Newport Beach Brewing Co. Pelican Pale Ale

Brewed with Cascade hops... Actually tastes quite a bit similar to Stone Pale Ale even though there's no cascade hops in that.

My first trip to Newport Brewing Company was nice. The beers were good (not great or anything) and the food was quite good as was the atmosphere. I also tried their German Hefe which was tasty, although I found their IPA to be lacking any sort of punch. We also tried their Belgian Pale Ale (6.3%) which was good and very heavy on the Belgian yeast flavor. It's kinda sad I never knew about this place when I lived a few miles away from it in my undergrad days.

How could you have NOT known about the Newport Beach Brewery???? I have been drink what I have found to be the best selection over all of any of the 50+ micro brewerys I have visited in the US. I live in Riverside and make the drive to Newport at least once a month for the last 10 years! Are you kidding?? The IPA at NBBC is off the hook!!! You really need to get out more and do some tasting!!!
