If this becomes an issue for too many people I will open it up...as it is, I'm kinda bummed that I've excluded nj lol...I had no intentions of this as I kinda thought everyone would have access to a somewhat local canning brewery.

None in ny that you can use?

Only thing sticking out in my head is blue point toxic sludge but that's seasonal. A local brewery "Carton" will be canning one of their beers in the near future so maybe ill get in on the next one. Although I'm not sure if anyone really wants 200oz of one beer. Lol Anyway enjoy guys! Local swaps are lots of fun! I get in on the Ratebeer ones all the time!

Cheers
Ed

Aww man, another thing to get sucked into! I'll probably wait until the next round.

I was a little concerned about the can thing, but just did a little snooping and easily found 4 or 5 PA/MD breweries who can--some with wider distribution than others.

How local/ limited distro does it need to be? I guess just so long as the recipient wouldn't otherwise have access?

Yeah sounds like as long as you can provide at least a few different ones for variation is cool. That way if nothing else the receiver has a few of each. Sounds better to me than 16 of one or 16 different ones.

As long as your recipient can't buy them in their area, its all good. Ideally it would be very local stuff, but that doesn't work for everyone. If you feel you have a good assortment of stuff that isn't distributed very far, join in.

Also, the can thing was just added to provide a little twist. If this is successful then the next round may not be cans. Might just open it up to anything. Or, if we don't get enough people this time, I will have to open it up a bit.

I'm really surprised this hasn't filled up yet. Such a cool idea!
