I’ve been covering craft beer for the L.A. Times Daily Dish blog for almost three months now, and I thought I should share some of my favorite posts here in case you missed them. I’ve usually share my posts on the Beer of Tomorrow Twitter and Facebook feeds, but you can also follow The Daily Dish on Twitter or Facebook directly to get all the posts in your feed.
Read on for some highlights from the last ten weeks!
It’s great to have another venue for sharing my love of craft beer, and the Daily Dish reaches a lot of people – many of whom are not yet craft beer devotees. I spend a lot of time covering the basics and espousing just why people should be paying attention to craft beer, and I’m proud of the work I’m doing over there.
Here are a few of my favorite posts, in case you missed them:
- An early primer on some classic hop varieties and the flavors they impart to craft beer.
- LA’s South Bay is blowing up big time, and this post written about the scene in and around Torrance two months ago is already due for an update.
- Shamefully, I never actually wrote about the LA Beer Blogger’s field trip to Firestone Walker for Beer of Tomorrow. I did, however, cover Barrelworks in Buellton for the Daily Dish, and you don’t want to miss this craft beer getaway!
- My list of the best brewed-in-LA IPAs didn’t generate the controversy that I was expecting. Did I list your favorite?
- This post for National Beer Day delves into the history of brewing in Los Angeles, and it is a fascinating subject that you’ll be hearing more about from me.
- Barrel aged beer is becoming extremely popular and much more accessible. Here’s what you need to know.
- Made-in-LA craft beer is finally being served at Dodger Stadium! Here are the details on what’s pouring and where you have to go to get it.
- One of the more popular posts I’ve written for the Daily Dish covers some suggestions for beers that might open the eyes of the non-beer-lovers.
Remember, follow Beer of Tomorrow or the Daily Dish to ensure that you’re not missing anything!
And thanks to my wife and partner Julie, without whom I’d have no pictures to file with my stories!
