My Cascades are only about 8' tall, but I've been picking cones since mid May. I've got a couple of ounces so far.

I am pretty impressed that they are making such dramatic changes to their lineup and discontinuing regulars. I wish other biggies would follow suit. Looks like this is a couple of weeks old but I was not aware...Ruination is by far my least favorite Stone Beer-all I tastes is the dish soap my parents washed my mouth out with when I cussed. My daughter loves it but I can't drink it. I like their other beers, especially the Smoked Porter, but to me Ruination is not something I would buy again.
Let me clarify. On pay day I would buy a six pack, or a couple of Samuel Smith bottles, as long as they had pry off lids. Those were days of either relative poverty or money flowing everywhere, never anything in between and steady, but I could usually find a couple of dollars to buy a decent beer. Between paydays I drank crappy canned beer, so the accumulation was slow.I started saving bottles in the late 80's with the idea that one day I would brew beer and need them. In 1992 we moved to a new much bigger house, my wife decided if I was going to haul crates of empty bottles I should start learning to fill them. She bought me my first kit 5 gallon setup and it was off to the races from there.
Dang, 12 years of bottles would be a barn full for me.
