Societe Brewing Company - The Bachelor


I had an opportunity to hit up Societe Brewing Company after work last night. It's been about a year and half years since I had last visited, and I can't tell you why it's been so long. From what I remembered - they had some great IPA's and Belgian's on tap, and that hasn't changed (they are now featured under the Out West (IPA) and Old World (Belgians) distinctions).

Something new they had on tap was The Bachelor, a series of single hop ales each using the same malt, yeast, and hopping schedule, but featuring a different single hop (all coming in at 6.5%). This is a great way to really taste the different hop profiles on an even playing field since all factors of the beer remain constant aside from the hop used. I had the Amarillo, Citra, and Mosaic versions of the Bachelor, and for me at least, the Mosaic Bachelor took the cake. It's something about those Mosaic hops that get me every time! Next time you are in San Diego, be sure to give Societe a whirl.

Lawless Denim


My buddy sent me a link today for a Kickstarter campaign for Lawless Denim, a company based out of Phoenix Arizona pumping out quality, hand-made denim right here in the US. I was initially scared off by the low price point ($79 support can get you a pair of raw, selvage denim) - but after looking at the options available, including but not limited to the renowned Cone Mills out of North Carolina, in addition to various mills from Japan including Kuroki and Kaihara Mills, the quality looks to be there. Further, Lawless offers a lifetime guarantee on its products, and allows further customization (you select fit, button finish, stitch, and thread color) - this is something to look in to. Support the campaign here.

SAMS Wetsuit






Well, this is timely. On the same day that there was a shark attack at my local beach (7-foot Great White off of Manhattan Beach Pier, read all about it here), I stumble on this wetsuit featuring SAMS technology (Shark Attack Mitigation System). They actually have produced two different versions, depending on where you are in the sea. The suit pictured above is for surfers, bodyboarders, and swimmers, and mimics the print of the striped pilotfish. There is also a deep sea version meant for divers that is more camo based and prey's on the sharks lack of color differentiation and depth perception. Check out more from SAMS technology, and be safe out there!

Chicken Charlie


Life may never be the same. Today, I had the chance to check out the infamous Chicken Charlie at the San Diego County Fair. Aside from the classic (deep fried Oreo's) - I had to try his latest creation, the Triple Cheeseburger with Krispy Kreme donuts serving as a bun. How was it? Savory, sweet, and over the top....just what I was looking for.

Kendrick Lamar - I'm Kurupted



I don't keep my ear as close to the street as I used to, and I'll be the first to admit it. That being said, I'm absolutely dumbfounded as to how Kendrick's ode to West Coast Legend and OSTT fav, Kurupt, is just now getting on my radar. This was recorded in 2009?! Kendrick does his thing in classic Kurupt style, and couldn't have nailed it in a better fashion.

Listen to the track here, and read along with the the lyrics here. Artwork above by Colleen Trillow.
