    Jordan Bledsoe is the new owner apparently. I've never heard of him. People on Instagram really giving him hell about the new name.

    Jordan Bledsoe? Pffft. Should change his name to Lombardi Favre, Giannis Rodgers or Yount Yelich.

    Man, fingers crossed Discount Liquor has 4 packs of Strawberry Rhubarb when I'm in town at the end of May.

    Shit rules.

    I've always liked their IPAs, so looking forward to trying this. Expectations are low for the "fruited" side of this.

    New Glarus Break O Day IPA is an above average fruit beer. Juicy apricot is the best way to describe it, but it does have a weird little hop bite to it. Can’t say I remember DFH Aprihop, but it didn’t taste like this I don’t think. Break O Day is terrible as an IPA and should have never been marketed as such.

    has it been that long since Aprihop was made?

    I feel like we have come full circle on fruity IPAs.

    Long time methinks. Probably 8 to 10 years at least.

    Toss in some lactose and everything old is new again.

    So while this thread is active, anyone ever do the Mile of Music Festival in Appleton? Considering attending.

    I think I'm gonna hit up Central Waters on May 29th (they really close at 5pm?) then pull through to Funk Factory. I've played the courses around Madison, anything to recommend around Amherst?
