Cheers to my dad's first Pliny The Elder. I was so glad to share this experience with the people that matter most. It was a day that I wouldn't mind repeating over and over again. Love you pops!
Enjoying a Happy Hops with my brother, Blake Martin, at Russian River Brewing Company in Santa Rosa, California. He is actually enjoying his first Pliny The Elder - what a moment for any young Craft Beer enthusiast. Cheers!
Once again, more beer!!!
My flight at Russian River Brewing Company was amazing. 19 excellent beers is enough for me to make another pilgrimage to the Mecca of Craft Beer. Cheers to a wonderful weekend up in Sonoma County, California.
I knew my dad would love the Maximus IPA from Lagunitas Brewing Company. Too bad my brother couldn't join us on this one. Petaluma truly brought us some treats!
My flight at Lagunitas Brewing Company! Undercover Investigation Shut-Down Ale, Nelson IPA, San Francisco Fusion, and Bret's Brett WTF. I seriously loved the sour (Bret's Brett). I highly recommend it to all.
Using proper glassware for your craft beer is one of the most important aspects of drinking the beer and enjoying it. Like wine, beer also needs to breathe. Pouring your beer in a glass allows the excess carbonation the escape the brew, while giving you a nice full head to look at. The head doesn’t only look pretty, it is also an indication that the excess CO2 will not expand in your stomach, which is the main reason why people may feel “full” after consumption.
Yes, there are times in which we don’t have access to a nice glass, but there are many different alternatives one may use to simulate this experience. The alternatives are countless – plastic cups, solo cups, Styrofoam cups, etc. Anything you can pour your brew into will allow you to truly enjoy your beer without any repercussions.
Please forward this information to your friends who still insist that craft beer isn’t for them because of the “filling” aspect. It’s not the beer itself; it’s the foamy CO2 carbonation.
