Lone Oak Farm Brewing Company, Olney, MD

Had a great time with my family in one of the rental tents. Nice and warm on a chilly January day. I enjoyed a flight and all of the beers were tasty. Their Hazy IPA’s are good. Flip Coast IPA is also good. General Sherman Double IPA is strong and tasty. Kodiak is sweet and delicious. the beers paired well with snacks we brought. And Kodiak went well with chocolates.

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.
