Stone Brewing and Charity

so, MM and I went to a charity event last night at the bar called The Penguin last. There was a raffle and silent auction. I thought I would report on the beer I drank and one of things I bid on.

First the bid, a signed Pedro ball! It sold for $240! I peaked at below $200. I think it might be worth over $400.

Second the beer,... I tried a few by Stone Brewing Co. of San Diego. the IPA was great - right there with Harpoon's - great fruitiness:) the other one I tried was Whoa Nelly! 7.2% alcohol. It was quite good, but definitely had a kick. A few of them and you would be on your butt.

Very cool, Bro. I believe my buddy Robbie in SD reviewed both of those recently on his site, Greetings from America's finest city. Check it out and I'll direct him here as well.

I'll have to look for that Harpoon beer the next time I go shopping. Glad you liked ABA! If you get the chance, try their Smoked Porter. I'll do a review of that within a few days.

BTW, you should try their Ruination IPA. Very bitter. High alcohol content. Not for light drinkers. I'll review that one as well but I've got a few others in front of it in my fridge. LOL

Charity and drinking...nice mix! Perhaps I should consider that for my next autism fundraiser?
