Mutineer Magazine’s 2nd Anniversary party

Monday, May 24th, 2010

The gang at Mutineer Magazine hosted their 2nd Anniversary party at the Falcon Hollywood last night and it was another epic event! There was a great group of wineries, breweries and distillers plus some tasty food and the whole event was broadcast live by the group at New Brew Thursday with Ashley Routson, the Beer Wench. Even the Dos Equis “most interesting man in the world” was there!

It was truly an awesome event with so many cool people there. We even managed an afterparty at Blue Palms Brewhouse and as usual, the fun continued late into the night. It was a good night!

Check out a recap and photos from the night here.

I’m looking forward to a visit from my friend Ashley, aka The Beer Wench, who is traveling across the US on her way to her new home in San Francisco. Check out the article about Ashley.

We’ll be at the Library Ale House tonight around 6:30 tonight and then moving on to the Daily Pint. Tomorrow we’ll be hitting Blue Palms Brewhouse!

Stone 13th Anniversary Brewfest

Sunday, August 23rd, 2009

WOW!!!! What a great time we had at the brewfest! There were so many great beers and so much food. Seriously, this should be a 2 day festival just so we can take it all in. I’m glad we joined with Blue Palms Brewhouse to take the tour bus down. Breakfast, beer on the bus, the brewfest and beer back made us thankful for a bus driver!

If you missed it, check out the review I wrote for Examiner.com.

And check out all of the great beers that were served at this years event.

Suffice it to say, if you were not there… make plans for next year. AWESOME!!

Declaration update, what an amazing Saturday!!!

Sunday, May 17th, 2009

Wow and wow!!  Yesterday had to be one of the very best days ever!

The Bruery in Placentia, CA was celebrating their 1st Anniversary with a big party and let me tell you, those guys know how to throw a party!  The facilities themselves are gorgeous and much bigger than I expected and the beer, oh the beer.  The Bruery specializes in Belgian style ales and head brewer Patrick Rue knows his stuff.  They’ve won awards for the Orchard White and I am just in love with the Melange.  And he brought out another beer aged in brandy barrels.  Just wow.   They also had Beechwood BBQ there serving some delicious food AND there were true Belgian waffles, made with beer and my personal favorite, chocolate covered bacon.  Oh, and we collected more signatures on the Declaration too!  icon smile Declaration update, what an amazing Saturday!!!

After a short rest, it was on to Blue Palms Brewhouse for the Prime Rib Dinner and Firestone Walker 10th, 11th and 12th anniversary vertical tasting.  Owner Brian Lenzo was working it in the kitchen, using some of the 10th and 11th as a marinade for the meat and then cooked it to perfection!  It was served with a salad and a baked potato and let me tell you, that plate could barely hold the 2 pounds of prime rib let alone a potato.  I had never had the Firestone 10th or 11th and they were simply fabulous! 

The Firkins played a rocking concert and we collected a whole bunch more signatures for the Declaration.  I might not have the thousand I aimed for when I started this project but I’ve collected a lot of signatures from people who love craft beer right here in Los Angeles and opened many more eyes to the awesomeness that is craft beer.  It’s been a great week and I really want to thank all the brewpubs and breweries that participated.  Cheers to each of you!

Declaration signing update…

We had a great time at Blue Palms in Hollywood last night and collected quite a few signatures already.  There was a pretty good crowd there for a Tuesday night and they’ve got some great brews on tap! 

Find me today in Pasadena at Lucky Baldwins with their 50 taps and great steak & mushroom pie.  Trust me, it’s good!   Or come out and meet the beer nazi and have a great sandwich at Stuffed Sandwich in San Gabriel!
