Tuesday Musings

I’m working on a post about my recent trip to Santa Barbara, but in the meantime here is the first video I shot for Beer Belly.


Tomorrow, we will be headed to Golden Road Brewing in Atwater Village to shoot another video. I am really excited that we’ll get to speak with Meg Gill, co-owner of the brewery. I’m hoping to get more time editing this video so that I can improve upon the previous one.


I am also planning a return to homebrewing. My last beer was a pale ale brewed with Calypso hops. It was a great beer with a lot of pear and apple flavors. A friend of mine gifted me a pound of Cascade hops grown on his parent’s farm, so I’m putting together a recipe that will lend itself to Cascade. I’m thinking of brewing a (Brown) IPA, or a hoppy wheat beer.

The Beer World V.3

I’m working (slowly) on a piece about my trip to Flagstaff, AZ, which is an amazing beer town. But in the meantime enjoy another issue of The Beer World.

I never ever thought I would embed a Hanson video into a blog. But it seems fitting today. And be real with yourself. We all know that you hum along to this song and belt out the chorus. Just let go and enjoy yourself.

We really do love beer. Well, I’m here to give you a few options for the beer lover among your family and friends. There are a ton of great options for this holiday.
