Three Weavers is leaving their latest beer unfiltered. A Thousand Times Yes is an unfiltered DIPA from the Inglewood brewery. How many times will you say yes to this hoppy creation?
For many LA beer fans, there first exposure to Beachwood Brewing and their now enlarged world of IPAs was either Melrose or Laurel.
And now Laurel has resurfaced in brightly festooned cans again. Grab a 4-pack to relive the early days
So more latte than coffee IPA it seems.
PS – I recently opened a can and it is fantastic. Big coffee. Big latte and still the hops show through too. Pick one up.
Readers of the blog know that I am an appreciator of fine label design and that I am wary when a brewery creates a a new brand.
Those two worlds collide with this very strange hazy IPA label from Van Nuys Beer Co. (a MacLeod Ales younger sibling).
The shopping cart plus the fog are creepy and then the yellow dots add a layer of modern art meets Brouwerij West to leave an overall eye catching label. I half expect a grocery bag to be pushed by the wind into the frame and then gust away.
If you missed the first go round, Burnin’ Daylight Brewery is re-releasing their 2nd Anniversary beer. According to the brewery, Burn 2 is a West Coast style IPA “hopped with Strata and Citra”.
Got another Pink Boots beer to alert the fans about. This time it is Pandora Wakes from the Eureka Brewing Co. Gotta make sure you try all of the collabs that have been showing up unless you are not a completist.
The great thing about niche style breweries like Enegren Brewing is that it allows the guest brewer to play in a different sandbox than normal. Beachwood does its fair share of styles but a Dortmunder is a little brewed style that is welcome to see and probably design a recipe for. And it would pair nicely with their BBQ too.
I think that I would need a DDH Hazy if I ever came face to teeth with the scary creature on the latest hoppy release from King Harbor Brewing. Now that I look at those teeth more, maybe this should be a TDH.
A big beer is coming our way soon from Ogopogo Brewing, “A little late for the season, but we decided to make a Triple IPA. Prolly around April 14th we will be releasing ‘Yacumama’ Hazy IIIPA 10.5% with Citra, Azacca, Amarillo, Chinook, Pineapple, and Coconut.”
