I just got back from Russian River Brewing in Santa Rosa CA. My fourth trip this year!

The "Compunction" was an outstanding beer. Described as a Sour Blonde Ale with Pluots, it was extremely sour and acidic (just the way I like it).

Of course, I also drank my share of Pliny.

If ever traveling through this part of California, you'll be doing yourself an injustice if you don't stop at Russian River.

Rub it in...

Well, we need more details. Any other "sick" beers? I do want to get there some day.
Before I learned to brew I was poor, sober and lonely. Now I am just poor.

We need to just start sending them checks, not to buy beer, just to help pay to get their production up so the rest of the country can get their damn beers regularly! Rant over, sorry.

Brewtopia is indeed a bastid

I had the Younger a couple of times over two weeks. The hop flavor just got stronger and stronger. Did you get a taste?

I hope that the name of the Pale Ale w/Brett is Deification and not Defecation!

Looks like beer heaven to me.
