Last weekend my buddy John invited me to Brew Drink Dream Fest 2 which took place in Culver City. The mini beer fest is put on by Pipe Dream Brewery which seems just like a few dudes that really love making tons of beer in their garage (what I dream on doing someday). They had a great selection of different types of brews. I’d have to say my favorite was the Offshore Breeze but Green Dragon and Double Dubbel were great too.
Russian River’s seasonal release of Pliny the Younger when on tap at Hollingshead in Orange this morning at 10am. I pulled into the parking lot at about 10:05am only to witness a long line of people waiting to get into the sandwich shop. The line was out the door, down the walkway, and around the corner where it ended in front of the Staples office supply store.
This was drastically different than previous years. Yeah, the shop would get crowded, but a line out the door?! Although it’s a great beer, I didn’t have the patience to wait in a long line and maybe get a taste. Maybe next year.
