Double Trouble BIF

Double Trouble BIF 1

Recently I signed up for another BIF (Beer It Forward) on Beer Advocate. This BIF was call Double Trouble BIF. The basic premise was that each recipient had to be a pair and send two of each beer, so essentially two identical BIFs happening at once. I thought this was more interesting then your typical BIF so I signed up with Guy (ImStillTheGman). I believe there were 12 pairs involved and we received 10th or so in line.

Well, unlike most BIFs this one has really been snow-balling, with each pair of BIFers really trying to out do whomever was before them, or at the very least impress the pants off the next recipient. Anyway, by the time it got to Guy and I this thing was crazy out of control, both the beers we were going to send and the beers we were about to receive.

The guy we received from, BeerBeing, has such a good trading reputation that he was actually a single man pair, make sense? Anyway, he lives in near by PA, so he decided to drive our beer down instead of shipping it, meaning both that we received it faster and he saved money in shipping which he passed along to us in beer. So with no further ado, here is what we each received, one bottle a piece:

This was a failed attempt at me trying to start a BIF off Beer Advocate, to say the least, it didn’t work – at all. Oh well, I guess that’s what places like Beer Advocate are for.
