    in my opinion this is up to you...stickers, coasters, bottle opener...t-shirt...glass? there are tons of things. depending on your target some things are better than others. i'm met some people who love stickers more than anything else. i think you do great with swag. you gave me that bell's tick book in that trade and i love that thing.

    yeah, sorry Chicagoland guys, in my attempt to mule & spread some love I sent out the Teku's which are the perfect swag. My apologies to anyone this might affect. Although I'm sure a target would be upset if they had 2 Tekus...

    Yeah, those individual shippers you sent as the inner packing of the SS box were a life saver. They were prefect for shipping just one glass and didn't require me to collect enough packing material to send out 6 boxes. Thanks Ben!

    Fun fact: if you received a teku from me check the bottom/top of your box. It will have some writing on it, which when all 8 boxes are combined says "Deck the halls with boughs of holly, Fa La La La La"

    That was my intent; it was the ultimate "gift that keeps on giving".

    Ha! Forgot about the writing until I got my box and said "Of? Whats that for? OHHHHHHHH yea!"

    I cut one up earlier today to pack a snifter for dsal. That snifter was originally going to be my swag for the box, but due to muling and friends that is no longer viable. Looks like I just have to head to CCB to buy a tshirt tomorrow. The size will be large.

    Why do we even make rules for these things anymore? Just so we know which ones we're breaking?

    Well fucking done, Brian!

    I'm sure if we set no rules, we'd all send 3 bottles with one being a 6 month old IPA.

    Well damn..whoever has me I want to remind you that I followed the rules. I put together a pretty bad ass box...but i still followed the rules. I hope whoever has me does the same :)

    Steimie Jan 7, 2012 Michigan

    In all seriousness, I think I stayed pretty much within the rules. The KRE and the BBPt5 were brewery-only releases (25oz total there, I think) and the others were all shelf beers. I didn't even realize until I had everything laid out for the box that it was more or less within the guidelines that we sent.

    Next BIF, I'm blowing up the fucking rules.

    Just bought a bottle that I absolutely hate. My target loves it, though, so he should be pretty pumped. He can no longer get this one, though it was once locally available to him. I'm honestly surprised to still see it on the shelf here!

    I have my trusty shipper on the way back to me from CO. This box is headed on Monday!!
     
  32. dsal89

    dsal89 Jul 6, 2008 Indiana

    My box should be arriving to my target tomorrow. Everything in it was brewed in my state except two of the bottles. Those two bottles were actually brewed closer to me than two of the other items in my box.

    Not sure if this is that great of a hint but my targets home state has a school that is a higher seed in their bracket for the ncaa tourney

    I've given up on trying to figure out who is sending me a package. I have not, however, given up on liking 100% of the posts in this thread.
