    I no longer live in WI and only have access to dark horse, new Holland, shorts brewing, and bell's(plus some smaller breweries). I use to pretty much just use NG for any trades, is there enough of a interest for these beers out there? Never see ISO for them.

    I always hit up a few places in da U.P. to grab some Shorts. I think you could use that as a starting point. If not, think about using GUS the chainsaw as leverage :slight_smile:
    Enjoy it up der in da U.P., eh?!?!

    Jolly Pumpkin sees pretty wide distro through Shelton Bros, but their special releases are worth seeking out :slight_smile:

    Kind of figured that, thankfully I still have to run to wisconsin twice a month so can still stock up on NG

    You have plenty in MI, I have done a few trades with some michiganers, and did a beer tour there earlier this year. Depending where you live there are some brewery only beers that are always around (at dark horse,bells). growlers at oddside. Don't forget, Kuhnhenn beer. Greenbush is also picking up steam. And how can anyone turn down any of the new shorts beers. If you ever want east coast beers feel free to send me a BM.

    I have yet to see Kuhnhenn around here, I'm in the houghton area, keweenaw brewing is in town, never been a big fan of them. Let you know dq, taking a break from trading but plan on getting back into the swing of things next month

    I absolutely love the UP - Porcupine Mtns is one of my favorite places on Earth - but didn't realize anyone moved there anymore.

    For 2014 I would look at Short's as good trade collateral. A) They have cleaned up their consistency issues from what I can tell B) They don't distro outside MI and they are defiant that this will never change C) They are innovative - you want beer with Cheeto's in it? Short's probably makes it. D) The list of what they will bottle in 2014 - something like 40+ beers - is staggering and exciting. I think as a result of these things there will be increasing positive buzz and demand for them, maybe not to score whales with, but to get really good boxes in return.

    Good idea, not big into whale hunting just like to have something that can snag me bottles from east/west coast. Yes, crazy people like me move here, now that's it started snowing my girlfriend has started to question her choice of following me :slight_smile:

    I looked on a map where you live I don't think you can get much further north in the states...can't believe you already had snow. When I was visiting shorts there was 8" forecast, I called to make sure they would be open before driving, they just laughed, and said of course, its only snow.

    I see trades now and then for a 6 pack of a shorts beer...if you posted a mixed 12 pack, you will definitely get plenty of us from the east coast.

    I dig New Holland. I'm a recent convert to their well-known stouts....seems like people have known about them forever i just never had them til this summer.
    I'd trade for their stouts, DIPA or anything in barrel from them.
    I'm into Shorts too.
    If you ever want West Coast stuff let me know...
