Steve, this is a loose group. If you think you can convince someone to exchange two for one... then why not! But, I think you'll have better luck (and get to try more brands) if you just get the 12-16 oz bottles or cans to exchange.

Don't be late
Donna,
Thanks for the advice. Of course, it wouldn't really be two for one in quantity, since it's one big bottle for two small bottles. However, I am sure you are right that I'll have better luck and get to try more brands if I bring beer in 12-oz. bottles, so that is what I will do. There are plenty of fine brews available here to choose from!

Thanks, again,
Steve

Here' we're less than a week from the gathering and I never really did start a beer exchange topic. This is what I should have posted!

Craft Beer Exchange - An "Opener" Event!

Do hearing words such as Sweaty Betty, Flat Tire, Oatmeal Stout and such start your taste buds to salivate? Then this "workshop" is for you!

We're going to do a beer exchange again this year. The rules are simple. Bring a six pack of craft beer, either cans or bottles, a lawn chair and meet at the main gathering area on Thursday evening (16th) at 7pm sharp. The idea is to introduce yourself to someone and use that as an excuse to trade one can or bottle for a different brand. At the end of the exchange you should have six different brands than the one you brought.

Join in the fun, bring a beer brewed in your city/state...it's a good time to show off what the microbrewers are doing in your area.

BTW: Michelob is NOT a craft beer

I think others at the exchange would love to trade for an "import" from Wisconsin too. It's what makes the exchange so much fun, trying a beer outside our typical beverage area.
I became familiar with a beer when I was in Minnesota this spring. Called "Lakemaid" beer and having such melodious names and picturesque names as; Miss Muskie, Miss Smallmouth Bass, Miss Sunfish, Miss Sturgeon, Miss Walleye, Miss Perch, Miss Northern Pike, Miss Catfish, etc (you get the picture) Each half rack has assorted bottles and flavors. Each enjoyable. I wish I had some of that to exchange. I'll bring something I like.

Drat, I only got one six pack of dark. 18 all together. I think everyone will want the dark!

I'll save one of the coveted dark for each person in order of request on this thread....unless we drink them before then!

Nancy
Please save one for me. I get in Thursday afternoon. Caravaning down with Tammy and Reace and other Escapes.
See you then.

Okay, all this talk about exchanging beer made me go out and pick up the kinds I was going to bring for the exchange. I got one from Canada that I had to sample last night and then several other kinds I will need to sample before so I can tell everyone if they are any good.
Isn't it great to have a rational reason to drink more beer?

As a first-time attendee, I have a question regarding the beer exchange: I have purchased several bottles of a wonderful India Pale Ale from Rubicon Brewing Company, here in Sacramento. Trouble is, this beer only comes in 22-ounce bottles (and it is pretty pricey). Therefore, for a nearly equitable exchange, I would need to get two of the regular-size (12-ounce) bottles of beer in return for each of the bottles I supply. If that is something that can be arranged, I'll bring this IPA; otherwise, I'll see about bringing another beer in regular bottles. Those who know how this works, please let me know.

Thanks!
Steve
Hi Steve,

I think I saw six packs of the IPA you like at our Trader Joe's in Reno. Maybe it's at the Sacramento TJ's too.

There's beer drinking at this event!? I'm shocked! Shocked I tell you!

But seriously...

We used to have a Strange Brew party (Doug & Bob movie, spin off from a SCTV skit... Beauty! eh? Hoser!). All the exchange beers went into a large ice filled plastic bin with a hand hole. You had to reach in and take and drink whatever beer you came up with. No peeking. No exchanges. There was some awful beer in there!

Brats seemed an essential part of this party as well.

Hi, Carol,

Thanks for the information. I had the Rubicon IPA at the Rubicon Brewing Company brew pub here in Sacramento and that's where I bought a case. It may well be available at one of the TJ's in our area, as well. However, I have decided to take Donna D.'s advice and bring beer in standard 12 oz. bottles. So I will be bringing Mendocino Brewing Company Red Tail Ale, which is another of my favorites.

Steve

I bring 2 six-packs - one light and one dark. One is for my husband who won't be there for the exchange and the other is for me.

Hi: All...Too bad I can't join in the fun at the Beer Exchange. We did take some local craft brew "Iron Spike" to Vermont and New Brunswick and it was well received there!!! To my great delight I was able to buy a 24 of Leinenkugels at the Duty Free on our return to Canada. They sure know how to brew good beer in Chippewa Falls Wisconsin.
