    I'd like to find out what people are planning on bringing for the swap.

    Here in Michigan, we have a handful of really great breweries that either are not distributed nationally or regionally... or happen to have a couple of VERY limited release High Gravity Stouts, IPA's and similar that are nigh impossible to obtain.

    I have access to some of the following:

    Bell's Black Note 2013
    Dark Horse Bourbon Barrel Aged Plead the 5th 2012
    Dark Horse Double Crooked Tree

    I would be willing/interested in trading for some brews that are equally as difficult to obtain or for a couple of other brews of really good, but generally unavailable in the Midwest.

    Some other breweries wares that I will be bringing down with me will be from Brewery Vivant, more Dark Horse, more Bell's, some Founder's and some Kuhnhenn's Brewery.

    Most of what I will be carting along will be High Gravity (8% to about 14% ABV(, well rated and very flavorful brews.

    What are you bringing? What would you be willing to trade for some of what I'm bringing? What would you like to see brought down from Michigan that isn't available anywhere else?

    I plan on bringing some stuff from Elevator and maybe Columbus Brewing Company. We will see what else I can find. I am a huge IPA fan, so I always can find some interesting stuff around here.

    On a side note I am a huge fan of Shorts Huma Lupa Licious and The Liberator. Not looking for a trade on these but if you can get a six pack of each I will gladly pay you for your time + the beer...:beer

    I enjoy some of the better IPAs, especially if the goal is to aim for a more pineapple flavor instead of an overly bitter mouthful of plant leaves flavor. :Thumbsup:

    My big thing are stouts, wee heavy, sour ales and barrel aged.

    The group from Texas will be bringing Texas beer - there are lots of micro breweries down here and we have some really tasty beer - probably not so much Shiner but some other Texas Brews!

    Like what brews? Have some of them look up what I'm bringing and post to this thread...

    I'm willing to bring some very top notch stuff that I have heard I could realistically sell for upwards of $20 to $40 for a 12oz bottle, based upon both the quality and the rarity of the brews.

    I'm looking for similarly rare brews from other parts of the country.

    So here is what I am planning on bringing so far:

    All from Elevator which is a local brewery here in Columbus, OH

    Horny Goat- Barrel Aged Porter
    Wicked Goat- Barrel Aged IPA
    Bully Goat- Barrel Aged Red Ale

    I can also bring if interested from Elevator Bar Bar which is an extremely limited/highly sought after Barley wine.

    All of these are sold local only and the Barley Wine is one that sold out in an hour.

    Bar-Bar sounds very interesting. I would be interested in that. I do have a handful of similarly limited release barley wines resting in my cellar.
