Mission Street IPA is back
« on: February 03, 2016, 12:56:34 AM »
Flipping through the latest Fearless Flyer and there is an "article" for Mission Street IPA. It says it is brewed by a brewe hat has been around since 1993 and was at the forefront of the craft movement. To me this says Lagunitas. Anybody try it?

Not this new incarnation. Plenty of the prior stuff though. I'll definitely give it a shot next time I'm in TJ's. Price is right.

Firestone Walker used to brew it. Don't they still?

Steve, didn't they stop last year? That was my understanding.

Drew said Firestone stopped as they needed the capacity. I haven't seen it since I have been back in CA and didn't see it the entire time I was living in Dallas. I figured it wasn't in Texas due to distribution rules.

This piece I read the other day said Uinta. Haven't tried it yet, but Uinta and I go back to 1993, when they were draft only in Salt Lake City, so I'll give it a shot. I love their Hop Nosh IPA.

What's funny is TJ's won't be able to sell it in in their SLC store due to Utah's 4% ABV cap on grocery stores.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

Good to know. I was assuming it was a California brewery.
