I swap beers with a few people and I believe also quite a few do through local clubs/meetups.
I was contemplating whether there would be enough interest on here to do an annual swap with 10-20 people; 21 beers with 20 being sent off and people allowed more than one 'entry' if needed to fill the numbers.
It involves a lot of work though for the logistics at that number and some outlay for people entering (a case of PET bottles and about a tenner carriage each way);probably better value than individuals swapping bottles though, both in terms of money and learning.

That's worth a shot. It may be also worth sending a forum email telling people Jim's is still here and about your plans. I was one of the members whose accounts were deleted and I only came back after spotting Jim's in a search.
