Molly and I are blogging to you live from Backstreet Brewery in Vista, Calif. — our neighborhood brew pub (where we are also upstanding members of the Mug Club). Molly’s a happy girl today. Unlike Brewer Dave has a number of fresh beers on tap this week. I’m always up for the house’s Playmaker IPA when it’s only the afternoon (have to pace myself), but I’ll probably nip at the much stronger HopFather IPA before we wander home for dinner. Molly on the other hand has her stein filled with Austmarr Porter. I’m not familiar with the beer, but Molly seems to really be enjoying it.
The last time we were here and the selection was extremely limited, I’m sure she’ll tell you all about it in a moment. I can see her sipping and tapping away at her laptop right now. In the meantime, here’s a shot of Backstreet’s brewing area. If you click on the image and look at the upper right, you’ll see Brewer Dave shoveling some hops (not a technical term) for a new beer he’s working on.
