    Here are the details:

    • 144 oz minimum
    • Beers must be listed on Beer Advocate as a Stout, American Stout, Russian Imperial Stout, etc..
    • Beers must have a minimum rating on Beer Advocate of 90 or higher.
    • Try to hit wants if possible, or beers that otherwise may not be available to your target(seekabrew.com)
    • Noobs are welcomed but will be required to ship out one week earlier than everyone else & may require a sponsor
    Looking at a March 18-28 shipping window, giving a little bit over a month to gather beer

    Hmmm, I think I'm ready to ship! It looks like my target and I share similar taste profiles.

    Hint: An NFL team in my targets state drafted a player from my undergrad alma mater last year. It was a bad year to be drafted as he wasn't in discussions for Rookie of the Year but he immediately made a huge impact on that teams performance overall...

    I think I am a fan of the NFL team that drafted the player from your undergrad alma mater... can't call it a "hint" as there is nothing on my profile that would give away who my favorite NFL team is.

    Hint 1: if i started out on a highway in my home state and drove in the direction of my target i would end up in a town 197 miles west and... by googles driving speeds(an amusing thought since in the targets state going 65 or 70 is damn slow) 2 hours and 51 min later i'd be in the targets city

    Interesting! Since you chimed in regarding the hint, I guess I'll add that I did not go to undergrad in Michigan...

    Cheers!

    A lot of my target's wants are not walez, but good, solid beers I enjoy regularly. I also have five of his almost-wants (non-barreled or different variants).

    I've got quite a few things together for my target, including some non-stout items that will obviously be extras. One of the planned bottles doesn't release until March 9th though! lol...

    For clarification, we've played in IL, WI, OH, MN, UT, NY, CA, and MI. Oh, and Toronto, but I don't think that rules anyone out here. I think that's the full list of states we've played in. Note we drove to all but two of these states.

    I grudgingly clicked "like" since I am not your target.
