How long ago where you here? Remember Jacks in Orcutt. It burnt down and the rebuilt it better than ever. You should see the revitalization in old town. It is awesome!

@ JohnTheBrewist

I just went from training wheels with the IPA to a full blown custom Chocolate Coffee Stout recipie my brother and I did about 7 years ago. It was one of the best beers we ever did. Funny how fast it all came back. Next is another original recipie I am working on for a brown ale.

Congratz on getting back into it. Sounds like a tasty beer.

I bet it would taste great with some cheese dip. (+1 for another Groo reference)

I lived in Orcutt until I went to College. Six years later and I'm living in Indianapolis and I'm still not quite sure how. My fiance and were visiting my parents in July, so of course we took her to Jack's. Though unfortunately I didn't get to see much of the fancy, new old town Orcutt. Back when I came home to visit in college, the closest thing we had to entertainment was Elmer's. This is no knock on Elmer's, but I'm glad there is more going on now.

When I used to visit my Lompoc friends, we more or less lived at South Side Coffee. I checked in on it just now, and I am glad to see it's still going strong.

Lastly, have to had a chance to check out Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co.? I left there pretty impressed. I'm a simcoe-fiend, and found their IPA to die for.

Oh yeah! I met Jason Courtney, the first head brewer for Figueroa Mountain before they opened. My Mom lives in Buellton so I was always kept up to date on their opening.
Is the IPA you are referencing the Hoppy Poppy? I havent been in a few months due to work, but did find a new one at liqour emporium in Lompoc. It's called Hurricane Deck. It's a double IPA. My wife loves IPA's but at 8% this was a little to overwhelming for her. Their Davey Brown is also very good too.

"Cheers for More Beers" as Jason would say. He and his wife Sarah were so warm and welcoming. They are misssed at Figueroa Mountain.

UPDATE. I thought the butterscotch was a bit unpleasent after trying a second and realized I had popped a bottle way to young. I have just opened another after almost 2 weeks, and WOW, no butterscotch and the hops are finishing the palate off nicely.
Moral of the home grew story, or brew as it should be...... Time will heal all wounds!
