When I get a press release that says “Beachwood BBQ & Brewing to Release….”, my ears perk up and I fire up WordPress because Julian does awesome work. So without further ado….

“Well craft beer fans… you asked for it and it’s finally here.
Beachwood BBQ & Brewing Tovarish Imperial Espresso Stout will be
released on Wednesday, November 30th at the brewpub in Long Beach.

One of Brewmaster Julian’s most highly coveted beers, Tovarish is a
bold Russian imperial stout brewed with a base of British Maris Otter
barley and heaping amounts of roasted barley and specialty malts. It’s
finished with a touch of blackstrap molasses along with espresso
brewed with the finest Arabian Mocha-Java coffee from our friends at
Peet’s. Tovarish is remarkably rich and complex. Savor the layers of
roast and dark fruits with every sip.

A lucky few might remember back to Julian’s homebrew days when he
brewed this incredible stout as a guest at Pizza Port Solana Beach.
It’s the same great recipe, but this time it’s been carefully crafted
on Julian’s 10 BBL system here at Beachwood in downtown Long Beach.

Starting at 6pm on 11/30 you’ll be able to grab your first pour at our
Tovarish Release Party. NOTE: Growler fills will be available ONLY AT
THIS EVENT. We’ll also have special menu items and Julian will be on
hand to talk about his brews. Tovarish Imperial Espresso Stout will be
available on draught only. 11.2% ABV
