Cheers to California!

Watermelon Beer?  In October?  Don't knock it until you've tried it!  I will admit that I am a victim of packaging, and have come home from the store more times that I care to admit with cans of food purchased only because of their beautiful labels, so it is no surprise that on my first visit to the amazing Berkeley Bowl, this beer, the perfect representation of my visit to the bay area jumped into my basket, along with a watermelon to serve it with.  The beer soaked fizzy watermelon at the bottom of the glass was delicious!  And, while today in Brooklyn as I sit here eating curried carrot soup for lunch I can hardly imagine drinking a fruity beer, last week in the sunshine state of California it was perfect.
