Need Beer? We're giving away a GoodLife gift certificate

There's always new beers to sample and we're here to help.

GoodLifeHere at the Source Weekly, we do our damndest to sample all the latest beers from Bend's master brewers. Shoot, we even made it down to 10 Barrel yesterday to try their "new and improved" Apocalypse IPA.

While we haven't made it in to sample GoodLife's new "29er," India Brown Ale, we plan to soon. In the mean time, we were hoping one of y'all could tell us what to expect. There is a precedent for this so-called IBA, by the way (see, Dogfish Head India Brown Ale). 

Here's how to earn a $25 gift certificate to GoodLife:

Like us on Facebook and leave us a comment describing this new IBA. No need to get all namby-pampby on us—we're not in Sideways. Just tell us how it tastes. We'll pick a winner by the end of the day.

Oh, and two thumbs up for the latest iteration of 10 Barrel's IPA. To read exactly what we thought, see Microcosmos in this week's issue, on stands today. To read brewmaster Jimmy Seifrit's description of the new brew, see below.

New Apocalypse IPA- We took the chance to redesign our flagship beer with the opening of new brewing facility. The brew team sat down and took a fresh new look at the beer. The conclusion was to make our IPA all about the hops with no distractions from anything else. With that in mind we paired down the malt bill to highlight the hops; removed the biscuit and added Carapils to enhance the head on the beer with nominal flavor impact. The base hops of Bravo, Amarillo, Cascade, Northern Brewer, and Centennial are the same but the dry hop of Zeus, Northern Brewer, Cascade, and Centennial have be increased by a 100%. On top of his they are let to reside for a longer time at warm temperatures for more impact. The depth of the hop flavor is built on the use of leaf and pellet hops. Couple this with our new state of the art JVNW brew system that creates a more refined, dynamic beer. It is the Apocalypse that everybody knows... but better. ABV-6.8% IBU's 70
