This Beer Will Cost You

For the first time that I can remember, Buffalo Bill's Alimony Ale is now available here in Albuquerque. We have always gotten the seasonals Orange Blossom and Pumpkin Ale (also now in stores), but the beer that made Buffalo Bill's famous was for some reason not distributed here. Now that it is, I'm not actually suggesting you get overly excited about it. I just wanted to write about something, and this 6.8%, 70 IBU IPA was asking for it. Alimony Ale is an old school IPA, first brewed back in 1987. It is primarily hopped with Cascade, so if you are a fan of the Sierra Nevada Pale Ale type beers you might want to shell out the eight bucks for a six-pack.

ah the good old days of drinking Alimony Ale ("Bitterest Beer in America") fresh from the tap at "The Buff" in Hayward California. Alas, Bill Owens is long gone from the Buffand I no longer draw at the Buff counter (too far away)
