A friend of mine brought me a bottle of alpha king back from a trip to chicago. I loved it, and as far as I can tell it's not distributed in MA. Clearly the solution is to make my own. Web searching found an old email from the Nick Floyd. Does anyone have any other info, or a copy of the old BYO recipe?
