Sierra Nevada Barrel Aged Trippel

…at Toronado.   At first taste it reminded me of the remnants of a whiskey cocktail after the ice has melted and watered it down.  Next fews sips were much better…flavors better as it warmed.


Damnation at Live Wire

Yep…another full pint being poured where…in most beer bars..this would be a 10oz pour…or something just as minimal.


$8 Pint of Bourbon Angels Share

Another place you would not expect it… The High Dive…yep..just pulling stuff from our backsides.  Dropped in minutes before closing..and drank it waaaay too fast…jeez.


Two Big Boy Beers at the Waterfront

Really…how often are you gonna get full pints of Barrel Aged Victory at Sea or Brandy Barrel Aged Navigator??  Well..I can tell you…not often.  Well, at The Waterfront Ballast Point Tap Takeover…come’n get it.  Can’t y’all here the triangle…ding.ding.ding…

Tiger! Tiger!

We came for the beer and decided on an Alpine W.H. Ale,their wet hop […]


The Real Last Stop…Backstreet Brewing in Vista

Really, how could we just drive by and not stop…just for a couple of tastes. And as tired as we were, we are glad we did. Malane’s Request Coffee Stout, a barrel aged beer called Murder by Death and Dolman’s Dark Star. Looking over and seeing Michele’s nose in Dolman’s Dark Star was reminiscent of the end […]


The Brewhouse…

…our ninth stop on the Santa Barbara beer adventure (for those who are counting), had 13 house brews available, so of course we tried one of each. Orange Crush XXX was interesting, but not necessarily good.  It was like an orange liquor that had ice cubes melt in it.  I think it would have made […]
