…for me and a Gold Record for the lady. Yumm.
A tasty 7.2% ABV collaboration beer from Figueroa Mountain Brewing and Bird Rock’s Wheat n Water, made in the West-coast style. Made even better at happy hour prices.
A delish and effervescent 11.5% ABV Brut des Flanders from Brewery Bosteels. This triple fermented bottle conditioned Belgian golden strong ale has a sweet fruity nose and a wonderful balanced flavor with somewhat dry finish…very champagne like. Cheers
A 7.2% ABV west-coast style IPA from Pizza Port Solana Beach. I’m told next in line for special release canning.
Finding some treasures as I get toward the bottom of the beer drawer. Our last can of Amplified Ale Works delish 10% ABV hazy IPA.
Firestone Walker’s 5.5% ABV milk stout made with coconut. Quite enjoyable. I get more chocolate and roasted malts with a light, somewhat sweet finish. No noticable coconut.

Quite happy with this 6% ABV West-Coast IPA from Sierra Nevada. Nose is a nice balance of hops and malts. Has nice hop flavors over medium body base with no malty sweetness.

Please do me a favor, if you ever hear the words “Dry January” escape my lips…talk me out of it. Ok…maybe this January hasn’t been totally dry…but definitely more dry than most Januarys. She’s stronger than me. Beer for me, OJ for her. The beer is more unfiltered west coast style with hoppy citrus nose […]
A remake of the east village collaboration IPA between Amplified Ale Works and Melvin Brewing. A tasty west coast style with Citra and Simcoe, and a 7% ABV… what’s not to love.
