Another awesome day, especially the Rare Beer Tasting!
Wow! What a first day at the Great American Beer Festival! Simply awesome and amazing and so many other superlatives!
Instead of repeating myself on the awesomeness, check out my GABF Live column for Examiner.com.
Tomorrow is the big day! I’ll be flying out of LAX in the morning headed to Denver for the GABF! I absolutely cannot wait for what is guaranteed to be an awesome experience!
Check out a couple of articles on LA area breweries headed that way as well:
The Great American Beer Festival is later this month and Destination Beer Show will be there!! I cannot wait to discover new breweries and try so many new beers! And even better, we’ll be doing some interviews which will soon enough be posted on site!
I’ll be working with Examiner.com to conduct interviews and promote the event and of course we’ll be Tweeting as we do. It’s gonna be fun!
Look for some preview articles and brew reviews on the GABF leading up to the event. It’s gonna be fun! And if you’re there, come and say hi!
Check out the profile I’ve written for my favorite Hollywood beer joint, Blue Palms Brewhouse. And if you make it to Hollywood, put this place on your list of places to visit!!
Quick note about the chili cookoff yesterday… it was a great time! There were over 30 different chilis and lots of great beer to enjoy. Check out my review of the event and plan to attend next year!
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!
I’ve just been asked to be a chili judge for the Hi Times Chili Cookoff in Costa Mesa this coming Sunday August 30! Being from Texas, I bring a pretty solid pedigree of chili cooking and judging and of course I know my craft beers which are what’s being served at the event. Stone, Maui Brewing and others will be on tap. I can’t wait!
If you’re in LA… come and see me and enjoy some beer and chili!
