I stopped in at Napa Smith Brewery in Napa, California and tasted their beers. My favorite of all was the Bourbon Barrel Aged Hop Java. This coffee ale tasted rich and delicious aged in bourbon barrels. Very nicely done! Worth the stop.
I stopped in at Downtown Joes Brewery & Restaurant in Napa, California for dinner and a beer. I enjoyed blackened cod fish tacos for dinner – very tasty – paired with the Triple Dog Dare Triple IPA. Fortunately I went with a half pour because this beer clocks in at over 13% alcohol. It’s tasty but its strong.
