Hanging Out @ Brouwerij West

Driving to San Pedro with a friend

A cool brewery in one of warehouses near Port of Los Angeles

8 beers offered

Ordering all of them as taster

Brilliant But Lazy, Popfuji, Saison Extra, Switcheroo, Dog Ate My Homework, Ask the Dust, Falling Water, Vampire Blues

They name them interesting and all of them taste good. Some are very hoppy. My favorite is Brilliant But Lazy. Dog Ate My HW tastes like berry juice but contains highest 7% alcohol.

Two food venders were there.

A lot of seatings outside. It was chilly at night.

Pretty purple sky with moon.

Wednesday Food Bar Special @ Whole Foods

I think my belly has got bigger and fatter, so try to have salad for dinner recently.

Today I stopped by Whole Foods and got vegetable/salad.

Cool Container

A little more than 1.0 lb
I put 5-6 different items on bed of arugula & organic kale. Some are good, others are ok. Feels healthy.
