September 16, 2020

If three years ago somebody had mentioned to Rachel and Andrew Sabatine that a pandemic and apocalyptic fires were coming, they might have decided against launching a craft brewery.

We’ve yet to take a trip to Yosemite since Around the Horn Brewing opened, but clearly the national park isn’t the only attraction in town. You Stay Classy was one of the best west coast IPAs at the festival… but the real standout was the Tip Top Mocha Pop, a blackberry and coffee fruited sour that blew us away. In a festival that featured several delicious fruited sours, Tip Top Mocha Pop was easily the most distinctive in the field.
