    Stolen almost directly from biglobo8971's Darkness Day blind bottle BIF

    Rules are simple:
    Wrap 1 bottle of limited release / great beer
    Find me at Churchill's Renaissance (I'll be there pretty early)
    You give me your bottle
    I give you the bottle that was given before you.

    The object is the secrecy of what you're getting. Make sure you wrap your bottle, brown paper bag is perfect. Walk up to me and give me your bottle, I will then give you the bottle that was given to me previously. I end up with whatever is left when I leave (probably 1:30 - 2:00)

    If interested, answer the thread and find me at Churchill's Renaissance

    Cheers

    Dude, that picture is waaay too intimidating. I'd be afraid of handing you a bottle and then you telling me to F Off!, no bottle for you! You're gonna come home with the motherload!:)

    Haha, jk buddy. This sounds like fun. I'm not a big fan of BIFs since I usually get jammed with shelf turds, but I'll support my buddy SNB in this one. Dont think I'll have trouble finding you ;)

    Cheers

    Are you proposing 12 oz, 22 oz or 750ml?

    Also, you are false advertising with your avatar.

    I approve this BIF completely, the Darkness Day one was fantastic and a great way to meet new BA's. Very well done SNB, you boys and gals have a great time.

    Thanks again Scott for putting this together.
    I was very stoked to peel the brown paper back to reveal a Crooked Stave WWB Indigo.

    I had a feeling you would get mine for some odd reason.

    Not gonna lie. Was kinda disappointed by mine as I got one I've had before and didn't particularly like. It was like opening socks on Christmas.
