    Back in late October I won part 7 of this LIF, hosted by roseym1331. At the time I was intending to start this shortly after returning from Darkness Day, but clearly I failed. The good news is, I still have that bottle set aside for the day I got around to finally doing this. I'll throw in some other goodies as well and try to hit some wants, as usual.

    Please only participate in this LIF if you can start your own LIF in a more reasonable time frame than I did. Your LIF can be whatever type of competition you want it to be, the only rule you have to follow is players from your state and previous winner’s states are not eligible for the contest.

    States NOT eligible are:
    CA, MI, IL, NY, MN, PA, OH

    Also like the original, I'm going to limit it to the contiguous 48 states

    We'll stick to my Logical LIF rules of one guess per hint and you must pay attention to (and heed) those hints or you may find yourself ineligible to win (don't be too afraid, there are 2 ways to get back in, which I will explain later).

    I'll stick to the state theme and keep this somewhat about states. To win, answer the following questions:

    1) I will be moving out of Ohio before the end of 2013...what state will I be a resident of?
    2) I will be moving just in time to be hundreds of miles closer to one of my favorite beer events...name that event.
    3) What was the best beer I got to taste at that event?
    4) What was the 2nd best beer I got to taste at that event?
    5) What brewery am I now obsessed with, since first tasting their beer at that event?
    6) My best friend is moving around the same time and probably won't be able to attend the aforementioned event as a result...where is he moving, city & state?

    Good Luck (and sorry for the delay)!!!

    It seems logical that people are waiting for hints rather than just throwing out a wild guess...so here ya go.

    HINT: libby got zero correct, mcaulifww got one answer correct, Jtc2811 got two answers correct.

    Feel free to guess again.

    Hint: One person got two correct since the last hint. The event I'm referring to will come before Darkness Day.

    Guess again.

    Didn't Huna day already happen this year?

    Edit: Also...I currently live in Ohio. Illinois would be further than Ohio, so that guess might be a little illogical. Since this is the first time, I'll just give you a warning.

    Hint: The two beers are not from the brewery being guessed and both are from different states (but they are adjacent to one another). One of those beers is from the state where the beer event takes place. 2 correct answers is still the best score.

    Guess again.

    Hint: 4 of the answers have been guessed since the last hint...no one has figured out where my friend is moving (not even the right state) and only one of the beers has been guessed. The best score thus far is 3 correct.

    Guess again.

    If you look at this hint...you will see that those two guesses were illogical, since they guessed a brewery and beer from that brewery. But I'll give them a break since my wording could have meant that both are not from the brewery (implying that one still could be). New Hint...neither beer comes from the brewery in question.
