orange grove ale

pasadena's craftsman brewing company is small but has a lot going for it - like their orange grove ale which is brewed using real oranges from owner/brewer mark's backyard tree. of course the name is a nod to pasadena's craftsman architecture, which was the subject of several blogs last week.

yesterday and today's pictures are from a visit i took to the brewery last week to get some pictures for an upcoming article i'm writing for the upcoming eateries handbook (check out their website!). you all did a wonderful job guessing at yesterday's picture, but no one figured out that it was the brew kettle at craftsman brewing.

if you are interested, head to barney's beanery or lucky baldwin's to sample a pint from pasadena's local craft brewer.

oragne grove is the best beer on earth. i believe there are a few bars on downtown LA that carry craftsman.

Ya, it rocks! I'm glad you can find it outside of Pasadena. Apparently they distribute as far south as San Diego, and as far north as Santa Barbara.

Orange Grove is my all time favorite beer. I thought they stopped making it. I haven't had one in two years!

I'm walking down to Lucky's right now!
