    So.....back on the Urban Roots topic.... I went there last night after work with my teenage son. A little chilly outside so no one sitting at the outdoor patio, but an average crowd inside. As mentioned in earlier posts, Cool vibe/music with plenty of room for hanging out with your group or even meeting some new people at the big tables. Mostly couples or groups, a few families. Barrel Room was pretty empty as no one was there to watch the Shitty TNF game with the Titans and Jags.

    Playground Tactics Double IPA was great. Smoked Brisket and Mac&Cheese were good.

    Just some New Glory post release feedback. The $8 cans of Mallow Blaster Imp Stout sold out within a few hours on Friday after release. Big hit locally.

    I did not get there in time for cans. But got to try it on Draft on Sunday. Mallow Blaster was pretty damn good. 15.5% was sure hidden, dangerously easy drinker. Not many reviews so far on untappd: https://untappd.com/b/new-glory-craft-brewery-mallow-blaster/2975485

    Just on a side note..... The new location for the New Glory Eatery and Taproom in Granite Bay is great. Best views of any local taproom. Scenic nature area and pond/lake right out from the outdoor patio. Good pizza was a plus as well.

    I really dug the new stout. I agree with the thoughts on the location, absolutely great new place.

    First beer out from the New Head Brewer Peter S today at Urban Roots.

    Made the trek over for lunch today. Well worth it. "Taste Like 2019" Hazy DIPA was great. Real good sign if more beers like this are on deck.

    Made a quick Moonraker stop today on the way to the In-laws in Grass Valley. Their beers are so damn good. I love their hazy stuff, but man their WC stuff is even better, imo. Easily my favorite non Sante NorCal brewery.

    Their WC stuff is so awesome. I wish they would just do those and 86 the haze. Not happening until if/when the haze craze dies off.

    I’ll be there in 2 weeks :)

    Back at Urban Roots in Midtown Sac this past Saturday night. Great atmosphere going even with the wind and rain outside. Pretty busy, but they had a lot of staff. Went Pork Shoulder & Coleslaw.

    "Taste Like 2019" was still on tap. Great double Hazy ipa.

    Really liked the "Luna De Miel" Mexican Lager as well. They nailed this one.

    I have really been digging their West Coast IPAs as well. Keep an eye out for the new West Coast IPA collab with RIIP Brewing. It got no hype at all, but it is really solid. "RIIPRAKER" DIPA.

    Moonraker cans all over distro in Sacramento and Placer County this week.

    First batch of YOJO for 2019 is tasting good.

    Also a new collab with HPB just came out.

    Back to Moonraker this weekend.

    BA Wicked Whisper Stout has a lot of Barrel. Buffalo Trace for sure. Four Roses as well. RIIPRAKER WC ipa was great. Cabana Hammock was really good as well. Consistency across all styles is getting good.

    Made my first trip to Urban Roots yesterday afternoon. It will not be my last.

    I'm not sure what I liked more, the beer or the food. They were both on point!

    Someone report how these are! Very curious, all other styles I have tried from them have been nailed so I don't expect less here.

    Big OG bArF and Lil bArF (bronco anti raider fan) meeting up tonight, sounds like Urban Roots & Fieldwork if anyone wanna touch tips.

    Gonna play disc golf tomorrow morning, hit up the foothills area stuff afterwards (Moksa, New Glory, Moonraker).

    Best chilaquiles place in the Rocklin-Auburn corridor?

    Rough roads coming down the hill from Reno. Even snowed as low as Auburn this morning.

    Are you playing Disc Golf in Rocklin (Johnson-Springview park)?

    This place is only a few blocks away for food. https://www.mezcalitocuisine.com/

    Just a few blocks from Moksa as well.

    Yeah I hear ya, bringing the 4wd instead of the Accord for that reason.

    Not sure where we're playing, just know my bro don't wanna play the same place we did last time in the Auburn area because he lost a disc or two he said, so that joint you mentioned is pretty likely I guess.

    I literally haven't played since whatever that course was in November, just been skiing every weekend.

    Thanks for the recs gonna try and hit both, over/under on your suggestions: 1.5

    Vanilla bottles sold out on Saturday. They still had plenty of Reg/Chocolate and some Coconut.

    Getting great reviews locally so far. Will be interesting to see other feedback from out of town as these make their way around the State.

    Got back to Urban Roots again.

    Chocolate Mustache Coconut Stout still on tap. I think this one is my favorite of the 3 versions.
