Portland, OR. Then I dug out an e-mail from a friend who lives in Washington and frequently orders via e-mail. He lists several Web sites that either specialize in mail-order beer or stock a large beer list and ship by mail. Thanks again Alan.
About the cost of shipping, Alan noes:
Shipping is still steep, but some few beers are worth it.
It’s best to get a case or more, then the price isn’t too
bad per bottle. I’ve bought a few “antique beer bottles
(unopened)” via ebay. One of those links has Goose Island
Bourbon County Stout. I’m tempted to grab more of that.
I’ve had a few sips now and then and wonder if it’s as
good as I remember. Plus I’d like to compare it to my own
bourbon baggie imperial porter.
I also bought some bottles of Utopias for $125-170. At
that price the $20-25 shipping doesn’t seem so bad. I buy
it, or a friend, then we all gather and split the price
depending on how many samplers we get out of it.
