    Slight correction! The sending address got kinda shredded when I was opening the box and I mistook a last name for a first name. My bad! I'd like to apologize to @Ferris for that mistake, and thank him once more publicly for so thoroughly ruining my porch. Cheers!

    Hey man! Glad to hear that you're satisfied and that everything arrived in one piece; I feel terrible for dropping hints about Michigan and then not actually being able to get there in time. My old passport expired earlier this year and I didn't have any compelling reasons to replace it until CANBIF came along. Of course, the new passport arrived Tuesday this week - just my luck. I guess Canada Post must've had their hands full with all of the BIF boxes going around. :stuck_out_tongue:

    Oh well, at least I'll be able to cross the border for the next CANBIF, or for other trades in the future.

    Can't seem to get Flickr going. Will be enlisting help to get them up. Still can't figure out who it is!

    Every year I struggle to get pics up.
    I apparently am not internet savvy.

    Will keep at it and try to get photos and list up soon.

    It's a pleasure! Which beer have you had before? I checked your ratings (maybe too quick) and haven't seen any of the one I sent.

    Enjoy!

    That's a pretty tasty Berliner Weisse. The colour of it is awesome. And at 3.8% it's very thirst quenching! Just finished my last 2 squealers on the weekend. I think it will be a summer regular for me.

    That leaves me. From what I understand, the package is en route, but there was a shipping hiccup.

    Wow, that box was posted about ages ago! Did it go the North Pole and back! My wife had something shipped from north of Toronto, and it someone how made it to Alberta, then back to Quebec, and financially to her 2 weeks later. Good to see it arrived though!

    As promised on Friday, here are the contents of the great box from @Shawn_Winters . Shawn is a top notch BA who went above and beyond with this, thanks to the clods at Canada Post. It is much appreciated. If you are ever lucky enough to have him as your CANBIF target, treat him well!

    I'm thrilled with this box of Maritimes goodness. All beers are new to me as are all breweries.

    Cheers!
