It may not be west enough for California , but it's west enough from me,
And it tastes so good I do think I found my official IPA to carry in tow for the Summer 2016 tour.

Back in Philly airport, International Terminal.
Found "Yards" ale, not bad.
Hope to return through here in time for Bob's Philly show....
We will see ...

When in KC, I guess it's a Boulevard, right? Their portfolio reminds me a lot of Allagash with their Belgian-centric beers, and there is nothing wrong with that.

You got it Cod. Still here missing most of the shows.
Recalling the boys dressed in red at the last Istanbul show.

Hoping for Philly…assuming flights connect properly.
It'll be close.

For those there, since Vermont isn't too far away, it may be appropriate to bring in some Shedd Red into the Tanglewood Shed tonight.

Very solid choice, llama. I visited they're brewery a couple months ago, and while there wasn't much seating, the libations were enough to keep me there for quite a while. Still hoping that pipeworks opens up a tap room at their brewery.

^ I'm overdue for a visit there myself
18th street has a new site in Hammond until pipeworks fulfills your pipe dreams!

Finally followed this advice for the last show!

Always a solid choice, Llama! On to Queens, so perhaps a selection from the Schmaltz Brewing Co. is in order...a beer for all persuasions and denominations!

Only Goose Island served at Philly, the rest Bud, etc.
Not bad for 10 bucks, ha!

Better luck in Beantown!

Indio

Hecho en Mexico, and not bad in a pinch, i.e., if no other choices and ice cold!

Don't know if it's any good or not.
Everyone is a brewer these days so investigation is become more & more necessary.
They've been opened almost as long as The Set has been running.

It'll be disappointing if they don't already have a beer entitled The Set, for those who enjoy the same thing over & over again.

Anyone been here?

Coachella Valley Brewing Company (CVBCO) in Thousand Palms opened Fall 2013 as one of Inland Southern California’s newest breweries.

This brewery works on a 17 barrel system, which means 34 kegs each time they brew. They operate on a High Efficient Brewing System or HEBS, which is one of only four in the nation.

The beer is now distributed at LG’s Steakhouse (La Quinta/Palm Springs), Woodie’s Gourmet Burgers in Palm Springs, Hard Rock Hotel in Palm Springs, Schmidy’s Tavern in Palm Desert, the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs and many other locations. We’ve also heard that CVBCO is served at Killarney’s in Riverside as a guest tap.

After checking out a flight of their beers, including two IPAs, we found each of the beers to be well-brewed, balanced and mellow, meaning you won’t find any of the flavors to be too overpowering. From a value standpoint, we’d recommend grabbing a pint over the tasters.

Expect to see big things from this shiny new brewery.

Sun is shining in Phoenix today,
And this place looks too charming to pass up.

http://www.northmountainbrewing.com

One of the few places where I may even fancy starting with a flight,
And finishing with A Mother Load.

8) Octomalt Imperial Red/IPA (ABV-7.4/IBU’s75) This beer, lovingly called “The Mother of All Beers”, is a blend of eight malts and four hops. Featuring a complex malty backbone and solid hop bite, with another layer of hops from late kettle additions.



They have two happy hours a day!
But expect the place to be hungover after their Octoberfest yesterday
(Don't tell them they've missed the season)

Had red on nitro recently, Llama. It was Firestone Walker I think. Goes down easy.

For tonight's show, for the Waning of the Supermoon, and for Autumn.

This one's for all.

Best to sneak it into a chilled pint glass and hide the can away so I don't know.
This "can comeback" is killing me.

Jumping ahead a slight bit to Sunday's show in Paducah,
It seems there are at least two places worth checking out.


This one is close to the show and it will play host to an informal pre-show ER gathering
around 630 pm

http://www.paducahbeerwerks.com

This one is a little farther, but too marvelously situated in the old Coca Cola building to pass up.
Therefore, a more informal, pre-pre show gathering gathering will take place here around 330/4pm,
Depending on how long it takes me to complete my walk at the Garden of the Gods.

http://www.drygroundbrewing.com/beer_type/all-beers/

A BRIEF HISTORY

In 1937 the Ohio River flooded Paducah and Luther Carson’s Coca-Cola bottling plant on South 6th street was submerged. Mr. Carson used an empty syrup keg to float out of the second floor window to reach a rescue boat. On the return trip up Broadway, Mr. Carson said, “If I ever reach DRY GROUND, it is there that I will build my new bottling plant.” Plans for construction began immediately following the flood, and in June of 1939 Mr. Carson celebrated the grand opening of his new state-of-the-art facility located 31 blocks from the river upon the DRY GROUND across the street from the Red Cross evacuation site where he had been off-loaded following his rescue. It’s here, we’ve chosen to open Paducah’s first craft brewery. We have 28 craft beers on tap, including over 10 brewed in house. Visit us if you love great beer, community, history and craftsmanship.

--------------------------------------------------------------------


For those interested, A radically informal hike will take place at Garden of the Gods in the Shawnee National forest around noon on Sunday.


And for anyone in Chicago interested in watching me fill up on gas in the fastest way possible and sprint out of the City at 6am, this will take place on Armitage and the expressway.


------------------------------------
Ahh bubbleparsnips, both establishments closed on Sundays. Meet ups will be revised.
