Oh man, the 08-08-08 is insane. I'll have to try this North Coast stuff of which you speak.

Yeah, the 8-8-08 was pretty damn good. I didn't think much of the previous vertical epics, but the 08 blew me away!

Just had the Stone Cali-Belgie IPA. As my kitteh would say.. .NOM NOM NOM. Blend of west coast IPA with Belgian Ale. Hoppy, hearty, not too dry.

If you like hoppy beers, you gotta give this one a try:
Had it at the Yard House the other night, very good and full of hops. They also had Tetleys on tap, which I haven't seen for a long time. Another damn fine beer.
Yesterday I got to try this also:

I tried 20 new beers on Saturday night. The highlights were definitely Abbaye De Saint Bon-Chien and the Founder's Kentucky Breakfast Stout! Stellar brews for sure.
I don't agree with the FKBS being in the top 10 overall on beer advocate, but it was still a damn good one that I could put down anytime/anyplace. I also picked up the Expedition Stout and Hopslam from Bell's over the weekend. Sierra Nevada's Torpedo Extra IPA was phenomenal, and also grabbed Southern Tier's Choklat which is going to be saved for a special occasion Tis one of my favorites!
