A Year In Beer: 2014 via Instagram

A Year In Beer

The end of the year calls for a lot of ‘best of’ lists and reflection on the previous twelve months. While considering what kind of content I was going to post on CaskAleLA to commemorate 2014 I went through my instagram feed as a way to remind myself of the year and realized that those photos are simply the best and most honest way to reflect on 2014.

Drinking On A Monday: Prairie Artisan Ales Birra

Drinking on a Monday is a short column where I share that one bottle that I open after the most dreadful of all weekdays. Last week I changed things up a bit with the new Stone Sprocketbier, but I really intended to spend most of the spring focusing on lighter farmhouse ales, particularly saisons. After looking at Denver’s big farmhouse brewery, Crooked Stave, and the new offerings from Socal’s juggernauts Stone and Firestone Walker, I
