Hi!!! Welcome back for another blog post. On August 4th I went to go visit my grandparents. I love spending time with them. They live in Ceres. On the way back to Sacramento I decided I would go check out River Rock Brewing.
They kept popping up in my feed and they are always liking my pics (thank you!!).
I have been to Galt a few times to go the flea market. As I got off the freeway I could already sense that small town feel. I pulled into the parking lot and walked right in. I was warmly greeted by Chris. I haven’t ordered a flight in a while, it was in fact for beer research. They were three other gentlemen sitting at the counter. I wandered around a bit while my flight is being poured. The brewery gave me this general store vibe. They sell home brew stuff, and on their website it says “10% Off of all home brew supplies when you mention our under construction website….. “.
They have a pool table and various chairs to sit in .
I had already eaten dinner but I wanted something to snack on. If you have read my blogs before you know where this is going.
They had some bacon jerky. Yes bacon jerky. I got the honey pepper flavor and Chris was kind enough to give me some pretzels too.
Let’s talk beer. My flight had 4 beers:
- Long Way Down Amber 8.9% ABV, This is a Red Ale. It is malty, a little sweet and full of great flavor.
- Po’ Boy Creme Ale 5.5% ABV. This is a cream ale and it is a nice light beer. It is a mellow drinkable beer.
- Haze Over the Horizon NE II IPA 7.4% ABV. This is an Imperial Double. Good flavor, hoppy. This is a nice hazy beer.
- Mei Wah’na Big Pear II IPA 7.8%. This is an Imperial Double. This beer is hoppy but sweet. It is different. I cannot compare it to anything I have drank before.
I had a good time snacking away and drinking my beers. One of the men at the counter was a priest and the other two were friends. I kept trying to think of that joke ” A Priest, a Rabbi and a Minister walk into a bar”. Chatted a bit with the guys, the priest had already left.
I got to meet Ed the owner and his wife. Really nice. Overall I had a great time. I enjoyed all their beers very much.
I definitely have to come out for Taco Tuesday. If you are curious about it check them out on IG @Riverrockbrewery
