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 […]
Enjoying a Witch’s Wit in a paper cup with office friends after hours. Split three ways it wasn’t much and it just made me thirsty for more. Yeah..I know you are jealous about the cool cut-outs stuck to my monitor and speaker in the back ground. And..NO they are not for sale.
I arrived late, but there were still many familiar faces wishing Ken good luck in Denver. The allotted 30 cases for sale were gone by the time I arrived at 7:20pm…they didn’t last long. I was able to get one on draft ($6 for a tiny pint) before the keg blew. Next one was […]
In preparation for the Jack Daniel’s Dinner last night at Churchills Pub & Grille, Ivan had Jack Daniel’s barrels filled with beer at Port Brewing/ Lost Abbey. The barrel aged Serpent’s Stout was fantastic. Get it while you can…I doubt it will last long.
Decided on a Pure Hoppiness from Alpine Beer Company before heading out this evening. Very nice. Looking forward to Ballast Point Sculpin IPA on cask at Churchills tomorrow..yum..thanks for the tweet @churchills
I’m sure many of you felt the loss at 3:34pm today, Thursday 10 Sept 09. He was only 3 years – 4 months old. It was a short existence, but loved by many. I recall people cheering at his arrival, or entrance into a room or gathering. Of course I am speaking of…(sniff….sniff)…my growler. […]
