Radio got his free iPod, did you get yours???

Nice thread. I think I'm ready to diversify my collection a bit, and try to acquire some things which don't appear in southern california.

To that point, here's my list: Stuff I have at the moment

There are some things on there I wouldn't want to trade, but there's no real way to mark them as such on that site right now so just ask if you're curious. Also, look at the "Hads" part of the list too, as most things on there from san diego-area breweries could probably be obtained easily as long as they're in season.

I also live about 10 minutes away from http://beverages4lessinc.com/ which beer nerds apparently cream over, so anything on their "in stock" list is something that's a quick trip for me to acquire. It's 20 minutes in the other direction to the Alpine brewery for me, so short of standing in long lines for rare releases I could probably be talked into making a trip out there for something brewery-limited, especially if there's a beer I really want on the other side of that trade in return. I don't really have a "wants" list, mostly any fantastic imperial stouts and quads I haven't had yet.

Since I can't get too many "rare" beers, is anyone interested in setting up a "local" beer trade?

There are bunch of small breweries in New England with very limited distribution, and I'd be up for a trade with other regions' local beer.

Yeah, one bottles and another cans, but only the usual sort of pilsners/lagers get that treatment and those are not really worth trading for.

That said there's also all the rest of CO's vast bounty that I have access to, so.

Maduro Oatmeal Brown

White Oak Jai Alai
Humidor Series (Cedar Aged Jai Alai)
Bolita Brown

very rarely I see:

Marshal Zhukov's Imperial Stout
Good Gourd Imperial Pumpkin (not anymore this year though)
Puppy Breath Porter


The only problem I have is I am absolutely flat broke. I am unemployed, and am in the process of a lawsuit to get disability benefits. I can't really afford to trade at the moment.

I've traded with folks on here before with much success and then got screwed by Mr. Booya!! and have been a touch gunshy since. I digress, I don't need but desperately want a bottle or bottles of Hunapu's. I can post my cellar when I get home, but I can say for sure that I have multiple Dark Lord vintages, a pretty solid compliment of BCS vintages, and some other odds and ends that I would be willing to part with. Expect this post to be edited sometime this evening with the details, also I have access to any and everything that makes its way to Chicago.

Edited to include trade friendly beers:
Dark Lord '10 and '11
One bottle each Goose Island BCS '07-(soon to be)'11
Founder's KBS '10
Bell's Batch 9000

PM me if interested.

I just thought to look for something like the special inserts that came in my old Beer of the Month club boxes, and I found this: http://www.clarkbrewing.com/Clark_B.../Home/Home.html

The things the boxes I used to get would brace the bottom and top of the bottle, like an egg carton does. This looks even better. And the design is so simple I can make something similar for free myself.

SUPER HASSLER - if you want to trade, send me an email at cdgraves at g mail. I'm gonna wait til I get another paycheck or so, but some Great Divide would be awesome.

I've used those, they are expensive and they fall apart. The Rare Beer Club has some pretty clever molded eggcarton/particle paper material that can hold 3 750mls per layer that are pretty clever, but I don't think they would secure as well as styrofoam shippers, which are totally the way to go.

yeah, those inserts don't look so great to me- they could collapse really easily if enough weight was put on the box; kicking poo poo down the stairs just proves that they don't move much within the box. also, no loving way i'm gonna trust a "packaging expert" who doesn't use a tape gun.

Boxes can be pretty resilient. The thickness of the outer box will make the biggest difference as to "crush weight". The egg carton type things won't protect against weight at all, since they effectively make the beer bottles the vertical support.

Also, I think DHL ships alcohol. The BotM came DHL, I remember.

i think rage-saq is talking about something like this, which, from what i've seen, works pretty well. most wine shippers use styrofoam, though. i bubble wrap and double box, but that's because i run a UPS Store and don't have to pay for materials.

those look way better. The inserts I saw before were just braces at the top and bottom, leaving the beer bottles to bear the weight vertically if the box ended up on the bottom of a pallet.

if anybody gives you a hard time, tell them you're flying and need to check the box. jerks. you can order them from uline, but you'd have to order a lot, so maybe ask around at various pack-and-ship stores (they probably don't sell them, but my store gets them from people who don't want to toss them in the trash) or like a U-Haul spot as they sometimes have different materials than a UPS Store.

okay, just looked and found this. $14 isn't a bad price when you consider how much material you'd need to properly pack that many bottles otherwise.
