    Looks like some local folks are trying to get the old mendocino brewery fired back up. Apparently they did a very limited run of Red Tail and Eye of the Hawk at the end of last year.
    EotH was one of my introductions to craft beer. I also always really liked their Blue Heron pale ale. They also used to bottle a blend of EotH with their stout that they called Black Eye, it was wonderful.
    Will be lovely if they can make a regional return

    I really enjoyed the Red Tail. I found it to be malty goodness in a glass. Nice to find a beer that is not over hopped!

    It's always nice to see "legacy brands" trying to come back.

    Remember when BBC brought back New Albion Ale for a while? It's too bad it seems to be gone again; that was a pretty fun beer to drink (even if it was a near carbon copy of SNPA....understandably so).
