Default Alabama Celebration Brew

I have been thinking about brewing something this weekend in celebration of Gov Riley signing the free the hops bill. I was thinking about doing a barley wine or an iipa and shoot for an abv of 13.9%. Anyone else in AL planning on doing this?

I just got a 55lb bag of MO. I will certainly brew something to commemorate this day.
The Hops Are Free! Now if only they weren't so expensive.

I kegged an extra pale ale a couple days ago, does that count? This may be the hoppiest beer I've had in awhile, second only to auburn ale house's hop dragon, which tastes like you put a fistful of hops into a blender with some 'normal' IPA.

Should see new brews showing up as soon as next week here in The Ham. I've heard several times that Supreme Beverage had a warehouse full of stuff to be delivered in anticipation.
