After a semi disappointing visit to Green Flash we stopped at White Labs. I've purchased countless vials of yeast from them over the years and it was great to see where it came from. The building wasn't hard to find, just off a main street with plenty of parking right in front. The entrance to the tap room on the side, a garage door style, was opened and a few patrons where sipping on short pours. The inside did up the science lab vibe right down to the Erlenmeyer flask lights and a window so you could watch white coated scientists do some sciencey looking things to yeast slants.

Flights were arranged so you can taste/smell/observe the differences of several yeast strains on the same base wort. I went with the IPA flight made with 001,002, scotch ale and saison? The base beer was nothing to right home about but exemplified each yeast strain nicely. For the base beer the scotch was my fav.

Service was great, the people running the bar explained everything and broke it down to the non brewers to explain what they did and the idea. They also had a FrankenStout beer made with 96? different yeast strains, I like the creativity but the beer was meh.

No food, but I did pick up the Yeast book by owner Chris White and Former Homebrew Jamil Z. In all, If you are a homebrewer check it out for sure. If not I could see how it might not be that great, but give it a shot and you might be converted to a brewer instead of just a drinker :) Prost!
