Beer Trading

Beer trading has been a part of BeerAdvocate since the late 90s, and has since grown into one of the largest beer trading communities online. Hundreds of trades are conducted on a daily basis by thousands of members around the world.
Why Trade Beers?

Here are just a few reasons why beer trading might be for you:
  • Try beers you'd normally have to travel for.
  • Spread the word about good brewers and beers.
  • Share beers and your experience with others.
  • Make new friends.
  • Finally get your hands on that rare, elusive (whale) beer.
