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.”
I don’t venture south of L.A. County often as I should in person or on this blog. So to remedy the last half, cheers to Noble Ale Works as they have reached anniversary # 10.
This will be a ticketed event with no “day of” tickets sold which means you best head over to the website to pick yours up if you want to celebrate with the royal crew on March 23rd.
Coming Sunday August 12th….
To me, craft beer in L.A. has always had Blue Palms around but it is still only 10 years young. Raise a toast and head to Hollywood to ring in their next year of beer.
