For the 2018 Beer Swap I got LJ Dave Polaschek who is not an IPA fan so I got to try lots of different beers! He got local (to me) Saison, Stout, Mango Wit, Golden Ale & Pilsners plus an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Brown Ale from Tampa and a Helles Dopplebeck from Louisiana.

The bottle opener handle was turned from spalted pecan out of my yard and finished with CA glue. The snifter glass came from Ology Brewing in Tallahassee FL (where the 2 big cans are from).

Thanks to Kenny for running a fun swap!

Nice looking opener Grant. Is it just me or did it get thirsty in here all of the sudden?

That looks like a good place to start for the 2019 BBQ swap

I think it’s beer thirty. The pecan handle is a handsome devil.

What on earth! there is no such thing as “close” to beer 30! ...its allways beer 30!

Now on a more serious note:-

1. Nice post Grant! and good job on the opener, also
2. What does IPA fan mean?

Thanks Rob and Pottz got it, my recipient didn’t care for India Pale Ales which are my favorites so I went through rigorous testing (haha!) to choose other styles

I dont wonder now I understand just what the IPA means

1. What self respecting Indian would drink anything else but fire water
2. I have never seen a pale indian they are all red from what I have seen on F Troop and John Wayne movies.

We have some really good mind altering liquids here in Austrailia as well.
