In that case, I would like mine packaged up in 1/4 oz increments.

The Hop Swap was just a ploy to lure you out to play on Saturday. I really don't care about the hops, whatever's good for you guys, I can wait.

the hops are already divided (at least the cascade, chinook, and columbus are).

My hands are sticky.
My hands are green.
My hands smell delicious.

You should decant some pale ale over your hands into a glass, like with absinthe and sugar. Be an opportunist!

It was nice to see you guys this afternoon, I had a good time. My assessment of Edenton Brewery is this: The head brewer was friendly and there were some nice looking chicks there. But, generally, I thought the beer was disappointing...I certainly wouldn't buy it in the grocery store. The stout wasn't too bad but there wasn't enough hops in the IPA, it was more like an amber ale. I might go there again but only to see the bluegrass bands on Tues, nights. Walker, thanks for handling the bulk hops purchase.
Jeff

Guys, FWIW I was curious so I did a little research on 1249 Wicker Drive....interesting brewing history! Edenton Brewing Company has been at this location since 2003. Prior to that Chesapeake Bay Brewing Company was there from 2001-2003. Rock Creek Brewing Company used the facility from 1999-2001. From 1997-1999 Pale Ale Brewery was there. And the very first brewer to use this building (as far as I can tell) was Tomcat Brewing, 1996-1997.

wow... there must be a lot of brewing ghosts in that place!

My assessment of the beer is a little more positive. The red and nut brown ales were very tastey, but I think you, Jeff, are quite a bit more of a hop head than I am (I will agree that their IPA was too light on hops for my taste, though.)

Headbrewer was definately a nice guy, and had a decent sense of humor. My favorite part was when we were walking out of the room where they force carbonate and bottle. Something let off a bunch of pressure and there was a loud and sudden "HISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS". The brewmaster immediately started shouting, "EVERYBODY OUT! GET OUT!" implying that something was about to explode ... then he finally let out a chuckle.

I got a good laugh out of it, but I'm sure he scared the sh!t out of at least 3 or 4 people.

I too liked the tour. The head brewer was more approachable than the one at the CBC. Probably because they don't do tours every weekend and the crowd was smaller. I think their Helles was decent, but the other ones that I had (American Ale and Revolution ale) were not as much to my liking.
