    LET'S GET IT ON!!!

    CANBIF: From the Cellar, 2021 (Round VI).

    This special round of this CANBIF only involves beer to be sent 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 Friday, June 30th, 2022.
    • Please also inform me if you have regular trading partner on BA.
    • Pairing will be available by July 1st, 2022, 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 target is not your sender. 1 sends to 2, 2 to 3 an 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. 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 MONDAY, JULY 4TH and no later then, MONDAY, JULY 25TH. 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 to send 6 beers. No more, no less, 6 total... Beers sent can be of any container size and volume but the total volume must be at a is 6 beers at minimum volume of 3000 ml, no maximum volume with varying container sizes. if container sizes are higher or lower in ml surpassing this minimum total that is up to the generosity of each 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!

    Questions, comments, please don't hesitate to contact me.

    Cheers all!!!

    I’m in !

    i like stouts, BA or not.
    I DONT WANT LACTOSE IN MY BEER Please !
    I like saison, triple, barley wine and Porter.
    Not a huge fan of smoked beer.
    If you have some sours to send my way, I don’t want kettle sour. I prefer barrel aged sours.

    very curious to receive your box !

    In.

    I have been curious about this for a while, why the 6 beer rule? Wouldn't a minimum total (which we already have) suffice?

    I'm in as well.

    For cellar-able likes, BA stouts and lambic usually rules supreme as it survives the best over time. Really, anything you think tastes good is fine by me.

    I’m in.

    While I’d be happy with anything sent my way that is liked by my sender, my current cellar overload tends towards lambic and wild, so I’m more interested in stouts and particularly Barleywines. But, of course, anything will be accepted gladly. My only request is no chili pepper beers please.

    Coronaeus on Untappd too for those who prefer to stalk there, but I rate or review everything here as well.

    I'm always in for stouts and belgians, saisons,
    Not a major fan of barelywines or sours, but I'm always interested in authentic lambics or wilds

    Flavour wise, rum and mint isn't up on my flavour palette.

    I’m in.
    As far as cellar stuff, I go for BA Stouts and Barleywine, Lambic and Wild Ales, both mixed ferm and clean Saison. Big fan of balance overall.

    Not nuts about smoked beer, enamel stripping sours, or lactose heavy sugar bombs.

    untappd is MysteryShip

    It a bit early but let's do some prep.

    To my dear sender,

    I am all about big stouts and barley / wheat / rye wines and similar styles. Would be happy to get some. Don't hesitate any adjuncts and there is no such thing as too sweet for me.

    My UT: https://untappd.com/user/Nesh05

    Happy Canada day everyone!

    I like anything well made. If you like it I likely will too. Stouts, barley/wheat/rye wine, old ale, Saison, Belgian styles... Etc. Please no sours. I will be working on getting target information out by Monday. I am little behind schedule. Cheers all!

    My target(s) are to the west of me.

    I am fond of big beers, barrel aged beer, lambic, old ale, strong ale, mixed ferm saison, quad, tripel, I have an unhealthy obsession with English barley wine (though I also enjoy american barley wine classics ie big foot, old foghorn, etc), I love stouts, I enjoy most adjunct stouts, freeze distilled things are pretty cool. Ol Stingo is right fucking good, huh? I will probably enjoy whatever you send if it is something you enjoy.

    I am not a huge fan of beers advertised as sours, I don't want your 11 year old pasteurized Flanders red ale (though I would take one that is a little fresher).
