Craft Beer Library

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

What is this sorcery?

What better way to test your hoppy pilsner than compare it to this bad boy! Both are great beers, beer camp is truly delicious very pilsner skunky hoppy awesomeness. Mine is hoppy and great but that pilsner skunky character isn’t as pronounced as I’d like. Still very happy with my newest brew hoppin pils!

Nice!

Check out this old school sign we found in the @oregonbrewfest tent  from 1993! That’s pretty old for the #craftbeer world. #pdx #oregonbrewersfest #TBT (at Portland Waterfront)

Throwin’ back to 93’. Whoop there it is.

Good Thursday Morning everyone! Make it a great one.

Found a Homebrew hidden in the back of the fridge. Turns out that this little guy got insanely better with age. It was a 60min Motueka Ale. Didn’t taste too great a few months ago. Now I wish I had more…

And thanks for the suggestions in the previous post! I totally forgot about Mission Brewery! I’ve never visited the brewhouse but I have had Shipwrecked before. It was pretty tasty. Haven’t heard of the other two, but I’ll look them up. Keep the “Must Visit” San Diego Brewery suggestions coming!

midlifecrazyman - Excellent suggestions! For me, with the exception of The Lost Abbey and Alesmith, I’ve been to all the heavy hitters and still frequently drink their offerings. Any ideas for something fresh/upcoming to the scene? So far, I’m really looking forward to Societe.

Planning our SD trip. Gonna have a little time here and there to, oh you know, have a beer or three. SO, I’m trying to plan out visiting breweries I’ve not been to before, which is pretty hard cause there is close to 200 different breweries operating in San Diego County. So I’m going to really narrow it down… I’m looking at you Societe, BNS, and Alesmith.

Sierra Nevada’s Beer Camp Across American started in Chico, and it was a blast! Lots of excellent beer, great entertainment, and great food trucks to take my mind off the ruthless sun beating down.

Got off work early to help get things ready for vacation. My duties were, laundry, bed sheets, mowing the grass and bug spray. Check, check, check and check.

There is going to be some barrel work soon too.

Oh man! When we can get our hands on some imperial pumpkin?! That sounds awesome!

I am not totally sure of the schedule, but I think it is available starting around October or November.

I’m more interested in the Sea Legs!

Took a trip up to the roof to reset the glycol system this morning, so I figured I would snap a couple photos. One looking up at the 540 bbl fermenters and one of the sunrise just starting to happen.

Good start to a great day.

What Are the Best Looking Beer Cans in America?

hopshack:

Packaging in cans is becoming very popular due to the advantages in shipping and storage. Our personal favorites come from Terraping Beer Company

I can’t decide between 21st Amendment and Big Sky Brewing Co.  They both make delicious beer in super rad cans…

bakersbrews:

Torpedo Pilsner - Sierra Nevada & Firestone Walker

Wasn’t expecting much from a pilsner, but this one is pretty tasty. Hint of citrus, a little dry and overall and nice, crispy brew.
