What have you learned, TBbrewer?

Well, I -- I think that it -- if
I ever go looking for my heart's desire
again, I won't look any further than my own
backyard. Because if it isn't there, I
never really lost it to begin with! Is
that right?

Maybe I will try it again next year. My issue with it and pliny immediately were filtering. You dont filter dry hopped beers. And there is no way to get that clarity without doing so unless is sits for a while and loses the quality

I am pretty hard headed, so I am not sure......
I guess my issue is when you set the bar at the highest point every year, you have to show up with your A game, and if you dont, it is on you. Bells has been a consistent quality brewery that has always been impressive even when I am not a fan of the style they are brewing. I have a lot of respect and expect nothing but the best from them. Maybe my expectations are too high, or they set the bar that high? Am I in the wrong to expect consistency?

I think I've like all of their beers. I'm pretty sure I've had Hopslam and liked it.

Larry Bell, the founder, shows up down here occasionally. I met him at World of Beer on Linebaugh a couple of years ago. Keep your eyes peeled and maybe you can tell him in person.

He's known as a dick, but I liked him. He told me some great stories of illegal brewing in Michigan.
