Default Belma beer trade

After some discussion in the original Belma thread, I'm starting this one for the Belma beer swap. If no one protests, I'm picking Feb 15 as the ship by date, aiming to hold the group online tasting around Mar 1, depending on participants' schedules.

For now, I think these are the "rules" that the current participants have come up with:

1) Beers for the swap should feature Belma.

2) Get 3, ship 3. An extra beer or two, homebrewed or local micro, would of course be encouraged, but not required.

Not too complicated. RSVP in this thread with your suggestions for how the swap should work, when we want to ship, and when to have the tasting.

I'm game. I've got a Belma IPA that is about to be kegged in a week.

I'll probably do a saison with it as well.

3 in, 3 out. So you'd have atleast 3 different Belma beers from 3 different people. Having extras in the box to a degree would be great I think. For one, it doesn't increase shipping too much, and makes it worth the price, instead of sending one beer.

Dates sound fine. Online tasting sounds fun, for those that can't do that, or don't have the means, I would say that would be fine too. We can have a thread for the tasting, and each person can post up about anothers beer in a mini review..

Whoops, I hadn't read that, figured it just said 'don't break the law'. Been needing to pony up the $25 anyway.

Well, "dont break the law" IS a good rule of thumb!

All group exchanges should be coordinated by a Supporting Member or preferably a Moderator. Exchanges are restricted to supporting members unless otherwise stated.

Why do you have to be a supporting member to exchange beer with another HBT'er?

You don't! It's only the organized "group" exchanges. You can swap or exchange with anyone you choose to, with the awareness that you're taking the risk.

With an organized group exchange, the person doing the exchange is the one sort of "vouching" for people as well as doing the organizing work. These are the bigger exchanges that require coordination.

Small one-to-one exchanges organized by the participants are absolutely fine.

I'd like to get in on this. I haven't even received my Belma yet, but it's on the way and I plan on brewing something with it as soon as I get it. I was originally thinking a SMaSH, but based on things I read in the original Belma thread, I think I'm going to pair it with something else. I'll wait until I get it to smell and taste before I decide what exactly the pairing hop will be.

Totally down, so 3, 12oz bottles of the same belma homebrew? So they can be split up?

That's how I am understanding it. One beer each to three individuals.
