I had read that Green Flash Brewing Co. was open all week for tastings and tours for San Diego Beer Week, so I headed over after work.
Grant was nice enough to pour me a few tasters. 30th Street Pale Ale, Gruit (a hopless herb beer), Hop Head Red, West Coast IPA, Palate Wrecker Double IPA, Imperial IPA and Coffee Stout. I was not impressed with the Gruit, but I did have it after the 30th Street. Next time I need to try it before something so hoppy.
On Thursday JSix Restaurant hosted The Lost Abbey Original Art Show. They were displaying the original artwork that is featured on the Lost Abbey labels. You could see up close just how disturbing the Inferno label really is. To make it eaven better, they were pouring samples ( Duck Duck Gooze, Cuvee de Tomme, Angel’s Share, Carnavale…hell..they had a better selection than the brewery had) and they were serving appetizers.
The next stop was the Blind Lady Ale House. I decided on a Green Flash Little Freak and like it; very refreshing. Then off to The Ritual Tavern…again. I thought I took a picture there too…but maybe that was Wednesday.
