You Can't Go Home Again

A year ago I stumbled upon the Firestone Walker beer stand at the Ventura County Fair and had my second favorite beer experience of 2008. I went to the Ventura County Fair again last month and sought out the Firestone Walker beer stand. It was in the same place, right along the fair's main thoroughfare, and once again I ordered a Pale 31. Yeah, the beer was good, but I think the surprise of the previous year made that a better beer. This year's beer just did not have the same impact as the reality did not live up to the anticipation. A little serendipity goes a long way in a beer quest.
