U can't shake a stick at this deal...

Yesterday, was my birthday and I spent part of it at one of the best places to enjoy local San Diego brews, Luigis at the beach.

On Thursday's they have anything local $2.50/pint, say what? Yes, $2.50! This is remarkable when you look at the tap list: Stone Double Bastard, 09-09-09, Alesmith horny devil, Karl strauss belgian brown, Lightning Pilsner, the list goes on and on. A good time was had by all, I recommend 09' x 3.

The food is good and service is great. And, your a block from the Pacific Ocean.

Chillin @ QUAFF

Last night was the infamous QUAFF holiday party. So much beer on hand both homebrew and commercial. It was good to recognize so many beer fanatics. AGAIN, I forgot to bring my camera, I need to remedy that. All the major players of the brew scene were there, Alesmith, SD Brewco and Sean @ Chillindamos. He is doing fantastic things recently like brewing 40 gallons of homebrew (40 gallons!) and making fantastic brews with agave. Word on the street is he has sourced an american oak barrel, I can't wait to see what he does with that. Maybe a blog-o-collaboration brew in the future with Chillindamos...?

The beers that stood out last night were, Goose Island Bourbon Stout, Deschutes Black Butte, Alesmith 2010 Decadence (more on that another time), and SD BrewCo.'s collaboration IPA. The best homebrew a Pilsner.

Saturday is almost here!!!

Saturday evening is the QUAFF homebrew club holiday party. Last year was a blast! They had 15 kegs on tap and had 2 stations where they opened commercial bottles. These bottles were rare examples, one off's, not imported into the U.S., you get the idea.

I can't wait. I will report back w/photos hopefully.

P.S. Our winter storm here in San Diego was massive winds w/rain, all of one day.
