Last Saturday…yeah, I’m a little behind in my postings…we stopped at Churchill’s for a pint of Ballast Point’s Victory at Sea; their Imperial Coffee Vanilla Porter. I prefer the keg and cask Victory at Sea over the bottled stuff. I find that the bottled beer retains too much coffee flavor for my liking. No…I’m not […]
When I found myself in La Jolla recently I decided to find a pint and wait out the traffic. And to think that after San Diego Beer Week ended on the 15th I was going to take a beer break…noooo…Rock Bottom Brewery La Jolla on November 17th. The chalkboard tap list indicated they had a […]
After closing up Port it was time to venture south and meet up with a friend. As always, BLAH, had a wonderful tap list including some sours, for a mini-sour fest just for the night. We started with a Super Freak from Green Flash and a Mission Armada double IPA. We talked and sipped and […]
Working tonight from home with a deadline tomorrow at noon. I’m wiped out…and it is only Thursday. I was thinking an IPA would be nice, but didn’t think I had any. Lucky me I found two. A Sculpin and a Wipeout. I chose the Wipeout and don’t regret it a bit.
..in the door of my fridge…so I drank it. And like a magic trick…it was gone.
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 […]
After a long-ass day I stopped at the Ritual Tavern and rewarded myself with an Armada Imperial IPA, a collaboration brew from Mission Brewery and Dean Rouleau of San Diego Brewing Co. A short walk and I was at Toronado…along with everyone else in San Diego. As usual I did not get close to tasting […]
Yeah… I should have taken the pic when the beers were full…but I got distracted. I chased my Pliny with a cask High Tide, and it was good.
San Marcos Blvd backs-up east bound earlier and earlier. It’s a good thing there is Churchill’s between work and home. I decided to start with a New Belgium La Folie. Now if I could only find a place to set my glass so I can take a pic…jeez…standing room only at the bar. Kristin […]
The walk on the beach left me parched and a bit chilled. I stumbled into a defunct laundromat to warm myself by a dryer…only to find out it was no laundromat. It was…and likely still is since I left it only moments ago…a bar! Uncle Duke’s Beach Bar in fact. The bartender, Carl, greeted me […]
