Mail call: beer

14 Oct

So I get LOTS of stuff in the mail at work. Lots of it is weird or sort of random or kind of funny. So I’m going to blog about it.

In my first three weeks at the paper I’ve received a bottle of Patron XO, about 25 cookbooks of varying levels of interest, lots of food magazines, two packages of sugar-free gummy bears, a gold envelope that contained a press release and a bag of microwave popcorn, and this, from this morning:

When the front desk person brought it over, they guessed that it wasn’t really beer inside. They were wrong.

 One bottle of Boulevard Pale Ale, bubble wrapped within an inch of its life. I should also say there was a press release in the box, which informed me that Boulevard Pale Ale won two gold medals at the 2011 Great American Beer Festival.

Trust me, I won’t be drinking this one at my desk.
