818 is 6

Continuing with numerical fun. 8/21/21 at 2pm is the start of 818 Brewing‘s 6th Anniversary party. This year held in the parking lot. More details on the social media.

Side note – the Glendale Trader Joe’s has been carrying 818 beers so you can check out there line.

6 MacLeod

Now, to my eye, the six logo on the anniversary beer for MacLeod Ales looks a lot like the Trailblazer logo but with a bit lopped off. So I already like it. Factor in that this is a big Imperial Stout and I am hooked. Might make a trip to pick-up one of these boxes.

Pac 6

3 weeks from today, Pacific Plate is going to go all Tiki for their 6th anniversary because 6 is the tiki year, right? Follow their social media streams to make sure you get all the details.

6 on the Sunset


The numbers keep getting bigger in the Los Angeles beer world as Sunset Beer Co., purveyor of to-go and draft beers is turning six.

Obviously this calls for a 6th Anniversary Party which will be November 4th. There will be snacks and food and a taplist that will more than likely include some real gems. Follow their social media for further news.

Enegren is Turning 6


In about three weeks time, Enegren Brewing will throw a party celebrating their 6th anniversary on Saturday, August 19 at 11 AM – 10 PM

And if you like rum, you will be pleased because they are releasing a special anniversary beer – a Rum Barrel Aged Dopplebock.

There will also be live music and food from Disgustingly Delicious and Baby’s Badass Burgers.

(Six)montane

The anniversaries just keep getting bigger. Cismontane Brewing of Santa Margarita (& Santa Ana) will celebrate 6 years of brewing in Orange County and once you buy your tickets you will be able to get 8oz pours of rare beers as well as all your favorites on May 7th starting at Noon.

6 Years of Darts Away

Capture
Break out your hashtags and tastes for hops when Tony’s Dart Away goes all #TDA6th starting tomorrow and going through the weekend.

There will be the near ritualistic hourly tappings (between 10am-7pm) of special & rare California-brewed beers + the return of a brand new* Darts Away IPA that you can get in a commemorative pint glass for sale for $10 (which includes a pour of the anniversary hop bomb)!

For those Sour Cottontails out there, Sunday will be “Sour Easter” with each hour bringing a new sour.

*For those who didn’t want to drink an SABInBevMiller IPA, do not fear. Eagle Rock Brewery has stepped up to brew the Tony’s IPA this year.

Review – Two 6th Anniversaries

Happy Anniversary to Eagle Rock Brewery. It is hard to imagine that I have been to 6 parties to celebrate another year of beer from my closest brewer.

ERB shares a birthday with Ladyface (who had their own party going on in Agoura Hills) and the pair both brewed up a Belgian Golden Strong Ale for the day and you could tell both were related but they each had different notes to them.

By a slight margin, I would take the Zes from Eagle Rock over the version from Ladyface, which I thought was a touch too sour and a little heavier on the palate.

What the future holds will be fun to watch unspool. I never would of thought that ERB would have a restaurant even just 2 years ago but now they are a mutli-location spot and growing.
