Sean Suggests for February 2022

This month, heading into lighter beers. Even the over 7% choice is guava-fied putting it into more refreshing territory. To either ease out of big barrel-aged beers or into beer after a month off.

Westmalle Extra – 4.8% – “Golden blond ale, refreshing, loaded with flavor, fairly light-bodied.”

All Season Brewing Are We There Yet? IPA – 6.7% – the new IPA project for the Mid-City brewery.

Figueroa Mountain Guava Point Conception IPA – 7.2% – “One of our favorite IPAs amped up with fresh guava.

Sleek New Design

This month, All Season Brewing unveiled their 16oz label designs….

They don’t scream automotive but the names and design look very 60’s mod car design. I like the prominent top of can placement and color variations of the logo. Simple but cool. The award winning Bullitt green cans will look good in the refrigerator.

2nd Visit – All Season Brewing

I have swung by All Season Brewing a couple of times since they opened but I finally went inside for the first time!

Chicas Tacos has a cool set-up. Nice wide open space.  Skee Ball though, what is it good for? The big cut-outs of brewer Erick Garcia which are fun to see and the tank farm behind the bar is cool as well.

I also like the green and wood accented bar.  They could probably lean more into the car theme with decorations as they do with the beer names. Though they did have a car repair show on TV.

Interesting to see which beers have kicked.  Is it due to small amounts or it was popular on Friday.  English Pale Ale, hazy pale, hazy IPA and an amber lager.

Cold Start – CIPA – yellow/orange in color.  Crisp and piney.  A bit 1D to me. But it does hit the CIPA mark.

Bullitt – had once before the awards started rolling in. Big piney bitterness.  Touch of citrus sweet as well. Has an old-school feel to it.
