    These are the metal related beers I've found for the bottle share:
    Verjnuarmu smoked porter, Impaled NAzarene's Year of the Goat smoked ale, Amorphis pale ale, Herald (Estonian heavy metal) black IPA and the Trooper 666.

    Image

    I have a couple of other brews for the brewmaster at Funky Buddha and for Brian (Monmisreal) and one chile beer for a fellow chilehead. But I might be able to take a couple of other beers as well, so in case anyone has any specific requests, now's the time.
    Sucks that Alko (our alcohol store) has craft beer weeks starting in February, and they seem to get some wild ales and sours then. I'm not a fan of any of the sour styles, but apparently some do like them. My favourite style is IPA (or to be precise, APA) and I've recently started to enjoy more and more black IPAs and porters. But, yes, if you guys&gals have any specific in mind (from Finland or Estonia), I can try and find them. :beerwink:

    Oh, the supermarkets here carry the Motörhead, Kiss and AC/DC beers, but I'm not bringing them. They're all terrible. :lol:

    What can I do to get one of these Amorphis Pale Ale, and what can I offer back in exchange? :D

    I guess I could bring you one to the beach party or to Funky Buddha if you're going. Maybe some Spanish/Catalonian craft beer in exchange? Not Estrella Damm. :lol: Some IPA or imperial/double IPA if possible. I'm not too familiar with the Spanish craft beer scene, so pretty much any brew you'll find is a new one for me.

    I'll try to find a good one, I'll come back to you ;)

    I think I won't make it to the beach party, or at least it will be really late, but if we can meet somewhere in Ft. Lauderdale. Or even the 4th on the queue maybe?

    Sure. We're staying at the Travelodge Ft. Lauderdale Beach close to the Ocean Manor, so if you're close by in the evening of the 3rd, we can meet up somewhere around there. Or while queueing in the port. :beerwink:

    What time is everyone getting to funky buddha? I'm taking a half day on the second and we will basically be heading right for it.

    Just realized there's two locations. Is the one we are going to 1201 NE 38th St, Oakland Park, FL?

    That seems to be the location, yes.
    Since the "70,000 Tons of Funky Buddha" event is set to start at 6PM, maybe we should have the bottle share at 5PM?

    As a beer enthusiast and first timer this seems a great way to get to know some fellow cruisers.

    Does anyone have any wishes regarding Belgian Beers? I won't be able to take many in my luggage but could buy some tax free in the airport in Brussels where they should sell some decent beers as well.

    Bodomdragon, buy him an Estrella off one of the people selling it at the beach, jejejeje.

    One of my bosses took me to a brewery in Barcelona, it was inside some big garage and had barrels for seats and a taco truck parked inside. Actually, I think it was this one: http://edgebrewing.com/gallery/. It's run by American expats, and my boss is a beer snob who really likes it there. The beer was good, and so are the tacos.

    I just finished packing my beers. It's not the same as I originally meant to bring, but they're a nice mix:

    - Flower City American IPA from Lock 32 (brewery on the Erie Canal)
    - The Kind IPA from 3 Heads Brewery
    - 2XIPA from Southern Tier
    - Scotch Ale from Genesee Brewing Co
    - Oatmeal Milk Stout from Hamburg
    - Joe Latte from CB Craft Brewers

    Actually we have some reallly good breweries in Barcelona, many of them run by expats. Craft beer is starting to be a thing here, and we beer lovers are very happy with that :)

    Dammit. Doesn't look good finding a bottle of the Amorphis beer bodomdragon. I've checked the five most likely places that might have it, but they've all sold every last bottle. And no idea when the next batch is in the shops.
    But, since the beer itself isn't all that special, I think I'll save the bottle I have for you. :beerwink:

    I still have one place I'm checking tomorrow.

    So gals and guys,
    I've bought a lot of local brews for the exchange, those can only be found in Ontario or Toronto.
    That raises my question:
    How much booze am I allowed to carry thru US customs? Does anyone know?

    Thanks!

    The US customs website says just 1L of alcohol but that's BS because I remember bringing more than that for gnoff back in the day.

    Looks like there are no strict limits on alcohol. Main thing is that it is for personal and not for commercial use.
    This is from US Customs site:
    "There is no federal limit on the amount of alcohol someone may import into the U.S. for personal use, however, large quantities might raise the suspicion that the importation is for commercial purposes, and a CBP Officer could require you to obtain an Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) import license before releasing it."

    you can bring as much as you like, just no more than 2 of the same labeled beer or its considered "commercial". From california to wacken a few times and i've only had an eyebrow raised once but security didnt care as it was personal use.

    So I managed to buy 4 beers with, I hope great taste and funny names (Satan, Pirate, ...) and will pick up some at the airport.

    What are the whereabouts of the bottle exchange. Does it actually take place @ the Funky Buddha or somewhere around. The official time is 7PM on the FB event. We are arriving at 3PM in Miami so gotta see how we can make it.

    We noticed that haha. The employees were not too happy with open bottles and cans. We had to give ours over to someone to hold until we left. I still have one bottle for you maybe haha.

    Back home and seems I managed to try well over 40 new brews on the trip. :beerwink:
    Thanks Brian for the 110K+OT Imperial IPA. That was quite a nice breakfast while lining up for the boat. :lol:
