There can't be good living where there is not good drinking.
Oregon's Deschutes Brewing blurs borders with Hop in the Dark. This Cascadian Dark Ale has subtle coffee undertones from a blend of oats with dark, Munich and Crystal malts and courageous additions of Cascade, Citra and Centennial hops. The dark malt, conceived via the same techniques used to create schwarzbiers, is added to the malt base of a traditional IPA to impart the darker hue. Citrusy aroma.
We kicked off the festival with Deschutes Super Jubel Ale aged in Oregon Oak Pinot barrels. My favorite from the Buzz Tent was the Ninkasi Brewing Co Eugene Collaboration Beer.
Good Beer Month is in July in NYC as declared by the Mayor for the second year running. Good Beer at BAM is one of the marquee events of Good Beer Month and is produced in partnership with Good Beer Seal.
What an exciting evening last night in LA. It was a Top Ten Beer experience! I finally got to meet the original Beer Chick and top female beer experts in the country, Christina Perozzi and Hallie Beaune of The Beer Chicks. They welcomed me at Father's Office in Santa Monica. I share The Beer Chicks passion to bring beer to "the place it deserves, at the forefront of the modern dining experience."
