Fellowship of the Drink XII: The Bad News Beers

Welcome to Round XII of the Fellowship of the Drink swap! (if this looks and reads familiar I copied it from the last round, thank you kind sirs)

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.

Sorry, couldn't figure out how to name the links.

So how does it work?

1. If you're interested in participating, post your interest in this thread!
2. Once you're confirmed as a participant I will keep a running list, the order in which you sign up will correlate to your number in the random number generator. You should 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 5 minutes 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. (Don't be like me last round and not submit a list and miss your first first round pick)
6. On pick day log in 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)
- I am going to leave the maximum cap about 25, subject to change if there is the interest!

- 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 I will decide from there.

-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 the pictured offering.
- Each offering must also contain at least 1 non-beer item; glassware, stickers, coozies, etc of a local brewery you can get creative.
- You additionally may also offer some homemade beverages with the commercial offerings (we all love trying homebrew, lets be honest).
- Whales are not required or expected. Myself included most participants are very happy trying beers they may have never even known existed from small breweries local to you. Lets think about those untappd tings.
- Guidelines are just that, guidelines. Final shipments may, and many times do, exceed the offering posted. Extras are not required.

Offers from the first 11 rounds:

Going to sit one out. I'm away every weekend in may and have no time to go gather good things. I'll come back for the next round.


Quick tip on links that I've shared before if you want to learn. There are two ways to have links show as clean words.
1. On the desktop site, Type out what you want the link to show as, highlight, click the insert link button, and paste the link.
2. Write it out as follows, replace round brackets with square brackets.
(url=insert_address_here)text you want to show(/url)

I just realized that I will be out of town from the 25th to the 31st but I can submit my offer before then. Shouldn’t be a problem right?

That is just fine. Thorrak already submitted his, so as far as I'm concerned, we're all slackers compared to him. :)

I just realized this timing is a week too early. Oh well. I’m visiting Monkish and Mikkeller the week immediately after submissions are due!

I recommend Yorkshire square in Torrance if you’ll already be hitting monkish. I also highly recommend a side trade for some monkish and mikkeller goodies.

Mikkeller recently opened a brewery attached to Citi Field here in NYC - I need to go there at some point soon.

Considering how the Mets have been playing recently, we may be spending a bit more time there than I would have thought how they started the season...

I’m in...

And putting a star next to @Boomer. Monkish is no joke, but pay attention to their Instagram. If you haven’t been to a release before, they announce their release a few hours prior to opening on random days of the week, so you have to be flexible to get any. Cans sell out in a day easy. So worth it though!

I like you guys; but, throwing Monkish in as an extra is predicated solely on my ability to get cans, as @CTownBrewer mentioned.

I have a bit of an insurance policy in place because I have a buddy that lives down there; but, no guarantees.

Noble & Bottle Logic aren’t too far from where you’ll be. Both are definitely worth checking out if you have time.
