    Well I did get to pick who I was sending to, so I might have chosen someone with wants similar to what I have access to. Or my target is getting some GLASSWHALES.

    To my sender, a buddy apparently just got me a Birdsong snifter (without me even asking) so I am no longer ISO.

    Scored two of my target's wants this weekend and will round it off when I hit one last place this upcoming weekend with the last glass and swag. That way I can ship next week.

    Just picked up a second want for my target. Grabbing a couple local glasses today, and picking up a couple more on a trip sometime in the next couple weeks. Still looking for swag, although I have a few ideas ;) Probably shipping early May!

    I should be able to get 1 or 2 wants for my target. I'll just have to make up for it with bad ass glassware.

    I have all 6 (well 2 on the way) glasses (all wants, 3-4 big wants) swag will be picked up this weekend. Might swap out one of the glasses if there is a cool glass at a certain beer festival I am attending this weekend.

    Have a few wants for my target. Looking for some more things that he may like. He may be the only one who does not need Cantillon glasses. We will see what I can find this weekend...

    I like to give and receive sets whenever possible. Would anyone here object to two of their wanted glassware?

    Hint#2: My target has a lot of wants I can't begin to fill, but I have a chance to acquire some of their top wants on a trip to Belgium.

    Also scored a want in a trade.

    To whomever had me. I have a confession....I can't stop acquiring new glassware, yes...it's a problem I know. But as a heads up check my gots as I just updated it. Also no worries at all if you were planning to send something I may have recently added I can always use more :)

    Now Hint #2 for my target: I will be shipping within a 1000 mile radius of where I live.

    You're sending me beer from Cantillon, Cascade, and Cigar City with matching glassware. That sounds like the best day ever.

    I guaranty that my target will get the most unique box. Maybe not the most expensive, but definitely unique.

    So I saw a familiar name on this huge box. My sender was Mr. totoropanda. Since he got stiffed on the Mikkeller order, my suspicions were correct: he filled my BIF box with Redd's Apple Ale and broken Peroni glasses.

    But seriously, folks. :p
    This box didn't travel too far, but it's still full of stuff I did not own (until today), including a nice want. So here we go.

    [​IMG]

    - Great Divide Yeti goblet (I have the one with the actual Yeti on it...is this one newer or older?)
    - Bourgogne des Flanders balloon
    - Drake's tulip (neat)
    - Goose Island IPA tulip (because you can never have enough GI stuff)
    - Mikkeller & Friends flute (want!)
    - Tighthead goblet (never heard of them, but this glass is great!)

    Other swag:
    - Avery tin tacker
    - Bell's bottle koozie
    - Bell's Expedition Stout '12 (will join its twin brother in the cellar :D )
    - Cantillon info pamphlet (appetizer for my possible trip next year)
    - What seems to be a ticket to Dark Lord Day '12 (woo I can go! ...oh)
    - various 1-pack and 4-pack and 6-pack boxes

    I believe the great divide is a mistake/ misprint glass as it is missing the yeti logo. it is at least from what i was told. Glad you enjoy it!

    I will ship on Friday and it should arrive on Monday. I have shipped to this city many times but I have never been there.
    I hope my shoulders are broad enough.

    Great start to the BIF, hope everyone else is collecting glasses/swag for their targets!

    Side note, I will be at DLD and related events starting tomorrow, so I probably will be a little slow in answering convos if anyone has any questions.
