    Not as good as I remembered it, but it's still pretty good. I usually let Alvarado Street stuff mellow out a bit in the can.[​IMG]

    Anyone else try the thunder in paradise and get completely blown away ? Had it on tap at city beer and imo, was on Monkish levels. Specifically reminded me of the space cookie series from Monkish

    no but now im really interested. in fact i was really interested in all of the beers last week but was so tired on Thursday i headed home instead of swooping them up.

    all of the beer labels last week reminded me of the new muse album cover

    Spent the weekend in Monterey and made two visits to Alvarado. Really enjoyed the brewery. The beer garden is an amazing space and I already regret not brining any cans home (we bought a bunch, just drank them all while still in Monterey). But I do have to ask one thing. What is up with Giants fans? The whole place was there rooting for LA to lose. As a Dodgers fan, I really dislike the Giants, but I can't ever imagine a scenario where I would root for a team from Boston over another team from California. You may not like people from LA, but have you ever met a person from Boston? Really wasn't expecting that.

    Some Giants fans feel that way, but most of them were on "team meteor". But why root for a division rival? At best you'd be indifferent, and if you have no antipathy for the AL team, then of course you're going to root for them.

    Though, really, I don't get the whole "have you met a ___?" thing. I think the concentration of assholes is pretty even across time/space, and SF/LA have a city rivalry the way NY/Boston do, but SF/Boston is not a thing.

    Well you clearly haven't been to Boston then ;). They call them massholes for a reason.

    I was team meteor.

    lol dodger fans acted the same way when the Giants were in the same position, they quickly became Detroit fans.

    ...I grew up in RI. I'm familiar with the area, and I moved out here for a reason. I don't think it's all that different.

    It's like in the Why Your Team Sucks series every single fanbase gets called a bunch of racist thugs, the assholes are everywhere.

    Any of them going to cost less than $4 each? That is about all I am prepared to pay for a tin of beer these days to be honest.
