Beer+Cupcakes+Coffee=A Happy Saturday

 Knowing my love of cupcakes and the boy's love for beer, a friend suggested we try out PubCakes, a marriage between none other than, beer and cake! They just had their grand opening last month. The space is super cute, especially the small area outside that is decorated with succulents. PubCakes also shares the space with Treehouse Coffee Company, which supplied us with delicious caffeine for the day.

We had three mini cupcakes: the Top Ten Cake, Beer for Breakfast, and an Irish Carbomb (made with Guinness). You can see pics of them all below.

Overall, an interesting cupcake experience (have you ever had bacon on a cupcake?) that I would recommend trying out. I just wish they were closer to our neck of the woods. 

[Top Ten Cake: Karl Strauss Tower Ten IPA, cayenne caramel, cherry, and ancho chillies]

[Beer for Breakfast: Alesmith Wee Heavy, maple cream cheese frosting, and, wait for it, BACON]

PS: My iPhone camera amazes me more and more everyday!

If I ever find myself in southern California... I will have to base my trip around all of these cafes and restaurants you visit! <3

There is a bakery up in Portland that has cocktail cupcakes; same idea.

My friend was telling me that she bought some sort of Groupon for PubCakes. I'm really curious to go try them, especially now that you've recommended them as well. Hope you're having a great weekend!
