A visit from family put a damper on any crazy beer drinking shenanigans this past weekend, but I did manage to make what I could get count.
On Saturday I had the opportunity to try out “Cape Towne” by Automatic Brewery when I swung by Tiger Tiger. This is a nice pale ale, good hops with a bright citrusy flavor. Enjoyable to say the least. Lee has knocked out another very nice beer.
Next up was this very Monday, I made a point to make it to Societe Brewing. Many of you know just how impressed I’ve been the beer they are making at this Kearny Mesa brewery. Well, to make things even more exciting they have unveiled a new double IPA called, “The Roust About”. It clocks in at 9.2% ABV but you would hardly notice…initially. This beer has what I like to call a sneaky factor. Easy drinking with bright citrus notes and maybe the slightest of breadyness. The hops are right upfront and complement the other flavors very nicely. This is an exceptional double IPA that I believe even the most critical of palettes will enjoy. Societe keeps making the good stuff! I can’t stress how much you need to be up here if you’ve have, for whatever reason, not made it yet. Call me, I will go with you.
So while a relatively, get it?, uneventful weekend for me, there is still beer to be drunk around town that can knock your socks off. Hopefully you made it out to one of the many events this past weekend to enjoy the craft this town offers. Let me know how your experience was.
See you at the bars and keep your eyes peeled this week for the legendary “Pliny the Younger”. It’s working its way down the coast!
