WHAT: Here's the deal. I'm looking for a newish trader (0 - 5 trades) that has never had De Garde beers and really wants them. Ideally this person will come from a state with sub-par breweries / distribution but I won't be picky. I will send this person a 6 bottle shipper with 4 De Garde beers (2 Bu's, 2 non-Bu's) and 2 more nice PNW beers to be determined later (wanna know their preference). This person just has to provide a shipping label. HOW: If you meet the criteria, post in this thread saying you want in. I will wait until end of day Sunday to give more people a chance to get "in". Then I will randomly select one of the qualified folks by, literally, pulling a name from a hat. I even have the hat ready. I'm doing it this way because A) I think first response wins kinda sucks because not everyone gets a chance; and B) because I don't want my inbox flooded. ;-) I'll notify the winner on Sunday and post in this thread. WHY: I don't venture into the ISO thread too often; I have amazing trading partners that hook me up (see my last post in Hauls and you'll see a small part of the evidence). But there are some things I really want and I can't get from them. I've been trying for some really desireable beers lately and the trades keep falling through. People back out, people try to renegotiate, etc. I got frustrated. Then someone - who requested to remain nameless - offered to just send me the beers as long as I pay it forward. So, sadly, I can't even take credit for this amazing idea. I'm still gonna send them something, but they requested that the majority go to this BIF. There you have it - there's a fairy godmother out there making sure some random person gets great beer. One criteria I'll add; whoever receives this should do a similar good deed down the line. Doesn't have to be next week, next month, or even next year. (Actually, next year seems reasonable. ;-) The karmic wheel doesn't always turn in your favor, but when it does you have a duty to put your shoulder to it and add some momentum. Cheers!
