    Beerthirty on the clock!

    Might be helpful to keep a running log of what's available. To my knowledge, 9 and 14 are gone.

    Well, I know which 2 boxes I'll be choosing from so after Beerthirty picks, I'll be fast :)
  5. I'll go #7, not sure how that box ended up so far down the list...must be a lot of Midwest folks with those beers?

    Anyways, it would be cool next time to have the ranking order be set by the order the boxes are picked...for example, go through the ranking process and let the best ranjed box pick first, but after that let the last box selected have the next choice...just my 2 cents...

    I'm surprised as well that #7 ranked as low as it did. My guess is that some just didn't dig sours? Anyway, before Beerthirty picked it was between #1 and #7 for me so I'm going to go #1. Several wants in that one that will be my first crack at them.

    Box 1 Selected 4th

    I'm torn...Was hoping Sambo's would stick around (damn you Mista!).

    I'm deciding between 4 and 8. 4 is local (Mista) and has a few similar beers to me, but also has a few I would LOVE to try... On the other hand 8 (Bulbman) definitely has some stuff I would like to try too...I'm torn. I'm leaning towards 4...Anyone want to sway my thought process?

    bauermj Savant (475) Illinois May 4, 2009

    Nice, it looks like I'll be sending another 12 bottle shipper your way Anthony. Thanks again for the Lost Abbey help a few months back, glad I'm able to send some Midwest sours to the west coast.
  12. Mista

    Mista Aficionado (205) Minnesota Nov 10, 2011

    take four so I can drive it over and drop it on your front steps!!!!
  13. chrisp450

    chrisp450 Savant (290) Minnesota Oct 23, 2012

    F it...I'm taking Box 4. Mista, feel free to ship or drop it off here! I'm over in Eagan (you got it easy/cheap sir!).

    Be bold, step outside your region :)

    agreed on the sambo box front. I wish I could have gotten up on that
  15. Mista

    I wish I got your box!
  16. chrisp450

    chrisp450 Savant (290) Minnesota Oct 23, 2012

    I wanted to, but he just had a few that I really wanted...Really was hoping Sambo would slip though!
  17. chrisp450

    chrisp450 Savant (290) Minnesota Oct 23, 2012

    With that said though, excited for round two (with a few minor changes). Might need to build up my cellar though!
  18. chrisp450

    chrisp450 Savant (290) Minnesota Oct 23, 2012

    Just an FYI for whoever picks me too...I will be out of town from Sunday-Sunday next week, so shoot me a BM with your address and shipping preference. If it happens soon enough, I can ship this week still, or I can wait until Tuesday the 19th, your choice. Also, let me know if you want to swap anything for the Shaggy or another Black Note!

    And...I would love to expand, but really hoping to keep this to a 12-bottle shipper. So you get that as a bonus :)
  19. fortsambo

    fortsambo Savant (250) Colorado Feb 14, 2011

    There will definitely be some changes for round 2. This was a pretty good test run overall though!
  20. chrisp450

    chrisp450 Savant (290) Minnesota Oct 23, 2012

    Yeah, some would be good. Overall, was pretty fun, and a nice test! Definitely has big potential. I think multiple stages would be cool..

    For example:
    ROUND 1: Everyone submits up to XXoz of beer (ideally KILLER stuff). Everyone votes on the initial round.
    ROUND 2 and/or 3: Everyone Stands still, or adds more stuff to get the rankings adjusted.
    Finally: Add up all points, and pick winners after this.

    I think a multi-stage approach would be VERY cool, and would help even out the boxes. Though it would take far more work and commitment from the members of the BIF.
  21. chrisp450

    chrisp450 Savant (290) Minnesota Oct 23, 2012

    Either Bauer is in the tank deciding, or he just didn't want to decide after I did! Pick me, pick me!
  22. bauermj

    bauermj Savant (475) Illinois May 4, 2009

    Hey, sorry for the delay. I was trying to convince myself to take a box other than 6 because I already have 7 or 8 of the beers here with me. But that is mostly the case because I like drinking all of those. I almost went #8 or #12 (which I think should have been rated a bit higher overall), some nice bottles in those. So I take 6--would love to sub in a shaggy for the Rasp Tart if that works, just too many tasty bottles to pass up.

  24. BulbMan

    BulbMan Aficionado (125) Georgia Aug 15, 2010

    Been mulling this over for a while now this evening, back and forth, back and forth as the boxes were scratched off the list...

    In the end, while not very exciting, I think the BulbMan's gonna stick with his own box. I'm taking #8.

    Had a lot of fun with this one, gents!
  25. chrisp450

    chrisp450 Savant (290) Minnesota Oct 23, 2012

    Will do. Pulling the raspberry, adding the shaggy.

    Shoot me a BM with your address, and shipping preference ( can ship Thursday/Friday this week, or can wait until Tuesday the 19th...you call it!).
