  • 2010 Angel’s Share Grand Cru

    When we opened our doors back in May of 2006 we knew barrel aged beers and blending of barrels was going to be a big part of our long term strategy. We built a dedicated barrel room for aging our beers and invoked the expression “In Illa Nos Fides” above the threshold for the room. […]

  • Typical Saturday at The Lost Abbey

    It’s a Saturday in January which means there’s snow on the ground in most of the country, NFL playoffs on the TV and a bunch of people enjoying our tasting room at Port Brewing. In case you haven’t visited us in a while you may not know that Saturdays have turned into quite the place […]

  • Christmas is coming…I asked Santa for a Hood and Wire Unit.

    It’s Monday of Christmas week. It’s finally here! I’m sitting at my desk staring at the box with Sydney’s new Princess Scooter in it. I need to put it together. It’s pretty much the only thing she asked Santa for this year. As I stare at the box, I am reminded that there are a […]

  • High on Fridays or is it the drugs?

    It’s Friday and the Ramones are jamming on the CD player. Me, I’m hunkered down in my office. The tasting bar is packed and Marty is doing a brisk business of selling pork products from his hot dog cart out front. What beer am I drinking as I type this? The clear alcohol free kind […]

  • Friday nights, DUI Checkpoints and .068

    When we began the process of acquiring this brewery in San Marcos some 4 years ago, I made a decision to move my family(Maureen was pregnant with Sydney and due in May of 2006) to San Marcos so that I could be closer to the brewery. We found a place that is above Cal State […]

  • Christmas in July

    Here in San Diego, even when it’s supposed to be Christmas time, it rarely truly feels like Christmas.  In December each year, other parts of the country, throw on their best Christmas sweaters and sing about how the “weather outside is frightful.”  Us, we head for the beach and roast Marshmallows (not Chestnuts) by a bonfire.  Yet, […]

  • Moses is a Son of a Bitch

    Says me.  This past week, we receieved our labels for Ten Commandments and today, the beer is finally on sale at the brewery.  I say finally because I’ve come to conclude that Moses is an egotistical son of a bitch who never seems to be able to get in the bottle on time.  We’v been […]
