New Bohemia Brewing Company

DSC03790

New Bohemia Brewing Company takes inspiration from Prague, the Bohemian beer making capital of old. Today’s Czech Republicans still down more beer per capita than any other (cheers!).

Brewmaster Dan Satterthwaite and NUBO partner Mike Hochleutner build on traditional European brewing methods with a wide range of deliciously fresh craft beer, all brewed on site in a sweet 3.5 barrel PDX Kettlewords system – she’s a beauty! NUBO Brewing is worth a trip to sunny Santa Cruz, California any day in our beer book. Check them out!

Sante Adairius Rustic Ales

DSC03758

Sante Adairius Rustic Ales was founded by Adair Paterno and Tim Clifford in Capitola, California, along the coast of Monterey Bay just south of Santa Cruz. It’s gorgeous here all year round! Home to 70 wineries, Santa Cruz also serves as a hub for beer making (and beer drinking!). This is our third visit to Sante Adairius Rustic Ales. Can you tell we’re fans?!

Paterno and Clifford describe SARA as “an expression of our many years of beergeekery, the rabbit hole of tasting every beer we could get our hands on, and trusting we could contribute to the canon of those beers on the highest esteem.” We’ll drink to that! CHEERS!

Beer flight on deck = Anais Saison, Simpleton IPA (brewed with Simcoe and Galaxy hops) and of course the Vanilla Joe (brewed with Verve Coffee and vanilla beans)!
