Mar 2014 pushkinwow Awesome trade with Ben for some wants of mine - some tasty locals were generously included and the communication and packaging were great. Looking forward to another trade in the future.
Mar 2014 Homer321 Ben sent me a killer box for a sorta open ended trade we had going. He drops a 12 pack styro shipper full of unticked beers that I was looking for, a big want, and an even bigger whale that I didn’t ever think I would get. Ben knocked it out of the park again!
Feb 2014 jdb288 Did a local swap and Ben was my shipper. Let’s just say he far exceed the $25 limit. Simply an amazing box of New Glarus, Central Waters, and some exotic locals that I cannot wait to try. Very generous trader and I hope to repay the favor!
Feb 2014 tneumann Received a nice package of beer from Ben for winning our rate beer fantasy football league. Had a nice selection of Wisconsin beers and also included Central Waters Bourbon Barrel Imperial stout looking forward to that one. Thanks Ben.
Jan 2014 SP23 Ben sent me some great brews for Fantasy Football. I will be glad to pick him again if I place next year. Thanks Ben.
Dec 2013 dar787s Another great trade with Ben that got me some more top-notch Wisconsin beers. Once again, Ben was fair and quick to both respond and ship. Would suggest this guy to any beer trader out there!

Sep 2013 Bvdubn Ben sent to me in the locals 5 1/2 swap. He sent me a beer of my wants and a number of new ticks including a 2L growler. Everything was well packaged in a cardboard bottle shipper and Ben maintained consistent contact throughout the swap. I hope we can set up a trade in the future.
Aug 2013 BlowOffTube I won the free beer contest from Ben and he sent a 6 bottle shipper from New Glarus my way. I am blown away by the generosity of what he sent. R&D Blackberry, Sour Wild, Strawberry Rhubarb, Serendipity, Anniversary Strong Ale, and a Berliner Weiss.

Jul 2013 DocJitsu Ben was timely, informal, communicative, and an all around pleasure to trade with. He packed very well. Everything was bubble-wrapped and in Styrofoam shippers.

He read my mind with one of them, as I was just about to put it on my Wants list this week
