Team Upstate NY Gang Bang BIF Round 5 #UpstateBang


This weekend came the day we were all waiting so anxiously for: The Team Upstate NY Gang Bang. (For a little more background on the Gang Bang Beer-It-Forward, check out the packing party post here.) Team SoCal sent to us, which meant a shit ton of great Alesmith, Firestone Walker, and The Bruery verts and horizontals were in store for us that day, along with a ton of other awesome beer and shirt and glass swag too.
