    This box is on a FedEx truck for delivery in a state where they have a hurricane every now and then - and in a neighborhood where the mailboxes look like they're built to withstand hurricane force winds...FORE!!!!!

    so the planning is done, the beers are in hand. Here is the breakdown. 352.2 total oz's, here are the particuliars:

    Hole #3: Shelf Turd. 64 oz's of a top want from our targets
    Hole #4 Everyone loves this beer right? 64 oz's, 3 year vert, BA score 100
    Hole #5 Dig in that cellar. 5 year vert of a BA beer, you might have limited access to it, but I don't think you have one going back to 08

    Hole #7 Take a mulligan.... Send one Barrel Aged beer + The base beer it was made with. 48 oz's, 2 for each of you.
    Hole #8 Brewery only. "What's that sign say!?" A brewery only beer, minimum 22oz (can be more than one bottle or a growler) from a brewery in your home state. 25.4 oz's, 1 of 300 or so, 2012 - Imperial Stout in first-use Woodfoord Reserve bourbon barrels for 6 months." BA grade of 97.
    Hole #9 So fresh and so green. 25.4 oz's of BA grade 93, released last Saturday.

    Now that our target has been identified I'm shifting my focus to our sender (please, oh please, oh please let it be biglobo and friend). If it's not you, then I will forever refer to you as Tiger Woods since you're killing it but appear to be bending the rules in the process. But if you're our sender then I will play the part of Helen Keller and turn a blind eye.

    Our box is not going to the land of Charm City. So.......we are rebels, just trying to spread beer karma and make our targets shit their pants. Besides, I just re read the rules. What rules are we breaking? There are no maximums set on any hole.

    Hint for our targets -
    There are a few golf courses within a five mile radius of the delivery location (at least according to Yelp). There is also MiniGolf within that radius as well!
    Box is on-time with a delivery estimate of Wednesday.

    Just boxed everything up and FalconA and I are quite happy with the box we are sending out. Plenty of PNW goodness. Every hole in the box is from a West Coast state, 4xWashington, 2xOregon, 2xCali, 1xAlaska.

    This looks awesome !!!! However, if I might cite the USGA Rules Of Golf........"the penalty for carrying too many clubs in the bag is two strokes for each hole played, not to exceed four strokes per round"

    Strangely enough, either myself or my partner have been in another BIF(s) with one or both of our targets, though have never sent to either target.

    I think even with the penalty, based on what I know, they might get the automatic qualifier for the Ryder cup.......

    Don and I might be a little bit delayed shipping our box because I was hoping to throw in a special bottle from a release up north but somehow it got postponed due to snow?!?! Hoping to get it out by second week of June, we should just need to fill two more holes.

    By the way any PA guys in this BIF? Tired Hands is brewing the absolute perfect beer for Hole #9 today ;)

    One of our targets has posted on each page of this thread, but it is not his address the box is going to. The box is on the truck for delivery today in a town that shares part of it's name with an LA nightclub in a movie from the 90s.

    That's definitely us!!!!!!! :D Don lives in West Roxbury so I'm almost positive you are referring to A Night at the Roxbury! We were actually just planning on when we could do the tasting if we got the box this week, looks like it will probably be next Friday (ACBF is this weekend).
