We’re back! It has been quite awhile since our last post, and we apologize for that. It doesn’t mean we weren’t thinking about or drinking beer, because we were. Instead of touring SoCal breweries this past summer, we were fortunate enough to go on an Irish adventure. The majority of our trip was spent exploring Ireland’s beautiful landscape and local pubs, but we were also able to sneak in a side trip to Belgium and the Netherlands. For photos check out Brian Evans Photography.
Since our return, we have been lining up a few more projects for Thee Beer Book, including up-and-coming breweries and one mind-blowing homebrew setup. So be sure to continue checking in.
Until then, enjoy some photos from a recent beer tasting event hosted by the man of the hour, Bradley Daniels – to see what we mean by “man of the hour,” grab a copy of Brew Your Own Magazine to see the two page spread of Bradley Daniels and his backyard brewery, photos by our very own Brian Evans. Though our focus is not on beer events, we thought this one was particularly enjoyable. The spectrum of beers tasted was mighty vast and the company was delightful as always.
So without further ado… Here is a list of the beers enjoyed at the tasting compliments of Greg Nagel at the OC Beer Blog as well as photos from the evening:
