The Avocado is Back

One of the running jokes over the past few months has been, What Day is It? I had that same sense of time displacement when I heard that the Angel City Avocado Ale is back. Now usually, that means more green than a St. Patrick’s Day at the DTLA brewery as people line up to have guacamole and more. This year will be a more virtual Avocado toast.

Featured Review – Avocado Ale from Angel City

It takes guts to use an ingredient that is in high demand and short supply and is thus expensive but Angel City has come back with multiple versions of their yearly Avocado Ale. Here is my review of the basic 16oz canned version…

Maybe this is the beer equivalent of avocado toast?  Pours a medium yellow color. Lots of grain character.  Neither the taste of avocado or honey comes through but the consistency of both is there.  This is very silky and almost oily. No cilantro or lime at all.  That could use to be amped up.  In, the end, this is a pleasant beer to have alongside something with wilder flavors as a counterpoint.

‘Cado 19

Avocado August is almost upon us.

Angel City Brewery keeps upping their game with this year’s (4) avocado ale variants:

The day will feature specialty pours including:

Tinned Avocado

With one canned beer under their belt, Angel City is moving on to their second. And it has to be drunk fresh! And no, it is not an IPA.

It is….

…that’s right. You can take a 16oz can of Avocado Ale to your next summer BBQ, or to the beach or hiking. Basically anyplace you can take guacamole.

Holy (not yet) Guacamole

Now, I am not a fan of avocados or guacamole but the Avocado Ale from Angel City is actually very interesting. And for the 4th year the DTLA brewery will be celebrating with an all-day ‘cado event.

And $1 from every Avocado Ale will go to support “The Ron Finley Project and their goals of transforming our food deserts in to food forrests!”
