Coldfire Brewing (Eugene, OR)
Little Giant ISA- India Session Ale- (ABV 4.9%, IBU 34)
Commercial description: Little Giant, you say? Large quantities of Galaxy hops are added to a house blend of hops to create dank, tropical aromas and flavors that defy such a small beer. Melon, pineapple and mango are initially experienced on the draw and are followed by big citrus notes. Aromas of pineapple, pine and starfruit are prominent throughout.
Almanac Beer Co. (San Francisco, CA)
Splendid Population- Imperial Sour- (ABV 8.8%)
Commercial Description: Splendid Population is blended from select barrels of imperial sour blonde ale aged with muscat grapes, nectarines, peaches, and vanilla beans. Part wine, part beer and part autumn harvest—this brew is 100% California. Pair with roasted chicken dishes, fresh abalone, or peach ice cream.

San Diego Brewers Guild
Capital of Craft- IPA- (ABV, 7.0%)
- I had this at Knotty Barrel in downtown while visiting San Diego last week. Just seeing the name I was excited just to try and was so glad that it was not disappointing. Very far from it actually. Talk about nostalgia . Smooth, tasty, and hoppy on a nice day is what a San Diego IPA is all about. Thank you San Diego Brewers Guild!
