Default Kalamazoo,MI brewer interested in homebrew exchanges

Hello all,

I live in Kalamazoo, MI and am looking for some people to exchange homebrews with for sampling and critique. I don't have a lot of friends who are into good beer, so I am not getting very constructive feedback on my beers. And the local homebreweing club does a lot of their meetings in bars, so you can't bring beer for sampling(90% of my reason to join a club would be to taste other's beers and have them taste mine - why a homebrewing club would conduct their meetings in a bar is beyond me). I am looking for any homebrewers within a reasonable distance that I could do some exchanges with. Like I said, I live in SW Michigan, but I go to Grand Rapids, Flint, and the Detroit area a lot also. Anyone interested?

-Adam

Senate will soon hear a bill allowing homebrew clubs to sample beer at some bars.

I'm down with that if I'm around. Send me a message whenever you'll be around. I have several batches that are about to be bottled: ESB, hoppy wheat, cream ale, 1908 kentucky common(my first attempt at a sour mash). I have been brewing like mad to prepare some entries for the upcoming Michigan Beer Cup competition, and I'd love to have some feedback.

same thing: just send me a message whenever you'll be around and if I'm here we can meet. BTW, Drakes does have a good selection, but if you want even more beer selection here in kzoo, Tiffany's has about the most different beers I've ever seen in one place.

Hey Adam. I'm in Kazoo right now and would be more than happy to trade. My parents live in Portage and I am only here occasionally. I will be here for a week or so though. Right now I have an English IPA with me. Shoot my an e-mail at richardjrandall88@gmail.com

I'm from Rockford which is about 20 minutes out of Grand Rapids. If you are ever in GR, I'm interested in trading.
