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.

Upcoming Event: Benefit for Beer at Rubicon Brewery

What: Rubicon Brewing Company hosts a silent, rare beer auction to benefit the California Small Brewers Association
Where: Rubicon Brewing Company
When: This Saturday September 10. First auction is from 1-4pm and the second from 5-8pm

"These beer offerings are typically only known within a small circle of brewers and beer enthusiasts, and most have never been available to the public before. Proceeds from this silent auction will benefit the California Small Beer Association and the Northern California Brewers Guild – two important organizations that support and protect the California craft beer industry."

"A few of the items to be auctioned include:
  • Brandy barrel-aged Winter Scotch Ale from Iron Springs Brewery
  • Sierra Nevada Dogfish Head collaboration Life and Limb #2, only a small handful of bottles signed by Ken and Sam
  • 2009 Sea Monster Imperial Stout from Ballast Point
  • A trio of vintage beers from the Port Brewing Veritas collection
  • A vertical flight of 2011, 2010, 2008, 2006, 2003 and 2000 Bigfoot Ale"
