…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.
A great day for a ride on the coast, from Solana Beach to Oceanside and back. I chose the Table Tops Belgian pale ale and the lady enjoyed the Pave Paradise an old English brown porter.
The White Labs hosted event was packed, even after a long day of….tasting. I chose to taste Lucky U IPA and Avalanche, both from Breckenridge Brewing, from the draft list. Mmmm In need of some rest before we start again tomorrow…… cheers.
One of those days where it needed to be mo betta. So she took her Mo Betta (Bretta) right out of the bottle. ahh….all betta.
…it’s just not Christmas yet, and neither of us are Catholic. Walking the dark and desolate streets of Pasadena late on a Sunday night, the warm and welcoming lights of the Congregation Ale House guide us as we stumble toward our hotel. Only a few blocks south of Lucky Baldwin’s Pub, it was hard to […]
A couple blocks from Haven, and in the same direction we must walk to get to our hotel, was our 6th stop for the day. Lucky Baldwin’s Pub had an great selection of draft beers and an extensive bottle list. We chose three sour beers from Pasadena craft brewery, Craftsman Brewing Co. The beers, Sourdough, […]
As we get older, a single day of birthday celebration is just not enough. A week may be just about right…assuming you can maintain the proper blood alcohol content throughout.

This beer was original availble only to the “Saint’s”, The Lost Abbey’s now defunct annual beer club of sorts. If you were not a saint, or a good friend of a saint, you may have been lucky enough to taste one of the vintage bottles that the brewery made available to the public a few […]
Seems like the tap version of the beer went pretty quick. Found a bottle version while out and about on a Friday evening. I liked the Enjoy By more than the baby Sculpin I had in the shower this afternoon…..and I really like Sculpin. Rabbit Gumbo was pretty good too.
Dogfish Head Punkin Ale for the lady, while I grabbed a baby Sculpin from Ballast Point.
