A little @moderntimesbeer before hitting the airport.  Transit of Venus (#rye #grisette) and Palace of Paper Sacks (#winebarrelaged #sour #blonde) win the beer name awards and my purchase decision.  #barrelaged #craftbeer #respectcraftbeer #californiabeer #sandiego
Nice evening @ballastpointbrewing with a young couple who invited me to play #Uno at the bar.  Left to right: #bourbonbarrelaged Piper Down #ScottishAle (decent); Boob Check something (should have been the winner, but you can see it's the first one gone); Sea Wench Blueberry Sour (respectable); Sea Rose Tart Cherry (the winner). #craftbeer #respectcraftbeer #californiabeer #california #sandiego #miramar #beeramar #wings #fishtacos
@mikehessbrewing featured a blood orange #IPA which might just be the best IPA I've have. Blueberry Berlinerweisse was also great - probably my favorite in the flight.  I went here for the Vienna Cream Ale, and it didn't disappoint... #craftbeer #respectcraftbeer #California #californiabeer #cabeer #sandiego #Miramar #beeramar #commemorativeglass #hopeitdoesntbreak
Still not a fan of #IPA or of the adjective #juicy, but if any beer warrants the description, @14erbrewing Mt Massive does. @tavour #craftbeer #respectcraftbeer #colorado #coloradobeer #cobeer #Denver @squirreldrinkingwine #godawgs #tailgate
@alewerks Pumpkin was a better beer than my @washingtonhuskiesfootball was a defense yesterday.  Not too #sweet, not too #spicy.  @tavour #craftbeer #respectcraftbeer #Virginia #virginiabeer #vabeer #Williamsburg #spiceale #pumpkinale @squirreldrinkingwine #dawgfan
@funkwerks peachy #sour #Saison was #simplysuperb.  What a way to kick off my @washingtonhuskiesfootball Dawgs thrashing the #cardinal... #dubnation  @tavour #craftbeer #respectcraftbeer #colorado #cobeer #coloradobeer #boulder #champions #pac12 #pac12champions #dawgs #dawgmination @squirreldrinkingwine
Who remembers the "bitter beer face" advertising from the '90s? I loved how Keystone took a swipe at Heineken, which, although the trendy beer at the time, was truly unpleasant to drink.  Fast forward a generation and #bitter #IPA is the new darling.  Is @woodlandempirealecraft calling out IPA drinkers as "sheeple" the way Keystone called out '90s-era hipsters for their choices?  Kudos for simultaneously cashing in on the wave if they are.  @tavour #craftbeer #respectcraftbeer #idahobeer #Idaho #boise #pc #sheeple

I liked @brewmasterjack Tennessee Prinse, and decided to suspend my aversion to #IPA for these guys.  After all, what can go wrong when #grapefruit is in the name? Nothing went wrong with Grapefruit Garden of Grass, but it was a fairly typical IPA at the end of the day rather than the citrus party I'd hoped for.  @tavour #craftbeer #respectcraftbeer #mabeer #massachusetts #northampton #glowsticks @pandadrinkingbeer

This is my last Local's Stash.  @crazymtnbrewery is in love with #bitter, and consistently overuses hops in its beer.  I'm usually a "three strikes" assessor, but #bourbonbarrelaged Lawyers Guns and Money #barleywine was too intriguing a name to pass up.  I'm 0-4 now with these guys, and closing the door on this brewery.  More #hops for the rest of you.  @tavour #craftbeer #respectcraftbeer #coloradobeer #colorado #Denver #frankzappa
Maltier than a typical #IPA, @hairofthedogbrewing adds a little #sweet to the #bitter of their Blue Dot DIPA.  Interesting, but the best beer of the night was the Trappist Westvleteren.  Good company to be in... @tavour #craftbeer #respectcraftbeer #oregonbeer #oregon #portland #doubleipa #beerclub
Geyser Gose is one of my favorite movie characters.  Decent beer, too. @tavour @stoxic #craftbeer #respectcraftbeer @eviltwinbrewing @tworoadsbrewing #connecticutbeer #ctbeer #Stratford #Halloween #trickortreat #sour #sourale #beer #icelandicmoss #kelp #seasalt #earthy #theusualsuspects @kevinspacey
Very nice #cider from @missiontrailcider.  Light, crisp, refreshing.  #newtownpippin #apple #craftbeer #respectcraftbeer #californiacider #california #bradley #buxom #bikini #drinkmarker @pandadrinkingbeer
Tasty like liquid @jollyrancher.  Jolly Rancher Sour Apple is more sour; @lindemansbeers should take note. #lambic #apple #craftbeer #respectcraftbeer #belgianbeer #squirrel #cookiecutter #squirreleatingcookies @pandadrinkingbeer
Flight #2 was at @therarebarrel.  Dark sour was the winner there, tied with the #grilledcheesesandwich.  Last time I was there, they used only one base for all their flavors.  Several months later, there were at least 3 bases - a base #sourale, a #Saison, and whatever was combined with the base sour to make the dark - progress.  #craftbeer #respectcraftbeer #californiabeer #berkeley @squirreldrinkingwine
Enjoying a flight at @cleophus_quealy.  #craftbeer #respectcraftbeer #californiabeer #sanleandro #lilbrownjug @squirreldrinkingwine
Mercifully, @atgbrewery Regretful Tattoo is not a regretful beer.  A solid #stout with one of the weirder descriptions I've seen on label art.  #wiggitywoo!  @tavour #craftbeer #respectcraftbeer #kentuckybeer #louisville #kentucky #celery
I like #pears, but am not a fan of pear flavored things.  I'm not a #whitewine drinker.  @missiontrailcider Perry is like a carbonated white wine with a slightly fruitier, somewhat sweeter flavor.  It's no #jerkum, but it's pretty damn good. #postgymtreat #postgymfuel #perry #heywheresperry #perrytheplatypus #craftbeer #craftcider #respectcraftbeer #respectcraftcider #california #californiacider #Bradley #ravioli
@taxmanbrewing Strawberry Rhubarb Wit-held is a hot summer day beer.  Light and refreshing, it lacks most of the medicinal flavor I typically associate with #witbeer. Lightly #sour with a subtle fresh #strawberry flavor.  Hard to say how present the #rhubarb flavor is as I don't really know what rhubarb tastes like - I'm sure it's there... On one hand I should have saved this for a hot summer day; on the other hand it's great with #spicy #chipsandsalsa!  @tavour #craftbeer #respectcraftbeer #sourale #indianabeer #bargersville #chipotlesalsa
