Drinking Capital Mutiny IPA and it is terrible. My targets won't get this
...... does this mean I'm not getting beers tomorrow??? Lol.
I'm also celebrating America day by drinking and exploding things. Always a good combo.
Hint #1 - Target one's packages are heading north
Hint #2 - You have at least one NC beer in your wants, and will be getting at least one of you NC wants
Hint #1 - Target two's packages are heading north
Hint #2 - You do not have any NC wants, but will be receiving the same beer as target #1s want
Beer Hint #1 - Check out today's "What are you drinking now?" thread to see one of the beers both my targets will be receiving. Beer hint #2 - Another beer going to both targets shows up today in the "what are you drinking now?" thread for today
I've really enjoyed the Olde Hickory beers that I've tasted, but unfortunately for me I have a feeling I am not one of your targets
well hopefully some YoungMan decided to spend the day at the YMCA as it appears that this has been delivered
Package landed in Michigan. SQUAD!
Received word from the wife that there was a FedEx truck that took several men to deliver a box to out front door.
Well i have monday and tuesday off next week, so i will hopefully be finalizing my boxes this weekend and getting shipped sometime next week. I may need to make one more trip a small distance away from where I love to pick up a few last bottles for my targets. I'll have to try and spend that time coming up with some more hints as well.
Well, I was sitting at my desk and some sweaty emloyee carried over this massive box and almost broke my desk. The only issue with receiving a box of "olive oil" at work is the decision to open it and make people look at me sideways, or wait until I get home. Well 9:45am is the perfect time to open a box full of beer at work! I was blown away by Eric's box. Super awesome, and here is the line up:
BCBS Coffee 2012 (permawant)
Wormtown Brewery IPA (never had)
Wormtown Brewery Pro-Am Porter (never had)
Bells Expedition Stout 2012 (never had)
Jack's Abby Barrel Aged Framinghammer 2013 (never had - want)
Jack's Abby Barrel Aged Framminghammer w/Vanilla Beans 2013 (never had - want)
Jack's Abby Barrel Aged Framminghammer w/Barismo Coffee 2013 (never had - want)
Jack's Abby 2nd Anniversary Lager - Double IPL (never had)
Founders KBS - Not sure of the year (permawant)
Founders Doom (had and enjoyed so another bottles is much appreciated)
Ipswich Oatmeal Stout (never had)
Since I am at work, the pictures will have to wait until I can seductively pose the bottles in a more descrete location. Super stoked on the box! Thanks again Eric!
You are very welcome Chris. I'm glad everything made it safely. I was out of styro shippers and was kind of nervous with the packing job.
I tried to hit some wants and also send a nice mix of locals. Enjoy!!
Porch bombed in Indy. Target hasn't posted in this thread yet so I hope they're ready for it.
The KBS was the most current release
Touchdown in Dallas. Other target, who has already been bombed by my partner (who is also a good trader FYI), will receive a box on Tuesday.
psst - i am on vacation for the next week....wait to send if you haven't already.
Okay, I will.
Too obvious, or just running some interference?
Hints #4a & 4b: One of my targets is married to a physician...the other target lives south of the only east-west US highway that directly connects to Canada (via Ontario Highway 402).
Got home and found a heavy box in my living room waiting for me. mborden brought it strong to the murder mitten!!! We learned in kindergarten that good beer karma is immeasurable and this is a prime example. I had Mike last BIF and he returned the kind of box that made my pants move:
2 - Six Point Resin ( the more the better)
2 - Ithaca Flower Power (nom nom nom)
2 - Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout (sexy)
1 - Péché Mortel ( want!)
1 - Middle Ages Wailing Wench ( already tried to look down the shirt of the lady on the bottle)
1 - Middle Ages X ( this won't last the night!!)
1 - BA Old Rasputin XIV ( huge want)
1 - Bourbon County Cherry Rye (a favorite and perma-want....drool)
1 - Firestone §ucaba ( you win my heart with this one, perma-want)
1 - Firestone Double DBA (I can't take much more of this!)
1 - Firestone Parabola (SQUAD!!)
My wife just said, "Great, you're going to pass out on the bathroom floor again!"
And I responded, " Only if I'm doing it right!"
Great box, Mike. Nailed everything, especially wants!
Now, I'm off to fill my fridge.
Stoked you like the box man. I was really nervous to send you a box at first but then I decided it was the perfect chance to get you back. Drink and be merry dude!
Only slightly upset there was no homebrew...ha
Haha I mainly keg. I'll have to start bottling a few per batch for sharing via FedEx!
I'm sending my kids to THAT school!
Also I forgot to note that the Brooklyn are 11/12 and 12/13
Targets: I'm assuming I can get everything assembled the next few days, and be shipping either next friday, or (more likely) the following monday to avoid it sitting in some hot, gross warehouse of the weekend.
Hints: One of my targets already shipped their box(es). My partner for my other target has also shipped.
That should narrow things down a bit. Those will be my last hints until actual shipment.
Since I had the day off, I figured on getting some shopping done.
I had what I thought was a pretty successful trip until I came home and saw the first two hauls.
The ante has been upped.
I'll be heading an hour or so out the turnpike tomorrow to two breweries in search of a barrel aged Yeti relative and perhaps something even more gruesome if I get lucky.
I didn't realize it had national recognition.
Thought I was being pretty obscure. Ever had it?
I've had both Big and Little Gruesome. I've also had Braiiiiins. Spring House is becoming a personal favorite brewery.
Trade after this is all over?
That's creepy as hell! But it's not me so I'm less concerned.
Maybe this is the noob in me, but what exactly does 'squad' mean? I'm assuming something along the lines of 'awesome' or 'neato', but just for clarification.
and she finally asks the question the rest of us were afraid to...
Ha, I'm a big Waka Flocka fan. You can watch this video or move ahead to the 5:18 mark and you'll understand exactly what I'm referring to. But basically, you're correct.
Been looking for some since having WBC Peanut Butter Cup!
Peanut butter cup beer mmmm that sounds strange and amazing. I was a big fan of liquid bliss, but have not had any other peanut beers yet.
I really liked Sweet Baby Jesus. Definitely recommend it!
Yeah my preferred store gets it Tuesday
So where are the pictures
Sorry haven't been active on this thread much but that's about to change. My fault for joining this crazy BIF in the middle of an corporate office move. Hints to follow, but my targets' boxes should ship out Monday.
Wife just texted me to let me know that a heavy box showed up on our porch this morning from someone named Mike. Thanks in advance Mike. I'll post the haul as soon as I get home.
