    Sorry for the delay! Came home from a long trip to finally get a peak at what bauermj sent last week. Ask for wine barrel aged goodness, and Ye shall receive! The haul (weak photo... but it's the best I could muster before running out the door to work):

    That's a Jacky O's Cab Cherry Man, a Lost Abbey V009, and an Upright Late Harvest (batch 2). Yup, 3 tasty wine barrel aged brews, and a box that makes me very happy. Especially digging the Upright bottle... didn't think I'd see this one again. Upright can do little wrong in my book.

    Thanks Matt!

    Another case of Upright doing it right!

    This is what I came home to. Thanks to Olympuszymurgus for the great box!
    Upland Gilgamesh
    Jolly Pumpkin Cinco Anos
    Dark Horse 3 Guy Off the Scale Sour
    Home brew Flamders Red, Blueberry Lambic, and Peach Lambic.

    Looking forward to all of them, especially the home brews!

    Poor Panda no Pucker.

    Put one of those nasty sour gummie candies in your mouth and swish it around with some 1809 berliner wiesse.

    Seriously, if your jones let me know, I'll hook you up.;)

    This pisses me off, this guy gets hooked up with three nice bottles and then stiffs someone who sent out a great box too.

    One. I hear it's the loneliest number. At least that I've ever known.

    As soon as procure a box from our shipping room and put your beer in it, a box will be headed in your direction to help make up for getting stiffed.

    Randomdanger was my target and it kills me that he stole the beer I sent him and you never got a box. I wish my box had gone to you.

    Where you at in IL? I'd be happy to meet up, share a beer or two... Maybe take a bit off the loneliness, though 2 is only slightly less lonely than one.

    I'll take you up on that when I'm back in Chicago. Right now, I'm in Germany for work.

    There is a rumor of a box sent to me from a great BA...I will update when I have more info/verification.

    I sent a box to him at his US address that he confirmed receiving. Cascade Apricot and an Olde Hickory bA Seven Devils. Nothing crazy, I shot my load with the box I sent to randomdanger aka piece of shit.

    That was still great of you to send him those.

    I could get behind that :)

    ASUBeer sent me a thank you box for running the BIf. A good man. A true advocate.

    Sorry...haven't been around much the last 2 weeks. Yes, J-M sent me a great box, even though I told him it wasn't necessary. I appreciate the gesture. It wasn't right that I didn't get anything from someone that was supposed to send something, but I am not going to cry about it. Like I said in the other thread, my reason for joining was to make up a subpar box from last BIF--and I did that. You all can buy me and Angie a beer at Darkness Day in Oct.
