Surf Brewery Releases Surfer’s Point Springtime Bock
(Ventura, CA) – Surf Brewery, a small commercial craft brewery, open since 2011, with an onsite tasting room and homebrew shop, announced that they are releasing the second in their Seasonal Lager series for 2015, called Surfer’s Point™, and named after the local surf break near the Ventura pier. Released just a few days after the first day of spring, Surfer’s Point™ Springtime Bock comes in at 7% ABV, 33 IBU and 9 SRM.
Brewed in the Bavarian style of a Maibock to celebrate the coming of spring; this beer showcases a restrained malt character with just enough hops to balance out the slight sweetness from the malt with a subtle hint of fresh flowers and spice. The clean lager fermentation allows the high-quality German malts and domestic hops to shine. The perfect beer to help pass the time as the winter swells give way to the spring calm. Pair with a grilled artichoke with garlic aioli and spring sausage.
Next up for late summer release will be a thirst quenching Pilsner; 4.6% ABV, 40 IBU and 3.5 SRM. Brewed to the German style of a Pilsner this beer will feature domestically grown hops with noble lineage balanced against a pleasant graininess from the continental European pilsner malt. The clean lager fermentation and light body make this truly a quaffable beer while still very flavorful. Enjoy this beer by itself or with crispy fish tacos with a side of chips and salsa.
Surf stopped producing lagers back in 2012 because of capacity constraints that were resolved last summer with a much needed expansion. Head dude and co-founder Bill Riegler mentioned, “Our lagers have always been a big hit at Surf because their smoothness is so approachable for so many people. Our first in the series, Amber lager was a huge hit at the brewery, and on draft, and sold out very quickly. The Springtime bock is a little stronger and more flavorful and many of the Amber fans are looking forward to it!”
