      I, like I'm sure many of you, love beer. So I came up with what I thought was a pretty damn brilliant idea. Year after year I see posts in this forum asking if someone will bring them a particular brew that is not offered in their area. So why not expand upon that?

      The concept is simple: Bring your local microbrews or area favorite and trade them for something new and tasty. I see it as a great opportunity to try new things, meet some people, and of course, have another reason to drink.

      If this sounds like something you would be interested in, post what you will be bringing! Requests can also be made in this thread. Don't be that guy who shows up with cans of PBR (not that I have against PBR, i love to hydrate).

      Time and location will be announced later, assuming there is enough interest in this. I'm thinking early afternoon on Saturday, that way everyone isn't too wasted already to enjoy the varieties available.

      EDIT:

      SIGN UP ROSTER LOCATED HERE


      We will meet at the Country Inn and Suites parking lot at 4PM on Saturday.

      It's rare to find a girl who likes beer, and even rarer to find one who can appreciate good beer. Any favorite style? I'm an IPA guy all the way.

      Beer is delicious. I think bud light has given it a bad name.

      I love stouts and porters, but they can be a little too much sometimes. The Star Hill I had was a lager I think and it was just so perfect. Heavy Seas has a black IPA that is really really good. I don't generally like IPAs because they are so hoppy but that one was just right. Also summer wheat beers are an easy favorite. Cape Cod summer wheat is the one I really like but it's only available on Cape Cod. Maybe someone will be coming from that far north with a growler?

      Good question. I am coming with my two kids so won't be doing a lot of day-time drinking.

      We are staying at the Riverbend which looks like it has a nice little picnic area by the river, any interest in doing it there sometime late afternoon? (This is my selfish way to be able to participate, btw.)

      I already have planned to bring 2 cases of Belgium beer (Palm and Bavik), but now I think I'm gonna have to bring a couple sample packs for this swap.

      East End Sampler - Pittsburgh
      Penn Brewery Sampler - Pittsburgh
      Great Lakes Eliot Ness - Cleveland

      If they have any new mutiny fleet beers let me know! Keg wise, any of the pyrate fleet beers would be delicious. I'm also most likely bringing a keg.

      @Mr Lee
      Are we doing the six glasses of Sixth Glass at SoWo? We should share this treat. I was thinking maybe some Double Wide or maybe some Dark Truth.

      This stuff is reasonbly expensive, If I'm bringing 12 0z. bottles I would think its a one for one thing?
      For example Dark Truth is an Imperial Stout, and about $10 a four pack, and worth every penny.

      I'm thinking a few 4 packs smoke stack - double wide, 6th glass, and maybe a few tall bottles of seasonal.

      I'm hoping to trade for some legit IPA or some dark ale.
