Feb 2016 gregwilsonstl Markus was one of my easiest trades yet. 7 total emails. I asked for a couple of my wants, and he flipped them to me quick! His throw in’s were all highly rated, and the styles I like. One of them was one of my highest wants since Ive been on ratebeer (Imperial Stout Trooper), and I didnt even have it on my wants anymore so he had no idea.
Aug 2014 BeerArchivist Markus is a great guy and fantastic trader. I was in desperate need of a retired beer and he came through with not only the beer I asked for, but several other beers I was interested in. Communication was excellent, packaging was perfect, and shipping only took a couple of days. Looking forward to future trades, and thanks again for this trade. Cheers!
