  1. Wife and I just moved here from San Diego on the 31st. Got suuuppeerrrrr excited to have Alpine Duet on draft at yard house (despite Greenflash brewing). Bartenders there hadn’t heard of it as of the 2Aug. They didn’t have the Coronado anni beer either. Any ideas when these may tap??


    • All the beer menus come from corporate in Irvine. The chalkboard rotates depending on previous beers being done. I think they had a delay in the shipment of Alpine beers (and subsequently Coronado and a few other SD based breweries.)
