I recieved one in my box last week. 2nd one so far
Box currently on truck or delivery today.
Box is going out today. Final tally (estimated, since I haven't crammed it all in yet):
8 12oz bottles
122oz of barleywine
116oz of BA barleywine
+ wheat wine, BA stout, IPA, and DIPA.
Have they invented a box big enough for this shipment?
You caught me, it's actually two boxes.
It can be done; I got the 280 or so ounces I sent all in one 33 pound box ...
I once had a 37lb box with a little over 300 oz in it and it all fit, but it was a monster.
edit: This box was more than double the minimum but not quite that big
...and is scheduled to arrive Thursday!
The escalation here is kinda scary... I'm starting to feel bad for my target that I shipped so early.
Yeah I thought I had an awesome box coming together, and then I saw a couple of these hauls.... to my target: I'm sorry.
You guys are all killing it. The minimum was set but so far every single haul has gone beyond the parameters!
keep it up!
Also I have to say @Kurmaraja is a fucking beast!
I sent 1, so we are at 2 total
Oh, man - certainly didn't want to make anyone apologize. I just happened to have a bunch of barleywines that needed a good home. I got stupidly enthusiastic with my purchasing this winter so I thought I'd get stupidly enthusiastic clearing some space in my garage.
It's saison time now! Anyone wanna do a saison bif? ;-)
Halfway through the BIF, 11 hauls so far, 2 BCBBW. My 5 is looking pretty solid. LOL
Hah, that was a little mixed between sincere and fishing for a rebuttal. I didn't clear out a whole garage but I think I did ok, 4 or 5 BAs/Old Ales and a handful of IPAs (based on wants/hads, this is the preferred style of my target).
I hate how amazing an idea this is. Let's just wait until like the end of June, with a July shipping window and I'm totally in. To my hypothetical target: you will be getting a growler of Tired Hands.
Meanwhile my 16 (and everyone else's teens) looks a bit silly.
Multiple boxes landing today on my porch, came home to a mountain haha. Just like Christmas morning at eight years old. First off we have our Barley wine BIF and i'm pretty sure the devastation was caused by @grrrah. Jesus tap dancing christ, I love trading with people from candy-cornia, I mean California. Always generous as all hell.
Russian River goodness
Supplication (permanent want)
Redemption (never had but happy to try it)
Pliny the Elder (never can go wrong)
Almanac Heirloom Pumpkin Barleywine (was getting jealous some of our other recipients got it so pretty happy)
Russian River Glassware (probably didn't want me to drink anything in the inappropriate glassware)
Firestone Sucaba (permanent want)
Hanger 24 Brewery Barrel Roll No.4 (never even heard of but sounds good)
Humboldt Black Xantus (permanent want)
Fiftyfifty Healthy Spirits (never had)
HOTD (want, never had)
HOTD Doggie Claws (AWESOME, had one a few months back)
OUTSIDE of this beer it forward this also landed today
Also got a Surly Five but didn't take a picture. Hopefully these halls can hold some of you over today.
Also my target's box is inbound, BEWARE!!!
I can't see your pics! Is that just my computer or is everyone having that problem.... Sounds like a sweet haul
Oh the shame of an improperly loaded picture
Rock and Roll!!!
So I may have lied when I said I would ship last weekend, just dropped a 28lb box off at fedex a half hour ago. And I had to make some last minute changes to my box after seeing my target send some of my home state ba barleywines. Hopefully i dont dissapoint too much. My ba barleywines have either no rating or only one rating, so i guess they will by wild cards.
On another note, Kurmaraja, I need your address, please.
So I am at 166oz/5 Wants/3 BA BWs Large Format/1 Non-BA BW little brother of a BA.
Going to poke around the fridge a bit this weekend and see what else jumps in.
Shipping Monday to a city within 5 hours of where I grew up.
Wild cards are awesome! Nothing better than coming across the unknown gem in a trade.
This is fun to watch! There are a lot of generous BA's here.
Hopefully I can get in on the next one.
Sorry, didn't you hear? We're all about being exclusionary and keeping things to ourselves here on this site...
Then again.... if your avatar and your extras match up, maybe we'll let you in after all.
I figured you guys were like that. Rest assured, my avatar matches up and, as far as my extras, I can do my best.
We let anybody crash the party, assuming they bring beer.
To the organizer of the next one: I want this guy as my sender.
The timing on this one may have been a bit off, I deciede to run a BIF a month before my wedding, not the best idea. Luckily for the most part this guy is on auto pilot. Plan on opening Old Nuptial this weekend
If this one goes well maybe I'll run another one going into the winter months
everyone is invited, ofcourse
Congrats, Kevin!!!I wish you and your bride all the best!
I look forward to jumping in on the next one and handing in my BIF V-card.
Don't wait until "going into the winter months" to hand in that BIF V-card... we're all about BIF sluts around here. I was told "it can be hard to get into one because they close up quick" so I signed up for every one I saw in a three week span... I'm now in about 5 of them... if you watch this forum for "NBO" (New BIF Opportunity) it's not hard to find one.
Last hint: My target's box is scheduled to land tomorrow
My targets box is scheduled to land Friday
Woops. Wrong thread.
I sent more than one.
Final hint. Porch bomb landing tomorrow in the former home state of Shabazz, Kemba, Emeka and Richard. That should resolve that oddball hint I dropped a couple weeks ago (and props again to the BA who actually figured that hint out, you know who you are...)
To my target.. Your box will be dropped off at FedEx Monday night, I missed the deadline yesterday, and don't want to cook your beers in a warehouse over the holiday weekend. But I will add something to your box from my weekend travel to make up for it.
