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.

Suburban Brewing Company, Honey Brook, PA

I stopped in at Suburban Brewing Company in Honey Brook, Pennsylvania.  I was pleasantly surprised to find the brewery when I stopped at Jerry’s Pizza Pie for cheesesteak pizza and pepperoni rolls.  Quick shout out to Jerry’s.  Years ago when we had family in the area this was out go to pizza place.  It’s been more than five years since we made it there and so glad we did and what a delicious treat!  So, back to the beer.  Of course I had to try the Willy Scottish Ale – Scottish Export – and I was not disappointed.  It is caramelly and delicious.  It is malty and hoppy in the British sense of hoppy.  Very well done.  I just wish i had brought my growler so I could have brought some home with me.  Also, the arcade there is cool, including the Pac Man mural in the restroom.
