2nd Visit – All Season Brewing

I have swung by All Season Brewing a couple of times since they opened but I finally went inside for the first time!

Chicas Tacos has a cool set-up. Nice wide open space.  Skee Ball though, what is it good for? The big cut-outs of brewer Erick Garcia which are fun to see and the tank farm behind the bar is cool as well.

I also like the green and wood accented bar.  They could probably lean more into the car theme with decorations as they do with the beer names. Though they did have a car repair show on TV.

Interesting to see which beers have kicked.  Is it due to small amounts or it was popular on Friday.  English Pale Ale, hazy pale, hazy IPA and an amber lager.

Cold Start – CIPA – yellow/orange in color.  Crisp and piney.  A bit 1D to me. But it does hit the CIPA mark.

Bullitt – had once before the awards started rolling in. Big piney bitterness.  Touch of citrus sweet as well. Has an old-school feel to it.

FoodGPS Teaser – Bludso’s

Tomorrow, I talk BBQ and the new Bludso’s on La Brea in my weekly FoodGPS post.

For today, here are some bottled selections that will go great with BBQ.

Full Sail Brown Ale – “The combination of 2 row pale, crystal and chocolate malts impart an array of malt and chocolate flavors in a medium bodied ale with an extremely smooth palate. Fuggle and Mt.Hood hops contribute a slightly spicy aroma and finish to complement this beer’s malt character.”

Anchor Bock Beer – “The dark satiny texture of Anchor Bock®, with its rich hints of chocolate, caramel and roasted barley, is our interpretation of the strong German beers that signal the coming of spring.”

or you could go with one or both of these XPA’s Holy Jim Falls from Cismontane (which was on tap at Bludso’s) or the Revolution XPA from Eagle Rock.

My final suggestion is…..
Trumer Pils – ” Trumer Pils’ aromatic nose, vigorous carbonation, and dry finish will satisfy the most demanding palate.”
