HERE is some more info on that.

northern brewer and cascade hops. anyone who is down on CO beers is just jealous...especially if theyre from TX i lived in austin for 20 long years and its much better here (beer speaking--screw having to drive to central market to buy a decent beer).

I'm pretty impressed with the stuff from Avery. I finally found this year's Czar today...and a sixer of Old Jubilation too.

I am jealous and Texan. I understand that Colorado is our "Brewing Capital" of the US. But, most of those guys up there are like you ..they're from Texas.

H.E.B. started carrying Flying Dog. I about dropped to see that one sixer of FD Pale ale sitting there . I just hate to see stray lonely dogs. So I took them all home.

Thanks for the hop info.

What I meant to say is that he illustrated many of Hunter's books. Hunter was the writer, Steadman was the artist. Everyone should read "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" if they haven't.

Recently Costco, at least in southern california had a case of Flying Dog that was an assortment of 6 different beers in it. It had the pale ale, golden ale, hefeweizen, IPA, porter, and the amber lager. That was the first time I had tried anything from them and I must agree that the Pale Ale and the IPA are pretty good. If there is a costco near, you might want to check it out.

They didn't have it at my local Costco, but they did have a Sam Adams Holiday Collection 24pk for $20. I didn't like the Cranberry Lambic too much, but the rest of them I really liked.
