That is good to know!
Tonight I am going to a Pelican brewer's night in Bellingham. A few years ago we visited that brewery and it was fantastic top to bottom. I'm hoping to see some limited or special releases at the event tonight. We get the cream, IPA, silverspot IPA and stout frequently in town.

Had to go to Richland tonight for an all day training tomorrow. Went to the Atomic Ale brewpub and had the Atomic Amber and Half-Life Hefe, both were excellent, and some good pizza too. I don't recommend going to the tri-cities ever if you can help it, but if you're ever sentenced to a night there, I recommend checking them out.
Went to a brewers night tonight in BHAM at The Copper Hog. Found out that Alpine Brewing (out of CA) was purchased by Green Flash Brewing (San Diego). They had a tap takeover between the two of them. Fantastic breweries for the hop heads. The non-hoppy beers were OK but if you are an IPA fan this would have been a boner fest for you. That is a good thing. Boners are great.
Anybody down in San Diego?? There is a sweet special release at Alesmith.
Originally a faint idea dreamt up by Tony Gwynn and Peter Zien, the now imperial version of their collaboration, San Diego Pale Ale .394, will make an appearance in our 20th Anniversary Specialty Release Series. All proceeds from this beer will go towards raising funds for the Tony Gwynn Museum which will honor this hall of famer and raise money for TAG (Tony & Alicia Gwynn Foundation) at AleSmith's new facility.
HALL OF FAME IMPERIAL SAN DIEGO PALE ALE .394 (ABV 9%)
AleSmith's Hall of Fame version of the legendary Tony Gwynn .394 San Diego Pale Ale pays tribute to the one and only Mr. Padre and his commitment to excellence. Just like its predecessor, this "imperial" or "double" .394 is bursting with even more American hops, lending the beer a diverse palate of citrus, tropical fruit, and pine. Tony envisioned this beer in early 2014 and AleSmith is honored to make another one of his dreams come true.
"Tony Gwynn was incredibly proud to be a member of the San Diego community; he impacted lives all over the world. He was the heart, soul, and flavor of San Diego for so many years and now you can taste his passion with every sip." - Alicia Gwynn
