    I am not a beer drinker, due to being severely allergic to alcohol, probably a good thing with a maiden name like Middendorf.

    I do, however, enjoy my pub foods and I have no problem finding a beer loving friend.

    Many of my friends are big fans of Sierra Pale Ale, however.

    Since I do hiking up in your neck of the woods on a regular basis, Jernigan’s Grill and Tap House sounds like the perfect refueling stop before going home to Sacramento :)

  2. Stephanie says:

    I love a good IPA in the Spring and Summer and a good hearty Stout in the Winter!

  3. I accept the terms of your deal :)

  4. Cathy says:

    Leinenkugels Sunset Wheat (which I can never find) , Lagunitas Maximus, Pliny the Elder or the Younger (I’m not an ageist)

  5. Meshawn says:

    Oooh, we’ve been meaning to check this place out. And what a good excuse to bring along a friend :)

  6. Jason says:

    Stout.

  7. Oh, right, the type of beer…i just read your post on Facebook….I like the kind in a glass, placed in front of me by a friend, on a hot summer day…

  8. amanda says:

    we love Jernigan’s! it’s very family-friendly, a great place to have meetings, and my go-to for a delicious IPA. they are always changing their beers on tap, which allows me to taste many beers from all over! (my favorite beers are obviously IPAs.)

  9. Michelle Noe says:

    My favorite was one that was brewed in bourbon casks… but any stout will do in a pinch… I love Jernigans…

  10. Suzy says:

    Nice little Pub, Delish food, great service….and then there is the Beer !! IPA’s for me.

  11. Donna Loper says:

    I like all ales from light to dark except flavored ones like Blue Moon.

  12. Heidi LeVell says:

    New kind just found at the Patch rocks: Session Premium Dark Lager, Black. Yummy!!

  13. Denise Wilson says:

    My favorite kind of beer? Ice cold!

  14. Douglas Keachie says:

    Anchor Steam, as I am a Punk from San Francisco.

  15. Dana Tanner Powell says:

    My favorite beer is any beer (except Budweiser) that I share with my hubby. : )

  16. Erica says:

    Hey Erin – you know I’m a fan of both beer and wine, but I’m an even bigger fan of you and Dan! Can’t wait to see you in a few weeks!

    • erin says:

      Ah… I’m a fan of yours too… I think there may be an opportunity to have a beer here when you come to visit (it’s next door to where we’re sending the kids off to camp for the week!).

  17. Karen McCann says:

    Ice cold beer on a hot day! My current favorite is scrimshaw from north coast brewing co.

  18. Cynthia Levesque says:

    I love a good porter or stout. But on a hot summer day, there’s nothing like a cold glass of hefeweizen with an orange slice. Too bad I’m preggers at the moment, but I can think of a few peeps who wouldn’t mind sharing this prize;)

  19. Daisy says:

    I’m another IPA person for all seasons, but in summer I like a citrusy hefeweizen and winter, a comforting, ie, not-cold oatmeal stout.

  20. Tammy says:

    I love dark beers like porters and stouts, but also like to try beer that I’ve never tried before which is why I love the idea of pint night!

    • erin says:

      My research assistant agreed with this idea as well, sample a little of everything and he was so excited that he left the Pint Night with a new pint glass, since we don’t have enough, right?

  21. Beth says:

    Recently, I have been drinking stouts! Who knew!

    • erin says:

      Cheers my friend Beth! While I’m not going to drink a stout with you, I’d be happy to keep you company while you drank one…

  22. Amber says:

    My husband and I are both fond of porters and stouts, although he’ll also enjoy a Mexican lager on occasion.

    I only noticed this place in the last two weeks or so when I was on my way to SPD. Funny how I can drive down the same street every week and just not look around much!

    • erin says:

      Oh I have these same realizations too, but the blog gets me to look at new places, or revisit old places… amazing what you can find in your own backyard!

  23. Janet Yates says:

    My favorite beer – root beer :)

  24. SSteve says:

    Guinness. No matter what else I try, I always come back to Guinness.

  25. Ruth Chase says:

    First off, blah blah blah, they have good beer, of course they do. Cough, cough …. Bass, Newcastle, cold.

    I would just like to point out that they “BECAUSE OF YOU ERIN, I FOUND THEM” have the best burgers !!!. You know how I am about my burgers, I am VERY PICKY the other places whom will remain nameless don’t even come close, though a few equal.

    This is where I go for a burger and beer combo 9 times out of 10.

    • erin says:

      Now you’re making me hungry… burgers… glad to know I’m helping your Nevada City experience with my suggestions. And knowing you, you’re telling all these respective businesses about your friend Erin.

  26. Katrina says:

    IPA … but not just called “IPA” .. we’re talking hoppy and happy IPA! Bite you it is so hoppy IPA!!
    PU240 at Auburn Alehouse, Hop Venom IPA at Boneyard Brewing co, Hoptimum at Sierra Nev.
    Every season, this is my choice. Yes, even a hot day. . When I find one, ahh, that big calm sigh. Yummm.
    : )

  27. Kiana says:

    btw – Kiana wants you to know that her mama makes a good brew … Ginger brew … super super yummy too … although she likes root beer more! I ferment off too much of the sugar for her taste!

    (PS — Does Jerrigans have any ginger brew yet?)

  28. Ingrid Knox says:

    I’m not a big beer fan, so I like wimpy beers like Corona and Henry Winehard. But we did taste a beer at Jernigans that tasted of apricots – very nice. It is a nice place to grab a sandwich or burger, which is usually what I have when we’ve stopped by in the past.

  29. Rae says:

    My favorite beer is Heady Topper from Waterbury Vermont. It is a super aromatic, hoppy beer and very strong. Everybody should try it!!

  30. rica says:

    I love Jernigans, Sean the owner is awesome! great beer, good food and fun times!!

  31. Matt says:

    Nothin better than a good Pils or IPA to go with the awesome food that Jernigan’s has to offer.. Especially if there is a Giants game on!!

  32. Randi says:

    I am an IPA lady; for me other beers do not compare with the hoppy fragrance, bitter elements, and complex flavors they offer. Love the Jernigans beer experience, so many unusual offerings and always changing!

  33. Denise Bryant says:

    I’d love a root beer! Great opportunity to try out this place!
