    Firestone's 31 pale ale is pretty good. Recommend it. Comparable to Stone's Pale Ale.

    DB is good stuff, but their Union Jack is by far the best I've had from Firestone. Check that one out if you haven't already.

    I had this last night. Pretty Good IPA. Not as hoppy as I expected. This was supposed to be a double. It could have been the heat of something but I have had much hoppier

    That is a goddamn good beer ! We had that at a recent Double IPA tasting. One of the best DIPAs out there for sure. Where did you get yours from? It's pretty hard to come by !

    I liked the beer. Just not as hoppy as I would think. I grabbed a 22 ouncer at the Bevmo in Irvine on Sunday. One of the employees there recommended it and they had it in the back. Maybe call around and see if the ones by you have it.

    It sounds like your BevMo and the one Mitch goes to are far better than the ****ty one we have here in Glendora. I go to Lone Hill Liquor which is leagues above BevMo, but still it sounds like you guys are picking up some stuff that I can't really seem to get up my way.

    I really don't care much for Marin. I find them to be very average at best, but definitely was impressed with the white knuckle. You're right, it wasn't very hoppy but the flavor was excellent.

    Agree with your take on Marin, average brewery. Will have to try this Double IPA you and KJ are talking about.

    Also Az, when the BevMo by me opened, I was lucky enough to have KJ come down and show me the good brews to get me started.

    I know Bevmo has different distributors by areas. Creeping Death was able to get Bass Pubs cans for me for yearsat his Bevmo when I couldn't even find them in Orange County. Luckily my Bevmo carries them now.

    If you can't find the Marin White Knuckle, shoot me a pm and I'll grab you a few.

    Have you guys seen any of the new Southern Hemisphere Harvest Ale from Sierra Nevada? I've heard that Hollingshead is carrying it, and might try to snag some next time I am in the OC area for work.
