Still picking up some last minute items for my target. Will be shipping right close to the deadline.
as am I. as am I.
It's possible that the pecan bars have disintegrated at this point. I have mostly shipped brownies, which are quite a bit sturdier, and I didn't really think that through until after I had shipped. If so, I think they would make great ice cream topping. Or something? (Please let me know? )
I lagged a little bit harder than I expected but here goes:
Brau Brothers Rye Wyne Ale
Town Hall Barrel Monkey
CW Peruvian Morning
New Glarus Enigma
DuClaw Oak Aged Black Jack Stout
Steel Toe Brewing Before The Dawn
Hoppin' Frog Barrel Aged B.O.R.I.S.
Epic Big Bad Baptist
Founders Breakfast Stout
Surly Coffee Bender
(I feel like I'm forgetting one more, but I can't remember )
Thanks again to Penguin3200 for killing it! Most of these are new to me, except the Cascade Kriek and Big Bad Baptist, which I both LOVE! So pumped to dig into these! Cheers!
Reported. Starting a bad trader thread now/10
I am going to finish packing a couple things in my box, and it will be headed east today (or tomorrow at the latest). Hopefully those 2 growlers held you off until the next one lands.
I have a feeling this is going to SoCal but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. UPS came today with no beer.
getting another bottle or two, grabbing swag and planning on shipping most likely Thursday.
DOOR (wft?) who signed for my box was nice enough to put it in my way so that I could trip over it this morning walking into my office, nicely played...
18 pound box from huadog will be heading home with me in 2 hours with pics of the haul to follow!!!!
It's probably a bit more than 18... I like to be conservative in order to save $
Do you still get away with that? I've noticed that even though the tracking info has my fudged number inputed throughout the duration of the delivery, they actually charge me the true weight of the box taken at their distribution center on my credit card.
Just got around to pulling out all the beer I plan on sending (minus the two wants that will be in my possession next week). Looks like the grand total will be exactly 200oz of barrel aged beer, plus another 82oz of non barrel aged extra goodness.
Just had a knock at the door and saw the ups truck drive away. I was excited for a minute. Turned out to be a birthday present from my brother. The shave kit was cool, but a big box of beer would have been cool too.
I wrote down the pending amounts just now - I'll see what they post for - I never really pay attention. I don't have a scale so I'll always guess low.
Thank you, huadog, for the great haul: 141.5 oz of BA goodness + 68 ounces of non-BA goodness = 209.5 ounces!
for the BA goodness...
350mL x1 Drie Fonteinen Oude Geuze.................never had, wanted to try
750mL x1 Cascade Sang Noir (2011)...................new to me, can't wait
750mL x1 Bruery Rueuze....................................always welcome to Bruery brew
22oz x1 FW Parabola (2012)............................happy to add to the vertical
22oz x1 FW Double DBA (2012).......................always wanted to try
22oz x1 Epic Big Bad Baptist #5 (Feb '12)........I feel lucky
12oz x1 Founders Backwoods Bastard (2012)...couldn't find this on my MI trip last weekend
and for the non-BA goodness...
22oz x1 Kern River Just Outstanding IPA..........drinking now, delicious
22oz x1 Alpine Nelson.....................................drinking next, always delicious
12oz x1 Bell's Expedition Stout (2012)..............boo yah!
12oz x1 Maui CoCoNut Porter...........................great for apres-ski
and finally a sweet little snifter, courtesy of Brew Caddy!
How have I figured out your sender but you haven't?
(They had a kind of awesome hint that was a great "oooh" moment for me at some point--so thanks for that, huadog's sender.)
Arggghhhh!!!! Now I have to go through 18 pages of hints ad hauls?!?!

calm down i type slow with a beer in hand.
So now that I have been overwhelmed with the box I received I figured I'd drop another hint. Some of the beers coming your way come in boxes, they're slid in the box too outside of the foam shipper. OH that doesn't help you narrow it down until the box gets there... Well it's scheduled to land this Friday.
I love the NonBa stuff just as much! Gonna get me a crap load of Maui in a few months! Nice box Huadog!
Glad to hear that everything arrived safely! Enjoy the brews!
dropped off my box after work today. 200+ ozs (almost all barrel aged) heading northwest to a BA who appears pretty close to his state's capitol as well as another BA who I've traded with numerous times (actually I'm surprised he's not also in this BIF).
i believe he was also hoping to have his box before thanksgiving, but i hope the wait will be worth it. cheers!
Not sure if it matters to my sender or not but I'll be out of town this weekend. I'll be back on Sunday though so if my box is scheduled to arrive before Saturday or sometime next week disregard
If the non-participant you speak of is who I think it is, he expressed disappointment that he missed out...
Box is going out today & heading west!
anyone have an email address for yaknowbrady?
To my target, if you get a box from Jason Hoffman, that's me. I forgot to put a note inside.
On that note, to my target - if you get a box from Mark Intihar, that's me. I figure you're smart enough to figure that out
But in all seriousness, I just picked up a final tree-topper of sorts for my box of barrel aged ornaments. Box will be going out tonight or tomorrow, depending on how late I have to work to make up for my long lunch.
264.4 oz. of creamy -bals are being unleashed on east coast tomorrow. 8 wants, 12 beers, 35 lbs. should be there Saturday or Monday.
i live on the east coast.....
I wanted to send out today but my CO2 tank was empty so I couldn't bottle my lambic as an extra. My box should go out tomorrow (maybe Sat.)
By the way, to whomever is sending to me, I'm going to be at Eclipse next Thursday (the 6th), so if you send to me it'd be helpful if you try to get it here either earlier or later than that. Thanks!
If you live in "the first town in the first state" your porch will be hit with a 27lb box of BA goodness today!
Got an amazing box yesterday to go with the growlers I already received!
Thanks John! Very happy with all these beers!
