    at my local Von's new shelf-in-the-middle-of-the-floor full of more mainstream micros(imagine Whole Foods w/1/4 of the adventure).

    The beer is passable/nothing amazing but the bottles rule.

    You're right, the bottle is cool. The website reminds me of the Lucid Absinthe site.

    That website is pretty cool, and the bottle is quite nice. Pale lagers are meh to me. The only one I've had that impressed me has been Longboard Lager.

    Jealous? I'll be there as well! Heading up to a buddy's house tomorrow afternoon. Will probably be at the brewery for growler fills tomorrow evening and Saturday. Hope I see you there and I hope they still have their Anni on tap!

    Sculpin is quite nice. Last I had it, it was more aggressively hopped than I remember the first go around being. Reminded me a tad of Firestone Double Jack.

    Right now:
    Got a growler of Ladyface Amazon Red which is their new imperial red ale. First time I had this I was surprised how hoppy it was. It's basically a garnet colored IPA with a bit more malt backbone. Pretty righteous stuff, in flavor and ABV. Anyway, the growler cap was leaking and I didn't think it would last until tomorrow afternoon when I arrive in the mountains of the Sequoia Nat Forest, so I'm drinking it now. Also had a pint of Pliny, their cask ale (a wine barrel aged weizenbock, dry hopped and wild yeast thrown in. Very winey taste), and a pint of SN Ovila while at the brewery.

    Had 3 new beers this week

    Bruery Cuir - Their 3rd Anniversary Ale. 14.5%, big, bold, and a slight bit of tart in the nose. Not as smoky as Papier, definitely not as sugary as Coton, just very nice and unique in its own right despite its solera technique which incorporates the first two anniversary ales in it. Its easy to consume in one sitting despite its almost 15% ABV tag. I will be buying more of this stuff!

    Bruery BA Cuir - It has the greatness of the standard version, topped off with the barrel flavors. How can you go wrong? Another one that is easy to finish in one sitting. I was surprised the ABV was also 14.5%, as typically the barrel aging usually lends another 1-3%.

    Bruery Provisions Series Bierbauch - Hate to say it, but honestly its the first Bruery beer I was disappointed with. An Imperial Helles Bock aged in oak barrels really doesn't work. I love the idea behind it, but I think German lagers need to remain far away from the experimental brewing ideas.

    I also want to make a complaint while I am at it.....

    This time of year I am drinking seasonal summer lagers, summer ales, but most importantly a ****load of German beers that are most enjoyable in the summer months. Where is the sun? Why have imperial stouts been consuming my May and June months of drinking?

    No sir, I do not like this!

    pretty damn disappointing, isn't it? when you drive 3 hours just to find out they're out of Citra and can only get the Annis in bottles. got a growler of XPA instead. good stuff anyway.
    I BELIEVE I'll have another beer!

    I was very disappointed that Class X was not available in growlers however the two pints I had of it was spectacular. Delicious, malty, smooth but with some serious balls to it. Two pints of Class X and a pint of their cask Class V with cocoa and vanilla (meh) and I was feeling pretty well! Wish the blue cheese burger I had their measured up to the price tag.

    Are they bottling Class X? If so, I'll take a case!!!

    We had a little tasting with some friends this weekend and I brought a bottle of Stone IRS Belgo Anise. Someone on another board mentioned that it tasted a bit like Jagermeister and that's fairly accurate. If you like black licorice or jager, you might like it. To me it tasted partly IRS and partly nyquil. I'll just stick to the regular IRS.
