Worst extra ever.... FFF Biggs Stache, debating on when to drink it.... For science of course
Recently completed an IP trade where I received my first Heady and Dark Lord as extras. I think the look on my face was exactly what he was looking for, thanks Mike!!
Texan sent me a dented Maduro can as an extra.....and I'm in FL, lol. It was a great trade for awesome JK stuff so I didn't care but it made me chuckle, who sends CCB cans to FL traders?!?!
best extra that I ever received was Cantillon Rose and Hardywood Bourbon Barrel Aged Gingerbread Stout on the same trade, needless to say we are regular traders now!
A while back, I got some pretty amazing extras (at least I think so) on a trade - 1 BCBBW, 1 Double Dose, 1 Weyerbacher Insanity BW, and something else (it was a highly rated stout, nothing crazy though)
I was floored - I usually only get (and give) 1-2 extras and let's face it, they are usually just "extra" stuff that you have in your fridge that isn't great but isn't God awful. When I thanked the trader profusely (and felt like a shithead for my measly 1 decent extra) he said "no sweat, just a few things I had laying around." DAMN!
What's the best extra(s) you've received?
@Shroud0fdoom for the 120 Minute and Pannepot Grand Reserva
Trillium Congress St and Jacks Abbey BA Framinghammer.
I just received a Prairie Noir from @fredmugs that blew my mind!!
if only this could be in the trading forum
La Cumbre Project Dank
As long as you enjoyed them, that's all that matters to me!
Got Prairie Bomb, Christmas Bomb and KBS as extras all in the same trade
Umm, all the beers were nice and I was very grateful for the "local" surprises because I am all about that drink local scene, but I really really dug the special Styrofoam liner pack for bottles most of all,...
I got a oude tarte w/ cherries as an extras once I was like whatttt???? awesome
Three floyds Zombie Dust from cpolking. I couldn't believe it.
Pliny the Elder from an IP trade in WI. @bpolglaze . My friend couldn't believe it
an older Tilquin Gueze
from Euro traders Mamouche and Vignerrone
Huna, Four Roses Eclipse, Heady, mexican Cake, Julius, cocoa-nut Fram, to name a few..
Prairie Bomb, Merkin, and Zombie dust from one trade. Best trader ever!
Love me some good extras!
Ask and you shall receive!
Have gotten some solid extras: Zombie Dust, Tired Hands Growlers, sun king Osiris, sunny side up! Little amps coffee stout, alpine bine and vine, Heady Topper. I think my extras are better than the stuff I trade for!
Had a guy send me an separate package for extras because he couldn't find a big enough box to include everything. So what did he spend an extra 15 bucks to ship? A bunch of 10 month old Two Hearted.
I mean damn.
Too many to count. No way I can even live up to the following:
Supplication, Expedition, BCBS, CS Batch 100, Heady, Breakfast Stout, Overrated, Westbrook Gose . . . And on and on.
Made a mention to someone (you know who you are) that my brother in law wanted to try pliny. I get a message that I should watch for fedex in the next day or so . Then this shows up. Sure made me feel inferior. Will be attempting vengeance very soon.
But aren't all beers from regular trading partners mostly extras? I basically hunt down their wants as much as mine now.
I'm thankful for all the extras people have given me. The four that stand out and caused me to actually seek out more as principle in trades are Zombie Dust, backwoods bastard, Bourbon county stout '14, and Bourbon county coffee '13.
Off the top of my head I've received:Heady,ZD,Pirate Bomb!,WWS,Lunch. No extras is cool too!
Heady, SOS, BA Storm Trooper, Florence, Bomb! BCBCS, BCBBW, BCBS, Pliny, Hats, Jacki O's Aphrodite, Sweatshirts and others I'm forgetting. I can't believe these guys call themselves BA's
Did a quick search on this subject and didn't find anything. People are mighty generous on this trading forum and I try as best as I can. What's the best extra you've ever had? I'd say my favorite would be Hodad Porter from Fiddlehead. I've gotten other rarer beers as extras but not knowing about this one beforehand made it that much better. Cheers!
I haven't done a whole lot of trading but @IowaPA was about as generous as they come to add a TG Imperial Golden Nugget and CW ba stout to a deal that was essentially $12 in $4$ brews. Solid trader there, I hope to share some of my Russian River and Kern River hauls from next week with him.
Got some great long time trade guys : Ross/ Ben/ Tom/ Mike/ Mark/ Chad/ Chris, all great trading guys. I don't do much new trading anymore, easier to work with these guys, all generous as hell and great to share beers with.
In our very first trade, for my first Black Tuesday, one of the best BAs I know sent me BOTH Grey Monday and Fume as EXTRAS!!! I was beyond floored!
Not only that, but he remembered our original conversation from over six months ago, despite numerous new messages, and just sent a Melange 1 that I had mentioned SERIOUSLY searching for. He's the BEE'S KNEES!!!
You're my boy blue, errr, Dale!
Not technically extras, but I received an unsolicited box of KBS, FIS, FBS, Rubaeus, Dark Horse, and Short's just because I made a post on a thread here that I wanted to try Rubaeus at some point. I can't remember what I sent in my first box, but I just sent another box not too long ago with 3F Oude Geuze, 3F Oude Kriek, and Abyss, just because...
@Desp59 has dropped me some awesome extras in past trades, but got a crazy generous extra last trade. LOONy, some might say.
Best unexpected extras in a single trade were grey monday, barrel roll barley wine, oude tart with cherries el Segundo citra and few others as extras! The whole trade was for some amazing beers and the box weighed in at 52 pounds!
i knew he would throw in good stuff but not like that lol. So i threw in a vanilla rye as an extra. Thinking it was good but he still embarrassed me with his extras lol.
Exactly. This is the thing.
