i know you've had some garden path, but more is showing up on the shelves here. anything mirage or matchless as you know is great. I was at delarenti about a month ago and was even more surprised at how good the selection was.


yeah those newest mirage cans sound nice. hoping delarenti got some pfriem cans that didn't immediatly sell out. might make a structures stop on sunday on the way back to Seattle.

my favorite brewery is Equilibrium because they avoid bullshit gimmicks, and release like 2-3 beers every week, so i can just walk in whenever to get stuff and the people there are chill. Hudson Valley Brewing, despite some great beers, is an utter shitshow though. people putting out chairs at 9pm the night before for a noon release.

HVB makes some great fruited beers, but i recommend anyone visiting to avoid release days at all costs and just grab some crowlers on an off day.

I don't pay attention to the beer scene anymore and I was wondering if you guys had any thoughts about any of these places? I basically compiled this list from the Beer Advocate forums.

Obviously we can't do all of these, so I was wondering if any are must dos, or must avoids.

Downtown LA
Mumford Brewing
Modern Times Dankness Dojo
Highland Park Brewing

Anaheim/Orange County
Bottle Logic
Bruery Terreux
Bruery
Noble Ale Works
Unsung
Green Cheek Beer Company
Chapman Crafted
Good Beer Company

Torrance
Monkish Brewing
Smog City
Yorkshire Square

Long Beach
Beachwood

San Pedro
Brouwerij West

Venice/Marina Del Rey
Firestone Walker

San Diego
Societe Brewing
Pure Project
AleSmith
Modern Times (if we don't go to LA location)


So we've gotten back from this. First off, thanks to everyone for their recs: we ended up hitting up a bunch of these places you recommended, all of which were good.

We did:

Mumford, Highland Park, and Modern Times in LA

Bruery Terreux in Anaheim

Good Beer Company in Santa Ana

Beachwood in Seal Beach

Pure Project, AleSmith, and Pizza Port in San Diego.

We also hit Toronado and Hamilton's in SD, and Beer Belly in LA.

All of them were good. The standouts were Modern Times, Bruery Terreux, and Pure Project. Really loved Hamilton's too. Great goddamn drunken trip.

It's serviceable, but nothing to write home about. bar del corso (better food no good beers on tap though) or breezy town pizza (inside clockout lounge - good pizza and decent beers on tap) would be a better choice for food + drink. if you're looking for just beer roll down the hill to jellyfish brewing or partake in march mildness at machine house.

I was so psyched to find a grip of pFriem cans yesterday so I grabbed them without a slight hesitation even at like $13

Uh, the IPA sucks? Malty as fuck. What the hell. I love the pilsner but don't remember the IPA being this relatively bad. Oh well.

$10 a six pack at the bougy natural market i found them at. very stoked on that price. as with others in this thread, completely over the current market pricing of hoppy 4 packs.

also haven't had pfriem ipa in years. glad i didn't grab a pack. i remember their hoppy pales i have had being quite good though.

hell yeah, had a pfriem pils last night. great beer. dirt church looks pretty awesome, v cool you were able to get that and snag a b3k. seems like it sold out pretty quickly at the few places i follow. only places i could see it hanging around (if they got any) would be like total wine (there is one in bellevue, Render). A lot of the bottle shops sold out. Another place would be like PCC, whole foods or some QFC's get interesting stuff you wouldn't think.

try guayabera, their pale ale. i think it's better than jai alai


Picked up a six of Guayabera and it’s a total knockout. I agree, even better than Jai Alai.

I went to the Monkish Anniversary party yesterday. So many good beers but Hudson Valley’s Symmetrical Garden was the sleeper hit, it was awesome. It sounded like way too much - a sour DIPA with citra, malted oat,milk sugar, pineapple purée,caramel,coconut, coffee, and vanilla - but it was absolutely delicious and juicy and all the things in it were harmonious somehow, I would drink it forever.

The new Monkish stouts were surprisingly great as well, I would say that The Hiddenness was contending with the Cycle offerings (Moore rare Scoop, Rare Dos, and Monday) for best stout there

Hey DWB, you ever go to Duel when you were still in SFe?

https://www.sfreporter.com/news/2019/03/12/lights-out-for-duel-brewing/

Second Street opened a taproom across Rufina and straight up put them outta business. I guess they were only barely ever hanging on, but still.

cloudburst is closed today and tomorrow. you could do holy mountain and urban family. Id recommend the Masonry in fremont...looks like they have a good taplist going right now and their bottle list has stuff no one else has in the city.

had a fresh pint of aecht schlenkerla fastenbier the other day. not too heavy or smoky, super quaffable. such a killer beer!

also was lucky enough to try some surly darkness aged in fernet barrels which was procured by other half for an event they threw at beer street. I've never even had darkness before, but the menthol, cinnamon, and herbs really shined through. wild stuff. I've never had anything quite like it
