Craft Beer Library

Welcome to the Library! What you see is what you get. Nothing fancy, just a chronicle of all things beer.

I’ve been slacking in the beer game lately. Came down with a bad cold that just won’t go away. Boo.

Chasin Freshies…we love it when it dumps fresh mosaic hops.

brew-life said: Idk when you posted about the Lagunitas Lucky 13, but it was brewed over a year ago, so that may explain the blandness. Truly a great beer when you can really taste the hops.

Yeah it’s been awhile since I’ve had that one. But I do remember it tasting only of alcohol. I’ll have to try another if they ever brew it again.

Tonight’s pick. Courtesy of some really great friends.
Shock Top stepping their ad game way up, with TVs and everything. As if people are gonna stop and watch it.

Beer, Hope, Love 09.12.2014

Took a drive down to the south bay last night for some fine Belgium ales at Monkish Brewery.

20311 S Western Ave, Torrance, CA 90501

Dope.

Holy hell! That is an amazing hop aroma! It totally reminds me of when you add hops in the boil. Truly masterful how they got so much hop flavor in this.

I decided this would be my pregame for the Oktoberfest today, I’m afraid my pallet will be destroyed after this though.

Between this and Narwhal; Sierra Nevada has some deliciously beastly seasonal beers. Nice choice!

Okay! So, there has been so much going on at the brewery over the past few weeks, it’s taken forever to catch up on everything! We had a crane company come at 6 in the morning last Friday to put HVAC units and other equipment on the roof. Tony has worked on building the front of the bar on the second floor. HVAC is being installed all over the place inside. It’s amazing how many people are in the building every day working on so many projects! I didn’t even get a chance to put the new staircase pictures in this post. I’ll be posting the pictures for the staircase once I can get pictures of the second back staircase going up. Also, we’ll be finally putting a “Coming Soon” banner over the entrance to the brewery so anyone walking by knows what’s going in the building. We’ve been planning and coming up with ideas of what kind of lighting will be installed, and picking out stain for the downstairs brewery-side bar as well as picking out tile for the bathroom floors. It’s coming together beautifully! We cannot wait to see the finished product!
