    The season is changing with the days getting longer, temperature colder, and all the little woodland creatures preparing for a long winters nap. So it must be time for the CANBIF: Fall 2019 edition!

    Always a great trade this is also great opportunity for a great experience for those new to trading/CANBIF and those returning.

    So here are the nuts and bolts of CANBIF; the rules... Please and I stress this greatly to care to read through and understand the the rules/details of how we intend to proceed. Please read them in detail so there is no confusion of expectations and if you can meet them, especially the specfic dates:

    • Registration: Email/conversation sent to Electros with full address (City, Province, post code ), phone number and personal email before midnight on September 30th, 2019. This is for your sender as well as emgency contact purposes for myself.
    • Participants who have never traded need to inform me and I would advise on acquiring a styro shipper.
    • Please also inform me if you have regular trading partner on BA.
    • Pairing will be available by October 2nd, 2019, at the lastest. PLEASE at this point reconfirm one last time all information in regards to your shipping address is CORRECT. Pairing consideration is given to previous participants on the basis of where they have sent and recieved in previous rounds. A balance is always tried to be struck in regards to the above and to break down of participants geographically. All are choosen at random. Anyone that is interested in a second box please indicate this in the first email to me and I will take it into consideration. Also know that your targent is not your sender. 1 sends to 2, 2 to 3 and so on.
    • There should be no communication between target and sender. If there is any case for concern it ahould be relayed to myself. This is a surprise of who/where your sender it shipping from. Everyone should post a likes/dislikes and preferences of styles that are your favourites. Your sender will try to go off this as well as your BA reviews/ratings. Also if you have an untappd profile please share everthing and post it!
    • You must be willing to ship between October 3rd, 2019 and the October 18th, 2019(weather permitting). If there is any question that this shipping date cannot be met I would appreciate a consideration of not signing up for this round.
    • Amount of beers to be sent: Participants are expected at a minimum to fill a 12 slot styro shipper with a minimum of 8 x 650 ml and 4 x 341/355 ml containers or a mixture of sizes that are equal to this (6564ml). There is no maximum fill levels. That is left to the discretion of the sender. At least half of the bottles should be local to your home province. The rest can be an assortment of other provinces/USA.
    • Anyone that is new to CANBIF please use google to easily look up previous rounds for a feel of the festivities, and what to expect.
    • Swag is not required, but is optional.
    • Once you've sent your box put to your target I ask that you send the tracking code to me.
    Please let myself know if you have any questions/concerns and also maintain communication when needed.

    Again, anyone new to Canbif I suggest googling previous rounds to get a feel of the what the experience is like and if it is right for you.

    To all those who are returning; welcome back, and to those new; welcome!

    So... let's get it on!

    Also please post a number between 1 - 100 for the beer draw. A number will be drawn out of a hat by my lovely assistant and the lucky BA will get a surprise beer from my cellar. Cheers all!

    I'm in again too. I loved the experience last time and got some great beers. Thanks Electros. I choose #4.

    LIKES: Coffee in beer! Like everyone else on here, I enjoy old ales, barleywines, and BBA stouts that aren't diabetes sweet. I'd be happy with anything barrel-aged that isn't stomach-dissolvingly acidic or tastes of diacetyl. I like quads/dubels, but not tripels. Anything dry and clean. Well-made or innovative mead (Schramm's, B. Nektar). Wee Heavies. Gimmie that crazy ABV shit.

    DISLIKES: Smoked beers. Lactose in beers other than milk stout. Most spiced or fruited beer. Most recent IPAs - DIPAs are great, but not NE IPAs. I don't tend to like IPAs with a piney profile or hop burn/aggressive hopping either. As a rule, I tend find most lagers skunky.

    You can find me on Untappd with the same username, and I'll send Electros a link to my cellar. Thanks man!

    I'm in and I'll pick 47 for my number.

    LIKES: Sub-6% ABV IPA's, lambic, CDA's ,wild ales, saisons, etc. that I can crack with dinner, as well as higher ABV barrel aged stouts and the like that I can share and sip slowly with friends.

    DISLIKES: I haven't had too many barelywines that I've liked. I also don't like milkshake IPA's that are zero carb and look like orange juice. :slight_smile: Also not a fan of (D)IPA's and the like that are 8%+ ABV.

    I enjoyed the recent cellar version, but the timing of this one is bad for me. I’ll actually be on a beer trip for most of the shipping window so will stock up for the next one.

    Just driving around New York State. Planning to visit Mortalis, Plan Bee, Suarez, Hudson Valley, Equilibrium, and then a bunch of the Brooklyn stops. Probably a little Easter Pennsylvania too.

    To everyone that has signed up so far if you have any friends on BA that you think would enjoy this trade pass the information along.

    Also a reminder to everyone please do check your BA inboxes on a regular basis throughout or set up the feature that when you have a new message a notification is sent to your private email.
