A work associate, well acquainted my affliction for good craft beer, surprised me with a growler from something just outside my radar. Humble Farmer Brewing Company, in Holtville, just outside of El Centro, is brewing up fresh suds. Word has it they are willing to share, for a small fee, to whoever stops by and also meets the state age requirements.
1st Cut IPA was more So Cal old school, with piney and resinous hops over a malty base, with very little overlying sweetness.
Their website is in need of attention….but until then, based on the single beer I’ve tried, I’d stop if in the area, but not necessarily make the trip of not on your normal driving circles.
