Cork & Brew home brew beer swap!

Would there be interest out there if Cork & Brew hosted a home brewed beer swap?  Free of charge.  Home brewers would just have to sign up & bring a six pack or more of their brew & swap with other beer lovers. Take it home or drink it there.  Talk beer making.  Thoughts?  Interest?
