Peanut Butter Chocolate Milk Stout ‼️
From our friends at the Lost Coast Brewery in Eureka, California... ABV: 5.6% IBU: 64
The description from the brewers:
“A smooth and creamy midnight black stout. Deep rich sweetness with layers of coffee, caramel, toffee, prunes, raisins and roasted peanuts. An easy drinking dark beer, brewed with lactose to give a full mouthfeel and up-front sweetness. Balanced and approachable, for both casual fans of stouts and aficionados.”

Style: Fruited Sour ABV: 5.2% IBU: 15
From the Craft Beer & Brewing website:
What the brewers say
“Summer-forward sour ale with raspberry, pineapple, and orange.”
What our panel thought
“Candied-orange, tropical fruit, and berry aroma, like a mixed bag of hard candies. Candied orange notes carry into the flavor, with additional notes of pineapple, candied raspberry, and tangerine. Strong fruit character throughout. Acidity rounds the edges into an enjoyable package. Overall impression of fruit sherbet in beer form.”
What our editors thought
“The fruit-forward nose screams ‘summer’ as familiar flavors evoke agua fresca or big, bright smoothies. Sip is intense, pushing beer aside for a singular fruit experience.”
I’m back, baby!! 🍺 🎱 🍹 🎯 🍷

Good morning, all you beautiful people!! ☀️
So, as you’ve probably heard by now, the Japanese government has lifted the state of emergency in every prefecture across the country. 🇯🇵
Regular restaurants, shops, and cafés have reopened (most with shorter business hours & new take-out menus available). ☕️ 🥖 And schools will be back to their regular schedules starting next week (from Monday, June 1st). 👨🎓 📚
Unfortunately, the government has asked bars (I don’t serve food, so I’m classified as a different kind of business.) to hold off reopening for just a little longer. 🍺 🥃 🕙
So the bridge bar will continue to stay closed for a while longer. I’m hoping to get back into the swing of things by mid-June.
***I’ve got my health and I’ve been doing well enough that I can see this as a temporary inconvenience; it’s not the end of the world. 🌎 Hopefully I’ll see you all this summer when we can share a drink or two and laugh about all of this. 🍹 🍸 🍷
Take care of yourselves. I love you all!! 😍

On Saturday, May 16th, the Japanese government lifted the state of emergency in 39 of the 47 prefectures. Unfortunately, Hokkaido is one of the remaining 8 prefectures that is reopening a little slower. Most regular shops and restaurants have reopened, but bars were asked to hold off for another week, so (just to be safe), I’m staying closed until May 28th.
I will reopen the bridge bar on Friday, May 29th at 8:30pm. I hope to see a few of you/most of you/all of you sometime soon. I really miss chatting & drinking with you 😘 🍹!!!
Take care of yourselves, stay positive, and I’ll catch you on the flip side!! Cheers!! 🍺 🍺
