    my target's box is scheduled to arrive Thursday. i estimated the weight at 25 lbs, but FedEx decided it's actually 42 lbs. so, uh, yeah. handle with care.

    my target has been patiently waiting (even for just a hint) but will receive a box soon. it was pretty difficult to put one together due to my target's extensive hads list, but the box is now wrapped up and heading east.

    Just finished packing up my box...
    12 bottle shipper.
    1 750Ml Cantillon
    Multiple Crooked Stave Cellar Reserve Beers
    1 Hill Farmstead bottle which meets requirements of this BIF.
    A few other wants.

    I was trying to get a growler of a local-ish IPA that is on your wants, but failed. You have a lot of hoppy wants on your wants list, so I threw in a fresh IPA from the northeast. It wasn't on your wants, and is the complete opposite of style beers for this BIF, but if you like hoppy stuff, you'll be hoppy. If not, pretend you got an 11 bottle shipper instead of a 11 bottle +1 can shipper.

    I'll send tracking info to Merc before the end of the night. This puppy is heading to California tomorrow.

    My target's box is out. Half of the bottles in this box are NOT sours, but I can't help it if my target has a ton of NW beers that are different styles.

    One of the bottles in there, is one that I sent to Merc in the 2nd installment of the Sour BIF. Hope you like it :slight_smile:

    My target has a number in his BA username.

    My box will probably be last to land. My target is out of town til the middle of the 1st week in Nov. We've already discussed after chatting with Merc-edes.

    Glad you liked the box. Merc said that you don't eat meat, so I included some Japaneese cookies that my friend brought us from Japan. I think some of them are vanilla, and some are chocolate. Otherwise you would have gotten Jerky!

    Hope you enjoy!!

    Self-bump. Due to some...issues...with FedEx I had to iron out, I'm shipping UPS, so my target will have to wait an extra day or two.

    Ha! That was very thoughtful, and much appreciated! What Merc-edes didn't tell you is that I eat turkey and chicken, and love turkey jerkey! I'm sure you also see the Rueben dilemma. Anyway, the cookies are much appeciated. Thank you for a great box!

    Really just a stellar box! I'm stoked to finally try some stuff from Rivertown and always welcome back some old favorites. The homebrew sounds great, too.

    Thanks again jonallan, you nailed it!

    Glad everything made it ok. Stoked that you enjoyed the contents too. I really wasn't sure what was going to make it in your box after seeing all the beers you've had recently or already have acess to.

    Let me know about the homebrew. This was one another BA (Zapy) and I experimented with. It's definitely pineapple, but we blended it with a batch of the same base beer racked with kiwi.

    No worries. I have quite literally purchased about 4 or 5 Love Child No. 3 bottles this year because I really love it that much. Always welcome more of that. It really was a great box, so thanks again.

    I'll definitely send you a BM once the homebrew is cracked open. It sounds great!
