Beer at Amusement Parks: Ranked

I have kids. We love amusement parks. And sometimes, there’s alcohol at them. After visiting an Universal Hollywood with the kiddos again a couple weekends ago, being teased about the beer selection at most of those this past weekend when out with my cousin and Disneyland mentioning they’re redoing Ariel’s Grotto (I’ve eaten there. I have a daughter.) into a bar, here’s my loose, informal … Continue reading Beer at Amusement Parks: Ranked

Learning About Hopsy a Little Late

It honestly baffles me that every business idea there could be isn’t already patented with 3 competing businesses. There has to be an on-demand ringer t-shirt print service of celebrity instagram photos from the previous day filtered to make them look like zombies drinking slurpees. Maybe only 2 of those kind of businesses. But why didn’t someone think of Hopsy sooner? I read about it … Continue reading Learning About Hopsy a Little Late

The Beer Fire Spreads Across the Whole Bay Area

Cheesy title, I know. So I’m a little late to this, the writing part and not the reading part, but I came across this list of top breweries in San Francisco. Well, it actually puts itself in a place of best places for craft beer. And it’s not truly just places in San Francisco proper. Also, it doesn’t really say top breweries, it says it’s … Continue reading The Beer Fire Spreads Across the Whole Bay Area

Won’t Somebody Please Think of the Children?

The 21st Amendment opening celebration for their San Leandro location was this past weekend. It’s on the more industrial side of the freeway, where Drake’s and Cleophus Quealy are. It appears to be the largest of them, and every bit of the space around it was crammed in with cars. We were there to enjoy the beer, the brewery and more of the beer. The … Continue reading Won’t Somebody Please Think of the Children?

San Diego Beer Trip, Days 2 and 3

Amid a day of meetings, I was able to squeeze in visits to two breweries in San Diego. I had an afternoon meeting in the downtown area, so I wanted to stay downtown and not have to catch another cab or Uber from a restaurant/brewery to the meeting location. Luckily, there was a restaurant/brewery right near where my meeting was – The Beer Company. Seems … Continue reading San Diego Beer Trip, Days 2 and 3

San Diego Beer Trip, Day 1

Alright, so technically I’m down in San Diego for work, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t explore the awesome beer scene in San Diego. Getting off of the plane, you recognize that this town doesn’t mess around, and are greeted with a Stone Brewing outpost. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to have an overpriced beer at the airport. In the evening, after my meetings … Continue reading San Diego Beer Trip, Day 1

Ommegang to re-release early Game of Thrones beers.

Game of Thrones is now a worldwide phenomenon, but if you missed Ommegang’s first two companion brews, Iron Throne Blonde Ale and Take the Black Stout, soon you’ll have a chance to try them. Josh Goodstadt, HBO’s VP of Global Licensing, said, “The popularity of the beers has grown right alongside the popularity of the show, and we are thrilled to give these first two brews a second … Continue reading Ommegang to re-release early Game of Thrones beers.

Searching for Snow Beer in the USA – Part 2

Our friend Jose and I recently argued about the value of San Francisco, over a beer of course. As if usually the case with our debates, he vehemently expressed his dislike of San Francisco which made me reciprocate with wholehearted support for The City. However I can honestly say I was greatly disappointed by my recent trip through Chinatown in search of Snow Beer. On … Continue reading Searching for Snow Beer in the USA – Part 2
