September First Friday @ Monkish Brewing Company

Hey PG! A quick reminder that THIS FRIDAY September 2nd is our First Friday at Monkish Brewing Company in Torrance. A fan of Belgian inspired beers myself, I’ve been looking forward to this one as our “fresh Belgian” beer event for 2016. The owner Henry is super hospitable and the beer is delicious and priced right. Bring a […]

Tonight! August First Friday @ Wirsthaus

Hey PG! Just a few hours until our First Friday @ Wirsthaus on La Brea tonight and I can’t wait. I first went to Wirsthaus last year for a birthday party and it was a lot of fun. It’s a traditional German restaurant and pub featuring authentic schnitzel, sausages,  potato pancakes, currywurst, and some decent vegetarian […]

Hey PG! I hope this reminder finds you all well, both in life and brew schedule. 🙂 Friday is our June First Friday at Louie’s of Mar Vista, which should be a very chill food and beers event. If you’re not familiar with Louie’s, it’s a well designed restaurant with a beautiful bar and dining […]

May Big Brew Recap

Taking a break from a work conference here in Minneapolis and I can’t help but wonder how the little batch of all-grain Belgian Tripel I brewed at our May 15th Big Brew is doing at this moment. I’m sure it’s almost completely done fermenting and I’d bet it has developed some nice flavors to sip […]

May 6th, First Friday @ El Segundo Brewing Company

Hey PG! Who else had a great time at the Malloy’s place for April’s meeting??  Tumby’s Pizza was exceptional, Scott’s Belgian commercial tasting was perfect, Greg’s [sneaky] Pliny exBEERiment was eye opening, and the LABBC award ceremony was really fun. I probably owe Terry an apology for staying a lil’ too late, sorry about that […]
