Lagunitas is my hometown brewery and their IPA is a staple in these parts, though I tend to agree with brewt00l that it's not everything you think of when you hear IPA. Currently in my fridge is a group of bombers of their "Sonoma Farmhouse" label Hop Stoopid, a double IPA that definitely gets the hops in your face. I remember one night where I (uncautionably) drank 2 or 3 of these. It was like eating too much garlic -- I felt like the hop aromas were coming out of my skin for the next couple of days.

brewt00l, if you're interested in some Lagunitas or other quality Bay Area beers, we can talk. I have spent a bit of time in the Lancaster/Lebanon county area for work and had the chance to sample quite a few of the fine beers the region has to offer. We can't get Troegs, Sly Fox or Dogfish in these parts. I was particularly impressed with Sly Fox's single hop IPA series and their Pale Ale and Pilsner in cans. I still remember leaving their brewpub on the way to the airport and stuffing those cans into my luggage in the parking lot.

Also in my fridge is the remainders of a 6-pack of newcastle which I purchased the weekend I brewed my first batch of Orfy's Mild-Mannered Ale -- wanted to remind myself what brown was about. It didn't do much to convince me that this is a style I'm really into (no offense to the hardcore newcastle fans out there).

I appreciate the offer and I will keep it in mind after I ship out my 888. We get a pretty wide assortment of Lagunitas, and cali brews in general, here and I have had Brown Sugga, Lucky 13, Lumpy Gravy, Cappuccino Stout, Kill Ugly Radio. I think that Lucky 13 and Lumpy Gravy have been my favorite Lagunitas brews to date. Just did a recent west coast trade for some Ale Smith, Ballast Point (who just started distributing to PA) and Oggis. Ale Smith was a definite standout.

Stopped into 99 Bottles in Federal Way, WA today and felt like a kid in a candy store. Just to keep it easy I stuck with beers made in the USA. Here is what I added to my inventory.....

Avery Mephistopheles Imperial Stout (10 bucks for a 12oz, but Evan! swears it's the best RIS out there)

Dick's Imperial Stout
Dick's Barleywine
(Dick's is a small brewery in Centralia WA)

Dogfish Head Burton Baton IPA
Dogfish Head Midas Touch (I have to try it once)

Avery Collaboration not Litigation Ale
Butte Creek Train Wreck Barleywine
Lagunitas Gnarlywine
Allagash Four (Quadruple)
Ommegang Chocolate Indulgence

Looking forward to sampling these guys.

I just grabbed some Gulden Draak and a six pack of New Castle. Surprisingly I had never had New Castle up until this point. Usually I buy local microbrews, like Howe Sound, Phillips, KB, Granville Island or Tree Brewing. As well, Grolsh's usually find their way into the fridge.
