More often than not the beers I get here are skunked or oxidized. Probably more of a distributer/retailer issue. I remember having a really fresh ruination about 4 years ago that was awesome, and an amazing fresh ipa on tap about 2 years ago. Other than that it's been underwhelming.
I imagine their beers are pretty tasty in Southern California. But in Ohio they kinda suck. I blame ohio for that though.
Greg Koch did get real weird in the last few years. What's up with that gross beard and him going off on bizarre rants? I agree he seems pretty full of himself. Mitch Steele seems like a solid guy though.
