    Alright everybody, looks like this thread is winding down. Before we put this to bed, I did want to reach out and ask and see if there were any collabs you would like to see us do in 2020 or any beer styles you would like to see come out of Kern River that we have not done before?

    Can't think of a thing except to thank you for your time.

    How about a collaboration with Russian River? Maybe play up the "rivers" aspect in the branding. Permit me to suggest a hoppy beer featuring Sabro hops.

    Maybe Fall River Brewing (they do one really good IPA and I have a chance of getting a collab you two do), also I'll throw out Gyppo Ale Mill, they are a small rural brewer doing some really nice stuff in the more traditional lager styles and I'd just like to see more brewers doing that kind of thing

    Obviously we have a ton of respect for Russian River as a brewery as well as Vinnie and Natalie as people. To collab with them would be a joy. With that said, they have a lot going on these days. Maybe I'll get a chance to bring it up in conversation someday...

    As for Sabro, have a pale ale in the tank right now using it. Smells great!

    Glad to hear they are putting out some great stuff. I'll do my best to check out their stuff if I have an opportunity.

    My mother was born in Germany. When I was a child (maybe as young as 5) I would get a salt-shaker sized glass of beer occasionally with meals. So I blame her...

    Eric, I am enjoying Citra in a can. Deeeeeeeelicious.
    Go to Pine Cone Sunday night to see/hear David Gans. You will enjoy his take on Grateful Dead Songbook Acoustic.
