I had an IP trade with Acurtis mom....Oh wait yeah that really did happen.
ehammond1 likes to get weird for sure. Would IP trade with again/10
I had an in person trade where I sat down to wait for the guy at Upright Brewing. If you've never been there, there are a couple of rustic picnic tables, and there was a guy across from me who had a bundle of beer as well. We both kept checking our phones (probably secretly wondering if we were supposed to trade for each other), but the IP trader kept pushing back the time he was going to show up, so we awkwardly stared at each other for about 45 minutes until the dude arrived, threw beer at us, then went off with his friends. Good times.
The first couple times I did an IP trade my girlfirend told me she hoped I wasn't going to get raped and murdered by some nut job. The only reason this is funny is that when I shared this story with a couple of BA's in a local tasting group, they all said "My wife said the same exact thing!" Now all the wives have learned that no rape will occur, because everything is consensual.
Only IP trade I have ever done was for Head(y)
Topper that is.. No lie
Went down smooth as silk !!!
During my last IP trade, I learned there are 2 Babies R Us's within 3 miles or so on the northside of Indy. Depending on your opinion, trading beer in a Babies R Us parking lot may qualify as weird too.
Not nearly as weird as trading babies outside of a beer store.
Love the DLD trades, especially later in the day when you might not remember exactly what is happening. We were on our way to the car at the end of DLD '11 when time froze and I remember handing off some local Chicago beers out of my backpack to some guys who gave me some of theirs. Woke up the next day with some great stuff like batch 9000, Darkness and others. Weird....
An IP trade is as close as I will ever get to feeling the thrill of doing a drug deal in a parking lot.
Did he get hauled off at Darkness Day 2011? LOL!
no, he was callled a douche then he left.
So that's how it is, huh?
Meet me up for a trade, have a few drafts, share an order of nachos(!), but when I run into you now I'm just supposed to pretend like it never happened?!
It's not you it's me. That night while it was magical, well, lets just say I was pretty high on x, and I don't normally do that.
But I'll always think of you when I eat nachos.
ISO: Nachos FT: Magical night
Anyone wanna get weird?
So many people you could be referring to...
You keep eye balling my 5 year old like he is an afternoon snack. You know it's bad when all he says is "That Christopher Walken guy keeps staring at me!!!"
What the hell are you letting your 5 year old watch that he can recognize someone and how much they look like Christopher Walken?
My friend told me of a weird IP trade with a Postal Worker that pulled beer that he was trading from his USPS truck..
Just did an IP trade with baybum and grabbed something to eat. Then he proceeded to crack open one of these:
(couldn't upload actual image from my phone because I'm a dumbass)
What a weirdo
it is in reference to Alewatcher's uncanny ability to do a deadpan impression of Mr. Walken.
Please tell us he does the watch scene from pulp fiction
All mine have been cool but its always looks sketchy when dudes are parked trunk to trunk moving shit back and forth.
This past year I did an IP trade on Thanksgiving afternoon on the NY State Thruway off of exit 21 in Selkirk, NY in a park and ride lot with SteveC32( good dude BTW). I was on my way to my gf's parent's house in VT, and she was with me. Believe it or not, she didn't find it ammusing!
The only thing that makes my IP trades weird are my girlfriend's "Internet boyfriend" jokes.
I did a couple iP trades at huna day and I had 3 buddies with me when I made 1...they were flabbergasted that I was doing this. Took pictures and posted on Facebook as a joke with funny caption. But all my friends are the same"why are U trading beer and meeti g people"....my fiancé said one day "I don't want u to give out our address to people. They could track is down and kill us." I fell over laughing. Maybe if I didn't send box I was supposed to lol. She is a little irrational.
One time I sent my 11 year old nephew Dylan to do an IP trade for me. I don't exactly know what happened but the kid hasn't talked to me ever since.
As long as he brought you your beer it's all good...
Well, I did an IP trade when I lived in Chicago with Pschul4 that went well (great guy), but what happened afterward was weird and somewhat a result of the IP trade.
I went to the South Loop Binny's (which I had never gone to) after the trade and picked up a lot of things, probably $80 worth of beer. I filled up my backpack I had brought and had 2 bags to carry as well, but when I tried to get a cab, the people at the store told me a cab garage was right across the street. I went over, only to find every cab driver was "off the clock." Standing there, trying to figre out the best way to get a cab, I had one homeless man call me a cracker and threaten to stab me, but did it in stride as he was walking into the gas station, and another decided to take a leak on the side of a building next to me in broad daylight. Kind of weird when you don't have a good idea of where you are. I left and it took me about 20 minutes to find a cab carrying about 20-30 pounds of beer.
I never went back to the SL Binny's.
If I were you, I'd blame Peter.
If you're gonna lie, at least make it conceivable. Pics or it didn't happen.
Says the dude spending the night at my house next weekend. My wife keeps telling people that "some guys from the internet we've never met are getting drunk at our house and spending the night."
This is how my wife refers to every BA that texts me.
I told my friends this weekend and naturally they thought you were going to chloroform and rape me. Psh as if it would be rape..
i spotted yeahnatenelson on line at a release and requested a high 5. haven't washed my hand since (my wife is getting concerned...there is this weird green thing that seems to be growing in the spot where said high five occurred).
as for IP trades, i find that you need to involve opening a bottle or sharing a beer at a bar to avoid the weirdness. i've met people in parking lots and even sent my wife and other family to meet people for trades...in the end, beer trades tend to seem way more sketchy than actual drug deals since drug deals seem to be smooth and seem like they have happened before whereas trading bottles of beer is like kids swapping nintendo games...just odd.
Not that they were weird but my IP trades at the Southampton release last year were awkward. Trying to find who you are trading with in the dark, during a huge bottle share and amongst 100 or so beer geeks isn't the easiest thing.
Not exactly an IP trade, but I did do an IDB trade once with MarcatGSB.
never tire of this.
Posted that video on my Fb page, and almost immediately someone responded "People do that!?"
