Two anniversaries to alert you to so that you can raise a glass or buy in celebration of. Mostly because parties are probably not in the cards.
Trustworthy Brewing in Burbank turns five this month
Angel City in the Arts District turns ten this month.
So find their beer, take a pic and wish them both happy birthhdays!
Sunset Beer has reached the double-digit mark and their 10th Anniversary Party will be on Saturday, November 6th.
Here are the details from the Echo Park beermonger, “We expect that our Anniversary Beer “Down Sunset” from Los Angeles Ale Works will be canned AND available at the party. We’ll have a fun and unique tap list ready to go for the event, so we hope you’ll join us in a big “Cheers to Ten Years of Beers” on November 6th. Keep in mind – you will need to be FULLY vaccinated to enter bars in L.A. after November 3rd, so be mindful and prepared for that! Have a great weekend!”
Institution Ales has released a new Pale Ale brewed in with the TOaked Homebrewers Club to honor their 10th Anniversary of brewing at home. (BFH)
Here is how the Camarillo brewery describes it, “This beer is a double-dry hopped Pale Ale featuring Nugget, Mosaic, & Cryo Pop. Cryo Pop is a proprietary hop blend by Yakima Chief hops that’s super tropical and citrusy.”
No tension, just Ten as in Zehn at Enegren Brewing. August 21st
“It has been 10 years since we started this journey in a 1000sqft a 3 barrel brewery serving only 4 taster glasses of beer to each confused individual that stumbled upon our door. Things have changed! And it’s time to celebrate! Mark your calendars and grab your lederhosen because we’re throwing an epic ZEHN FEST complete with German Music, German Food, a ferris wheel and our 10TH Anniversary Zehn Fest Pilsner served in one of a kind Maximilian Steins!”
Beachwood Brewing will be hitting the ten year mark this year and on July 17th, there will be new beers to celebrate this now multi-location stalwart in the Los Angeles brewing scene. Keep an eagle eye out for more details on their social media channels.
El Segundo Brewing has made many a fine IPA but they may be eve better at brewing up Triple IPAs. Which is why the biggest of their Postcard series is bears the 10th anniversary mantle.
Now that I think about it, maybe the T in TIPA stands for tenth.
I bet that if the 10th anniversary had fallen in 2020 that would have been hard. Thankfully Smog City gets to celebrate this milestone with a better semblance of reality as well as a new special IPA. Plus, you know they will be finding some special goodies from the cellar to offer.
With Eagle Rock celebrating Mardi Gras style for their 10th anniversary tomorrow, I thought I should give a review of their numbered IPA.
Number 10 pours a bright orange. Very West-Coast style which I am either buying more or seeing more of on shelves. Getting pine and Cascade Hop notes. Some tiny grapefruit flavors come in as well. Aroma is pith, citrus rind in character. Earthy on the back with a little bit of ABV burn.
Two things to know for next year’s big 10th anniversary party.
- The anniversary beer is named Ten and is a West-Coast IPA
- The color scheme should hint that this is a Mardi Gras themed party.
Head over to the Eagle Rock website for ticket information.
…but I will try this beer. Here is how Ladyface Ale Companie describes this anniversary beer, “we created an ale that reflects those years – big, strong, boozy, and a little bittersweet. “Atlas Shrugged” is a blend of our barrel-aged Imperial Stout and Belgian Barleywine, with dry oak tannins meeting bittersweet chocolate and rum raisin. An ABV of 11% may lead you to deep, complex thoughts.”
