Rifftrax + Wil Wheaton + Stone Bistro =

…a full and fun evening. On July 23rd, Stone Bistro in Escondido will be having a pumped up version of movie night. As if you need an excuse to go to this great beer oasis. Anyhoo, starting around 6pm. Wil Wheaton will read from his books, then Rifftrax takes on The Matrix. Snorting of beer due to laughter will be on the menu.

HUB – new July release

I know I can’t stop pimpin’ Hopworks. It is a disease. They make great stuff like this…..

Evelyn’s Imperial Sunshine is a big and beautiful double IPA with intense resinous floral and grapefruit hop aroma. This bright, golden beer has subtle malt flavor with just enough sweetness to compliment a powerfully crisp, bitter finish. Brewed in celebration of the birth of Evelyn Sunshine Ettinger one year ago this July 1st, it’s a rambunctious and refreshing beer.

Widmer Brothers + charity

from Draft Magazine.

Expressions of brotherly love usually involve punching, wrestling, or some kind of potentially dangerous physical activity. Widmer Brothers Brewing Company is celebrating Brother’s Day (Tuesday, August 11) in a slightly more healthy way.

Their collection of sarcastic e-cards are a great way of conveying brotherly affection while helping a good cause. One dollar will be donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters for each card sent before August 11. Widmer Brothers has pledged to raise $10,000 in an effort to recruit more volunteer Big Brothers.

“Our effort to support Big Brothers Big Sisters is a personal commitment,” Kurt Widmer said. “We know firsthand the value of strong role models and of course, the importance of brotherhood.”

So before that friendly sibling boxing match results in a pleasant trip to the emergency room, send your bro an e-card. And help give community kids an opportunity to experience the joy that can only come from getting matching casts with their brother.

Abita Satsuma Wit

Somedays, it feels like I can’t stay caught up…

“Real Louisiana Satsumas, golden wheat, oats and the finest barley create Abita Satsuma Harvest Wit. Pale and cloudy, like the haze on a hot summer day, this white beer has a sweet and subtle citrus flavor with a touch of spice that is cool and refreshing.

Abita Satsuma Harvest Wit is very versatile and can compliment a number of dishes. This brew pairs well with salads, fish, shrimp and lobster, as long as the dishes are not too spicy. Thai dishes, which often have citric notes in their flavor profile, would also perfectly compliment the orange flavors in Abita Satsuma Harvest Wit.”
