Beer Hop

We set out on an adventure into the distant and unfamiliar Inland Empire in search for fine craft beer. We drank, we ate and we conquered.

First stop was the Packinghouse Brewing Company. Our unanimous favorite was their Liberty Belgian micro brew. It was smooth, hoppy and strong (alc 9%).

Equally as satisfying was the food truck assembly outside. The unanimous favorite was the Garlic Scape Truck. The Double Grilled Grilled Cheese- jack cheese, grilled onions, cheddar, feta, and garlic scape stuffed inside texas toast and fried with more cheese on the outside...
Garlic Fries- fries tossed in garlic and topped with feta cheese...
Deep fried Oreos topped with powdered sugar...

Our next stop was Inland Empire Brewing Company which was a lot smaller and more intimate. The beers were really yeasty and had a distinct flavor that reminded me of drinking Chinese herbal medicine... It was unexpected and interesting but not really my taste. There are a couple more breweries that we did not make it to, but check out this LA Times article for more info.
