SACRAMENTO BEE: Everything from craft to ‘Old School’ is on tap here
If there is one remaining impediment preventing casual and corporate beer drinkers from fully embracing craft beer, it would be the relentless trendiness.
“Old school” beer fans don’t necessarily like the nonstop turnover of tap lists, the over reliance on beer nerd-baiting styles or the way that fruit goes in everything now.
They have a point: go to any craft brewery in the area, and you’ll be lucky to find a style that isn’t some sort of IPA, pale ale, pastry stout or sour beer. However, peruse the tap list at the Crooked Lane brewery and taproom in Auburn (one of the best-looking tasting rooms in the region), and you always see traditional styles like hefeweizens and Helles lagers.
