Sips on the Road: Beer Thirty, Part Two

Make your selection Saints and Sinners
Located in an industrial park in San Marcos, CA Port Brewing and Lost Abbey would literally be lost in the mix of concrete buildings if not for the massive crowd extending from the brewery out to the food truck and the ID checker waiting for the tour buses that roll up to the entrance during the day.   Lost Abbey’s tag line “Inspired Beer for Saints and Sinners alike” only adds to the intrigue of the various brews they keep bottled on site and in stores.  With beer names like Devotion, Inferno and Judgment Day you just might be choosing a side; sinner or saint.

Upcoming Event: 2013 Seattle Wine & Food Experience - 2/24/13 - Seattle Center Exhibition Hall


Much like a fine wine, the Seattle Wine & Food Experience (@SeattleWineFood) gets even better with age. Each vintage of the event gets better every year, as if event producer Jamie Peha (@tabletalkpeha) of Peha Promotions strives to out-do herself year after year. This will be my 4th visit to the SWFE and I am just as excited for this year as I have been for previous years. This year the SWFE will be held on February 24th, 2013 from 12-5pm at the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall (its home for the past several years). The 5th annual SWFE will feature more than 100 wineries from around the globe plus local foods, beer, cider and craft spirits.
