One of the side benefits of Firestone Walker bringing brewers to Los Angeles for their Pils & Love Fest is that those same brewers are in town and bring more beer with them.
Case in point: Highland Park – Chinatown will have two special events that might have you riding the Gold Line two evenings in a row….
Thursday July 26th is a Mixed Culture tap takeover with our friends visiting from out of state as well as some California locals.
Friday July 27th is our Lager tap takeover with Burial Beer featuring the same group of rad breweries from the night before.
Looks like AleSmith will be canning more this year. And instead of heading into the obvious direction of hops, they are heading towards a “spezial” German.
Will this year bring more pils into the world?
We return, again, to the former East Germany and the Thomaskirche Brewery and restaurant. Great and beautiful churches abound in Germany and it is great to have a beer out on the patio and gaze upon the imposing church walls.
Just sit back and enjoy the traditional German varieties of pils, weissbier and schwarzbier.
Our southwestern swing continues with Austin’s Live Oak Brewing. They focus on authentic European style beers like….
Primus – Winter Seasonal
Our new winter seasonal, Primus (pronounced, “pre moose”), is a dark, rich German-style Weizen beer (beer made with wheat malt) fermented with a very particular strain of brewers’ yeast that gives this beer it’s unique spicy and fruity character. The unfiltered beer has the characteristic clove and banana flavors familiar to HefeWeizen drinkers but with a darker and richer roasty malt character that is typical of some German-style Bock beers. The alcohol strength will be around 8%. Available November – January
Liberation Ale – Winter Seasonal
With about 6.0% ABV, this one will surely warm the ol’ gullet during a cold central Texas winter – both days! Our India Pale Ale (IPA) is light in color and strong in hop character. Dry hopping with Cascade hops, gives this winter favorite a delicious citrus note reminiscent of a Texas Ruby Red. Yes, it’s warming but you don’t need to be huddled around the furnace to enjoy this one! IPA fans really love this ale during a beautiful Texas winter on the porch or indoors.
