    Here we go! All targets are out. here are the rules again:

    1 BA barlwine
    1 regular barleywine
    60oz of anything else, but if youve got more ba or regular bwines, old ales or wheatwines fantastic!
    would also be cool to keep the box over 89% (or 4.0), good goal to hit but not a rule.

    most importantly have fun!

    shipping window is MAY, any time in may. id like to make the deadline 3rd week of May so that all boxes are received before june. shoot me a BM if this is an issue

    Any chance we could get a full list of participants to make the guessing game easier?

    It's almost easier to find BA barleywines than non-BA ones!

    First hint, shipping west. I have a huge box started. Hitting at least one bw want. Adding some other too notch bw, and topping it off with more wants.

    This should be fun.

    Hint #1 Shipping West
    Hint #2 So far, two BA barleywines, one beer that is for all intents and purposes a BA barleywine, and one reg. barleywine
    Hint #3 My box is going to change it up a bit for the extra oz's. Lots of barrels and trending locals...

    PS. None of the BA barleywines were aged in bourbon barrels...

    This is almost too easy ... already have 3 of the top 5 english BWs and 4 of the top 10 set aside for this BIF. None of which are distributed in my targets home state.

    Hint #2: My target will receive bourbon aged and brandy aged barleywine. The bournon should be easy to guess, the brandy is basically not possible to guess.

    Hint #1: Shipping West
    Hint #2: My target will be getting a couple barley wines from breweries in the original 13 colonies. At least one of which is a want. The BA barley wine is not from an original colony, but it's also a want.
