I appreciate trying new beers and this was a bucket list type thing for me...unfortunately the line was the criteria for scratching this beer off the list. There is no other sure fire way for the average person to get it.

    BTW, while at Lagunitas we had their 3 year aged port barrel Gnarleywine. Holy cow...that thing was ROBUST!
    That port aqged Gnarleywine is by far my favorite beer ever. Had it when we were up there in June.

    It has been a great beer week for me, and it's not over yet. I went to the 4th annual Inland Empire Beer and Food Truck event in Riverside. This is one beerfest that more than lived up to the hype. The largest brewers there, were Stone, Ballast Point, Hanger 24 and Golden Road, so it was a true craft beer fest. I paid extra for the VIP ticket, which allowed me entrance an hour before the main crowd, plus 5 additional tasters. For $40 entrants were granted 15 taters, for $50.00 you got 20 tasters plus a fenced off area with tables and chairs. The nice thing, was that they really weren't very good about marking off when you had a tater. I had 7 marks on my band, and tried at least 29 different beers. The Bruery had a table set up in the VIP area, so you were also able to have exclusive access to their table. Really impressed by some beers by Donkey Punch Brewing, Claremont Craft Ales and Vinaceous by Hanger 24. The Bruery's White Chocolate was going as fast as they could serve it. More Beer was there at all with a variety of beers that they have brewed at their store in Riverside. They had an incredible Chocolate Cherry Stout.

    The on to Eureka Burger in Claremont, where I had Pliny the Younger. Looking forward to finishing the week off in Seal Beach with more Younger and other good brews at Beachwood BBQ.

    No need to envy me Mr Citra. If you wander down Seal Beach way on Friday or Saturday, I'll be happy to share good beer.

    Had a pint of PtY at Beachwood a couple days ago. Ordered a pint of Blind Pig to go right next to it.

    I'll take a Blind Pig over PtY any day. PtY just has too much malt for me. It lingers a bit too much. That beer is hyped.

    In other news, I visited Russian River and Lagunitas last weekend with the wife. It was my first trip to Lagunitas. I dug that place. The vibe was right. Brought back some goodies from both places.

    I have some fresh Pliny's I brought back for a trade that fell through. Anyone interested? Bottled 8 days ago.

    Can anyone help me understand this?

    **In addition, after a week and 5 beer poured from my new kegerator...my CO2 tank was empty. I took the tank and regulator into Mr. Kegs and the guy found a leak in the gauge on the right. I called the company and they are sending me a new one. Would this have anything to do with it?**
    Absolutely it will. The beer is naturally carbonated as a result of fermentation, and pressure often builds enough within the keg to push the beer out without the aid of a CO2 tank. I'm guessing the 5 beers poured were from the natural carbonation. I homebrew and have a (3)x5 gallon tap keezer and will generally go through 1.5 kegs (7.5 gal.) per month with help from neighbors and friends. A small 5# co2 tank will easily last me about a year or so and that includes force carbonation of the beer. Hope that helps...enjoy the kegerator.
