Beer-A-Day - Day 399 - Dogtown Duck IPA by Venice Duck Brewery

Dogtown Duck IPA by Venice Duck Brewery of Venice, CA. When there's a local option, have to go local. And since I made it to the airport earlier than I expected, and had time to kill without lounge access since it was a domestic flight, I popped in to Rock & Brews to try one of their local offerings. The server described this to me as a "malt-covered pinecone." Indeed, it's a very hoppy, green West Coast IPA.

Beer-A-Day - Day 398 - Beachwood BBQ and Brewery

A tasting flight with lunch at Beachwood BBQ and Brewery in Long Beach. Beachwood was just voted Best (Beer) Restaurant in California in this year's#ratebeerbest awards, so I had to pay a visit when I was around the corner for my Global Entry and APEC business traveler interview (Officially already approved today! Woo Hoo!) here I tried the Laurel IPA, FV9 Double IPA, Hops of Fury Triple IPA, and Beer Camp Across America Pilot Batch Stout collaboration. Excellent beers, and a very good pulled pork sandwich as well.

Beer-A-Day - Day 397 - Angel City IPA by Angel City Brewery

Angel City IPA by Angel City Brewery of Los Angeles. 6.1% ABV. An OK IPA from an LA Brewery. Malty and a little bitter. A bit wheaty. Not my favorite style of IPA, but they had it for sale here at the hotel after a long day driving back down to LA from Santa Rosa.

Beer-A-Day - Day 396 - Mornin' Delight by Toppling Goliath Brewing

Mornin' Delight by Toppling Goliath Brewing of Decorah, IA. Pitch black color with a slight dark brown ring of head. Coffee aroma. Coffee and chocolate abound on the flavors. Slight anise notes. Wonderful! After trying a sip of SR-71 the previous night, and then starting off with this at the festival, it's very apparent why Toppling Goliath is named as one of the best breweries in the world.

Beer-A-Day Challenge - Day 395 - Black Gold by Central Waters Brewing Company

Black Gold by Central Waters Brewing Company of Amherst, WI. 11% ABV Imperial Stout. I had so many different beers at the share, but this one was at the top of the pack (after the Toppling Goliath SR-71, but I only had a tiny sip of that one. Black Gold was impressive. Oh my lord. Great aroma. Oak and vanilla. Dark dark flavors. Some dark black cherry noted. Hints of anise. If this wasn't a bottle share, I'd have gone for a second pour!

Just received my friendly neighborhood Easter greeting from the US State Department:

The State Department alerts U.S. citizens to potential risks of travel to and throughout Europe following several terrorist attacks, including the March 22 attacks in Brussels claimed by ISIL. Terrorist groups continue to plan near-term attacks throughout Europe, targeting sporting events, tourist sites, restaurants, and transportation. This Travel Alert expires on June 20, 2016.

U.S. citizens should exercise vigilance when in public places or using mass transportation. Be aware of immediate surroundings and avoid crowded places. Exercise particular caution during religious holidays and at large festivals and events.

U. S. citizens should also:

- Follow the instructions of local authorities, especially in an emergency.
- Monitor media and local information sources and factor updated information into personal travel plans and activities.
- Be prepared for additional security screening and unexpected disruptions.
- Stay in touch with your family members and ensure they know how to reach you in the event of an emergency.
- Register in our Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP).

European governments continue to guard against terrorist attacks and conduct raids to disrupt plots. We work closely with our allies and will continue to share information with our European partners that will help identify and counter terrorist threats.

For the latest security information, U.S. citizens traveling abroad should regularly monitor the Department of State’s Internet website where the Worldwide Caution, Travel Warnings, and Travel Alerts can be found. Follow us on the Bureau of Consular Affairs page on Facebook, and download our free Smart Traveler App, available through iTunes or Google Play to have travel information at your fingertips.

All U.S. citizens are urged to enroll online at the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) via the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program website.
