Coachella Valley Brewing Co Showcase


Chris Anderson has been brewing for over 20 years he has won world beer cup, great Alaska beer and Balreywine festival best in show and also won the alpha king as a commercial brewer edging out Lagunitas, Russian River, Sierra Nevada, and Bear Republic, As a Homebrewer he has collected over 460 medals and awards to include Best in show at Brewmasters Challenge, Americas Finest City, Fur Rendezvous, and the Alaska State Fair. He has 19 NHC medals as well as two final round gold medals for sour beers. Much of his commercial experience comes from working at Midnight Sun Brewing Company under Gabe Fletcher who is now with Anchorage Brewing Co. and Broken Tooth Brewing Company both in Anchorage, Alaska. He is a classically trained chef and graduated with a culinary arts degree. This background allows him to use my palate to create a subtle layering of flavors rather than muddling his creations as is the case with many of the beers offered today. He is now the owner and brewmaster of Coachella Valley Brewing Company. A fast growing craft brewery specializing in the use of locally sourced ingredients from Coachella Valleys agricultural Mecca the brewery is located in Thousand Palms, Ca. 20 mikes east of Palm Springs. This far he has brewed over 40 different beers and 1500 barrels in our first 10 months.  

This Saturday from 3-4pm Chis will be at BLAH serving a guided tour of 6 of his beers, including 3 which were Fermented with a wild yeast Torrulaspora Delbrukii isolated by White Labs Troels Prahl in Dennark on an a abandoned apple orchard and brought to the US for propogation. The result is dominant bubble gum, banana, mango esters. Come join us as we learn more about yeast, brewing and the amazing things the Coachella Valley has to offer--including craft beer.

Torrulaspora Delbrukii Brews
Luke Rye Walker Belgian Red Rye IPA
Lost Viking Saison w/ Spelt and Rye

WORLD CUP 2014

ESPN will air all 64 games from the 2014 World Cup. ESPN will televise 43 matches, while ESPN2 will air 11 and ABC will show 10, including the final. All games will also be available on all available on WatchESPN (ESPN and ESPN2 matches) or WATCH ABC (ABC matches).

Kickoff times are generally noon, 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. ET until the final games of the group stage when they move to noon and 4 p.m. for the matches that are played simultaneously. The kickoff times remain at noon and 4 p.m. through the knockout stage until the final, which kicks off at 3 p.m. ET.

Of note, the first two U.S. games, June 16 against Ghana and June 22 against Portugal, will air at 6 p.m. ET, the latest U.S. viewers will have watched the USA at the World Cup.

ESPN’s coverage of every game will be preceded by a 30-minute pregame show, including teams walking onto the field, national anthems and ceremonial handshakes. Post-match segments will follow each game presentation.

Special editions of ESPN's SportsCenter will follow all games except when a game precedes another live event on the network. On every match day, World Cup Tonight will recap the day’s action, and ESPN FC World Cup Encore – which will generally air for two hours on match days on ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNEWS – will feature condensed versions of the best action in the day’s matches with analysis from ESPN FC pundits.

Note: All times are ET. Kickoff follows after half-hour pregame show.
