    LET'S GET IT ON!!!

    CANBIF: From the Cellar, 2020 (Round II).

    This special round of this CANBIF is thus; that beers sent out are either from your own cellar or a specialty release that is highly cellerable.

    This is a unique opportunity to dust of a bottle to be shared which you have already enjoyed and have an extra of or to pass along a cool small batch release that would age nicely.

    The rules are specific. Please take care to read through and understand the rules/details of how we intend to proceed.

    Please read them all in detail so there is no confusion of expectations and if you can't meet them evaluate if you should sign up.

    The rules are as follows:
    • Registration is through Email/conversation sent to Electros with full address (City, Province), phone number and personal email before midnight on June 15th, 2020.
    • Please also inform me if you have regular trading partner on BA.
    • Pairing will be available by July 18th, 2020, at the lastest. 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. Also know that your targent is not your sender. 1 sends to 2, 2 to 3 an so on. (1 box per participant)
    • 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. Since this is intended for a box of cellarable beers please be specific. Also if you have an untappd profile please share everything and post it!
    • You must be willing to ship between June 22nd and no later then July 10th. 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 send 6 beers. No more, no less, 6 total... Beers sent can be of any container and volime but the total volume must be at a minimum 3000 ml. There is no max volume, that is up to the sender. The contents of the box can be local, interprovincial or international. No restrictions.
    • Swag is not required, but is optional. Once sign up is complete please post hints of styles preferences as well as dislikes... I don't like sours. :wink:
    Please let myself know if you have any questions/concerns and also maintain good communication throughout. Please check your messages!

    This should be interesting!

    Cheers all!

    Ironically I have a bunch of cool beers that would be fun for this, but they are all quarantined in Seattle right now while I've pretty much decimated my home cellar over the last 3 months. Sorry gotta sit this one out too :confused:

    In again, gotta get that cellar trimmed down.

    If anyone gets me name, just looking for something new or from you area. I go by the same name on the other site for a reference. Always happy though with anything you deem worthy. Barley Wines, Stouts and Sours, I like it all.

    As far as likes and wants, I like big beers a fair deal (barley wine, imperial stout, eisbock, Baltic Porter, etc.). Barrel-aged is even better. And I'm ok with beers in this zone that have a high finishing gravity, plus pastrybois. Coconut, chocolate, hot peppers... yes please!

    Also love Lambic, but am otherwise not a big "sour" beer guy. Mixed-ferm/Brett beers are good in my book though.

    OK, I'll play along this time.

    Big barleywine fan, love Quebec made Scotch ales, have a large cellar, will likely send a mix of cellared local gems and imports.
