    Interesting.I was wondering what was gonna come of this.

    Full Sail just arrived on shelves here in CT. but reviews/grades don't look too promising.
    On the other hand,I really dig the Flying Jenny E.P.A. that grey sail,uh,I mean Grey Sail of R.I. puts out there.

    Cheers All...............

    Is this a story from the onion? Who would confuse the two?

    What's next all "DOG" related breweries will have to differentiate themselves too! Get a life Full O' **** Sail
  7. As long as they keep making their cream ale they can change their name to whatever they want. Crushing those at the beach in the summer is niiiiiiiice.
  8. Started off tonight with a Flying Jenny to support Grey Sail Brewing. (of Rhode Island)

    Chik-fil-a sued a dude for making Eat More Kale tshirts. This stuff doesn't always make sense.

    Reminds me of asshole Bass sueing Smuttynose over their original label that had the triangle behind the seal. The new Smuttynose label is way better now anyway with the rock but i still say fuck Bass....CHEERS
