Let me know if a house in your neighborhood becomes available for rent during the winter months Toby. I could help.

Will let you know, but it's a small cul-de-sac neighborhood, so typically only the occasional resale.  ;)

And Toby, if you ever get around to sampling those from October I would love the feedback.  I've got my notes on your last beer on a piece of paper in my pocket (really) and can't remember if I ever posted them.

I definitely will.  They're in the kitchen fridge still.  Just had a rash of fresh hoppy stuff since then that needed attention more quickly.  Funny part is that I remember the stouts you sent that are left, but I cannot even remember what I sent you.  lol

Joe Sr, I should be shipping next week. I've got to get to town and procure something local and interesting to toss in the box.

No rush.  Do it on whatever schedule works for you.

I'm looking forward to it whenever it arrives.

I'm pretty stoked that I will be on the receiving end of Mort's beers.  I have heard good things, plus he's got access to stuff in Vt. and Me. not available in Florida.  WooHoo!
For JT in Ohio, I have some treated Imperial Porters (coffee and bourbon barrel), a Brett Old Ale, a sour solara  blend and if you can wait, a German Pilsner.  Is there something you really want from Tampa?  Favorite styles?

I haven't found a style that I really dislike.    I'm definitely looking forward to your beers, they all sound right up my alley.  Ship at your convenience!  I can wait!
As far as locals go, I've had great beers from Cigar City and Saint Somewhere.  Anything you send will be a treat I'm sure.  Send me something you like.

Hell yeah! I'm about to try out a new one here as well: Ireks. I honestly didn't plan having you being my shipper, but I am super stoked about it. German Lagers are my jam.

And Frank, I'll be on the later end of the shipping window but it's only because I'm particularly excited about one of the American Wilds I am about to bottle. I want to bottle some of it plain and try dry hopping a small portion of it with Amarillo if I can figure out the logistics. If I can figure it out with my equipment, you'll get both. :D

I'll be camped out on the porch waiting on the UPS guy on the 4/30  :P

Really. I don't care if it's a little late. I'm just uber stoked to try your beers!

This is my first swap since my hiatus stretched across the last two. So, I'm a bit excited. Looking to be inspired to broaden my horizons a bit with this.

Ive been amazed at the quality of the beers I've received. Mine are mediocre in comparison. We have some truly expert brewers on this forum. I suspect Amanda's beers are top shelf as well.
