Three so far. The can thing might be holding people back. I'll wait a couple days. If we aren't full then ill eliminate cans, and just highly recommend cans haha.

1) theman
2) jaydog2314
3) coldcrash

So, if anyone is following this, keep checking back in case the rules change and you are then eligible.

Ok, enough people have expressed interest, but lack cans to use. Bottles are now ok.

Can you ship less ounces if you've hit the $40 mark?

No. The goal is 200 oz. It can really cost as much as you want. If someone wanted to send all bombers, they can.

The problem with naming a dollar figure, we will use $40 for example, is that you can get one guy receiving 2 $20 bombers while at the same time another guy gets 4 $10 Sixers.

Since the idea is to spread local beer and not just throw around expensive, rare, or limited (you certainly can though) beer, naming an oz. figure would help to ensure everyone is getting equal share.

Through my trading over the past year or so I have had many guys include a couple random 12 oz bottles or cans of something local to them that I would have never known existed, let alone known to ask for in a trade. These are the kind of things I am trying to get out there and shared with others.

Hopefully this helps everyone understand the logic behind the guidelines that were set. If you guys disagree and would like to change it up then I am all for taking ideas. Put them out here and we can come up with something that we all agree upon.

I like the current setup it allows for variety of local brews without the 'rare' ones being required. And I agree by setting an ounce quality it ensures everyone is getting a fair trade. I hope this fills up bc i think its an awesome. I've been tracking MAW and i can never seem to get in on it so I like this idea a lot!
