Can you help me find some of these obscure beers?


As you may know, I'm reviewing beers according to the 2015 BJCP Style Guidelines in order (that's the plan, at least). The problem is, some of the more obscure/niche styles are very difficult to come by in America, ESPECIALLY here in Florida! So if you have access to any of these commercial examples of these styles and you'd be willing to donate them to me I'd be very grateful! Trades are also a possibility. I'd be willing to comp postage depending on the circumstance.

Also, if you'd like me to review your homebrew to BJCP specs you can send that to me as well. I can be reached at chadpolenz@yahoo.com
