    Not 3, what was I thinking? 4! It might make them sing a chorus when arriving!

    The state of my target is home to a sought after brewery only release.

    I couldn't hit many wants for my target since most were of the "hard to get" and not available in my region. Some great stuff going out in my box though and some favorites from my region. I have 5 pairs and one triplet in mind for my target. A couple of barrel aged versions, another couple is the same beer with different yeast, 2 vintages of an ageable beer, and one pair that is tied together in style and bottle design. The triple are very different but part of a series from the same brewery. Gotta buy the swag and a few more bottles, but will probably ship out by Wed or Thursday.

    I may be from Iowa but my box isn't coming from a "funny farm."

    Also, I couldn't pair any of my targets wants, so I broke the rules and sent a couple as extras.

    My first hint is that, despite both of us trading a decent amount, my target and I have no mutual trading partners. Also I have never visited my target's home state (although that's not saying a lot considering where I've been).

    I already have a couple really nice beers picked out, but will have to do some shopping in the next week or so to complete a good box.

    Hint #2: my target has reviewed a decent amount of beers and 11 out of 12 unique beers i am sending have not been reviewed. At the least I can provide a good number of "ticks" for my target. Not to say i am sending any undesirable beers. In the one that has been reviewed, he specifically said that he would love to try it again so I am helping him out there and he won't have to set up another trade for it.

    Cheers!
    Will

    The people shipping out later are perfectly cool in my book. I happen to have been collecting probably too far in advance and have an amazing local DIPA that is just 2 weeks old and I would like to get it to my target before it there is a hint of faded hops!

    Yes, I appreciate if everyone can forward me tracking info when you ship. Also everyone can send whenever you want, no need to hold off on sending or rush to get it out fast. I want to get my box out asap as it has some fresh local ipa's, but this one damn beer is eluding me!

    Ya, guess I should have stated the following too...
    - Wants are appreciated but not required
    - The general theme is pairs or sets, but extras of singles are always good to go.

    Haha, I figured as much. I'm looking forward to your box and the BIF box though. Hopefully I can get my box out early next week. Need to make a small roadtrip this weekend and load up.

    Okay, I am all set to ship my box. In addition to some crushing, I plan to drown my target in a sea of beer. I've got 2 triplets and 7 pairs, in addition to some extras.

    Ok my box is all packed and ready to ship. I will get it on the way at noon. I had to do some creative packing to get 15 total bottles/cans and swag into a 12 bottle shipper, but everything is snug and tight (hopefully). Be careful when pulling off the Styrofoam top incase anything is stuck in the top compartment!

    Hint #3: My target's state was one of the 13 original colonies.

    Hmmm, based on your three hints, I think there is a chance I am your target. NH is home to Kate and is the state that ratified the Consitution and one of the original colonies, plus I do have a decent amount of ticks here. Either way, I'm psyched to find out.

    I guess I played safe and have 1 big box and it's smaller brother.
    HINT - very patriotic state, the war of 1814 inspired the star spangled banner to be written here!
