(Buellton, CA) – The holidays are a time for family and celebrations. So it isn’t any surprise that the Dietenhofer family, owners of Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company, celebrate their company’s anniversary the Saturday after Thanksgiving each year. It’s the perfect day to bring families together to celebrate the Santa Ynez Valley and the craft beer community. This year their 5th Anniversary party and bottle release will be held on Saturday, November 28, 2015 from 1:00 PM to 9:00 PM with food, contests, specials, a bottle release and live music at their flagship brewery and taproom located at 45 Industrial Way in Buellton, California.
“Five years have flown by. Thanks to the support of our patrons and our customers’ loyalty to our beer, we have grown tremendously in such a short period of time,” exclaims President Jaime Dietenhofer. “We hope the next five years will include just as many exciting endeavors as the first five. We can’t wait to celebrate with all of our supporters this year on November 28th.”
As part of the anniversary, Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company releases a special barrel-aged 22-ounce bottle of beer to commemorate the occasion. This year they will be releasing a doppelbock aged in rum barrels available for purchase by the bottle, glass or special Anniversary Gift Pack (2 glasses, an anniversary t-shirt and bottle). Eight-ounce pours are $10.00 or you can “steal the glass” for an extra $2.00. Fig’s 5th Anniversary Doppelbock has a rich, malty sweetness that melds with a subtle toasted character from traditional Munich malts. Complex notes of caramel and toffee pair with vanilla aromas from barrel aging to create a beer worthy of celebration. To accompany the hefty 12-percent alcohol-by-volume, Fig will be offering food throughout the event. Georgia’s Smokehouse will sell their famous barbeque from noon to 3:00 PM and Giorgio Curti’s Hooked on Meat will sell porketta (pork belly) sandwiches and brisket or vegetable sliders from 3:00 PM to 9:00 PM.
The 5th Anniversary event schedule is as follows:
1:00 PM- 3:00 PM Mark MacCay (Country and Blues singer/songwriter)
3:00 PM- 4:00 PM Keg & Stein Holding Contests
4:00 PM- 6: 00 PM OneTwo Tree (Roots, Rock & Island-Style Reggae)
