    Friday brought the conclusion of the New Tick Parallel traveling box, after a journey that began back in February, 2016. Over the course of 3+ years, this box reached 17 Locals, providing countless "New Ticks", swag, and swap beers. Opening this was pretty cool, seeing how it all came full circle. This last trip was courtesy of @blassor



    Stickers from many of the stops across the country, and 4 internal boxes with countless layers of tape.

    First up, the Swap Box. This started with 3 bottles from my cellar, and over the years eventually each of those was replaced with new bottles from each participant. The full list of Swap Box bottles is at the end of this post, but here's what ended up on my porch;


    Vinosyth Red, ANTEAD, Mocha Wednesday!

    Next up is the Secondary Brewery box. Fermentery Form - never heard of these guys, but these look delicious. Wild fermented stuff; Rustic golden ale, Bitter spice beer, Fooz with peaches!

    And some extras - Strawberry Milkshake IPA and Coconut Guava Milkshake IPA! More new ticks!



    Lastly, the Primary Brewery box. The Referend. I've heard of them, but have never had a chance to try them before. This last leg of the NTP box could not have matched up any better!



    Krak! Krek! - Cherries
    Nightwood - Aronia & Elderberries
    Avond de rode boom - Rhubarb
    Gloria - Berliner/Lambic blend
    Awesome Referend shirt!

    Cheers Brandon! Fantastic box!

    Full list of Swap Box beers;
    Started - Casey East Bank / Rare Barrel Map of the Sun / Alesmith BA Speedway
    Ended - Upland Vinosyth Red / Kane ANTEAD / Bruery Mocha Wednesday
    Along the way;
    Olde Hickory Appalachian Walker
    Prairie Branson Jamboree
    Angry Chair Popinski
    Bruery Mocha Wednesday
    Cigar City Caffe Americano
    3F Oude Kriek
    Bruery Black Tuesday
    3F A&G
    Foothills BA Sexual Chocolate
    Jester King Colour Five
    Lavery Devil Bird
    Transient Bring the Ruckley
    Hill Farmstead Florence Puncheon

    Thank you to everyone who participated! Cheers Locals!

    Bonus Hint - you recently checked into a beer I was going to send you, but I just now realized that. Unfortunately, I am out of town packing up your box to send tomorrow so you will get it before the weekend. Oh, and I forgot your swag. I guess I will be sending a second box next week. Sorry. Not sorry.

    Well,... @dannyfayy played the ultimate con on me. He had me convinced of his master plan for targets for this sixer round and I took the bait. Little did I know the whole time he was just stringing me along. This two-timing intergalactic space hussy showed up on my porch today with a box of goodies. Caught me off guard for sure. You will rue the day you crossed me Trebek!

    What you did there, I see it. But only after I got a shipping notification, so not really. Looks like I'll be passing up those extra hours at work today, can't wait!

    Since I didn’t pay for shipping , I thought it was only fair to send some additional extras to make up for the $ I saved.

    Unfortunately, no. I've moved. Twice. And I think both FedEx and UPS have me on their watch lists. And I forgot to tip my USPS delivery guy around the holidays, so now he tends to steal any boxes that sound like beer.

    @NJB145 hit me with a patriotic 12 shipper full of wants and very large format wrapped beers!
    The extras:
    Transient Obligatory- awesome
    Transient Maigre (with Michigan grapes- I’m secretly pretending their from Marty Lagina’s vineyard ala “Curse of Oak Island”)
    Speciation Wardian Case- sounds amazing
    Casey Preserves Apricot- huge want!
    Ale smith Viet Speedway- another want
    Transient Honey Stone- already chilling to go down tonight.
    Transient bottle opener ( perfect size for taking to shares)
    Speciation sticker- I am a self professed sticker whore.

    Thanks, @NJB145- I can’t wait to start the wrapped bottles!

    Final hint as my target should have a shipment notification at this time:

    [​IMG]

    Should land Saturday or Monday with the extras and 6 days. Another box will leave next week with 1 more extra and swag.

    Content Hint: Thursday - Sunday you're gonna want to stay hydrated...

    Came home to a massive box from a fellow Local. My sender was none other than that sneaky @valrxman

    Dude crushed it. And those are with just the unwrapped beers. And a fuckin awesome glass! I have a feeling it may be needed in the near future for some of the wrapped beers. Can’t wait to dig in

    I am pretty sure my target doesn't know I am sunding to him... So, here's a helpful hint...
    Hint 1 - shipping 2 or more states away but less than 4 states away
    Hint 2 - shipping to a state with at least 3 syllables (sorry Mike)
    Hint 3 - I joined BA before my target
    Hint 4 - my target is also a slacker
    Hint 5 - I have ticked that handshake
    Hint 6 - my target really likes pastry stouts and haze, so I am going to do my best to load you up with these styles
    Hint 7 - I have more Untappd badges than my target
    Hint 8 - but less checkins

    Got home later than expected last night and immediately got to work unpacking this monster box from @PassMeAZima I'm a little concerned though, as Jason labeled 4 of the wrapped bottles with "1" and the other 2 bottles with a "2". I can put some beers down, but I'm not entirely sure I can put 4 big bootles down myself in one night :joy:

    [​IMG]

    Not only did @PassMeAZima send the 6 wrapped bottles, but also 6 cans, a loon, 2 pieces of #pgw, and a tasty sounding West Sixth Snake! Can't wait to dig in, but I need a little explanation on the wrapped bottles, please spare my liver. Thanks Jason, can't wait to see what you have hiding under that paper!
