    They got a new experimental release available in their taproom, Nelson Sauvin. Despite the horribly unoriginal and lame name, the beer is a total winner. Especially, if like me, you are a sucker for nelson sauvin hops. Bought a few bottles the other day and already thinking of buying some more before its all gone. Worth checking out if you are around.

    I had this at Saison Fest at Trinity last month. Agreed, great beer.

    Yeah, Funkwerks seems to be throwing all their experimental/pilot batches into bottles and offering them in their taproom. They usually have 2 or 3 of these bottles on hand at a time and in the past they have stuck around for a few months, so you should be able to find some when you make it there.

    If anyone is coming down to Avery tonight from Fort Collins, I'd love a couple bottles of Funkwerks Nelson Sauvin. I'm visiting from Michigan and have drank all the bottles I brought (except a Heady which I could toss ya), but would be willing to send something out or work something else out.

    I'll have to keep that in mind when go to Ft. Collins in a couple of months, if it still around. Funkwerks is probably the most excitable thing on my trip I'm looking forward to.

    I swung by there on Monday and picked up a bottle. It's good.

    Nelson from Alpine is one of the greatest IPAs ever created in my opinion, yet I tried the Nelson hop IPA from Widmer Bros, and I know its Widmer, but I thought it was total trash, I don't even think I finished it! But I will give Funkwerks a shot!
