    Good guesses so far- but only one has been correct. Unfortunately I don't have any Dark Lord or Darkness to give away, otherwise they'd be in there.

    There are two bottles of something from Dark Horse in there as well.

    Hint #4: The final destination of my box will not be the great state of Minnesota. Sorry, roon.

    One of these will be included in my box. Hope the FedEx guy can carry it through all of the woods around its destination.

    Question: does the SWAG need to be stout related, or just something cool beer/brewery related?

    Sweet, I'm still in the running!!:) I have 75 acres of conservation land across the street from my house and like 15 acres behind

    Although GoogleMaps is incorrect. I've had several people get lost trying to find my house using google maps. They end up on the other side of town;) Google acknowledged maybe a year ago but has yet to change it:rolleyes:

    Is the red wax Eclipse Rebel Yell or Widmeir Chocolate Russian? I can't think of any others right now.

    I'm a sucker for a wax seal. I'll be including one I've never had in my box as an extra. Though it was Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout, it's really a Barleywine. Got excited and didn't read the label.

    It is not- actually the red wax isn't even a stout.

    The SWAG I sent wasn't stout related so I hope it doesn't have to be.

    already took a road trip to get to that brewery and don't have the time to make another before the shipping window...hopefully my target doesn't mind as much as others...I'm still new and didn't get the memo that pint glasses were a no no. I'll know for next time
