So I took my DIPA to one of the local craft brewers here, and he absolutely loved it. Said IPA is his favorite style, and he'd never had one like mine. He liked it so well, he has asked me if I would brew it on his 1 bbl system! He will put it on tap, and sell it in his brewery! I am pretty effing stoked! Just had to brag, haven't been able to hold it in.  8)  ;D

That's awesome!  Which brewery and when will it be on tap?

Exactly! Hopefully he will let you have plenty to drink of it too.

See if he'll enter it in the GABF as a pro-am, if it's not too late for that.

Cool beans! Does he have access to all the hops you use? I guess on a 1 bbl system you could buy them on the homebrew scale.

It is always fun to do a commercial batch of one of your recipes. Congradulations.

I have done a couple of 7 bbl batches of my recipes with a local pub.  This is not a AHA/BJCP sanctioned competition, so the beer is not eligible for the GABF Pro-Am. The brewer looked into that last year, and that was what the rules say.
