Beer shopping is my favorite kind of shopping!

Going shopping is a favorite hobby for many people.  The only kind of shopping I truly enjoy is beer shopping.  Going to new shops to find beers I've never tried is always an adventure!  Today, I traveled a few miles up the road to visit Hacienda Beverages in Brea.  I was happy to see some old favorites along with new beers, well, at least new to me!  Out of the beers I picked up today, I've had four of them; Dogfish Head's My Antonia, Knee Deep Brewing's Citra Extra Pale Ale, Epic Beer's Armageddon IPA, Stone Brewing's Woot Stout, and Dogfish Head's Aprihop.  The new to me bottles of beer I brought home included; Oud Beersel's Oude Geuze Vielle along with Gigantic Brewing's IPA and their Imperial IPA.  Of course I love trying new beers, but I must admit I'm most excited about trying Gigantic Brewing's beer, since I love the Pixies and scored tickets to see them when they are in Los Angeles in the fall.  Have you had any new favorite beers lately?


  1. What did you think of the Gigantic Whole in the Head IIPA? I loved it (but I'm a bit of a Gigantic fan-boy).

    1. I LOVED it and can't wait to drink it again! I wish that it was more easily found here in Southern California.
