    These hauls are insane. Can't wait for mine to come in. We are still sitting in the single digit temps here, perfect stout weather!

    I second that. He was 1 of the 2 possible senders I had narrowed it down to.

    Final Hint: my boxes will be shipping Monday, to a state which will put 2 teams into the round of 32 after tonight.

    I don't think any of the boxes have "sucked". Local character means a lot.

    I would have been perfectly happy with that box.

    It's more a comment on how everyone else is absolutely killing it in this BIF. You guys rule.

    I'm starting to think that your "my target has posted on this page hint" was wrong and boxes are coming my way :) Cheers Ray!

    I missed a lot of the baseball hints because I've only been here for 1.5 years... I am a bandwagon tigers fan though, no doubt about that

    My dad did pitch with Jack Morris in college though

    Jk, I just strongly dislike Jack Morris.

    Any particular reason? From the little I know, he was a pretty good pitcher for the Tigers for a long time...
     
  20. RayUF07

    RayUF07 Sep 22, 2012 Florida

    I'm not a Tigers fan. Grew up a Braves fan. Before the Rays, they were the closest team to me. I don't need to say much else.

    1991 MN Twins take down the Braves with a little help from Jack Morris. Great memories... beacause MN hasn't won a thing outside hockey since.

    I was raised a cub fan and still follow them (loosely) to this day. I don't have (too) much sympathy man... Cheers!

    You felt so bad I've followed the cubs my whole life you sent it out early? How nice of you!

    Did I mention how cool I think the Braves / Rays are ...

    Glad I shipped early. Car just died, and the "discretional budget" is about to take a serious hit.

    I got home a few minutes ago to a doorman grumbling about the enormous box he had to stash in our package room ... I have it upstairs now and started opening things before I was interrupted by dinner (the kids are impatient). So far I can report that everything got here safely, and even though I've only unwrapped about half the bottles, you already hit one of my top wants.

    Full report to come, as the half-unpacked box taunts me silently from the corner.

    Check out this haul! Big format:
    [​IMG]

    Lindley Park (one of my top wants!)
    Blue Mountain Barrel House Dark Hollow (new to me, looks great)
    Weyerbacher Tiny (one of only two beers in the box I've tried, and it was a long time ago, so looking forward to revisiting)
    Berkshire Brewing Russian Imperial Stout (new to me, looks great)
    Sexual Chocolate (mic drop)
    Olde Hickory Hickory Stick Stout (I've liked everything I've had from them)
    Ballast Point Victory at Sea (stout + coffee + vanilla = want)
    Evil Twin Imperial Biscotti Break (always welcome)

    Small format:
    [​IMG]

    Terrapin Moo-Hoo x2 (yes please)
    Terrapin Wake n Bake x2 (yes please)
    Duck-Rabbit Milk Stout x2 (I've heard great things)
    Sweetwater Happy Ending (new to me, looks great)

    This is a great combination of wants (including a top one!), beers I've heard great things about but never tried, and beers I've never heard of that look awesome. Thanks, Wolfpack2005! This is a great box and I'm psyched to be your target.

    Glad everything got there safe and sound. That Lindley Park is my favorite beer, OH knows how to do big beers. There was also a can of 21st Oyster Stout in the box. I didn't realize that you had access to Evil Twin till after I saw the box you sent, but figured it was such a stellar beer that you wouldn't mind another.

    Enjoy the beers!

    Haha, found it -- thanks for the heads up! The can is much smaller than all the bottles and took me a solid 20 seconds of digging to find. And yeah, always happy to have another beer that I like. It seems like Evil Twin distro is spotty here, as in you never know exactly which beers will be around.

    Great box! Victory at Sea (technically a Porter) is one of my favorites!

    That Dark Hollow was pretty damn tasty when I tried it a couple weeks ago same with Victory at Sea, can't wait for Ballast Point to come to MN in the summer. Had my first Imperial Biscotti Break yesterday and will now be adding it to my wants list. Great box Wolfpack!

    I picked up a few more beers for my target today. They have a limited distribution in one of the 3 areas they roam for this sweet nectar called beer, but they are not something he has rated in their many years on BA.
