International Beer swap

I am currently starting up an international beer swap with the USA. I have two people, Chris and Shane from New Mexico who are investigating the american side of the operation, such as State and Federal Laws.  At this stage we are still planning, but we are interested in contributions from everyone. As things develop they will be posted to this group. We are hoping that the future will lead to a chapter in each state. looking forward to hearing from you all. Cheers PaulSee More
