The name was only recently changed, you can even still find the old name via google
The whole thing seemed to happen after Bell's wanted to protect its trademark
Primary: Antithesis (Saison+Sauv Blanc)
Secondary: Highrise IPA w/ extra Simcoe and Citra, Split Open & Melt Imperial Stout, Apfelwein + Concentrate
Bottled: Quick n Dirty Berliner Weiss, Smoke Bomb Imperial Smoked Chipotle Porter, Lime Apfelwein

I won second place (out of nine) in a local homebrew contest with Northern Brewer's Caribou Slobber. It definitely is really great for a starter beer.

Brewers Best American Pale Ale was the best so far, i have done NB's cause they are cheap kits but lacking something. I nail every kit i do for the most part and I get that micro brew taste from the BB kits, not so much from the NB kits. Maybe the NB kits are less forgiving but the 5 i did have not turned out the way i like, i can taste that "extract beer" taste for sure...When i do my BB kits, my buddies cant tell if I did all grain or extract

Now if BB would sell a bit cheaper, like get rid of the caps and priming sugar in every box that would be nice...

I brewed this extract recipe last Thanksgiving and kept it in primary until June and then bottled. It's just now coming into its own and I have about half the batch left to save for the Holidays. Probably my favorite ever.
