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.

Smog City Brewing Company, Los Angeles, Ca

I stopped in at Smog City Brewing Company in Los Angeles, California.  Unable to decide on a specific beer I went with a flight.  Good decision!  Coffee Porter is tasty – coffee – medium dark – smooth – rich.  Kumquat Saison is fruity but not too fruity – slightly tart – easy to drink.  White Peach Saison is tart, sour, delicious. Sabre-Toothed Squirrel hoppy amber is smooth with a bite!  and Smog City IPA is a solid IPA.  Great breadth of beers.  Tap room also has great vibe.
