On the lighter side Blue Moon is a winner and for those who like it I'd also recommend Lost Coast's Great White. On the more "exotic" and more feminine side Lost Coast also makes a pretty good Tangerine Ale.

Nice! I've had the kiltlifter, good stuff!

well looks like we've got a little party going on next weekend, my buddys workin there now too! let me know if any of you guys want to come goin!

I find myself liking a lot of the Japanese beer (except Asahi), but recently I've come across a new Japanese beer that I like. It's Orion, and it's from Okinawa. To me, it taste like a light beer with a full flavour kick at the end. TRY IT!

After watching commercials on youtube about Orion...I wanna try this one too.

Yeah it's like a meal in and of itself. Went downtown (SJ) last night and kicked it at O'Flarity's. Had a couple pints of the meal-in-a-glass and a Irish carbomb, YUM.

Lunch? Dude, how early do you start? Target has tons of Guinness stuff right now (or at least they did last week).

Including an awesome clock that is reduculously priced at $50

Update on Boulder Creek Brewery--my apologies if this has already been covered--brewing kettle blew up--great brewmaster left--beers alre brewed elsewhere--they are not sure if they will resume brewing--great and ever-changing selection of fine brews no longer the case.

wherever he works now, he has a commute...since he lives in BC, unless he moved.

He reminded me of one of those old timey celtic athletes...like the ones that pick up telephone poles and toss them etc.
