Came up with a solid list of craft brews thanks to your responses and they have been a hit at my brother's bar. A couple of the crowd favorites are the St. Archer IPA and Mother Earth Cali Creamin. The response was so good that they've decided that they want to get some craft beer on tap.

Btw, stopped by Noble Ale Works and Bottle Logic yesterday. For those of you that are local to Anaheim/Orange, you should definitely check these places out. Phenomenal beer and chill spots to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon . :obscene-drinkingcheers:

Look what I found at BevMo. They said it was the only batch to be delivered to California and they had exclusive rights. I went back three times and bought everything they had. I'm open to gear/gun trades...whatcha got?

Insanely awesome barrel-aged beers in more styles than you can imagine. Just be sure to bring a DD or a free afternoon, those beers are all over 10%. It's not always open and it has different hours than the main taproom, but it's worth planning around it.



If you guys are hitting Buellton, Figueroa Mnt Brew Co is a must stop. They are kicking out some really nice brews. Lizards Mouth Imperial IPA is tops on my ipa list.

I did land this Westbrook gose from out of state which was awesome. And the evil twin despite being a diferent style looked almost the same and tasted very similar without the saltiness. It's around... worth seeking for a canned sour....the Anderson Valley canned goses are still hard to beat for the price, though. I heard they are making a watermelon one.Image

Crenshaw and Lomita. It's called Southland. Used to be more of a sports bar theme but they switched up the business model this year and it's now more of a whiskey bar/speakeasy kind of spot. http://www.southlandbar.com/

I know its not a Cali beer, but Purple Haze is hands down one of my favorite craft beers. Made in LA , Purple Haze a lager brewed with real raspberries added after filtration. It is a pilsner with wheat malts and Vanguard hops. So far its one of the few craft beers I've found that doesn't have a harsh after taste, I can drink them all day long without getting a heavy stomach.

Haha, exactly! My brother bought CJ's about 4-5 years ago for dirt cheap. Remodeled it and turned it into one of the best bars in the Southbay.

Canned Grapefruit sculpin is hitting stores now. IMO, that beer is too tasty for its own sake, and in the can its a perfect boat beer. At $15 -$16 bucks a six pack the argument can be made that its on the pricey side....but I say at around 2.60 a beer or so it's still a very affordable luxury especially compared to other beers cough cough pliny.
Canned beers actually keep light and oxygen away from the beer better than bottles....so the low brow stigma need not apply any more. What is a keg anyways?.....A giant aluminum can.

Just enjoyed this delicious Prairie Bomb! This is one if the better stouts I've tried with its intense dark chocolate and coffee notes right at the front of the mouth and I got a subtle pepper flavor at the back of the mouth. Very well balanced stout.

Went to Pizza Port OB for Fathers day. Had their first run Double IPA "Kook" side by side with a Pliny for comparison and it's equally as good...actually after just killing off the sixer I picked up....I'd prefer it any day.
Look for it in cans, great value as it's a huge beer... A sixer of 16oz Kook was $16....if it was Pliny that would be about $40 or more.
Prior to that, stared with a sour of theirs called "Beer Hunter" ....fantastic, very similar to RR Temptation I thought.
Bumbed around OB afterwards....saw a huge raging boil from the end of the pier... Straight out of the MB Channel.

Check the Kook release here.

All of Knee Deep's IPA's are excellent with the citra being the best IMO. You can find it around town Bill. Bevmo's and some of the bottle shops have been carrying it but beware it's $11 for a bomber and check the dates. It needs to be fresh.

A friend brought this over a couple days ago and I was surprisingly impressed.

Been hitting up Monkish in Torrance lately. Pretty hooked on their beers right now.

Heard about a new brewery called Mumford in LA that is supposed to be really good. Anyone been?
