Mar 2012 ian2000gsxr Well, I posted a long three paragraph bad ass rating but apparently I am limited by space. I will email you that copy.... For everyone else I will try to be as simple as I can.

May 2011 Puddintane Josh is simply one of the elite traders on this site. Even better is the fact that he is one of the elite people. Even though I asked him not to do it, he came through with a DLD ticket for me for nothing! The only thing I had to do was show up. Seriously, how ridiculous is that? If you have a chance to trade with Josh, do it. If you have a chance to share a beer with Josh, bring something mi

Josh! You canít go wrong trading with him. CAN-NOT-DO-IT

He sent the agreed upon DL í10 and then bonused the entire Dark Horse stout series 1-5, 3 Alpha King, and the surprise beer was a freakin Cuvee de Castleton which iíve been trying to land. Awesome man... just awesome!

Normally I wouldn’t have much trouble procuring the stuff for a 75 dollar trade, but crazy girlfriends and family stuff went down. ST was super understanding, shipped promptly, packed well, everything was pretty damn awesome. Fantastic trader and a helluva nice guy.
Mar 2008 BlackForestCO Josh answered my call for the coveted PBR Day limited release wax-dipped PBR. Then he threw in some awesome stuff like a Cave Creek Chili Beer and a broken Dreadnaught bottle (purposely), as well as throwing in some crappy stuff like a fresh Dreadnaught, Dark Horse Black Bier, Kalamazoo Stout, and a Barley Island Black Majic. Packed great and shipped quickly. Best trade ever.
Mar 2008 Cletus Josh hooked me up with excellent beers from Upland, Mishawaka, Mad Anthony, Oaken Barrel and Barley Island. Josh is a great guy to trade with and we’re already setting up our second trade. Thanks again!
Mar 2008 GMCC2181 Once again Josh hooked me up in a major way. ST choklat, GI BCS, GI Nut Brown ale, GI DIPA, and two Dreadnaughts. All good brews, good communication and packaging job. JOSH IS THE MAN!!
Feb 2008 mcbackus i got a great fast ans easy trade form stfun. he sent the agreed apon 05 pink wax threee floyds behemoth a nd 3 great bonuses. a 3 floyds robert the bruce, double bastard and a thirsty dog old leg humper, cleverly disquised as aold viscosity. all those beers are beers that i got screwed on in a trade. well done by a greatr trader, hope it happens again.
Feb 2008 thooper41 Dreadnaught, Behemouth, Expedition, Bourbon County, Hopslam, Siberian Night, also tossed in some extras. Kalamazoo Stout, alpha king, gumballhead. shipped out quick and nothing broke. thanks for everything.
Feb 2008 CP Did an in person trade with StFun, Sam Adams Cream Stout for Hop Head. Bottle was in good condition and had no problems with the trade. I would trade with again.
Feb 2008 mcferc4 What a great first trade! I’ve been searching for Three Floyds’ beers for a long time now... Josh totally hooked me up with four of their brews (including a Dreadnaught bomber) and a GI Bourbon County Stout. For an extra, he threw in a Thirsty Dog Siberian Night! The package was extremely well put together and only took two days to get here! (IN to NC). An awesome trader.
Feb 2008 GMCC2181 I feel like a kid on X-mas when I recieve a package in the mail from this guy. He hooked me up with Bells, Goose Island, Dark Horse, Three Floyds and a couple others. These were all top rated brews and he didnt charge me a dime. Anyone else would of wanted some rare beers for what he gave me for free! I cant find any of these beers in my local area, so that makes it even sweeter. Needless to say,
Feb 2008 JW77 Found another great trader in Stfun. Great straight up bottle for bottle trade. Thanks again for the great brews man. Hopefully future trades will be in order.
Feb 2008 GMCC2181 StFun to the rescue! Hooked me up with a variety of 3F in exchange for DFH. Great communication and great packaging job. Thanks stfun!!!
