    Best IPA I have found in this area is from Wicked Week brewing in Asheville, NC. And they are another craft brewery that is being bought by Anheuser-Busch.

    I like the Dragon's milk but it is on the Sweet Side. if you can find some Mackenson **** Stout, give it a try! It is probably the best Sweet stout ever made based on what my taste bubs have found ;)

    And I prefer the dryer Irish stout's over the sweet tasting British Stout's as the British use Milk sugar(lactose) to sweeten their beer's.

    What a week! Wife was in Arizona for 5 days and I had the 3yo and 11mo solo. Woof!

    To top it off, I couldn't get the GD cork out. :p

    The jury is still out on this coffee IPA. When I want my beer to taste like a stout, I drink a stout. When I want an IPA, more of the same.

    Never at the same time.

    Sorry to hear that Sami.
    My last 3 Sundays have been hijacked from me. So i'll start milling grain in a couple of hours in prep for brew day tomorrow. No if and or buts.
    In the meantime...

    Local brewpub with a rabid cult following.
    Cool music scene too. James McMurtry was there a few weeks ago.

    Hempen Gold lager brewed with Hemp Seeds smoother than the Hemp in Ale the Green Stuff. This is a gateway brew and has led me to checkout some of those Space Dust Brews. Careful with that Space Dust IPA Russ don't want Dan finding you wandering around incoherent B)

    A little Beatles 50th Sgt Peppers to capture my inner Zen!

    It's been empty for about 3 years. I just keep the bottle as a reminder of how stupid I was to buy it... ;)

    No. They do have a copper ale that is called......Copper Ale.
    I don't know what this one is. It's not a brown by color and it's not a red by taste.
    I'll have to ask next time I drop in.
    It's pretty damn tasty and that all that matters.

    I see what your saying, I assumed you had the recommended Ray Bans on, well if the background was not so bright I guess those LSIM's would look good flanked to the right of our beers.

    Finally have Bell's in Texas! Cool. I'm brewing a Bell's Two Hearted copy as I type this.
    Haven't sampled the Amarillo yet.
