Wish I Could Get It – Czech Mates

It seems like every day that I see a beer that I wish that I could get, but realistic me knows that it ain’t gonna happen. Another part of me also knows that having these just out of reach beers is a good thing. It will eventually push me out to travel to find.

This month, I would need to travel to the Land of KC3 aka England to Thornbridge Brewery for this collaboration with Budvar…

Just a Stout

A lot of craft beer fans are itching to have the behemoth 2023 version of Sierra Nevada’s Hoptimum but for those looking for a more retro track….how about…

Stout, just stout. A non-bruising 5.8% stout that will be in a can this year!


The Bruery is now at the 15 year mark and that means a special barrel-aged beer of course.

“Le quinzième anniversaire of The Bruery brings another celebratory ale true to tradition. We bring you Cristal: the 15th edition of our annual Anniversary ale, meaning it has 15 years of Bruery history blended right in— and you’ll want to savor every drop.”


Surprisingly Angel City Brewery is the first to name their Mexican lager after one of the most famous and historical spots in Los Angeles, Olvera Street.

The really evocative art is by Elisa Torres Art as curated by ArtShare LA.

A Good Drip

The Three Weavers group has a new but different collaboration out with Tarantula Hill Brewing under the name: Code Name. The Inglewood version is Juicy Drips. Word to come on what Tarantula Hill will call theirs.

Each juicy pale ale “was made with the same hop combo, Galaxy, Mosaic and Cryo Pop.” Will we be able to tell the difference?

Eyes Up

If you want a West Coast IPA, brewed right here in L.A., most beer fans would turn to either El Segundo Brewing or Beachwood Brewing.

Well a new collaboration makes the choice even quicker. Eyes to the Sky IPA hopped with Strata, Simcoe, and Columbus, is now available at Beachwood locations.
