An 8.7% double IPA for me and Madame Pumpkin Saison for the lady.
Surprizingly good. It has a big sweet malty base I normally not a big fan of in my IPAs but with strong notes of melon and fruits it is quite enjoyable…and may be the perfect breakfast beer. It’s even got the 8.5% ABV going for it. Her Stone Berliner Weisse…not so much. Finish is bone […]
I big malty 9.6% ABV DIPA with a nice hop balance. From Barrelhouse Brewing. Paired well with our Morrow Bay oysters.
After hours in the car I need to stretch my legs and find a bathroom. As usual she found the perfect place just off the 101…a brewery. Trying to stay on schedule we limited ourselves to two each, but really need to spend more time here…all we tried were quite good. R to L we […]
By little I mean 12 fluid ounces. By Puff I mean 9.8% ABV, 108 IBU IPA from Sixpoint Brewery. Per the label an unfiltered and special dry-hopped version of their Resin imperial IPA.

She enjoyed the dessert-like Guava Libre!, a collaboration beer The Bruery and Funky Budda. Think milkshake IPA, minus the hop bitterness, with added vanilla and sweet fruit. They even let it ferment enough to get up to 7.5% ABV. I, on the other hand, got the Consolation Prize. This 9.5% ABV double IPA, from the […]
…F*#k yeah! Wet hop, nice balance, and 7% ABV.
Quite happy with the hazy collaboration beer from Burgeon Beer Co. and Humble Sea Brewing.
Decided to crash a “friends and fam” soft opening occuring today and tomorrow at the newest brewery in town, Creative Creature Brewing Company. IPAs and sours and a stout. We tried # 4, 5, 6, 13 and 14. All decent… They took over the brewery spot where Urbn Pizza and Brewery were, at the corner […]
