    A couple hints for target.

    1. I’m sending to the only other province in which I have lived. I lived in the biggest city in said province and in two smaller towns, one of which is a college town. My target lives in a city or town that is different from the ones in which I lived.

    2. My target will be getting a lot of beer that has touched wood. He or she seems to like beer that has touched wood.

    My first target still hasn’t posted and might get a box before they do, shouldn’t be a problem, lol……..odds are high that the box will travel down a very long road……….this road isn’t far from where I work strangely enough

    Target #2 is still getting “The Jhonny Tight Lips Treatment” that’s not a hint either, NO HINTS, or soup for him……..also not a hint……
    Not only are they not getting hints one of the beers expired 3 years ago, lol!!!! Being a jerk for no reason is the best……..

    So that’s where I stashed that tiny can? I didn’t intend to break the 6 beer limit so can we just say it’s a tip for all your hard work organizing?

    My target appears to be a serial player of this game.

    Packing up the box now and will likely ship on Monday/Tuesday.

    Haul Hint:

    A few BA stouts, a BA barleywine, a lambic, a BA Rye beer. Half from Ontario and half from abroad. Mostly in the 4.25-4.45 range on UT. I hope he or she will enjoy!

    I got a fantastic box from an unknown sender yesterday. I haven't tried a single one of these, nor even heard of some of them. They all look amazing and tasty. They'll also be put to good use the next time I have a bonfire (soooon...!) in the back yard. :grin: Again, thank you very much!

    Oh, and the BA Handful of Darkness has actually been a 'want' for a while as well, as I loved the regular version. I can't believe I lucked out and got one in this BIF.

    Thanks again very much to my sender. Very diverse styles represented. I have not seen or heard of any of these beers and most of the brewers too. Will definately be researching your home brewery...

    I am looking forward to weekend already to sample!

    Spoiler: The tablebier will be first.

    Cheers!

    When someone moves to my recipient's province from mine, they stereotypically always start asking others to join them. If they're a little less overt about it, they just spam us with the weather.

    Anyway, this person has pretty much identical tastes to mine, so fulfilling them shouldn't be a problem.

    Ok, I've returned from the woods... donated more than enough blood, acquired a darker skin tone(didn't think that was possible), and enjoyed ample time in and on the water.

    To my surprise I had this wonderful box awaiting me...

    Box finally just left. Should arrive at its destination early next week. I forgot what canbif we were doing so it's more than 6 beers.

    It is headed to the second city of Canadian punk rock to a target that I have definitely recieved an amazing box from but I believe I also may have sent a box to. I don't remember.

    Ditto on my part... bombs away for a lengthy journey across the country.

    Also, thank you again @remsad ... I unboxed everything in haste, took pictures, put 'em on ice then had to leave. After seeing you name on the label I should had known it was you! Merci beaucoup!

    My box is headed west to a city that has a somewhat-well-known film festival every year-- the winner of this fest's People's Choice Award in 2020 was Nomadland.

    The city my box is headed to also has a sports team in all of the standard major league sports.

    Box just arrived from my ancestral homeland (at least from about 150 years ago). A great box. I’m looking forward to all of it. Many thanks sender!!

    I’m in a bit of a rush now so can’t list the bottles, but the picture above should show the great haul. Again. Thank you!

    To my target. I already informed Electros of my delay in shipping. It should go out by Wednesday, express. I apologize for the delay. My wife has had some health issues over the past 4-5 days that kept me home and tied up. If it takes longer than that I will be in touch. Again, my apologies.

    The good news is that I am receiving a big box from the US tomorrow and can swap out something from the latest Jackie Os barrel aged releases. If this is something you think you’d like target, like this post and I will open the box and make that swap.

    I think both breweries will be new to me, although I may have had one bottle before from Unfiltered. I will link you on UT when I crack them open.

    I got another awesome box today! :sunglasses: I only have a 'real name' and not a BA username, and I don't know if the sender wishes that to be shared here.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    As a fan of SPBW I'm really looking forward to the 'Mares', and Half Remembered Dream is one of my favourites as well. I'm intrigued by the Beyond the Pale, as I don't think I've ever had anything by them as well. As for the Kriek, I can never have enough. lol

    Thanks again! :slight_smile:

    I have had and love B-Bomb, and I think I had a pour of Adam at Cask Days in 2019, but barely remember. Excited to try versions brewed in 2 different places! Also, the Lights Out can... love an imperial stout with coconut, and it's even rarer to see stuff above 14% these days... These all look very tasty! Thank you to whomever my sender may be! Perhaps @fiery1??
