    So i traded to get those Alpine beers and got a duplicate set for myself. I should have done a better quality control test before sending them, sadly i was not impressed with the alpine bottles. I believe they are still having issues with their bottling line as they all seemed under carbonated when i drank them over the last two days.

    I'm not quite done with you just yet. I'll be working on box #2. More wants to follow :grinning:

    I must have missed the drop off time as it's still meandering its way to the Northeast - expect a shipment Monday (after 7 days of travel!)

    Hint 9: Was my target split from 915?

    Well, I have met you IP, but I am sending to BigLobo. Do you fit the criteria of either of the other 2 possibilities?

    Picked up some beer/swag/glassware for my target today. First box will go out early next week. No timetable yet for second box, still trying to iron out a few details in my trade. It will probably be super late past the deadline. But it will be worth it... :grinning:

    I think many in this BIF will receive packages after the deadline, but the minimum will be satisfied beforehand. That is what I am planning. Btw, not that it is necessary with the group that Brandon assembled, but what is the minimum?

    I just picked up another beer for my bitch at the brew pub today, a full day after the release party along with a glass from said brewery. Headed back to Philly tomorrow and hope to have the boxes out by Wednesday at the latest. Just need to pick up growlers.

    So, my apologies to my target as I've been awful quiet and horrible with the clues. Here are the stats on box #1 heading out today if all goes as planned:

    Bottles - 12
    Ounces - 281
    Wants % - 100%
    Avg BA Score - 97.5 (a cool 98.6 without the outlier want at 85)
    Avg rAvg - 4.47

    My target and I have never traded, but I recently received a delicious growler-only beer from his state courtesy of another trading partner. I once watched a baseball game in his state after winning a lot of cash from some generous donors at the poker table on a riverboat casino. I asked for the best seat at the box office and ended up being the only one in my row, about 5 rows behind home plate on a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon. Assuming the box goes out today, hints will be coming daily until it arrives on the porch. If my FedEx math is correct, that will be Friday.

    Box #2 and schwag are already in the works, but it might take a little bit of time to really make you my bitch so be patient. Rest assured, I am relentless and I'm on a mission from God!

    To whom it may concern,

    I am planning on being out of town this weekend, starting on Thursday afternoon. I will be returning late Sunday night. To my bitch, I am planning on getting your box in the mail tomorrow, but it may be Wednesday when it's all said and done. I will update in here either way. To my sender, if you could arrange my box to not get here while I'm out of town, it would be much appreciated.

    My bitch is going to have a couple extra days to get ready for some heavy lifting. We have a cold front here right now and it's heading East to my target. Don't want the boxes traveling in cold trucks for several days. Looking at dropping off boxes Wednesday.

    No worries on shipping. I did open it up with my step mom and girlfriend on Friday night. Both really enjoyed it (as did I) and were extremely grateful. I just got back to Philly today and will try to get the picture of box 1 up tonight.

    Okay, so I was packing up a small box for a buddy of mine in AZ and I dropped a Imp Stout trooper, smells good. So on to the back breaking that StarRaptor (Scott). I had an idea with some of his clues but was completely lost with others. So, here we go:

    750ml bottles
    AleSmith Speedway Stout
    AleSmith BB Kopi Luwak Speedway Stout
    Alesmith Decadence
    AleSmith BB Decadence
    Hangar 24 2012 Barrel Roll Pugachevs Cobra (never heard of it, love the name)
    NG Belgian Red
    NG Raspberry Tart
    NG Serendipity

    22oz bombers
    AleSmith Yulesmith
    AleSmith IPA
    Surly Smoke (was just sending my last bottle elsewhere, thanks)
    BP Victory at sea
    BP Sculpin
    Knuckle Sandwich
    Port Mongo
    Noble Ale Works Big Whip (cool, new to me)

    Surly 16oz cans
    Hell
    Furious
    Abrasive
    Bender

    375ml bottles
    RR Supplication
    RR Sanctification
    RR Beatification (Super Want)
    LA Red Poppy (Hell yeah)

    12oz bottle
    FatHeads Head Hunter IPA (great ipa)
    Westy 12 homebrew Clone (awesome)

    11.2oz bottle
    Westy 12 (Cant Wait)

    Swag
    RR PTY 2013 t-shirt (awesome) if i cant have the beer, at least i got the shirt
    LA Flag (real cool)
    Surly stickers
    Surly Darkness snifter
    Hangar 24 snifter
    RR Glass
    LA Glass (Fucking awesome, I have ALWATS wanted one of these, super stoked)

    THere is so much in this box, and I love all of it. Some are Perma Wants. Some I have never had like Knuckle Sandwich or Beatification. Some my wife loves like Red Poppy and all NG. I admit it. StarRaptor is my pimp and I am his Bitch. THere I said it.

    They change Alesmith Decadence every year so the one they used for the BA version was the 2011 batch which I tracked down for the sole purpose of a side by side for you.

    Glad the RR Beatification was a super want. I wanted to send a lot of should be wants (which was almost everything else)

    Glad you like the glassware, collecting it was the perfect excuse to collect some additional glasses for myself.

    Most of the IPAs I collected multiple of from the same batch so I could personally ensure freshness. in a couple of cases this resulted in tracking down different/fresher batches.

    Got a break in the weather so I just dropped off the first 2 boxes. The next 2 will be dropped off tomorrow. I got tired of carrying that much weight around in one trip.

    So I had guessed that MNbearsfan was my sender... Then he said a box landed Friday and i saw nothing, and figured I was wrong. After a long drunken weekend that included a Lost Abbey release, Lunch at Churchill's, a night at Scott's drinking his effin beer, and a Bruery clusterfork I pretty much forgot Friday. Cue today when I get a BM asking if I received the box... After a call to my leasing office I found that I did in fact get a package Friday that they forgot to notify me about. Picked it up today and clearly I didn't use enough lube. I just got slammed hard! 11 wants and one should be want that was definitely wish list (the only reason it wasn't a want because I didn't know it existed).

    2012 Mother of all Storms - my first 2012 bottle! Thank you!
    Upland Dantilion - Never even heard of this beer but I have loved absolutely every sour I have tried from Upland!
    Upland Raspberry - Yes I would love to receive this bottle again, thank you for asking!
    Steel Toe Lunker - Never had this but heard absolutely awesome stuff about it!
    Central Waters Fifteen - Had a sip of this at Scott's on Saturday and I'm stoked to have a bottle of my own!

    G.I. Juliet - Favorite Sister, yes please!
    Surly Pentagram - What?! Thank you!

    Box one is being packed now.

    A 12 bottle shipper filled with:

    5 Wants
    4 Brewery only releases
    8 of the beers spent time in a barrel
    3 are highly rated IPAs from the same state
    States represented: CA, NY, OH, PA

    Also including 2 boxes that housed two of the beers along with an insert for one. Dropping off at FedEx tomorrow and it will be going Northwest to the state with the most people in this BIF.

    I miscounted glasses this weekend, so I'm going to be scrambling to get some swag for my target, but I should be able to get a sweet glass to go with a couple of growlers, hopefully tomorrow. Ideally I'd like to have everything out to my target so that he receives it before the weekend.

    Edit - after seeing a haul from my target, a couple of the beers I planned to send will be subbed out, as he sent them to his target. :grimacing:
