    I'll go in if you need one more.

    The name and the BIF were originated by DIM and the name is actually "Nobody Wants to See a Beer Geek Naked". This would be the third installment and it was just a way to get a few folks interested in brewery shirts together and, to your point, most people wouldn't want to see these folks shirtless. In the past, the 'hauls' webpage featured some alarming background art.

    Cheers!
     
  4. Thanks Cashew70- I appreciate the clarification. I'm interested to see the pics too. I'll look for the full size Storm Troopers in the background.

    Guess posting in the interest thread didnt secure a spot? If you have room I would love to be included.

  14. it is very difficult some times when starting a BIF to accomodate all who are interested in joining. I usually put up a "gauging interest" thread first with specific instructions to "conversate", that way its easier to know who actually is interested in being a part.

    Thanks biglobo, you matched me up well that I can knock out a bunch of wants. Ironically this person has the one beer that I've traded more than any other as a want, yet I'm out and they don't have more at the brewery for the time being.

    Are you going to start a hints and hauls thread? I don't want to step on your toes. Based on who all is in this, I expect it to be an amazing BIF!
     
  19. I'm also psyched, my target has 2 wants I not only have at the moment, but am getting a fresh supply the weekend before I ship.
     
  20. LostTraveler

    LostTraveler Savant (375) Maine Oct 28, 2011

    I have my work cut out, from previous BIFs my target has seemed very generous in their boxes.
     
  21. Axic10

    Axic10 Savant (425) New Jersey Mar 15, 2008

    That rules me out, I send out shitty BIF boxes....:p
     
  22. Ungertaker

    Ungertaker Savant (460) Minnesota Apr 30, 2010

    I am in the same boat! My target has been a wants list sniper plenty times over!

    Ungertaker Savant (460) Minnesota Apr 30, 2010

    Yeah, he does- look at my "shitty" haul from the Secret Bunny BIF:

    Hunahpu T-Shirt
    Hunahpu glass
    Waddles Milk Chocolate Egg x2
    Zitner's Peanut Butter Egg (not smashed, by the way!)
    M&M filled figure
    Voodoo Brewery Big Black Voodoo Daddy

    Hunahpu's (HUGE Want)
    Maine Beer Company Peeper Ale
    Terrapin Beer Co. The Iron Tankard (want)

    Man, I feel for the guy who gets his box! :p

    *EDIT* Disclaimer (so whoever receives a box of duds doesn't feel too bad):

    I had Alex as a target in the Secret Santa BIF. He felt like he needed to get me back.

    Now I am going to look like an ass when I send out a bunch of old IPAs!

    Thanks Dan, now it's going to look really awkward when I send out a box full of duds!
     
  25. Ungertaker

    Ungertaker Savant (460) Minnesota Apr 30, 2010

    Yep, it will! :)
     
  26. I can hit a ton of wants, now I just have to find a shirt... may even be custom.

    I will have hints and the haul up soon. Getting married today and lots of to dos!
     
  29. Congratulations! I think you perhaps focus on the wedding- the hints & hauls can be placed on the back burner for now. I'll probably receive hate mail for saying that :)

    Nah I have just been giving him a hard time. Hopefully some my box will be ennoyed today. Congrats
     
  31. No hate mail just a hate "like". :)
