Jul 2015 jredmond Bill and I set up a 12-beer trade centered around some Hill Farmstead for some Tahoe Mtn & Lost Abbey. Got my box yesterday and it was a great treat after returning home from some unexpected appendicitis surgery. Bill is the classic example of what ratebeer trading is all about - provided numerous extras all of weird stuff I havent tried or heard of PLUS a little variety bag of stickers, coasters,
Feb 2015 reggiedunlop Wow! Bill sent the agreed upon beer and a ton of extras! Super generous and great to work with. Don’t hesitate to trade with him. Cheers Bill!

Mar 2013 Guerde Bill once again sends an incredible box of West Coast beers I’ve never tried including the Ruhstaller line of beers, Sang Noir, and Epic Project 2. Everything was expertly packed as always, and he even included some breweriana (I’ll be wearing that shirt) along with a pocket knife. Thanks again for the great trade!

Jan 2010 Rosebud butternuts after asking a favor of bill next thing i know i am getting a box in the mail with way more than i asked of him. was surprised to see a collection of 3 frost knives that he sent along which happens to be one of my favorite knife makers. the beers were a mess of 3 moa brewing beers, noel des geants, and a couple of hand bottles. looks like i still owe you bill.

Bill’s great is all i can say!!
Nov 2009 allendodd He just wanted a few more Furious, so I sent him two four-packs. (who wouldn’t want such a great guy to have as much of such a great beer as possible.) He reciprocated with six bombers of some really interesting beers, some high rated beers, and some curiosities. In two trades with bhensonb he has given me so much more than I him, that I am starting to feel like a piker. Great- generous tr

The box was expertly packed, shipping was lightning quick, and communication was great. If you ever get the chance, I’d highly recommend trading with Bill.
Oct 2009 allendodd Bhensonb has made me a great trade. He came looking for some n. midwestern beers and returned the favor with some truly great beers. A Dissident and a Temptation call to me as I type, and two generations of the Abyss sing their sirens’ song from the cellar. An Older Viscosity waits for an oil change, and I’m feeling stingy by comparison with bhensonb’s beers. Trade with him.
Sep 2009 Rosebud butternuts another insane trade with bill. 2 boxes containing a handbottle of blushing monk and Apis. so many beers bill sent i cant fit them all in the allotted text. some highlights are batch 23/46, ballast point sculpin, firestone union jack, slow elk, and a Westy 8 as a total shock. bill is a generous and top notch trader. never disappointed.
