We did our first test run last night and it went off without a hitch! We took a private group of friends and family to Monkish Brewing, The Strand Brewing, and Beachwood BBQ and Brewery and each placed served up a whole bunch of beer tasters and beer talk.

Today we have stories on fried chicken, LA Liquor stores, Steve Nash’s personal diet, an alternate all-pizza diet, and a comparison of religion and beer.

After publicly denouncing Angeleno’s obsession with finding the “best” things in Los Angeles, Besha Rodell, lead critic of LA Weekly, has listed the 10 Best Liquor stores in LA. Now, these are not the best beer stores, so don’t get your hopes up. I’m compiling a list slowly and as of now, my top three are Sunset Beer Co in Echo Park, Cap-n-Cork in Los Feliz, and Select Beer Store in Redondo Beach. Comment below if you know of any other great beer markets.
