Hair of the Hog Brunch

Yesterday we had the pleasure of going to the Mike Hess Brewing tasting room in San Diego for their 3rd annual Hair of the Hog Brunch. It's always hosted on New Years Day. Fun, noisy, all around great! 


The beers were free flowing and there were some exceptional ones like Mocha Grazias cream ale on cask, Umbrix Imperial Stout and Brunus Robustus porter. 


The crowning glory were these bacon whiskey truffles by Andrea's Truffles. Locally made in San Diego and amazing! 


The rest of the food by Carnitas Snack Shack was good but I've had better at other beer events. If I lived closer I would definitely do this event again but since it's nearly impossible to get public transportation from the train to North Park I paid for an Uber each way.

I'm excited that we finally took the time to check out the full size brewery in North Park.  I've been a big fan of Mike Hess's beers since we first tried them in his Miramar nano brewery in 2011. Each beer is phenomenal and I mean it!
