On a flawless Saturday in July, waterfront on Lake Hopatcong was an appropriate setting for the throw down. The guys picked KaBob's restaurant which has outdoor seating, a sizable downstairs pub, and one of the better draft selections on the lake. I couldn't think of a better establishment in the area to hold a throw down at.

Although, a bit hoppier and more body than version A thanks to the citrus hops and flaked barley. This is the first time I've had a beer with "Falconer's Flight" hops - HopUnion's proprietary blend of Pacific Northwest "C" hops honoring Glen Hay Falconer, a legend in the Pacific Northwest brewing world.

Although, those who were able to get a taste of both "A" and "B" filled out a survey resulting in the majority of drinkers that day leaning towards Version A.

Another successful tasting with the Stibinger Brothers in the books... There's talk of a black IPA and a rye infused hefeweizen in the works. Stay tuned for more from these guys in the near future.
