Beer Birthday: Chuck Silva

green-flash
Today is also the birthday of Chuck Silva, brewmaster at Green Flash Brewing in San Diego. His West Coast IPA has taken the world by storm, and personally, I love his Tripel and Le Freak. The big, shiny new brewery they recently built is also pretty amazing. Join me in wishing Chuck a very happy birthday.

    If you’re in San Diego, Green Flash is a “must go to”! It’s on Mira Mesa Blvd, closer to I-(80)5 than I-15 – ample parking behind it. Tastes are very reasonably priced, & you can select your size (4/8/16-oz for 7% ABV; 4/8 for the bigger stuff; prices are $1/2/4 for the lighter brews; $2/4 for the bigger beers). Plus, bottled beer to go is as cheap/cheaper than what you’d pay in a retail store. Went there last summer; will be returning when I’m down that way in July (I live in SF Bay area).

    May Chuck have many more hoppy birthdays!
