    However, I have a good story from a Tech prof about their marketing when they were first starting out.

    It just seems to me that when Surly started, it was all hops, all day, and then Stone went: oh yeah? Watch this! (yes, I know their buddy-pal relationship)
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

      Stone's been around almost a decade longer. They were ALLTHEHOPS long before anyone outside of Minnesota ever heard of Surly.

        Gotcha. So I had it reversed , and Surly (thankfully) failed grandly. Not that I am a fan of regular Surly beers, but their special releases have pleased me.

          Failed? Oh no, I don't think either brewery has failed, at least not outside the eyes of the anti-hopheads.

            I mean failed as in ALLTHEHOPS. They are hoppy, but thankfully they have branched out a bit. For hops beers, Surly has quality beers. They are just not for me. I can appreciate, while not being a fan, of such beers.

                For the Frozen Four, here's another spot I remember going to last time I was in Philly that was good for beer and light food:

                http://www.devilsdenphilly.com/

                It's about five minutes from Ellsworth Federal on the Broad Street Line that runs between Center City and the sports complex where the Wells Fargo Center is located, and in the other direction it's about a five minute walk to Pat's and Geno's for those who are interested in doing a cheesesteak comparison.

                  So... if my hockey gets cancelled tonight (a little light on numbers right now), I can watch the Hawks game and drink instead - of course, the way the Hawks are playing lately, I'll need to drink.

                  What to wish for...

                    perhaps wish that no more players get hurt?

                        Brooklyn apparently has a bourbon-aged beer out. At $22/bomber, though, I passed for now (the store had quite a few, so I don't think they'll run out anytime soon). Anyone try it yet?

                          Stopped in at Northgate Blaine today after work. Asked about KBS. They don't have it yet, should be soon, and I am the first person on the list to get it. Yes.
                          They said they have it in their systems as bombers and 4-packs. I don't remember hearing about it coming in bombers....if I can get one though, I will definitely do that.

                            I never heard of it in a bomber. Only 4-packs, and the limit is usually 1 or 2 12 oz bottles.
