    Round 1 was a lot of fun. The credit for the idea goes to BigGene, who organized Round 1, and is too busy to do round 2, with his permission I decided to organize Round 2.

    Let me see your CAN-CANS is all about showing other BA's what your local area has for great beer in cans. We all have great breweries near us that have been or are moving to canning for many different reasons. For whatever the reason is that they can it we want to celebrate those cans and your local brewers.

    Here we go with the RULES!

    1-Min 144 oz (that is a 12 pack)

    2-A minimum of 72 oz must be CANNED!

    3-The remaining 72 oz can be any format you like. Bomber, 750, Growler Just make it good beer.

    4-The box must contain some type of local food item! Peanuts, Popcorn, beef jerky, etc. Cigars are ok as well. A big bonus if this comes in a CAN!

    5-All beers must be produced within 200 miles of your general living city.
    -Exceptions can be made to include neighboring states, say FL can send stuff from GA and LA and AL. If they can't fill a box with Florida brewed goodness.
    -The spirit of the box should be local!

    6-Try to keeps wants, and style likes and dislikes in mind

    All boxes should arrive no later than Nov 30th. This should be more than enough time and barring good reason and communication any late shippers could be subject to be reported as a bad trader.

    Going to limit this to 30, hopefully to make it more manageable for me to pair you up. If there is a huge demand I will add more people as they come.

    If you would like to participate please send me a Beer mail with your contact information, include your name, address, email and telephone number.

    Lets have a good time and get our CAN-CAN on!

    Noobs with a trading history (that I will check) are welcome, But you will have to ship first, (its the only fair way) and you must ship no later than Nov 15th.

    Yes Please!!!

    Mmmm...I picked up a very limited release for my box this AM. Went on sale yesterday, bought last 2 bottles they had today. I'm not opening mine until I ship the other so my greedy side won't be tempted.

    It looks like we have hit a stalemate with interest, I am going to start on a few background checks, and then I will start assigning targets.

    There is still room for a few more, but sign up and get me your info ASAP!

    Hint to whoever my target is:

    Swung by an out of town shop today and found a gem of a beer aging for the past year. I haven't seen him in stores since February, but he'll be shipped off to a lucky recipient soon. Love finding beers that shouldn't still be available sitting on a shelf.
