I brewed a clone of it from Austin home brew and it was pretty good. No idea if it was close to the real one or not but I did like it.

I can totally do the 30th.... andy's or three wise monks, no preference!

I did a moose drool clone last year (from an NB kit). It was very close to actual Moose Drool if you're patient with it. Kind of like with my fat tire clone, I found the fresh beer hop aromatics to be a bit too much. After a couple of conditioning weeks it was right in the zone, though, and stayed that way for a long time. I had it in bombers and finished my last one in early September from an early April brew.

I think it's a good beer and you'll enjoy it. For me, I think I'm gonna try to perfect the fat tire clone before I go back to it. I have been reading about New Belgium's yeast being a Belgian descendant (duh), which is nothing like what I used and probably the biggest reason for the flavor differential.

Damn you. Now I need to brew. I'm totally getting the itch.

Alright. So the 30th it is. Doesn't matter to me about the location, three wise monks is a decent place. The time I went they had a good selection of 8-10 beers on tap.

So what time and where on saturday? I'd prefer something around 3-4 just because it's supposed to a pretty nice day, so i'd like to go on a hike in the AM. Andy's or Three Wise Monks?
