This week we head out to the beach, Newport Beach to be exact, and we hang out with one of the coolest brewers in the Southern California area, Derek Bougie from Newport Beach Brewing Company.
Derek talks about the history, and future of the NBBC while we drink Pelican Pale Ale, a 6.0 ABV, nicely hopped American Style Pale Ale, which we pair with a ton of food off their menu, all of which was amazing. This beer pairs wonderfully with the Ahi.
Derek then gets sent off to see Dr. Bill so he can enjoy a Master Pairings with Dr. Bill straight from the Newport Beach Brewing Company Menu. They do the NBBC ESB with a plate of the Fish & Chips.
We also talk tattoos, since Derek has a some really awesome "beer" tattoos.
