    Officially down to 8 with a 2 or 3 in serious contention. Don't judge me for making an excel sheet.

    Hint: My Target's state has deemed bathhouses to be illegal.

    Boxes ready for a little ride.

    I forgot a note, but you'll figure it out I think, based on this picture.

    Was out of the loop for a while so I added two more hints.

    Hint 1: I'm shipping west to a city that has a baseball team that can suck my balls.
    Hint 2: I live in Ann Arbor, a city composed of two words. My target's city is also composed of two words.
    Hint 3: Still waiting on my target to ship, so I can!
    Hint 4: I'll be shipping to a business address.

    +1. I have it narrowed down to everyone not in CT...

    I'm aiming to send out towards the end of the week. Just need to round out the can part of the box with a couple more.

    Hint: Able to hit 4 of my victims wants, 3 of which are cans. These 4 wants are a good percentage (double digits) of his entire want list...

    There is just so much stuff to list, but WOW. I am literally speechless with everything here. A lot of new beers for me to try, some old favorites and some yummy chili to consume. Thank you again C_Roetting , this is just insane!

    Hint #5: My target has so few wants that are actually available in my area, and none that are not brewery only releases, that I will be going outside of the 200 miles to make sure I hit at least one want. I figured while I was going outside 200 miles I would go big, so the one want that my target will get is made 5624 miles from my hometown.

    While I was hoping that a nearby FL brewery was going to be caning some newer beers soon, after going up there this weekend and talking with some folks I don't think this will be happening before the shipping window closes. The good news for my target is that I picked up some other nice beers that night and I am shipping out over 300oz tomorrow and you should have a box on your porch before the weekend.

    Another hint-I also am not shipping to ltjska04, but I am enjoying the beers he sent me.

    The Rivertown vanilla coffee porter was outstanding, I love finding new beers/breweries that I have never heard of before and that was a great example of this and what is so great about BIFs, thanks!

    5. My target has approximately 3x more likes than me
    6. We are the same age, though that is changing tomorrow.

    I am shipping next Monday.

    Somehow I missed Ten Fidy on your wants. I'm drinking one now. My bad. :oops:

    I just added it recently...I didn't have it listed before because Ten FIDYS are year round shelf turds up here. But, I thought I'd add it for the hell of it, I decided just because I can always get it myself doesn't disqualify it as a want.

    So seekabrew.com is wrong? It shows they don't distribute to AK.

    seekabrew, at least for AK, is pretty inaccurate...I've sent them a few emails to help them with updating. I thought the Oskar Blues omission was strange though, we've had them up here for years.

    Box has been shipped. Forgot a note as well :oops:. Learned a lot for my first bif, while my box is good I need to step it up a little because some of the pics of the hauls are crazy, 400+oz! impressive.
    Hint 1: Shipping East
    Hint 2: My target hasn't posted in this thread yet (was true at the time)
    Hint 3: Targets state has a shoreline
    Hint 4: While in the military (Air Force) I have not been to your state
    Hint 5: My targets state is about 7 degrees north of mine if you look a a Latitude grid over the US
    Hint 6: My target has a want (which is in the box) from the same brewery releasing bottles of Little Freak this week at the brewery.
    Hint 7: The name of my targets state starts with a letter that is in the first 7 letters of the alphabet.

    Agreed on the volume, this BIF alone might will cause an uptick in the porch repair business. I hope my Target is OK with just a measly 310+oz :eek: Also it's left the state of GA and is working it's way (hint) towards the opposite coast. Included is a fun collab between a GA brewer and BFM.

    I've narrowed down to about 5 now...while I have 2 strong front runners this is still pretty up in the air for me!

    Hint 2: I live in Ann Arbor, a city composed of two words. My target's city is also composed of two words.
    Hint 3: Still waiting on my target to ship, so I can!
    Hint 4: I'll be shipping to a business address.
    Hint 5: My target will be getting a LOT of two different beers, in various containers.
    Hint 6: Also, lots of other stuff.

    That was the starting point. A place in CT has made that claim. I have no idea if it's true though - I'm not a 115 year old man who had a hankering for ground beer served on bread as a child, and was willing to travel to find it.

    Hint # whatever? My target has yet to say whether they have shipped or not. Also, my target lives in a state that has a football team that I would like to see upset their opponent so my team has a chance to move up in the BCS rankings.
