19th Annual Great Petaluma Chili Cookoff

As craft beer moves more into the mainstream, the concept of the beer festival has begun to change. While the classic beer festival (long lines, small pours, hours of drinking) i still common, new twists have begun to emerge that bring beer and other facets of culture together. One of the natural matches is the Chili Cookoff. This year, the Great Petaluma Chili Cookoff expanded the craft beer presence and created a unique event that brought beer, salsa and chili to the community and was greeted with open arms.

Kenwood Restaurant and Bar

In Sonoma County, there’s a quiet debate going on. Highway 12 hugs the terrain of the Valley of the Moon and twists its way through Wine Country and the town of Sonoma. Along the US-101 corridor, Beer Country is more apt as there appears to be a brewery (or a few) in every town along the way. Further West, the remnants of once dominant apple and poultry industries dot the rural landscape, rich in local products. In reality, all of these things are Sonoma County and Kenwood Restaurant and Bar embraces the taste of the region and utilizes the strengths to create an experience that is uniquely Sonoma County.  Continue reading Kenwood Restaurant and Bar

San Francisco Beer Week 2015: My Recap (Part 1)

San Francisco Beer Week has come to an end. For everyone, with the myriad of events to attend, each Beer Week is unique. In years past I have tried to apply themes to my activities: IPAs, sours, staying local, etc. This year, the demands of life made the theme “Get it where you can.” As such my Beer Week started a bit early, missed some of the major events, but was a great time and I can’t wait for next year.  Continue reading San Francisco Beer Week 2015: My Recap (Part 1)

Beer of the Week: Abita Brewing Mardi Gras Bock

One of my favorite holidays of the year is Mardi Gras. Maybe it’s my Catholic upbringing, or maybe it’s my fascination with a city to which I’ve never been, but I love me some Fat Tuesday. As such, it only seems appropriate to crack some craft beer from the Crescent City to mark the day. The Beer of the Week is Abita Brewing’s Mardi Gras Bock.  Continue reading Beer of the Week: Abita Brewing Mardi Gras Bock
