So, this post is a little different from most of my posts, i.e. it's not fashion related in the least bit, but I thought I'd share what I did today because, well... it was pretty freakin' fun! :) It's my mom's birthday on Monday, so I bought us both tickets to the California Beer Festival since it finally came to our town! We got little itty bitty beer glasses and got to go around and try different beers all day, although I was designated driver so I sipped quite cautiously (don't drink and drive kids!)! It was super nice out and my friend and her boyfriend went too, so it was pretty epic :).  Anywhoo, here are my favorite beers from the festival (plus a couple of CA bear shots just for kicks haha!):
*Their Pear Cider is ridiculous! It pretty much tastes like juice, which admittedly is kinda dangerous, but holy moly this stuff is tasty!* 

*Having worked at a Hawaiian food restaurant for a little over 2.5 years, I definitely have had my fair share of Kona beers, but I am for sure a fan. The Longboard is always good, and their Waialua Wheat is perfect for summer... it's made with passion fruit! :) *

         * I first tried a beer from Deschutes because it's brewed in Bend, Oregon, where my one of my best friends and her boyfriend now live, but it's actually really good, especially their Twilight Summer brew.*

Hope you all had a good day too!!! 


  1. oh how fun! i love going to beer fests and getting the itty bitty beer cups! we still our mason jars from the one we went to last year. happy early birthday to your mom!


  2. This sounds fun! I'm not a big beer drinker (or drinker in general), but it is fun to try special beers. A place in my town brews their own "Apricot Wheat Beer." It's DELICIOUS!

  3. sounds like tons of fun :)


I'll try my darnedest to get back to anyone who is kind enough to leave me a message:). Just leave me a way to get back to you (email or blog link)! Thanks!!!
