    you my friend are not easy!! gonna try to put some trades together to hit some of your wants.

    • mdfb79 says:

      No worries! I know some of my Wants are tough, but I really love any good stouts, Sours/Wilds, (D)IPA’s, and locals. Always interested in trying new beers I haven’t rated before, or beers I have rated that I’ve rated highly. ๐Ÿ™‚



  2. Desaparecido says:

    Let me know when you want to get together and have a small tasting where I can hook you up with your box. I want to say I have the beers ready to go. I’ll get a couple other BA’s to join us.

    • mdfb79 says:

      BM sent Edgar ๐Ÿ™‚

      To everyone, my apartment building has a 24/7 manned office that takes in packages for us, so they will be safe and sound, but a few months ago they stopped notifying us when we received packages so when I don’t have a tracking number, it makes it hard for me to know if a package has been delivered. I’ll probably start checking every night regardless in a week or so in anticipation, but if you want to post here or BM me when your box gets delivered feel free!

    My box for Dan is almost complete, just got to grab a few more wants from the cellar and I will be shipping Monday for mid-week delivery next week. Let the Feb games begin. Cheers! Jay

  4. normyk says:

    It appears I’ve been tagged in to participate for February. Normally I’d be two or three weeks into my February work and maybe even have shipped already, but now I’ve been caught off guard. What does that mean for he box I’ll be sending? Not a damn thing! I got so many wants it’s silly! Gonna send some damn tasty beer! When? Not sure. Got this and Black Booty to deal with, but when it arrives it will be awesome!

  5. davesway10 says:

    I’ll be shipping late this week or the following Monday.

  6. jyounger30 says:

    Just getting my box out after a week of unexpected business travel. You’ll get an e-mail in a minute Dan with the UPS tracking number. Scheduled for a Wednesday delivery. Cheers! Jay

  7. Retail1LO says:

    My box will be out by next Monday at the latest. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. davesway10 says:

      Thanks again Dave! Very excited to finally try these NG and CL beers, and always like trying new beers from Flossmoor. The Redband looks really cool too. I got to try a sample of Harvest Dance at a BA festival in Boston last year and liked it, so it’ll be nice to try it again!


  9. urbancaver says:

    Birthday BIF Box from jyounger30.

    Thanks a ton for the killer box Jay! The BA Naked Evil was a huge want of mine, and I’m really excited to try the NG Cranbic alongside the NG Apple Ale Dave sent. I actually had a 2010 bottle of the Happy Ending recently and thought it had faded, and wrote in my review about how I’d like to try a fresh bottle, so I will be drinking that one sooner then later. Some other beers that weren’t on my Wants but are always wanted as well, will make for a fun weekend! I think Sunday I’m going to use the bread mix too!



  11. Retail1LO says:

    Just finished packing up what will appear to be a small box. Beware! Big things inside! I was able to hit some wants, and send some real nice stuff from within your favorite styles. Goes out on Monday, and could arrive as early as Tuesday. Wednesday at the latest.

  12. normyk says:

    Shipping Wednesday! Have a nice lineup of tasty treats selected. Had to make a couple of changes in light of the first couple of boxes, but still have some fun stuff to send.

  13. Retail1LO says:

    Put a box in the mail yesterday. It’s only a matter of time. Hit some wants, some of your favorite styles, and it’s all tasty tasty stuff.

  15. Retail1LO says:

    Little alarmed. Did my box not show up yesterday???

    • mdfb79 says:

      Hey Hayden,

      It looks like your box arrived yesterday and I had checked my packages for the day, so I missed it last night. After seeing your comment this morning I went down and picked it up before work, so don’t fear, it arrived safe and sound! Another great box from Hayden arrived to make this box #4. The haul:

      2008 J.W. Lees Harvest Ale (Calvados Cask)

      Birthday BIF Box from Retail1LO.

      Thanks again Hayden! Lunch has been a big Want of mine for a while and I missed it a few weeks ago in Boston, and excited to get a 2012 Behemoth for my mini-vertical! Very excited for all of these.



      • Retail1LO says:

        Lunch just made its first appearance in the Philadelphia area recently, and it went super quickly. I only got two bottles. That’s one of them. It’s one of my favorite east coast IPA’s. The Deliverance and Behemoth are also incredible. The Behemoth is closer to DIPA than barleywine at this point…and that’s not a detraction. I think it’s excellent. I think you’ll enjoy the JW Lees stuff too. ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy!

        • mdfb79 says:

          Awesome, thanks! I’m pretty excited to do some cool side by sides now with the JW Lee’s, SFTO’s from Cam, and 3 years of Behemoth! I’ll be cracking the Lunch tonight after dinner. ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. normyk says:

    Out for delivery is a 9 bottle shipper with a selection of tasty treats.

    • normyk says:

        Some awesome, awesome beers here! My girlfriend will be very excited about the Blushing Monk and Lolita…we’ll probably crack them next weekend. I’ve never seen a Westy 12 bottle with that label on it before…is this one of the ones that got distributed in the US? Thanks again Norm!



        • normyk says:

          Glad it arrived safe and sound and you like what I put together! It is always a lot of fun to make a box where I have a lot of stuff to choose from. And the Westy is from one of the boxes that will eventually make it to the US.
