6/7 - Challenge: Glass

Home

Funny story behind this bottle being in my possession. I was part of a beer "exchange" program with
a fine fellow in London named Chaz who worked for one of our distributors there. Turns out he and I
were/are both something of beer aficionados. There is a lot of beer in our respective countries that
does not get exported to the other chap's country so we started trading beer in the boxes we shipped
units back and forth in. When he would get a bad unit in for replacement over there he package it up
with a couple of pints of something he knew I could not get over here and ship it over. I would
package up the replacement with a six pack from some microbrewery over here and ship it back.

This bottle is from the very first trade we did. He sent me 2 pints of Old Speckled Hen and I sent
him a six pack of Blackened Voodoo. We were both very popular in respective offices for a bit.
