Dual great trader alert: maximumu13 and JustXBeer

    Feel obligated to show some love to two guys who hooked me up:

    Maximumu13 was actually the first person I ever traded with, it took a while to get things straightened out (due to my noobishness, obivously). Once we got everything set, Max said that he would throw in an extra bottle to even out the $4$. By that, he meant he would throw in 3 extra bombers of great sours and 2 12ozers of brewery only barrel aged goodness. Really defined "great extras" to my new trader self at the time.

    JustXBeer and I completed a trade last week. He was looking for some shelf beers that I can easily access in my area. I sent off 2 4packs and just told him to send back whatever he thought was tasty. Dude sends me a BA Old Numbskull that he saw on my top wants as well as some fresh Nugget Nectar!

    EDIT: Gotta throw Cyclone8 in as well for freely offering up midwest brews I'd been searching for that people seem to hold hostage (BCBCS, Darkness, etc). Nice to see somebody who doesnt want to "win" a trade when he could easily hold out. Couldnt get you in the title Cyc, as I cant edit it now.

    These three are the type of great guys that make this place so cool. Thanks fellas.

    I can second (third?) what is being said about maximumu13. Max is a great guy, solid hookups on extras and is great company to boot!
