Sunday we went to a bottle share event at Sophie’s Place located at 1708 South Catalina Avenue Redondo Beach, California. As soon as we found out there was going to be a 3 Floyds at the bottle share we knew we were not going to miss this event. The first photo is a 3 Floyds Apocalypse Cow beer, this is one of their hoppy brews so Lloyd was pretty happy to get to share some. If they have more bottle share events I may have to ship some 3 Floyds here the next time I go to Indiana to visit friends and family. Here is a few of the beers that were at this bottle share:
Epic Fermentation Without Representation
Fifty Fifty Eclipse brandy
Fifty Fifty Eclipse Elijah
Fifty Fifty Eclipse grand cru
Founders Blushing Monk
Founders Breakfast Stout
Founders Frangelic Mountain Brown
Founders Imperial Stout
Freemont Brewing Bourbon Barrel Abominable
Goose Island Bourbon County Coffee
Goose Island Bourbon County Vanilla
Hoppin’ Frog Doris The Destroyer
Jack’s Abbey Hoponius Union
Jester King Black Metal
We had a really fun time at this event which had a huge list of beers being shared, visit Got Baddog to see all the photos and the list of beers that made an appearance. Sophie’s Place provided some hummus trio plates and french fries for everyone to enjoy. I really like their hummus plate and now know where to go when I am craving some hummus. The trio of hummus included Garbanzo, Black bean and Edamame, yum.
Our next beer event will be tomorrow night for Business & Beer which will be held at Strand Brewing Company in Torrance, California. Come out and enjoy a beer with us and lets talk!
American Craft Beer week day 3 of our journey through this week. Yesterday we headed over to 1321 Taproom in Torrance, California to enjoy our first American craft beer of the day. I had the Old Chub which was a great start. It is an scotch ale with the description as a rich pudding taste balanced with cinnamon and brown sugar and it was yummy.
The bartender was very nice and the atmosphere was enjoyable. If you are enjoying craft beer week in Torrance, California, you may want to stop in for one of their American craft beers on tap. I recommend the Old Chub if you like dark beer, it was really nice. 1321 Taproom is located at 1321 Sartori Avenue Torrance, California.
Next we headed over to the Hudson House in Redondo Beach, California to have another beer and dinner. I had the Unita Organic Black Lager since it was the only dark beer on tap. It was pretty good one to end with for the night. We also shared their hamburger with shoestring fries. I did really enjoy their hamburger more than any others I have had a brew pubs. Hudson House is located at 514 North Pacific Coast Hwy Redondo Beach, California.
I took these photos with my Motorola Xoom and edited them with Google Picasa. If you want to see the high quality photos from this American Craft Beer week head over to Got Baddog to see his view of these craft beers.
This week is American Craft Beer week and I have been enjoying each evening so far this week! Yesterday we went to the Select Beer Store and the Redondo Beach Brewing Company. At Select Beer Store I was able to enjoy three samples of dark beers they had on tap. This photo is of those three dark beers. First dark beer is the Strand Batch 100 Stout, second was the Smog City Ground Works Coffee Porter and the last one was Monkis Anomaly. I enjoyed each one of these but I think my favorite was the Strand Batch 100 Stout, yum.
So finally I have a new category for this blog, Beer & Wine! This week has been fun so far and I am sure I will be enjoying the entire week.
