Ale Apothecary El Cuatro – EL CUATRO is made of barley and caramel malts co-mingling with lactobacillus and brettanomyces. After brewing and conditioning, the beer is transferred into brandy & whiskey barrels to age for over a year during an extended Brettanomyces Lambicus fermentation. Prior to bottling, the beer is blended with a small portion of year-old SAHALIE. The only hops added to this beer arrive from the aged SAHALIE. The brandy barrels and wild yeast fermentation give EL CUATRO a plum & cherry fruitiness balanced by the slight toast of the malt body.
Jolly Pumpkin/Holy Mountain – Smashed, Grabbed, and Hop Dusted -Smashed, Grabbed, and Hop Dusted is a 6.5% ABV, Sour IPA and our first collaboration with Holy Mountain Brewing Company out of Seattle, Washington. Brewed with four hop varieties and seven different malts. Smashed, Grabbed, and Hop Dusted is full of passion fruit, pear and citrus notes rounded by a lightly sweet, honey like malt body. Distinctive Jolly Pumpkin funk resonates throughout as the result of being laid in oak for 7 months.
El Segundo Bursted Single Hop Series – Citra – We are super excited to announce our “Bursted” Single Hop Series – which will be IPAs hopped with a single hop varietal. Traditionally beers are bittered by adding relatively small amounts of hop at the beginning of the boil – this results in the firm bitterness that IPA fiends have come to love. A somewhat newer approach often referred to as “bursting” employs the technique of adding huge amounts of hops very late in the boil, or even after the kettle has been turned off. The large volume gives ample bitterness – and the added bonus of MASSIVE flavor components. This series is all about exploring what each hop adds to both the bitterness and the flavor of the beer when employed only in late additions with no early additions. The malt bill will remain consistent throughout the series, and we promise you.. it won’t get in the way.
