St. MOB will be conducting an outing to Three Floyds brewery on April 26th. Our mission is simple--commiserate with fellow beer lovers, eat some BBQ, and bring home a few bottles of the coveted Dark Lord Russian Imperial Stout. We shall most likely pack off that Friday evening and set up camp somewhere close by. Anyone not already a member wishing to join us on the trip should contact one of us via email.
Here are some pics of the 2006 release.

The large hand-hammered copper kettles remain to this day at the bottom of what is now known as Prairie Creek Reservoir. Munsee remained in the area the remainder of his days working toward the goal of establishing a fine brewing tradition in the
