Alaskan Amber Ale
My all time favorite beer is Alaskan Amber Ale, which I quaff as much as possible when I am in Seattle. I have tried to purchase it on-line and in the stores here, but either it wasn’t available or the shipping costs were too outrageous. I even tried working through my local wine/beer store, but the store’s distributor said AAA was not shipped east of the Mississppi (which broke my heart).
I’m now happy to report that I have 4 bottles cooling o’so nicely in the fridge. So how did I come by these 4 glorious bottles?
One of my co-workers, who has a fondness for sampling different beers (much as I do).
A week or so ago he received an email inquiry about one of our divisions shipping some tequila from point A to point B. We were joking about it and I told him if they do see if they will ship me some AAA. We laughed, but he thought about it some more and replied to the email asking about the possibility. They directed him to a web site, Liquid Solutions.
He ordered. They shipped.
He plopped the box down on my desk this past week. I was completely surprised and as you might imagine, quite pleased.
