  1. From "castello" :

    Well done. Years ago my buddies and I would say Sierra was the beer that all beer is judged by.
    I think some love should be given to Mendocino Brewery as they were the first Brew pub(food and beer)in Cali, second in the nation.

  2. From "ChrisQ" :

    Agreed, Mendocino was a trailblazer

  3. From "Robin" :

    Great review man. I like the looks of that beer. Were you dkrniing it from a New Castle Brown ale Glass? I like New Castle, and I can get a twelve pack for under 10 bucks.Cheers
