No, I haven't han any of them but I'll look for them. I think the Pliny wil be easier to find. I'll do some searching for all if them though. If I find some I'll send you some along with some homebrew.

Just opened the Red Rocket Ale and this is good stuff. A bit more hoppy than I expected which is ok with me! nice amber-ish/red-ish color. 6.8% ABV so it's not too big. I may be starting to lean toward Bear Republic as my current favorite brewery. Emphasis on current which means this will probably change next weekend.

My Oktoberfest which I dub Oliviafest after my daughter. Good stuff...I'll definitely do it again (and I'll probably make this beer again, too...it's tasty!).

Ok, I've moved onto the Bear Republic Black Stout. Chocolatey flavor and very smooth. Not a big fan a stouts but I like this one. Red Rocket Ale is better but this one is fine. 8.1% ABV. After 2 bombers of BR brew, I should be feelin' good!

Yeah, Big Bear Stout is just okay. Love the Red Rocket and Racer 5 though.

MMMMM....never had a pumpkin ale I liked...UNTIL NOW.

Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin = great.

Perfect balance. If I could do a beer like this I'd shoot sparks outta my ass.

Entire Butt English Porter.

Got it because I liked the name.

Ok, and I like English Porters.

It's ok, not as heavy as a I like, but it's ok.

It's no Fullers tho....
