    No I will hold off because one of the food items, which will be fine during transport, will eventually need to be eaten . Cheers enjoy your trip and be ready for when you get back.

    Awesome, I will ship box #2 next week and email you the list. Hope you enjoyed your trip. I will try to avoid Belgians. Ha ha

    Haha...it was pretty damn sweet. Was able to take visiting Cantillon off my bucket list. Cracking opening a Fou Foune at the brewery for 10 euros was probably the beer highlight for me.

    Box #2 should be heading out today I believe. Hey Shrek, are you going to include the list in the box or can you message me the remaining participants so I can select my target and send out a box next week?

    So then there were 5. Over a year later, this is what we are left with:
    Hophead101, PA
    Landrewg, MI
    Huadog, CA
    G311, PA and
    Biglobo8971 who receives last. I would welcome a box from any of you 4, here's to finally wrapping this thing up.

    Going to do some research and choose my target tonight.

    To my target whoever you may be: I will do my best to deliver some fucking awesome boxes. If you guys could update your wants, that also would be helpful since Im a fan of destroying people's wants list.

    looks like I'm getting a PA box, which I am happy to. I can not complain at all of the 3 that are left to send to me. Well worth the wait.

    I guess I've got a 50/50 chance of receiving next...good luck to you Mr. Orth.

    I know whichever one of us gets passed over will take good care of our very patient host.

    I love that I basically get kicked off BA forever ago, come back, and this BIF is still going. I now have the biggest beer boner from all these hauls! When is round 2?

    let's finish round 1 first, as soon as it does, someone else can sponsor round 2.
     
  22. G311

    G311 Dec 27, 2007 Pennsylvania

    A suggestion if I may regarding the finish. Since we know that either Greg or I will receive next, then Huadog, then whichever one of us PA gents that doesn't get some love from Minnesota, and then finally to you, Lobo...once this next box drops why don't we all start firing out our boxes since we'll know who has who. A grand finale if you will.

    Just got home and unpacked the monster box! Here is what was inside:

    [​IMG]

    Brute! (One of my favorite beers, can't get enough of this stuff!)
    Nugget Nectar
    Ghandi Bot (Big fan)
    Ballast Point Victory at Sea (Another great beer)
    Weyerbacher Heresy
    Harvest Moon Heritage Hops Cider (Going to share this with my sister tonight since she is gluten free)
    Weyerbacher Double Simcoe
    Deschute Black Butte Porter (One of my go to porters)
    White Birch Jasmine
    Landmark Imperial Brown
    Deschute Hop in the Dark
    And some smoked meat, marinade sauce and some tasty looking spicy tomato oil

    Quite the variety with some east coast favorites, offerings from breweries I've never had/heard of before as well as some other staples. Thanks for all the beer/swag/food Shrek! My fridge is at full capacity now.

    Target has been selected. Brandon, you want me to message you the target? Not sure if it's worth posting hints since it will only being going to 1 out of 2 people. :D

    might as well announce in the thread. It's pretty easy to figure out. Being the fact there is 2 East Coasters and 1 Cali guy left, might as well get this guy finished before I have another surgery.

    The meat sticks are traditional polish kabozany. The specified marinade goes awesome as an overnight marinade for chicken or beef skewers. The hot Tom wAs featured on diners drive-ins and dives. Heat it and dip Italian bread or cheese and crackers into it. Awesome. The cider is made 10 minutes from my house. Enjoy

    don't give him a hard time that Deschutes and Weyerbacher are distro'ed here. That's ok, the marinade makes up for it.

    no, I am sublimally telling you to "ship me a box of beer, ship me a box of beer, ship me a box of beer before DLD, ship me a box of beer, ship me a box of beer before DLD, ship me a bos of beer" not saying, just saying. If it's cold, I will rep the tshirt you gave me. If not, I have a special t shirt that you might hear about.
