The North County Times offers a roundup of the local beer scene, with many of our best brewers offering up specials for the short and chilly (by local standards) days of winter.
I have a fascination with fruit beers, as long as they don’t come out tasting more like pop than beer. I had long imagined that persimmons could be used in making a good beer. Now I know it is true. As noted in the article, Back Street Brewery (Ladera Frutal’s closest) has come up with Santa’s Little Fella, which “uses 70 pounds of locally grown persimmons and wildflower honey.” I can’t say for sure that I taste persimmon, specifically. But I sure taste the hops! It is one fine brew, and the hops and the sweeter ingredients certainly provide for a nice balance.
