    This is an absolutely insane box from funkyaudio. Every time I think the bar on the amazingly generous boxes people send can't get raised any higher, it keeps doing exactly that.

    Here's the haul:

    [​IMG]

    Half Acre T-Shirt (now nobody has to see this BA naked!)
    Pipeworks Ninja vs. Unicorn (I know nothing about this beer or about Pipeworks. But I am ridiculously excited for it--check out the f'ing name!!!!!)
    Cantillon Classic Geuze (2011. HUGE Want, and I am stoked.)
    Cuvee Des Jacobins Rouge (Another big Want!)
    Deschutes Obsidian Stout (Want!)
    New Glarus Barleywine (Want--I love NG, and I haven't had a chance to try their BW yet. Sweet!)
    Half Acre Mug (AWESOME)
    Half Acre Sanguis (This looks really cool, and I doubt Half Acre could make a sub-awesome beer.)
    Dark Lord (2012. Yep. My first motherf'ing DARK LORD. No words.)
    The growler is Daisy Cutter. Daisy Cutter is such a perma-Want that it's one of about six things I have listed as perma-Wants on my profile. Already in the fridge... I don't like its chances of making it through the next 24 hours without getting emptied. It also came in a kickass growler shipper that will be turned around and sent to my target pretty soon.

    Closeup of the mug:

    Dude. James, this box was completely out of control. If your sender doesn't hook you up, I will personally drive my entire cellar to Chicago and leave it on your porch. And if there's anything you're ever looking for from the northeast, you know where to find me. THANK YOU!

    I think I need to go lie down.

    My targets shirt is en route to me, will require further assembly to achieve proper "badassery". Half a box of wants picked up and more shopping maybe later today depending how my saison brew day goes.
    My box is heading in 2 directions: South and East. Just have to wonder how far on either.

    My target has been on BA today and hasn't posted his haul. I didn't think it was that bad of a box. Guess he thought differently?

    I am at a local watering hole picking up a growler today. My box will travel west sometime this week. I still have to make the exchange for the King Henry sometime this week (I was in the hospital last week, so that got delayed). This box is going to basically roundhouse-kick my target in the teeth. I have seen the boxes he sends and this guy deserves a great box!

    Just be sure to replace the football with the growler included in your box!

    That would really make the picture pop! Maybe you can enter it into the LIF for the best beer pic too?

    Man, that little joke really struck a nerve huh? Not only did you mention it in a BM, but in the thread afterwards as well.
    Glad you like the contents of the box. :) With the excellent distribution to PA (and lack of to my city) it wasn't easy to put together a box that you couldnt easily obtain.

    If the box travels far enough west it will eventually land at my place.

    Well my box landed last week, hopefully my shipper has gotten the ok to ship as I am/was provisional.

    seriously. having the same problem in the pimp cup bif. nobody on BA cares about your flabby abs. Lets see those pics! (how else are we supposed to make fun of you behind your back?)

    WitteBanter Nov 9, 2011 Massachusetts

    Just to clarify- this is a pic with the t-shirt on, right? Unless you receive a belly t-shirt or 1980's high school football warm up shirt (which would be awesome!), no one's seeing any flabby abs anyway. Throw on a bro, manzeer, girdle- whatever underneath if that's what's holding you back!
     
  30. BigGene

    BigGene Oct 30, 2010 Florida

    well you can put up a pic of the shirt off if you like. Dont think anyone will complain

    You heard him hophead101. He wants to see you with your shirt off.

    man, step up, please adhere to the rules. Yeah, the rule was set after. But if you expect WitteBanter to show off the girls, show off your man cans and go on with it. Take one for the team. My pic will be epic, because the shirt probably wont be over my head.
     
  33. WitteBanter

    WitteBanter Nov 9, 2011 Massachusetts

    Haha- I think we all have a high bar to set with biglobo's pic- I'm assuming that's you in the avatar? I'm just glad you're finally getting a new t-shirt, and hopefully something better than Coors light!

    Btw- man cans- love it!
     
  34. sliverX

    sliverX Oct 5, 2007 S. Georgia & S. Sandwich Isls.

    222oz and I have to get a growler yet. Shirt looks awesome. Was leaning towards this for the growler just for the name.
     
  35. glitchedmind

    glitchedmind May 8, 2012 California

    Sometimes, I'm quite partial to coors light. And one of the times is when I see biglobo's avatar.
    Since I'm not entirely shy in front, nor behind a camera, I'm pretty sure I'll come up with something clever showing off my man hide cover.
     
  36. baconsausage

    baconsausage Jun 28, 2010 Vermont

    I wish I could "dislike" that coors comment.... At least the part about liking it.
     
  37. glitchedmind

    glitchedmind May 8, 2012 California

    I should clarify...I'm by no means partial to it when it comes to consuming to it.
    Killing weeds around my roses though? Yes.

    fit or not i will deff post a pic of me wearing the shirt

    I will be sending multiple shirts. Better get creative with your pic, target X

    Box is coming together nicely. Plan to fill the growler on Sunday on my way home from camping and will ship on Monday.
