    I hada feeler open that laid dormant for a while, but it looks liek we have enough interest now! Pretty simple rules:

    1 BA barlwine
    1 regular barleywine

    60oz of anything else, but if youve got more ba or regular bwines, old ales or wheatwines fantastic!

    would also be cool to keep the box over 89% (or 4.0), good goal to hit but not a rule.

    post in this thread and ill compile a list, ( and start making space in my convos haha)

    so far we've got:
    @Wiscobrew, @C20Percent , @Lehighace06 , @Hotrod88 , @boatshoes , @Kurmaraja , @Dave_Treat , @henshawb , @dgthrasher , @RoninTK3 , @Thedrizzle , @Kramerbarthomer.

    we got a good number now, but im down to add a few more guys, maybe cap this at 20? If we dont get 20 ill close this Thursday April 17th and start getting targets out next week

    yeah if we can get 20 folks this will be pretty fun

    a bit more info I forgot to mention.

    Targets I plan to have out next week, but first ive began making room in my convos, please send me a BM with your address and info.

    I will be checking references this weekend so if you sign up with no prior history thats fine, i love helping new traders establish themselves, however new traders with little or no history will be required to send out first.

    Shipping window will be in may. the deadline will be 3rd week of may, we have 1 person that will be shipping a bit late in may.

    I'm in if there's room.

    Just to clarify, minimum is the 2+ 60oz?
     
  16. KevSal

    KevSal Meyvn (1,181) Oct 17, 2010 California

    Yea lets do 2 plus the 60. That's about 3 bombers or 2 750s and a 12. Not a whole lot but making it worth the shipping

    And at that I'll have to say this one is capped!

    I'll get the info from you guys tomorrow when I'm at work with my spread sheet

    Nice! Capped at 20?

    And it's 2 (1 BA 1 non BA ) BW + 60oz of SWTFYW. Yes?

    Looking forward to it! It isn't mentioned, but were you suggesting swag as part of the box as well, or would that just be an extra?

    yeah i thought about it, but i wanted to make it easier from everyone to get it without having to track anything down. a beer glass or swag makes fantastic extras tho...!

    Can someone enlighten me on what SWTFYW stands for? FWIW it's borderline incomprehensible IMO.


    LOL.

    This is going to be awesome. Looking forward to it. To my target, you will be getting only Barleywine. Hope that's OK.

    I'm considering this tact, I started thinking about which I'll send and ideas just kept coming to me; only problem is I have so many things I'd like to send that aren't as well.

    It's awesome that you can do that. I feel like I'm in a Barleywine dead zone. I've got like three, maybe four, really good options and then the quality drops significantly.

    Hell a box with 3-4 really good options would be a great box.

    Spoiler alert - CW BBBW will be in my box, assuming I don't have a target from Wisco.

    That box was more than just BW, though. And, the BW I did include are two good options, which I might include in this BIF. I just don't have the luxury of making an entire BW box. Unless I start including low-quality stuff.

    Waiting on one guy, he hasn't read the email yet. I'm 90% done with targets and Maryland sounds mighty appealing to the last few targets.

    Will keep you 2 on the wait list posted
