What I think is I think I got a lotta drinking to catch up on.

While over on the east side I had a couple of great Mammoth Brewing Co. brews: their Doppelbock, and their 395 IPA (a double IPA, slightly flavored with sage and juniper--their tribute to the eastern Sierra). Highly recommend both of them.
