yes, it is HandFarm. The CS D'or is the fresh hop (regular is black wax). Hope you enjoy! What is in the glass?
Well done Mr. Hack
We broke them in with some CL Hops and Roses. I believe that pic was with some HF Juicy from the previous rounds box sent by GuissepeFranco.
PS, the Norma came wrapped up in a bag that said, and I quote, "Who's your daddy". Thanks Pops!
Nice box, DaveHack!
So, who's my daddy? Got any clues for me? Anyone? (Or am I as bad at catching hints as Stevec32?)
Not sure who is sending to me either.
To my target i drove to a brewery two states away to pick up a want for you and they happened to have another nice bottle and a matching swag to your want. the box im sending so it will be on its way west and will land in an area i have shipped alot of boxes too both in bifs and trades.
I really am pretty bad but in my defense I had you on my list of 3 possible senders.
HINT: Your Avatar has a person in it.
HINT #2: You reside in the same state as one of my past trading partners
Maybe it's a cul-de-sac? Heh. I keed, I keed!
Got a nice box of beer from Kmccabe33 the other day and haven't had the chance to open it until today, work has been killing me. Wanted to get it up on the thread to let the sender know it's all arrived safely.
Here's the haul:
Fantome Printemps - Want
Fantome Hiver - Excellent beer!
CL Hops and Roses - Want
GI Madame Rose - Excellent beer!
Hill Farmstead Florence - Should be a want, have never had this one.
Jolly Pumpkin Maricoba
Dogfish Head Positive Contact
Stillwater/Mikeller Our Side
This is a good box, but for future reference when nationally distributed beers are included in BIF boxes they likely are available in the PNW. Stillwater/Mikeller, Dogfish Head, and Tilquin are all shelf beers in Washington and it's not that they're not delicious (Tilquin is a favorite beer of mine) but I'd rather get smaller producers from your area that I can't get at the local beer store.
The haul pic.
Aaaaannd, I just realized the Jolly Pumpkin is the other M beer....Madrugada Obscura, the stout, not Maracaibo Especial, the brown ale. I knew the one it was, just typed it wrong in my first post.
I sent Jeff a BM, but I have another box building to send out his way, I realize(and knew when sending) my box was quite light compared to what it should be, just was waiting on stuff to come in and just everything got delayed. I am working to make it right!
This is good. I think there was a little bit of an elephant in the room .....glad to see the BIF is going strong. Seek a brew, it's your friend!!!!
So from my spreadsheet, not sure if I am missing anyone, but here are who are still expecting boxes:
I believe I have spoken with most if not all senders and boxes should be landing soon.
Mikereaser received a box from me about a month ago.
Boom, this is why I post this to check!
My target should expect mail tomm so one of those names can be crossed off the list. Not sure who is sending to me but i figure if they were waiting this long it was to acquire certain/special bottles which is cool with me.
For real, where my sours at, yo?
Landing this week
I am sure my sender is just waiting to get a couple more whales to add to my box. No worries.
CDB636 Received the first box
Updated, I believe all boxes will be landed by Friday.
Someones box landed today.
And a very nice box it is. Thanks!
Haul post to come.
Still left. I believe there is another box landing today...
The haul from jsilva:
Allagash FV 13
Deschutes Dissident 2010
Port Ne Goeien Saison
Allagash Coolship Resurgam
Cantillon Iris 2012
Pretty Things Jack D'or
Night Shift Somer Weisse
Portsmouth Sour Brune Ale
Lost Abbey Saints' Devotion 2012
RR Sanctification b5
...and a badass Coolship glass from Allagash.
My wants are hard, but jsilva still managed to hit a couple and send me some solid likes and bunch of stuff I haven't heard of or haven't tried yet. This box is why I like to participate in BIFs.
SHOW ME THE GLASS!
Glad you liked it. You were certainly tough to hit wants but you gave me an excuse for a roadtrip to allagash to pickup those bottles and glass for ya. That night shift bottle is quite different gotta be open minded. I didnt like it at first then it kept growing on me as i sipped more has a pretty big ginger presence then it gets sour and lemony actually pretty dam good by the end lol.
So after a little snafu with the shipping part 1 of the box should be on its way eastward finally and should be landing in a colony on Friday. Getting some of the stuff to the midwest in the extended winter proved problematic but I think this portion should start compensating for being late with the first part. Should have the other one on its way soon.
to my target (all the way on the other side of the country) sorry for the delay. The box is out and should land in 4 days. you had way more stouts on your wants than sours, saisons or funk... but I hope a box full of goodies from one of the best breweries including one of the recent limited release helps
