    I lived in Arcata, California for a while and they have a community currency called Arcata bucks. I think this idea is a pretty cool idea for local shops and homemade drafts. If your goal is to buy local, this is a great way to go. It does not work as well when you are trying to buy from corporations and profit driven establishments.
