What distributor did you guys do the bulk buy through? We've used North Country/Mid Country with good success.

One of the guys from a local club coordinates bulk orders among some homebrewers.

We usually get one or two pallets filled and shipped in every 30-45 days. We're essentially paying the same rate as the local micros pay, with some variance based on total poundage.

Nice score. I usually pay $35-$40 per bag (usually Crisp) via my local brewpub...

Doooood! I'd be there for a part-timer weekend job as a floor sweeper. I'd tell them not to worry about a paycheck, just compensate me with a (my choice) sack of Malted grain every 2 weeks.

A few months of work a year and you'd be set!

...there got to be a bar nearby, some 'investement" could go a long way.

Flyers on employees' cars in the parking lot, making sure to avoid the execs' Lincolns/Bemmers?
