There seems to be a ton of really good American craft breweries out in California. The only problem I face in Chicagoland is getting my hands on some of the liquid goodness. After thinking about possibilities, I quickly realized that my cousins lives near Los Angeles. A bright light went off inside my head (a rare occurrence).
After a couple of emails and talking about beer and realizing, that Russ, was a beer enthusiast, it was time to see if he would help out. So I popped the questions and without hesitation, I had my California beer man.
Let’s just say I will be having a Cali beer night with Rich sometime over the next week with reviews to follow. I am stoked and I want to say thank you to Russ.
The first two beers are the ones I can get in Illinois. I have never purchased before because there has always been something else that stroked my fancy more.
- Sierra Nevada – Southern Hemisphere Harvest Fresh Hop Ale
- Beer Republic – Red Rocket Ale
Below are the three beers that I can’t get and look forward to enjoying.
- Ale Smith – IPA
- Firestone Walker – Pale 31
- Firestone Walker – Union Jack
The reviews will be up as soon as I can get Rich over here. Enjoy!
