Craftsman Brewing Peachy Keen (Drink of the Week)

Craft Beer Los Angeles

Craftsman Brewing founder Mark Jilg brews Peachy Keen with prized stonefruit.

L.A.’s craft beer scene still has more to give, as evidenced by new places like Brews Brothers Craft Beer & Artisan Eats, a beer bar with Belgian-inspired food from brothers Billie and Joey Anderson in the NoHo Arts District. The longtime beer pros took over a martial arts studio earlier this year and completely transformed a brick-walled building with curved wooden rafters. The brothers rotate 42 taps. Billie noted, “It might not be a beer we drink, but it’s a good representation of that style.” That said, Craftsman Brewing Peachy Keen is definitely a beer they’d drink, and so should you.

The seasonal 8.3% ABV beer is a new fall classic from Craftsman Brewing founder Mark Jilg, a Belgian-style saison called Peachy Keen breweed with prized Masumoto Family Farm peaches and nectarines. The amber-hued beer ages for two years in oak foeders (massive barrel), yielding a beautifully funky beer with bright acidity and a sweet-tart finish.
