    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.

    My box should be arriving in less time than four score and seven years from now!

    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 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.

    VikingHammer, thanks a tong for a great box and Hanny, thanks for letting me participate in this BIF with a just a small trading history. I cannot wait until the next round of this starts again.

    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.

    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!
