I truly love great beer in a can. This may not be great, but I enjoyed it. Resin is brewed by Six Points Craft Ales. The wonderful resin hop smell upon opening quickly disapated once poured into a glass. I expected something different based on the nose, and was pleasantly surprised to taste a beer […]
…it’s a Celebration. Fresh hop Sierra Nevada style.
I guess it’s not really morning, maybe it just feels that way do to the clouds and rainy weather, and the fact that I just got up. Perfect time to BBQ, and you legally cannot BBQ without a beer. (Not sure if that is a State or County law, but I’m pretty sure it’s a […]
Enjoying a Merry Christmas Happy New Year 2012 from Anchor Brewing in my new beer goblet. Strong roasted malt flavors with notes of holiday spices.

Sipping an Enjoy By 12.21.12 double IPA from Stone, whilst washing dishes. Yep, it’s like a party…. Palmolive and beer.
After hang’n with the mayor, we made our way to Downtown Johnny Browns for Barrel Night and found a very nice selection of potent and tasty beers! Our 3rd stop, and 2nd brew pub, was Monkey Paw. After a tasty flight of 6 of their own brews, I chose a big boy glass of their […]
…with a big boy glass of Fresh Hop Pale Ale from Great Divide. Yeah, this will do nicely. I’m definitely getting more of a grassy nose and flavor compared to the draft version on tap at the brewery the week of GABF.
