Got this one from my LHBS
SNowy Mountain APA
(actually, it's not hoppy enough as I brewed it to be a true APA)
8 oz. American crystal 20L
8 oz. Dextrine malt (Cara-Pils)
Steep: Crush the grains and steep between 150-170 degrees for 30 minutes

6.6 lb. Light malt extract
Boil: 60 minutes SG 1.086 3 gallons boiled, top up to 5 gallons
1 oz Irish Moss with 20 minutes to go
Hops: 1 oz. Perle (8% AA, 60 min.) (original recipe calls for 2 oz)
.5 oz. Cascade (6% AA, 15 min.)
.5 oz. Cascade (aroma)
Yeast: Safale US-05
Log: Dry hopped 1 oz Cascade for 1 week

Turned out very clear, pretty red beer. A crowd pleaser at the family Thanksgiving dinner.
In Primary: Apfelwein
In Primary 2: Shaggy Brown Ale
In Primary 3:Nothing
In Secondary: Empty
In Keg: Snowy Mountain APA (kicked), Nameless Pale Ale

My favorite of my own is in my pull down, my Brown Ale...

My second favorite is Yooper's dead guy clone...in HER pull down...(but she might slap your hand if you touch her pulldown without askin)

My third favorite has to be BM's Centennial Blonde.

Revvy's one of the cool reverends. He has a Harley and a t-shirt that says on the back "If you can read this, the bitch was Raptured. - Madman

I gotta tell ya, just between us girls, that Revvy is HOT. Very tall, gorgeous grey hair and a terrific smile. He's very good looking in person, with a charismatic personality... he drives like a ****ing maniac! - YooperBrew
