Pepperoni Pizza Egg Rolls with Marinara and Pesto Sauce – $7.00

The first thing we thought when we saw these rolls come out was “that’s it?” They are very small in size, which was a little disappointing for the price. However, we really liked them as a concept. They tasted a little like Totino’s Pizza Rolls, which can be good or bad depending on how you feel about Pizza Rolls. The sauce was a nice touch and paired really well with the rolls. Even though we think there should be three rolls for the price, we would still recommend giving these a try.

Bright and Balanced Beer Flight – $15.00

Pizza Port Brewing Company, California Honey, Golden Ale, Solana Beach(4.8% ABV) – $10.75

Hangar 24 Craft Brewery, Orange Wheat, American Wheat Ale, Redlands (4.6%) – $10.75

Left Coast Brewing Co., Pink Bikini, Raspberry Wheat, San Clemente (6.0% ABV) – $10.75

Karl Strauss Brewing Company, Columbia Street, Amber Lager, San Diego (4.5% ABV) – $10.75

These beers can be purchased as a flight or separately. We opted for the full flight, so we could get a sampling of each type of beer. We’re not huge craft beer drinkers, but this flight wasn’t bad. We liked that the beers had a light, fruity taste to them. They weren’t as heavy and filling as the second beer flight.

Hobby and Bold Beer Flight – $15.00

Smog City Brewing Co., Sabre-Toothed Squirrel, Hoppy Amber Ale, Torrance (7.0% ABV) – $10.75

Lost Winds Brewing Company, Tropiclemente, Tropical IPA, San Clemente (6.7% ABV) – $10.75

Towne Park Brew Co., Blacksmith, Black IPA, Anaheim (6.9% ABV) – $10.75

Asylum Brewing, Rorschach, Brown Ale with Kenyan Coffee, Anaheim (6.2% ABV) – $13.00

This beer flight was much heavier and didn’t suit our taste buds at all. Again, we’re not craft beer drinkers so this flight was lost on us. We thought it tasted too “chemically,” but we think that fans of craft beer would love this. For the price of the flight and the variety of beers, we think these flights are a good deal.

Three Weavers Brewing Company, Day Job, Pale Ale, Inglewood (5.6% ABV) – $11.75

Stereo Brewing Company, Perfect Day, American IPA, Placentia (7.2% ABV) – $10.75

And if you’re a beer connoisseur, there are two more beer options available for purchase. Both of these beers are local.
