As promised, it's been brought here this year! I know I personally have gotten some amazing beers the last couple years doing this, and seen others get some great things. (I just consumed the nice Southern Tier Creme Brule Stout over Christmas with the family that I got from Bad Neighbor). Here's the basic deal: You live in XYZ region. You probably have some great beers near you that you've told us about and while some of the rest of us would love to try them, they just are not available in our area at all for purchase due to regional distribution! The solution? Send some of these beers out to your fellow Broken Forum members and get some distant beers of your own! "But nixon! I'm not a beer geek!" - Good! Doesn't matter. Do you like beer? Want to try new things? Perfect. That's what I'm looking for! I don't care if you drink crazy rare bourbon barreled beers released only on the third Tuesday after a full moon every other year, or just like your local pale ale. I just want people who like beer and want to try new ones and are willing to share! Here's how it will work. - Post your interest and your region and a few beer styles you like or enjoy. - Send me your contact information/address. - I'll do my best to match you up with someone far away from you. - You purchase at least 4-10 beers of various sizes and flavors from your local area. - Ship it to your beer exchangee, and in return they will send you some as well! - Receive beer, drink it and post pictures and thoughts on the great beverages you've received. Try and spend at least $20-30 on the beers (more if you want), and shipping is usually around $10-15 or less depending on the method. Go wild if you really want to showcase your areas good stuff! Restricted to US members only as I don't have a clue how alcohol shipping works internationally. Must be 21 to participate. Cut off for participation - January 31st. Ship by date - March 22nd.
