    Oi, fell off the wagon throwing hints out, derp. Me and conversions dont do so good, so best I can tell I'm sending over 200oz in a converted styro to someone in a state with no less than 6 professional teams spread between 5 major league sports.

    Further, this city was in contention to host the olympics, and is under consideration once again.

    With those hints as well as my previous, a diligent biffer could probably figure out if I'm sending to them. To add some motivation, the lowest scoring beer ranks at 90. There is one beer ranked at 100.

    Lowest rAvg is 4.02, highest is 4.54.

    Dearest target, if you figure out who you are, please consider calling your tasting group for an emergency meeting. Or bring your big boy panties and be ready to get your drink on.
  2. My targets box was dropped off by Fedex earlier today so hopefully everything arrived safe and sound

    Thanks a ton man, really interested in trying these out.

    Not to steal StoutSeth's thunder for putting together an awesome box, but as I'm putting together the finishing pieces of tape for the outgoing box a last little morsel to my target. The first big meme started off of a character from my target's home state.

    Thanks again for a great box StoutSeth
  4. Roommate said that a box was delivered today..... Coincidence? I hope not.

  7. Slight corrrection, 189 ozs in box rather than 199 as mentioned in a previos post, after some last minute changes. But anyway, box went out yesterday to start it's 800+ mile trip and is expected to land Thursday in a city next to a river.

    Mcooly Savant (275) New Jersey Feb 19, 2011

    My box has crossed the Mason-Dixon line and is spending a couple of hours in Maryland before continuing its journey south by southwest...
  9. I'm glad you're happy with everything, and because you seemed to have a generally similar style preference to me I had a lot of fun compiling some of my favorites. It looks like you're starting to stockpile some Noble Rot there with the one in the background you probably got in a trade haha
  10. 189 oz of great beers started their journey north this afternoon towards a suburb outside of the capital city to a state that also encompasses the "the city that never sleeps". Hopefully the package will make it to your doorstep Friday....................Godspeed (You Black Emperor).

    Got my bottles all cozy in their box and then realized....I forgot to pack the swag :oops: So, my target will be getting 2 boxes: one at around 25lbs, another just over 1lb :D

    I know I'm cutting it close, but my line-up underwent some minor changes (hint hint) just before packing. As of right now, labels are on the boxes and will be dropped off at Fedex bright and early tomorrow morn.
  12. Correction: Fedex says it will now be there Thursday. Someone with two men and a puppet in their avatar needs to be ready!

    Package being dropped off today for its trek to a sunny location near the 4 corners area.

    Hoping to get a box from whoever this week from whoever is sending to me. I have off until tuesday, so would be a perfect time to enjoy some beer.

    Sorry to all the people who have commented since my last post, you are not my target.

    If you happen to open a box on Friday and get frustrated that the jerkoff who went and won the BiF forgot to include a note with his BA handle on it, my apologies.
  16. Unfortunately that makes two of us......If you get a package tomorrow from Blake in Raleigh, thats me.
  17. chriltz

    chriltz Aficionado (175) Illinois Mar 21, 2010

    Well, one more to cross off my list of potential senders. The list keeps getting smaller and smaller.
  18. My box should be landing on Thursday with two of my targets "Wants"... One of the breweries is 195 miles north of me, and the other is 127 miles south.
  19. Envelopes

    Envelopes Initiate (0) Ohio Aug 26, 2012

    My target should be seeing his box tomorrow. Right now it's in a city called Kernersville.
  20. chriltz

    chriltz Aficionado (175) Illinois Mar 21, 2010

    My box containing 5 wants has started its 725 mile trek east along I-80/I-70 to a town about an hour away from out nation's capitol.
  21. Mcooly

    Mcooly Savant (275) New Jersey Feb 19, 2011

    My box is on schedule to be delivered tomorrow. It will be delivered to a state that hosted a pretty big event over the past month...
  22. Roger85

    Roger85 Savant (490) Illinois Aug 24, 2012

    So I think I've got it narrowed down to 2 people as my sender- and either way I think I'm getting at least a couple of wants tomorrow (as long as I'm right). And now I'm really excited for tomorrow to come.:D
  23. I'm off until Monday, so ready I am
  24. I think I may be getting a box tomorrow ;)
  25. Mcooly

    Mcooly Savant (275) New Jersey Feb 19, 2011


    My box is on a Fedex truck for delivery. Hopefully it wasnt banged around like the local roller derby team, the Twin City Knockers!
  26. Envelopes

    Envelopes Initiate (0) Ohio Aug 26, 2012

    Out for delivery! Someone better get off that snowy mountain and be on the lookout.
  27. Roger85

    Roger85 Savant (490) Illinois Aug 24, 2012

    Todays gonna be a good haul day!! Cant wait to see some boxes!
  28. chriltz

    chriltz Aficionado (175) Illinois Mar 21, 2010

    IF one of the boxes today is to me, it better not be too heavy. The oral surgeon instructed me to do no heavy lifting for a few days.

    I might need to enlist somebody to brign a box inside for me.

    wyatt13 Savant (475) Illinois Feb 13, 2011

    I'm close enough that I could probably help ... with an appropriate commission, of course ;)
  30. Zapy

    Zapy Aficionado (135) Indiana Feb 8, 2012

    So it looks like my target's box is on its way, and should be getting there hopefully by Saturday.
