5 days old? Already spoiled
Here is what we have so far for guesses for the LIF:
I'm sticking to 4 vessels, but you will be getting about 100 ounces of great July 4th beers. I wanted to add a few more Independence Day favorites to the box, but the burgers and dogs probably wouldn't survive the trip. I do think I have a few holiday items to add that you are legally prohibited from purchasing in your state. Box will get dropped off tomorrow, and you will have it by Thursday the 3rd.
Edit: Ima go with 37 not 3.
hey there buddy, whats your story?
Work work work. And am best man in a wedding tomorrow so I've been running around. Jim sent me some awesome gose I'm cracking tomorrow and got a keg of Nebco sea hag for the wedding,.....wooo

As I sit here drinking a Black Chocolate Stout from 2009, I'm feeling contemplative about the fact that when this beer was brewed I had only been married a year and a half, and in my house for a year. I didn't have any kids yet and the wife and I were just starting to talk about trying. At the time I was still working my first job out of college, with no particular direction toward anything longterm. I considered myself a beer nerd because I didn't drink BMC, but preferred locals. I think I'd had a saison or two by that point, and I knew that a shaker pint was not always the right choice of glassware... but I still hated IPAs and my experience with stouts ended with Irish ones.
I guess really I'm contemplative about turning 30 in a couple weeks, and I'm taking it out on this beer... I suppose worse emotions have been taken out on a beer so I shouldn't worry too much about it.
i'ma throw my hat in at 52:00
For reference if a regional SWTFYW share happens at my place, this is a mediocre precursor to what would happen....
Yes, I'm offering up Lexington KY as a destination
Apparently my 1 week old doesn't know what sleep is...
I've heard really good stuff about Le Sarrasin, when you crack one I'd love to hear your thoughts.
A Patriot Missile from @phishbfm landed all over my porch yesterday. The goods:
The Wicked Weeds:
growler = Tyrant
But wait....there's more:
B-Mac - you f'ing killed it. Really looking forward to digging into this latest bomb.
Didn't mean to steal your thunder here....blame @phishbfm
Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!
Fucking young people....
^^^what he said
As an over 30er, I can tell you this. Fuck numbers. 30 merely represents time your feet have been planted on Mother Earth. My wife was the same way with turning 30. I told here the same thing I'll say here. Who cares? How do you feel, how old do you act? Why should some number scare you?
I myself can say this. I act like a kid, my mind stopped developing around age 16. I still do stupid shit I'm not supposed to. And you know what? Most importantly I smile. I smile because every day I get up and can take a breath of fresh air. There are others I have known that can no longer do that. So enjoy the milestone that is 30. Act like a child. Be a fool. Don't get caught up in numbers......unless of course your @mborden who clearly said fuck the numerical system. He clearly followed the above advise
Enjoy life brotha. Everyday above ground where you can place a beer in your hand is a great day.
Didn't you see my hint 5? I sent 92 oz of beer for this BIF, 3 bottles and a can. The other cans were part of my @ThreeFishes Heady LIF, but I was just too cheap to send it in two boxes.
I wasn't picking at ya. Was more of a gentle rouse. Cheers sir!
That was really my bad. I was too lazy to set up a pic with just the one can for this thread, and another of just the three cans which were for a totally different thing altogether. Sorry @mborden.
No need to be sorry. I didn't mean to start a storm. I was just doing what I do best....poking the bear ! (Hence my comment about doing stupid shit)
As they say---growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional
Reminds me of my father-in-law's response to getting old: It beats the alternative.
I'll jump on whatever list is going around. Am I #42?
Enjoy! Glad it all made it more or less. It definitely looked like the growler leaked a bit...I got find better caps or something! That SN was the first stuff cranked out of their NC facility and is not going nation-wide...I felt obligated to share!
Love the advice, but I didn't say I was depressed about it, just contemplative. I've got my wife and my 3 boys (if you include the furry one that is my avatar) and as much as some days I might like to, I wouldn't trade any of it for the freedom of being unencumbered by these things.
Including my guy outside this thread, you're #4 (I think, correct me if I'm wrong). As long as the limit doesn't drop from 6 (and as long as I get there early enough to get any before I have to be home), I can take care of all 4 of you; or I'll let @zekeman17 take over one or two, we'll figure it out when we see who was able to get what.
Penalty: CCB 5 Beers for 5 Years Tangerine Berliner for everyone.
I wish they would make more.
Do they ever go and reproduce any of those one-offs? For all the bourbon barreled and imperial everything I've had this year, that tangerine Berliner was one of the most enjoyable experiences.
WICKED WEED LIF:
I like jokes. Three standard framework jokes in particular.
1) a ______ walks into a bar, bartender says...
2) how many _____s does it take to change a lightbulb?
3) why did ____ cross the road?
I leave asheville tomorrow and need until Monday at 5:00 to pack a box. That box will be shipped to the person who tells the best joke via any of the frameworks above. If there is another typical framework, I'll consider it.
Seven blondes walk into a bar. I swear to god I thought one of them would have seen it.
Setting the bar high from the outset. That said, I have a feeling that @TheBeerAlmanac will run away with this one.
