    I'm looking for a 750mL bottle of Cantillon Mamouche, Geuze Lambic Bio, and Cuvee St-Gilloise (or Cuvee de Champions) and would like to do it all in one trade.

    Was thinking about offering a DB Huna, a '13 or '14 Huna (just one of them and the choice of the other trader), and another bottle like something below:

    '13 Darkness
    Surly 7
    Central Waters 16 (brewery only)
    Any of the Goose Island four sisters.
    Two New Glarus Bombers (counts as one)
    A growler of what I can find from Toppling Goliath
    375mL 3F Intense Red Oude Kriek.
    Black Ops
    '13 Abyss
    '14 Mirror Mirror
    anything I can find around here. I have more in my cellar.

    Do you think that's a fair trade or is it lopsided on my side or the other?

    Sounds pretty fair to me, especially given you're not looking for anything particularly rare/hard to find in terms of Cantillon. You'll have to get the right set of eyes on it though, as I'm not sure how many people have those 3 specific bottles and are looking to trade them all.

    I think you're going way overboard. DB Hunah alone should nab Mamouche & 1 of the others, with you adding something along the lines of Abyss.

    While I think you could land more beers for what you're offering, I think you're doing this community a great service by NOT trying to get a lot more for those beers that you have. Chances are you will gain a great repeat trading partner out of that offering. I say this as someone who happily gave up a lot for a DB Hunah.

    Where in Minnesota are you located? I have a bio and the cuvee des champions. I will be in the twin cities area for a week in June and we could do a bottle share.

    I actually got the trade done. As of now I don't have a driver's license so getting anywhere is pretty tough. Thanks for the good idea though. In theory it would be great.
