    I went to the grocery store today while running errands for my parents and found that Vons is now carrying Goose Island beers. I flipped my shit. I already had a Honker's Ale and am now drinking a Summertime. Brings me back to Pitchfork 2008.

    I love their specialties (Bourbon County Stout!) but for everyday beers they are one of my favorites. The 312 wheat is so drinkable. I'd put them neck and neck with Mammoth and Brooklyn Brewery for my favorite catalog of beers.

    Holy shit. Deal. When it arrives I'll look at how you packaged it, and if Mammoth bottled it I'll send you back an imperial lager with coffee aged with oak soaked in tequila.

    Thank you, Zach. You're a saint. I've always wanted to try this. I'll be pouring them shortly before attending a Trampled by Turtles concert this evening. The timing couldn't have been better.

    Fuck if only I could make it.I had a blast last beer festival we met up at. Also last LA Beer week i noticed one of the founders of Maltose Falcons (oldest homebrewers club in California and started in 1974, four years before it was legal) is a consultant for Wolf Creek so try some of their beers out.There's about seven breweries I haven't tried that are on that list which makes this sound even better.

    I went up for half-priced growler day at Mammoth and came back with their pale ale and the Fire and Eisbock, which is slightly tart, super malty, 10% and delicious.

    I leave for Belgium in less than a week. Have lined up a couple in-person trades over there and have plans for a local to drive us to Westvleteren, St. Bernardus and De Struise. And we're staying within walking distance of Cantillon. Can't wait!

    Blue Moon released two craft beers, Pine in the Neck and Tongue Thai'ed. Pine in the Neck is a completely unremarkable double IPA with juniper berries added. People may enjoy it, but Mammoth Brewery's double IPA has a more pronounced Juniper flavor as well as a great sage explosion, so in comparison this just did nothing for me. Tongue Thai'ed, however, is a truly interesting Belgian-style ale brewed to pair with Thai food. They add a bunch of basil and some lemongrass and it turns into a very spicy, rich brew with a great flavor and even better finish. I was surprised this is something coming from a fairly large brewery, as it's complex and really unique. I'd recommend tracking down a bottle, which shouldn't be too hard at all.

    I love the 395.

    That Thai beer sounds good. Those are terrible names though.

    It's Blue Moon. That they were able to craft an interesting, unique brew is more than you could ever expect.

    Vegan Beer Fest was really outstanding - I highly recommend people try to go next year. Regular admission was $40 for unlimited pours from 1pm-6pm. There were about 40 different breweries represented with their owns booths, and many of them had 2-4 different beers on tap. We got really nice glass 6 oz taster glasses and everybody was happy to fill them up as much as we wanted. It became clear that it was not only impossible to try every single beer, but even getting a taste from half of the breweries was quite a challenge (as there were a lot of very high abv beers there). The event was very crowded, but there was more than enough for everybody to do so the lines were pretty slim for everything.

    There were also about 20 different food vendors, including a couple trucks and a lot of local vegan restaurants having booths. Nearly everybody was serving small-ish tasting portions for $2-4, and it was really easy to get stuffed for $10 over the course of the day. They also had a bunch of bands playing and other activities.

    The only real downside was not nearly enough porta-potties, which resulted in long lines, but I suspect they will remedy that in the future.

    this weekend was Austin Beer Works' second anniversary and they did a big block party/fest at the brewery. girlfriend volunteered for the first half of the day, making us all-you-can-drink/head-of-line for the entire rest of it. awesome time. great beer, great bands, great food.

    the beers i tried:
    peacemaker--mild IPA, one of my favs. i dont like IPAs that much. brought lots of this to coachella
    black thunder--bileld as a german schwarz, pretty much a stout. yum. brought this to indio as well.
    fire eagle--IPA, but also mild. hoppier than the peacemaker. still really good.
    pearlsnap--a pils, i believe. but a bit hoppier. variation on a theme it seems.
    heisenberg--complete with walt white suspect sketch logo. sweeter, almost fruitier in body, but still gold. really liked it. kind of like aventinus-light if there were such a thing.
    black IPA--what you'd expect. and good.
    sparklebeer--yup, they actually somehow aerated digestable glitter or something into it. it fucking sparkled. otherwise tasted like maybe a mix of the pearlsnap and the heisneberg. was surprinsingly good.
    soul glo-- billed as a "sour". it was like WTF in your mouth. like drinking straight from the fermenter. not a fan.
    some red ale of theirs--good, a bit fruity.
    last but not least....
    barrel-aged sputnik (russian imperial coffee stout aged in jack daniels barrels). no gimic, you could really taste the whiskey and the oak in it. tasted like an irish coffee. super high abv. cost two tickets instead of one for people who were using the tickets. glad i saved that one for last in the day.
