    I haven't eliminated you as a sender in the Locals BIF, and for a second didn't realize which thread I was in and thought "wow, that was FAST! I wonder if it's me?"

    Awesome, I'll look forward to it! Would you recommend laying it a while or drink it fresh?


    ps- I neglected to point out that there were TWO Anti-Hero IPAs.

    Drink it whenever, it's tasting awesome now. That's the second time they've bottled straight jacket and this batch is above and beyond better than the first.

    My target should have something on their porch on Tuesday.

    Last hint, my target sent something to his target that is on his own want list. There is one in the box headed his way.

    Enjoy my friend, and don't worry.

    Alright, the final selections have been made:

    4 22oz
    8 12 oz
    1 25oz

    2 of the beers are likely in your distro, but are 2012s and BWs. Figured that wouldn't be a problem.
    1 is a 22oz 240 bottle count local.

    If you don't have access to Hangar 24 a box may be on it's way to you. Not sure if their was a swag component, but there is my new favorite extra swag included, but it's small. Look closely.

    I highly recommend a photosharing site. I use photobucket. It's easy and free(and has tablet/smartphone apps).
