A Visit to San Pedro Brewing Company
Last night, I had the opportunity to check out San Pedro Brewing Company. Located in downtown San Pedro, San Pedro Brewing Company is currently the only brewery in San Pedro (although that will change once Brouwerij West opens up) and is a brewpub.
I opted to go for a taster flight to get a sense of their beers (as I am wont to when I go to breweries). The taster flight had six five-ounce pours of beers, five of which were their own brews. I started off with the Bruin Blonde Lager (5% ABV), which was easily drinkable, nice and light, with a light finish. Next up, I had the Port Town Pilsner (5% ABV), which was even more easily drinkable and nice & light. To round out the first half of the flight, I had the Port Town Hefeweizen (5% ABV). As someone who typically does not like hefeweizens, this was good. This was smooth, easily drinkable, and enjoyable.
At this point, I should admit that I had a little bit of a tasting handicap – my sinuses were a little congested, so I wasn’t able to fully detect smells and tastes, but at least I was still able to enjoy the beer 🙂
Next up, I had their Eight-Legged Black Lager (5.4% ABV), which was also enjoyable and easily drinkable. Since they were all out of their own pale ales and IPAs, they served me Three Weavers Session IPA (4.4% ABV), which had an enjoyable piney nose and taste throughout. It was certainly enjoyably sessionable. Finally, I had their Sunken City Imperial Stout (8.3% ABV), which was smooth, dark, and malty (maybe a touch boozy).
In all, it was nice to check out the only brewery in nearby San Pedro (for the time being) and a pleasant place to drink beer 🙂
