New Taps for ACBW

For our continuing celebration of American Craft Beer Week we’re putting a new brew on tap. Yesterday we added something light and tart (Hottenroth from The Bruery) along with a barrel aged Russian Imperial Stout (something you might think inappropriate in this weather, but it’s Parabola from Firestone Walker). Today, we’re putting on something light and perfect to enjoy in during the warm weather: Cabrillo Kölsch from Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles. From their website:

First Brewed April 2013
AVAILABLE – Year Round
STYLE – Kölsch Style Ale
OG/FG – 11.8 / 2.3
ABV – 5%
IBU – 30
MALTS – 2-Row, Malted Wheat
HOPS – Tradition, Opal

Our quest for the perfect summer beer led us to one of our favorite, but lesser known styles—the Kölsch. The style originated in Cologne, Germany and is hybrid, drifting somewhere between an ale and a lager. Ale yeast is fermented at cooler temperatures, much like a lager, to create a clean, refined, smooth lager finish. German Tradition and Opal hops lend the beer a slightly peppery aroma and flavor, lightly accented by a citrus aroma.

Come in and cool off with us today with a nice cold craft beer, and while you’re here, help us to cheer on the LA Kings as they face the Anaheim Ducks in some Game 7 hockey!

Kings v Ducks – Game 7

The Kings’ 2-0 lead against the Anaheim Ducks slipped to 2-3, but they came back tied the series at 3, forcing a game 7 in Anaheim tonight at 6:00. The winner tonight will advance to the NHL Western Conference Finals, while the other team will start planning their tee times for the coming weeks. Join other Kings fans as we cheer on the Kings in their pursuit of the Stanley Cup!

As you join us for the game, remember that while we don’t serve any food, but you’re always welcome to bring in your own grub, order something in, or grab a sandwich from Village Greens Market next door to us (open until 9:00). The puck drops at 6:00, but be sure to arrive early enough to grab your favorite seat.

Also remember that during the Kings’ playoff run for the Stanley Cup, you’ll get 10% off all craft beers ordered during the game; draft, bottles, and cans!

Go Kings Go!!
