The Brew: West Coast Double IPA from Common Space Brewery. A smooth, expertly-hopped 8.5% abv offering that nicely complemented the giant plate of baked ziti from Vito’s Pizza in Santa Monica, CA.
The Buzz: Remember when Thanksgiving Eve was a booze-filled mess with friends (or are those memory brain cells long gone)? Now, I’m starting a new, mature (aka old man) tradition of finding a new brew & chilling with my favorite people. And this year, just enjoying my DIPA and Pizza as great tunes spin on the vinyl behind the bar at Vito’s. Props to anyone who can identify the albums displayed in the background. Happy Thanksgiving, all!
