Beer Exchange

Has anyone ever done a beer exchange? If so, where did you meet up with other participants? Any suggestions?
I read about it somewhere on these boards but cannot find it anywhere. We are not talking about cases of beer, but rather just a sampling of a few bottles.

This sounds like a FANTASTIC idea. Something like a gift exchange for beer lovers? 12 people bring a 12 pack and then exchange & you have 12 killer beers for the trip?

Might have to organize this for our July 20 cruise.

DH and I would love to take part in something like this if one was organized for our cruise! I think the DCL policy for bringing alcohol on board says something about keeping it concealed in a bag or something, so it may be wise for the participants to exchange bottles that are packed in gift bags, maybe with a card or note that talks a bit about where the beer is from and some tasting notes? Also, perhaps the loungers near the adult pool might be a good meetup location.

My DH would think this was the greatest idea ever! Although he did bring some of his favorites, he was very disappointed in all of the beer selections onboard. I will definitely tell him to plan this for our next cruise!

We are doing this on the Fantasy on July 20th. Eight participants will each bring 12 beers. Still trying to figure out where we should get together and exchange the beers. Would love suggestions. Thinking the second day (sea day) prior to 1st seating - maybe around 4.

Cheers!

What a cool idea! Especially if there's beer made in your state or your area of the state that could make it really personal. You could do beer, wine, or anything like that. Sounds so much fun!

On the Fantasy in the afternoon I'd suggest meeting in Outlook for this exchange! It's always quiet and the views are fantastic. It's a very small space but there are tables and chairs set up already. There's only one elevator that goes up there so we find the best plan is to get on an elevator and go as high as it can go, get off, then call for another one going up or take the last flight of stairs. Much better chance of success.

I love this idea!! Way better than a FE - a BE!

As a DH I approve of this awesome idea...... It would be awesome if you got 12 craft brews from local brewery's near one's home town

We are on a three night cruise, so I would be interested in seven person (to get 6 other beers) exchange. I'm not sure I would want to carry around two six packs of bottled brews while waiting for our room.
