There aren't many that I've seen; if you can get your hands on Hop Rod Rye, do so.

The store near my house has quite a few odd-ball microbrews I will look for that one this weekend. Thanks

Don't expect the obvious rye bread taste. The bread usually has a lot of caraway seed flavor. Rye beer without the caraway has another layer of flavor, a 'spiciness'. Rye was all I did for my first 12 batchs of AG. Add a pound of rice hulls for 2# of rye in the mash. I made brown rye. Lightly hopped. Spicy Newcastles. Been brewin Fat Ass Tired latley, maybe I ought to try some Wryse Ass Tired?
