    I've basically reconciled it in my mind that Mexican beer just won't give me what I want. Negro Modelo was better, but even that left me wanting a lot more. I was in Total Wine in Thousand Oaks and saw a couple Mexican beers that I'd never seen before, both in cans. One was called Chupacabra, IIRC. Next time I'm there I'll pick up one of each and try them out. There may be hope yet.

    I day dream of moving to Mexico and starting up a craft brewery. The names for the beers write themselves.

    Aztec Sacrifice Red Ale
    Atole Chocolate Stout
    Moctezuma’s Revenge Brown Ale
    El Cucuy IPA
    Padre Hidalgo Dubbel
    Cortez Tripel
    Me Llamo El Diablo Quad
    Abuelito Old Ale
    Yo No Saison (my buddy came up with this one)
    El Borracho Strong Ale
    You should try beers from the baja mexican microbrewery Cucapa, they make that chupacabras beer and a few others. Really good stuff!

    I second this. I believe it was a barleywine of theirs that I had....not bad at all!

    Dunno if its the hot weather, but I've really been enjoying Dos Equis and Modelo with Mexican food lately.

    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.

    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.
