Welcome to Round XV 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.

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. If you don’t send links to your beer offerings, I will confiscate all packages that you send.
3. A few days before the drawing I will post a full list of all the offerings and photos and 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.
4. 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.
5. 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. If you show up late, you can get into the pick after the person currently picking.

Rules, there must be rules..
- Continental US residents only
- Must be of legal drinking age

- 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.

-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 than 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, let's 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. Let's 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 previous rounds:

Hey @mullet6577 , here is the new FotD thread.

I will vouch for @mullet6577 for I have a side trade going with him right now. I will be posting feedback for him by the weekend for his shipment should arrive to my doorstep this afternoon. It's always nice to get some new blood in the game! Welcome to the rabbit hole called FotD!

As much as I’d love to join this round, I may be out. Last minute trip to Vegas for a family emergency is trumping beer budget for now.

I think I'm just going to pick one local Brewery that doesn't distribute out of Florida and get multiple beers plus some swag [emoji41] to work the flight theme!
