Looks like its my time in the batter’s box. After a rough end to February, I am really looking forward to this. My wants aren’t super out of date, I really like all types of beer (try to stay away from rye) and especially enjoy BA stouts, and any types of IPA (especially double, triple, and belgian). So if you know of an outstanding local beer, throw it in. Cheers to all, and here’s to a great March.
Are wants only listed on BA? Its been tough with BIFs without the trade forums listing wants/gots on BA.
Should be kicking a box of fun stuff out the door this next week. I aim to hit at least a couple of wants and will fill the rest with a variety of fun stuff.
Here’s the best way to find someone’s wants.
Copy and paste the following link, and replace “Retail1LO” with the username of the BA whose wants you want to search. If you want to view their gots, replace the “W” at the end of the link with a “G”
I’m lookin’ forward to putting Brandon’s box together. Last time I shipped to him, his growler of Mongo got damaged somewhere in between the time it got on the truck for delivery, and arriving at his pad. The only loss I’ve ever had in transit.
I tried that, could not see, maybe I did something wrong. I honestly dont know whats on my want list any more.
My box went out today. It’s full of some of my all time favorite beers. You should receive it Tuesday or Wednesday. Cheers!
All the beers are on your want list except one that I’m surprised you haven’t reviewed or had yet.
I’m excited for some Cali goodness.
Got 2 Wants and 2 other beers I like quite a bit bought so far. Going to do some more shopping this weekend and see if I can pick up another want or 2. Should be shipping early next week.
Have a good mix of of Wants, locals, and favorite styles ready to go. Trying to see if it’s possible to track down one more Want this week and will then will ship out!
so the first box arrived from Furthurgone, a great six pack of Cali goodness. On with the haul:
Pliney the Elder (pepertual want)
Bootlegger’s Knuckle Sandwich (perpetual love)
2011 Parabola (love this beer)
Bruery 100% Autumn Maple (have owned this beer 5 times, have yet to try)
Ballast Point Sculpin (love this beer)
and for the one I have never owned or tried….
Kern River 5th Anniversary
Thank you so much for kicking off this month in a great way, really appreciate this load of Cali goodness.
I just had two bottles of the Kern River 5th Anniversary. You’re in for a REAL treat. Might be my favorite IPA/DIPA. EVer. Serious business. It’s that good.
Been tied up with work and unsure what to ship, but I’ve got a few wants (one is a sort of want – a variant on a want) and am filling out with some other solid stuff and might be making a little growler run. Will be shipping Monday (would have today, but couldn’t make the growler run – boo work!).
Also: that Kern River 5th is really damn tasty! Bust into that bad boy!
Looks like box #1 arrived today! A small box #2 is heading out after work today, hopefully it will be there by Friday or Saturday.
day can not end quick enough.
First off, thank you Dan….
and I guess this is becoming the ticker BIF, you will see.
a very cool and sleek bottle opener (cant seem to have enough of them)
now for the beer
RR Supplication (wife’s favorite beer, It wont touch my lips)
Nugget Nectar, love
The Bruery 4 Calling Birds (want, never had)
Cellar Door Artisinal series Farmhouse Ale (never had anything from these guys)
Brooklyn Sorachi Ace (have availalbe to me, have looked at it more than once, never pulled the trigger, glad I get to) and last but not least……
Racer X (duckin love this beer, havent had it since it was released in bottle form, very excited GREAT BOX, cant wait to try em. Thank you very much Dan.
No problem, enjoy! There is another small box leaving here torrow morning…was waiting on 1 more Want and couldn’t fit ’em in the box anyway.
Beer should be landing tomorrow! I feel bad because I think I doubled up on one beer and didn’t send another. Not that the double isn’t great in a widely available seasonal sort of way. Or the rest. Tasty.
the Cellar Door was fantastic, had a great nose from a Farmhouse ale, didnt smell like grass clippings like the rest of them that I have had, had lots of carbonation, teetered on too much. Was a very enjoyable addition. Glad to have gotten the chance to try it.
Cool! Glad you liked it. Stillwater has been doing some cool things lately, and a lot of people seem to like their stuff so I’m glad you were on of them. Looks like the second box should land on Saturday.
Getting the final pieces this weekend and will send off on Monday morning.
so box #2 arrived today from Normyk, and the theme of it being new ticks stayed true, now on to the haul:
Westy 12 (I have owned 2 of them and have not had it, sad and pathetic I know, will enjoy this one tonight with another BA who hasnt had it)
Bourbon Barrell Aged Plead the 5th (thanks to Oreo, I have had this beer and friggin love it)
2012 KBS (have had 1 bottle, mos def glad to get a 2nd one)
2008 Pannepot Grand Riserva (never had, excited)
Nugget Nectar X 2 (friggin love this beer, very glad to have more in the fridge)
Columbus IPA (was able to have copious amounts of this beer last year at DLD, glad to get a bottle)
Brewkettle White Raja (surprisingly never had, excited)
Jackie O’s Bourbon Barrell Aged Middle of Nowhere Stout (never had, have never had a bad Jackie O’s, excited to try)
Rockmill Brewery Cask Aged Tripel (never had anything from this brewery, been in a big Tripel/Quad kick lately, wont last the night)
First off, I need to thank Normyk for switching off months with me while I concentrated healing from surgery, I would of been happy with a 6 pack of bleh for him helping him out that way. But to receive this box to boot, Cheers to you Normyk, you are an outstanding BA, and I cant thank you enough for this box.
Glad you like the goodies – I figured I’d try and provide some quality locals and general badassery. Really wanted to go with a classy CBC growler, but it was not to be. Anyway, a little fun to help with the recovery sort of thing.
Also sending off on Monday morning. I was working real hard to get a couple wants, but came up a bit short. However…your box still has some wants in it, as well as several beers that should be right up your alley in regards to style. Hope you dig it.
the second box arrived from mdfb79. Containing a KBS (12) and a Wiliamsburg Alewerks Cafe Royale, two of my favorites. Also included was a Revolution Brewing pint glass.
very nice, thank you very much.
you have gone above and beyond.
No worries man, enjoy!
Saw KBS on your Wants and wanted to get you a bottle but it got delayed over a week around here, hence the staggered shipping. Enjoy!
Box on it’s way. Due to arrive Thursday. 🙂
Box also arriving tomorrow. Enjoy!
might be one hellova Thursday. By the way boys and girls, I have been officially banned from BA, didnt give me a reason, just a bs excuse. My account shows active, I can receive messages, but I cant view them except for in email form. So if you need to get a hold of me, Cam has my number.

Now if I’m not mistaken, there should be one more today, come on Hayden, get your shit together.
Anytime. The Green peppercorn Triple is from Brewers Art a local brewery in Baltimore. Well worth a visit if you’re in Baltimore. The BBQ should be a bit aged. Don’t remember the year/batch I sent. The Saison Darkly was mighty tasty so I wanted to pass it along. Have a great birthday month.
You should have a box arriving from me shortly. 🙂

and a 2 pack of KBS (dont know year, not stamped for it to be 2012, help Hayden?)
great box Hayden, really appreciate it. Some fun stuff and I get to knock off a couple of new ticks. Cheersya, did you decide not to rish the growler again? Sissy.
Those KBS both have a year on them. 🙂 They’re last year’s. Also, regarding the growler…I had someone else in Texas hunting down a growler of Live Oak Heffeweizen. :-p I DESPERATELY wanted that fucker to be available so I could get it to you in conjunction with the rest of this box, but it wasn’t to be. However, it doesn’t mean it won’t eventually get there, tick whore. LOL I know you’re an IPA fan, and the Nugget Nectar was fresh as hell, so I sent a good does of that. Drink that 75 Minute IPA asap, it’s awesome fresh as well. I also know you love the FFF IPA’s, so I was glad to get that to you as well. Overall it was a fun box to put together. I’m pretty sure I violated the ounce restrictions, but, I don’t give a fuck. :-p LOL
