beer related


It is a Christmas routine to take a beer trip all around Southern California. We did that in 2014, and I labelled the photos when I added them to my computer, but computers - Dell, a least, being what they are- the pictures are all over the Pictures storage area. And I can't find them in order, so catch as catch can- here are some Xmas beer related photos. Enjoy. Pretty sure the last one is from "Rip Current"



The others- not so sure about. Rip Current was pretty decent- not a lot of seating area to sip.

Ballast Point, CA

My pictures from Ballast Point in San Diego County. This is a really nice brewery. Great beer, out door seating and pretty good bathrooms. There is also seating inside. When we were there, it wasn't too crowded, probably a weekend afternoon. The parking is easy and its easy to find. And they have Sculpin, what more can I say?

Modern Times

Over the Christmas Holidays, we took a drive to San Diego and stopped at a few breweries and sampled all kinds of tasty beers. One of the favorites breweries was Modern Tmes

Its a neat little place. There's a mural constructed of sticky notes on the back wall. The beer is pretty good and I had iced coffee which was fantastic. I even had the compulsion to buy 12 oz of the coffee - Kenyan Peaberry. Yummy.

The iced coffee and one of their beers- which one? I can't recall.




Looks like the beer menu on the wall on the top picture and a wall of comic book covers? Could be...






One awesome touch of decorating was the stacks of books under the Christmas tree and under the bar counter. If you get bored, pull out a book to read. 



And this is the mural constructed of sticky note. It's on the rear wall as you head to the bathroom. As you get closer to it, it becomes apparent the mural is made of pieces of paper and when you are right on top of it, you see they are sticky notes. Incredible and a good mural, as well.


On the wall heading back to the bathrooms, samples of kids' coloring on a line. Nice touch. I'd go back again. It's a nice, little brewery.

flowers

I participate in a summer art fair and one of the other artists brings in fresh flowers every morning for the ladies restroom. They are refreshing and pretty.
