Sugba! And New Republic Brewery Revisited

On many weekends there are now food trucks and bands out at New Republic Brewery (previously covered in this blog here).  We recently stopped by when Ride the Panda! was playing and Sugba Philippine food truck was there. And it gave me a chance to play with some of the settings on my camera.

Sugba features Philippine street food delivered with a smile.  I have a couple of go-to favorites, but honestly everything I've ever tried of theirs has been delicious.

Lumpia are deep fried spring roll sticks filled with meat and vegetables.  Served with a sweet and spicy dipping sauce over fritos. 

Combo #1 is made up of pork skewers served with rice and a spicy sauce.
Since I last wrote about New Republic Brewery some things have changed. They've moved and expanded, and they've added new beers to their inventory.

Much larger fermenters. 

Visitors hang out in the brewery. And, yes, this is a working brewery.  Complete with recycled dairy tanks.

Most beer is made from malted barley. New Republic uses several varieties that give their beers a unique flavor.

Windlass sweet potato porter is the current seasonal.  Dammit Jim! amber, Kadigan blonde, Skylight dunkel, and Whipsaw double IPA are usually available.  Astrolabe sour is hard to find.
Like the beer? Wear the logo. 
It was a bit chilly the evening we were there so they lit the fire pits. 
The evening we were there the Creative Capsule was also there to provide family-friendly entertainment. The evening's project was decorating old 45 records. 

To find out who is playing at the brewery and/or which food truck is there, visit the brewery's website, twitter feed, or facebook page.
