imageFrom Lompoc:

Do the holidays make you surly as a polar bear named Mittens? Then preserve holiday cheer at the Lompoc Brewing Holiday BEER Extravaganza on Tuesday, Nov. 29 from 4pm to 11pm at Sidebar (3901 N Williams Ave). This year’s annual holiday release lineup includes seven winter beers, including:

Blitzen: A bright straw-colored holiday favorite dry hopped with Mandarina Bavaria hops, orange peel and cinnamon. The hops and orange peel combine for a citrusy aroma and flavor while the cinnamon gives a slight spice at the back end. 4.6% ABV

Jolly Bock: A lager brewed with a generous amount of Munich malt to develop the deep amber color and rich malt flavor. The malty flavor is balanced with a spicy hop bitterness. 7.3% ABV

8 Malty Nights: A Chocolate Rye beer featuring a roasted chocolate flavor and a sweet finish. It is dark brown in color and lightly hopped with English style hops.  Raise a glass and toast, L’chaim, to Porltand’s first Hanukkah seasonal. 6.5% ABV

C-Sons Greetings: A deep copper-colored imperial IPA brewed and dry-hopped with all seven "C" hops for a piney, citrusy, floral and resinous aroma. Offers a full hop flavor with a rich caramel malt finish and an endless developing hop presence. 8% ABV

2013 Old Tavern Rat: A dark amber-colored barleywine that was aged for two years prior to its release. It has a strong bitterness that is balanced with the sweetness of caramel and toffee flavors. 9.4% ABV

Cherry Christmas: This hazy Belgian-style farmhouse ale is slightly pink in color coming from the addition of tart cherries added at the end of fermentation. It is dry and crisp, with plenty of fruitiness complemented by a spicy bitterness. 6.5% ABV

Brewdolph’s Revenge: A Belgian-style red ale aged in Bourbon barrels on sour cherries for nine months. 6.5% ABV.

Sidebar is for ages 21+. The above holiday beers will also be tapped at all other Lompoc pubs beginning November 30th.
