Lauren talks about the craft beer movement in Stockton and the rest of California. 

She also brought along some great California brews for us to sample:

Dust Bowl's Hobo Pilsner

Sudwerk's Dry Hop Lager

Russian River Brewing Co. and Sierra Nevada Beer Camp's Yvan the Great Belgian-Style Blonde

21st Amendment Brewery Brew Free or Die IPA

Lauren works at The Abbey Trappist Pub which has been on the Mile for three years. With eight beers on draft and around 70 different bottles on hand - many of which a from brewers within an hour and a half drive from Stockton - there is a beer there for every type of drinker.

She worked alongside other brewers and the crew at Dust Bowl Brewing to help create Stockton Session, a hoppy red ale available just during Stockton Beer Week. Lauren also helped organize some Stockton Beer Week events like the beer and macaron pairing last weekend (sorry if you missed that one!).

Don't forget to come to The Abbey on Saturday for the Local's Only Beer Fest
