I like to bottle and send plastic PET bottles that are 16 ozers.  They seem to work fairly well if I bottle with the beer gun and I have near zero issues with leaks!  Hopefully that is okay!

Actually, sounds like a great idea to me. Much safer for shipping.

I'm in, but I have not brewed a lot lately.  What I have right now is three treatments of the same Imperial Porter - one with coffee and little brett, one that spent some time in a bourbon barrel and one plain.
So if you like this sort of thing, you may want to tell Amanda.
I have some old sour beers, too, to round it out.

I'm going to have to take a pass on this one.  Will be back for the next one, though.

I have to pass as well. I didn't get enough of a head start on brewing this year.

I'm in a similar boat actually. Whoever draws me should get ready for some sour beers and perhaps a strong ale or two...

and of course, heady topper... or Lawson's

I'm gonna be a game time decision. I have beers fermenting and one about to lager. I want to be sure they're 'swap worthy' before I commit. Past that I only have a mostly gone IPA and a really good cider. I'll let you know in time though, Amanda.

I've got my fingers crossed on a couple of mine!  I'd hate to include a "sorry these beers suck" note in the box!

Not a worry guys. We still have a bit of time between now and 3/25.

Speaking of, I should brew a few more things just so I can have a stocked cellar for the spring festival season. And for this swap. ;)

It's beer... How bad can they be?

I have a hard time believing that any of you brew "bad" beers. Some of us brew some beers that don't live up to our expectations. I bet most of you are like me and are your toughest critic.

Send me your "crappy" beers. I'll be the judge of that  :P
