    That would be Big John, an imperial stout from Goose Island.

    I had a tough, but good, time putting this one together. As long as he enjoys the brews then mission accomplished.

    Headed to drop my package now.

    Hint: If I were to ride my bike to my targets house, a popular mapping program says it would take me 80 hours.

    My box has been dropped off and is heading more than 2,000 miles. It is ending up in the same state that my childhood hero, and favorite Giant, was traded to in 1996.

    My box includes 114 ounces of sour beer that all have a world-class rating, and I would be thrilled if it were to show up on my doorstep.
     
  15. merc7186

    merc7186 Savant (345) New York Dec 5, 2010

    ...so you want the box to get trashed and sent back to you??? Seems like a waste of good beer.

    Well you can rule me out.

    I should be expecting a check from FedEx any day now...for the amount of business this BIF has generated, a sponsorship is not out of the question. A string of porches of will be bombed starting tomorrow....you've been warned.

    hoping to remember to grab my shipper from work to take home so I can pack up...
    will be shipping out on monday/deadline day to a target that has #s in their username
     
  21. Jose2412

    Jose2412 Aficionado (240) Michigan Feb 25, 2012

    Well according to my calculations, looks like it's either me or one other BA in this BIF, I'll let him figure out who he is. EDIT: Or her.

    merc7186 Savant (345) New York Dec 5, 2010

    Did you just call me a chick?

    ncaudle Advocate (610) Virginia May 28, 2010

    well, that leaves my potential senders down to only 1, unless my target is also my sender...
     
  26. Jose2412

    Jose2412 Aficionado (240) Michigan Feb 25, 2012

    I have no idea who is sending to me at this point.

    My favorite WR now plays for a team in my targets home state. He used to play for the home state of the artist who drew my avatar, and the team where I grew up.
