Southern California craft beer producer Evans Brewing Company has announced the upcoming fall release of two new beers, “Oktobeerfest,” the company’s Oktoberfest style lager, and “OG Kolsch,” its Kolsch style ale.
Oktobeerfest (5.3% ABV, 24 IBUs) and “OG Kolsch” (5.2% ABV, 14 IBUs) will both be available at The Public House, the company’s first branded restaurant and tasting room, expected to open in the coming weeks in downtown Fullerton, California, as well as in other retail outlets within the company’s distribution footprint. Specific release dates for Oktobeerfest and OG Kolsch will be updated at www.evansbrewco.com.
“We look forward to introducing Oktobeerfest and OG Kolsch to craft beer consumers in the coming weeks,” said Chief Operations Officer Evan Rapport. “Customers at The Public House will be among the first to have the opportunity to taste these styles as part of the larger selection of Evans Brewing products we will have at the restaurant.”
In early September, Evans Brewing announced the re-release of two of the company’s most honored beers, The Original and the Breakfast Black Pilsner, which will also be available at The Public House.
The Original (4.6% ABV 15 IBUs) is a pilsner that was the first beer developed under the Evans name. It has been honored with 5 major beer awards, including a silver medal at the 2012 World Beer Cup, and was rated 92 points by Draft Magazine. One of Evans’ most popular releases, The Original is described as agile, flavorful and refreshing – a beer built for everyday drinking. The Original will be sold in kegs within Evans Brewing’s distribution footprint.
The Breakfast Black Pilsner (4.8% ABV 24 IBUs) has been honored with 7 major beer awards, including being named the World’s Best Dark Lager at the 2013 World Beer Awards. Despite its dark color, the full bodied flavor paired with a gentle finish makes it a popular choice for any season. Initially available in kegs, The Breakfast Black Pilsner, rated 84 points by Draft Magazine, is expected to be available in 22 ounce bottles towards the end of the year.
In addition to the new and re-released beers, Evans Brewing currently produces 4 core year-round packaged products, Pollen Nation Honey Blonde Ale, The KrHOPen India Pale Ale, Oaklore Brown Ale, and ChocōLatté Chocolate Porter.
