    This BIF is the gift that keeps on giving!
    Just found a big ole box on my porch from @LloydDobler

    I would like to add that I just recently opened a beer from the ninja box that @FlintB sent me as a result of @LloydDobler asking that his winning LIF box be forwarded to me. I drank all the IPAs or gave them to my dad or shared them with my dad awhile ago, but the stouts had not been completely consumed. Only one (the flying buffalo that I posted on NBS many moons ago) had. A few days ago I consumed the Delusion that I was sent, and it was quite good! Haven't had a chance to upload pics, however.

    Thanks again @FlintB !

    That showed up early! I wasn’t expecting it to land until Monday. I tried to mix it up a little so you wouldn’t get bored. Enjoy the brews, I owed you.

    Definitely a great mix! I’ll enjoy. Not sure I buy the “owed” statement. Maybe we’ll see what happens next round...:thinking_face:

    Out of curiosity - since some of you have been through this so many times in the fall. Would mid October be the start or ship?

    I have a few things going on mid October, and would actually be out of town (maybe country) for about a week mid October as well. Trying to not get too excited if I may not be able to participate :slight_smile:

    You can always ship out early, if that is the case. I wouldn’t worry too much about shipping on a specific date. I’m pretty sure that the beer gods are fairly lenient.

    What a great array of beers that were perfect for this hot sticky summer.
    Thank you sir.

    Well, I, for one, contributed to that because I got derailed by various tribulations after I had bought a last box's worth of mainly big bottles (don't worry, @oline73, I purged the items that would be less well aging). Otherwise my last box would've shipped MUCH sooner.

    Don't think I've had any of those, but I recognize enough of the breweries represented to see that there's nothing wrong with @LloydDobler's ninja game. Well done, sir!

    Damn this is the BIF that never ends, I got home from work today to find a box at the door. Could not really make out the address on the box but based on some of the beers and the state abbreviation of HI I am pretty sure I know who it was. I wonder if Fedex ground will travel over water?? Guess we will find out. You know who you are, really appreciate these great beers. All new for me and the Waikiki Brewing Company will be the first one I open!!

    Thank you @y2kawakami ! It's funny - Dan (@FFFjunkie ) and I were just talking about you a few days ago. I was planning on sending you a congratulations box here pretty soon - cheers, man! Expect some payback in a few weeks!

    Glad they arrived in one piece. I was fortunate enough to get that launched on the coolest couple of days we've had around here over the last couple weeks (case in point, it was 103° on my little hillside this late afternoon).

    Like @Mipper said, I’m retired. That, and I partied a little too hard last night and I don’t see beer in my foreseeable future. Save your beers for the next unfortunate soul.
