Icrontic Beer Traders

MAGICMAGIC Doot DootFurniture City, Michigan Icrontian

We have a pretty good spread of folks across the country and several people close to some top notch Breweries. Post up what you're looking for, what you have access to.

Gots:
I'm in West Michigan, and get all the Founders, Vivant, Perrin, Oddside and GRBC beers. Try to get to the Darkhorse, Bells and Saugatucks when I can.
Next big release in the Area will be KBS in March, Hazels Nuts in April.

Wants:
Stouts, Barley wines, Belgians, BBA stuff.
If anyone is in Southwest Michigan and has access to Greenbush that would be sweet as they always do releases at lunch during the week and its really tough to get down there.
Boulevard is putting out a Coconut version of their Imperial stout in February that I'd love to get a couple bottles of.

    What're the laws on sending this stuff across state lines? Would strongly consider tasting some of these fabled Michigan beers for my SoCal stuff. Could theoretically get you anything south of The Bruery in Fullerton, CA. SD county being the easiest stuff to acquire.

    I got NorthEast ohio. So Great Lakes and Hoppin Frog are the big names as well as a couple up and comers like Platform.

    @NiGHTS technically illegal but as long as you aren't putting alcohol down on the packaging slip then there would be no issues.

    If there are any Cinci people I need a stream of Rheingeist and Madtree.

    Do not ship through USPS. It is illegal as @Karma said and on the slim chance you are caught you can be fined and charged with a misdemeanor. Ship through UPS or FedEx. With them it is simply against their policy, not a crime.

    google search came up with this

    Generally speaking, here's what you'll need to ensure if you can ship alcohol: An adult must sign for the package:FedEx and UPS both require that a package include the Adult Signature Required option, which states that an adult over the age of 21 must sign for the package in person.Sep 30, 2014

    Also I'd probably be in for some beer trading, though probably not for big trades with high frequency. Beer trading is a lot of work and takes a ton of time and money (and it stresses me out hardcore once the package is on its way).

    I have access to some damn good west coast beer. Firestone Walker, Russian River, Drakes, Lagunitas, Fieldwork, etc. etc. The rare stuff is pretty easy to come by out here (though Pliny is always a challenge unless you're straight up driving to the brewery).

    since we've (USPS) contracted with Amazon Prime, I'm hearing rumors alcohol will soon™ be on the white list for us.

    everytime someone mentions amazon prime on here, i always think for a second that they are talking about @primesuspect. so for a second there i thought @primesuspect had gotten us a USPS contract for alcohol shipping.

    I'm from Cincinnati. I live about 20 minutes from pretty much every brewery if anyone wants/needs Ohio beers. I think there is a store down the street with about 6-7 different Jackie-Os.

    I'll see if I can get a list of Mad Tree, Rhinegheist, Jackie-Os.

    This is within driving distance, anything you find there I can get if you wanted an actual list.

  • MAGICMAGIC Doot Doot Furniture City, Michigan Icrontian

    Anyone have access to Bottle Logic? I'd like to get my hands on some of their special releases if possible.

    Since we live in Michigan and have some weird importation laws, I can't get my hands on Allagash Curieux easily.

    If someone is able to procure a couple of bombers and is going to Epic this year, I would gladly unload them from you for cashmoneys.

    Anyone down by Bells Brewing in Kalamazoo today? They are releasing Barrel Aged Expedition Stout. I'll take anything anyone can get. Will paypal. Let me know, thanks, @Ryder

    I'm checking a bag for Expo, so I can bring a couple beers to share as I typically do. Any West Coast requests (that aren't horribly impossible to get)? I've got a 2015 Pugachevs that I might bring. Access to all sorts of Firestone Walker barrel aged stuff too. Can probably get fresh Pliny the Elder, FW DoubleJack, and other awesome double IPAs. Thoughts?

  • DontCallMeKelsoDontCallMeKelso The one they call... Kelso San Jose, CA Icrontian

    @UPSLynx I would go for a Rye Double DBA if possible :troll:

    I'm always down to take a bottle of Parabola off your hands if you got some. Just lemme know and I'll have cashmonies for you. Might have a friend interested in an Elder. When do you need to know by?

  • CBCB Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Der Millionendorf- Icrontian

    Anyone need anything that they can only get in munich? I should be able to fit a bottle or two into my luggage.

    I'd love to try something fresh form a local German brewer, a kellerbier would be amazing. Not sure how many small local joints bottle though. Also, not sure how Cantillon Brewery beers sit around there, but something from them would be great also.

    I'm always down for a Doppelbock or schwarzbier.

    I should clarify - the ask in question was for a bottle share at Expo. I'm not looking to trade at Expo, I just wanna bring some things to open and let others try while we're there.

    Parabola, unfortunately, was kind of a bust this year. They limited to 2 bottles per person at the brewery, and stagnated bottle shipments to local retailers. I've only got two at home and for now they're gonna be cellared.

    Elder is easier to get though, so I may see what I can do after I decide on what to bring.

    Ahh, I gotcha. I'm down either way.

    Such sads. I'll keep an eye out. Love that stuff.

    I was thinking of this for a friend, since I don't do IPAs, so whatever works.
