While that sentence alone should ban me from any and all proper social gatherings, yeast is in fact one of the most amazing little creatures in the world.

Weekly Watering Hole: Red Robin Escondido

I need to start this post with a disclaimer: do not under any circumstance stop going to your local bars and brewpubs because of this place. Red Robin is a chain restaurant that only cares about extracting as much money from you as possible. They could not care less about a great beer selection or…

A Response to “18 Overrated Beers”

Will Gordon, writer for The Concourse, recently posted an article called “18 Overrated Beers”. While I will agree that many beers get too much hype for too little quality, I thought I would take a shot at a few of his choices. Take a look at his full list here and then read on. Miller High…

Kona Brewing Company Longboard Lager

Did you know it rained in San Diego over the weekend? It was amazing! Finally we had reduced humidity, free car washes and a little but of thunder and lightning. It really felt like summer was coming to a close which inspired me to grab a few final summer beers to enjoy while I waited…
