Check out this fine East Coast band out of Athens, Georgia. It's considered Southern Country and Alt-country with a "three axe attack".

The Drive By Truckers

Other than that just want the Bells coming back East this time around.

Me 2.

I can't get it locally. I actually got to try this fine IPA in North Carolina. I want to try their Brown Porter the next time I get a chance. It won Gold in the 2008 GABF.

Nugget Nectar is a very good beer.  Pretty well balanced at >90IBU. ;D

+1

A very good EC beer. Imperial Amber seasonally brewed between January and March.

We working on the brew stand sat. bluesman? I think we have to grind down some of the twelve inchers to fit them in. Because we didnt completely follow the instruction there has been enough weld distortion to make them to tight. The frame is all pretty damn square and all, just a little arch in the horizontal members on the top.

Could be all welded up this weekend. Any luck with the punched plates for the casters?

Absolutely!

No problem. I'm ready when you are.  8)

Where we headin' for lunch this time Chef Capp?

I like Stone IPA just as much as I like DFH 60. I am an IPA kinda guy. Lots of hops and the fresher the better.

I am also a fan of more balance than the standard in my IPA's, more mouthfeel, some crystal malt. I think the yeast is a big player as well. But the hops are the showcase hands down.

Has anyone tried  Clipper City Loose Cannon out of Baltimore, MD. This is an EC IPA that is highly hopped, over 3lb/barrel.

Where's the information for submitting entries?  I've poked around the site a couple of times but didn't see it.  I'm sure it's right in front of my face.

Here's the link.

It depends on what kind of deals are available. Blichmann kettles are pricey, but they sure are fine looking kettles. I have one keggle, so I may get the Capster to help me out on converting some kegs.

How about some spices like allspice and clove. Just use a very small amount in the secondary of a porter. One could also add some bourbon as well. If you add bourbon...Denny's ears will be burning.  :D

I want to try this beer in all of it's West Coast glory.  ;D

In the IPA Superbowl of Eastern Conference vs. Western Conference, I don't think Torpedo would even be in the playoffs, Bluesman - they have a talented team, but just can't represent.

 :D

God Bless The Greatful Dead!

OK...more pics

Here I am cutting some of the crossmembers.



Capozoli welding some of the crossmembers as he talks about the fresh killed chickens down on Kensington Ave.   :o



It was hard getting shots of Capp welding because that TIG welder generates 11,000F. It can blind you.



Preparing to weld the front frame assembly.



After that we headed down to Thang Long Vietnamese Restaurant on Kensington Street in Philly where we ordered Pho for lunch. It was close enough to the shop that we walked.  Excellent food!  8)
