    Anyone here know of a way to get a hold of Obejuan? I've started homebrewing and wanted to let him know and have a couple questions, but he doesn't seem to be around...

    PM me if possible.

    And on topic, Sierra Nevada's Southern Hemisphere Harvest Ale is solid, picked up a 22oz at Lone Hill Liquor in Glendora.

    For the record, I grew up in Glendora, lived there for 20+ years, and only just now heard about that place. FML.

    Creeping Death would be the main guy to go to for homebrewing advice, Watti.
    I BELIEVE I'll have another beer!

    I didn't like this one personally, had it a couple years back. But at least you get a good buzz from it.
    I'm not sure. I could tell that this beer had a different profile than most of the other Belgian ales I've had. The first thing I noticed was the sweetness of the beer, then the spices came in although a bit muted compared to other ales, and then it was washed over by the boozy finish. I don't remember getting much dark fruits, or at least not nearly as much as I'd expect to get from darker beers, but there was a dark, perhaps slightly maltier sense about the beer.

    The name seemed to be appropriate, because after the beer and a slug of Nyquil (getting over a cold) I slept pretty soundly for the next 10 hours!

    Edit to add: About to reach for some Velvet Merlin right now.

    Cool, good to know. Everything went way smoother than expected, fermenting in the closet right now.

    More than anything, just wanted to give Obe a heads up and offering him a couple bottles, so if anyone knows how to reach him (email, facebook, etc) drop me a PM.

    A++++ and how. I was lucky enough to get to have it on tap. It only lasted a couple of days. Hop heads delight!

    BP Big Eye IPA (Haven't had this in years, always loved it, and want to re-evaluate it. Only $3.99 for a 22 oz, STEAL!)
    The SN Homegrown is another outstanding SN effort IMO. And all the Ballast Point brews are great. I don't think they have a beer less than very, very good in any style. Along those lines Pour House managed to get a keg of Sculpin a couple of weeks back. As with most awesome hoppy ales, it blew in 1.5 days. Just can't keep that stuff long enough b/c it's so damn good.

    How bad was the GD Ice? And wtf is it anyway?!

    Game Day Ice was horrendous, as I had expected. It's a 24 oz can for 2 bucks I saw at 711. After 2 sips I poured it down the drain, but hey - its another beer to add on my list (about 1300 or so now).

    Never had the Chelada stuff, but its safe to say they're all in the same ballpark!

    If I'm gonna go cheap, I actually do enjoy Icehouse and PBR. Great lawn mowing beers!

    The next time you throw up a little in your mouth you can safely say you've had a Chelada! Tecate, Modelo Especial, XX, or Pacifico are my yard work beers of choice. PBR also works in a pinch.
