    Getting started on my box this week. Probably won’t go out until next week given how far it’s to travel (I try not to ship over a weekend), but it should be solid and tasty. Some real treats should go out given just a brief look at wants. Prepare thyself!

    • normyk says:

      I realized that I might have a shot at something cool this weekend so I held off on shipping – just in case. The box will head out Monday, hopefully with something extra fun in it.

  2. davesway10 says:

    Gathering supplies, will have a box out no later than the 16th.

  3. furthurgone says:

    I can’t wait to start getting my birthday boxes. I’ve been excited about this since we started this marathon. Thanks in advance for all the great beers I’m going to recieve.



  4. furthurgone says:

    Just a heads up. I’m going to be away from home the weekend of 4/13-4/15. Someone will be coming by my house to feed my animals So boxes should be ok if they land in that time frame.



  5. Desaparecido says:

    Box is packed up and will be dropped off tomorrow morning.

  6. urbancaver says:

    Woohoo! I get a month off 🙂

  7. mdfb79 says:

    Finishing up your box this weekend and sending it out first thing in the morning on Monday 4/16. Got a few Wants and trying to hit 1 or 2 more this weekend!

  8. furthurgone says:

  9. davesway10 says:

  12. Retail1LO says:

  13. Retail1LO says:

    BTW….boy is it quiet in here. :-p Must be some devious things afoot.

  14. Retail1LO says:

    Box due to land tomorrow. Can’t wait for you to get it.

  15. furthurgone says:

    Dan, I got one box. I think there were supposed to be 2? Do you have a tracking number. I want to wait to post the haul until I find out.

    • mdfb79 says:

      Hey, I sent 2 boxes, a 3 bottle shipper and a 6 bottle shipper…very weird because they went out at the same exact time from the same location. Anyway here is the tracking number via FedEx: 980591615000990

      Looks like it should land today!

    1 more package to go ??? Lets get April finished.

  33. Brandon says:

    still on track to land on Saturday. Sorry for the tardiness. May’s will go out on monday/tuesday due to the fact I just found out that I HAVE TO FUCKING HAVE ANOTHER BACK SURGERY!

    • davesway10 says:

      Sorry brother, my wife has been through two back surgery’s as well. I feel your pain (in a second hand sympathetic sort of way) and hope everything works out for you. For what it’s worth I was counting your package as delivered :). which still leaves 1 delinquency.

  34. Brandon says:

    Fedex says package delivered today

  35. furthurgone says:

    I got a box today from Brandon (Biglobo8971)… I got the box and your message but didn’t want to call back too late because of the time difference. I’ll try and post the haul tomorrow but, no guarantees, its a brew day! I will say this box came right in time. I can’t wait to get into these growlers tomorrow/today.
