My favorite brew? You've probably never heard of it...
During my quick trip to California, I made sure to pick up a couple cases of my favorite beer. It is called Red Trolley Ale, and is made by Karl Strauss Brewing. They are a San Diego-based brewer that have a good handful of amazing beers.
Red Trolley, by far, is my favorite. Woodie Gold is amazing, but RTA takes the cake. (and goes well with cake, I might add...)
Sadly, they do not distribute into Idaho just yet. But when they do, I'll be one happy guy. Until then, I'll just have to load up whenever I go down to California to see my boys.
Oh, and if you're reading this, O Fine Brewers at Karl Strauss, hook a brother up. I miss your beer, and once in a blue moon isn't nearly enough... email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you know of a way for me to enjoy this brew more often... *cough*
