    Sorry if this has been asked a lot, but I'm new to trading and I was wondering what CCB values are? I'm trying to get some Barrel Aged Beer nothing super rare, just stuff I cant get in FL. What could one get for Jai Alai, Maduro Brown, Winter Warmer, Guava Grove, Bolita, Dos Costas Oeste aged in Cedar and some of their other seasonals. I know they aren't super rare or hard to get, but any info would be great. Thanks.

    Or you could just throw up that Whiskey BA Huna you have, I'm pretty sure people will want that.

    I am sure you could trade any of that stuff for some Dragon's Milk.

    Why don't you throw up some of that Kentucky Brown Ale on the FT forums, it'll get something done.

    Cigar City has pretty good trade pull, even for the more common stuff. You won't land anything super rare with Jai Alai or Guava Grove, but you can pull shelf beers from most of the country. Fortunately that includes a good amount of barrel aged beers, so if you're not being too picky, you should have a pretty easy time of it.

    I hear local for local trades are always a good way to get started in it.

    I would try "FT: Cigar City, ISO: "shelf" BA beers." You should get some hits, as there is a good amount of BA stuff that is easy to track down.

    Agree..I just traded some DRIPA (growler),Head Hunter,and He'Brew nut brown (he likes nut browns), for some Oak aged Jai alai, Bolita,Humidor double black..

    You should have no problem getting shelf stuff from anywhere at all..

    Since you're fairly close to the brewery you could trade off some of their growlers for rarer items.

    What xnicknj said, Not that they are doing the whole Growler Tuesday thing. This week is was some Chocolate Chip pancake beer that I would have loved to taste. Also I do L4L and $4$ trades with CCB all the time. Pretty easy to do.
