    PPBC just started canning their Elephant Rock IPA today. $11.95 a 4pk for tall boys. Haven't had it yet, but cans are dope!

    Its an ok IPA, i'll definitely pick some up. They also have bottles of Penrose Reserve 1302, belgian golden aged for 2 months in Chardonnay barrels for about $10/750, which is pretty tasty.

    It is quite good, picked up a slight Brett influence (IMO) in a good way.

    Tap room only or are these hitting shelves?

    Both will be hitting the shelves. Would expect the IPA will see much wider distro on a continuous basis. The Penrose is, as I understood it, the first in a series of "reserve" type beers that see some barrel treatment. It is getting distributed locally at least (Monument and C.Springs).
