I stopped in at Hermitage Brewing Company in San Jose, California. I tasted the Maltopia Scotch Ale and it finished a bit more bitter than I prefer. I also tasted the Single Hop Citra IPA which was delicious. And I ordered a 408 Session IPA that I thoroughly enjoyed. Smooth IPA with just the right bitterness. Not too much alcohol which means you could drink a few of these. Almost smooth. Very Nice!
I stopped in at Hapa’s Brewing Company in San Jose, California, and at the recommendation of the bartender I enjoyed their The Cannery Kolsch. Great choice. This is a fabulous, clean, well-balanced beer. Light maltiness and light bitterness. Very drinkable and enjoyable.
I stopped in at Uproar Brewing Company in San Jose, California. I asked the bartender for a taste of one of their beers and he told me they do not provide tastes. The beer I eventually ordered I did not enjoy. I’ve been to over 500 breweries and this was the first time I’ve not been able to try a beer before ordering it. I did enjoy their pumpkin salad, though.
