Yes I'm hoping to get a little bit on Friday.

Another beer you all should try is this... http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/223/50772/ . Nice, red and tart. Somewhat similar to NG Belgian Red.

Been able to get some Dog Fish Head here in central IL the last few weeks. Really liking a couple of their beers with grape must, which is not something I'm accustom to. The 61 minute IPA is not much of an IPA but is very tasty. Having the Noble Rot now; it is a saison brewed with grape must and is pretty solid. Their India Brown Ale (when very fresh) is possibly one of my favorite non IPAs ever. They also make a good Pilsner (which is not hard to do) but it had some kind of pear juice in it which I haven't seen before. Still not a huge fan of 90 minute and the two bottles of 120 I had really sucked. I still think they are wayyy over hyped but make a few really solid beers and it's nice to have access to them minutes away from my apartment.

I have not had anything from Perennial or Pipeworks. Looks like most of the Friar Tucks in the area have will have Perennial but Pipeworks seems to only be close to the City. Anything special you want if I can get Perennial? Their Chocolate Mint Stout and Black Walnut Dunkel sound good. Urban Chestnut is also a good brewery if your in St Louishttp://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/24764/ Have you had this http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/24903/94617/

I have traded with someone on beer advocate who drank a good amount of pipeworks ipas. I have had the ninja vs unicorn which was good. I dont think they are a brewery that constantly brews to set schedule. This might help "http://pdubs.net/batch/". Just a heads up

Also anyone of you use untappd? I like it a quite a bit. If you do, please add me (not sure if its under relentlesslefty or Joseph Duehlmeyer), or message me to add you. thanks
