    Was going to send Scotty a personal BM but thought others on here might be interested.

    Can you enlighten us as to the status of Rocks' bottling plans?

    When and where are we likely to see them?

    Cheers.
     
  2. Bro, thanks for the post.

    Well plans are definately afoot, but we will not have botted product until we have a plant in. We have stuck to our guns on draft for 4.5 years and will keep that focus until we product our own. Theres lots of reasons for that, the primary one though is cash and the $$'s required to produce bottles on contract.

    That being said, we have had a few IPA's muled back to San Diego by a mate. One of Harts former staffies is an SD boy, and i'm swapping a few Stone 16 year Anniversaries for a few IPA's. I also have samples going over to a few more SD folks to see how they travel and age. (we have a small counter pressure filler to syphon off kegs). Figure sea mail to SD could be just about the worse thing I could ever do to a beer ...

    The few spare IPA's I have on bottle are tasty, some may fall into the mail if you PM us ...
