Tasting Room Tips
I've been trying to catch up on work, which is why the posts have been light. I have several posts in process, including a review of Stone's 15th Anniversary beer and praise for Manzanita Brewing's tasting room and staff. Here is a link to Brandon Hernandez's guide to local craft beer tasting rooms and some commonsense courtesies. I love the new word "herbaceousness." The post provides a good list of local beer tasting rooms, but Stone's two locations (Escondido and South Park) and Alpine Brewing were not on the list. Most tasting room hours vary, so it's best to verify open times before visiting. I have made this mistake more than once, arriving at closed brewery only having to turn around and leave with empty growler in tow.
