    The 2002 Kings were fun to watch. Though the Lakers series's officiating made basketball a lot less fun and I hardly watch them anymore.

    Anyone know what happened to the guys from Odonata? In my #newmoney days, I thought they were amazing.

    Now there's a story! Quick version, one of the owners works for another brewery around town, the other sells hops and one of their former wives continues to ruin everything good about beer that she can get her hands on . Including Odonata...

    I don't know if I like Device or Track 7 more. Those are definitely my two favorite. Although Mraz and Bike Dog are also great.

    They just started distributing here actually. Best thing to happen since I moved away from the Bay.

    Mraz and Bike Dog are my favorites. Track 7 is solid too.

    There are currently only two Cellarmaker accounts in the Sac area. Final Gravity and Pangaea...

    I wish it were just Final Gravity that got it in. They aren't charging $12 for a 6 ounce pour of Bourbon County Stout, I can only imagine how pricey the Cellarmaker will be at that other place.

    Final Gravity! I've never been there. I'm sorry. (You must be the owner.) My mom lives right by Capitol Beer right now and that is her local spot, and was my local spot for awhile. I know I need to visit Final Gravity one of these days, I just don't make it out to Roseville much. They told me about Pangaea and that... Saddened me. Because I know it'll be expensive as hell.

    No worries. Kenny runs an awesome shop. I'd be there everyday too if I lived nearby.

    $7.50 for a pint of the pale ale they just got in. That's a fine price to me. Though they had some stuff before and it was a bit more than it probably should have been. For me, it's still cheaper to go there instead of drive to Roseville for FG. I really like FG but unfortunately it's just not conveniently located for me. I end up at Capitol Taproom most times I go out though.

    I know the Lakers are terrible this year, but I turned on the TV and the kings are whipping them tonight which still makes me happy. Suck it Kobe!
