    I love @Joenap419’s bipolar participation in every round. Manic excitement only to be dashed into deep, deep sorrow. Then suddenly excited again when he receives his box. I look forward to it every time!

    Got a couple of different Newbie boxes I have been needing to post:

    First up was an offered from @MTKATL to hook up someone who had never had Mexican Cake
    [​IMG]
    Not only does he send the Cake (a big time want), but Mike sends a bunch of beers he knows I am addicted to. Thanks for the generosity Mike.

    Also received a pick-up box for @max13 and @Satch44:

    These guys used some of their Transient allotment to hook a guy up. Plus @max13 threw in a couple of delicious fresh extras. Thanks Dave and Ryan.

    Now back to the regularly scheduled 6 days BIF. My box landed about an hour after I posted my fifth wrong guess in this thread. Thankfully @Burrass box landing today will keep me from a sixth wrong guess.

    First off, I love the coloring of the wrapping here, feels like Christmas all over.
    Second, I think my liver is in trouble. these bottle have the look of some high abv'ers.
    Matt also sent along a 16 and 17 KBS (both years I really enjoyed) and some nice glassware to boot. I'm thinking that glass on the right might come in handy soon. Thanks Matt and I can't wait for Sunday to kick this bad boy off.

    I’ve been hit! I’m out of town for work but my wife was nice enough to unpack the box and get these beers in the fridge. My porch was absolutely demolished by @Sturgeon83!
    [​IMG] What we have here is six days with a day two that is guaranteed to keep me from working out that next morning. In addition some great IPAs that I am excited to try including Bearded Iris Homestyle, Mile Wide Tuck Rule, HH Everybody Wants Some ___, Boss Tweed, and Galaxy Cutting Tiles!

    I’ve been warned that there will be lots of Stouts but I think I’m ready! Can’t wait to get into these beers! Thanks @Sturgeon83

    Damn, @MTKATL just blew up my porch this morning. First, he decided to send two boxes:

    Here is the full shot:

    This is way to kind, some awesome new ticks in there as well. If these are the extras, I cant imagine what is wrapped up.

    Thanks again.

    Thanks @HeartofMiami! I think I'm in for a good 6 days. 3 cans on day 6 and you did say BA stout vertical so I'm worried about day 6.

    Came home last night to a demolished porch courtesy of @Eziel. EZ is a MADMAN! First up are the wrapped bootles.
    [​IMG]
    Looks like I'm doubled up on a couple of days with another bottle labeled "any day." As well as a 50th bday bottle. Not sure I can wait 10 years to see what it is?

    Extras. All the Jackie O's! Way too generous my friend.

    @azuelke decided I didn’t have enough beer because I was out f he country for two weeks, so he dropped this on me yesterday:

    [​IMG]

    The 3 Sheeps he proxied from the latest barrel society released, but threw in a nice 1840 sampler including #pgw. I’m looking forward to trying these after hearing good things.

    But that’s not all. There was an oddly shaped item wrapped in foil, and it turned out to be...

    [​IMG]

    ...Drunken biscuits. This was packed with ice packs and actually showed up cold (as if there wasn’t enough sodium to preserve this stuff anyways). I already consumed for lunch and it was delicious despite the not-so-great appearance.

    And the extras:

    Some nice looking extras here, especially looking forward to trying some Hudson Valley (with rad HV glassware and a sticker with the same design I forgot to picture) and that OH/Barrier stout as well. Thanks Dustyn!

    Get the app called Imgur, that’s what I use. Upload pictures or gifs on there, then copy the link onto BA.

    I was indeed thumped by @kbergen28 and it looks like a fun box. Some stuff in there from his trip to Spain, some interesting collage art on the wrapped bottles, a tasty NG beverage that my CraftWife already gobbled up! Cheers

    @Bstagnone I am putting another box together for you. I regret that the following beers will not make it into this box because I do not have another to replace them. ArcLight black raspberry
    Bells batch 9000
    Transient rum jumblie buckley
    Transient Canuckley.
    I hope the beers I have chose to replace what you didn't get are satisfactory. I really wish you could have had some of the other beers

    Well @rspauldi... you weren't on my radar at all! I still had a few to check off, but had eliminated you after your first post. I remember reading your hint about untappd, and saying to myself, "man that sounds like me".
    But your TWO boxes made it safely to sunny SoFla, and my wife was somehow able to drag them inside by herself. Pics manana when I get home from the station. Thanks so much dude! Really looking forward to Sunday.
    Cheers!!!!

    Cheers dude. I saw where you were getting back into the gym so I figured the t-shirt was appropriate. The bottle for your 50th can be opened now - just don't drink it! I'm confident it will age well.
