Why we're here...

Beer culture is coming of age. At any store, restaurant, bar, or friend's house you can now find at least a few good brews. In fact, there seem to be so many new beers, breweries and bars it's difficult to separate the good, the bad, and the mediocre.

If you're going spend $10 on one beer, what should you buy? If you're going to drive 2 hours to check out a brewery, what's worth your time? If you're going to plan a Friday night, what has a good selection and friendly atmosphere? We're here to help you answer these questions.

Dust Bowl Brewing Company Opens in Turlock

Dust Bowl Brewing Company opened on August 1 in Turlock at 200W. Main St.

They have a range of styles, although from looking over reviews their Hops of Wrath IPA seems to be the popular choice. It has a 3.28 our of 5 on Rate Beer and a B+ or 3.98 out of 5 average on Beer Advocate. These sites also have several other of their beers reviewed, but most of of them only have 1 review.

The Brew Master is Don Oliver won Sam Adam's Long Shot Homebrew contest in 2006 and in 2008 he completed his UC Davis Master Brewers Program. Don also received the J S Ford Award  from the Institute of Brewing & Distilling. UC Davis must be doing something right, because the last 3 winners have been from there. Either way, it sounds like Don has a lot of potential as a brewmaster.

The Blog will be adding Dust Bowl to the breweries we must visit.
