    I know; but I kind of like that it isn't...makes the anticipation greater! Cheers.

    Didn't know they distributed that far, their Nano-brewery for designing is less than a mile from my house. I have been invited to brew a batch with them at the nano sometime, guess I should remember to email them.

    I just got a job at my local bottle shop. Hop Notch is probably the best selling IPA we carry. In NC.

    I wholeheartedly agree. And they have pretty cool origins/operation to boot.

    This just came out in 4pks in VT! It's delicious, creamy smooth roasty coffee flavor with no heat.

    Lazy Magnolia's TimberBeast is pretty terrific!

    NOLA has Mechahopzilla, but not canned yet!

    Unfortunately only available in mass., Jack's Abby Hoponius Union and ginger and juice is AMAZING. Sad that I'm unable to obtain it in NYC and that nobody knows of this awesome brewery's existence.

    Same with Dubhe. They are way underated. I think it's the artwork and name. People think they are Abita.

    Recently someone gave me a bomber of Jasper Murdock's Private Stock '12. I was very surprised by the quality of their brew. It's a small brewery attached to an inn up in Norwich, VT. The full body, caramel malts, and bready aftertaste all blend together so nicely in this beer. It is also aged for a year which is always a nice touch!

    I am glad that I live just 20 minutes from this brewery. Let me know if you ever want to work out a trade. I can even grab the brews that are only available at their brewery. For instance, their sour beer (I believe it was called bier de garde) was absolutely INCREDIBLE!

    I like your taste. Cowiche and Fat Tug are awesome. I also enjoyed the Cowiche Hop Lab #1 (green bottle). Regarding Humulo Nimbus - just watch out for old bottles. Last bottle I had was a total malt bomb (still good though).

    I am new to evaluating what I call "fancy beers" also known as good beers! My vote for really good beers I have not heard much about are some of the chocolate stouts. Young's Double Chocolate Stout went unchallenged (in my opinion) for several years, until last night. Samuel Smiths Organic Chocolate Stout surpassed Young's by leaps and bounds!

    Agreed! For around $10 a bomber, it doesn't get much better for my money. Could stand a little more bourbon flavor, but that's a minor gripe.

    Grey Sail Stargazer Imperial Stout is very nice. They're out of Westerly, RI and have been around for about a year.

    Daymark is my favorite so far. Great sipping beer spring/summer. Zephyr and Ishmael are great beers too, haven't gotten around to their darker beers. They had a limited release called "prince Tuesday" that was a collaboration with Allagash. Had it on tap at great lost bear in Portland, wish I could find it again. Good luck, let me know what you think!

    Couldn't disagree more. I think the new branding is sharp. Remember this?
