Sour Friends Fest: A SoCal Sour & Wild Ale Appreciation Party!

June 22 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm

- $45

 

 

 

Sour Friends Fest is back, this time in partnership with the Los Angeles County’s Brewers Guild. Join us during the 11th annual L.A. Beer Week on Saturday June 22nd for a celebration of some of the best barrel aged sour beer being produced within Southern CA.

This year, you’ll enjoy unlimited 3oz pours from the following independent breweries:

Beachwood Blendery

Berry Relativity 6.80%

Belgian-style sour ale fermented and aged in oak barrels with Boysenberry, Raspberry and Blood Orange zest

For The Love of Guava 6.50%

Belgian-style sour ale fermented and aged in oak barrels with guava

 

Brouwerij West

Picture Brain – Blueberry MF Saison 6.66%

Another in our line of mixed-fermentation saisons, PICTURE BRAIN is fermented in our stainless solera for six months, transfered and aged in used Syrah puncheons for another six months on blueberries, and finally bottle conditioned for another year. The process is long and arduous, but the results are incredibly worth the wait.

Dog Ate My Homework 7%

A fresh, decidedly fruit-forward saison, brewed with Washington State blackberries and black currants. This beer is deep red in color, but rather than being sweet like many fruit beers, Dog Ate My Homework is dry, tart, and refreshing.

 

Casa Agria Specialty Ales

Fruta Mixta 8.4%

Saison aged on apricot, peach, and raspberry. 

Cerezita 6.4%

Grisette aged on tart cherries and pinot noir grape skins

 

Cellador Ales

Cuvee De Fleur 5.6%
This is the unfruited base beer for our Homage collaboration Fleur de Masumoto blend 2.

Blend of barrel aged Berliner Weisse style beers with whole red raspberries

Craftsman Brewing 

Peachy Keen 8.3%

Two full years of barrel aging and the addition of five different Masumoto Farm peach and nectarine varieties compose what can be best described as a sublime drinking experience. Light in body, slightly tart and ultimately easy going but full of flavor, Peachy Keen is all about time and great ingredients.

Honesty Ale 6.8%

A barrel-aged sour beer brewed in 2016 with the addition of Montgomery Cherries from Washington worth their weight in gold.  Aged in French oak for 2 years, tart with a lovely cherry nose.  Think George Washington & the cherry tree; “I cannot tell a lie.”

 

Dionysius Brewing Company

Guava Paradise 7.20%

A barrel-aged golden sour aged with guava and ginger

Arcadian 7%

Open top fermented Saison with Masumoto fruit. – Two Variants – One with Peaches & the other with Nectarines.

 

Firestone Walker Brewing Company

Violet Underground 5.5

A cuvée was born from Somerset Wild, a newly minted Golden and Sunrise Raspberry ale, and Barrelwork’s blending warhouse, Cowbell. Proprietary yeast from both sides of the Atlantic, fresh local California fruit and French candied violet petals went into the cauldron. The resulting potion is bursting with ripe fresh fruit, a hint of violet petals and anchored by a funky yeast foundation. A quenching acidity and lively carbonation rounds out the collaboration. SLOambic 5.90%

American Wild Ale. For this vintage, fresh blackberries were added to Sour Opal, a beer matured up to 24 months in oak barrels, and then fermented using our proprietary blend of microflora for an additional four months.   Bursting with ripe berries and brambles, as well as hints of jam, the fruit gives way to a rustic funk and soft oak flavors, finishing with a mouth-watering acidity.  Bursting with fresh fruit aroma, we humbly present 2018 SLOambic.

Tammy 9.4%

An Idiosyncratic Wild Ale

To create the contents of this beer, Kyle & Kevin bound 2 barrels from Horus of cherry sour that had been resting in Buffalo Trace Rye Whisky Barrels, with beers from Cellador that had taken a long nap in a Four Roses Bourbon, Malbec, and Sherry barrels with marionberries, Malbec Grapes, and Black Raspberries. The result is a truly singular and potent potion, portraying a perfect imbalance of powerfully pungent flavors that pack a punch to your palate, and yet still complex enough to make you contemplate the meaning of life and the origin of the cosmos.
