Fat Tire has never been distributed in my area that I am aware of. There are a number of east coast peeps that have migrated to Co. and on their return trips home, regularly bring cases of fat tire back for their friends and family. The cases are usually gone in days! To me that really says something.

I think some of the info there is rather dated. I liked Mad Hatter better than you did, but I agree with it's inclusion. Their Dragon's Milk Barrel-Aged Strong Ale, OTOH - mmmm, yummy!

Bell's, you can't get here anymore and I can't recall the last time I saw Grey's sold here - maybe 5-6 years ago?

If you're going to talk about beers that changed the landscape in Chicago, you have to mention two good beers that fell by the wayside in the late 1990s - Chicago Brewing Company (their Big Shoulders was the first Porter I ever had) and Pavichevich Brewing Company, which made Baderbrau, probably the first area micro.

And something homebrewers can do. Matt Brynlidson's presentation at NHC was full of great tips - so get a copy if you haven't already.

And, yes, I've been looking around the site when I've had time. I'll look to contribute mostly in general techniques and in ingredients - areas where something I've learned about Belgian brewing can be applied.

Sweet, I missed this. I have listened to the podcast from Basicbrewing radio several times now and it has certainly given me tremendous insight into technique.

What a hard task to pull off! I think this is a great list from the stand point of moving the industry along and in new directions. It will be interesting to see what beers will be added over the next 10 years. Thank you Stan.
