MBYP’S 2nd Annual Summerfest

Beer at Manhattan Beach Young Professionals SummerFest 2012.

Saturday July 14th we went to the Manhattan Beach Young Professionals (MBYP) 2nd Annual  Summerfest which featured craft beer, food and music. The first photo is of some of the hand craft beers that were available at the event. To check out which brewers were there check out Got Baddog for all the MBYP Summerfest photos.

This event was sold out and everyone looked like they were having a good time. It was crowded and loud by the end of the event; the street was packed and the music had the crowd dancing.

This next photo is of the Young Guns who were playing and had the crowd jumping. There were three bands that played throughout the event and the music was all good.

The event and the raffle proceeds went to the Manhattan Beach Chamber of Commerce and to P.S. I Love You.

Brewco Manhattan Beach & Simmzy’s Pub

Last night we had a late start for day 4 of American Craft Beer Week. We headed to Brewco in Manhattan Beach, California located at 124 Manhattan Beach Boulevard. I went with the Cismontane Black Dawn (Nitro) brewed with gourmet coffee, brown sugar and oats. This craft beer was rich & complex, very creamy with a hint of hops. It was very good!

We also enjoyed the Spinach & Artichoke Dip which came with toasted sourdough bread and fresh tortilla chips. It was probably one of the best spinach and artichoke dips I have tried. It had plenty of artichokes, bread and chips and it also came with fresh salsa. All of it was yummy.

On our walk back to the car we decided we would step into Simmzy’s to try another American Craft Beer if there was room. We got lucky there was enough room to squeeze in by the bar. I had the Firestone Parabola which just came out this month. This barrel aged imperial stout features bold bourbon and tobacco aromas with a rich dark chocolate, charred oak flavor. I did not really care for it but Lloyd seemed to really enjoy it, I think he started to have beer envy. I am starting to think the oak flavor dark beers are less enjoyable to me, that is twice this week that I did not like an oak flavored beer. Simmzy’s Pub is located at 229 Manhattan Beach Boulevard Manhattan Beach, California.

If you want to see the high quality photos of Brewco and Simmzy’s Pub keep watch at Got Baddog’s American Craft Beer Week to see his photo coverage and reviews. These photos were taken with my Android Motorola Xoom and edited with Google Picaso.
