It turns out that I live two blocks from a brewery that critcs are saying could be the next Russian River Brewing (one of the top breweries in California, arguably). I went on Thursday to check them out (Track 7) and they had six or sevens different brews from a Belgian style wit to an I.P.A. made with blood oranges, a few DI.P.A.s and something they call Nuckin' Futz which is a sweetis, high alcohol beverage that I avoided. Panic IPA is one of their big sellers I guess. Thursdays are foodtruck night and that night it was a Maine Lobster truck of some kind. I went around 3:30 and didn't stay long enough to partake but I'm making tentative plans with friends to come by on Thursdays and we'll walk over and check rhe action.
Finally, now that I don't drink much, I'm with hin walkng distance to a great beer maker. Life isn't fair. Do I need to ratchet up consumption and take advantage? Possibly!
