    - New Glarus R&D Bramble Berry Bourbon Barrel
    - New Glarus Thumbprint Scream IIPA
    - New Glarus Thumbprint Berliner Weisse
    - Bruery Oude Tart w/ Cherries
    - Bruery Tart of Darkness
    - Almanac Golden Gate Gose
    - Half Acre Ginger Twin
    - Guinness wall mount bottle opener

    These are all new beers for me, and awesome variety! Thank you for the killer box, your generosity is greatly appreciated.

    I got a box the other day from @dmbforever . Some of you might not be aware so quick backstory... an original shipper didn't come despite the efforts of @dannyfayy who tried to reach out multiple times and showed a lot of patience after being put in a spot he sholdn't have had to deal with. @dmbforever kindly offered to ship a box in his place and sent a really nice box full of greatness.

    The first beer I opened was a Duck Rabbit Milk Stout. It was something I had a few years before at one of the BA events and was actually wearing the T-shirt of that beer when I opened the box which was pretty cool!!!
    A Sexual Chocolate was a super sweet surprise! Something I've heard great things about and will be really excited to try. Thanks so much for the opportunity.
    3 different New Glarus beers were also included. Wisconsin Belgian Red, Raspberry Tart, and Serendipty. I am sad to say I haven't had a single NG beer yet but happy to say I will be getting to try 3! These look really nice!
    A 2014 Abyss from Deschutes. Another beer I've been wanting to try but haven't had the chance until now. So excited!
    A Cow Boss from CC. I really love Milk Stouts (hence the Duck Rabbit t-shirt among others) but know the Cow Boss is going to be a really nice drink some night in the not too distant future. Looking forward to that one for sure!
    And if that wasn't enough there was a Hunter Vanilla included too. I haven't been fortunate enough to try anything from Hunter either which makes this even more wonderful.

    What was even better than the beers sent though was the spirit that was shown. It is that spirit that makes BA such a cool place. Thanks again @dmbforever! Each of the beers you sent hit a home run but it was your generosity in the true spirit of BIF that really put a smile on my face.

    I know @dannyfayy has had a little difficulty with some shippers recently, but I want to take some time to acknowledge one of the awesome ones that blew me away today. @HoppySeb crushed my porch with this epic box!

    I'm pretty sure every one of these beers was on my Wants list and Seb crushed it with generosity!

    Thanks again Seb for the awesome box! This Hoponius Union is killer!

    Cheers

    Box from mike0802 arrived yesterday full of some North East shelf turds :wink:

    [​IMG]

    All new beers to me minus the Julius, which I love. Never heard of Rushing Duck Brewery so I'm excited to try War Elephant. I've had reg Fort Point as well as DDH & Galaxy Hopped. All 3 are world class and I'm sure that Mosaic Hopped FP will be a real treat. Cant wait try both Trillium beers and I'm absolutely frothing to try Green.

    Mike got the banhammer a while ago and still sent the box anyway. It would've been easy to just disappear without a trace but he still made good on his commitment to send. Classy move and thanks again to @dannyfayy for helping it along.

    Big thanks Mike if you are lurking. Killer box. Much appreciated bro, you made my day!!

    Both a BBA version and regular Sexual Chocolate! Awesome!!!
    Wicked Weed Freak of Nature IIPA. Can't wait to try this one!

    Kudos to @kevinrivers. I know he had some concerns over his participation here in this BIF and he sent some nice beers. Class move.

    Hey @bluemooncanyon where are you from? Sending out Pizza Boy means probably around me.

    Edit: I see you're from MD so never understand the question.

    @SP23 sorry man, I totally forgot to post the pic of your box to Ethan. I will post tomorrow.
    My make up box to Chris went out yesterday. And 1 more should be landing this week. After those 2, just 1 box remaining.

    Last box of the NFL Survivor winnings landed today from our esteemed commish, @dannyfayy. Dan stepped up to send this box to me when "jameson pa" went MIA. Super classy gesture and totally unnecessary but much appreciated.

    [​IMG]

    Hop Juju x2- Permawant. Had it once before on tap and loved it.
    Headhunter- Want!
    Nugget Nectar- Heard so many good things about this beer, cant wait to crack it.
    Jackie Os BA Dark Apparition- My 1st Jackie O's beer. Looks amazing!
    Weyerbacher Sunday Morning Stout- Once again, new beer/new brewery. Stoked!
    Voodoo Good Vibes- New beer/brewery.. Yes Please.
    Big Black Voodoo Daddy- Love the name. New tick.
    And the mystery beer.... "Day 4". Hmmmm... What's the story here Dan? Are you my April Fools BIF sender???

    Dan absolutely crushed it with this box.. Huge, huge thanks for the incredible generosity. I hope you don't think that you can just get away with these shenanigans without retaliation. You are now firmly atop "the list" and much like your avatar, payback will come when you least expect it. Thanks again bro! Cheers!

    Haha... well long story, I had put together 6 days in addition to the Hoppy beers, so that you could participate with us. I told Dave. And he told me they figured out a way to squeeze you in. So, I didn't want everyone to get jealous that you got 12 beers and they only got 6. So I just left in days 4-6, but I guess I got lazy, and forgot to take the duct tape off day 4, haha. But that's why the BA dark app and SMS bottles look a little rough..
