J Wakefiled Brewing, Miami, FL

I stopped in and tried two beers at J Wakefield Brewing in Miami, FL.  El Jefe is a coconut flavored hefeweizen.  Not my favorite style – it’s me – it’s mot the beer – BUT – you had me at coconut.  And, am I ever glad i tried this beer.  It’s really tasty and refreshing.  I love the hint of coconut.  I also tried Pecans are Forever which is a barrel aged imperial pecan stout.  This is delicious and really strong.  You can feel it.  Great beers!

Highland Park Brewery, Los Angeles, CA

I stopped in at Highland Park Brewery in Los Angeles, California.  For dinner I enjoyed beet salad and cauliflower tacos and paired with their Timbo Pils.  Let’s talk about Timbo Pils.  I love this beer.  It’s a Pilsner so it’s a bit lighter than IPAs.  It’s fresh. At the same time it has hop notes of West Coast IPAs.  It’s simply toned down a bit.  Plenty of flavor, just not in your face.  So fine.
