Heretic Evil Twin
« on: February 07, 2012, 11:47:49 AM »
Well, since most everything I know about brewing came from JZ's "brewstrong" podcasts, I had to give this a try.  It wasn't easy getting some, as I live in Washington State, but I thought it was a very nice red ale.  Which, is one of my favorite styles.  I hope Heretic starts distributing in Wa soon.

I want to try his beers very badly. As it is I have no hope for seeing any of them in Texas. For goodness sake I've never even tasted Pliny! :-[

Don't get too excited Euge.  Read the shipping policy first.

It's interesting that Wa is on that list.  I live in Wa, and they delivered to me.

I'm in Virginia.  I didn't read the shipping policy ahead of time.  When I put in my address at checkout it said, "Sorry, no can do."  Or words to that effect.

Worth a shot to try it I guess if they haven't updated the that statement in awhile.  I imagine they're trying to get more states added as they go along.

I was told by Jamil's secretary that they were 95% sure they were going to be there. I'll be getting an email shortly to confirm that but I do think he will be there pouring.  :)

I chimed in with a "Not as far as I know" ;)

I asked the pro-night guys to put together a google doc with all of the info on confirmed/tentative breweries, but since they have day jobs they haven't done it yet.  Although I know for a fact one of them was on TV today doing a beer/food pairing for a local daytime show, so clearly he's slacking!

The main problem for Heretic (or any brewery) is that they need to be posted in WA - if they can't legally bring the beer to WA then they can't serve it.

So Tom, does that mean my 10 remaining bombers of Evil Twin are contraband?

LOL.

It really is a very solid Red Ale.  Nice head, nice color, and quite tasty.
