    Hey guys,

    I've long exhausted my local selection here in New Brunswick. Was just wondering if anyone on the other side of this massive country of ours would be interested in trading locals for locals.

    I'd love to get my hands on some BC beers (preferably Driftwood, Central City, etc. - Granville Island and Okanagan Springs have found their way out here), and others from Alberta (Alley Kat, etc.) , Saskatchewan (Paddock Wood, Bushwakker, etc.), Manitoba (Half Pints, etc.) - even Ontario and Quebec beers are a rarity here in NB and I'd be open to them. Or American beers from the West Coast area that make their way into BC/AB would be great.

    I've got whatever one can get in NB (feel free to check for products), but that consists mostly of Picaroons (2011 CBA brewery of the year), Pumphouse (2005 and 2007 CBA brewery of the year), Garrison, Propeller, Gahan, Shiretown and Unibroue for locals, and a decent selection of UK beers by Fuller's, Innis & Gunn, as well as some good German beers like Aventinus, Erdinger, etc. and some Belgians like Delirium Tremens, Orval, La Trappe, etc.

    I also sometimes find my way to Maine, where the selection is way better, and can easily get my hands on many Founder's, Allagash, Maine Beer, Shipyard, etc., etc.

    Anyway, hit me up, and let's figure something out.

    Hey man! Right now a lot of the traders are waiting until the weather warms up, as the risk of beers freezing is a real issue- if you posted this thread again in the Spring I'm pretty sure you'd get some bites, especially if you had some Maine beers to offer too.

    Yeah eh? I'll keep that in mind. Might you be among the biters?

    I would love to trade. I'm in Alberta so I have quite a few different Alley Kat bottles to trade. Especially if you can get some of the US beers you mentioned!

    I would be interested.
    PM me what your looking for.

    I also have acess to quite the collection of american beers, being just across the border in Niagara.
    However, with your proximity to maine whats your access to say... lunch IPA from maine brewing company?

    However, I do agree I could see the weather proving to be an issue.

    @ westbray: I would be interested in getting some alley cat brews PM me
