    A local brewery makes this stuff, called Hoptimus. The Brewmaster there is apparently a fan. Great beer too, if you like IPA's. I liked it enough to make it my sig.

    then the narrator's voiceover comes along: "made for sterner stuff."

    dude, they should hire us as copywriters.

    prologue:

    starscream walks over with a bunch of fan girls: "how do you feel mighty megatron; nyeah!" *kicks a drunk passed out megatron*

    Now that is awesome! I'll drink to that!

    Hey I'll be driving my van down to BC. If others are willing to chip in I say was plan accordingly, drive out there, and bring some cases back for the weekend. If you're up for it, PM me!

    This is better than the epilogue I almost posted, which had Megatron waking up the next morning and saying "STARscream?!" :D

    So anyway, after I finish running down some, uh, decepticreeps, me and Megatron start goin' at it, right? And he's all, like, 'I would have waited an eternity for this, Prime,' and I'm all like 'he-e-e-ll, no!'

    Dude, Prime, are you drunk already?

    What? ...No!

    Yeah you are! Christ, you had like half a beer! Man, I can't believe you're such a lightweight!

    Well, I was drinking a bunch before I came here, and I'm on these antibiotics, for my throat... I didn't eat anything all day... Hey, I used to pound energon like it was my freaking JOB, man! Where's Bumblebee, he'll back me up... Bumblebee? Bumblebee..!

    Well not to burst your bubble, but there is a problem with that. This place is a small brewpub. They don't bottle anything, the best you could do is buy a growler and try to keep it cold. It could last you a day or two for Botcon.

    Depending on which way you are going, you could be passing right by it. If you are coming down I-65, you will be within 5 miles of the pub.

    Nice on the ABV but a tad low on the IBUs for my personal preference. I'm a super hop head. :) 

    The label and logo are awesome.

    Do you know off hand what kind of hops are used? I'm big into the fuggle and kent goldings for the IPA I brew. And I hear there's a specific variety that imparts a strong grapefruit like flavor which I'm still trying to track down. The IPA I had at my local spot the other night tasted of hops, toffee and grapefruit...it was unbelievable. One of these days I'll get off my lazy ass and do some research over at tastybrew.com. :D  (Though I kind of don't believe the guys at the microbrewery...I'm willing to bet it's the strain of yeast and NOT entirely the hop variety but ah well.)

    90-100 IBU's too low? Christ man, that is some bitter stuff you like. I enjoy this beer though.

    For those not in the know, IBU stands for International Bittering Unit or sometimes International Brewing Units. It stands for how bitter a beer is. For a comparison Bud or Bud light would be like a 10. But those are not real beers. Yeah, I said it, those are NOT real beers. All major American domestics are beers marketed towards women, been that way since WWII. So the next time you feel like pounding a sixer, remember you're drinking a woman's beer. Break the habit and go to your local microbrew.

    I'm done ranting. The microbrew that serves the hoptimus refuses to sell Bud, Bud Light, Coors, etc... Keeps a certain type of crowd away.

    So all those commercials they have filled with scantily clad women are really aimed at other women?
