I don’t know what it is about Mendocino, CA but beer is taken extremely seriously there. Tonight, I’m enjoying Anderson Valley Brewing Company Hop Ottin’ IPA. This vulgarly hopped ( and I love it ) India Pale Ale carries 7% alcohol and powerful flavor. It’s the closest thing I can think of to striking gold in the California hills. All of the Anderson Valley beers are spectacular, but Hop Ottin’ IPA has a special place in my heart for its obnoxious tone and unrelenting hops.
