Yeah I made sure the 'drink from can' notice was visible next to the pour. I usually share with wife, I get the pour, she the can. As they are readily available at grocery stores in VT every time I visit I pick up a 4-pack or more.

I really like it. The blueberry is strong, thick and astringent as it should be with a nice honey background. It is pricey, but less so than their proper meads.

they do two drops a year here in socal so it can be found at some of the better beer bars/retail outlets for a week or so. a little pricey but definitely worth it.

that dragoon ipa is prob my fave "west coast style" ipa. phenomenal on tap or in the can.

Since you're "super" local, make your way to Blue Spruce Brewery on County Line and Colorado (easy diversion from the C470 trail at Colorado). They have a Belgian that is sublime: https://www.bluesprucebrewing.com/bl...e/beer-on-tap/

KiidK'yaas Belgian Strong:https://untappd.com/b/blue-spruce-br...strong/1610380
Blue Spruce also has a seasonal Maibock that I loved. Wish they would make it again/more often.

Also, Prost just opened a biergarten near Broadway and C470. Love almost all of their brews. My all time favorite though would be Odell's 90 Shilling.

current "great eight" san diego county breweries (imho) in no particular order:

alesmith, pure project, eppig, pizza port, societe, alpine, modern times and fall

just on the outside looking in (in no particular order): burgeon, stone, thorn, harland and the hop concept/lost abbey.

extra credit/bonus points to eppig and fall for having tasty lagers from day one as well.

extra extra bonus points to eppig for having the best tasting room in sd county (altho those stone properties are swanky).

seems like it was bi-annual, (16oz) can-drop time in san diego. just my luck for once or thrice. pricey but def worth it.
alchemist brewing from vt and the heady topper iipa. 5/5
or 95/100 or a+. your choice.

Great pix
lost abbey has the best stouts IMO and Stone (both 76/15 area) most impressive indoor/outdoor facility, the stone garden is spectacular

btw, stone vs port brewing/lost abbey shows the extremes for breweries, ie warehouse bar vs fancy large indoor/outdoor facility

Also they had these like homemade otter-pops, canteloupe (?) flavored, so delicious and refreshing!

Picked this one from the 'cellar' tonight.


I couldn't tell you if it is any different from fresh since I haven't had a fresh one since 2006 either, but it tastes great and smooth. (Still working on it...)

Stouts have a habit of aging well. IPAs, on the other hand, should be enjoyed fresh.
