sweet. I can not wait, the local packy tells me we will be getting Avery sometime next spring. I was pretty stoked when we first got Stone up here last year.

Nice score Jim.

I brewed an Old Jubilation clone last Christmas season. It turned out real close to the Avery.

I have been to the Lagunitas Brewery before. Those guys are interesting......

It's pretty cool that we finally got Stone here in FL.

I also picked up Arrogant Bastard and Stone IPA today, allong with Allagash Tripple, Dogfish Festina Peche, Sierra Nevada Harvest, Saison Dupont, Vuuve, a St Bernardus gift pack, etc...

I myself had a good day at the beer store yesterday. I didn't find any bastard, stone, or SNCA. I found a lower quality beer that I love. Moosehead! I know, its the the highest standard in beer but it is pretty damn good.

My friend claims that Moosehead is dry hopped with special hops (Mary Jane) becuase it has a very skunky smell, plus it makes you feel funny, not like a normal beer.

Is dry hopping with Mary Jane even possible?

Harpoon has the new 100 Barrel Series out: Rauchfetzen.
Pretty good smoked ale.
