Beer There, Drunk That
About This Show
Two craft beer lovers, born and bred in the Mecca of Microbrews:
Southern California, are serving up an un-jaded and pretension-free review of a different
Brewery each and every week on their endless quest to cut through trendy terminology
and elitist B.S. to answer the simple question: is this Brewery (or bunch of brews) great,
garden variety, or gross?

RIIP Beer Company Brewery Review - 021
Steve & Joey head to Huntington Beach once again to hit up RIIP Beer Company, nestled virtually sand-side right off the famous Pacific Coast Highway. RIIP represents your classic home-brew rags to riches story, with too friends (Spencer Colman and Mike Baccaro, in this case) starting with some basic equipment in their garage, then having the innovative idea to become the “milkmen of craft beer” by buying, and delivering with, a 1931 Helms Bakery Coach van, to now having a permanent - and expanding - spot surf city, USA. The boys get flights of almost the entire tap list, including Chok Ya Later American IPA, ShiQi American IPA, Iron Lung Dry Stout, Dan-k IPA, Gate Keeper Nitro Porter, Rye OG Pale Ale, and Jetty Water Blonde; but does RIIP manage to carve its own beer-scented path...or does it simply rip off ideas from better brew-houses?
