    Great boxes @akatz821 @thebeers !
    I love the glass, my favorite glass broke about a month ago and I keep meaning to replace it but haven’t had a chance, this will likely take it’s spot.

    Already popped one of the peanut and chocolate candies and it’s delicious, I’m trying not to finish them all today haha

    target #2 hint: I want to send a particular regional food out to you but cannot.

    LET ME SEE YOUR CAN CANS 9TH EDITION TO START!!!

    Thinking about opening sign ups next week with targets going out after around June 1st.
    And shipping window until first week in July. It would be a quick hit.

    Like this post if you would be interested. I do not want to hijack the thread with a bunch of posts. Just gauging interest. I will post this in the LMSYCC8 hints and hauls so you can post to your over used livers content.

    I too, have been hit by @Vidblain today! This glass is badass and I can't wait to try these awesome brews!

    [​IMG]

    So about these nut rolls, pretty much everyone in the brewing industry knows them because BSG, who are based in MN, hide them in pallets of malt. There are loads of threads on r/thebrewery. I've never actually tried them before because our brewers gobble them up immediately, so now's my chance! Thanks so much for this awesome surprise box, it really made my day!

    For sure, John - hope you enjoy! Expect another box when I'm home from Dark Lord!

    It sounded like you were interested (+ I always enjoy sharing the Barrel Theory love), and you deserved a ninja box - hope you enjoy, Jordan! Sorry I couldn't grab you a glass - they were SUPER busy that day (BA Ice Cream Social release day), and I just barely managed to grab those extra crowlers for you!

    Such a jerk move! Just kidding! I should be up to MSP in the near future for a SpartanNash food show. I’ll let you know and probably drag some Speciation bottles along for you.

    I mean, who knows whether I'll survive to ever send anything again? Had to get out a token box at the very least!

    I'll never say no to Speciation, but @FlintB may get ornery if you horn in on his distro! :wink::grin: If you make it down here, definitely let me know - I'd be happy to buy you a beer at Barrel Theory/Wild Mind/Surly/Dangerous Man, etc.!

    Glassware > beer :grin: Really glad you enjoy that one - love the glass, and the beer! Citra is my jam!

    Hint #1: I’m thinking of a football player. He has played in this century

    hint 2: He has use of both hands (a football player can now be eliminated)

    Hint #3: He has made the playoffs

    unrelated hint: I'm shipping east, or really, really west

    hint 4: He was a first round draft pick

    Hint #5: He played college ball at a “power 5” conference school

    hint 6: He has played for a team that has won at least one super bowl. I can’t remember if he was on that team or not. I’m getting old.

    Hint #7: He did make the pro bowl in his career

    hint 8: [​IMG]

    Hint #9: I know this isn’t a football hint, but Jabari Parker flashed so much potential.

    hint 10: my favorite football team plays in a South division in the NFL

    Hint #11: I’m hoping my favorite football team takes a serious look at Tua next year. Not sure if they have a franchise quarterback of the future in place yet.

    hint 12:
    [​IMG]

    Hint #13: back to the original football player i was thinking of...I'd like to think he'd be a popular choice in Japan

    hint 14: the number of times he was selected to the pro bowl = the # pick he was drafted

    Hint #15: unrelated to the football player hint - I’ve been to one target’s state but not the other.

    hint 16: Either I have sent or received or exchanged beer with one target before, but not the other.

    Hint #17: hints 9 and 13 go together, hints 10-12 refer to a team, and hints 1-8,14 refer to a player

    hint 18: the sum of the digits of the football player's jersey on the team that i have been referencing is 16

    Guess today was Shooter McGavin day! Mine had a leaky seal (thankfully @Vidblain bagged it up real nice so the beer was contained) so I had to drink it fast. Delicious beer and Citra is pretty much my favorite hop. This glass is fucking awesome, I'm gonna push to get some made at work! Thanks Chris!

    Your rant rings true. Two years ago, I managed to stand in a 30 minute line for the weekly release of Veil cans. It was not too bad because there was usually someone in front of me or behind me from out of town (mostly out of state) so I had the chance to yak with them about the brewery scene. Once, I stood in line at Triple Crossing for an hour in order to get some great release that week.

    Those days are gone. If I see a long line when I drive by a brewery I just turn around and go home. Maybe I am just getting too old but my consolation is I stop on my way home and fill a growler (an essential tool to keep in your car) at Growlers To Go. They always have an awesome selection of beers on draft.

    It seems we are a lot alike. My condolences!

    Hint #9- one of my targets has been more active than the other in this thread by an order of magnitude. If I've counted correctly, at the moment the number of posts by the more active target can be divisible by the number of posts by the less active target and result in a whole number.

    I agree with you about Triple Crossing (TC) IPAs. Almost all I have had, and I have had a lot, were really good. It may sound like heresy, but I will take my chances with a new TC IPA release then I would with a new Veil IPA release.

    Other than a few weeks ago when they held anniversary events, i usually do not have to wait more than ten minutes.

    Keep me in mind in the event you would like some of their IPAs.

    Anyone in this group planning on going to Bark Lord Day at Transient on Sunday? I am itching for a bottle of Cantuckley, but I don' t think my buddy will be able to sweet talk his wife into making the detour on the way home from Dark Lord, after being our DD for a couple of days. If anyone is able and willing to work out a trade, please let me know.
