Anyone know anything about cross border shipping of homebrew? I'd be into swapping if it's not to much of a headache. I have a Strong ale that should be ready for critique in a few weeks. In fact I'm drinking it now, but it could use some more time.

I have a spearmint honey Cran ale around 3.5-4%a/v that will be available soon.

What size/type bottles do people usually send?

I'm up for trades & swaps with those in the farther reaches of the universe when the cooler weather prevails. Until then if anyone in New England would like to trade I'm game as UPS or FEDEX ground usually only one day away from almost anywhere in NE.

I wouldn't mind doing some swaps, but the one I'm most interested in getting opinions on is still probably a month away from bottling (the mocha stout). The others are either just kit beers (boring), and my maple-raspberry for some reason doesn't really taste like BEER. If the Mocha's decent, I'd like to get some input on it since it was my first foray into my OWN recipe (with lots of help from folks here).

This is interesting.... how will you decide who trades with who? Maybe draw names to see who you send to. Also, maybe pick a date, say in a month or two that eveyone will have theirs beers ready to send and then have everyone send them at the same approx time. Then we can have a thread where everyone can describe the beer they recieved. Just some thoughts.

I have a Weizenbock ready to go (at 2.5 weeks in bottle, it's nice- good flavor, good color, a little crisp, just enough bitter to keep it lively).

I'll be away this weekend but can ship on Monday. Jaybird- I'll send you a couple of bottles of beer for a bottle of your mead?

I also expect to have some pumpkin good to go in October (just brewed it the other day).

Is this better carried out in private messages? I don't know the protocol.

Ive done a few 'swaps' on other boards before, this is kind of how it went.....

Everyone pays to ship the beer to one persons house (the organizer). Beer selection can be done in one of a few ways:

1) Pure lotto (each persons beer gets a number, the organizer draws on our behalf and awards us our prize).
2) Categorized selection (each beer is put into a category ie rare, general, etc, and you are only awarded a prize from the class you enter)

I personally like the idea of splitting the six-pack (?) so that each person gets more variety. I can only assume others would like it another way tho

Everyone who wants to participate chips in:
1) The home brew (say a 6 pack of 22oz bottles)
2) Ship to the organizers house
3) $10 to the organizer (via paypal etc) to cover reshipping of the bottles to lucky winner

So, I need 2-3 weeks, and Im game for a Beer swap. So I suggest the date of September the 30th that all entries need to be @ the organizers house. Wholl volunteer to be the organizer?
