    Glad you like it. But wasn't the Blueberry from Upland?
  2. Yup, indeed it is!! Ha, I just had the cascade blueberry the other night and must've had it on the mind when typing.

    I really like this!

    I'll throw a little more praise for NJBeerNerd. The reason I met Mike is because he went out of his way to help me out before we had ever met. I had asked about finding Ghandi Bot in CT and he messaged me that he wasn't sure about Ghandi, but was going to MA for work and could pick me up some stuff. I asked if he needed money up front and told me to not worry about it. He proceeded to haul me almost $100 of beer before we even met. Since then, he has been nothing but more than generous and I'm not surprised he went out of his way to help out. He's been a great friend to me and one of the better examples of what being a true BA is all about.

    in case you don't know by now, GuisseppeFranco is NO JOKE!
  10. Agreed.

    An update to our target: I checked on your box and it would appear that it should be landing early next week with a second swag box coming in a couple of days later. Hope your as happy with the box as we were in putting it together.

    Co-sign... seems every time we hangout we always touch on the subject of how awesome and generous Mike is.
  16. Really glad you like it. I tried to hit some wants, some should be wants and a many of my favorites.


    P.S. - The Black Raven Saison, there are two batches of this in bottles, this is batch 1, which in my opinion is much more developed and superior to the new batch that is out now.

    That's from me. Had to substitute the Lychee for something that absolutely refused to be released on time. Which might be a little Christmas surprise....

    I am sad this BIF is almost over, this was a great BIF for everyone involved. Somebody gonna start the next one in like a month? haha, if not, I will!
  28. I'd sit on that Cherry Void for a couple more months. It was still in the process of carbing itself up when it was released a month ago. Best offering I've had from Epic Ales to date.

    The Anchorage Love Buzz was one of my favorite offerings of 2012. Enjoy the beers Dave and thanks again for running this.
  29. My box has landed in Indiana, it appears a neighbor or a doorman or something has signed for the box. Let me know its arrived safe.
  30. My box finally went out today, really sorry my target had to wait this long. Hope he likes.

    So I need to throw another massive thank you out to the community.

    Joseph out of CA (not sure on a BA handle, please step up!) sent a 3 bottle shipper (with a nice message written on the box) to me yesterday that contained:

    750ml Drie Fonteinen Oude Gueuze 2012
    Bruery Oude Tart
    Cascade Blueberry

    Again I am absolutely humbled by the generosity of this community and Mike / Joseph your awesomeness will not go un-noticed (now I just need to think of a good idea for a "The Community is still alive and strong" LIF).

    Really appreciate the effort that DaveHack put into this BIF, and a massive thank you to NJBeerNerd (Mike) and Joesph for the great boxes. Two class act people for sure!

  34. Yeah, so I'm pretty much in this BIF until I die, may be the most awesome thing ever. Any additional round please include me, I have done all 3 rounds and I can't think of one that I've enjoyed more. The generosity of this particular round is simply staggering and I'm so happy to be involved.

    Special shout out to DaveHack for running this one the way it should be run.

    BIF's like this is why the BA community is so great, with everyone sending great boxes back and forth and being so generous. Just can't say enough positive about this and all of you.
    Happy holidays!

    Glad you enjoyed the box. I hope it stops the sting a little bit. Stay thirsty my friend.

    I too am looking forward to the next round.

  36. Gonzoillini

    Gonzoillini Advocate (680) Illinois Oct 15, 2008


    Again just wanted to personally thank you, another totally unexpected box that really knocked me out. I really hope I get JP7161 or NJBeerNerd as my target in Round 4 of Saison, Sour and Funk...

    Thanks again and Cheers!

    Kmccabe33 Savant (450) Georgia Nov 4, 2011

    Well I am more than willing to head the next round of this if everyone would be interested. Granted we need to get through the holidays, etc. Aim for a ship date in February maybe?

    I'm looking over my records, looks like everything is accounted for. If anyone is still missing a box, PLEASE let me know....This has been an overwhelming success (at least as far as I'm concerned :)) I'd be happy to be involved in another...I see there are some volunteers willing to take over. I'm not a fan of running things like this, but I wanted it to live on as it is my favoritist BIF. So, if there is someone that wants to take the reigns, feel free....if not, I'd run it again. Cheers to all and thanks for making a smooth and easy BIF. (As a side note, the few 'issues' we did have have been resolved through sheer generosity and a BA trying to make it right)

    So I get this box today and can't figure out for the life of me where it came from...then it hits me, libbey and LordKrystic! If I'm wrong, let me know....awesome box, I'm very excited! Thanks!! If it isn't from you, I have a secret admirer (I am pretty smoking hot!)...Merry Christmas!!!!!!!
  40. Dat would be us. Cheers Dave!

    Devils Kriek was one of my favorites from 2012. Sadly D.O.N.G. but the glass was sweet and seemed like a nice NW fit for the box.
