I've always been a little disappointed with the amount of cider available at ABL (which is only fair, since i'm definitely in the minority of the beer/cider split.) Clearly the solution to this is to bring some cider along. The _reasonable_ way to do so would be to pick up a six pack or three at Albertsons or BevMo. However i was intrigued to notice a few weeks ago that the menu at the BJs near shelleycat sells kegs, and i was seriously tempted to get a full or half keg of berry burst cider to bring to the party. Unfortunately when i called them up i found that the cider isn't actually one of the options for the kegs =P Probably just as well, since the regular beer is $135 for a full keg, and the cider probably would have been a little more. Still, it's kind of sad.

Have you guys been to BJs yet? If not you definitely need to try it before you leave!

Do you guys still come by Torrance on occasion? I just recently found out there's supposed to be one located in the Del Amo Fashion Center, perhaps we could arrange to meet there sometime :)

mmm cider! Have you tried Ace? The brewery is a short drive from my home, and it is SO delicious. The pear is my favorite, but they make an apple and a berry that are certainly worth sampling.

I think i've tried Ace Pear Cider and it was too bitter for me or something. Yes, i'm a wuss :)

I was going to say that maybe we could meet up (and I could meet shelleycat), but alas I have to entertain my cousin this weekend and drive her around a bit so I don't think that's possible :(

I am intrigued by this notion of "berry burst cider". I'm generally kind of "eh" on ciders (which is better than I am on most beers still), but the beers I like best are the berry ones, so this concept has promise.

Berry Burst Cider is the best drink evar!

Unfortunately the prospects don't look so good for you =/

Perhaps the next time you're in _southern_ California we'll have to go to one? :)

Man, not only are none near me, they seem actively concentrated in places I never go, with the exception of a couple in CA. I wonder if anyone else makes a nice berry cider. I don't think I've seen any at the co-op.

Southcenter, looks like. Not nearly close enough.
