The NCSD Elite squad gathered to tour the finest craft breweries in style! After we carb loaded, we poured ourselves into a party bus of luxe proportions and lifted our pints to cheers this inaugural Elite event!
Player's Sport Bar was the perfect check in point! And what a spread! Breaded mozzarella cheese sticks served with marinara sauce, potato skins topped with melted cheddar cheese, real bacon bits, and green onions served with sour cream, giant veggie tray, thick, meaty chicken wings, tater tots, PLUS a selection of pizza’s featuring their handmade dough, AND MORE!!
Cali Party Bus provided our exclusive Party Bus for the day's transportation. Without them we woulda got nowhere fast! From the personalized service, to the plush ostrich seats-this luxury ride was over the top! Custom lighting, stocked with beer, killer music system, and of course a pole for impromptu dancing (not to mention ceiling rails?!) What a perfect mobile venue! With high style and unmatched attention to detail our home for the day was Impeccable!
Our first stop was Latitude 33 Brewery! Complex flavors, spectacular suds, and customer service down pat, it was a smooth beginning to our trek! Thanks to the team for the hospitable tour and unlimited tastes. The Caroline Honey Hips Blonde and the Vanilla Porter were some of our favs. We have a hunch this new NCSD brewery is about to explode as a new local favorite with a loyal following!
Next up: Aztec Brewery. We were honored to witness a new keg being tapped and we were memorized by the history and tour! We were ushered into the actual brewing room and had the pleasure of tasting their delicious Hibiscus Wheat, the sexy and spicy Chipotle IPA, and filled our glasses with fresh fruit and their Agave Wheat-wowza! It doesn’t get much better than that! All the beer we could drink!
We rolled into The Lost Abbey to a VIP reception. Thanks to Kevin for a smooth transition into the largest tasting room in North County! A wristband with 5 tastes and no menu limitations gave our eclectic palates a free for all. With brew’s like Avant Garde and Inferno Ale, Elite’s were roaming free and straight buzzing! Group hug! Last but not least: Jonathan Bagalso Photography was on hand, snapping pics and instigating shots through each of our stops and on our awesome bus-uh oh! Photographic evidence. Thanks J for grabbing those memories! Check out the full album here!
