    Just a friendly reminder as we approach the end of this BIF. Take some time to go back through the thread and see some fun beer and add them to your wants list. This will make it easier for your targets in future BIFs

    That's one of my favorite parts of a BIF. Along with searching for things to ship, anxiously awaiting my box, trying to figure out who my sender is and the general banter and jocularity of the hints & hauls thread.
    I guess the only thing I don't like is when it's all over.
    I guess I'm a BIF addict.

    Thanks everyone for the support, this was a great BIF community. Basic web site going up in the next week or so, www.blackholebeer.com and www.blackholebeercompany.com, Kickstarter will launch October 1st, and Facebook going up next week under same name.

    Look forward to these last boxes coming in but sad this thread will be ending soon, on to the next BIF, thanks Cuzco!

    I'd be up for it if the shipping window stretches out into mid October or so.
    Got a lot of going on already in Sept.
    If not, I'll catch round 3.

    If Nate doesn't want to, I was thinking I'd do it, with his input.

    Yes, PLEASE October. My wallet is sore and needs time to heal, but I'd totally be down for round two.

    Not technically a BIF box, but born from this BIF and is from a trade between Tertullian007 and myself for a 2010 Dissident and some locals, and I plan on riding this thread until the very end.

    Thought "Big Fancy Bottle Series" was really funny. Thanks man, cooling some of these down as we speak and can't wait to suck down some Missouri beer. Surprisingly only have had two of these before so am looking forward to trying some new stuff.

    Will do, excited to try it. I've got three bottles of Rumpkin coming in a few weeks also. As far as what we can get in AZ I think Epic Fermentation Without Representation is a great pumpkin beer and I really liked this years Rogue Farms Pumpkin Patch too.

    I'd be down as well...after some financial recovery.

    Can peeps put their T-shirt size on their profiles? Wanted to grab some gear, but didn't want to stick anyone with an unnecessary smedium T.

    BFBS is funny. I smile every time I see it. Which of these two have you had before? Just curious. That Roche 10 is the shit, as is the ABT 12. And that Saison-Britt is tough to match.

    I could also be in for round 2 of this if shipping is not until October at the earliest. I have another trade I need to get done in September as well as MMBrew's second box and then I have a regular trade box lined up for FfaC for October, and I just need to be sure that I don't overcommit.

    I'd also be happy to run round 2 if Nate doesn't want to, but it seems like there's no shortage of people willing to take on that work.

    I've had Racer 5 on draft and I lived in England for a short while so drank lots of Sammy Smith, never had the organic chocolate though, don't think that was around back then. Excited to try that Roche, actually how about right now!

    Organic Chocolate is one of the best chocolate stouts I've ever had hands down. It's like Yoo Hoo with a kick. I can send you some if you're in need.

    Sam Smith Winter Warmer has been a favorite of mine for 15 years or so.
    Some might say "it's the tits!"

    By far. Although, my HB chocolate stout definitely smells like a Sams Smith OCS. Just need to get it to taste like it.

    Did you take a sick day to wait for the deliveries?
    If so, we could have mid-afternoon drunk posts!
    If not, looking forward to the pr0n tonight.

    Not BIF prOn but figured it might hold you all over. Thanks to some generous donations for bottle caps, kegerator/fermentation cabinet with bottle cap counter top and shelves is nearly complete.

    Good call. I am a glassware whore, and have a bunch of T's accumulating, so I actually include a spreadsheet with all my glassware and T's I have.
