Hollister Brewing in Goleta….

…just a few minutes drive north on the 101.  We tasted each of their 13 drafts…no hippie kicker ipa…but the standout beers were their sour wheat called Tiny Bubbles, and Wet Hop Red…a well balanced fresh hop red ale. P.S. stop #7..for people like Michele who count things.

Ventura’s Surf Brewery…

…is stop #4.  Having a flight of 10 +1.  A brewery and homebrew mart…there is a lot going on here…and only 4-months old.  At that age it should be just now crawling…and these guys are off at a full sprint.

Eagle Rock Brewery….

…is stop #2 on our Santa Barbara beer adventure. Tasted Manifesto, Solidarity, Unity and barrel aged Equinox.  The Equinox aged in a wine barrel is spectacular.

La Jolla Brewhouse Happy Hour

The Brewhouse has a new brewer…and lucky us. Samiun Harvest Pumpkin Ale, at 6.5%abv, and Big Black Stout, at 7% abv, are very good for this homebrewer first few batches here. New Brewmaster, Brian, has been at a couple months now, but off to a great start.  We will definitely be back.

Telegraph Brewing Reserve Wheat Ale

Very refreshing…light body, mild tartness, clean finish.  Label says brewed with the addition of lemon verbena, lactobacillus and brettanomyces…yummy. Maybe even more so after a 20+ mile bike ride around Mission Bay…a flat tire made me walk the last mile or so…sad story but with a happy ending.  Yay Beer!

Summer Saison at Green Flash

Very refreshing after a 30-mile bike ride…and at only 4.3%abv we can enjoy many.  GF is a good place to park and ride back to…cuz they have adult refreshments on premises and currently open until 6pm on Sunday….yay!

Indra Kunindra

Ballast Point collaboration beer, with Holiday Wine Cellar and home brewer Alex Tweet, labeled as India-Style Export Stout.  With curry spice, coconut, kaffir lime leaf, cayenne and cumin.  Different but somehow similar…yummy.

New Belgium Clutch

…at a very quiet Downtown Johnny Browns.  They are all out looking for falling satellite debris.  Beer is dark, but not sour.  Board lists it as a dark sour.  Also available is Deliverance, AdLib and Brandy Angel’s Share from Lost Abbey…you don’t see that too often.
