Can't help you there. Can you get St. Arnold's Endeavour up there? I could send you one of those.

My favorite Texas craft brewer is Jester King. http://jesterkingbrewery.com/ They don't do an IPA though.

Its all good I appreciate it I have just really wanted some of those mid west brews for awhile and unless I offer heady no one bites on them

Speaking of, I'm drinking Shiner Bock on the recommendation of a friend "it's AMAAZZZING I can't believe you've never had it!" I will never take his advice on beer again.

I wasn't being sarcastic. People, with very few exceptions, don't want to spend an additional $10 -15 on top of the cost of the beer trading off the shelf IPAs. They are usually extras...

I had other beers i was willing to trade as well that was the one I felt people would have been excited for.

Those are all pretty much off the shelf beers. Many traders, myself included, don't want to spend a lot of money chasing off the shelf beers. If you offer something more rare and package one of those for a Surly or FFF you'll do better.

I dont have a large enough closet to trade the beers I have been aging. So your basically saying growler fills only of local stuff will do the trick for something that is pretty accessible in MN?

I got those beers for a BIF i was going to do but the person organizing is taking their sweet time so I was trying to move some.

No, that is not what I am saying. I am saying that you should trade something rare and cellerable for something else rare and cellerable and say that you would like to trade with an MN or IL trader with access to Surly or FFF so you can also swap IPAs in that same trade.

It's all just beer, now play nice, Adam. In fact, I actually need some Furious in my life...

ha. Shiner Bock has a special place in my heart, really. It was the first beer I ever loved, but I've outgrown it. Still, I hope it's always around.

Yeah, I just think my expectations were too high. It's basically Texas' version of Yuengling.

Firestone Union Jack and Sculpin are go-to IPAs for me. Always reliable, assuming they're fresh.

Tooch, I can hook you up with some Furious now that I'm in Minnesota. Moved from Iowa in May. I'll go inspect the bottoms of cans tomorrow. Pulled a 2 days young batch a few weeks ago. Mighty tasty.

Been a long time since I've been on here.
