Itís cool to sell beer on ebay, itís cool to buy beer on ebay.

But for me personally I only like to send beer in trade to people who intend to drink it, rather than profit off my effort in sending it to him.

So even though I virtually never trade anymore, I appreciate people bringing this to light. Not because I want to take the moral high ground, just because I want to know what other traders are doing with the beer. Cheers!

Well, this thread was looking for "no more trades." It looks like the OP got his wish.

I donít know, but I will trade you some Orval for some rare Cantiloons!


Remember AJ plans to go to Belgium and buy all the Cantiloons and 3F and cases of Westy 12 so he can ship himself back 13 cases!!!


Yeah, but he is going to spend all his money and get stuck in Belgium, so I will just go to his house and steal all his cases for myself. Itís all good and Canaan is a small place so I can easily figure out where he lives.

AJ has provided all the fodder for the backlash and present uprising, he has only himself to blame. I suppose he is a self proclaimed social media guru with "no less than 10 twitter accounts", so he shouldíve known it inevitable that this was all going to surface at some point. Sad day for beer, sad day for New Hampshire, sad day for AJ -becuse heís stuck in the middle of nowhere and he wonít be able to buy Hill Farmstead anymore.


Really think Shaun would ban him from buying at the brewery? I mean it would be awesome and I think Shaun is against people doing that with his beer and hopefully it would stop others from doing the same shit but that would suuuuucccck for that dude.



Shaun has posted on the brewery FB page about his bottles showing up on eBay before- it seemed to trouble him greatly. At a minimum, its highly frowned upon to tout your local brewery and turn around and resell the bottles at huge markups. I cannot imagine that he would let AJ purchase beer from him knowing there was even a chance he would resell again. Thatís just my take, maybe Shaun can chime in.

*Perhaps if it were for an emergency or a medical treatment, reselling beer on ebay could be forgiven. In this case however, it seems AJ is a highly acclaimed social media guru who is currently booking gigs through the William Morris Agency and likely doesnít need the money, perhaps heís just doing this all for a lark.
