    Let me start off this new forum Hints and Hauls thread by saying that someone in Delaware who lives on a street that reminds me of fresh hops should be receiving a package full of badunkadunks today!

    My box should also be landing today in a city where the longtime voice of that states baseball team was born.

    My box is set to land Friday. There are some very tasty beers in the box - many barrel aged - including one piece of non-black booty that I had to include and a glass that may or may not arrive in one piece that ties nicely to at least one of the beers. Hoping the glass arrives ok, but am somewhat worried as it was a tight fit.

    My box will be landing today, too. It's on the truck for delivery and my target already knows who he is.

    From my post that didn't make it on the site before the crash:

    Arrived back from vacation today to a 12-bottle shipper filled with booty. Let me start by saying I’m overwhelmed. As I went through the box it just kept getting better and better. Unbelievable box – I’m blown away by Fightthegdfight’s generosity. The haul (wants indicated with a “*”):
    12oz:
    2011 Firestone Walker Velvet Merlin*
    2011 Hair of the Dog Doggie Claws*
    Short’s Mystery Stout
    Green Flash Double Stout (Extra)
    Cigar City Madura Brown Ale (Extra)
    22oz/750mL:
    2008 Stone IRS (2008? Fantastic!)
    2011 Barrel Aged Yeti* (I was unable to get one in Chicago!)
    2011 Kern Class V Stout (not a want but should have been)
    Stone VE 09.09.09 (excited to try)
    2011 Speedway Stout* (major want)
    2011 Abyss*
    Swag:
    Taster glass from URGE American Gastropub Black Out event on 01/25/12. It’s like a white wineglass without the stem.

    Awesome haul. Thank you to Anthony for the great packing job and monster of a box.

    I finally got my box out the door yesterday. My target may or may not have recieved a message w/ a tracking number before the great beermail purge.

    If not, here's a hint - it's heading west, to an early shipper.

    Also, I'm pretty excited to see all the hauls hit this thread. I know a lot of booty showed up during the blackout.

    my box of booty arrived on tuesday. Mad big ups to MTBBright. I have it stashed away in my cellar just waiting on me to post. Unfortunately, I am having surgery tomorrow and an incredibly full dance card tonight. Hopefully, I will have time to squeeze in the haul this evening. I am very happy with the box I received, off the bat I can remember a Black Xantus, Elijah Craig 18 50/50 Eclipse, and other tasty booty. Thank you again, very much appreciate it.
