In the Tap Lines for August 2022

header_attractions

August is a non travel outside California month so I will take the weekends to play catch-up with L.A. breweries that I haven’t been to in a bit. But if you do travel, maybe layover in NewJersey and show support to their breweries who have been burdened with some truly galling laws.

~ e-visits to (3) breweries from New Jersey who have been handcuffed by anti-beer laws
~ special featured review of pilsners and lagers
~Heads-Up on Los Angeles Beer Events
~ Three suggested beers to buy this month. One light, one medium and one dark
~ A Book & A Beer reads Blacktop Wasteland by S.A. Cosby
~ A Podcast & A Beer listens to A History of Coffee
~ New Beer Releases and Best Beers of the Month
~ I will tap the Firkin and give my no holds barred opinion on the craft beer world.

L.A. Beer Week 2022

Get your calendars (or should I say phones) out to mark off L.A. Beer Week for 2022.

June 18th through the 26th in what is being called “a modified format”. I will keep you apprised of cool events not to miss right up until the end.

The first thing to keep in mind is that the Unity 2022 brew was done recently and the host was Highland Park Brewery. Crossing my fingers that it is a pilsner and not an IPA.

Followers of this blog will know that I have helped back many a Kickstarter project. For beer in far away (to me) Missouri and beer documentaries set in Oregon. Now I (and you) can help out some locals!

So now head over to their Kickstarter page, HERE and donate a little. We need more craft beer in Los Angeles.
