I’ve had a number of people ask me about American Craft Beer Week in SLO that took place May 10th – 18th. First off, let me say, I looked forward to this week for the last year. I had such a great time last year, I had planned to hit every event. Read about some of my favorite beers of the week.
21 December 2012 - Telegraph Brewing Stock Porter
The Stock Porter came in a 750ml bottle with a champaign style cork. It poured dark with no head. I thought it was a very light tasting porter with toasted malt upfront, and a short, smooth finish. Smell of good hops with a very slight chocolate undertone.

Day 29 Joseph Brau Dunkelweizen (Trader Joes) Not as dark as expected. Notes of banana with a light maltiness. Could use more carbonation. Pretty easy to drink, but nothing special.

Day 28 @StoneBrewingCo Russian Imperial Stout. Pours thick and dark. Chocolate is prevalent with coffee undertones. Alcohol is present but mild. Even better as it warms up.
