So last night I got two six packs of Stone IPA and Dogfish Indian Brown Ale. I drank one of each and woke up with a HUGE rash this morning. I mean, all things considered, I know it might not even be the beer but nothing else had been changed. Has anyone else ever had a rash from only certain types of beer? I have a feeling its coming from the hops in the Stone, but I have no idea.

I've never heard of a hop allergy, but I know I get as red as a tomato when I eat apricots. That said... I risked it and had an Aprihop at the DFH brewery and looked like a tomato for the rest of the evening.

I don't know about Stone, but DFH actually says on the brewery tour that their beers are not allergy friendly, and so it's possible that you're allergic to something used in one of their beers.

Lets see, you got drunk.... woke up with a rash?
There has to be more to this story, lol, like how many chicks your woke up with or you woke up in another country or something, haha. Sounds like the start of Fear & Loathing, but ends as a bad college experience!

Hop allergies do exist, but I doubt they would cause a rash. Just for confirmation, try soaking a sensitive part of your body in the IPA.

Do not post pictures.
