Food GPS Teaser – Craft Beer North of Here

Tomorrow, as threatened in an earlier post, (Boy am I time traveling) I will discuss some of the NorCal breweries with big reputations and which ones exceeded my expectations and which were let downs. Not big let downs, but lesser than stellar. I re-read the post and thought it might be too much of a bummer for the end of the year, though still informative, so here are a pair of threes

my 3 favorite beers from the trip

Mikkeller Limoncello Tart IPA

Firestone Walker Bretta Weisse

Russian River Aud Blonde

3 new breweries to watch for from Nor Cal

Headlands Brewing in the North Bay

St. Florians Brewery in Windsor

Cali-Craft Brewing in Walnut Creek

and one last great place for beer up North, Belly – Left Coast Kitchen & Taproom
