Orange juice?! Who needs orange juice

Apparently, September is National Breakfast Month, so happy National Breakfast Month, everybody! But instead of writing another list of breakfast restaurants (which you can read here), here's a list of all the best Orange County beers that would be pretty great for breakfast. Note: I'm not telling you to start every morning with a drink, but football season is kicking off soon and those East Coast games do start kind of early...

5. Dusk Till Dawn -- Pizza Port Brewing Co.

Nice and hearty!

Dusk Till Dawn, served only in eight-ounce glasses, is a pretty heavy beer but hot damn if it isn't a beer to wake up to. Despite tapping in at 10.3 percent ABV, Dusk Till Dawn is pleasantly drinkable. This imperial coffee porter gives off those great coffee notes that will clear any caffeine headache with a mere whiff. Brewed with freshly roasted coffee from Caffe Calabria, it's basically an iced coffee in a pint glass and is the perfect pick-me-up.

4. Green Tea Hanamachi -- Bottle Logic Brewing

Believe it or not, some people actually don't drink coffee and abhor anything resembling the taste of the stuff (Strange, I know). But it's okay, Bottle Logic has got your back with their Green Tea Hanamachi. They took their Jasmine rice lager made with sake yeast and threw in some green tea for a clever new take on their staple Hanamachi (Read more about Hanamachi here). This bubbly and crisp brew has you drinking green tea like you never have before. While the beer is not always available in the taproom, the brewery does a great job of rotating their selection so that you never go too long without one of your favorites, and you can always try something new.

Late to the party. You should have done this article before Kona Brewing Co., pulled their Pipeline Porter from the mainland. It was one of the best coffee style porters made!

Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job I’ve had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail.

I'll throw in a pitch for Bottle Logic's Toasted In Tahiti ale. It's toasted coconut and coffee flavor would go good with breakfast.


Last week I had a beer with breakfast for the first time in my life. I did an early morning 30 mile bike ride with a charity group that ended at a pub. We had huge Irish breakfasts and I ordered a wheat beer and it was a perfect accompaniment to breakfast foods. Can't wait to do it again.
