My how time flies. A fluff piece I started back in sunnier times as a way to have a little fun with some two-week-old, hopped-up beers finally comes to roost in the dreary, wet weeks of fall. The dust’s been blow off, the final keyboard keys have been pecked, and this experiment in blind public opinion is done.
So, just what will the general public think of some of Vermont’s finest when they don’t know they’re drinking it? Read on to find out.

The smoke has cleared, existing deals have been figured out and I now have a final count. It’s time to set my stockpile of yellow, silver and green cans to work as a commodity and trade them wantonly.
3 bundles are available consisting of 1 Heady Topper, 1 Sip of Sunshine, and 1 Second Fiddle with a potential for a 4th bundle from my personal supply should this prove popular and I get the right offer. If you are interested in a single can trade, I might be able to do that as well, so feel free to inquire.
So what do you need to do? Essentially, I’m interested in four things:
- 1:1 trade ratio (I give you 3 different beers, you give me 3 different beers)
- I’ve never had any of the three beers before (check my Untapp’d – drewsbrewsreviews)
- You think the beers you’re trading are good.
- If it’s an IPA, it’s fresh (the Vermont beers are a week old)
That’s pretty much it. You can either get in contact with me via Facebook or contact me directly via email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Include the 3 beers you are offering and a picture of a puppy (just for heart warms). If I get more than a couple offers, I’ll choose randomly to make it as fair as possible. I’ll probably cut this off around June 23rd and get in contact with the traders to set up the details. Yeah, beer!
We got back in PA late last night after a hell of a beer trip. Exhausting, but it really could not have gone better. I’ll do a more detailed write-up of the places and people that made this trip great, but for now, big thanks to Vermont and its near universal embracing of the locally-sourced, “local is better” philosophy. Everyone should be so lucky as to give her a visit.
For those that are interested in getting their hands on some of the beer we brought back, once I determine what is going out to existing trades, I’ll post on my blog and Facebook what I have available. It will probably be a limited few 3 packs (1 Heady, 1 Sip, and 1 Second Fiddle). As to spread it around, and that is the point of this, I won’t be trading for 4pks of any single beer.
As I previously mentioned, I’m just looking for 1:1 trades of 3 different beers that I haven’t had before (check my Untappd – drewsbrewsreviews – for the full list). I’ll provide the details ASAP to get these to you as fresh as possible. More to come soon!
