Picked up 2 bottles of Stone's Russian Imperial Stout. UN****ING BELIEVABLY good! Well worth the $8/bottle price.

Also forgot to add, Bevmo now carries Stone's Ruination in 6 packs.

Yo Beerman, Mitch and Doug - we need to plan a trip down to Stone. You will not regret it nor be disappointed.

FYI to all. Since I have moved up to the Seattle area I have now visited the Red Hook Brewery. For those that don't know in the mid-90's Red Hook was all the rage and was pretty good. They then went the IPO route and very commercial. I think they are now available nationally but can't remember. I fell off them as a result of over exposure about 10 years ago. But now after visiting the brewery I think they have gotten over themselves. The ESB is what they are famous for but I like the Blonde and CopperHook.

Their old original brewery has been gone for some time now. That was a cool place. Little tasting room/den. The ESB was better back then. I used to really like Blackhook, Ballards Bitter, and in the summer - Wheathook. Once they were bought by Budweiser (I think), the quality went down a notch.

I want in on the trip down to stone- I'll be headed down for my buddy's bachelor party in about two months- the goal (I'm planning) is to hit stone, alesmith, coronado/ballast point... we'll probably hit stone twice
