Well we didn’t end up getting Arrogant Bastard to the dismay of a few bloggers to this site. It is a great beer but we were out of IPA, so we needed to get an IPA on. I know what you are going to say, Stone Brewing Co is a Southern Cali aka West Coast brewery everything is hopped out crazy like. But I am sure that you will enjoy the Ruination IPA from Stone as a suitable substitution for our Bottle Rocket. The Ruination stands up to the west coast style of stuffing hops in everywhere. The web site says that it is Magnum and Centennial hops in this one. But there has to be others in there too, we are thinking late additions of Summit but hey what do we know. Try one and let me know what you think.

Mack, my apologies about the 5 C’s being in the works. I put it up in the beginning of the week and then we realized that we didn’t have the correct hops in house for the 5 C’s IPA. So you will have to try our Imperial IPA when you get here. I am sure it will cure your fix for hops!

Secondly we put back on our Oatmeal stout and once again tweaked the recipe just a little bit, and it worked out beautifully. We are going to have to send this one to GABF this year! So tasty.

That’s all for now
