Welcome one and all to the latest iteration of the New Beer Sunday Beer It Forward (NBS BIF), the BIF that celebrates and encourages participation in the New Beer Weekend thread. This is your official Hints and Hauls thread!!! For this round, we have no official international, transcontinental, transoceanic, or female members. That's a shame, but then again, we had a number of ghost participants last round, as well as ghost ninjas (even spookier than regular ninjas!). You've all been called and summoned, weighed and approved. Most of you have crushed porches before. Most of you will do so again. Some of the damage may even go to your official target, but in my experience, we tend to have a rather lax collateral damage approval assessment process, so .... watch your porches, friends. This is the official Hints and Hauls thread. It's here! We're live! This is where you post your hints, pictures of your hauls, and - if enjoying a beer outside of the NBW time frame - drop a review. In the next post, I will go over the rules my partner @2beerdogs laid out in the sign up thread. Following that, I'll go with a quick roll call so you all know that this thread is live, baby! And before you ask: pairings are being confirmed today. I will personally BM you with your target, including their address, likes, dislikes, etc., either tonight, or tomorrow before noon at the latest. Important: if you have blackout dates, shipping notes/dates/restrictions, or changes to your shipping information, please shoot me and Derek a joint BM. I know a couple people may have already expressed specific requirements. Please back up my alcohol-soaked memory and just shoot us a fresh BM. Same if you aren't sure if we have your latest information, or if your opinion on some styles has changed. I keep everyone's information for future BIFs and for ninja requests, and I'd hate to pass outdated information to your sender. (You can trust me. I deliver sandwiches; I'm here to help (with your food cravings).) LET'S! DO! THIS!
