    First I want to mention 2 great trading partners, one on each coast:

    aekoops in CA

    csbinva in VA

    Both are regular partners who do a helluva job filling a box and letting me enjoy it.

    But I also want to mention 3 great drinking partners here in Michigan. 3 guys who without them I'd still have a limited amount of beer that I would have been able to try. These guys go out of there way to trade for some great stuff and have zero qualms about sharing with the other guys in the group. They brought me into their group a little over a year ago when I didn't have much to share, but they didn't care. I hope that in the time I've known them that I have been able to return even just a percentage of the great stuff they've shared with me.

    Romulux - Ron
    camil1mj - Mike
    tjohn2401 - Tim

    If you ever get a chance to have a beer with one of these guys, I highly recommend it!

    Wintbs379 has gone from being the student to the teacher in our group. He also deserves a big thanks. Not only as a beer drinking buddy, but as a trading partner as well. He is alway more than willing to do quick swap with some of his awesome beer from his cellar. A true gentleman and a scholar even if he does like the best running back U of M has ever had.

    I don't trade to often, and most of my trades are with friends that aren't on BA. Even so I have some great partners that I'd like to call out.

    Holland - Awesome BA that I trade with every time he flies into Chicago. We always try to hit each other's wants and he always goes the extra mile to get some good stuff. We've done a bunch of trades and each one is better than the next.

    Gushue3 - This guy was my first trade and we've done a bunch since then. Always a stand up guy and we always try to get awesome boxes out to each other.

    There aren't too many BAs that I have done more than 3 trades with (for one reason or another) but those that I have, I have done so for a reason.


    I would put my own beer on the line to vouch for any of these traders.

    Gotta give a shoutout to my amazing NC trade partner, n2185. Last year, I sent him a surprise box right when Abrasive came out. Two days later, I got an unexpected box from him. Huh? Turned out we'd both sent surprise boxes, and they'd crossed paths going across the country. Awesome. And he hooks me up with amazing beers. He once threw a Westy 12 in a mixed box (one of those "send me whatever" trades), covered with foil and labeled as "homebrewed rice lager".

    laymansbeerfan never ceases to amaze me with what he sends and the generosity with which he trades. His recent birthday box to me knocked me on my butt it was so cool.

    schwaeh is a great trader and the first guy to officially trade with me here on BA. Always a special place in your heart for your first...

    sstorck hooks me up with awesome RS beers from down in Rue-land, so I keep getting to try INSANE beers that I never thought I'd have a chance to get.

    All of these guys are awesome and worth the price of admission if you ever get the chance to trade with them.

    Dude is ridiculous; similar story about visiting and sharing beers. Guy is super generous and will always help anyone out. He also specifically holds things aside b/c he wants me to try them.

    Scotchboy is a kickass regular partner too. Never a worry about what he sends.. always kills it. Guy specifically holds things aside b/c he wants me to try them.

    Spdkilz wrecks me. Super generous and goes above and beyond to help.

    MikeyMikee just makes me feel like a jerk sometimes. Fantastic with hooking me up if I ever need something in his area.

    ratedz can make it seem like I'm sending BMC light in comparison sometimes. Man is crazy generous and specifically holds things aside b/c he wants me to try them.

    I'm lucky as hell to know the people I do. Cheers guys!

    Adam's of the world unite! FPM (aka the other Adam) is an excellent trader of beer. I'm glad he's kept track of how many trades we have made, because I lost track a long time ago. Boxes show up, boxes get shipped back refilled with good beer. Unpack, repack, and repeat.
    I'll also give a shout out to my other Colorado connection, waltonc. Everytime I think the beer I've sent him will be close to equaling what he sends in return, he throws in some ridiculous extras. These two guys get first dibs on anything I pick up. Having awesome regular trading partners is one of the things that makes this little hobby fun.

    Top of my list is coreymcafee. Even considering he is a fellow Denver local, I have yet to ever see him that he doesn't hand me a freaking beer off my wants. (Friday was a Berserker!!!) That doesn't even cover our trades. ALWAYS overdoes it.

    Also, he's been mentioned multiple times here, but it is hard to consider Woodchopper a trader. He is more of a beer SENDER. He just sneaks questions about favorites you might want to try, and then sends you a box of 12 including 2 of that beer. It's not really trading. That guy SOOOOO gets it.

    I have to give credit to the guy I trustee for Crooked Stave, jp7161. Freaking guys says "Just sending you a couple thank you treats" and then the box makes me feel like he is MY trustee. Great great trader and guy.
