Black Sands Brewery

Black Sands Brewery is a mash-up of all things trending right now. #craftbeer #homebrew #batchcoffee #coldbrew #minimalistdesign #goodeats. 
The idea is that everything is right there in front of you. From the minimalist and open decor, to the way the beer is made, to the way you can see the chefs in the kitchen preparing your meal. Transparency. 
The food is California inspired with a dash of Asian and Latino influences. Try the DFT Breakfast Torta with Chorizo, tapatio, avocado, egg, and paprika mayo for breakfast, the Korean Fried Chicken Sandwich with slaw, pickles, spicy mayo, and garlic soy for lunch or feast on the Black Sands Burger which is two patties with tomato, grilled onions, and special sauce for dinner. Make sure to pair each of these with a unique beverage. Start the day off with with a fresh brew of batch coffee or cold brew or a matcha latte. For lunch grab a house made beer like the SMASH Nelson, an IPA made with one "single malts and single hops." For dinner, try a special cocktail made with spirits from small batch distillers. 
When your done feasting your eyes on the beautiful interior architecture and feasting your belly on delicious food and drinks, head over to the homebrew store where you can buy everything you need to make your own beer. You can also pick up a recipe of the beer you just had, buy those exact ingredients and try your hand at making it yourself. They also offer classes and instructions for those brewers just starting out or looking to up their game.

Meyer Sound - New Kids on the Block

MDRP had a blast shooting the incredible in-the-round LYON linear sound reinforcement system by Meyer sound at SAP Center in San Jose, CA. With acts like Nelly, TLC and the headliners New Kids on the Block, who wouldn't have fun? Check out the pics and some details from Meyer sound here.

Kevin Elson, the FOH engineer chose the system and they were supplied through VER Tour Sound. He was a great subject to photograph and certainly knows his stuff.
