i've seen this place mentioned somewhere on LGK (but not sure if in this thread or another). my husband and i went to the goat hill tavern on newport blvd. in costa mesa yesterday.
i got the leffe blonde and he got a hennepin's white ale. his was so so, we've definitely had better whites. but the leffe was excellent. i've had the bottled version in belgium before (also the brune/brown variety), and the draught was noticeably superior.
anyway, i know leffe isn't totally new to everyone here, but anyone who hasn't been to this place should totally go. i used to go all the time when i was going to UCI, but that was more than 5 yrs ago. i also didn't have as much of a taste for beer as i do now and used to get strawberry stolis and 7ups instead. i did actually try my first premium beer there eventually and developed my favorism towards boddington's though. it's a classic dive bar, too, for anyone into that.
i noticed they also had the deschutes black butte on tap amidst 100 others. they even have the various beers separated into a menu of whites, pilsners, blondes, brown ales, etc. for you to choose from.

I picked up a 6'er of the Sierra Nevada Anniversary Ale on Saturday while at Liqourama. Can't wait to try it ! It's an American IPA and should be similar to the Harvest Ale or Celebration Ale.

Picked up some of Anchor's Old Foghorn on Friday night. Pretty good Barley wine. Weak in alcohol content at 8/8%, but very good flavor.

Great trip to BevMo yesterday. Picked up a 6er of Stone Oaked AB which Ididn't even know was out yet. Also picked up Sam Adam Honey Porter 6 pick. Been many years since I've seen them in a 6er.

OAKED ARROGANT BASTARD ALERT!!!!
Probably old news. But I just got back from the BevMo on Sepulveda in the SF Valley and they had several cases of Oaked Bastard in six packs!
You all know what to do.

Enjoyes Stome IPA on tap for the first time last night at Lazy Dog Cafe. Good stuff. Sampled Lazy Dog's own IPA, not impressed. Another good IPA on tap there is Lagunitas.
