Thanks for the recipe.

My first taste of great lakes beers was burning river. To me thats kinda what it tastes like , a river so polluted that it caught fire I still drink it sometimes when I really want a very bitter beer , goes good with shrimp and finger food especially if chased with a whiskey and cola. To me there is just too much bitter and not enough sweet to balance it out. Im gonna have to try the other varieties.

Thanks Rhoob. That looks fantastic. Didn't expect to see a dry hop, but that beer definitely has a punchy hop character. Will give it a whirl.

QFT. Some 3 years ago I went to the brewpub late one winter evening. I don't remember what it was called, but they had a stout on tap that makes their Blackout (a good, strong stout in its own right) seem like a Bud Light. It was ridiculously good.

Sampled my export tonight. Very nice. I'll see if I can get the recipe posted tomorrow.
Today I listened to a woman explaining to her young daughter that Sully is not a sequel to Monsters Inc.

As for the labels coming off those bottles I soaked mine for an hour or two in hot strong bleach and automatic dishwasher detergent and they came right off. Much of the glue stayed on the bottle but I used a scrub brush and it came right off , so they arent as easy as other brands but not a nightmare though either.
