I picked up this Deftones/ Belching Beaver Brewery collaboration beer off the warm shelf of the local Trader Joes. It has a wonderful piney and citrus hoppy nose right out of the can. The flavor is ok, but not what I was expecting based on the nose. It’s a pleasent but somewhat mild bitterness, where […]
A hazy IPA from the fine folks at Solana Beach Pizza Port. Decent, but nothing outstanding. Mild bitterness and not much of a nose…or could it be my nasal congestion…hmmm. Maybe this is the best beer I’ve ever had and I just can’t tell.
At approximately 67.5 miles in… a Gold Record for the Lady, and Afternoon Delight for me.
While riding north I notice Saint Archer has a tasting room just south of the Regal Seagull in Leucadia. While heading south we stopped to hydrate. She chose the Creamcicle, and Coffee Cream Porter, where I chose the Hazy NZ IPA and the Galaxy DIPA. Though all good, after 43 miles of pedaling, her Creamcicle […]
About halfway thru today’s bike ride and made a stop to fuel and hydrate. My fav of the 6 tasters was this 7.6% ABV New England-style IPA. The slice with artichoke hearts wasn’t bad either.
10oz pours of the 9% ABV IIPA at Iron Pig today (Saturday) only. I assume price goes back up tomorrow.
A tasty 5.5% ABV New England-style hazy pale ale from Zoobrew in France. Not so hazy, but there was a pile of gunk at the bottom of the bottle after pouring. I get some herbal notes on nose, but not in the flavor. Pale malt body with no residual sweetness and nice hop bitterness. Very […]
As she hands me the can from the fridge, she says, “Dark Star means butthole.” I’m reluctant to search using my phone and risk inappropriate ads popping up at the worst of times…so I check Urban Dictionary. As usual, she is correct. It is also a fine 8% ABV oatmeal stout from the fine folks […]
Some damn good beer at Green Cheek. Pics worth thousands of words. We tried more and not a bad beer in the bunch. A bit far for our Sunday bike ride, but we’ll be back.
I shit you not…there is a brewey named Black Cock. We didn’t know until we got here, but they took over the spot that was Old Orange Brewing in Anaheim. Same place, new owners. Our fav ended up being a blend of the Chocolate Persuasion and Hazel Nut Heffer, with nice hints of coconut. I […]
