    For my second Target, I didn't see any post for this edition. I really hope to see something before sending something really cool :slight_smile:

    A couple vague hints to my target:

    I'm sending west! This is obvious, as for me to send east, the box would be going overseas. But I'm sending pretty far west! Your province borders a state whose name is the same as a chain of steakhouses, and isn't coastal, but does have a (small) body of saltwater within it.

    To my sender, I'm partial to most any good beer I haven't tried. I'm Oakes on that ABI-owned site, and that list is up-to-date on what I've had.

    I have sent my box today. Where is the box going, you might ask? Well, let's say that I watched the movie Clueless in 1995 at the Metropolis in this city. As if!

    It was at the Lougheed Mall Cinema, not the Metropolis.

    I probably should have already posted this. Apologies.

    I love big malty beers. High ABV, Barrel aged, eisbocked, etc. I love a well made lager. I love hops. I will definitely fuck with a pumpkin beer, if it's good. I don't dislike an adjunct laden beer,. obviously. I appreciate farmhouse/Saison. I love doppelbock. I love English beer; mild, bitter, strong ale, old ale, barley wine, even the much maligned English IPA. Generally if it's well made and you like it, I will probably too. Cider/mead and well made homebrew always appreciated.

    Not a huge fan of sour beer. To be clear I don't dislike when a beer is tart, but I generally don't buy or enjoy a kettle sour. Also never been a huge fan of Irish red ale or American Red ales.

    To my targets, you are both in the same province. Both are east of me. Both have been doing this BIF for a while.

    Hints:

    1)a) I have sent to you before.

    1)b) I have not sent to you before.

    Hints:

    2)a) I am now way farther east of you but you'll be getting your box a wee late when finally not...

    2)b) I am in a province that depending on where you visit might seem very familiar. Your box will also be late.

    To my target:

    - you have ticked/logged a lot of beer, but not that much from my home province;
    - the package(s) will traveling quite a distance to the West;

    I'm likely taking advantage of the free shipping Tuesday through CP so expect to receive at least 2, or more packages over the coming weeks. The first part went out yesterday, and is simply a taste, I'm still searching for some goodies to ship your way so stay tuned!

    Just a heads up, the 10 day weather is showing a low of -10C for Winnipeg a week from Saturday (the 24th). Best to get them out sooner rather than later if you're crossing the prairies.

    Hark, a wild box appears! Thanks to my sender. Tons of great new beer and old favourites! So many great looking stouts in here.

    Super excited to finally cop some Messorem and Emporium! ...and anytime a Barrelled Souls stout shows up it's a good day.

    Just throwing this out. I normally hit the 5 kg spot on for CP free shipping. A one of my boxes was over. Will I get charged? Anyone have an experience like this?
