San Diego Beer Week wouldn’t be complete without a stop at Green Flash and Ballast Point. Fun offerings available at both places. At GF we tasted Candela, 8th Anny, Flanders Dr, Treasure Chest, Serrano Double Stout, and Fest. All great! Nice to see something other than their infamous hop bombs! At BP we tasted Sculpin […]
A very smooth Bourbon Barrel-aged Imperial Stout! Nice to have friends that share! Cheers!
Trying (from R to L) Rayon Vert, a Belgian-style pale ale, Winter’s Folly, a winter warmer, and I Plead the Fifth, a black IPA.

There cannot be many full bottle of Surf’s Up Symposium IPA floating around. Brewed by Green Flash Brewing of Vista, CA for the World Beer Cup last April, the only people who got it were attendees of the Craft Brewer’s Conference. Adam’s a lucky guy to be drinking this hop bomb of an IPA.
