    Another hint: I know what my target looks like, as there is a photo of him floating around the BA forum.

    Box #1 of a sour growler and extras is on its way to my target.. in a city sharing the name of a character in my favorite zombie movie. It should be landing tomorrow. I will have the rest of the sour goodness shipped probably Monday, maybe earlier if I get a chance.

    Since I still have 6 potential senders and none have posted since my last post, I guess I will be finding out who it is when and if it hits my porch.

    My target however will be getting some beers tomorrow somewhere in the midwest in a state that has a few very good hockey teams.

    i just got a box i was waiting for, so my target's box will go out tomorrow.

    Hint #1: My target lives in a state that produced at least three US presidents
    Hint #2: My target has been on BA longer than me, regularly updates his HADs, yet has fewer posts and likes
    Hint #3: My target has finally posted in this thread
    Hint #4: My target's metro area and state are known for their excellent versions of two of my favorite foods (pizza and wings)
    Hint #5: My target will be getting a brewery-only October-specific release that he has never had
    Hint #6: My target loves the type of beer i request people don't send me as extras
    Hint #7: This asshole lives on the beach and has no wants. Typical.

    Before you ask, it's Hoptart. And I was so excited about A new Pizza Boy wild that I completely forgot about your hop allergy. Not sure how sensitive you are, or how hoppy it is; but, to make up for that ill-conceived inclusion, I'm shipping out another box that includes at least another growler.

    We killed the growler of HopTart ShanePB sent a few weekends back. Definitely enjoyed it. Very unique.

    how does it compare in hoppiness to Le Terroir? i had one of those last night and thought it was great, solid hop aroma and flavor without being overpowering or taking away from the sourness.

    To my target, the brewery where I picked up a couple of bottles for you had an infection(only one batch). I'll be heading back to the brewery this week to exchange and will be picking up the bottle they're releasing tonight.

    Hint- you recently put out an Iso for one or more of these beers

    If that's true, I am mad jealous sir. I model my life after Bobby Lite. I would gladly accept a signed 3L Russian River bottle from those guys if you have one sitting around. Lol.

    They signed my tour credentials but while in LA I was staying at Twitch's place and got to chill with rob and big. Lots of liquor, a trip to a dispensery, and dirt bikes. Best days off I ever had.

    Well one box hasnt been updated for a few days - crossing fingers and the other looks to land tomorrow. then i saw this
    4:11 am
    Shipment exception
    KEASBEY, NJ

    Barcode label unreadable and replaced

    Wondering if this is why i cant get any updates. To my target - there should be two boxes - let me know if only one lands (btw i forgot to put my handle in the box - so look for something from CT and thats me)
     
  26. smonice

    smonice Initiate (0) Aug 10, 2012 New Jersey

    This is a sad hint for me because typically Keasbey is the last location before boxes show up on my doorstep but seeing your other clues, I know its not going to be on my porch tomorrow...

    Ha! I also forgot to include my name in the box that went out. That is the first time in many years that I forgot to! So if Saturday someone receives a box from Matt in CA... it is me.

    -BCBS '12 - Perma-want. The '12 reserves are low and I'm always happy to have more.

    -De Blaugies/Hill Farmstead La Vermontoise - wan..wait...not a want?! Should've definitely been a want! PUMPED!

    I am actually quite confused. Your wants in the allowable styles are all extremely hard to acquire or not around anymore and to be honest, if I received this box I would be extremely happy. Maybe they weren't whalezbro but your attitude and actual interest and involvement in this BIF are disappointing. If I did not meet any of the requirements, then please let me know and I will be more than willing to ensure I met them.

    Send that box over to me then! I would gladly try Love Child and Tilquin Gueuze, and return to 1809 BW and La Folie. Smonice is a really generous trader, and I think his boxes in several BIFs reflect that.
