    If my target likes this post I'll assume they'd like a couple cans of fresh Heady Topper in their box...

    Okay, been absent from the hints for awhile.

    First, the tease...
    Styles being sent out so far:
    3 BA barleywines (one isn't quite a barleywine, but close enough)
    1 barleywine
    2 BA stouts
    1 BA scotch ale
    1 wild ale
    1 farmhouse ale

    Hint #1: Heading west
    Hint #2: Have a friend getting a PhD in physics in this state at a top twenty program

    Gonna try to mail this one out before I have to peace out for a couple of weeks but no promises. So, my target will either get their box by the end of this coming week or not until the third week of May. To my shipper though, my lady-friend will be around in my absence, so you can feel free to ship whenever.

    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.
    Hint #3: My target has a person or animal in their avatar.
    Hint #4: My target has been a BA longer than me.

    Time for another hint, did an IP trade today for the last missing ba bwine, and the beer from la was shipped to its sister store here which I picked up today to. All the pieces are together. Was planin on shipping Monday but I've got an interview right after lunch I can't be late for, so out it goes on Tuesday!

    My target has an actual avatar. That cuts out at least 5 or so lol. Some of you guys need to put up an identity! I'm am full of vengeance and am worried my wife's head is in a box, so my avatar suites me perfectly...

    I may be shipping tomorrow depending on timing of the last trade I'm waiting on so here's the box teaser/big hint. Styles and state of the brewery are listed, at least one has multiples coming, and the final box could change slightly...

    Pennsylvania - BA Barleywine
    Pennsylvania - BA Barleywine
    New Hampshire - Barleywine
    Vermont - Double IPA
    Maine - IPA
    New York - Imperial Stout
    Michigan - Old Ale

    Hint #5: More than half of these are wants for my target.

    UPDATE: It will be coming in a non-BIG SKY growler (however, there is Big Sky Power Wagon inside)

    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
    Hint #6: Shipping north of 35 degrees latitude
    Hint #7: Hint #5 relates to basketball

    Since we have all grown so close in this past week I figured I would ask you guys. Have you ever had a beer explode on you? I just had a 2014 Bells Black Note explode on me. My girlfriend found it and said beer was everywhere including the ceiling. Just curious how common this is.

    Not something retail. I've had some trouble with home brew stuff and I nearly lost an eye to the cork from the bottle of AK Alive I opened the other night, but nothing sealed exploding.

    I've had a commercial bottle or two explode in the past as well. It has usually been due to overcarbonation (as the result of infection or unexpected extra action in bottle conditioning) or a defect in the glass bottle (I'm particularly sensitive to this as a glass blower and am often surprised by bottles that get out in distribution with big air bubbles or other visible weak spots in the glass). Sorry for the Black Note loss though...RIP.

    Damn you water heater!!! All the box of beer I had in my garage were soaked today! Just finished installing a new one and cleaning up. Quick update on the box which was water free luckily.

    Unfortunately my target will not get any IPAs, stouts, or sours... SORRY!

    Need to make room for the 158oz of bwine heading ur way, might actually increase as this recently delay with the water heater and interview tomorrow will give me a chance to gander a bit more on some regular notable bwines.

    Hints on beers: all are in my distro, only 4 are are brewed in CA

    I've narrowed my sender to Vinithing, Henshaub, TheDrizzle or Kramerbarthomer. I'm leaning toward one over the other, though.

    Hint #5: The state my target lives in shares a border with international territory.
