Staff Pick: Microbrew Beer
Our Staff Pick this week comes from Jessica Hilt, our Director of Client Services. Always the contrarian, instead of recommending software or a website, her Staff Pick is local microbrew.
Handcrafted local beer is exceptional in flavor and promotes the local brewery scene. That means Iím not stuck with one yellow, fizzy beer at the tap but more creative, interesting beers to enjoy.
San Diego has a distinct style of microbrew Ė very hoppy and strong. The best example of this style is Stoneís Arrogant Bastard Ale. With its aggressive and slightly bitter flavor, this beer deserves its name.
We also support a thriving community of Belgian beer lovers which is why Lost Abbey Brewery was so well-received here. Their Red Barn Ale is a great summer brew that light is enough to be drunk on any Southern California day.
