    My target's wants list is quite different from my own, but I'll do my best. I checked other wants lists to make sure this wasn't too obvious and there are some people I need to trade with.

    I think sender was trying to make a joke since we were led to believe there was a male Kelly in here.

    Ahh, ok. No, a female Kelly. That would've been confusing for some when the pics are posted.

    It's not the wisest of ideas to shop for a BIF after consuming copious amounts of Parabola "tastings". This box got significantly heavier.

    Hint #4 my target has a wide variety of styles in their has/had/wants which makes bottle choices easy. However, their state has nearly the same distribution as California, which makes it hard to choose bottles.

    Since there's delayed gratification going on all over this BIF- us anyone doing anything exciting this weekend? I'm going out on a limb that everyone here will be drinking something interesting...

    Hint #2:

    Six degress of separation hint:
    leschkie --> MarkIntihar --> Kaydogg --> Alewatcher --> ________ --> ________ --> target

    And in honour of the upcoming Memorial Day holiday, my target lives in a Union state or Union-controlled territory.

    I will be trekking down south the weekend after next to pick up some bottles and a growler that are on my target's wants list that isn't distro'd where I live (another hint maybe?), so most likely I will be sending out in ~2 weeks.

    Kern River Brewing for beer and dinner tonight, and then spending the next three days avoiding the work phone and doing as little as possible around the house (or until the tamed house dragon gives me a todo list).

    Starting here for lunch tomorrow and then drinking anything I want from his cellar (except three bottles he's hidden from us like a jerk) until we run out of beer/ die. Sunday-Monday will be spent in the country throwing sticks into the pond for the dogs to fight over. I need to find canned beers for that.

    I've got my shirt situation figured out, all I have to say is YOU better like 3 Floyds!

    Are you going to send out your box ahead of time, in case it's the latter option of "run out of beer/die"? You don't want to leave someone hanging.

    Being a previous participant in this great BIF, I feel kind of hurt that I was not notified of its renewal. But it does look like the MN BAs will absolutely kill it!

    I am soooo bummed..... At Cigar City today I got growlers for this BIF and a Gallon of FLorida Cracker white ale for myself. Well the all 4 32 oz growlers made it home safe. The Gallon broke/exploded now my truck smells like beer. Guess Im spending Sunday shampooing the rug in my truck. Dam it.

    Sorry BigGene, that's a bummer. However, I'm sure a cop would totally believe you when you say the smell of beer is from the Cigar City car freshener you bought.

    No worries. Actively looking how this turns out and looking forward to the next installment. I seldom look into trading threads anymore and I blame myself for missing this one.

    Thats not much of a hint. Considering nearly everyone who doesnt have a bottle already has it on their wants. ;)

    Hint #1: Assuming my target is a fan of his/her local MLB team, (s)he's having an unhappier baseball season than I am, at least to this point.

    This could be me...especially since die hard Sox fans don't even like them right now. I'm more of a football fan, but you can't deny a day at Fenway is a good time.

    I was all ready to send out a shipper of beer, with the growler and swag following shortly. I then noticed that my target is provisional, d'oh!

    please follow the guidelines set if your target is provisional. It seems like a pain in the ass, but it is a much needed tool to help introduce new BA's to the world of Bifdom. If you must send that growler out tomorrow, send it to me and I will send one back.
