    a while back I did an IP trade at Captain Lawrence for a Hardywood Bourbon Cru... that day I met Shilt who was up from VA and we did a trade w/ some great extras included... he also opened a Gingerbread Stout to share with me and others at CL

    a couple of weeks ago I was prepping to leave for GABF and I arrived home to an unsolicited bottle of Hardywood Farmhouse Pumpkin... really cool right?

    so last week I put up and ISO... Shilt notices it and has the beer I wanted... I did some side trades to get the bottle he wanted and sent him some extras trying to pay him back for his prior generosity...

    low and behold, I get home today to the trade that I thought I was going to repay him and give him a better box than expected... what does he do? He slams me with a vintage DL as an extra...

    if you EVER are thinking of trading with Shilt... please don't hesitate. He rocks!

    so Sam (Shilt) and I have become pretty regular trading partners... trying to send each other stuff that we know the other wants... Sam knew I wanted more GBS and a BA GBS... and he kills me with this


    first the DL 2010 as an extra and now this??? I'm going to get you back Sam!

  3. Met Sam at the BA GBS release. Really nice guy and he's definitely not afraid to pop some nice bottles with new folks!

    he's really a top notch BA and what I think every BA should strive to be...

    I have only traded with him once but was quite impressed by his generosity. I'll just say this...he sent me 3 awesome beers and basically said send back whatever you want. Great guy and and BA.
