    Pipeworks is great - but their artwork really turns me off. It's horrible. It's not appealing - at all. It looks like they threw it together in powerpoint with some shitty font. Their beer is great, though.

    Solemn Oath is solid, too - look for more good things from them...and Spiteful from Chicago, too.

    So far I've been really disappointed in Rockford's offering. The hoplust tasted like a home brew to me. Most of the others have been just meh. The one that has really stood out to me so far is the Rogue River Brown on Nitro. Simply phenomenal. I want this brewery to succeed (since I live 5 minutes from it), but to me it is a dime a dozen at this point.

    I'd still be sittin' on DC Brau, there's some Dynamite gettin' ready to pour from that joint (as if it isn't already) and I think I'll take my place in the "blast hole" as come mid to late-March where it will be unrecoverable!!! Timing is everything and our world is still orbital...

    Almanac. Their Farmer's Reserve drink like RR sours. Which is to say amazing...

    Agreed, just got #3 & 4 and can't wait to try em. Barrel Noir was really nice too, especially as a counterpoint to typically huge and overly sweet BA beers. Also heard their new recipes for the extra pale and honey saison are much improved.

    Urban Chestnut and the whole St. Louis scene. As well as this crazy new Boston scene after ACBF last weekend.

    I had to laugh out loud at the alcoholism ripe in "I'm at the brewery every weekend filling multiple growlers for the upcoming week"

    I don't know about RR sours, they are pretty good. Almanac should have released those first. I have tried their first few beers that came our way, and they were awful. I was so damn surprised how good these new ones are.

    I'm heading up to Newcastle on Friday. Will definitely be stopping by Oxbow.
