is it that nobody has heard of the Hopslam or is it that everybody has it at their corner bar?

Or that I didn't see your post. I've actually not had the hopslam, but Bells can do no wrong in my book, and I keep meaning to give the hopslam a try. I don't think it's on tap anywhere here in Ann Arbor.

I live in a small college town. One bar had Hopslam on tap. It did not last long even at $4.50 a pint.

My local liquor store has it on tap for 12.00 for a growler. Very good stuff. I drank a growler the other night.... it took me a minute to get out of bed the next morning.

It's amazing stuff in the bottle and god like on tap. I love the stuff and can feel it after one pint. Last time I was drinking some I had one beer and then was just shooting the **** because I had to drive. Then the bartender accidentally pulled a pint of hop when he was supposed to be pulling a normal pale. His mistake, and my bounty because he gave it to my brother and I to split.
