Farmhouse Slang Batch 004

Funky brett nose with notes of citrus fruit.  Flavor is light body with nice hop flavors, pleasent bitterness and slightly tart. Finish is crisp and clean.  Quite enjoyable. It held up very well for 2018.



A 5.5% ABV dry-hopped saison with peaches from Whiner Beer Co. Quite nice. Light-bodied, Belgian yeast-like esters with citrus notes and a dry finish.

Funkwerks Saison

What a beauty! My selection before it won a gold metal at GABF!


Beer Detour

We were 90% through an afternoon bike ride and made a detour to California Kabob for beer.  I grabbed a Stone Enjoy by 9-21 IPA, while the lady had a Biere D’Hougoumont from Brewery Ommegang.  Both went well with lamb tacos, 2 for $5 Taco Tuesday…mmmm.

LOVE BUZZ Saison with Brett

A delightful surprise from Anchorage Brewing on this warm sunny San Diego day in November… This Saison was brewed with rose hips, pepper corns, and orange peels, dry hopped with Citra, aged in French Oak Pinot Noir barrels with Brett, and bottle conditioned. Whew, and well worth all the effort! One of the most interesting […]
