Hey beer friends, Bine and Vine bottle shop just got in some real gems we’d like to share. If you are a Mötorhead fan, check out the Amplified Ale Works Mötorhead collab Born to Lose IPA. We also got one of the best made fruited sours in all of California in Firestone Walker BarrelWorks Bretta Rose. We haven’t forgotten you hop heads, get the fresh-out-the-tank El Segundo Brewing Ka-Pau. Don’t go driving around hitting up the bottle shops, quit breaking your beer budget on trading, order from Bine and Vine and let them do the heavy lifting.
Amplified Ale Works Mötorhead Born to Lose IPA – Born to Lose is a Citra-forward, traditional West Coast style IPA. There’s Columbus in the boil, Cascade in the whirlpool, and then dry-hopped with Citra.
Firestone Walker BarrelWorks Bretta Rosé – Thirty miles north of Barrelworks lies the fertile Santa Maria Valley. Its warm days and cool marine layer-fed evenings allow for a cornucopia of fruits and vegetables to be grown in its rich soil. One of Santa Maria’s crown jewels is locally grown raspberries. We jumped at the opportunity to ferment fresh local raspberries with one of our Barrelworks creations. Behold Bretta Rosé! A low-alcohol Berliner Weisse style ale, acidified and matured in French oak puncheons for 8-12 months, is the foundation for this gem. Add 1000 lbs. of fresh raspberries, allow a secondary wild fermentation for 4 more months and voila (!), we have a crisp effervescent concoction, bursting with raspberry perfume and flavor, a rosé color, bracing acidity, and a clean and refreshing finish.
El Segundo Brewing – Ka PAU! – Those Kiwi’s (the people, not the fruit) have been sending us some awesome hop varieties. Ka-PAU! – Hopman blasts you with a healthy dose of Rakau in this West Coast/NZ India Pale Ale. Stay vigilant Hopman, and protect us from crystal malt.
