That reminds me, I got some Newcastle in the fridge... yum
See my previous post about 2 pages back.... This bad boy is sitting in my fridge right now right next to the Heinekin Mini.... Doesn't get much better than that.... Everytime i open my fridge, its like christmas... I get teary eyed just thinking about these little bastards!
I dont know if they carry any of this back east, but this is a local micro-brewer (Karl Strauss). They make sick beer.
I added this to my bar yesterday. They are coming tuesday to put the new handle on and clean the lines....
My Karl Rep knows that I am a surfer, so she knew I was gonna pick this one up... Read the description... Its a "surf beer" for the Full Westuit Winter season... Makes you want to surf, then enjoy one of these...
Here is the Promo ad that they run:
Fullsuit is brewed with the changing seasons in mind. Firm toasted malt and roasted nut flavors are underpinned by a hint of vanilla that comes from aging the beer on French oak. Belgian ale yeast adds a peppery, fruity character to the beer’s slightly dry and warming finish, making it perfect for the (kind of) cold Southern California winter.
A quality session this time of year calls for a Fullsuit. The frigid North Pacific Current rolls in, generating first-class swells and mild hypothermia. While a few brave souls zip up and paddle out with no hesitation, most of us stay on dry land and salute their commitment with a winter warmer of a different kind.

I carried this beer last winter and it sold like hot cakes... You give people a view of the LJ cove and one of these, they will post up for hours... It is SOOOOOO good.
