No, I didn’t sneak off for a beer vacation to California. I found this one at the same place that I found the North Coast Pranqster – a small but interesting bevy in Port Jefferson, NY. At the time of its purchase I hadn’t tried a rye brew yet. Since then, I’ve tried the mother of all ryes – Weyerbacher 12. So, this is an interesting way to go about doing a review. Its like doing a feature on IPAs and starting with Dogfish Head’s 120 minute and trying everything else to live up to that. So I’ll attempt to evaluate this one with as little bias as I can muster!
