Default November '09 chat swap thread

** This swap is closed this thread is for coordinating trades and feedback on swap beers **

The Participants:

Saccharomyces (arranging)
Joe C
c0bra
p4ck37p1mp

The Rules:

Participants will send 5, 10, 15, or 20 bottles to Sacc and will receive as many bottles as they send from other brewers. Homebrew/commercial mix. Anything goes. Everyone should ship by 11/16. As soon as Sacc has all the beers they will be shipped back in the same packaging. Return shipping is to be paid by each participant if a prepaid return label is not provided.

Using a centralized location for the swap minimizes shipping costs, time in travel, and allows you to pay 2x for shipping while trading with others.

Please post what you are sending and when you expect to ship here, along with any special requests for beers you would like to receive. Reviews of swap beers should be posted in this thread.

Unfortunately the good small breweries and brewpubs here in Kansas City (McCoy's, Freestate, Blind Tiger, etc) do not bottle, or at least not in any quantities that I have seen.

And as I have no homebrew to send I'll have to get beer from some of the larger breweries (Boulevard, mostly). Here is my current list:

Boulevard Single-Wide IPA
Boulevard Nutcracker (Winter Seasonal)
Boulevard Bob's 47 (Oktoberfest)
Tallgrass Buffalo Sweat Stout
Flying Monkey IPA

I know there's other stuff from O'Fallon, Flying Monkey, and Tallgrass, but I haven't tried enough of them to feel good about sending them out. As it is I feel bad for not being able to send some Freestate

I'm open to any requests.

Default Sacc

I will be sending some of my Imperial Stout aged in a blue corn whiskey barrel and some of my year+ old tripel. I will also send along some beers from Real Ale brewing in Blanco, TX plus any special requests. You can find the beers we get here by searching specsonline.com.

Special requests:
c0bra wants some Flanders Red. I will send a bottle each of De Proef Zoetzuur and Duchess de Bourgogne for him.
SporkD2 requests winter warmers so I will send some '08 St. Arnold's Christmas beer.

As of right now I'll probably send 10 or 15 bombers. I currently have my IPA and 2 different APAs ready. Sorry for the lack of variety, but it's what I've been brewing. I'm also willing to pick up some commercial bottles too if anyone has any requests.

Does anyone have any brewery that they would like to try but can't get their hands on? I don't know what's available here in NJ that is not available elsewhere. Let me know and I'll see what I can find for everyone.

Off the top of my head, these are some of the breweries that might not be available to someone outside if the area:

Riverhorse, Cricket Hill, Flying Fish, Victory, Troegs, Blue Point, Brooklyn Brewery.

My main craft beer store also gets a lot of:
Stone, Dogfish Head, Avery, Southern Tier, Rogue, Weyerbacher

That sounds good to me, I also would love Southern Tier and all but Brooklyn from NJ (we get Brooklyn here).

I will have some 12ozers of my oak aged RIS, will have to look and see how many of whatever I have in bottles. I can send Terrapin, Sweetwater, Red Brick etc that is local to ATL.

Ok, I'll probably hit the craft brew store this afternoon. So far I'll pick up some Souther Tier for p4ck. Any style preference? They have a decent Imperial Choklat Stout. I'll see what else they have at the store.

Anyone else have any requests before I hit there later?

I got 11 different beers today for you guys, couple things from Sweetwater and Atlanta Brewing Company, Terrapin, Thomas Creek, French Broad, Holy Mackerel, etc all localish to me. One bottle each of my oak aged RIS. Unfortunately I don't bottle much and the only thing worthy of bottling is my IBA but I may not get to bottle that before I ship this out.
