OK, I come from the Left Coast. Specifically, Piedmont, CA, which you won’t find on anything but a detailed map of the San Francisco Bay Area. We like our anonymity because it is a small town and we like to keep it that way.
But people in Piedmont like to travel. If there is a corner of the world, someone from Piedmont or associated with Piedmont has been there.
So, in the midst of my beer blogging, I get a message from Mr. Rich Kitchen. Mr. Kitchens served as one of the gatekeepers coming out of Piedmont High School. For a lot of us, if you didn’t pass Kitchens class, you weren’t going to be leaving Piedmont.
Mr. Kitchens, and his beautiful wife Carol, who also taught for a while at Piedmont (still trying to figure that one out – nice going Mr. K!) send a note from Easter Island in the South Pacific that they are visiting. And then a second note with a picture of a beer from Easter Island! Yeah, Easter Island, addressed to me and for incorporation into the blog.
Mahina Pale Ale is bottled at Cerveceria Rapa Nui at Hanga Roa which is on Easter Island and it under the administration of Republic of Chile. It has a rich peach and apple taste taste combined hop flavor.
So, here is the beer shot:
Thanks a lot, Mr. Kitchens!
