If they are close to a Ruination at a cheaper price... even better.
Just bought a sixer today. 14 bucks in NH. Not a bad brew. Don't really think it is worth the high price.

Also I-Hop, your "Frank the Tank" quote intrigues me. Seems some time ago on a racing web board here in New England, there was a poster with that screen name. If I remember correctly, he was quite humorous.

Frank the Tank was Will Ferrell"s character in the movie "Old School." It was about a group of older guys that start a fraternity so they can rent a house that is on a college property. It was sort of along the lines of Animal House. Great movie and in my eyes, Will Ferrell's best. If you haven't seen it... rent it.

Ballast Point is my LHBS! the IPA is good, but I like their porter the most I think.

you pretty much can't go wrong with Ballast Point. Their porter is outstanding and so is their IPA. I really love it when Dorado double IPA and Sculpin come out. those are some great beers.

Edit: I love to take a growler in and get the 'Black eye'. someting about their Porter and IPA blend incredibly well.
