Hey Man! Yeah, even after 4 months, this still had so much flavor and aroma it was ridiculous. When I unscrewed the cap of the growler at the last BOSS meeting, you could smell the hops before even pouring it.

This recipe was chosen by the local Rock Bottom (Orland Park, IL) to be their GABF Pro-Am entry this year. I will be brewing it with their brewer in August.

Brewing this August 9th at Rock Bottom. Due to new GABF regulations, only one beer for the entire rock bottom chain can be entered in GABF pro-am. Luckily, they chose this one

Brewed this up at Rock Bottom yesterday, had a blast. It was nice to get some experience before the equipment arrives for our brewery. I attached a few pics from the brew day. The big container of hops is the dry hops, 8lbs in a 7BBL batch. There was another 8lbs in the boil in 3 additions.

For folks in the area, this will be tapped at rock bottom Orland park on 8/29 @ 6pm. It will be called "It's Always Sunny." When I entered it in the comp, I called it "Hop-Hop-Hop-a-delphia." Those that watch the show will get that.
