The final List of Participants:

1) theman
2) jaydog2314
3) coldcrash
4) 427cobra
5) dotjerdot
6) tankcrash
7) bigmike99
8) drphunk
9) ZamaMan
10) Lovesipas

I took some inspiration from keywest and his MAW thread. And double checked with Pappers that this would be ok to do.

I would like to arrange a random swap of local beers with 13 other members here. It would be similar to the "beer it forward" concept on another site. The main goal is to share beer that is not obtainable by the recipient. It does not have to be rare or limited stuff. Just local brewed beer.

Here are the basic rules:
-you agree to ship a minimum of 200 oz., which is only about 16 (12oz.) Bottles
-your selections should be LOCAL to you and not distributed where your designated recipient resides. Use seekabrew if needed.
-your recipient must have their beer by June 7. This gives us 3 weeks to complete.
-you must have 100 posts to join in.

The rest of the details:
The first 13 members to let me know they are in, are in (I am the 14th member). Once I have a list of all participants I will collect their addresses via pm and then randomly select who ships beer to who. You won't necessarily be shipping to the person that is shipping to you. If two participants happen to be in the same area, ill adjust it to change that.

Once I have my list of who ships where, ill pm each person the address where they are shipping. Keep this secret, it'll make it more fun! You will then be expected to ship your local beer, abiding by the rules above. We will all post our awesome hauls when received and enjoy.

The forum is not responsible for anyone that abuses this swap-o-rama, we all take equal risk in participating.

Let me know if you have any questions. Hopefully I didn't miss anything.

Cheers!

sounds very interesting, are you suggesting 16 different beers or any mix & match of local brews to make up 16?

Good question. It does not matter. It could be 3 Sixers. Or three 4 packs plus one 12 oz. Or a giant mess of different beers. As long as its 200 oz, and all cans. Then its all good.

I chose 200 oz because no matter how you dice it, this should only cost someone $30-40 in beer. And I felt that was a good level to start with.

Ideally not all the same beer, that's kind of boring. The idea is to give someone a taste of what else is out there that is really not available to many.

Finches cans their beer, too, and I suspect they're not widely distributed. This looks like a fun swap - good luck!

NJ local breweries only bottle thier beer. Wonder if others will have to not participate for the same reason.
