Going to a a couple breweries (stone, ballast point, green flash, alesmith) and tasting this weekend. Bringing Bruery Cuir and Bruery Batch 300.
Will report back.
Had some really good beer at the Telegraph Brewing Company in Santa Barbara.
I had the California Ale, Stock Porter, and the White Ale.
Check it out.
I have seen it sold at Whole Foods if you want to give it a go.
Telegraph Brewing Company
Oh man. Someone pinch me. A recently opened high end beer/wine shop in Downtown by the Arts District. Went by it a couple nights ago with moderate expectations. Found some beers I haven't been able to find almost anywhere. Fer godssakes look at their beer list
Buzz wine beer store2
A large wine selection. Picked up a 2008 AU Hales fruit bomb at first.
People dressed in odd gray jumpsuits with BUZZ badges on them offering customers help.
The kicker? THEY DELIVER!! $2.95 to anywhere in Downtown- Go crazy Downtowners! I just ordered the following today--
2 bottles of Hales, AU
2 bottles Man O' War Waiheke Island Sauv Blanc
2 bottles of Duchesse De Bourgogne (sour beer)
6 pack of Maui Big Swell IPA
Not all beer I know but had to put this somewhere. $2.95 fee +tip right to my door. Yay Downtown!!
thanks for that site, but wow. can't they get the source of beers correct? I mean, most of the Stone's beers are from either Escondido or San Diego.
and KRBCfrom San Leandro? WTF is that? no where close to Kernville.
other than that, good find.
Bruery Rugbrod. I think this may be my first rye ale. I wasn't sure I would like it but I've been pretty impressed by it. Dark and fairly malty (honestly by aroma alone I would have pegged this as a stout, perhaps even Alagash Black) with a mild/medium spiciness. Actually, I'm quaffing this down.
