    Is anyone interested in trading local craft beer(s) with other members? For example I live in Clearwater, FL so I could find the 6 best local craft beers (we have like 50+ breweries within a hour of me) and I can trade it with someone that has their 6 best craft beers. :)

    If 6 is too many we can shrink it too. Just desiring some new craft selection I can't get here

    I would do this, but it would be way to hard (and probably illegal) to ship across the border

    Nearly no breweries nearby that are worth the trouble

    I would love to be apart of this as we have some great ales in the Uk, but I'm not sure on shipping.

    Shipping beer over borders is impossible. It'll sit at customs, they'll inspect it and then I'll goto jail. Shipping it from one US State to another is still tricky but I figured it out. Illegal but I do it

    It's a shame. We have world food aisle's in our shopping stores and they have a few American items but no beer. Then again if the froop loops and lucky charms are anything to go by at a price of £6 each then the beer would more than likely be expensive

    So it is illegal, but you have a way. I may be interested in this, granted there is only a few notable breweries around me, that I like anyways.

    I would do this. I live in Austin, TX. There's a new brewery here every six months. Where is the guide to ship?

    So when do we get this started? Good information in the packing video, btw. Are bottles preferred, because there are some good breweries that only pack in cans!

    I prefer cans. Beer is fresher / less prone to sunlight and easier to ship. We all ship 6 beers? What is everyone willing to ship? If there is 4 of us that means you would ship 18 beers, unless you want to narrow it down to 4?

    Six sounds like a good buzz. What if we just shipped to one person at a time, reducing price and shipping costs. For instance Blaster and I would swap and Dakirch with Raider. Then the next week we'd swap.

    That would work. Even if they agree to space it out more gives us time to try and rate them

    I would do 12.
    I've compiled a rough draft list of beers and I know not all are produced in cans, but if I have a choice, I'll be shipping all cans.
    Now I live in central TX, so the list is mostly, ales and lagers, pales and IPA's... plenty of german influence. With that said, I assume that since us gents are willing to break the law and ship beer, we will drink anything that's cold and in our hands. Right?

    Technically if we ship UPS we are not breaking any laws. Only their terms of service. Yes. Cold. In. My. Hands.

    When you do UPS make sure you do it where they pick it up from your doorstep. Do not drop it off at the store. They ask too many questions. The driver does not.

    Also write FRAGILE everywhere lol

    Two of the same beer isn't a bad idea. That would make it six different beers I probably haven't tried.

    I think what we should maybe do first is layout the pages of some of the local breweries that we enjoy (small list for me) that way we can all see. Almost like an order form or something. That way I am not just sending some triple IPA to someone who enjoys lagers and stouts primarily. Just a thought.

    Well the person would have to make sure they let the other person know what styles they like and do not like.
