Fellowship of the Drink VIII: The Battle of the Brewers

Welcome to Round VIII of the Fellowship of the Drink swap!

This is a beer swap for members of the continental US to allow you to try some beers from outside your region. Every participant picks a few beers as their offer and then we devise a draw order and go down the list until everyone has picked an offer to receive.

Link to the previous Trades:
Fellowship of the Drink Trading Thread
Fellowship of the Drink II: The Two (beer) Towers
Fellowship of the Drink III: The Return of the (beer) kings
Fellowship of the Drink IV: I'm out of Lord of the Rings Puns
Fellowship of the Drink V: The Fellowship Drinks Bock
Fellowship of the Drink VI: All crying Samwise's will be flogged
Fellowship of the Drink VII: The Drinkers Awaken


So how does it work?
1. If you're interested in participating, let us know in this thread.
2. Once you're confirmed as a participant, PM me a photo of your offering along with a link to something like beer advocate/ratebeer/untappd for each beer so that others can get an idea what they are.
3. A few days before the drawing I will post a full list of all the offerings and photos.
4. On the day before the pick I'll use a randomizer to create a drawing order. I will post a time for each participant that you are "On the Clock" with 5min between participants.
5. If you are not going to be around for the pick send me a pick list order so that I can put your pick in for you.
6. On pick day show up at your time slot to submit your pick. If you sent me a pick list I'll cover you. If you fail to send a list or show up you go to the end of the line.


Rules, there must be rules..
-Continental US residents only
-Must be of legal drinking age (I feel dumb having to actually type that, but prefer not to risk getting thumped by Yooper)
-Maximum of 30 participants
-Participants must also meet 1 of the following 4 requirements:
1) A HBT member for 6 months and minimum of 2 iTrader rating. All trades must be 100% positive.
2) A HBT member for 6 months and 0 or 1 iTrader 100% positive rating, but trading experience verified by a qualified FotD participant.
3) A previous FotD participant.
4) Or just PM me with your personal trading experience, and bribery terms!
- The final rule is the participant must give feedback on itrader of their experience.


Offer Guidelines
- Each offering should be at least 3-6 cans or bottles of commercial beer, preferably local to the sender, but please no more then 86oz total in offering.
- Each offering must also contain at least 1 non-beer item; glassware, stickers, coozies, etc of a local brewery.
- You additionally may also offer some homemade beverages with the commercial offerings (we all love trying homebrew).

Side note, when I was buying some stuff yesterday for the trade I found out I can get Burial Brewing beer out in Colorado. They're getting spoiled being in the middle of the country. It takes way too long for anything to make its way out to San Diego even Los Angeles beers are hard to come by.

Unless anyone has issue, it seems as though you are active in the drinking thread and have a positive trade with @TBC. We could use some fresh blood in this also.

Any concerns from others?
He's good I'll vouch for him. We just did a trade a couple weeks ago. Plus the New Orthodox IPA series from MI are excellent!

I was thinking I'd sit this one out...


Then I thought, "what the hell am I thinking???"


Gotta keep up the streak.




Also, @EcuPirate07, come on back!

I didn't have any time to look a whole lot with my family being with me. I won't be able to participate this round.

I think I need to sit one out. However there's always a chance I'll drink too much and change my mind.
