    Hint #1: shipping east!
    Hint #2: The BA barleywine i am sending IS listed on BA... it currently has a VERY high rating... and is definitely NOT available within 1,000 miles of your distro...
    Hint #3: The minimum oz. of this BIF seems to small to me...I will be sending at least double the minimum ozs.... Maybe triple....that'll make it more fun
    Hint #4: My target has updated his wants within the past week
    Hint #5: I would consider this a difficult hint... but I will toss it out there anyways... there will be more to come as I'm not sure if you will get this...here's the hint: RH EO KW SN

    I think somewhere between 6-8 is probably the right answer. I take 6.

    Should throw out some hints here:

    1. Shipping East
    2. My target is also shipping East
    3. My targets state borders 4 other states
    4. The largest city is not the capital

    If my target likes this I will add 5 IPAs / DIPAs from his wants to the box.

    Hint #1 Sending East
    Hint #2 - target has had two of the limited release barrel aged BW's I'm planning on sending. Target rated them highly and doesn't live in either distro so probably won't mind getting them again.
    Hint #3 - Target has several regionally available wants that I can fulfill besides barleywines.

    I used to work on F-111s as a mechanic and one of our common corrective actions was "Repaired short between the two auditory inputs of the upper stick actuator"... sorry if anyone here is a pilot...

    I am going to shoot over to Missoula this weekend for the BACON N BEER Breakfast @ Draghtworks Brewery.

    If my target likes this post, I will try and fill a mini-growler of Big Sky's Power Wagon Wheat Wine (if they are filling growlers of this ambrosia, of course)
