    This BIF is closed to new participants and is a follow up to the No Sophomore Slumps Allowed BIF http://beeradvocate.com/community/threads/no-sophomore-slumps-allowed-bif-hints-and-hauls.11578/

    As stated the rules are:
    - Minimum beer spend of $40
    - Swag to include 1 glass (pint is fine) + 1 local/regional food item
    - Target ship date is June 25th. You MUST ship by this date.
    - 14 participants

    The beers you send should include locals, but don't feel restricted by that as it is very likely you have access to beers that your target does not, so those are fair game as well. Check out http://seekabrew.com/ if you have question on state distributions. Knocking of all your targets wants is not necessary for this BIF, but if you can hit a couple that's great. So make sure your list is updated.

    Please remember to ship a box that you would enjoy receiving.

    Targets have been sent out so please let me know if you did not get yours or have questions let me know.

    We have a great bunch of people in this so I'm looking forward to lots of fun, participation, and great hauls.

    I'll be shipping northeast to a state that has one side touching a body of water. Looks like I'm the rookie of the bunch so I'm going to put in the extra effort to put together a kick ass box.

    I got my first and only speeding ticket in 20 years of driving on my way to a MLB game in my target's state. Will try and not hold that against him...

    Hint #1: My target is new to our group.
    Hint#2: My package is traveling less miles than the package I sent iin the first round and further than the package I sent in the second round of this BIF.

    Looks like my target and myself have similar wants. I should be able to hit a few.

    Pretty sure I can go all wants for my target, but I'll probably throw in a few locals as well.

    Happy to see that I'm a pretty good match for my target's wants.

    Box will be heading west-northwest when the time comes, and it'll be going pretty far.

    I'll be shipping West to someone that already has a familiarity with some of the best local brews. It's going to take some thought to put together a box that is completely new to them.

    I think I would send the package ahead and pick up some midwest goodies along the way.

    Hint #3. Picked up a want (or should be) want for my target today: GI Lolita. Also have one local food item secured.

    Most beers for this round of the BIF are coming from my stash, or are everyday drinkers for me.

    I'm shipping to a state that had my favorite hockey team when I was a kid. I have one want, will for sure be picking up a second want, and with some luck may get a 3rd.

    My target has substantially updated his wants in the last week. One of the beers he added during that time is brewed within fifteen miles of my house. I may include a growler of it in his box...

    I was in my target's city for a festival, one night I had some Maple Bourbon Bread Pudding for dessert. All bread puddings since have paled in comparison.

    i have four big time beers off of my targets wants, but i will probably still add more. and i got the food thing figured out! it was so obvious all along, nation wide snack made right here in my home town. the only hint for today is that my target lives too far away to walk.

    My target has a ton of wants -- many of which I can hit. Definitely excited to put this box together.

    How 'bout a Dineen jersey?

    Hint #2: my target lives in the same state as one of my very favorite breweries, but would have to drive more than two hours to get there.

    Hint #4: Since I can't figure out how to ship a 8 piece bucket of chicken safely from one commonwealth to another, I'll have to figure something else out. Side note, someone is getting some bourbon barrel smoked sea salt.

    Hint#2. My target only has one want on their wants list that is currently available off the shelf here.

    I snagged that beer and a few locals after work today.

    anybody heard or seen diceman stl lately? i hope his lack of participation so far isnt a sign of things to come. i'm shipping to a state that at one time had three members of the same family in the dugout of a major league team.
