Trying to get my hands on some of this. My local guy says that he will have it around 1PM but I'd hate to go there and just stand around waiting... though I could grab a glass and do some "tasting". Trying to find what bars are going to have it tonight, I may have to wander out if some place close has it:



"Sandy Relief Beer started as a video project by Matt Furman and Niko Krommydas, but quickly morphed into a collaborative relief effort by eight local breweries after Hurricane Sandy devastated Long Island and destroyed Barrier Brewing Company in Oceanside.

The participants gathered at Blue Point Brewing Company on December 04, 2012 and brewed Surge Protector IPA, an India Pale Ale, to raise proceeds for victims of Hurricane Sandy and the recovering brewery.

Each brewery donated an ingredient for Surge Protector IPA, exhibiting the solidarity of Long Islandís beer community."

Got my hands on some Bells Hopslam tonight. Bottled 1/10/13, so pretty fresh. Very hoppy and enjoyable. I've been wanting to try this one for a while and it definitely didn't disappoint.

First bottle of my home brew and I'm very pleased with the results. I think it's time to scale this operation up.

Beautiful head retention, congrats on the first brew!!

If you didn't on this beer, try tossing in some Irish Moss at the end of your next boil (unless you're making a wheat beer). It helps coagulate the proteins and removes a lot of the haze from the beer.

^ My friend told me the exact same thing. I sent him a picture of the boil because I was worried it was too cloudy and he assured me it was normal and that I could fix it with some Irish moss.

Hmm.. Seems like peanut butter would be a hard flavor to produce.. Unless they're using an extract?

I am really digging almost anything from Stone Brewery, especially their IPA's.
Ruination, Arogant Bastard, and Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale. All nice and hoppy with a good 6.8-7.9 ABV

There is a dry peanut powder that I know a few breweries have used. Real peanut butter has too much oil, it kills head retention and can go rancid.

I had one... well worth the hype.

I can't find it anywhere. If anyone can find and procure a 6pack for me... well....
