I wasn't really sure what I'd find at the Turlock BevMo. I happened to be over at Panera for a meeting, and decided to stop in to see if anything caught my eye. I ended up getting a bottle of Dust Bowl's The Therapist and Anderson Valley Bourbon Stout. (Which I had for the first time at 10 EAST Kitchen and Taps.)
As I'm not real big into the club scene, I don't know who all is super active these days, but if I were in Turlock, I'd start with these guys: http://centralvalleybrewersguild.com/ I know they had an October Meeting over at Mark Ranes' place.
