    If anyone in Gatineau-Ottawa has a 12-shipper for me to use I'd be in for it. (oh and in case, 96 since Chad said 97 already)

    I'm getting excited for pairings. I just saw the Canadian WBAYDN thread got closed, and so here I am.

    Hint #1: Whoever I draw, this beer won't be in your box (it'll be too old by then) but you will get a few that were brewed in the same province as this one was.
    Santé!

    Beer delayed is NOT beer denied!

    Adding to the drama... I went to the nearest Penguin Pickup to collect, and the person dropped the box as soon as she picked it up (I said, "it's big, and heavy"). No breakage. But just one more mishap along the way. :stuck_out_tongue:

    I am a hop head. I love all IPAs/DIPAs. Stouts, rye, ESB... I pretty much like all good beers. If you like it your I will too. The only style I dont care for is sours/tart wild ales. Cheers!

    Woo hoo!
    I am excited that this is finally getting under way and hopefully it gets a little livelier around here as a result.

    To whoever draws me:
    [​IMG]

    I am pretty easy going. If it is well-made and tasty I will like it. There aren't any styles I dislike per se, but I would most like getting a wide variety of styles of random local beers that I haven't had before.
    • My reviews here on BA are a fairly good indicator of things I have had.
    • My "Gots" list is of all of the Canadian (non-Quebec) beers I have ever had. Lucky for you, it is a pretty short list and I am eager to try local stuff from beyond the borders of the Belle Province.
    • Sours, fruit-heavy stuff, and super-boozy/pastry stouts are perfectly alright to send but I'd prefer they be in the minority if at all possible.
    • I love stickers for the ol' beer fridge, glasses, Large t-shirts, any weird local food/snacks, nothing at all, nothing at all, nothing at all..., or even just more beer.
    • How's that for open-ended?? I said I was easy to please.:rolling_eyes::beers:
    Looking forward to this!

    I like anything well made and love trying new things. That said, also super happy to revisit old classics. Would be very happy to get a box of things you love you drink and are fairly unique to where you live. Some of my favourite things these days are funky but not crushingly sour. If I had to pick a least favourite area, probably anything super sweet/unbalanced in that direction.

    My untappd is jaymek

    Looking forward to another round of this!

    Long time lurker here, this thread actually motivated me to sign up for a Beer Advocate account.

    I’m not too picky in terms of beer styles but I’d definitely say that I am drawn to fresh hops and big stouts (pastry/RIS/barrel aged/etc.) Brett beers are often a hit or miss for me and are not something that I typically seek out.

    Seeing how this is my introduction to a BIF, I’d be more than happy to receive some local variety that you enjoy. Willing to try anything, and often find myself chasing hype as I continue to discover the craft beer universe. New ticks are always fun, but there’s nothing wrong with revisiting classics.

    I currently live in New Brunswick and have explored much of its beer scene and Nova Scotia’s. However, my exposure to other parts of the Canadian craft scene is somewhat limited.

    My Untappd profile is AMado88, which details my brief history of logging/checking beer in.

    Definitely looking forward to the whole experience!

    Hint 2:
    I don't know who you are yet, but I have already amassed most of your box and reinforcement is coming *up* tomorrow. Now I am just praying that I don't find out you've already tried everything I have set aside for you.

    -----------------------------------------

    Hint 1:

    Your box will contain beers from Quebec

    The beer draw will happen after I have sent out all target emails. I will then get my lovely assistant (my little daughter) to pick the lucky number. I will be working on it right away so check frequently! Cheers, have a happy easter/long weekend.
