I saw Expedition on the shelves over the weekend...could be left over from last year, but the store doesn't have a big supply so I'd be surprised.

Agreed on Stone being a WORLD CLASS brewery. Those guys inspired me to start brewing, as did Sierra Nevada. They put out quality brews on a consistent basis...big body, big taste, lots of hops...those guys know how to go big and keep it balanced.

I went on the tour of Stone back in June during a visit to San Diego. We had lunch at the Bistro also. The food was good but expensive. The tour was very basic for the tourists. I would have liked more detail but that would have bored the others I'm sure. The free beer tasting at the end was the best. I discovered their Russian Imperial Stout. Damn, you can tar a road with that stuff. The tour guide was drinking a beer while he lead the tour ... my kind of gig!

Don't get me wrong, I am a Stone fan. Like i said, I think what they are doing as far as success and bringing craft beer to a larger audience is great. I just feel that some of their more recent beers have been sub par compared to their previous ones. Their 11th anniversary was one of my favorite beer, but for whatever reason, it just doesn't taste the same now. I get a more grassy, almost dirty taste with it, same as witht heir 13th. It's the same flavor I've noticed in my beers when dry hoping with pellets, which is why I attributed it to that. But I am still a fan and support them when I can. I mean, they did pretty much, put San Diego on the map for craft beer. Or at least made the sign bigger

I checked bell's site today and they don't relase expedition until november so it must be last years. If we had some near me i would snatch it up..it being left over would just make it better. Bell's claim is that it will get better for years.

I've been perusing their tasting notes for the Epic series, and it looks like the same issue with changing flavors keeps popping up (they taste each previous years' brew on the day the current year's brew gets released). Nice to know they're at interested in how well their stuff keeps.

Yeah the problem is Iowa they got to get there fingers in on that money so they have some screwy laws about beer. Up untill this year you couldn't get higher ABV beers in the store. I would either have to go to Il. or drive to a place up north 2hr and im not sure how he was getting them. Got to love John's grocery.

I haven't seen the bell's I will look to see if I can get it here in town thank's for the tip.
