Carson. It's a city in Los Angeles. You know it, even though you may not think you do. Cal State Dominguez Hills is here. They've got the Stubhub Center. The Goodyear Blimp sleeps here. And now, they have the first sour beer brewery in Los Angeles - Phantom Carriage.
It's been an amazing year so far in LA beer. We've had more breweries open and beers debut than we all know what to do with. And in fact... there is another brewery opening TODAY: Three Weavers Brewing in Inglewood. We'll be at their opening party tonight, so if you're there, come say hi. So to roll us into the end of the year... here are the local results from the 2014 Great American Beer Festival.
Beer & Cheese share an incredible amount of similarities. They both have flavor profiles like tangy, funky, musty, nutty and earthy. They're both made using historic methods employing microflora to do a lot of the heavy lifting. And most notably, there is a massive gap between what's readily available to the public and "The Good Stuff". On October 5th we're going to take you on a special Food & Beer Hop where we're going to examine exactly what the good stuff is in both cheese and beer and how they can work together to make mind-blowing pairings.
