Well, if I get your name Pooh, I’ll probably send a tote that has compartments that are too small for the bottles and a note on how you can open the compartments up ;-))

I love the idea, but have serious doubts about how well our local ales will travel. Our medium sized town (Bellingham, WA) had 10 microbreweries until recently, but now I think it’s 11. We got ranked within the top ten “beer snobbery” towns in the USA, an accomplishment some of us take great pride in. Most of the breweries have a pub as well, and some serve excellent food. IPAs are all the rage currently.

We also have one that boasts something like 50 rotating taps, but they don’t do their own brewing. And 3 of these places are within walking distance of me, which is nice in that I don’t have to drive. And then there’s Archer Ale House, which also has rotating taps both local and international, also not a brewery. Their motto is “Beer—no longer just a breakfast drink.” But I have to drive to them. My favorite mantra: “Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” Not enough to make me go to church, though.

I feel truly blessed to live in an era of great microbrews.

Bill – you’re in, right?

Dave – you’ll regret it dude. You know there will be some cool stuff!

Rick – that’s too bad you can’t join. I thought it would be cool to mix it up a bit from the usual swaps.

Runswithscissors – I agree wholeheartedly. My area has several breweries and hosts a yearly microbrew festival every year that is quite the rage. I’m sure your brews will travel well if you want to join in!

Steve – by all means join us! It’s always fun and with this one you get to sample some good beer to boot!

If you google how to ship beer, you’ll find information on packing and shipping. Concerning carbonation, as far as I can tell, as long as the bottle/can stays sealed, it will be fine.

No guarantees on what you’ll get but when it gets closer to time to assign names, I was going to suggest everyone post their preferences. As long as your sender knows what you like, I’m sure they’ll accomodate.

Personally, I’ll take the IPAs that Gary doesn’t want. Especially session beers or short-run summer flavors. I really like earthy ones that “taste like dirt” according to my wife. But, I also enjoy wheat beers and lagers. I’m not at all picky.

Definitely join us Yeti! I’ve heard of GLBC. I want a Lake Erie IPA if you get my name ;-)

Can most of you guys buy individual bottles in your areas? We have a chain of groceries that carry all the local breweries and sell “pick your flight” six packs which is where you can pick any six beers. That’s what I do 90% of the time. I just wondered if that’s unique or if you can do that most places.

That’s how it is at some of the breweries here too. But they sell bottles through grocery stores. If you want to ship a growler, your welcome to but that could get pretty pricey! ;-p

I revised the OP a couple of days ago to make it so it doesn’t HAVE to be a tote. mrg could turn a mug and ship it with the growler.

That’s awesome Man. I tried to plan a trip for the eclipse but with vacations and everything going on this summer, it just wasn’t in the cards. I’m an IPA fan too. Got some fantastic ones around here. I especially love summertime when they make all the “special” brews. Local Ballast Point has a pineapple I’m curious about and a watermelon double IPA I’m looking forward to ;-)

And you’ve traveled here on business? Man, you need a better expense account.

I mostly quit drinking three years ago (other than lawnmower beer), so I’m not even sure what’s good MN beer at the moment. Schell’s and Summit are the two I’d probably grab first and then there’s the dozen or so brewpubs around town…

OK Ken, here’s how it goes. Floating floor is done in all three rooms, including carpet and 100,000 staples removed. (Damn I hurt)! All craft fair products finished and it’s next week-end. Photo’s will be posted when my Son gets them back to me. All my yards are cut, and weed eatered. I am officially caught up! (Except appointment with the VA shrinks Monday)

So make that two signed up.

My hope is I get YOUR name so I will have three reasons to gas up the truck, help with your bench, deliver beer, and a lathe! (Damn, how many reasons do I need!)

Lathe’s definitely still waiting for ya. Bench may or may not be. My FIL offered to help when I’m ready so no biggie there either way. But we can use that time for me to give you a terrible turning lesson if it is done! ;-)

AFAIK, all the bottles are pretty much the same size. You should be able to grab a bud or whatever at the grocery store and use it if you want to work on the project before you get the beer. I don’t know which store you go to in C-burg but the Vintage Cellar in Blacksburg is awesome too. And we’ve got a new one here in Roanoke called the Barrel Chest. I haven’t even been to it yet though ‘cause all the local breweries sell theirs at Kroger and there’s one of those near the house and one near work.
