    The NEW YORK Jets and the NEW YORK Football Giants? What about them?

    You left out MLS. The Red Bulls play in NJ too.

    Up next. Smell was maybe a coffee stout. Flavor is all sour. Dark stout with cherries maybe.

    Sean @y2kawakami has been a busy boy... today it was my turn. This box (a thank you for a Funk Factory GPIUFMB from a few months back) is a great example of why Savages are the best. I always see a bunch of FW boxed beers floating around, never had one, always wanted one, but never had it mentioned as a want anywhere. Sean takes the time to figure out that I haven't had any and then hits me
    [​IMG]
    blind chug (of course) 22 Anni, 19 Parabola & 19 Sucaba, Waikiki Brewing black strap molasses porter and aloha spirit blonde, Honolulu Brewing surf session IPA and Golden Road mango cart mango wheat and chocolate covered macadamias. The 3 women of the house crushed these chocolate immediately, only saved me 3. And I'm convinced they would not have saved me a single one as that is how they operate but I was like WTF and then all were like don't tell us you have them if you don't want us to eat them. They were great.
    Many thanks Sean, this is an awesome treat. So generous. I am stocked well for the lake. Gonna drink these cans on the waters of the great northwoods and maybe get into a FW or 2 also. I would tell you they are chilling but the main house fridge is all fucky suddenly so the beer fridge is full of food. Hopefully I fixed it but thats what I thought at noon and its still not cold.
    Cheers bud!

    It looks like I'm not immune from strikes, whether known or unknown. First, the box I didn't see coming, from @brutalfarce

    [​IMG]

    Treehouse and Other Half, a pair among my favorite east coast breweries! Really stoked to get into these beers soon; they be chillin. I really appreciate it and I will return the packing supplies to you at some point.

    Then, the box I was aware of, that never seemed to end, from @FlintB . I send a small box of barleywine and locals and he crushes me

    [​IMG]

    Awesome sounding No Rules, some IPAs from Homes, fruited seltzers from Speciation, fruited sours from Speciation and Homes. My first Rake beer I think? Thank you so much Brian. I'll save your packing material to return to you too, hopefully with some poke hidden among the beers.

    My wife is finally coming around to this. First comes the look of disappointment when she sees the boxes on our porch; then the mood switches when she sees beers she's gonna half with me. Thanks again Brian and William

    targets like sours
    you identify as male
    no handshake ticks
    one target has been on BA longer than me (X), one has not (Y)
    Received beer from one target (X), not the other (Y)
    Have been in BIFs with both targets before
    I could drive to either target in 24 hours, but not both in the same 24 hours
    I have been to both targets states
    Neither target has chickens
    Neither target wears a size Large shirt
    Both targets north
    Both targets live in a state that houses a team of one of the four major sports leagues

    Hint #1- I have not chugged a beer / setup multiple hostess displays / left a picture of Wilfred Brimley on either of my targets porches
    Hint #2- I have either sent and/or been sent beer by one of my targets before (target X). The other I have not (target Y)
    Hint #3- I have not met either of my targets in a parking lot during quarantine to do a beer swap where a dog tagged along
    Hint #4- I have not had a beer (or more) in either of my targets kitchen
    Hint #5- neither one of my targets was with me the last time I had a beer in a brewery before the shutdown
    Hint #6- as of 12:30 PM on Monday the 22nd one of my targets has put in a guess in the LIF Jason and I are doing (target X) and one has not (target Y) (55% of you have guessed). The target who made a guess has been more active than the other target on this thread. The LIF does hit the style preferences of the non guessing target pretty well so I'm expecting a guess to be made before the deadline
    Hint #7- Shipping UPS ground will take 2 days longer for one target (X) than the other for my boxes (target Y)
    Hint #8- I have had a BA beer mail conversation with one of my targets (X) but not the other (Y)
    Hints #9-13 were gifs giving target Y some shit
    Hint #14- I bought the wife a used car this weekend. One of may targets has an automotive assembly plant in their state (Y) the other does not (X)
    Hint #15- my alma matter Wisconsin has more wins over the last 10 years than a pretty high profile college football team in target Y's state

    Haul hint. I am waiting for the drops of 2 beers. One of them rhymes with rawberry stubarb. The other was put in a barrel that previously held the 2nd most popular drink in Wisco (beer is first)*. Your patience will be rewarded

    * probably, not taking the time to look this up or anything
