Hey Everyone!

Lets welcome Matro;
a very good friend, fellow beer booter, motorcycle-less vintage bike lover, tech head, gamer, computer nerd and maybe the worst chug-a-lug'er ever, is going to be the new contributor to the Glass Boot Blogspot.

You want to know more about pre 90's genre music, maybe find out what happens to old Punk Rockers when they grow up, then you maybe in the right place...

Welcome aboard buddy!

Punk Rock Friday - Band of the Day

First off, let me introduce myself. If you have been to a beer booters event...chances are I've shared a conversation with you about bikes or music. I have been fortunate enough to have grown up in Southern California at a time where I was able to see the most amazing bands in some of the best venues like Iguanas (Tiajuana), Acid House (Tiajuana), Showcase Theatre (Corona), World Beat Center (San Diego), SOMA when it was actually South of Market (San Diego), Che Cafe (San Diego), Mesopotamia Cafe (Lemon Grove), Wabash Hall (San Diego), Soul Kitchen (El Cajon), Jackie Robinson YMCA (San Diego), Casbah/Crowbar/Velvet (San Diego)...just to name a few.

My plan is to break up each day of the week with a review of a band per genre...in this format.
Monday - 80s Alternative/New Wave/ Industrial/ Goth
Tuesday - Contemporary Alternative/Neuvo New Wave
Wednesday - Rockabilly/Country Western/Big Band
Thursday - Ska
Friday - Punk Rock/Emo/Straight Edge
Weekends - Miscellaneous

Feel free to email me at matro@thebeerbooters.com with any band suggestions or reviews.


My first post for Punk Rock Fridays is an easy choice for me...Tiltwheel...as this is my all time favorite band fronted by one of the coolest fucking guys in San Diego, Davey Quinn. I first met Davey through an old Punk BBS (Bulletin Board System) that I ran in the late 80s early 90s. As far as I know...Tiltwheel has always been a trio with Davey on guitar and vocals. The rest of the lineup has gone through many changes including a short stint with Tom DeLong of Blink 182.

Tiltwheel can be best described as Jawbreaker with talent (no offense to Jawbreaker). Obvious influences contributing to their raw style is depression, beer, mexican food, beer, hate, beer, anger, and beer. Favorites include "It's Amazing, the Things You Find in Your Pocket on a Bender", "Louis Hopeless is a Rockstar", and "All I Care About is Me, My Rum, and You." If you get the opportunity to see these guys play live, don't miss it. Drink some beer and you'll feel right at home.

Anchor Humming Ale: American Pale Ale: 5.9% ABV: Seasonal Release: Draft

To commemorate an important milestone in Anchor Brewing’s long history, a special ale seemed appropriate. Having found and experimented with a very rare and unusual hop variety called Nelson Sauvin, we knew that its unique character would impart a wonderful flavor and aroma to a pale ale brewed especially for the occasion: Humming Ale.

BMW R80 Cafe Racer

BMW R80 cafe racer
If you’re into BMW café racers, you probably know the BMW Café blog, run by Dutchman Michiel de Molenaar. This BMW R80 is the bike that originally got Michiel hooked on building and riding old motorcycles, and shows what can be done with a small budget and a lot of inspiration. He started with a crashed 1988 model, which means it should have a 797 cc version of the classic boxer twin. But the previous owner had changed the original engine for a one-liter motor of unknown provenance. Then the gearbox packed up, so Michiel retro-fitted the transmission and kickstart from an R65—which also allowed him to run a smaller and lighter battery. The exhaust system is home-made, using an old Virago muffler and a one-dollar stainless salad bowl.

“The new rear subframe is made out of a chopped-up bicycle carrier I found in someone’s trash,” says Michiel. “The only really expensive part is the [Acewell] instrument. I wanted a rev counter, speedo and all the idiot lights, but I also wanted to have the most minimalistic cockpit I could find—so I decided to spend some money on that.” The clip-ons are ebay items and the rear sets came off an early 90s Honda sports bike of unknown description. The headlight is a modern Ural part, and the rear fender started life as a Honda CX500 front fender. As they say, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”—and Michiel has shown that you don’t need a huge bank balance to make a bike look like a million bucks. Check out his lovely Honda CB750 cafe racer for even more Dutch goodness.

Beer of the Day



BALLAST POINT Indra Kunindra 22oz.

Ballast Point Brewing Company is proud to announce the release of Indra Kunindra India-Style Export Stout in 22oz bottles. You may remember this brew from the big splash it made at the National Homebrewer's Confrence Pro Night back in June. It won second place in the people's choice award balloting and was the talk of the evening.

After nearly a year of wrangling with the ABC and TTB and other sanctioning bodies (who didn't quite know what to think of a beer made with such unique ingredients), we are legal and have beer in bottles. This beer will be available at both of our brewery locations beginning tomorrow.

Indra Kunindra is a 7% ABV export stout created by homebrewer Alex Tweet for a competition held in 2010 at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido (who also has these bottles). In addition to a small amount of Fuggle hops used for bittering, five special ingredients are employed. Madras curry, cumin, cayenne, toasted coconut and Kaffir lime leaf all leave their own unique mark on what is sure to be the only brew of it's kind you've ever had.

There are no promises that we will ever make this beer again so be sure and grab this one of a kind offering while you have the opportunity. You won't be disappointed. Cheers!

Motorbike Drifts, Powerslides and Stuff - Doin It!

Beer of the Day





Last week I took my kid to The Hot Dog Shoppe over here in Temecula. I ordered myself up a Kraut Brat and he had the good ol' American special. The best thing was that they literally only have Pabst on Tap in this Blue Collar Paradise - Pabst is good on tap!

Pabst Blue Ribbon:
A contrasting counterpoint of sharp texture and flowing sweetness is evident at the first sip of this historic brew. A slowly increasing hoppiness adds to the interplay of ingredients, while the texture smooths out by mid-bottle. The clear, pale-gold body is light and fizzy. Medium-bodied Blue Ribbon finishes with a dusting of malts and hops

New Belgium Brewery: Dunkelweiss

Deep amber brown with a dense off-white head, Dunkelweiss rediscovers hefeweissbiers through a Belgian brewer’s lens. Envisioned by our own Matty “Smooth” Gilliland, this beer opens with sweet clove, chocolate and banana notes that give way to a warm finish with a peppery tingle across the palate.

“I thought it would be fun to make a German wheat beer; we’ve explored the Belgian wheats pretty thoroughly,” said brewer, Matt Gilliland. “Since this is Lips of Faith, and part of what makes that program fun is to make beers that are really unique and different, making a big, strong, dark Weiss beer sounded pretty folly-licious. It’ll still showcase all of the flavors that a Hefeweiss beer would have, but add in the burly body and extra punch. Think of it as a Gran Cru dunkelweiss.”

Just the facts Ma'am...

ABV - 9.0%

Hops - Target

Malts - Pale, Wheat, Black Barley

OG - 24.7

Fruits/Spice - Black Pepper, Cloves

View PDF of Anchor Steam flyer




San Francisco's famous Anchor Steam®, the classic of American brewing tradition since 1896, is virtually handmade, with an exceptional respect for the ancient art of brewing. The deep amber color, thick creamy head, and rich flavor all testify to our traditional brewing methods. Anchor Steam is unique, for our brewing process has evolved over many decades and is like no other in the world.

A San Francisco original since 1896 Anchor Steam derives its unusual name from the 19th century when "steam" seems to have been a nickname for beer brewed on the West Coast of America under primitive conditions and without ice. The brewing methods of those days are a mystery and, although there are many theories, no one can say with certainty why the word "steam" came to be associated with beer. For many decades Anchor alone has used this quaint name for its unique beer. In modern times, "Steam" has become a trademark of Anchor Brewing.

New Belgium La Folie,
French for Folly, is a wood-conditioned sour brown beer, having aged one to three years in French oak foeders formerly used in wine production. La Folie is sharp like a lambic, sour in the finish, and redolent of the oaky tannins one might find in a fine wine Cabernet. The result is a sour brown ale with a smooth oaky nose and a delightful tart finish. ABV 6% YUM!

Beer of the Day


Piraat is a wickedly rich and rounded brew that packs a mighty punch. The powerful glow builds up from inside. Deep golden with a subtle haze. Lots of hops and malt. Mild sweetness. Reminiscent of bread dough, spices and tropical fruits. ABV 10.5%

Happy Pirate Day



Maybe this one is more fitting for these days...
