    I know these threads are usually reserved for the trade forum, but no trade went down so its going here for all BA's to see. Bros if this needs to be moved please move it, i just want to make sure an awesome ba gets the recognition he deserves.

    I don't know why, but the other day BobZ sent me a message with two requests: 1) my shipping info 2) don't ask any questions. I then get a follow up message with a tracking number. And then I came home today to find these on my front door step:

    I have no idea what I did to deserve this or how I can repay this random act of beer kindness, but I will try my hardest to keep my beer karma square and send him back something in return. Tonight I raise my glass to BobZ and I encourage all of you to do the same!

    PS- BobZ I now have your shipping info. Your porch is getting covered in snow today, but it will be covered in beer soon enough ;)

    Very cool. Recently jzeilinger did a very similar thing for me, sending Nugget Nectar and other great beers. I love this place and the people that make it so great!

    jzeilinger was one of my first trades(not that I trade much) and I think I may send him some Hoponius Union again as he loved that beer.

    If you poured all of those stouts into a punch bowl and served it at a party with a ladel that would be epic...

    Beer it forward with everyone in this thread right now. Seriously. Beermail me if you want in. I want to keep Bobz's mojo flowing. Additionally, I think "spontaneous-beer-it-forwards" needs to start happening on this site; where someone just announces it because they are struck by the moment and then it happens.

    Everyone agrees to send one beer that they really want to share with someone else. You can send as much or as little as you'd like. Send a beer that you absolutely love and want others to share the joy of. Beermail me if you want in. I will start it and send the first brew. The last person to get in on it will ship to me to complete the circle. I will close it down when I feel like enough people have gotten in on it.

    Full disclosure I have never organized a beer it forward, and I am not really sure how it goes, but I think what I have proposed above is close enough.

    PS: I'm in the middle of a major blizzard so if I stop responding I probably lost power.

    There is a forum for that, but it never ends up being just a beer. I ran an LIF recently but haven't joined a BIF yet.

    Awesome move.
    I urge everyone to commit a random act of beer every once and a while.

    I had a similar package full of Heady Topper in it. Again, courtesy of TotallyHosed. This isn't the first time I've mentioned him tonight either... lucky bastard!

    I am going to crack a pannepot in honor of BobZ. Having dealt with Bob before I can attest to the fact that he is truly a great beer advocate.

    Depends on timing, I have some boxes on the move and others I am still putting together. It is not a good idea to have too many going on at once.

    The world needs more people like Bob. Always be kind to your neighbor. I think I'll drink one of my last 2012 Bigfoots tonight.

    Fuck that noise. You're in. You're the last guy in the list. We'll stop it with you. No need to send anything to me. I don't want anything in return. Beer mail me.

    Ok, first, I would have to go a long, long, way to be as generous as you Doug. If anything, I was following your lead.

    Second, I have always been blown away with the generosity of BA's with regard to the few trades I've done. I felt like it was time to drop a nice box on a deserving BA, from what I know of Matt he definitely fits that bill.

    Third, I won the Avatar LIF, due to my awesome dog Molly, and wanted to do something to pay it forward.

    And... finally.... I'm off beer until May (haven't had one since Jan 4th), not alcohol related as I've had some single malt, but "I've gotten way too fat, too fast, and need to change course" related and I want to hike this summer without wheezing and then having a stroke....:)

    Thanks for all the kind words, but I'm just in the pack, there are many people in the forum ahead of me on the generosity front!
