Back from California

I just got back last night from a week in California. The stated purpose of the trip was to attend my cousin Kelly's wedding to XM Radio personality Matt the Cat near Big Sur. While a tasty keg of Newcastle Brown was consumed at the wedding, there was also time for some coastal brewery visitations:

Monterey Coast Brewing, Salinas

English Ales Brewery, Marina

Peter B's Brewpub, Monterey

El Toro Brewpub, Morgan Hill

Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing, Santa Cruz

Boulder Creek Brewery & Cafe, Boulder Creek

Gordon Biersch Brewing, San Jose

The trip map is already posted. Notes and pictures will magically appear when as I get my typing caught up.

Today's tasks at the brewery simply involved filling kegs. They ran the Oktoberfest kegs dry while I was gone, and nobody here knows how to fill them.

Tomorrow: clean fermenters.
