did not know they were up in 4s ranch area. carslbad and sorrento valley and downtown were the old locales. my riding is waay down the last half of this year so my “groundtruthing” and beer rides have been severely curtailed. boo-hoo.

I never had trouble. Maybe you need a softer, more pliable cork that grips better ?

Maybe they can just plead ignorance. They don't "KNOW" of any other...blah blah....(wink wink)

three weavers brewing kölsch-style ale from inglewood, ca… “home of the fabulous forum” and randy’s donuts. 4.8% abv. 12oz can. 9.1 can. 9.2 draft. super-crushable on a hot day.

the beer that broke the bank in monte carlo. alesmith .394 pale ale. less malty and juicier that nearly every pale ale. a junior/training ipa if you will. 6.0% abv. originally slated to be a baseball seasonally-focused beer but it took off and is paying the bills so available all year round. can 9.2. bottle 9.3. draft 9.3. solid and crushable-to a point. inspired/collaborated by/with padre hall of famer tony gwynn. single-handedly destroyed the pale ale competition in san diego county.

Enjoyed many great beers over the holidays including many from the san diego breweries. The Stone Woot Stouts were part of my celebrations.

they are both 5 star beers. the cans explicitly say to drink straight from a can but they are both so beautiful poured into a proper glass.
