    I agree. This should be an oasis. I just have a hard time compartmentalizing given the scope of the problem. As it relates to beer, I was in Brussels in August last year and it was 96°. Talked to one of the tour guides at Cantillon and was told that climate change has had an effect on the yields of fruits that they use so bottle counts have decreased as a result. It's a bummer of a topic but it's inescapable.

    Anyway, I'll stop. hehe

    I got the last cans of Reality Czeck at Toronado on Friday. Same thing happened at home in Seattle when pFriem Pilsner cans first came out.

    Logged on here specifically to ask if anyone knows east bay spots that got it. Now this might make it harder to find than I thought. Anyway, anyone seen it in the EB at all?

    do any of you east bay folk ever go to Shadow Puppet brewing? I have been working there in production for 6 months and I'm just curious to hear opinions. it's my first industry job, I mainly just clean shit; so any negative opinions won't rub me the wrong way.

    I really like the new Lupi recipe, it's definitely better than Livermorium, but Livermorium seems to sell waaay faster

    I have since been told the Cooler and Hop Asylum (formerly Imperiale) are places for it if anyone is still looking.

    K&L has a raffle going for it. But I think you would have needed to be on their mailing list and have purchased something in the past few months to participate.
