American Craft Beer Week: Hermosa Beach

Saturday was day six of American Craft Beer Week (ACBW), and we actually found a gastropub and a brewpub we were unfamiliar with; and in the process were able to come up with 19 American craft brews that we had not tried yet. That in of itself is a pretty noteworthy accomplishment. For day six we visited The Rockefeller and Abigaile, both located in Hermosa Beach, within a couple blocks of each other.

The Rockefeller is a gastropub; meaning they serve food and upscale beers brewed by others. I had called ahead of time to see if they offered beer flights and the manager, Colleen, assured me they did. When I arrived I discovered that they offer a wide array of draught beers, both domestic and foreign. They do not have flights made up; you create your own. Since they do not offer four different dark American craft beers, I had my work cut out for me trying to create a flight Tanya would like. Since Tanya’s palate has evolved over the past week, I just avoided the hoppy brews and came up with Jamaican Red Ale, Bayhawk Chocolate, Mission Blonde and Boont Amber. She liked them all, with the Jamaican Red being her favorite. I started off with a flight of Sofie, Allagash White, Green Flash IPA and Palate Wrecker. Since the brews were all delicious we decided to stay for some food and I created a second flight, with Colleen’s assistance. The flight consisted of Victory Prima, Helles, Bootleggers and Islander IPA. I honestly could not tell you which was best; I would not have a problem ordering any of them. Continue reading

Surfing at the Hermosa Pier

I was at the Hermosa Beach pier for the GI Joe Pier-to-Pier Run/Walk this morning. Once the runners and walkers headed off towards the Manhattan Beach pier I decided to walk down to the shore and check out the morning surf. The surf was pretty decent sized and it looked like the surfers were enjoying themselves. The overcast skies and slight wind made for some great contrasts. I will have to go through and edit some of these and make a video with them.

GI Joe Pier-to-Pier Run/Walk

This morning I headed out to Hermosa Beach to take photos of the 3rd Annual GI Joe Pier-to-Pier Run/Walk. Participants run or walk from the Hermosa Beach pier to the Manhattan Beach pier and back again. From what I gather, this run started off as the graduation ceremony for the GI Joe Bootcamp which operates out of Manhattan Beach. Eventually the City of Hermosa Beach asked Joe to make it a community event. It was a bit chilly this morning, so that may explain the low turnout, but the participants all seemed to enjoy the run along the shore.
