    Really glad you liked the box, I had a blast putting it together. Pretty sure that is one of the last available Half Acre coffee mugs in existence. Had to scramble to hunt it down but I was victorious.

    Enjoy!

    Box is out finally. Again, an apology to my target, who's state I can not name a single brewery from, but is will known for their college sports team and has a state flag with unique qualities.

    The last hint: The package I sent will take one week to arrive at the target's location. He lives in what many would consider a craft beer mecca.

    Box is in my target's state, should be delivered Wednesday. If your initials are the same as a very highly regarded beer from my state, well, you might be getting some glasses soon.

    My package will arrive on Friday and is heading to a place where a legendary pirate hid some treasure.

    One week to get to Portland!?! Well at least I hope Portland is a craft beer mecca. And coincidentally, you were one of three people I suspected my target to be a month ago....very, very interesting.

    To my target:
    I screwed up and forgot to pick up a particular beer that I wanted to, which would have given you double the #ProperGlassware. However, I threw in a second bottle that if you put your swag on when you drink it, you will have #ProperSwag.

    Hopefully this is me :) Unfortunately, though I'm out of town until Friday and won't be able to open it until then....though if it was me there is someone at my house to bring it inside and confirm it arrived safely.

    Expect some glass pornography tomorrow from someone in a city named after a guy who's writings are discussed in one of my favorite works of existential philosophy: Kierkegaard's The Crowd Is Untruth.

    There are at least 12-13 packages in transit or sitting on porches. So excited to see some glass porn.

    There are two boxes out for delivery in the great state of Illinois. These are heading to someone who has already guessed that they are my target.

    Despite numerous packages I have shipped to this location arriving in 3 days, this one is apparently going to take 4 and will arrive tomorrow.

    I have no idea if the package I'm receiving will land soon, but just a heads up, I will be out of town tomorrow and arriving back home on Tuesday. Somebody will be home to bring the package in from the outside though.

    My box is on track for a Friday delivery. It's going to someone not very active in this thread and will be traveling to a Navy yard.

    I have a couple of boxes waiting for me at home, I have a feeling one of them is BIF related.

    Josh is one of 3 people I trade with regularly. Based on your reaction, and without even seeing the haul, I am glad I asked him to participate this round. Not that I had any doubts he would send a killer box.

    I'm severely drunk from holding a Bourbon County event at my bar, but I had to bust into my GLASSWHALES haul. I'm too inebriated to take an in focus picture right now but it will be taken in the morning. One things for sure, this Florida Jagoff deserves a thank you box. One box of amazing beers and another box of top wanted GLASSWHALES. A good day has been had. On top of everything I'm pretty sure he invented some voodoo magic packing material to package glasses. It was like see through paper but as strong as a rock. My wife was not amused having me chew through it to get to the glassware. She's afraid of a foreign body surgery for me tomorrow.

    Thank for for outing my sender...I can not be bothered with looking up how to spell it properly in my current state of mind. All I know is he's cool people and I want to kiss him.

    No problem at all...happy to hook you up with some FL GLASSWHALES and beer to boot. As for the packing material, that stuff IS incredible. It was left over from some very fragile wine glasses I received as a wedding present last month so I thought it would be good to keep around for this BIF. Feel free to pay that packing paper forward when sending future GLASSWHALES. Cheers, my friend!
