Got some beer mail yesterday, from Boston, super excited. I remember offering some stuff, and sending a box with some Pliny and Almanac in it, maybe answering some questions about beer I would like generally, and here are some Trilliums and Night Shifts and a Lawson's to boot. Not bad, not bad at all.
I like to do it this way, try to remove the stress, and figure that not all trades will be awesome, and I don't have to win every trade, and that people will try to get me good beer, and the whole thing will cost me more than just going to the store but the point is trying beer from other markets.
At the same time, I'm a little burnt out because it is a ton of effort.
How are you feeling about trading these days?
