Babe’s Beer – The Pride of Rancho Mirage – Expands Throughout the Palm Springs Valley

It’s probably not the humblest trait in the world to call oneself “generous,” but I have to say, when I like something, I love sharing it with as many people as I can.  And I’ve been a fan of both the food—and the amazing beers—at Babe’s Bar-B-Que and Brewhouse since the second they opened their doors at The River in Rancho Mirage.  (My blogging pal Potter is also a lover of their lush brews… Check out his earlier post at: www.whereisranchomirage.com/babes-barbeque-and-brewhouse)

Babe’s Brewhouse Brewmaster Scott Grabbe has long been doing an extraordinary job of creating some of the most intriguing concoctions in Southern California.  Since Babe’s is the only micro-brewery in the Palm Springs Valley, beer lovers come from far and wide to sample its wide variety of offerings.  And with some of the most amazing bar-b-que in the world served at Babe’s, beer is often the accompaniment of choice.

The latest and greatest Babe’s news is that its beers are no longer served exclusively at the eatery.  COO and chef extraordinaire Arthur Vasquez recently told me about plans to expand distribution of the restaurant’s amazing beers beyond the borders of Babe’s.  Needless to say, I felt compelled to tell the world.  Sold at a number of venues from Palm Springs and Desert Hot Springs to the West, and Palm Desert and La Quinta to the East, now you need never be more than a few miles away from a bounty of beautiful Babe’s beers.  Many of these establishments are serving either on tap or in 22 oz. Bombers.  Winning award after award, these delicious delights—which include awesome ales, luscious lagers, and some European-style beers that will knock your socks off—aren’t in the habit of disappointing.

So whether you’re dining at the one-and-only Babe’s Bar-B-Que and Brewhouse on Highway 111 in Rancho Mirage, or meandering through the Palm Springs Valley while sampling the region’s scrumptious culinary fare, ask your bartender or server for “the local brew.”  And if by any chance they know not of what you speak, be generous and share the secret of Babe’s.   www.babesbbq.com
