    Pub Quiz at The Dip

    August 30, 2016

    Trivia! Every other Wednesday, The Dip hosts a pub quiz with master MC, Luke. I failed to ask where his English style accent comes from exactly, but suffice it to say it was delightful to have him grill us on all things Redding. In case you arrive on an off...

  • Collaboratin’ ain’t easy. Unless you are an icon of modern brewing trying to put together a great recipe with one of the burgeoning forces in craft beer. Then, it all comes out smooth. This was a dream team of old and new breweries. Abe Kabakoff, a quiet, scientific minded pilot brewer (think interesting brews like Flipside...

  • Fusion Lounge sits on the lonely east end of Hartnell Ave., across from the Hen House. Its name is its heartbeat; the place is a perfect fusion of dive bar and ethnic restaurant. You are just as likely to find a group of construction workers shouting over dice as you are...

  • The Dip strives to be Redding’s number one destination for live music, fresh cocktails, and great beer. On Saturday they brought out all three in force with a ton of great pours from Deschutes Brewing and a variety of Rock ‘n Roll from house band, The Dipshits. It was a...

  • Collaboration Tuesday

    August 24, 2016

  • Woody’s Brewing Company sits on a quiet end of Oregon St. between an Antique Mall and the VFW. For the beer lover, this place has it all. There is an interesting pub menu – just foodie enough to seem cutting edge, while still filling my stomach and not emptying my...

  • It was a lively crowd that turned out at Fall River’s polished, small, but open feeling tasting room on Saturday. Many were the same wonderful folks we’d met at the Home Brew Competition earlier, all in a great mood to celebrate last year’s winner with the release. They arrived with...

  • I can’t believe I waited this long to get to The Dip! It’s a wide open room with chalkboards behind the full bar and a small stage overlooking a spacious dance floor. Brothers Aaron and John Gumm are new to the bar business, but old hats at finding good music....

  • If you missed the NorCal Brewing Solutions/Fall River Home Brew competition, you missed being greeted by Jordyn from the tap house, who ended her shift with beer left over to pour (we can do better than that, dear readers.) Upstairs the competition was in full swing and felt like some kind...
