Joel  Beer should be enjoyed with friends. If no friends are available, grab some strangers. San Diego 🍻🌴☀️ ~ check out the podcast via the link

I joined the pre-dawn gaggle of beer and coffee aficionados in the San Diego “rain” this morning in order to procure the most exclusive beans EVAR. Behold: @mostracoffee Fundamental Summation Barrel-Aged Brazil Oberon natural processed coffee. These beans were aged in their not-yet-roasted “green” form inside of a barrel which previously held the delicious @bottlelogicbrewing @3sonsbrewingco collaboration imperial vanilla stout with coffee. One of 2017’s standout beers in my book. I had a shot of the espresso roast version this morning and definitely look forward to trying a few different brewing methods at home. May even have to try French pressing with some FO 😱 #mostracoffee #coffeestagram #beanstagram #fundamentalsummation #bottlelogicbrewing #3sonsbrewing #coffeewhales #instabeer #beerstagram #beerfolks #beer #craftbeer #craftbeerlover #beerwithpleasantstrangers #indiebeer #coffeeporn

Pretty solid humpday haul (the day of the camels… the hill day... the day after Tuesday Night Beer Society) ~ Really looking forward to trying the @monkishbrewing @fontaflorabrew Illflora - a Saison / Farmhouse Ale with Peppercorns & Atlantic and Pacific Sea Salt. Puttin’ miles on the car in the name of hauling brews! #monkishbrewing #fontaflora #illflora #instabeer #beerstagram #beerfolks #beer #craftbeer #craftbeerlover #beerwithpleasantstrangers #indiebeer #bottlelogic #spacetrace #ineversleep #hazecraze #monkishcans #backyardigans

“Let me just try unplugging it and then plugging it back in... nope that didn’t work. Hmmm... perhaps if I reset the v90 modem. Why is that light still blinking? Could be time to whip out the system diskettes and perform a clean installation...” - I got through before the technical problems set in... and I don’t envy anyone in the IT world when widgets go haywire and cease to function. But yeah... BPT mis-fondled a couple of balls today 😂 #beerrelease #horusfreshales #goshawksgrasp #instabeer #beerstagram #beerfolks #beer #craftbeer #craftbeerlover #beerwithpleasantstrangers #indiebeer #brownpapertickets #theitcrowd #helloithaveyoutriedturningitoffandonagain

Throwback to Woodshop XII on 4/7/18. National Beer Day! I got to try a whole bunch of great beers. This one, Mount Stoutmore, was created by the indie supergroup of collaborators: @jwakefieldbeer @bottlelogicbrewing @angrychairbrewing & @horusagedales ~ Combined, these fine folks form something of a Voltron in the realm of imperial stouts. Mount Stoutmore is an Imperial Stout brewed with Hacienda La Esmeralda Coffee and Reunion Island Bourbon Vanilla Beans. #stoutseason #stoutitout #jwakefieldbrewing #bottlelogicbrewing #angrychairbrewing #horusagedales #mountstoutmore #instabeer #beerstagram #beerfolks #beer #craftbeer #craftbeerlover #beerwithpleasantstrangers #indiebeer #woodshopxii #bourbonvanilla #coffeebeer #pastryarchy

Today *would* have been the day for folks to go snag some BBA Træblod in the public sale. That is... if the swashbuckling pillagers who form the Viking Club hadn’t plundered every last bottle in less than 5 hours during their exclusive presale yesterday. Fortunately, I count myself along the swarthy horde of horny brigands and managed to loot a few bottles to bury alongside my other treasures. Upon blowing the dust off some of the other baubles in my collection, I realized that 2017 CBS would be a worthy companion to uncork alongside one of the new additions. Behold: a side by side tasting that would have only been made better by the addition of waffles & pancakes. In my opinion, BBA Træblod edges out the CBS thanks to a more restrained sweetness complemented by a much fuller maple and bourbon flavor and a rich, smooth mouthfeel. CBS erred more on the roasted coffee and dark chocolate side of the picture, with hints of maple on the back end. 🍁🔥🍻 #cbs2017 #founders #founderscbs #mikkellersd #bbatraeblod #traeblod #maple #maplesyrup #instabeer #beerstagram #beerfolks #beer #craftbeer #craftbeerlover #beerwithpleasantstrangers #indiebeer #maplebeer #stoutitout #stoutseason #pancakesandbooze

Who else will I see at #woodshopxii today?? This avo is a beaut but I’m not gonna bring it... I figure that @guerrillatacos probably will be stocked up. But I am bringing BEER (well actually one is a Braggot) See y’all soon! 🥑🍻 #avo #haas #hemispheres #instabeer #beerstagram #beerfolks #beer #craftbeer #craftbeerlover #beerwithpleasantstrangers #indiebeer #potassium #prepstagram

This past week was a whirlwind of epic bottle shares, meeting a whole bunch of beer friends, both old and new, and generally basking in the vibrant glow of the independent craft beer community. Exhibit 4: An Easter Sunday gathering hosted by @magicbrews. I’m personally bummed out that he’s moving back across the country to the great state of Florida but super thankful to have had the chance to strike up a friendship with him and his awesome wife Cathy. They will both be missed. Wonderful to hang out and share with them and many other beer folks: @alanbwells @kylerbizzle @sdbeertrader @thehoppyyogi @mr_purelycloud @moo_lissa_ @vondooom @theyoungcraftenthusiast #magicbrews #bottleshare #killshot #graveyard #instabeer #beerstagram #beerfolks #beer #craftbeer #craftbeerlover #beerwithpleasantstrangers #indiebeer #whereismyliver #haveyouseenthisliver #missingliver #liversearch

This past week was a whirlwind of epic bottle shares, meeting a whole bunch of beer friends, both old and new, and generally basking in the vibrant glow of the independent craft beer community. Exhibit 3: Inaugural “The Speakeasy” special event & bottle share in Vista, created by @k8ters. It was awesome to spend time with old friends, make some new ones, and share a grip of world-class brews. Nothing satisfies quite like a magnum from Cantillon… or @3fonteinen… or @theveilbrewing. @jesterkingbrewery SPON 1 three year blend (2017) and @degardebrewing The Broken Truck Blend No. 3 both knocked all of my socks and shoes off. A wonderful event all around, complete with tacos made to order, craft cocktails, raffles and cool swag. Count me in for the next one! Awesome to hang with @beerzombies @whohasbeerforus @craftbeer007 @robrewto @ummagummaog @_chrismclaugh @jase.durr @mothedistiller @craftylady24_7 @dans_world21 and many many more #thespeakeasyvista #k8ters #bottleshare #killshot #graveyard #instabeer #beerstagram #beerfolks #beer #craftbeer #craftbeerlover #beerwithpleasantstrangers #indiebeer #whereismyliver #isoanewliver

This past week was a whirlwind of epic bottle shares, meeting a whole bunch of beer friends, both old and new, and generally basking in the vibrant glow of the independent craft beer community. Exhibit 2: the @bineandvine share down at @carnitassnacks in North Park. There were a few goodies popped! I brought the @monkishbrewing fruited Vellichor set: Boysenberry, Raspberry, and Apricot. They tasted pretty terrific almost 2 years after being bottled, with Apricot being my overall favorite. @geoibach brought some #bil in the form of @firestonewalker Rye Double DBA. Also, @doctor_onyx poured out malty judgement upon us by un-waxing all four of the original @thebruery Chronology series (Old Ale). Chronology:18 was the clear winner, in my book. Good times with @craftbeer007 @wheregreatartscollide @alanbwells @essmithsd @jeff_novoa and many others #bineandvineshare #bottleshare #beershare #killshot #graveyard #instabeer #beerstagram #beerfolks #beer #craftbeer #craftbeerlover #beerwithpleasantstrangers #indiebeer #whereismyliver #myliverismissing

This past week was a whirlwind of epic bottle shares, meeting a whole bunch of beer friends, both old and new, and generally basking in the vibrant glow of the independent craft beer community. Exhibit 1: @tuesdaynightbeersociety weekly share, hosted last week at the bustling hub of gastronomical and craft beer delights @plan9alehouse.

Behold the face of a man who has reached a great goal in life: to get his lips around the dusty neck of a bottle of Chez Monus... the fabled Alpine sour... a Belgian style blended ale aged in wine barrels with white peaches and apricots added. Gonna miss hanging out with you @magicbrews ! Hope Florida treats you as well as San Diego has. Thank you for sharing the time and delicious brews. Beer people are the best people. #alpinebeercompany #chezmonus #wildale #peachbeer #apricotbeer #instabeer #beerstagram #beerfolks #beer #craftbeer #craftbeerlover #beerwithpleasantstrangers #indiebeer #magicbrews
