2011 Homebrew – Year in Review

First up, 2011 was the first year of brewing 100% All Grain homebrew. Every brew may not have come out exactly as I planned, I do have to say every batch came out very drinkable and a few way better than I expected.



  1. Drop of a Dime – DIPA
  2. SMaSH  – Pale Ale Bootlegger’s version. Brewed on their pilot system and served to paying customers.
  3. Brown Eyed Squirrel – Nut Brown Ale
  4. Beliner Weisse
  5. But the Kitchen Sink – IPA
  6. American Wheat
  7. Iron Brewer” Red Cardamom Sweater
  8. Organic Red – Bison Brewing/New Brew Thursday homebrew competition
  9. Some People Call Me Maurice – Bourbon Cherry Chocolate Stout
  10. Ray’s American Wheat
  11. Funkified – Beliner Weisse
  12. Tipsy Melons – Watermelon Wheat
  13. Saison batch #1
  14. Shake Your Tree – Saison batch #2
  15. Yam-Tacu-Ale 2.0 – Belgian Porter
  16. Disorder in the House IPA – Soon to be brewed at Newport Beach Brewing Company.
  17. Scotch Ale
  18. One Tart Blond – Pomegranate Belgian Blond
  19. South of the Porter – Mexican Themed Porter
  20. Newport Beach Pale Ale – Newport Beach Brewing Company homebrew competition


The real highlights of 2011 were all the great people I met, new friends and spending time with some very cool “beer” people.
