Oysters in CA

Drove out to Hog Island’s oyster farm to escape the Sacramento heat and to gorge myself on delicious sea creatures.


Pretty comparable pricing to my favorite spot in Oregon, Nevor Shellfish!

Drie Fonteinen Oude Geuze 2013 and de Garde’s The Numbers were fantastic pairings!



I dropped into Hood River over the weekend for a friend’s wedding and had some time to kill. I got to visit Pfriem for the first time and walked away very impressed. Their Frambozen is an incredible beer, but for $12 a 375 ml bottle, it’s really expensive.

Nectarine Premiere


de Garde Nectarine Premiere: Incredible! Low tartness, low funk, SO MUCH NECTARINE.

Settling Nothing.

I played Catan, and I sucked.

I think that’s what you call drinking a big beer by yourself? That whole climbing thing without a rope isn’t nearly as interesting or impressive right? Anyways, de Garde Bu Rice is a great beer and still tastes like a diet version of Special Herbs with a bit more acidity.
