    Saw the Grove City, OH FedEx Facility (my cities FedEx Facility) and immediately got excited until I realized it was just a pit stop :slight_frown:

    Oh well, one person to eliminate as a potential sender!

    Another hint...

    Just got back from Night Shift. They make some tasty berliners. I had Art #5 at night of the funk last night...and that's definitely not one of their tasty ones. My target may have some of their beers on their wants list, but they don't have the Berliner that they had in bottles to go. That's a shame, because more for me.

    I got home to find that one hell of a sour bomb had arrived for me. It has been one hell of a long day so I'll get the haul posted tomorrow

    Also, sending bottles that dont fit the styles or a Wants is illegal. Send a similar box to me for further evaluation in determining your punishment.

    For whatever it's worth, the Yeti was on his Wants. Anything else was just to fill empty spots (which were limited). What can I say, I like extras.

    I have barrel-aged yeti on my wants, oak-aged is actually a different beer. However, it happens to be a delicious beer so I have absolutely no problem drinking again

    Hint #5 My target also doesn't have many Wants that are local to me.

    Next week I am heading on a beer run to one of the best beer stops on the eastern coast (Stateline Liquors on Delaware/MD border). I plan to get as many Sours as possible to crush my target.

    I also am hoping to score some vintage sours at my local shop tomorrow!

    Kwaide Initiate (87) Jul 11, 2012 Virginia

    Note to my sender. I may not have all Berliner wants in my list but if its a local one that doesn't see distro in my area then I want it.

    I am not a stout person, let alone a RIS but this one was definitely solid and better than BA Boris. I believe it was brewery only release...one of the trappings of my job. I was 'forced' to go to dinner at Fat Heads in Cleveland on monday night....woe is me.
