Blue Frog

After a long week in the newsroom, I’m in the mood for a pint or two. We’ve had some hot days in Sacramento. Sipping beer is a nice way to cool down.

A few weeks ago, my hubby and I decided to check out the Blue Frog Grog and Grill in Fairfield.

We first tasted some of Blue Frog brews at BeerFests in Santa Rosa and Boonville. Those festivals also featured beers by Rubicon and the Sacramento Brewing Company.

Out of this sampler, I enjoyed the hearty Red Ale. Plus, the Hefeweizen tasted quite refreshing on a hot night.

Pizza and Beer

Both add up to good times in a college town. That’s especially true for Woodstock Pizza in Davis.

Before that – I want to give folks a heads up about pairing beer with a good cause. This afternoon, Sudwerk’s hosting a Beerfest. It’s a Celebration of All Things Beer. You can taste brews from Northern and Central Cali breweries. There’s also food, live music and the tours of the Sudwerk Brewery. Best of all, the ticket sales go to the non-profit group: “Citizens Who Care.” I’m thinking about going. How about you?

Chilling at Rubicon

Kicking off the weekend with at pint at the Rubicon Brewing Company on Capitol Ave.

It’s a friendly, neighborhood bar where people can enjoy good beer, conversation and the latest ball game. I like watering holes that are crowded and I can still hear what my hubby’s saying.

I tried out the Monkey Knife Fight. To me, this pale ale was heavy on some floral scents and it had a spicy finish.

On Thursday, you can enjoy some tasty brews and food while contributing to a good cause. Rubicon’s holding a fundraiser for Elk Grove Police Officers on April 30.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of beer all day will be donated to the Elk Grove Police Motor Unit to aid in sending officers to Washington D.C. to attend a memorial ceremony in honor of a fellow fallen officer, Deputy Larry Canfield.
