Yesterday’s Friday Afternoon Club at Hess Brewing Miramar was very slow compared to previous gatherings. As the beer-tender, Ciro, pointed out people were doing things other than enjoying beer on 4-20, 2018. I was happy with the #83 version of Solis…tasted like an old-school west coast IPA.
An abundance of sweet orange zest on the nose. A pleasent mild bitterness at first. Maybe because of the sweet nose, but I’m getting more an unpleasant grapefruit peel bitterness that lingers a bit longer on the finish. I had no problem finishing the bottle, but likely wouldn’t buy again.
She chose the special version of coffee Grazias and I got the Ficus fig saison. 33 miles into the ride and almost home.
Hate to drink and run… but we got places to go.
We were able to grah a couple beers before they stopped serving at 8.
Greatly enjoying this “baby” growler full of yummy, roasty, 7.5% coffee porter from Hess Brewing! Hess brews some of the best coffee beer ever using roasted coffee beans from The Coffee and Tea Collective… I hope I can sleep tonight after all the caffeine!
Stopped by Hess at closing time, and was happy to see that the place was still happening! Many beers to choose from, so we enjoyed a few tasters while chatting with Michael and other fun patrons… My fav was Brunus Inderesco (coffee porter).
A quick stop at Bottlecraft to enjoy the Hess sampler and to grab a bottle of 4 Calling Birds… Success!!! (Loved the Hess Coffee Porter!)
