Went to the local brewery Saturday night to hear a band, who was awesome BTW. The Wailing O'Sheas. And have a few pints. They have a very nice IPA there, called Googg. Not the best I've had, but very drinkable, and with a couple tweaks, something I would not mind having on tap.
I asked the the brewess for the recipe, and she told me to go scratch! I've asked several brewers, home and pro for recipes, and they were more than happy to share them. Even Sierra Neveda, regarding their ESB. They were very willing to help me. Even had a thread about it hear a year or so ago. It was my understanding that it is common courtsey among brewers to share recipes. Really, you can give 10 brewers one recipe, and end up with 10 different beers. This move on her part really kind of turned me off to the brewery. Her beer is good. Not great, but good. Price is good to, at 2-4$ a pint depending on what it is. And she always has good entertainment. Food is wonderful too, and priced well. Not saying I am going to boycot her, but it just left me kind of sour to her as a person, and brewer. I thought brewers were cooler than that. MAybe she did not get the memo?
