Some new. Some classic. They all hit well at the moment. Pretty much mostly kinda available, if you live in California or have a California Mule.
The Hop Concept [San Marcos, CA]:
Jolly & Joyfull IPA.
Dude, with that can I’m thinking “Spruce Tips. Here come the Spruce Tips!” But this is not that beer. It’s just a good clean IPA.
Pizza Port Brewing [The San Diegos]:
Bacon & Eggs – Coffee Porter
It’s a classic and great for this time of year. A wonderful Palette Cleanser Beer for an IPA fan like me. I don’t finish it in one sitting but keep it in the fridge for a couple days to break up the IPAs and reset myself.
Modern Times Brewing [So Cal & Portland]:
Danger Dolphin – Pilsner
A little spicy way to begin your drinking or slow your pace. Citra hops in a Pilsner setup. The can color is brilliant.
Zack’s Brewing [Fresno, CA]:
Air Hugs & Finger Guns – IPA.
This beer is better than it was earlier in the year. A fine-tuned Simcoe & Mosaic based IPA, waiting to be enjoyed now.
Liquid Gravity [San Luis Obispo, CA]:
IPA – WCIPA
What a modern dry West Coast IPA should be. Not too much of anything, just enough of everything.
I enjoyed the hell out of all these beers the past couple weeks. Hope you can find one so you can too.
For those that like alternative beer-merch, Modern Times Brewing has a $20 pack of artful playing cards for you.
Fridge Check As beer drinkers, we like to show off our beer fridges. I used to do a Fridge Friday on Twitter and Instagram. I’d post pics of my beer fridge. But my fridge has been too lame to show off.
