    other than that, good find.
    Good catches. I will let them know to clean it up.

    Rugbrod is good ****. It was meant to replace the Black Orchard as a year round brew, but recently they decided to keep it as the winter seasonal. Very malty with some nice bitterness to it, compliments of the rye.

    Bruery Cuir

    I shared this among 3 other friends. I wasn't a big fan of this beer. Just not my style. A little too sweet for me. Big on raisins and prunes. Not much alcohol burn considering it's 14.5%. Very drinkable. I'm glad I got to experience it...but I won't be going back. Anyone want to buy/trade for my other bottle? I need to make room in the cellar.

    Finally, I won't have to drive to T. Phillips or the Back Abbey to find the good stuff.

    The Congregation Ale House is opening up a location in Azusa (and Pasadena).

    Ok, now you don't have to drive, but I do. The Back Abbey is walking distance, but the menu is different enought to make me want to drive down to Long Beach tomorrow. I need to be in Seal Beach by 6 anyway, so I guess I'll just head out early.

    color me wrong, but Congregation seems to be expanding too fast. and can't Pasadena have enough pubs? Lucky Baldwin's, FTW.
    I BELIEVE I'll have another beer!

    Obscura, which is their brown ale is disappointing. The nose is mildly malty sweet and the dark brown color had me anticipating a damn fine beer however halfway through each sip the beer takes a weird turn into some sort of metallic, off taste that makes me wonder if I have an old bottle. I really really wanted to like this one but it's been a disappointment, especially since I've been hoping to find a nice dark, malty Mexican beer. I'll buy another bottle of this when I get the chance just to see if this one is just a bad bottle.

    Not sure if they have any of their beers on tap around here ( i dont see why not since we are really close to their brewery) but i would like to taste both of them to see if they are any better. If you or anyone else knows where they might have them give me a heads up.

    Congregation ale house looks nice! and their prices seem really good as well. Any idea when their new locations wlll open?

    Just had the latest Port Anniversary Ale, the 5th I believe it is. Among the most bitter I have ever had, and reminded me of why I used to love Stone so much. Stone used to be the San Diego style hop innovators. Anymore, not so much and they just wreck themselves with too much experimental **** and collaborations. Port 5th really pushes the extremity of hops which can be right up my alley if the malt is in balance too - which it was! 10% ABV, great Malt to Hop ratio, and excellent on the carbonation. I was hoping Firestone's Double Jack would have been something like this.

    I can still taste the dryness from the hop explosion in my mouth this morning. Gotta hand it to Port for not venturing out too far from the given styles and still making them interesting, and by the dozen.

    Living in The Cuc rules - 5 minutes away from Total Wine. Working in San Dimas rules - 2 minutes away from Lone Hill Liquor.

    Now if you would only deliver to Claremont as you travel back and forth to work.
