    new brewery alert! Wolf's Ridge Brewing (full disclosure: I work there) on N. 4th, downtown. No actual beer yet. Food is the bomb.com. Keep your eyes peeled.

    Big Bad Baptist is good stuff, fun fact they use a different coffee every time it is brewed.

    Heard about this place opening...was intrigued. You guys don't plan on doing anything crazy from what I read amirite?
    Also heard of pigskin brewery opening up (or already did). No idea what either are really about.
    Also, prairie is coming?!? Can't wait to try some shit from them.

    We're now getting beer from No-Li out of Spokane, WA
    None of it sounds particularly interesting but if they're cheap enough I'll try 'em out.

    I don't think so. Just waiting tables, but from what it seems like, nothing too crazy initially. I'll definitely keep it updated here. I tried the still-fermenting IPA last week and it was good, so it seems like they've got their basics down. The chef is apparently a good homebrewer too, and they've got a decent sized system in there, so I'm optimistic.

    Some dude on BA is claiming the Big Bad Baptist is getting sent back to Epic because it's over 12%. Anyone else heard anything about this? I better go pick some up today if so..

    I really wish an Ohio brewery would lobby to get the 12% ABV cap lifted. No Sweet Repute for Ohio!

    Really excited about Prairie, looks like I'll be visiting my parents in Toledo a little more often. I could see myself getting a case of 'Merica and Gold.

    I emailed Ramos' office last week to see if they're still working on it and got this reply:

    Any chance we could get a Mod to attach the correct prefix on this guy? I am too dumb to remember to look in the Mid-West when trying to find Ohio. Gene?

    Whoops! Sorry about that. Fixed.

    Also, the new Jackie O's/Tired Hands collaboration APA 'Lizard Queen' is rolling around the taps right now.

    I tried the above mentioned Jackie O's/Tired Hands beer today at the Ohio Taproom and was a bit underwhelmed. A good beer but not really worth the $18-20 a growler it's going for around town. I kind of wish the two of them had done something a little more interesting, I guess. I ended up getting a growler of Rhinegeist Fiction Belgian IPA instead. It's the first I've had from them and the sample was great.
