    So true, I went there last year and had maybe 5 different IPAs? Couldn't tell you which ones they were or what was different about them though.

    i think most feel the same with all the modern haze boi brewers. two biggest highlights from FOBAB (peach lost abbey thing aside) was the half acre michelada and the mon cheri pie i picked up afterwards.

    Lost Abbey wins a gold at GABF, then a gold at Fobab for a different beer, along with runner-up for best in show. Hmm

    126.43

    12 + 6 = 18

    4 - 3 = 1

    18 - 1 = 17

    17 = Q

    Same feels. Went to OH in February with my girlfriend and I drank through several "oat cream IPAs" and couldn't pick one from the other. My gf was like "Would it kill them to make a saison or something?..."

    Big thanks to beeraficionado for answering my questions, I'll be at the Rev brew pub today at 11 since I can't really be in the city at 4 pm. Also planning on finally visiting middlebrow for lunch after, very excited for both.

    Apparently there is a Benthic sale in 10 minutes..

    I can't try because I won't be here, but hopefully some of you do because Benthic is just so dang good.

    Probably the most painless beer release ever. Nice work Half Acre.

    Agreed that was nice and smooth, grabbed the two lots I wanted and moved along with my morning. I hope the other beer releases today go as smoothly.

    It is, and it's amazing. Thanks for being beautiful.

    Also rev was amazing as always. I miss the city.
