Fans of micro-brew beer with something valuable to barter with (think old Picasso in the attic or some wild talent, like extreme pogo-sticking or breakdancing) may want to find themselves in Whitefish, Montana next weekend for the Whitefish Winter Carnival. At the Black Star Beer Barter, The Great Northern Brewing Company will be giving away a year's supply (52 cases, the be exact) of beer to the person with the best skill or item to barter with. Last year's event was a tie between a half-naked fire twirler and a gentleman offering two classic Volkswagen vans. What would you say to a year's supply of blogging about mountain town real estate and culture (cough, cough)?
