    It's possible that the pecan bars have disintegrated at this point. I have mostly shipped brownies, which are quite a bit sturdier, and I didn't really think that through until after I had shipped. If so, I think they would make great ice cream topping. Or something? (Please let me know? :))

    I lagged a little bit harder than I expected but here goes:


    Brau Brothers Rye Wyne Ale
    Town Hall Barrel Monkey
    Weyerbacher Insanity
    CW Peruvian Morning
    New Glarus Enigma
    DuClaw Oak Aged Black Jack Stout
    Cascade Kriek
    Steel Toe Brewing Before The Dawn
    Hoppin' Frog Barrel Aged B.O.R.I.S.
    Epic Big Bad Baptist
    Founders Breakfast Stout
    Surly Coffee Bender
    (I feel like I'm forgetting one more, but I can't remember :confused:)

    Thanks again to Penguin3200 for killing it! Most of these are new to me, except the Cascade Kriek and Big Bad Baptist, which I both LOVE! So pumped to dig into these! Cheers!

    I am going to finish packing a couple things in my box, and it will be headed east today (or tomorrow at the latest). Hopefully those 2 growlers held you off until the next one lands.

    I have a feeling this is going to SoCal but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. UPS came today with no beer.

    DOOR (wft?) who signed for my box was nice enough to put it in my way so that I could trip over it this morning walking into my office, nicely played...

    18 pound box from huadog will be heading home with me in 2 hours with pics of the haul to follow!!!!

    It's probably a bit more than 18... I like to be conservative in order to save $ :)

    Do you still get away with that? I've noticed that even though the tracking info has my fudged number inputed throughout the duration of the delivery, they actually charge me the true weight of the box taken at their distribution center on my credit card.

    Just got around to pulling out all the beer I plan on sending (minus the two wants that will be in my possession next week). Looks like the grand total will be exactly 200oz of barrel aged beer, plus another 82oz of non barrel aged extra goodness.

    Just had a knock at the door and saw the ups truck drive away. I was excited for a minute. Turned out to be a birthday present from my brother. The shave kit was cool, but a big box of beer would have been cool too.

    I wrote down the pending amounts just now - I'll see what they post for - I never really pay attention. I don't have a scale so I'll always guess low.

    So now that I have been overwhelmed with the box I received I figured I'd drop another hint. Some of the beers coming your way come in boxes, they're slid in the box too outside of the foam shipper. OH that doesn't help you narrow it down until the box gets there... Well it's scheduled to land this Friday.

    dropped off my box after work today. 200+ ozs (almost all barrel aged) heading northwest to a BA who appears pretty close to his state's capitol as well as another BA who I've traded with numerous times (actually I'm surprised he's not also in this BIF).

    i believe he was also hoping to have his box before thanksgiving, but i hope the wait will be worth it. cheers!

    Not sure if it matters to my sender or not but I'll be out of town this weekend. I'll be back on Sunday though so if my box is scheduled to arrive before Saturday or sometime next week disregard

    If the non-participant you speak of is who I think it is, he expressed disappointment that he missed out...

    To my target, if you get a box from Jason Hoffman, that's me. I forgot to put a note inside.
  33. MarkIntihar

    MarkIntihar Initiate (0) Mar 17, 2010 Michigan

    On that note, to my target - if you get a box from Mark Intihar, that's me. I figure you're smart enough to figure that out ;)

    But in all seriousness, I just picked up a final tree-topper of sorts for my box of barrel aged ornaments. Box will be going out tonight or tomorrow, depending on how late I have to work to make up for my long lunch.

    I wanted to send out today but my CO2 tank was empty so I couldn't bottle my lambic as an extra. My box should go out tomorrow (maybe Sat.)

    By the way, to whomever is sending to me, I'm going to be at Eclipse next Thursday (the 6th), so if you send to me it'd be helpful if you try to get it here either earlier or later than that. Thanks!
