This report of a brewpub-based road trip through California is weirdly fascinating --- because it mentions none of the usual suspects. Probably because it involved two guys who are (refreshingly) not part of the whole craft beer scene. Nuthin' like a new slant. Kind of like painting a room a new color and moving two pieces of furniture: Voila! Same room; fresh perspective.
Tip o' the mug to @ellinoz, one of the more delightful humans I've encountered at Twitter.
