I recently had a coworker from Cupertino area come down to Austin for business, and I picked her up a bottle of a local brewery Adelbert's in Pflugerville, TX because she said she liked spiced belgians. Now its her turn to return the favor, when she comes back in April I've demanded she bring me a bottle of something you can only get where she lives. But she's new to craft beer, and I need to arm her, in the next two weeks, with some good ideas. I like all beers but really like IPA's and Imperial Porters. Any ideas from Cupertino/Sacramento-area BA'ers?
