Cali Common from Urban Growler Brewing: I love how so many of Urban Growler’s beers are food-friendly. Given that they are one of just a few breweries in town to have their own kitchen, it makes sense that they would have a decent number of beers that go great with what they’re serving.

In particular, I found this crisp, clean, slightly herbaceous beer, brewed with lager yeast but fermented at warmer temperatures, to be the perfect foil for the brewery’s Friday night perch fish fry.

If you haven’t been there to try the fish (or the beer) yet, I highly recommend making the trek soon. And get there early, because Fridays at Urban Growler are hopping.
