Subject: Grapvine Brewery Anniversary

Thanks to all those who responded to my query about breweries and brewpubs to
visit in Northern California and Oregon.

In my own neck of the woods, Grapevine Brewery in Lebec, California will be
having their anniversary celebration on July 29. It should be a lot of fun.
I was just there last weekend and had a chance to sample the Special Lager,
Summerfest Lager, and Extra Special Bitters (there were 3 of us). They were
all very good, but we decided the ESB was the best of the three. There were
also Mild Ale, American Lager, and Stout. I sampled The Mild Ale, but it had
a winey taste and I sent it back. The cause of winey aroma and flavor that I
am familier with is too much oxidation of the beer. They usually have 6
locally brewed beers on tap and they also serve good food. They are located
off Interstate 5 at the Frazier Park exit. The general location is the Tejon
Pass 50 miles North of Los Angeles and 40 miles South of Bakersfield.

See you there!
