    Heading down to the San Diego area this weekend to finish off the last micro brewpubs that I haven't been to. Alpine Brewing, Ballast Point and maybe Oceanside Aleworks. Will make the mandatory Stone visit of course.

    Dogfish Head Midas touch



    I was watching Modern Marvels last week and decided to give this beer a try.

    His golden touch may have conferred fabulous wealth on King Midas, but he nearly starved to death when even his food and drink were converted into the precious metal. The well-known legend is based on an actual ruler of the ancient kingdom of Phrygia in central Turkey around 700 B.C. Under a huge mound at the capital of Gordion, a University of Pennsylvania Museum expedition in 1957 excavated an intact burial chamber which likely belonged to King Midas himself. The body of a 60-year-old male was laid out in state on a thick pile of purple and blue-dyed textiles inside a unique log coffin.

    Most remarkably, the tomb held the largest Iron Age drinking set ever found--157 vessels, including a ram-headed and lion-headed situla--for preparing, serving, drinking and libating a special beverage at the funerary feast of the king. The secrets of the beverage were revealed by the new methods of Molecular Archaeology. Dr. Patrick McGovern of the Museum discovered that the residues inside the vessels belonged to a "Phrygian cocktail," which combined grape wine, barley beer and honey mead. Starting with the ancient chemical evidence, Dogfish Head Brewery "re-created" a marvelous golden elixir, truly touched by King Midas.
    In layman's' terms they found a tomb they think belongs to King Midas and tested the residue found on some urns, determined it was beer and ran more tests to figure out the ingredients and brewed the beer.

    This beer is very different from any other beer I have had. It is pretty sweet because of the honey. There is no yeast or hops in the beer. If you can appreciate a very good different beer, you'll dig it. If you need a really hoppy beer, you should pass.

    It also runs about $15 for 4 of them.

    It's 9.0% abv with only 20 ibu

    Don't know if anyone else has posted this one (even if it has been posted it more then deserves another mention). "Lost Coast Great White Ale" (or just "Great White" as most people call it), is massivlely delicious and i highly recommend everyone try it. It's brewed in Eureka, Ca.

    Köstritzer Schwarzbier


    This was my first foray into German "Black Beer" territory. This is dark beer with a blond soul - it looks like a bock or stout, but is actually a lager. Not a heavy beer at all, it is an easy drinking brew, perfect for summer. It does have the sweet taste of chocolate and coffee that lingers after you take a drink, which is reminiscent of a dark beer, but it just doesn't have the same weight and body.

    Overall, very nice. Available at your local Bev-Mo.

    Speaking of dark colored German beers, Weltenburger's "Kloster Asam-Bock" is an outstanding doppelbock which can be found at Hollingshead in Orange. Highly recommended.

    Picked up a 6er myself. Glad you liked it.

    Just tried Mad River's John Barleycorn BarleyWine. Great tasting Barley Wine that came in a 6 pack. Cypress Bev Mo marked it down to $9.99 for the 6 pack. Put it up with Lagunitas Gnarlywine as one if my favorite Barley Wines.

    Samael's Ale from Avery's is unbelievably good. We had it during a tasting on Saturday night and it was by far the highlight. 14.90 % ABV so split it between a few buds !

    I've been waiting for this place to open. New pub opens on Monday in Claremont.

    Belgian-style pub to open in Claremont - DailyBulletin.com


    A Belgian-style pub featuring nearly 30 imported beers on tap is set to open Monday in the Village Expansion.
    The Back Abbey, housed in a tiny Spanish-style building beside the Laemmle Theatre on Oberlin Avenue, will feature an additional 50-60 imported beers in bottles, a rich wine list and a unique food menu of burgers, sausages, salads and other items, said owner John J. Solana.
    Wasn't thinking of anything specific
    Like in a dream, when someone wakes up and screams
    Nothing too very scientific
    Just thinking of a series of dreams
