I stopped in at Southerleigh Fine Food and Brewery in San Antonio, Texas to taste their beers.  I tried a flight and each was very good.  The Dark Sky Dark Lager was rich and malty, the Straight Outta Hopton Imperial IPA was strong and smooth, the 2 Coast IPL – India Pale Lager was hoppy and citrusy just the way I like it, and I think my favorite was the Heyyyy Joe Coffee IPA.  I’ve never had a coffee IPA before and this was a treat.  Notes of both coffee flavor and hops.  Typically coffee is brewed in stouts and porters.  This really switched it up for me and was delicious.  Hope to stop back for one more before leaving San Antonio.  I’d encourage anyone to stop in for this beer alone.  The other beers were delicious as well.  I did not have a chance to try their food but the menu looked awesome as well.

I stopped in at Triple Rock Brewing Company in Berkeley, Califonia and tasted two of their beers.  Red Rock Ale is a combination of malty caramel and bitter hoppiness – very good.  IPAX is a west coast IPA that would satisfy and hop head’s tastebuds – like mine.  Oh, and they offer a great menu but I wasn’t able to grab a meal this time.  It ws a great spot to stop for a beer and looks like a great place to have lunch or dinner as well.
