I guess we can say that fall has officially hit Northern California; despite me kicking, screaming and throwing tantrums over my frozen feet (and nose), I’m absolutely digging this sweater weather!!
And can I admit that I actually missed the rain??
While things are cooling down around here, there are still signs of that horrific firestorm that hit us just one month earlier. I’ve never been through anything like this so it has been pretty amazing to watch how the community has come together to support one another. And Russian River Brewing Co. was no exception.
Russian River Brewing Co. has always been a big deal in the beer world; from my first trip down to the brewery I instantly fell in love. I mean, amazing beer AND killer pizza??When do I move in? Once I heard about Sonoma Pride, I knew I had to get my hands on it!
This Hoppy Blonde Ale strictly benefits the King Ridge Foundation, which means that every beer you buy will help those in need from the fire. How cool is that?! This beer definitely isn’t in my normal realm of beer drinking– something about blonde/pilsner ales?? But this one was pretty drinkable!
As for the typical RRBC, I felt like they left this one a little.. lackluster. I honestly wished there was a bit more dry hop to it to spice things up a little bit, but still digging it nonetheless! And it’s also for a good cause, so how could you go wrong?
And just look– it’s pup approved!
So if you find this beer around, definitely give it a try and donate to The King Ridge Foundation!
