    I don't have any trade bait. I am just waiting for the bros to make the trade pages searchable again. When that happens, I will start trolling through to make unsolicited offers to unsuspecting noobs. ;)

    I was reading this thread thinking i don't have any tradebait aside from our stast of '08 BCBS(we probably have 8-10 in the house. Local grocery store put a few 4 packs up for $.50/bottle and we bought them all.)

    Then i realized i have a bottle of Rare and 4 Dark Lord variants in the basement.

    But, do you have the 1984 Olympic team card? :cool:

    My best trade bait is Frangelic Mountain Brown. By which I mean, that's the only beer in my cellar I don't particularly want for myself :D

    Excellent in fact. I went to edit in my real tradebait, but I took too long and got locked out lol.

    Basically, probably not trading them because I haven't tried them, but.
