    So my box was pretty cool. My sender obviously put a lot of effort into it and tried to check every box in my list. Not only did I get some amazing and interesting beers (and a hydromel), but also a homebrew. In my experience with this crowd, the homebrews are usually even better than the commercial ones!

    I also got a really nice message that made me smile. Thanks Matt! And thanks Electro for putting this together again!

    You got it! Hope you enjoy! I actually haven't tried the hydromel yet, it's on my to-do list!

    I was working at work today and I've got a surprise waiting for me at my return. I'm really impressed byt the content. I'm already sipping the Jackie O's bottle and it's really something cool! Double Tempest bottles are Old school release but always good to drink. The Rye variant was interesting last year. I really hope they will make another variants this year.

    Sorry to be slow posting, life always seems to find a bunch of methods to get in the way. Don't know if either of those links work to see the images, but I got a great box. Thanks to my sender, looking forward to trying a bunch of beers that are new to me. Also love it when a bottle shows up with cobwebs already on it, felt like halloween. Thanks again

    Got a great box from my mystery sender, no return address even, ultra secret but they should hold their head up high because this is a killer box.........

    Oleksandr_Bogachov maybe? I live by the Rockies and the delivery timing lines up...........

    All of these look amazing and I just love big barrel aged stouts and barley wine, couldn't have picked these better myself.
    Now all I need is a chilly evening and I'll be popping some of these big boys!!!!

    I think I started in 2014. So not that old. It was the reason I finally joined after lurking for years.

    Oy vey. I'm totally shit at being prompt at posting - anything, basically. To my senders - thank you for the awesome beers. Ted, I forgot to include the 2015 Founders Blushing Monk you kindly sent... ffs can't even post accurately when I'm last to post.

    I had a blast this time - I have a blast every time - but I'm an anti-social beggar online, hate social media, spend 10 hours looking at a screen a day for work. Boo -oo Darcy's pity party over, here are my pics with "THANK YOU" to Ted and my other sender...



    Lastly, if anyone wants to trade (I'm in Ontario), just message me any time. Until the next CANBIF, be well, and take care.

    And thank you so much, Electros, for being such a great captain and manager of CANBIF. We are blessed to have you.

    @darcyk No worries, I'm impressed you've gotten into them already. I feel like such a slacker in comparison. lol

    For trading, if anyone has any Tilquin variants (other than plum) or Jolly Pumpkin Bam Biere I'm currently on the hunt for those. That or anything interesting really, I love getting boxes in the mail. lol
