Episode 12: California Craft Beer Summit

Mother Earth Brew Co “Sin Tax” Peanut Butter
VERY GOOD. Best peanut butter stout tried to date, and it’s not even close. A little aftertaste, but not bad. Deliciously surprising and surprisingly delicious.
Barley Forge “Patsy” Coconut/Rye
GOOD: Two negatives do make a positive. Little bitter, but far exceeding the expectations of someone who likes neither Rye nor coconut
Coronado Brewing Co “Early Bird” coffee milk
