We had an amazing time in Anaheim a couple of weekends ago, and no we did not go to Disneyland. We started our day out around 9am and thought it wise to grab some breakfast before we got to the our destination.

So this past weekend I finally had the opportunity to sit down and watch How Beer Saved The World. The movie takes an interesting approach to beer and how it has influenced basically all aspects of history and modern life as we know it.  The movie begins with a University Anthropologist describing the agricultural revolution and how it really began with barely.  Dr. Thomas Shellhammer explains that hunter gatherers stumbled upon a primitive form of fermentation and then, the first “accidental beer” was born.  The movie takes it a step further and says that mathematics came about because of the need to formulate a way to keep track of the amount of beer being made.

33 Bottles of BeerOnce you discover craft beer, you tend to want to explore it further and further but where do you keep tabs on what you have already tried without BierBuzz.com? That’s where 33Beers.com comes in with their “33 Bottles of Beer” journals.  The site references them as a, “A pocket-sized companion and memory aid” which is pretty much what they are.

As we walked into this venue I was struck at how intimate and well set-up the area was, and, as I came to find out later in the night, some of the proceeds were going to charity (Pomona Regional Hospital). I was stoked to find out that my new brewery of choice, Stone Brewery, was going to be present. It was my lucky night because I got to try out that beer I mentioned in my other blog “Bitter Beer Get a Bad Rap,” Double B@stard Ale. This beer is known as an American Strong Ale … A bit too bitter for the man who has come to love these ales, but I leave the choice up to you.

Bier

The Alpine Bier Fest was a darn good time with great beers and great people. Housed in a giant tent that will be used for the upcoming Oktoberfest Beer Extravaganza, we felt wide open and ready to explore. Along the walls, most all of the taps were numbered, and every guest was given a list telling them number, brewer, beer, ABV and style from each tap or table. With over 100 beers to choose from this list was held close like a treasure map.  For the $40 entry you also got a wonderful tasting glass and twenty stubs for the beer. I was much less waiting at each tap, plus, everyone got to pick the brewers brains about their beers. And everyone knows brewers love to talk about their beer! 

We got to try some very unique flavors, such as Stones' “Enjoy By 9/21/12”, this is a mind blowing Double IPA that hits with a hops and a strong citrus that will spin your head. Enjoy indeed.

Beer SaversKeeping your beer fresh is something we all should do, and when it’s as easy as sealing the bottle your drinking out of then it’s definitely a must. This is where the “Beer Savers” comes in, these silicone looking bottle caps form-fit to just about any bottle with a nice tight seal. Keeping the freshness of your beer, soda, or favorite beverage intact.

Bottle Popper

Opening your bottle of beer or soda with a generic bottle opener has been done from almost the beginning of time (well since bottles have been around...).  Some have even used "alternative methods" in opening their bottles (see episode 2 on how to open a bottle with a lighter) but what we have here is quite a neat contraption.
