    Dude, I used to LOVE going to these things, but the last one kinda sucked. The beers used to be $1 or $1.50, and now they're $5!!

    but the cups were bigger, right?

    I do remember beer scripts going for more than $1-$1.50 each before the increase, however.

    Watch out for the MS13 gang initiation. I heard from a hockey boards that there was a person that received an email from a person that works for the police that has a friend in a gang unit that there is a gang initiation going on right now. I will contact a cop from the OC to confirm this after he wakes up from his donut nap.

    amidst half of the beers that we''re all more familiar with, such as the Stone's usual samplings, a couple of Anderson Valley's and a few of the Deschute's, there were some that I have not heard of and you probably won't find in a store, much less BevMo:

    Lagunitas Saison

    this is a bit more old style type, as evidenced in the taste that is similar to a hefe-dunkel. it is heavy in wheat and yeast aroma. this farmhouse style ale probably would best complement some old style meals than drunk alone.


    Indian Well's Orange Blossom Amber

    simply put, this is tang with a slight hint of ale. keep out of reach of thirsty kids.


    Kona's Wailua Wheat

    slightly wheaty ale but heavy with tropical passion fruits, which they could do with less.


    ? Wild Blueberry (I'd like to think it's the Shipyard's)

    a pale ale with blueberry flavors that took away the essence of a pale ale. much like the OBA.


    Lagunitas Lumpy Gravy

    very brown and quite heavy at 7-8%. the type for slow drinkers. could be best served at room temp.


    Abita's Purple Haze

    sure, it is easily available in some stores, but I've avoided it because the label is weird (I know, I know, never judge a book by its cover...), and we weren't looking to try another unknown, so this one had to find its way to our cups. well, as expected, it's a weird tasting raspberry wheat - I'd rather have the Wailua Wheat.


    overall, the experience is more forgettable, with the exception of the Lumpy Gravy. the beer scripts could have been better used for the ones that are more familiar to the general beer aficionados. we capped the day with a Firestone's DBA and a Murphy's Irish Stout, however. quite refreshing, these two.

    back to you, Henry.

    FYI- you can get all the beers you mentioned at Bevmo except for the Indian Wells Tang. Indian Wells has 2 other beers I have sampled that are ok. One is a dopplebock clocking in at 10% and a Rattlesnake Red. They bottle but the only place I have ever found it is in Death Valley.
