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.

Current Timeline
Friday, March 20th- All photos & final submissions due with style descriptions

Monday, March 23rd- List of offers and order of picks revealed via random drawing.

Wednesday, March 25th- Pick day! 1st pick will be 8:00pm EST. All others will be in a 5min interval, contingent upon the rules above.

Any chance of pushing this out a week? I'll be out of the country for three weeks, and this falls in the last of the three weeks. If not, no biggy, I'll pull out and wait for the next one : )

I'm not tied to the time frame. I don't mind moving it out one week if everybody else is good with it.

It's a cardboard cylinder with previous FotD/HB recipients written on it. I got it long time ago and kept forgetting to send it out. Hope I sent it out to someone and just forget. MIA

Thanks! I was trying to remember who I saw had it recently!
I’ve crossed paths with the pvc at some point too
I've been waiting to get the cardboard since the first time I saw it, almost like a badge of honor or something. I knew I had seen it somewhere recently but hadn't had time to go searching. I don't think I've seen the pvc yet

Fah-kit. I’m in this round. May be my last for a few though as I’ve promised the wife a master bedroom bathroom closet addition this year. Her contractor is a half-wit with a alcohol/homebrewing problem.
I’ll get the pvc back out in circulation.
