How do we get some of the beers for the show? I trade for them. Back when I started beer trading, it focused more on trying beers that did not get distributed to your area. Yes, it usually involved festival and/or brewery only barrel-aged beers, but they were attainable (basically) as long as you attended the festival. No F5-ing or being part of a beer membership. One of the nice regular things about trading happens when you expand the trade.
