    Hint #?? I'm torturing my target by procrastinating... I have a few boxes going out from other bifs/trades so as soon as I can find some time to pack these all up, he'll get a porch bomb a few days later.

    Seeing as it seems you've figured me out, I'll get the box out tomorrow so you have something to drink over the trip.

    Okay folks, I've been MIA but am officially returned from out of town. The GF was a little remiss in getting to the Fedex store last week as you probably figured out. She waited until Wednesday, so I had her hold off, and I shipped the box out today so it wouldn't sit in a warehouse over the weekend. Unfortunately, I also had to swap out the farmhouse ale I had in the box for a wild ale. The brewery where the farmhouse ale came from just started bottling and I have heard that their caps have been coming loose in shipping. Didn't want to risk it, so I swapped in a tasty replacement from the west coast...hint: estimated delivery date is Wednesday.

    My target has a 30-pound box hitting his porch this Friday. If my target wants the tracking #, send me a BM.

    I wanted to include a bottle of Flying Mouflan in my box, but Troegs told me they weren't releasing it this year. It ages nicely, though.

    Sadly the chips and some hoppy cans were the wounded soldiers during this incident. But big props to UPS for getting the box there!

    I love BIFs!

    Yup! And now DC Brau probably won't be canning anymore for 6 weeks while they are installing new equipment ... I have something to make up for it though!

    Bummer about OTWOA, I enjoyed that one when I had a chance to try it.

    @heystevecc way to steal my thunder on the Weyerbacher/Mouflan combo!

    Hint #whocares: My target's wants/ratings list suggests he's way more into IPAs than BWs and his box will reflect that.

    To my target.. your box is going out on Monday... I'll give you a final set of hints on the bottles once it is all packed up...

    I swear to god if you're sending me a Dark Lord..... I'll have to retaliate by bombing the hell out of my target's porch (like, even more than I already am...)

    To my target: Your box is just about finished and as long as I'm right about your proclivity for IPAs, I think you'll be very happy.

    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.
    Hint #4 - I bought a bottle of Clown Shoes Billionaire to potentially include in this BIF but target lives in their distro.
    Hint #5 - My target lives within 3 day shipping distance via Fedex ground from my location.
    Hint #6 - My target lives in a state that has a team from all 4 major sports (and none are left in the NHL or NBA Playoffs)

    Should be sending out on Monday.

    Hmm, haven't been following the hints well but I could fit the bill for all those it would seem...for whoever it is, Billiionaire is a tasty beer!

    I didn't get any Hall's, but I do have a haul to share. This haul by far exceeded my expectations for this bif!

    [​IMG]

    Jacks Abby Barrel Aged Framinghammer. Want!
    Jacks Abby Baby Maker. Sounds unique and awesome.

    [​IMG]

    New England Brewing Attempted Redrum. Barleywine aged in rum barrels!
    New England Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout. Love anything barrel aged.
    Thirsty Dog Wulver. Obviously awesome
    Alamanac Bourbon Sour Porter. Already had two other Almanac sours, excited for another.

    [​IMG]

    For some reason I can't get this picture to rotate correctly, so screw it.

    Pretty Things Our Finest Regard. The regular barleywine. Looks great.
    Clown Shoes Billionaire. Definite want. Very excited.
    Allagash Tiarna. I have just recently started getting into sours, happy to get a couple to refine my sour palate!
    Allagash Midnight Brett. Another great sounding sour.

    [​IMG]

    The whole happy family!

    @boatshoes You killed it. You some how knew my favorite kind of beer above anything else is anything aged in a barrel! I dont see one beer that doesnt sound great to me. I told my two beer geek friends what I got and they threatened to do unholy things to me if I dont share with them. Haha. Thanks again boathshoes!
