    Hey reciever, your new provincial mascot is pretty cool. I'm just waiting on a trade to come in on friday, then you'll be recieving some West Coast Best Coast treats. Like a lot of them. I'll be a bit late in the window, but I run with 2 day shipping, so hold onto your butt.

    Few more beers until the box is completed!

    Hint: Your west of me as previously stated, but your local team (if your worried about these things) was not part of the Canadian resurgence into the payoffs.

    To my sender. I'm game for almost anything. Not a big coffee guy so coffee stouts and smoked are kind of lost on me.

    Love IPA, weird stuff, I'm on the other site with the same user name. Can figure out what I've had, I haven't updated wants in years. Just take what you like and buy 2.

    To my sender: Challenge accepted. My same province but I'm right by the Quebec border.... Let's see what I can get. KBS is now off the table because I figured you probably loaded up at the LCBO as well. Touche.....

    Dearest Target:

    Bellwoods just released Blackberry Jelly King and a new super-oated pale ale. Congratulations, your box just got better.

    Bubble wrap counts as swag right?

    Depends. What brewery's branding is it embossed with?

    ISO: Twin Sails bubble wrap

    Styrofoam surgery compete. Box ready.

    My target will receive 5 beers in the Can Top 100, a great many more that should be, and as far as I can surmise, beers that are all new to you with exception of one (diff vintage). You will also revisit a particular brewery's beer though you may not realize it at first.

    Hot darn. A new NEIPA, a big DIPA, a multigrain IPA and some other wierdness have all come into my possession. I intend to deliver them to a city not quite in another city but close enough. I've spent many summers working the land out there.

    OK, package "Accepted at Post Office" soon to be in the infamous "in transit" status I'm sure.

    Final hint to my target: learn how to spell your home town properly :p

    I've got a shiny new shipper ready to make its maiden voyage, some of the slots are already filled and I intend to round it out this weekend and wish it well on it's trip out west... It could at least gather a sticker or two for each province it will pass on the way to a new home.

    I've gotten some input but not a lot to go on, if you were going to add some extra input for me now would be a good time!

    There is good news and bad news. The bad news is that my planned trip to Vermont has been postponed to well after the end of the shipping window. The good news is that my target will get a second bonus box later in May.

    I guess this means I have a few slots that need filling... Good thing I just got a shipment of beer in the mail from one of the very few progressive breweries in this Province that allow you to order their beer on-line and have it shipped straight to your door!

    My target does not have this beer on their wants list, however it's a 2014 vintage of a style they feature prominently on said list.

    And local!

    Glad I could acquire it today from a fellow local's cellar, it's going to make a nice addition to the collection of beers heading east.

    I hope my target three provinces over likes the idea of new Bellwoods releases, because he's now getting a few. Will have to wait to ship until next week, however, in hopes of grabbing a couple of last styro fillers first.

    Pro Tip - Spend the extra $1.50 and require a signature. This really helps avoids parcels being left at the door (although they've been better about that lately) and helps with any disputes.

    Stopped by a few local bottleshops and ended up finding five of my targets wants. Adding to that a few cross the border offerings and a couple cellared brews. If i calculated correctly i think ive got 8 wants covered total. Just have to pack it all up securely and send it off now!

    Ok, I'm ready to fill all the slots with a porch slammer. Luckily my target's porch looks to be well connected to the ground as part of a redish brick structure. On it's way Friday to Canada Post's ever informative "in transit" status.

    All this talk about a Blackberry Milkshake IPA ... so jealous ... a local brewery yesterday put out a test batch Mango Milkshake IPA last night and I went all the way across town to try it. They fooled me once with their take on a "New England IPA" and I swore I wouldn't get fooled again ...but I did. Never seen such a transparent and thin "milkshake" IPA in my life. So disappointing.

    I can't understand how a brewery would so willingly put out a beer that is so far from what they attempted. I've never brewed a beer in my life and all I had to do was look at a glass of it to know it wasn't going to be anything close to a milkshake IPA.

    ... at least there's still always Half Pints who has been killing it lately. :)

    It looks like I picked a good day and time to do a Bellwoods run. Apparently, blackberries were on sale or something!!

    Oooh "LA LA LA LA" a beer just released locally today that has "milkshake" in the title, from what I understand it's one of my targets favourite styles. Guess I'll pack that up in the box heading your way soon. About four slots left to fill and possibly some styro-surgery to fit in some extra. Looks like the content on this box will be based on three countries, that's less than the amount of provinces it will travel. I've tried to find a balance between drink fresh and brews that can be enjoyed with some age.
