    You got me! Looks like you're scheduled to receive a USPS box at home on Friday and it's companion from Fedex at work on Monday.

    Yup, I iz hollering at @Dimidiata again. This time is the Wayfinder/Modern Times collab, Abaddon. A nice Helles. Fun fact; the owner brewer at Wayfinder, Kevin Davey, worked at Chuckanut here in Bellingham, before leaving to help Firestone Walker get their lager game up to speed. He's a solid individual.

    Hey! I just now started my 4th. That ain't drinking. Now, if I had tackled those 12+% stouts you sent, you might have a point. :wink:

    Finished beer shopping today. Looks like there will be more than 1 box. I stalked your Untappd and I'll be checking something off of your want list. I'm shipping on Monday because of work the rest of the week would mean I'd have to ship on Friday. I'd rather the beer spend the weekend with me than on a pallet in a truck at an interstate off ramp.

    Boxed up 12x12oz cans earlier, will drop at the P.O. on y way home. My seemingly mime of a target can expect a follow-up box next week.

    @itracy63 I only use UPS and Fedex, I find the boxes are treated much better and you get less breakage. Now for just sending a few cans he Flat Rate boxes at USPS are great. It just seems like postal workers are angry and break shit on purpose.

    Sorry I have been MIA this week. Work is kicking my ass.
    From reading this thread my target is CLUELESS....
    However, I started putting my box together... I am even going to include some unlabeled beer from my favorite local brewery. i helped them can, so they told me I dont get labels. lol

    Right now its only about 120 ounces... that will change fast this weekend. Trying to get it out Monday....

    One more Hint.... shipping East of the Mississippi

    I don't know anything about Renaissance festivals, but since you're likely referencing Invincible and the other PA guy already found his sender it sounds like I'm getting a box from Idaho :+1:

    So. There are 2 facts of which I are certain.

    A: I are an idiot.

    B: I are no mathy major.

    11×16oz cans+1x12oz cans=188oz.

    OK! Just finished up the unpacking of @adrock314 2nd box. here ya go:

    Troegs (a long time favorite brewery, going back 25 years): Impending Descent 12/7oz C&C bottle (always happy to revisit this) and a C&C 750 of Mad Elf Grand Cru. Holy fuckballs!!!!

    Yuengling: Hershey Porter. A beer I wanted to try, but didn't think was worth trading for. Looking forward to it.

    Red Ribbon Mint Ginger Ale. This does me an intrigue.

    Stoneys Premium Lager: Another one that I wouldn't have traded for, but look forward to.

    New Trail: Something Deep and Meaningful. Never heard of this brewery, always eager to try new stuff.

    Bells 35th Anniversary Expedition Stout. YES!!!!

    Brooklyn Black Ops. Eager to revisit this one as well! We don't get Brooklyn out here in the PNW, but it is available in the Vancouver B.C. area. Weird.

    Thanks again, this is awesome selection of brews that I would have been happy with on its own, but on top of that killer box from yesterday? Mad whack G!!!!!

    Thanks so much buddy, looking for ward to cracking one of yours in a few minutes!


    CHREES!!!!

    CHREES! to @adrock314 for this New Fangs from Four Points I'm a finishing up. A surprising amount of alcohol heat from a brew that's only 8%.

    @itracy63 you've got ~338 oz heading your way early next week. This is definitely the biggest box I've sent with 16 different breweries represented.

    Again, into some @adrock314 beer, with a very nice "traditional" Pale Ale Horizon Shine (love the name) from Grist House. I really dug this one!
