9th LA IPA Fest

In a little over a week, the 9th edition of the Los Angeles IPA Festival will be held at Brennans in Marina del Rey on the 11th. You will quickly see how IPA is still the giant in the beer style world.

Check HERE for the details.

Arts District Lodge

Arts District spot in massive Aliso complex that had a Mumford sign for a hot minute might instead get Arrow Lodge Brewing. I say might because too many times, I have seen a liquor application sign posted and nothing happening.

So file this under, hopeful waiting because having Arrow Lodge closer than Covina would be good.  Though it is a tough call as to what is worse finding parking in the Arts District or driving the parking lot that is the 210 freeway.

Central Coast 2021 – Day 1

Fortuitously, Brandon from San Diego Beer News wrote a nice guide to Paso Robles and Atascadero breweries, check it HERE, just before my trip with Mom.

So now I am in the Central Coast drinking beer like a beer traveler!

First visit to Firestone’s main campus in two years and I got to try a flight of anniversary beers. 24 was my favorite.

First visit to Kilokilo Brewing just down the road from FW. Just had time for one beer, the award winning Milk Shaka POG IPA, it was heavy on the lactose and quite sweet. Bought a mixed four-pack of pale ale and IPA for further tasting.
