I am not sure how many here even read this side anymore but I just read that HOTD will be closing.  Looks like Alan Sprits, the brewer/owner, wants to retire and is closing up shop.  When I first had an Adam Bier from HOTD it was like nothing else I had consumed at the time.  I have a few of his beers kicking around so it may be time to crack them and enjoy them one last time.

 

It does make me wonder how many breweries that were pioneers in the early years will just ride off into the sunset once the owners want to retire.  Marin brewing just announced something similar.  Both of these brands take me back a few years.

I read it.  I've got nothing to add here though.  I've never had beers from either of these breweries.

Makes me feel old.  Both of those breweries were ones I would trade for when I started beer trading.  Seems so long ago ...lol

I never did the beer trading thing beyond trading homebrews with a few people.  I also didn't get deeper into craft beer until probably 2009 and even then it was more local.  for a long time I mostly just drink common stuff like Guinness, Belhaven, Smithwicks and whatever the local breweries were at the time (Redhook, Portsmouth Brewery, Smuttynose, Longtrail, Harpoon, etc.).
