Craft Beer Library

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

Obligatory all-around San Diego photo; Stone IPA and a mess of tacos. Unf, I love being home.

Yonder Bock (Tropical Maibock) - Sierra Nevada & Cigar City. 

I really liked this one. Hints of mango and passion fruit. Smooth malt taste. Nice little hop bitterness in the finish.

I heard from many that this was the best of the bunch.

Guess what my wife found for me… Dogfish Head 90min IPA.
Alright. So we made the first leg of our journey through California at a lazy, un-rushed pace. Left the foggy and drizzly Bay Area this morning about 10am and we just pulled into our first stop for the night, The Padre Hotel in Bakersfield. Turns out it’s only warmed up during our trip so far by about 45 degrees. It’s currently 107 outside here. AND since I knew that Bakersfield is really not a craft beer Mecca, I brought along a few beers to tide me over until we do reach the holy land. Here’s to swank hotels with a/c, desert heat and soon to be room service. Cheers everyone!

Good reference point.

Haven’t decided yet. With soooo many to choose from and a family-in-tow; we’re more than likely going to play it by ear. BNS is literally a mile from the rents’ so that one is a given. Other than that I’m kinda excited about the prospect of just stumbling upon something wherever we are at the time. I really, really want to make it to Societe if at all possible, but they are kinda outta the way from where we’ll be spending most of our time. We shall see! Thanks for the question! I’ll definitely be posting about wherever we end up.

Ballast Point doing things right during Comic-Con.
I’m coming tomorrow!

I’m coming tomorrow!

London pubs that didn’t have lots of casks tended to have lots of nitro taps to make up for it.

Nice!

Boulevard Brewing Company Ginger-Lemon Radler, 12 oz., 4.05% ABV, 12 IBUs. An important part of my summer-preparedness kit.*
*Kit may not actually exist, unless you want to count the all the beer in the fridge. And my air conditioner. Definitely the air conditioner. And the beer.
