    pro-tip: wax a cork and cage if you want to ruin someone's day.

    I've used a sticker and then some carefully placed electrical tape.

    Just use duct/electric tape or a sharpie pen. Waxing would waste both you, and your recipient's time.

    I actually removed the wax from a few bottles that i plan on sending. I wanted to make sure the caps didnt have brewery logos and to throw off the scent.

    Everyone likes hops right? And saisons/farmhouse stuff? Well, target, you'd better.

    I keep trying but this goddamn New England weather keeps fucking with me. It's a good thing I have a month to shop at this rate.

    The long hint period before shipping means I have to be extra vague...

    My target's avatar has a mammal in it.

    I have 3 of the 10 Bottles selected. I am trying to figure out 4 others. The remaining 3 will likely be local IPAs that I will get just prior to shipping. My target's avatar also has a mammal in it.

    I've got four of the 10 beers figured out. Hoping a certain Chicago brewery releases some choice DIPA just in time to ship.
