    "Rules, I send a box containing two bombers to the winner with one of the bottles wrapped up so they don't know the contents (mystery bottle) and one unwrapped (bottle #2). The mystery behind the wrapping could be an awesome bottle or a double-deuce of steel reserve. Winner of the LIF only posts the portion of their haul that isn't going to be part of the next round. The recipient then has to start their own LIF that contains one of the two bottles I sent, either the mystery bottle still in its wrapping or the other bottle that is now wrapped up plus another bottle (or you may elect to have your new bottle be the "mystery bottle").

    How to win:
    I recently participated in a LIF that the participants had to guess the last 3 books read and am going to do the same thing here and include a 2 beer related questions so here goes. I will be giving hint intermittently and please only one guess per hint. I will leave this one open through the weekend and will choose a winner on Sunday evening/night. Sorry, only open to the lower 48. Good luck

    1. Book Currently Reading (part of a long fantasy series)​
    2. Last Book (beer related book)​
    3. Book Before That (science fiction book being made into a movie)​
    4. Favorite Beer from this past weekend (750ml bottle from west coast brewery)​
    5. My Favorite New Jersey Brewed Beer

    (Although NJ is my ancestral homeland, I haven't lived there for more than 15 years, so I don't know the beer scene that well. I'm going to go with the crowd on that one.)

    At this point there have been 3 correct answers in a post. Suffice to say, Kane Head High is correct for question 5. Try again!

    Clarification on #1? With a little quick research I'm showing "A Feast For Crows" is currently the second to last book in the series, but there are two books that have not been released yet...

    Another Hint for #2. Shaun Hill references this book in a old blog article (prior to starting HF).
