Battle of the Brews 2014

In Sonoma County, spring is dragging its feet, but the 20-30 club aimed high in an attempt to bring us a bit of reprieve, warming our collective hearts (and filling our stomachs) with great food and great beer for a great cause.  Continue reading Battle of the Brews 2014

San Francisco Beer Week 2014: Sonoma County Edition

San Francisco Beer Week has ended and we’re still alive.

Pliny the Younger 2014

Every year, beer drinkers get in line outside Russian River Brewing Company for Pliny the Younger. The lines continue for 2 weeks and are a constant topic of conversation for locals. The question that always follows is “Is it worth it?” This is a difficult question to answer unless, of course, you’ve actually experienced a Pliny the Younger release day. Here’s a look at the release day and also on the two week stretch during which Pliny the Younger is available to patrons of the Downtown Santa Rosa pub. Continue reading Pliny the Younger 2014

For a beer lover here in the Bay Area, there really is no time of year like SF Beer Week.

NYC Craft Beer Festival: Winter Harvest 2013

The NYC Craft Beer Festival was in a part of town that I’ve seldom been to; Lexington Avenue in the 20′s, right across from Baruch College.  It was held at the 69th Armory (aka Lexington Armory).  It still amazes me as a life long New Yorker that works in Manhattan daily that I can still end up in areas where I feel like I’m a guest in my own town.  That’s just how big New York City is and why I love it here.  Lexington Armory is simply huge, the hall/gym/auditorium where the main beer stands were set up was ranging. The ceiling had to be dozens of feet above our heads.   Continue reading NYC Craft Beer Festival: Winter Harvest 2013

Sonoma County Beer, Cider and Spirits Conference 2013

Last winter, Sonoma County’s Economic Development Board injected itself into the craft beer world with a survey handed out at the Pliny the Younger release at Russian River Brewing. The seed was planted that day and this week, we saw that seed sprout in the form of the Sonoma County Beer, Cider and Spirits Conference held at the Hyatt Vineyard in Santa Rosa. The announcement of this event generated excitement to the tune of a full house, but would that seed and sprout be able to bear fruit?  Continue reading Sonoma County Beer, Cider and Spirits Conference 2013

GreenHopFest 2013

Not all beer festivals fill large event spaces and feature unlimited pours in tiny glasses. Some are more intimate and are held at your favorite pubs. GreenHopFest is one of the latter, and in it’s second year at the Toad in the Hole Pub brought a celebration of fresh hopped beers and an an opportunity to enjoy the great fall weather of Sonoma County.  Continue reading GreenHopFest 2013
