Default My Cali haul/Stone tour

In the last week I've experienced too many cool beer things for their own thread so they'll all be shoved in here.

My fiance and I just got back from spring break, we went out to LA and San Diego. While there we toured Stone (AWESOME!!) and hit up a Bev'Mo (freakin Sweet!) I sampled a bunch of amazing beers and have ~10 22ozers being shipped back to me right now.

I'll post pics of my Cali Haul and the Stone tour either tonight or tomorrow (stupid work...)


Oh, and to top it all off I set up an interview for Saturday for a job at a brewpub thats being opend! This is me ---->

Good to hear you had a fun trip.

The Stone Brewery is amazing. So nice to sit on their back patio with the awesome SD weather and enjoy some great brews. I can't wait to get back there again this year.

Ugh sorry guys there's going to be a bit of a delay on the pics. We're having some comp problems at home.

Yeah the gardens were awesome. I wish we had eaten at the bistro but we got the cask of the day (it was wednesday) which was their IPA with simcoe and amarillo hops. It was fantastic. Especially because we had just driven a bunch and just been in the go, go, go mindset. To all of a sudden sit in a nice garden with an amazing beer was totally worth it.

I might not remember them all but...

2 Stone Smoked Porter
1 Stone 2008 Old Guardian
1 Stone RIS
1 Rauchbier
1 Dopplebock
1 Russian River Damnation
1 He'Brew Rye IPA
and a sixer of Alaskan Brewing Co. Amber (only have 1 left!)

1 SNPA pint glass
1 Stone Smoked Porter pint glass
1 Bev'Mo pint glass

I think thats it...I'll post the pics when I can. I spent like two hours in Bev'Mo just oggleing all the goods. I made sure to only get stuff that I won't ever see in Texas....especially Corpus Christi. I forgot the names of the Rauchbier and the Dopplebock but I'll post them later

Stone and BevMo are probably my most favorite places out here. Ed, I urge you to check out Lost Abbey Brewery in Escondido (right near Stone) and Pizza Port in Carlsbad, Solana Beach, etc. Great pizza, but a huge selection of beers brewed right behind the bar, where you can see it all go down thru the glass. Their Wipeout IPA is possibly one of the cleanest, crispest, IPA's around and has won LOTS of gold medals.

That's awesome, can't wait to see some pics! I've got to make my way out to San Diego one of these days. I'm not even that far.
