That sounds great Graham Reid! I'll join you on that one.
I imagine that a bottle share with beer from our respective locales would be a lovely idea but also a pain in the butt for flights. I'm up to try if others are, I pack beer for my checked bag all the time. Came back from Portland once with 40 pounds worth of beer.
That are we find something awesome from a local brewery and try to share. Bottle shares are a lot of fun.
