A couple weeks ago, Harry’s Hofbrau in San Jose had this Facebook update:
Tonight’s the big night! We have 2 kegs of the gold medal award winning Ryevalry. Tastings of the other bear republic brews will be available, and free appetizers while they last! It’s going to be a fun night hope to see you all there :)
The next day, there was this update:
Thank you all soo much for coming out! Ryevalry was a huge hit and out of the 2 kegs we have one half left in case you want seconds :).
So yes, I went on the first night and then returned the night after for seconds.
Ryevalry (8.2% ABV) from Bear Republic Brewing Company, Healdsburg, CA. A “very rare” DIPA. I really, really enjoyed this beer!
I needed some food to go with my beer.
Bear Republic’s Racer 5 IPA (7.0% ABV) – Hoppy!
I’m one of those that if I really like something, then I tend to stay loyal to it. Hence, a return visit to Harry’s Hofbrau the next day with two of my cousins in addition to my brother and the toddler.
Allagash White (5.0% ABV), Maine.
St. Bernardus Abt 12 (10.50% ABV), Belgium.
North Coast Pranqster Golden Ale (7.6% ABV) from North Coast Brewing Company, Fort Bragg, CA.
Ryevalry (8.2% ABV) from Bear Republic Brewing Company, Healdsburg, CA.
Cheers! By the way, the second pic below was taken by the toddler – I still marvel at his picture-taking ability.
It was great to return to this restaurant, as I used to frequent it back in my high school days two decades ago and hadn’t been back in ages. Can’t wait to go back soon and taste more beers.
