Living near Hamilton’s is a blessing (even though I haven’t checked in Untappd yet). There are plenty of beers, with a great variety. Just like Hamilton’s, Monkey Paw has a wonderful selection and a mellow atmosphere.
One night on my way home from work a co-worker giving me a lift suggested Monkey Paw. of course I was all in with that idea. Oddly enough we ran into a second co- worker grabbing brews with his roommates.
I had only two beers while at Monkey Paw and only rating/registering one of them on Untapped. as I stated in may posts prior I don’t like my phone to be the center of attention so I try to stay off of it. The first beer I had was
Hop Sour Mandarina – By Almanac Beer Co. an American Wild Ale at 7.00% ABV I gave it 4.25 stars on Untappd. as I get the bill back I was astounded 10 bucks for a glass of sour, I thought hopefully the taste is worth it. With my rating and feeling on Untappd I did like it. Over all my opinion it is a really great sour yet expensive as balls! good for a taste but not a multi drinker, nor an all night drinker. The second beer was a Monkey Paw original.
Meaty Beety Big and Bouncy – By Monkey Paw Brewing Company – an Imperial IPA/ American Double with an ABV of 9.00%. It was an odd red, yet tasty. I liked it a lot but did not record it.
While drinking I met my co-worker’s roommate who works at the Liverpool Bar, Princess Pub and informed her I would be in for the Liverpool game the following day. She didn’t believe me, which leads into my next post.
coming up there will be a lot. Ideas, journeys and logo stay tuned.
Font needs to be addressed, on the draft screen I like how it looks but when it gets published it looks squashed (fixed).
That is besides the point Monday I was a little hung over from Sunday, we stopped beers at coin-op and preceded to wine and shots through out the rest of the night.
First stop Draft in Mission Beach. Made a flight out of 9oz tasters. The picture is courtesy of my instgram account. Four beers were had, I did not record these on my Untappd profile but they are above in picture as well as listed below.
Beer 1- Saint Archer Blonde Ale brought to you by Saint Archer Brewing Company from San Diego California. Kölsche style beer with an alcohol content of 4.8%.
Beer 2- The Apprentice by Societe Brewing Company also from San Diego California, It is a American IPA in style with an alcohol content of 7.6%.
Beer 3- Freshsqueezed made by Deschutes Brewery from Bend, Oregon. Another American IPA but darker than The Apprentice, with an alcohol content of 6.4%
Beer 4- Campfire Stout from High Water Brewing out of Chico California. The Style is an American Stout, and it has an alcohol content of 6.5%.
After draft it was a nice walk to the next stop. Pacific Beach Shore Club, where we got two 20oz Goblets of Beer.
Beer 1- Newcastle from Heineken Nederland B.V. out of the Netherlands. It is an English Brown Ale with an Alcohol content of 4.7%. I stated it was in a goblet which is true, a giant plastic goblet and I couldn’t really tell much details from them. But it tasted as a Newcastle would, not bad at all.
Beer 2- West Coast IPA (2015) from Green Flash Brewing Company out of San Diego, Ca. It is an American Double, or Imperial IPA with an ABV of 8.10%. Tasty on a beautiful day in San Diego.
I have a few ideas for this beerblog that I would like to take public. I don’t know how other beer blogs work, nor what I can differ from them but this is my journey of beer. Hopefully I will be able to expand this idea and dream and make it a reality.
So about me. I have no Idea how to work word press right now so major adjustments will be made. Youtube, you and those who do tutorials on, are god. So there are a few sites, Instagram handles, twitter accounts, and youtube channels that I visit regularly and would like to express gratitude towards them, I don’t how to link them yet remember this is a test run. So there is my idea so far. If any one out there has some suggestions or what not I would like to take the criticism, and use it to my advantage.
So there. First post under my belt.
