  • Happy Cinco de One Year Anniversary

    It strikes me that if I was a crappy author who didn’t know better, I would start this blog with a half-ass line like…”Gee has it really been a year since we opened our doors? Where has the time gone?” That’s a fantastically original way of opening a piece. Perhaps I should opine or rip […]

  • The Lost Abbey

    Today is Friday April 6th and it’s a blogging day for all of us who blog. Today the group excercise is on Abbey Dubbel Style beers. Last month it was Stout. I don’t know where the last 30 days have gone but they certainly have been very monumental to say the least. At this time, […]

  • You ever have one of those days?

    A few weeks back, we were knee deep in a bottling marathon. It just seemed like every single time that we had a batch of beer ready to go, it needed to be bottled. These days, we are bottling about 80% of our beers with the rest going towards draft. The planets sometimes align and […]

  • One Bourbon, One Scotch and Too many Beers?

  • Inspired Beers for Sinners and Saints Alike

    In the beginning there was Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. They were told not to eat the fruit from the apple tree. It was off limits and the fruit was forbidden. They were tempted by the serpent and made a “choice” to eat from the tree. Their actions were not preordained but […]

  • Welcome to the Lost Abbey

    The Lost Abbey? Has it really been 8 years since Gina and I took that car ride to Arizona? On our way to Phoenix, she casually mentioned a restaurant and brewery concept that her brother Vince had conceived. The first time she uttered the words- “The Lost Abbey,” I just knew that one day the […]

TIME CHANGE REMINDER: We will be opening our San Marcos location today at 12:30pm instead of 11:30pm. Today only.
