Houston we have a problem...

We hope everyone had a great New Year, and is primed and ready for a great 2013.  In the middle of all the holiday craziness we had a computer go down, and it had to be rebuilt.  In that process we lost our ability to update the draftlist, menus etc in the side bar.  We are currently working on reestablishing this ability but for the time being most of the information in the side bar will not be up to date.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may be causing you. 

As I am sure some of you are aware Russian River is no longer going to be available here in our great state, for a couple reasons.  We will give you a quick run down of the major reasons:  1. they can't keep up with current demand in their home state, why ship it 800 miles when you can sell it right at your pub  2. they don't have as much control over their brand when it is in our state due to the way some of the liquor laws are written.  While this is unfortunate news, and Pliny the Elder, Damnation and their Sour beers will be missed, it is not the end of the world.   Geoff Kaiser over at Seattle Beer News, who is much better versed in the prose than I am wrote a couple of nice articles speaking exactly to this point, in one of them you can even read the letter that we are paraphrasing. We have one last keg that we will be tapping soon, it will be announce here, on Facebook, and Twitter.  Keep your eyes peeled for that!  There will be no shortness of Ipa's have no fear.
