brief tasting notes on my recent LA work trip

Bottle Logic - good stouts although probably couldn't drink more than 3 oz of any of them - ok mostly west coast ipas and a nice helles lager - staff were super friendly

Green Cheek - decent NEIPAs of their own + Pliny on tap

Highland Park - I really like the space and the vibe but the beers are just ok

Homage Brewing - this is their second location and about a 1 minute walk from Highland Park - I had an amazing blended barrel aged saison and an ok table beer

Mumford - I was here about 3 years ago and loved it but did not like anything on offer there this time around

I'm sure they'll be available here and there but why would there be a large resale market? Anyone buying tickets to that outdoor event probably has very little covid concerns.

Wow you're tough. Of those, we only hit GC and HP. I liked the neipas at GC better than you  did. Agree on HP.

BL and Homage were closed on the days we were in their neighborhood. Wasn't interested in Mumford.

Why is this in the beer thread you say...the quote is actually by Samuel Adams, who owned a tavern in Boston, not john adams our 2nd president

Oh yeah this person didn't graduate high school, but has a vote in congress

Isn't it about twice the price as Snallygaster, with a third as many breweries and no DC backdrop? But you do get sunglasses.

Anybody heard of Implexum? Wild ales made in Maryland. Initial untappd scores look strong. Not sure how many 26 oz bottles of wild ale I need. 12oz bottles are better, even when I'm splitting.

I would go to that, if I lived nearby. They really need to include sunglasses though.

Apparently they are a collaboration between some folks at Jailbreak (not a fan) and Evil Twin (they're ok, I guess.) Hence the Laurel (Jailbreak) location.
