    what was his excuse?

    Had a box show up Friday with a leaking growler - one was for me and one was for my target. I'll crack open the leaky one tonight and see if it's any good and then off the other one shall go. I was under the assumption it would have been counter pressured but i was mistaken, i guess i just take town hall for granted.

    As I am drinking Lagunitas sucks for $8 a pitcher (thanks local pizza shop for being retarded), I dream about town hall masala mama. Go Syracuse!

    He was getting some of his stuff out of storage there, had his golf clubs over his shoulder, swung around and, crash. Needless to say I am in the process of relocating my cellar out of his reach.

    I have a pretty good idea who is sending me boxes.

    To my target, I apologize, I've been dealing with some medical issues lately, but I'm traveling to Western PA and Ohio to try to track down some regional (fresh) IPAs along with some other good stuff if I can find any. I'm going to maybe pick up some swag as well while there.

    Looking at around 6-7 wants right now with possibly more, along with a few bottles that are variants of a couple of wants (think different barrels). There will be some sours from PA along with some 1L growlers, but absolutely no Dogfish Head. ;)

    Some hints for my target: you are west of me and I have not traded with you before.

    I was going off of a vague hint from a few pages back, so you're probably correct!

    The blizzard that we are getting tomorrow will allow me to finish packing the box for my target. Should be able to ship on Tuesday. So far I got a 12 bottle shipper filled with big bottles, most are wants. Thinking I may get a some more "fresh" ounces tomorrow. And some swag big enough to fit lobo

    After some regrouping, I have 20ish bottles/growlers selected with at least 8 wants, some wants with multiple vintages. Hoping to get the first of 3(?) boxes out tomorrow. Box will probably travel through some snow on the way to my target.

    After looking again at the weather, I might hold off until Wednesday so my target gets the first box on Friday.

    Since I'm such a lazy ass, this will be my one and only hint. Technically it is beer-related. If you don't understand the hint, then I'm likely not sending to you

    It arrived!
    Went out Saturday for some St. Pattys day mayhem and while I was out the porch took a beating. Wife hid the box and told me Sunday when I got up that a box had came and she hid it so when I got back from the outing, me and my buddies wouldn't finish it all off. Very nice way to start my Sunday, big thank you to johnyb!
    Hit some things I never had on my wants but should have and hit plenty of things I really wanted to try.
    Love the snifter and metal tacker too.

    Enough with the talking, time to get to the pictures

    OK, I apologize to the other participants but I'm going to make this whole BIF my bitch

    Final Stats on the boxes hitting the road today

    Number of Beers = 27
    Total Number of Ounces = 528
    Number of Wants = 18

    rAvg Average = 4.33
    rAvg Max = 4.82
    rAvg Min = 3.86

    BA Score Average = 95.12
    BA Score Max = 100 x4
    BA Score Min = 86

    Both the rAvg Min and the BA Score Min belong to the base version of a barrel aged beer which is also in the box (4.38 90). I included it for a side by side

    7 pieces of swag 4 of which are stemware. Each piece of stemware has a matching beer from that brewery to be enjoy in it

    Deal with it

    so it's like that now!

    I'll have to make some adjustments, good thing i'm semi hung over today and didn't get my first box out. I'll have something out tomorrow regardless.

    To my target: your box is scheduled to land on Friday. I will be sending a twelve-bottle shipper on Monday; I am supposed to be receiving the last bottle for the box later this week. Get ready for you nether-regions to hurt for a couple weeks!

    Nobody got my schroedingers cat reference, which is two fold. Plus I really didn't think the song was that well known. It's probably 20 years old.

    I told Stu that I thought you were his sender right after your first clue. Just a feeling that never went away.
    I don't get the Schrodinger's cat thing, though.

    It was really because, at the start of this BIF, everyone is in a superposition of receiving from all other participants, and the waveform slowly collapses based on repeated observations.
