"Drinking beer promotes freedom of speech"
Moment of Silence Please...
This month we have the
unfortunate duty of being the bearer of some horribly bad
news. Brace yourself ~ A
few of our favorite bottled beers will no longer be available
to anyone, anywhere, ever again...
Palm Springs Brewing
Co. is now Palm Springs Bottling Co. It seems that they
have acquired some very lucrative soda contracts and are now
only making gourmet sodas. Say good-bye to Red Feather Ale
and Desert Mist.
SLO Brewing Co.
is discontinuing bottling of their Cole Porter and Old Highland
ales. These darker beers were not moving as fast as their
lighter beers and succumbed to the pressures of the mass (light
beer) drinkers everywhere. These wonderful dark gems will
be replaced with a wheat beer. Bummer.
do feel your pain, but we can do this together. We can handle
this crisis. We can accept this unfortunate turn of events
and go on with our lives in peace.
news is, there is a small, but fresh supply of the last batches
of these beers ever to be bottled and they are available ONLY
at Beer On The Wall!
All of these
beers are definitely superb brews and we will surely miss
them. You would be doing yourself a favor by making sure you
get one last taste of them before they're all gone!

After that horrible news, here's a little something to cheer you

Bunch of the Month Club
- Sudwerk Hubsch Privatbrauerei
The Sudwerk Hubsch Brewing
Company has two locations in the Sacramento area; one in Davis and
the other next to the Sacramento State Fair Grounds. Both locations
have great brewpubs & restaurants which we will tell you about in
upcoming newsletters as we feature some of their other tasty brews.
Having been around for over
10 years now, their philosophy on brewing appears to work well -
Make great Bavarian style beers just like those in Germany and don't
do any skimping along the way. They strictly adhere to the Reinheitsgebot
German Purity Law of 1516 which states that only water, hops, malt
and yeast may be used in the brewing process, and that all brewing
must be done wearing lederhosen & a funny hat.
All their beers are Lagers,
which is almost unheard of for an American microbrewery, but very
common in Europe and around the globe.
Pilsner - A very good
example of what a true German pilsner may taste like. It is hauntingly
similar to one of my favorite German beers 'Bischoff Pils.' A crisp
and clean mouth feel with a fragrant hop aroma and exactly carbonated.
This award winning beer compliments fish or pasta nicely.
Amber Ale - Lagunitas Brewing Company
These guys have been around
desde 1993 and have consistently been making some really good beers
since the beginning of their existence. Located in wonderful Petaluma,
California, this area is known for its abundant wineries and a few
really good breweries - this being one of them.
Company bottles 5 beers: Dogtown Pale Ale, Tocaloma Amber Ale (which
happens to be a kick ass amber ale), Bugtown Stout, Pils Czech Style
Pilsner and an IPA (India Pale Ale). Most of their beers are available
at select locations in the northern California only. Beer On The
Wall will soon carry the whole friggin' line of these beers so keep
an eye out for this exciting event!
Not only will we carry the
full line of beers, but we will soon be featuring them so you can
get a taste before you commit to actually buying them for yourself!
Tocaloma Amber Ale "Wow,
that's a good beer." is what came out of my mouth after the first
taste. Many, many, many tastes later. same outcome. Great beer!
It's a fantastic mix of hoppiness and maltiness that, for some reason
tastes a little different to everyone. I recently had an exciting
discovery to share - Lagunitas Amber Ale goes absolutely hand in
hand with Cheetos!
Porter - SLO Brewing Company
This is the
last opportunity you may ever have to sample this beer! So, if you
have been fortunate enough to have tried it before, enjoy it one
last time. If you have never had the pleasure, close your eyes and
savor the one and only.
We are sad to announce that
SLO Brewing Company will no longer be bottling this outstanding
porter. They are also discontinuing bottling of their Old Highland
Ale, which we featured as one of our March beers. We can't tell
you how bummed we are that these two beers are not going to be available
While talking with the Jim
Crooks, the breweries microbiologist, we were told that these outstanding
beers will still be available at their brewpub in San Luis Obispo.
According to Jim, there is a bunch heavy duty mourning going on
at the brewery due to their recent loss.
Check out our March, July and
August 2000 newsletters for more information about the SLO Brewing
Cole Porter - Dark,
tall, and beautiful. Candy in a bottle. Dangerously addicting. Chewy
malt inside surrounded by chocolaty espresso outside, and sprinkled
with a generous handful of fresh hops to give this beer the goodness
we all learned to love and long for. Vaya con Dios Amigo...
