    Two guys I trade with regularly are MarkIntihar and GehenHerzog both of these guys are super, overly generous in each and every way. I have had 5+ trades with each of them, each mostly open ended and always amazing. Other people I have traded with that are awesome and always send incredible stuff my way BdubleEdubleRUN, cfh64, samtallica, and dc55110. I was looking for beatification and leschkie was so generous to send me two and a box of other stuff for absolutely nothing in return! Couldn't believe this act of beer advocacy!

    But to be honest everyone I have traded with so far has been great. These guys have just gone above and beyond!

    You forgot Rempo. Mark tricks you into trading and then leaves personal whales in your fridge like its a cool thing to do!

    I've had many great trades, but I'll call out two people:

    Black13 - Our first trade was a Darkness for some '08 BCBS. I'm not sure how many trades we've done to date, but I've probably sent out two to three cases of BCBS. He keeps my cellar full of HotD goodies, for which I am very grateful.

    ablackshear - my former tasting buddy before he moved to Denver. Now he brings me back all sorts of CO goodies, and I do my best to grab him some Midwest rarities whenever they show up.

    There are many other traders I've had the fortune of trading with (kevsal, mikedashg, et al.), so thanks to all.

    Duff27 hooks me up with New Glarus, which deserves praise in itself, but he always goes way above and beyond and throws in some of the most ridiculous extras. Straight up an awesome, awesome trader that I can only hope to one day repay for his generosity. Plus he makes some incredible home brew.

    Cheers, Chris!

    StarRaptor, Miikezombie, BigE90 (and Hoparoundnw2337) TimmyJ21, GuisseppeFranco, and Miamilice. All these guys are awesome traders. Regular trading partners are the reason I keep trading. It is like a competition to see who can send a better box to whom (and I have gotten my butt handed to me many times!).

    I'd have to give a shout out to my most frequent regular trader, Valdieu2. He's hooked me up with some great Maine glassware and beers (as well as clothing and some vintage breweriana) in every trade from the first.

    I should note that I don't "trade" very often but more or less exchange beer. What I mean is, I have friends in distant lands that look for beers they know/think I will like and just send it to me and I do the same for them. I consider myself very fortunate to have these great friends. It is very rare that I do a structured trade.

    So....
    Julie & Brian - Alaska
    Mouli - California
    Mark - Michigan
    Sakina - Florida
    Nick - Connecticut
    And a special shout out to my local beer swapper Jeff who drops crazy beers on me without warning.

    Thank you so much guys and gals. Your friendship and generosity is amazing.

    I've been lucky enough not to have a bad trade partner yet, not many multiple or regular partners, just trade when i feel like it and can afford it. But I would have to say that the awesomeness I've experienced is a tie between Minnesota and Cali traders! Always get boxes that make my jaw drop and grin from ear to ear from the BA's in these states.

    I'll gladly add to the list of great trading partners. Frankly, I'm very shocked that Biglobo8971 hasn't been mentioned at least a dozen times by now... BT's about as SOLID as they come and he doesn't hoard the Surly goodness that keeps me sane. I'll gladly trade with any of the fellas and back them if it's ever needed.

    In a really different position as live abroad and shipping to and from here is a bit of a pain financially.
    Have to thank domestically here in Australia MrKennedy as have done some pretty out there trades to Europe and the US. Also Bluebetty for some of the crazy Euro stuff have seen here
    Internationally---- Forgetfu, Sendsilk, Readbaron, and Baggio for all their help and such wonderful beers.
    Big thanks to Nicks6217. Amazing trader and person. Never would have thought a simple trade for some Maui beers would lead to this. Has done so much for a bunch of us here in Australia.

    I will add a few more. bombadil, BCGabbo, dudeabide, midaszero and 7ways.

    Two guys deserve special mention:

    Avaldivia, my go-to RR guy. He recently was diagnosed as being Gluten Intolerant(Oh, cruel fate!)

    Alexander, great trader and even better dude. His Mom is very sick and deserves some positive BA Karma.

    Shout out to my bud, Carl(cbeer88). Surprised no one else has mentioned him... he's one of the most generous guys out there!

    Jim/JRSD - My Reserve Society trustee. Not only has he been great about getting me my beers this year, but he hooked me up with a FW12 back at the beginning of the year. I've got to find a few bottles to put in the 12 bottle shipper we've been sending back and forth.

    Tim/FunkyMacGroovin - First met him when we were both living in Boston and volunteering at BA fests. Now I'm down in NJ and he's over in Cali and we exchange boxes every once in a while. Just this week a box from him landed with a couple T25s and a Beatification among others. That'll get paid back soon enough.

    I've got a few great regular partners: GuisseppeFranco, weaksauce, Rusty18 and BrokenStones. Lots of great beers have gone across the country in both directions. Those guys have been fantastic in giving me access to beers that I would not have had otherwise. I hope I've done the same for them.

    I'm always looking for more partners. Bonus points if you're across the pond. More bonus points if you're in Belgium, or close. If you're interested in great beers from the Pacific NW, let me know.

    Cheers to my guys, and to all of the other great BA's that have been named on this thread.

    I only have two "regular" partners, csano and Ungertaker. Both have been great by sending me some really cool stuff w/out even caring what they get in return. Other guys who have been overly generous are landhoney and oldp0rt (gave me a Fou Foune as an extra because he wound up not having to pay for shipping to NY from CA because we met IP at the HF Harvest Fest). Another guy who I'm doing my 2nd trade with is DenverBeerDrinker, 12 bottle shipper being traded with only a few known beers. Really looking forward to that one.
