I got the chance to attend Sanctum Brewing's anniversary party this past weekend. It was a blast, or can we still say 'Epic'? Delicious brews and delicious BBQ food. The beer selection was INSANE and there were no -meh- beers at all! My personal favorite was the NYXBORN, an English Brown Ale with Mexican Sweet Bread. Dare I say it? Best Brown Ale in the world! I also enjoyed the HAMISH THE STRONG, an Imperial Red made with Whiskey soaked oak chips. A different take was the CALIFORNIA ROLL'N. It is an American Ale that drinks like a meal. No kidding. You can taste the cucumbers and avocado in it, i even could taste the crab legs. It was delicious, why bother eating when all you need is Beer? I could go on forever but I got to taste just about everything they had. They had 3 serving areas and here is their beer list (sorry not too good a shot):
Did I mention the food? Oh yeah, all Barbequed on Red Oak logs:

I've done my trek of beer tastings, and I believe Pomona has a true brewing gem in Sanctum Brewing Company, these guys are amazing. If you get a chance, come by and visit. Especially during Art Walk, where the trolley will bring you over and pick you up for free from the downtown!
What a cool picture found on this month's (March 2015) Los Angeles Magazine's last page. Located on La Brea Ave in Hollywood. The same site where Charlie Chaplin stood for a photo and it is merged with a picture of today. Former site of the Charlie Chaplin Studios and presently owned by the Jim Henson Company.
I am deeply saddened to see this wonderful Pomona Police Officer I have had the pleasure of meeting many times go to a better place. This is the type of Officer that everyone loves and does his job serving ALL the people well. He is involved everywhere in the community and always has a cool laidback attitude that makes him so easy to talk to. His involvement with our Downtown Pomona was amazing, always keeping us safe and always involved with everything.
I'm upset, saddened and devastated to see one of the finest Law Officers this country has to offer now leave us. I wish much strength and love for his family and friends. He will be greatly missed.
Well, it's been about 8 months since I've posted anything on here... and I feel a comeback arriving! I've had many adventures and I haven't had the time to share them. Not even on Facebook or social media.
Now with my 2nd son off to college, I have a new office at home! Uh, more of an office/bedroom but nevertheless... uninhabited! Although my new State work of the past year takes up quite a bit of time, I've grown sick of coming home and vegging out with beer or a TV that is nothing but commercials and stupidity.
I shall return soon! Really, I will... I'll try... oh damn it.
After years of sweeping the issue under the rug and hoping no one
would notice, the FDA has now finally admitted that chicken meat sold
in the USA contains arsenic, a cancer-causing toxic chemical that’s
fatal in high doses.
But the real story is where this arsenic comes from: It’s added to the chicken feed on purpose!
An interesting take on the soon to be Syrian mess. Watch if you want to see something that makes sense, or more sense I should say. At least WAY more than corporate biased bullcrap that we're force fed.
Oh yeah Baby! It's here... the biggest rivalry in the Valley TONIGHT! Tickets are $10 and will be sold at Citrus College gates. San Dimas High has plenty of tickets available and Bonita High has sold out as of this morning.
It's time for Bonita to take back the Smudge Pot after last year's heartbreaking loss at the last minute. This is going to be one helluva game.
As a Bonita parent, I wish well to all the BEARCATS and especially to these absolute beasts:
Dimas Diaz, Christian McQueen, Noah Montoya, Thomas Loy, Jacob Karim and Christian Ramos.
Wow, this is the longest hiatus I've taken away from the blog. I am still here (for all 2 of you). It's been a long and hectic summer, the busiest so far! So many things have happened around town that I just can't cram it all into this post. I was happy for Freddie Rodriguez securing his run for Assembly coming up in September. I've been messing in local politics lately too...
I was at this year Claremont's 4th of July parade, my daughter marched with the El Roble Cheerleaders. It was so much fun! Here's the Claremont City Council all in one:
I've managed to go to quite a few Dodger games this year (lucky me) and
they are having an amazing year! Where are all the overnight Angel fans
from 2000 and so on? (Crickets). Here' a pic of Gonzalez at bat (This
was versus the Reds):
Downtown Pomona has had quite a few events this summer. I took a few of the guys from Bonita High School's football team to the Fist of Gold outdoor boxing. 11 fights total, all were great! Also, this year's D.P.O.A.'s anniversary party was so much fun. It was in the style of the 1920's at the historic Fox theater. Here's a pic of the flapper dancers:
Also, managed to hike the Marshall Canyon in La Verne earlier this summer. Can you spot the deer?:
Anyways, just wanted to pop my head in and say hi to my fellow bloggers
Los Angeles native living in the ignored northeastern edge of Pomona for the past 10+ years. What brought me here? Cheap Housing. I still live in what I had originally bought as an 'investment' property... and love it!
