    Stearn's Liquor in LB. He's got about 8 cases on the floor. $9.99 a bottle is a bit much though.

    Had Port's Mongo Double IPA on Fridee night. Huge on the Columbus hops, with an overall nice hop flavor (cascade and amarillo too) with just a slight malt backbone that makes this beast a hophead's delight. What I really liked was the imbalance of hop to malt, as any hoppy brew over 8% with too much malt drinks far too warm. This one is all hop and had an exceptionally dry finish.

    Get this one while it is fresh! Blows the pants off Pliny the Elder IMO.

    That picture sucks. This is made by Alpine (for those wondering). They currently have these at Stearn's Liquor in LB also.

    Very good.

    Blows the pants off? Hmmm, I guess that's a matter of opinion. I'll take a Pliny any day over Mongo...but that's just me.

    What do you think of Knuckle Sandwich?

    Good article about brewing in Germany from Slate.

    Slate: Why German beer culture is in decline - Slate.com - msnbc.com

    And on the Pliny vs. ???? Can't we all agree that Pliny simply IS a great beer? Better for some, less so for others. But in the big picture, it cannot be said that it's not a supreme beer.

    That's sad. Back in the day Pete's was one of the few craft beers you could get all over the place. Pete's Wicked Ale was pretty good from what I recall. Looks like another case of a big brewer buying a small one and letting it die off due to neglect.
