    Be home! Call in sick! Do whatever you need to do to be there to sign!

    I am sick but sadly calling in sick today is not an option (which SUCKS). Finals week is next week and we are required to hold extra office hours for our students. Blehhhh

    Can they be virtual hours? Do a Google Hangout or something!

    I'm gonna leave a note to see if they will let my neighbor who I trust sign for it.

    Sorry for messing around with you, but you are not my target. :( It was just too convenient the similarities you and my target had.

    so for more stalker hints. My target was married 7 days before me.

    Wait a second.....are you my sender?! I think I had you on my potential sender list but then I eliminated you based on a previous hint. Man, I really need to redo the list again.

    Supposedly I have a second box landing today. However, I did not receive tracking information, so I cannot be certain. Needless to say, this day is dragging!

    When I thought my box was coming from CA, I thought grrrah was my sender. But it turns out that box was actually just a Ray Ban order I forgot about. So... back to roughly 34 potential senders. 24 pages seems overwhelming to go through.

    My target's username starts with a letter between K and S. Also, I'll probably be shipping on the 14th... sorry for the hold up.

    They didn't even go to my door. Instead they went to the leasing office .5mile away and was like "here ya go" and lucky they know me well since NYers in the south are very close and she put it aside for me.


    It's safe and there will be pron in about an hour!

    We brought the baby home today and I threw out my back lugging in a porch bomb from Illinois. My house is madness with in-laws and a new baby. Pics of this incredible haul coming as soon as things slow down a little

    Just a quick check-in as I have to go to another local brewery release.

    I came home to an impassable porch that has been totally crushed. I had two trade boxes stacked in front of my door as well as two HUGE boxes from @bcm75 weighing in at 50lbs. Holy crap! I brought them all inside and they will be opened later tonight with pics to be posted.

    Now that all the heavy lifting is done (and i have a hernia), time for a Gingerbread Ale being released at Rapp Brewing Co. I just might get a growler for my Target.... not sure if he likes Gingerbread or not?

    So just got home from work and was doing dishes. Well I hear a loud thud from the front of the house......couple sec pause.....then the doorbell rings and I see a young looking FedEx guy running away. Got excited and pissed at the same time. Its like he chucked it at the porch or something, doesn't he know there is good beer in there!!! Anyways end of my rant. 2 boxes showed up I am assuming from wiltznuks since the box is from Florida and has the same last name. For some reason I had you crossed off my list hmmmm all well. Gonna clean up, crack a beer and do some unpacking. Maybe I'll include a little friday beer porn for your viewing pleasure.

    Some great bottles there, but I'm betting the Sam Smith steals some of the limelight from the big boys--it is surprisingly good!!

    It was @grrrah ! Haha, my hunch was right... although for the completely wrong reasons. I'm blown away by the contents of this one...really, really excited. I'm not posting a picture yet because there's apparently another box coming, and I'll wait for the pictures until then. I had to do a double-take on that note to confirm there was still another box... really couldn't believe that after seeing this one. Amazing. Stay tuned...

    Glad you liked the box. Was able to hit a few of your non-stout wants, but resulted in coming under the stout minimum ;) . Next box will have to meet the min-stout requirements. I still have a few of your wants for you :) It will likely land within the shipping window so, since we are following the rules now.

    Glad it got there and you liked it! Couldn't figure out what you had/wanted so I just went shotgun style and sent everything hoping to hit a few wants.

    And @zekeman17 is right, I always love a bottle of Sam Smiths. It's like drinking YooHoo with a hint of alcohol in it. One of my favorites.

    wiltznucs totally crushed it. These boxes are awesome! So much new stuff to try over the holiday.....Well every evening till the new year more like it.

    Started off by cracking open a Bells berlinerweisse to aid it the un packing of all these dark awesome brews.

    [​IMG]

    Opened the small box and a ton of small bottles all held perfectly in place (I am sure the delivery man is disappointed)

    [​IMG]

    I really enjoy small format because I can taste more stuff when it's just me and not worry about finishing a bomber.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The only ones I have had are the tenfidy and the bcbs but who wouldnt want more of those. So pumped to try these, moo-hoo, the java stout, peruvian, the geuze, heck all these I cant wait to try. Honetly I would of been really happy with just this box. But the big bottles are still there.

    [​IMG]

    I have never had anything from Cigar City yet, and now I get to try these ones. Going to a bottle share next week I think the Marshal will steal the show. And the choklat has been a big want. Seriously though I think everything you sent could be on my wants list. Thanks wilkz I am now set for the holidays. I really appreciate it.

    wiltznucs Jun 27, 2013 Florida

    I'm glad you liked it. I figured since you were way outside my distro range I'd try to load you up with as many small format stouts as I could instead of mostly bombers. There's lots of cool East Coast brews in addition to the CCB stuff. Marshal Zhukov and the Humidor Stout are amazing but the Boris, Doris, Peruvian and Choklat are fantastic too. The Pinstripe is from a very small brewery in Alabama and the Jeff Stout from Mississippi. The Bells stuff is always nice and Founders, BCBS and a year old TenFidy are always welcome in my place.

    You had the Geuze and WO Jai Alai in your wants so I figured what the hell and threw them in. I'd drink the WO Jai Alai soon, it's got a few weeks on it now but I held it for the BIF.

    The Marshal is among CCB's best in my opinion. If you haven't had CCB before the Zhukov is one hell of a start.

    Cheers!

    You definitely did me right. I have one bottle of the Doris and the Boris but I was saving them for something, not sure what but something. But now that you sent them I have an excuse to crack them open and see what the hoppin frog hype is about. I have never tried anything from Brooklyn Brewery even though I have read his books and the choco stout is the one I would have chosen. The Jeff stout sounds good, I have had two similar ones before and did not like one but loved the other, so I have high hopes for this. Thanks again!!!!
