BREWERY + COFFEE ROASTER COLLABORATIONS (in addition to one beer from each brewery’s core line-up)
The Bruery + Tierra Mia Coffee “Rice & Beans” is a beer inspired by coffee infused horchata. Notes of sweet rice, vanilla and cinnamon play with the bite of earthy, hand roasted coffee for a balanced, modern take on the Central American classic.
El Segundo Brewing Co. + LAMILL Coffee “Bourbon and Bliss: bourbon barrel aged Standard Crude American Imperial Stout blended with Cold process Bliss Espresso blend. About 6 parts to 1. Around an 8% beer, the characteristics of both blend together seamlessly. We will be putting the final blend together just the week before as to preserve as much of the coffee aromatics as possible. This is also our first barrel aged release, so we are super excited!”
Eagle Rock Brewery + Portola Coffee Lab Sour Joe: American Sour Ale with Coffee grown by José Wagner. Full bodied and complex, yet bright and refreshing, this collaboration explores a new direction in the marriage of coffee and beer.
•Aromas of cocoa, molasses, and warm spices with hints of dried fruit and berries…
•Flavors reminiscent of chocolate covered cherries with notes of toasted nuts, spicy oak and stone fruit…
•A clean, tart finish leaves your palate refreshed and ready to explore another sip…
Firestone Walker Brewing Co. + Intelligentsia Coffee “Parabajava is an ongoing series exploring the infusion of coffee into Parabola. This coffee lends espresso, roasty caramel, toffee, baker’s chocolate, molasses to the big rich character of Parabola. The complimentary flavors pair well with Parabola’s rich malt and smokey oak bourbon notes. Complex, smooth and seamlessly integrated, this beer is nothing short of amazing.”
Union Jack is an aggressively hopped West Coast-style IPA. Union Jack showcases exceptional dry hop character with stunning pineapple, citrus and piney aromas on the nose accompanied by honey-like malt aromatics. Double dry hopping brings bold grapefruit, tangerine and citrus flavors that are contrasted by pale malt sweetness to balance this intense brew.
Golden Road Brewing + Handsome Coffee Roasters Surfliner IPA with Handsome Coffee: “Inspired by the locally roasted coffee beans from our friends at Handsome Coffee Roasters, this special edition of our Surfliner IPA features San Adolfo beans known for their tart notes of blackberry and deep cherry with a touch of vanilla. Brewmaster Jesse Houck adds whole roasted coffee beans in the dry-hop to lightly infuse this hop-forward ale with light hibiscus-like aromatics and citrusy zing. The result is a complex yet balanced amalgamation of hops and coffee with a light malt backbone anchored by the stone-fruit and piney notes of Simcoe hops.”
Ladyface Ale Companie + Caffe Luxxe Redheaded Blue-Belly (10.7% ABV): “Sought-after for its singular rarity, the Redheaded Blue-Belly fills the landscapes of Los Angeles with its deep, rich call. The full-bodied characteristics of the Ladyface Blue-Belly Barleywine and Caffe Luxxe’s Testa Rossa espresso marry perfectly to create a well-balanced brew, allowing the toffee malt character of the beer and the woody, dark chocolate characteristics of the coffee to sing out. Each libation’s flavor potential is maximized separately, the Testa Rossa extracted using the unique cold-brewing process before blending with the Blue-Belly in sweet sylvan harmony.”
Monkish Brewing Co. + Lord Windsor Roasters Shaken Hips (Beer + Coffee Cocktail): Monkish’s Rosa’s Hips (Belgian-style dubbel brewed with Rose Hips) and Lord Windsor’s cold-brewed Rwandan coffee with lime peel, ginger, mint, and bitters
Smog City Brewing + Groundwork Coffee Chip Shot Coffee Porter (6.0% ABV) “We took our award winning Coffee Porter that has over 5 lbs per barrel of freshly roasted organic coffee and added orange peel, vanilla beans, and cinnamon sticks to create a decadent drink that reminds us of orange liqueur spiked chocolate truffles. Imagine drinking a chocolate orange”
Zoe Nathan Loeb (Huckleberry + Milo & Olive) Regier Farms Peach Breakfast Cake; Caramelized Onion and Gruyere Turnovers; Chocolate Peanut Butter Mini Cupcakes; Mini Almond Croissants; and Ginger Cookies with Oatmeal Stout Glaze
Crème Caramel LA Ube Bread Pudding French Toast with Coconut Crème Anglaise
