    Yeah, those labels are tits. I feel a little sleepy with my hand written Avery mailing labels now.

    Glad you liked the box and thanks for all the comments on the labels. Hopefully you'll like the brews just as much. That Persica by the way is fantastic. It was a tough one to let go of for sure. Enjoy and let me know what you think of the homebrews.

    Came home late last night to a box from sdhomebrewer

    Heres the Haul:
    Alpine Ned
    Captain Lawrence Cuvée de castleton b5
    Russian River Framboise for a Cure

    And a glassware want of mine, Bruery tulip

    Thanks much man.

    There's a box waiting for me safely inside the homefront courtesy of bauermj (Matt). Won't be able to post details for a week and a half, but given that Matt traded Loons to acquire some wants, and then posted some freaky ass picture of a passed out clown in reference, I'm psyched (and scared all at once!) to find out what's in store! Sorry for the delay in posting!

    Updated: and I gotta mention that I was hoping Matt was my sender after reading about the wine barrel trifecta. Sounds like he went out of his way to hit my sweet spot, which I have to admit is hard to do.

    My box landed today in Minnesota. My target posted that he will be out of town so i sure hope that one of his roommates brought it in from the cold!

    My box is currently out for delivery in a city where it is currently a few degrees below freezing. My fingers are seriously crossed that the beer makes it intact, because I don't think I can replace that shit.

    Box has been delivered; I hope it's safely indoors.

    Wow. So, I opened the box and

    The haul:
    LA Cable Car '12 750ml
    RR Toronado 25th Anniversary 750ml
    RR Consecration batch 1 750ml
    [​IMG]

    Needless to say, you totally killed it! I'm pretty floored. All obvious wants and you even tied a vertical together with a batch 1 750ml. Cable Car '09 was my favorite wilds of all time, can't wait to see how CC '12 rounds out. And I was just getting ready to put out an ISO for T-25 so your mind reading powers are strong. Without a doubt I couldn't have asked for a better box from a San Francisco BA, and SF is one of my favorite beer cities.
    Thank you so much FunkyMacGroovin. I hope that my target enjoys his box & hopefully I get a chance to return the favor to you for a release or two in the future.

    Glad everything made it safe! I can't tell you how hard it was to part with the CC, but dammit I said I was in this BIF to win it, and I gave it my all. Enjoy the beers Matt!

    Meh. B-








    ;)



    Holy shit that is a great box. I suspected your proclamation of winning meant a Cable Car and you didn't disappoint. I bet you were sweating bullets watching the FedEx tracking and weather reports.

    California traders always send ridiculous boxes. So jealous of your beer.

    Hey guys and gals. I post with good and bad news.

    Bad first- I printed a label and placed my box on the porch for pickup on Thursday. Housemates brought it in thinking it was sent to me and I didn't find out until today. So to my target, I'll send it out today.

    The good- I got an awesome box. Bill, Spillybeers sent me a wicked box that I'm excited to start drinking.

    Cantillon Monk Cafe.
    Bullfrog Oud 15
    Tired Hands handfarm
    Ithaca LeBleu

    And a crazy sexy Tired Hands glass. I'll get pictures posted tonight. The bottles(except LeBleu) are all largely under my radar but as soon as I read about them I got more and more excited. A 1 of Loon? A sour quad on cherries? A wild 4 grain saison? Fuck. I'm stoked as all hell.

    A bunch of folks are waiting for BMs from me, I'll get to you tonight at the latest.

    Glad everything got there safe, I shipped them in a styrofoam cooler in order to keep the crazy weather out there away from the beers. Hope you enjoy, I personally love every single beer I sent. Oh and the 4th beer was a 'thanks' for running the bif.

    Cheers!
