    There's lots of good beer in there! Don't let those fedex employees find that out, party time for them at fedex after hours! RUN!

    Really great problem too have. My suggestion, ship in two boxes. Using FedEx online, 2 boxes on one shipment ticket to the same address costs as much as one large one.

    To my target, you can plan on at least two boxes. Too much for a single box...porch bomb coming soon.

    I predict it will be safe, but if not, they will taste my vengeance. You don't f around with my barleywine.

    To my target, you will get none of these in your box. All great beer, but I got something else planned for you!!

    Those are some great beers ... I wonder if Immutable_dusk is sending any to his target? The only one I recognize is Riserva, which I've had and is in my distro (made like 50 miles from me, actually)... outside that I don't even know what any of those are!

    I look at Xantus pretty regular. Is it worth picking up?

    Yes. If you have not had it and can find some, I suggest giving it a try.

    Yeah, it's a great brew. Sits on the shelf here. But that's okay. It's there when I want it.

    Haha, yeah I'm definitely being stingy with this trades plunder. My target won't be disappointed with their box though.

    No danger of the FedEx guys drinking the barleywine, when I left the condo today to go pick it up, it was actually at the bottom of the steps. Can't wait to get back home, break it open, and see what @Vinithing sent me.

    If you still haven't made a guess in my BCBBW mini-BIF, today is the deadline I'm arbitrarily setting.

    Needless to say, I am blown away. I just had time to unpack and take the picture before running back out the door, but believe me, I can't wait to get back to these beers and just bask in their awesomeness. Wicked excited about all of them. Thanks so much @Vinithing.

    Side question: Drink that growler of Uni-gard washer fluid fresh, or let it age a little?

    My last hint ... you'll have to scan back to see my others.

    My target's state is home to significantly more large wild 4 legged mammals than humans.

    With a name like that, it's just asking to be drank, isn't it? Glad to hear you haven't tried the Uinta yet! Enjoy the beers and be looking for a second small box around the 23rd.

    Box is all packed -- sending to a state on the West Coast with a lot of sun. Finally tally below:

    - Four different BA BWs.
    - Three different regular BWs.
    - One BA Scotch Ale.
    - One Old Ale.
    - One Imperial Stout.
    - One DIPA (which I won't even get to try!)

    My target hasn't participated much in this thread because he's had a rough week. Hopefully this box will raise his spirits!

    As a Washingtonian, I can say that's a dead giveaway. ;-)

    Though it actually is quite sunny in seattle today ...

    Hint #7. I plan to ship next weekend, so my target can expect his stuff the next week some time.

    A random hint. There is someone in this bif who I did a trade with a couple months ago and I did not handle the trade very well and promised to send some extra stuff. They probably think I forgot about him, but I did not. I will also be sending that person a nice box as well. Sorry for procrastinating for so long! That box will also go out next weekend!
