Lompoc
« on: November 18, 2009, 12:19:03 PM »
SEASONS GREETINGS!  The brewers have been as busy as elves preparing for the holiday season.  On Tuesday, Dec. 1 from 4 to 9 p.m., they'll hold their annual winter beer release party at the New Old Lompoc, 1616 NW 23rd.

Brewing special seasonal beers predates modern history and has its origin in the pagan celebrations of winter solstice. Designed to fend off the cold of a long winter night, winter beers are traditionally complex in aroma and flavor, big in body, and high in alcohol. This year, we've created a half- dozen different beers, because we know you've been extra nice!

Blitzen / Golden Ale
A refreshing, crisp golden ale, Blitzen is dry hopped in the conditioning tank with coriander, orange peel and Crystal hops, which give the beer a floral aroma and a slight spicy flavor.  5% ABV.

Brewdolph / Belgian Style Red
This Belgian style red ale features a malty and creamy body.  Brewed with the Belgian Ardennes yeast strain, it boasts a mild fruitiness and a spicy clove character.   7.9% ABV.

C-Son's Greetings /  Imperial Pale Ale
This is the popular C-Note's big brother.  It has a caramel malty body with an extremely intense hop profile.  Brewed with all seven of the "C" hops - Crystal, Cluster, Cascade, Chinook, Centennial, Columbus and Challenger - it has a piney, resiny flavor.  This is the only Lompoc holiday beer sold in bottles. 8% ABV.

Holiday Cheer / Porter
This porter has a malty body and a soft roastiness in the nose.  An addition of vanilla beans was added to the brewing process, giving the flavor a unique finish.  7.5% ABV.

Jolly Bock / German Style Bock
A dark, German style Bock with a super malty aroma and flavor, balanced by roastiness and a touch of hops.  7.9% ABV.

Old Tavern Rat Barley Wine / Barley Wine
A very intense strong ale with a malty body and plenty of caramel, dried fruit and roast flavors. This is the ideal beer to keep you warm on a cold winter's night.  9% ABV.
____________________________________________________________________

SAVE THE DATE... In addition to our half dozen beers we've brewed for the holiday season, we're excited to release Portland's first beer brewed for Hanukkah.  Called "8 Malty Nights," the chocolate rye was brewed on Nov.
10 by Brewer Sam Orlansky; his childhood friend, Rabbi Bradley Greenstein
from the Congregation Neveh Shalom blessed the mash and all the brewers
raised a glass of Manischewitz and toasted L'chaim. The beer will be released
on the first day of Hanukkah, Dec. 11, at the Lompoc Sidebar from 4 to 9 p.m.

Lompoc Brewing is pleased to release Portland's first beer brewed for Hanukkah - "8 Malty Nights" will be released on the first night of Hanukkah, this Friday, Dec. 11, from 4 to 9 p.m. at the Lompoc Sidebar, 3901 N Williams.

8 Malty Nights is a rich, dark ale made with chocolate malts and flaked rye. The Chocolate Rye was brewed by Lompoc brewer Sam Orlansky, who is Jewish and grew up in San Diego with childhood friend Bradley Greenstein.  Sam became a brewer; Bradley became a Rabbi with the Congregation Neveh Shalom in Portland.  Rabbi Greenstein was present at the brewery November 10 to bless the mash and join the brewers in a toast with Manischewitz.

Though not technically certified, 8 Malty Nights is considered kosher in that is has undergone the blessing and supervision by a Rabbi. Most beer is generally considered Kosher without special certification.

"Drinks such as wine and beer have always represented our partnership with the divine," Greenstein said at the blessing. "God gives us hops and grapes and grain and we make something even more beautiful from them."

The release party will also feature complimentary Jewish appetizers, including Sweet Noodle Kugel, Lookoumades (fried honey puffs) and Potato Latkas with Apple Sauce and Sour Cream.  Other beers on tap include Cherry Fechter Special, Bourbon Barrel Fermented Dark Side Porter, C-sons Greetings, Jolly Bock and Aslan Belgian Style Golden Ale.

We hope you will all join us as we toast L'chaim!

GET YOUR IRISH ON
Kick off St Patrick's Day early with the release party for Lompoc Brewing's Dagda Irish Ale. Join us at Lompoc Sidebar on Tuesday, March 16th from 4 to 9 pm for an Irish celebration, including complimentary corned beef sliders, a screening of the classic movie Darby O'Gill, and pints of Dagda Irish Ale, High & Dry Irish Stout, and rotating taps. There's no cover charge, just good times in a great location.
 

Dagda Irish Ale is a Strong Irish Red Ale that features a rich, malty body and underlying hoppiness. Lompoc uses a small portion of black malt and a four-hour boil to give Dagda its ruddy red color and sturdy body.
 
The beer is named after named after the "good god" of the Celts who was in important figure in Irish mythology. Tales depict the Dagda as a figure of immense power, armed with a magic club and associated with a cauldron. The club was supposed to be able to kill nine men with one blow; but with the handle he could return the slain to life. The cauldron was known as the Undry and was said to be bottomless, from which no man left unsatisfied. He also possessed Daurdabla, a richly ornamented magic harp made of oak, which, when the Dagda played it, put the seasons in their correct order; other accounts tell of it being used to command the order of battle.
 
ON TAP AT SIDEBAR
This Friday and Saturday at Sidebar, we're serving up Lompoc Sour Draft, our LSD brewed in
February of '08 and aged in Maryhill Vineyard Merlot barrels for two years, giving it an oak aroma and lots of cherry and berry flavors (6.9%); Saison The Beach, a light colored beer featuring candied ginger and dried peppercorns for a dry peppery finish with spicy, earthy notes (5.5%); Crazy Dave's Imperial Stout, pitch black color with hints of chocolate and coffee (8%); 2009 Le Chat Noir, brewed in February '09 with the Dutch Castle yeast strain, which gives off a slight acidity balanced with a dark fruit aroma and complex malt flavors (8.1%); High and Dry Stout, an Irish style dry stout with lots of roasted barley (5.1%); and Centennial India Pale Ale, our classic Northwest IPA brewed with crystal malts for a rich golden color and Centennial hops for a floral nose and sharp bitter finish (6%).
 
Sidebar is open every Friday from 4 to 10 pm and Saturday from 2 to 10 pm.  The intimate barrel lined room boasts a fireplace, leather couches, amazing beers and light snacks.

Join the Lompoc brewers in the release of their new "Steaming Cascade" California Common tomorrow, Friday, March 26 from 4 to 9 pm at the New Old Lompoc, 1616 NW 23rd Ave.  We'll be serving up pints of Steaming Cascade along with Thomas Fawcett Bitter, Old Tavern Mouse, Dagda and possibly Saison the Beach.  There will also be complimentary hors d'oeuvres!
 
Lompoc's Steaming Cascade California Common is copper colored with a frothy white head. Whole leaf Cascade hops put a Northwest twist on a California original. Fermented at 60 degrees with Bavarian lager yeast, Steaming Cascade finishes crisp and dry with a pronounced hoppiness. It weighs in at 5.1% ABV.
 
California common is an original American beer style, and one of the first hybrid beer styles. First brewed by immigrant pioneers who brought old world lager yeast from midwestern winters to the year round mild climate of Northern California, California Commons combine the best of both ale and lager beers, with fruity esters and a crisp dry finish.
 
After the party or on Saturday, head to Sidebar (Friday 4 to 10 pm, Sat 2 to 10 pm) where we'll be pouring:

Barrel Fermented Aslan - fermented in a white English oak barrel, this Belgian style ale has a golden color with a fruity flavor and a spicy clove finish. 7.6% ABV         

Blitzen - a light and refreshing blend of malt and hops brewed with Crystal hops, malted wheat, malted rye, allspice and tangerine peel. 5.8% ABV

Merlot Barrel Fermented Dark Side Porter - fermented in Maryhill Vineyard Merlot barrels for two months and then cellared for an additional two, it has a malty body with strong chocolate and oak flavors. 7.5% ABV

High and Dry Stout - an Irish style dry stout with lots of roasted barley. 5.1% ABV

Old Tavern Mouse - the baby brother of our barleywine Old Tavern Rat.  Both beers were brewed at the same time, but we used the last runnings from the Rat to create the Mouse. It was left at a higher temperature for three days, giving the beer its initial sourness.  The lower level of alcohol on this unique beer makes it extremely thirst quenching. 5.5% ABV

Condor Pale Ale - a clean, crisp well hopped ale with a pale orange color.  It's brewed with Ahtanum hops that have a mild aroma and flavor. 5.2% ABV

Drink Beer for a Good Cause? Helles Yes! 


What's more Portland than bikes and brews? Neighbors helping neighbors -- and all that Portlandness comes together when Laughing Planet Cafés, Lompoc Brewing locations and a number of other area brew pubs join together to pour Lompoc's Helles on Wheels as a benefit for the Albina Youth Opportunity School (AYOS). Each participating establishment will donate fifty cents to one dollar to the non-profit alternative school for every pint sold between now and June 12.
 
Lompoc originally brewed Helles on Wheels specifically for Laughing Planet Café's annual Cirque du Cycling event, an all day bike festival taking place June 12 on North Mississippi Ave.  Helles on Wheels is an easy drinking German-style pale lager that is golden straw in color with a floral aroma and a clean, crisp finish.  The beer will be featured in the Lompoc Beer Garden at Cirque Du Cycling.
 
When Lompoc Brewmaster Dave Fleming learned of Laughing Planet Café's associaton with AYOS, he and his fellow brewers decided they could raise even more funds for the school with donations from every pint sold for a three-week period, as opposed to focusing solely on the one day festival.
 
"Lompoc is big on helping neighborhood organizations, and raising funds for the AYOS seemed like a great way to give back to the North Portland community," explained Fleming.  "Plus, we loved the name Helles on Wheels!."
 
Cirque du Cycling includes The Grand Central Baking Family Ride, a bike parade and the country's only two-way criterium bike race. Attendees can set up lawn chairs along the route, or watch the action while enjoying a cold Helles on Wheels at the Lompoc Beer Garden, which opens at 2 p.m. on the north end of the street. Guests will also have the opportunity to join Eat Oyster Bar for race day gumbo and mint juleps at the same location. A second beer garden will be located at the south end of the street, next to Amnesia Brewing.

LOMPEIZER RELEASE PARTY/SON OF C-NOTE PREVIEW
This Saturday is the annual Bastille Day Celebration at N Failing and N Williams, and Lompoc is joining in the celebration with a beer garden featuring the release of our annually-awaited Lompeizer.
 
Join us from Noon to 6 pm in the Fifth Quadrant parking lot (3901 N Williams Ave) and enjoy pints of Lompeizer as well as a preview of Son of C-Note, our debut for the Oregon Brewers Festival.  It's Happy Hour all day with $1 off Lompoc beers and cocktails.
 
Lompeizer is Lompoc's tribute to American domestics.  Brewed with Pilsner malt and 30% flaked rice, the result is a pale straw colored beer that is highly drinkable and perfect for summer in Oregon.
 
Like its father, Son of C-Note is a hop masterpiece - if there's a hop whose name begins with "C," it's probably in this beer. Six additions of Chinook, Crystal, Centennial, Cascade, CT2, Challenger and Cluster hops make Son of C-Note register on the upper end of the hops scale. It was also double dry hopped after fermentation giving the beer a massive hop aroma. Great Western pale and crystal malts combined with flaked oats provide the malty backbone.
 
Take a beer break and head on over to the Pix Patisserie Bastille Day Celebration, a day/night long block party that honors the storming of the Bastille prison in 1789 that spurred the French Revolution.  There will be live music from local bands like Nice Nice and Dirty Mittens, a wine drinking 5K, Champagne sabering demo, dance off, and more. Did we mention the giant Bastille Tower made of cream puffs? Yes, you get to eat it!  For more info on the schedule of activities, visit www.pixpatisserie.com.
 
This is a FREE community event but in exchange they Pix asks that each attendee bring 2 or more non perishable food items for the Oregon Food Bank.  For each item donated guests will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win one of 100 gift certificates to Portland's best restaurants.

It's that time of year when it seems as though the rain may never stop here in Portland.  Escape the drizzle and warm up by the fire at Sidebar, Lompoc's cozy tasting room.  Located at 3901 N Williams Ave (just north of Pix Patisserie), we're open Fridays from 4 to 10 pm and Saturdays from 2 to 10 pm.  This weekend, we're serving up the following...



Bourbon Barrel Aged Monster LSD - A blend of our Bourbon Barrel Aged LSD and our Bourbon Barrel Aged Monster Mash, this beer has a roasted chocolate flavor with hints of Bourbon and oak (8.3% ABV);
 
Jolly Bock - This lager was 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 (7.8% ABV);

Franc'ly Brewdolph Belgian Red - Brewed specifically for last week's Holiday Ale Festival (and one of the People's Choice winners), this Belgian style red ale was brewed with the Belgian Ardennes yeast strain in October 2009 and aged in Cabernet Franc barrels for 13 months.  It was then blended in a tank with the 2010 Brewdolph.  It has a malty and creamy body, a mild fruitiness, and a spicy, oak flavor (7.6% ABV);

Barrel Fermented IPA - This is our Centennial IPA fermented in a white English oak barrel. It's brewed with Crystal malts for a rich golden color and Centennial hops for a floral nose and sharp bitter finish (6% ABV);     

 
Fresh Hop Harvestman Red - Brewed with 100 pounds of Crystal fresh hops, this beer is malty and full bodied with a deep, rich red color (6.2% ABV); and last, but not least,



C-Note Imperial IPA - To call C-Note hoppy would be an understatement.  It's brewed with the seven "C" hops (Crystal, Cluster, Cascade, Chinook, Centennial, Columbus, and Challenger) and pushes the bitterness limit to 100 International Bitterness Units (6.9% ABV).


We hope to see you this weekend, either at Sidebar or any of our four other pubs - Fifth Quadrant, New Old Lompoc, Hedge House and Oaks Bottom.  For more info, visit www.newoldlompoc.com.  Cheers!

Happy Thursday!
 
Tomorrow is the release party for Lompoc Maibock from 4 to 10 pm at Sidebar.  This traditional spring lager was brewed with German Pilsner, Munich and Vienna malts with a Bavarian lager yeast strain.  Pale orange in color, it features a malty sweetness and a kiss of Noble hops (8.4%).   
 

Also at Sidebar on Friday and Saturday, we'll be pouring C-Dog, a collaboration with the Lucky Lab and the last beer brewed on the old 5Q brew system.  There were 11 hop varieties used between the kettle and the dry hopping in the fermenter, making this beer a true hop monster (there are still a few bottles left of C-Dog, grab them at Fifth Quadrant, Sidebar or the Lucky Lab Hawthorne location); Merlot Barrel Aged Norman Invasion, a Biere de Garde from the 2010 Portland Cheers to Belgian Beers festival aged in a Maryhill Winery Merlot barrel for 9 months.  It's extremely dry with lots of oak, wine notes and a hint of sourness; Don's Bitter, brewed in honor of Don Younger with the finest quality Golden Promise malt and English Challenger and Fuggle hops.  A deep golden hue and an earthy, slight maltiness is delicately balanced by English hops; Kick Axe Dry Hopped Pale Ale, our tribute to the Timber's Army, is a  crisp, easy drinking pale ale dry hopped in the fermenter with Cascades for a huge hop aroma; and Alpha Blonde, brewed with Belgian Pilsner malt, aromatic malt and dextrin malt along with a proprietary blend of Noble hops and German Tettnang hops, then dry-hopped with New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops.  Golden hued with a pronounced tropical fruit aroma, the flavor is crisp and spicy with hints of clove.  Sidebar is open Friday 4-10 pm and Saturday, 2-10 pm and is located at 3901 N Williams, just past Pix Patisserie.


PTFC! We'll be showing Friday's Portland Timbers game against Philadelphia Union at Sidebar, New Old Lompoc, Fifth Quadrant and Oaks Bottom at 7:30 p.m.  Watch the game with a pint of our Kick Axe Ale or buy a 22 oz bottle for $5 apiece.  And remember, members of the Timbers Army 107ist get a discount when they show their 2011 Membership Card - beers are always $3.25 at the Lompoc main pubs (not Sidebar).  Anyone can join the Timbers Army, just show up at the games.  But if you want access to specials and discounts from local merchants, including Lompoc, you need to purchase a 107ist membership for $25.
 
On Saturday, you'll find us at the Sasquatch Brew Fest at the Eugene Hilton.  The festival will run from Noon to 10:30 pm and will showcase the vibrant Pacific Northwest brewing industry by offering an opportunity to taste unique craft beers chosen specifically by each brewery's head brewer.  New Old Lompoc brewer Zach Beckwith is sending Peregrine Imperial IPA - this hop bomb pours a medium orange color with a hoppy aroma reminiscent of tropical fruit and pine needles.  The flavor is massively hoppy but balanced by Golden Promise, Crystal and aromatic malts.  Admission is $10 which includes a commemorative glass and two taste tickets.  Additional taste tickets will be available for purchase.
 
Drink Local.  Drink Lompoc!

TGIF - and the sun is shining!  Join us today and tomorrow at Sidebar, where we'll be serving up Willy's Wheat, brewed strictly with Willamette hops.  This light, crisp wheat beer with a slight nutty flavor is a great beer for spring time; Merlot Barrel Aged Norman Invasion, a Biere de Garde aged in a Maryhill Winery Merlot barrel for nine months. It's extremely dry with lots of oak, wine notes and a hint of sourness; Lompoc Sour Draft, our LSD brewed in February 2008 then aged in Maryhill Winery Merlot barrels for two years.  This sour ale has an oak aroma and a lot of cherry and berry flavors; Centennial IPA, a classic Northwest IPA brewed with Crystal malts for a rich golden color.  Centennial hops provide a floral nose and sharp bitter finish; 1060 EZ Taxation Ale, a high gravity golden ale brewed with flaked corn.  It's deep golden color and aroma of corn grits complement the light body and flavor notes of cornbread and honey; and Oyster LSD, our LSD that sat on one pound of smoked Hama Hamas oysters from Washington for five days. Enjoy a smoky flavor with a sweet brininess from the oysters.  Sidebar is located at 3901 N Williams, just past Pix Patisserie. This weekend, Sidebar is open Friday 4-10 pm and Saturday, 2-10 pm, but read below for BIG NEWS!   
 
Okay, here's the BIG NEWS - we're expanding our Sidebar hours and menu!  Starting next week, Sidebar will be open Wednesday through Friday from 3 to 11 pm, Saturday from 2 to 11 pm and Sunday from Noon to 7 pm.  We'll now be serving the full Lompoc Fifth Quadrant menu, and adding outdoor table service on N Williams St.
 

Tonight we'll be at Zoo Brew at the Oregon Zoo starting at 5 pm.  Only in its fifth year, Zoo Brew has already become one of the most popular beer festivals in town. More than 20 breweries will be serving beer while guests enjoy music from the Main Stage.  Tickets are $35 at the door, which includes commemorative tasting glass & 10 tokens.  Lompoc will be pouring Kick Axe and Proletariat Red.
 
Next week, we'll be at the Portland Fruit Beer Festival on June 11 & 12 at Burnside Brewing.  The first annual Portland Fruit Beer Festival aims to open minds to the exotic possibilities that fruit beers can offer.  The festival will feature more than 20 different beers, including our own Sour Willy, a blend of five different beers that come together for a light, complex, slightly sour ale that is perfect for summer drinking.  Sour Willy is made up of two-month-old wheat beer (some of which was aged in a Bourbon barrel for the last six weeks), one-year-old sour cherry wheat ale, two-year-old gueuze, and four-year-old Merlot barrel aged Condor Pale Ale infected with Brettanomoyces.  The resulting beer has a subtle fruity aroma and a mellow cherry oak flavor. 
 
Coming up: On Tuesday, June 14, hang out with brewer Dave Fleming at the Brickhouse in Vancouver from 5-7 pm.  Friday, June 17 will be the Release Party at Sidebar for Heavens Helles, Bourbon Barrel Aged LSD and Sour Willy.  And Sunday, June 19 is Father's Day - we can't think of a better way to spend quality time with Dad than with a pint of Lompoc!

Hello Lompoc fans,  it's going to be a gorgeous weekend, perfect for sitting out on a patio or sidewalk and sipping some Lompoc beers...
 
Today and tomorrow from 3-11 pm at Sidebar, we're pouring Port Barrel Aged Maibock, brewed in January of 2009 and aged in Maryhill Winery Port barrels for over 19 months. It has a malty body with a deep mahogany color, a fruity aroma and a slightly sour finish; Pilzipa, a cold fermented ale that was brewed with all Pilsner malt and hopped like an IPA, hence "PILZIPA"; C-Note Imperial Pale Ale, brewed with the seven "C" hops (Crystal, Cluster, Cascade, Chinook, Centennial, Columbus, and Challenger) to push the bitterness limit to 100 IBUs; Upsetter Belgian Barleywine, which marries the dark fruit flavors and yeasty spiciness of Belgium's abbey beers with the chewy maltiness and heavy hopping of an American barleywine to create a truly unique tripple.  Featuring notes of raisin and plum with effervescent bubblegum notes and a noticeable hop presence; Living Proof Ale, a non-traditional Belgian Dubbel style using malted barley, corn, molasses and Cluster hops.  There are hints of licorice and tobacco  with a malty body and a dry finish.  Named after the famed Benjamin Franklin quote, "Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."; and Fool's Golden Ale, a light refreshing blend of Crystal hops and malted wheat for a great session beer.   
 
Friday at Sidebar from 3-11 pm is the release party for SaazAll Pilsner.  Dry hopped in the fermenter with strictly Saaz hops, this golden straw colored beer features a clean, bready maltiness and a spicy hop finish.  It will pour through the weekend at Sidebar, along with Bourbon Barrel Aged LSD, a deep mahogany strong ale crafted with seven specialty malts, then aged in bourbon barrels for 11 months and cellared for one more; C-Note Imperial Pale Ale; 2008 Monster Mash, an Imperial porter featuring strong chocolate and roast flavors with a touch of red fruit; Bob's Memorial Braggot, which is 2.25 parts mead to one part brown ale.  This was brewed in the summer of 2008 then blended and bottled in March 2009. Think of Bob Farrell when you're having one; and Proletariat Red, a deep, rich red colored Northwest Red ale that's malty and full bodied and reminds us that work is the curse of the drinking class!   
 

Once a year a brave group of racers convene on the daunting slopes of Mt. Tabor to test their metal to their mettle in the PDX Adult Soapbox Derby .  This year's event will take place Saturday, August 13.  Lompoc is a long-time sponsor of the event, and this year we've taken it up a notch.  We've made a very limited run of Kick Axe Soap Box Beer, our Kick Axe Dry Hopped Pale Ale with a special label.  You can find bottles at Sidebar and New Seasons.
 

The New Old Lompoc brewery will celebrate its 15 anniversary later this summer in a big way: 15 Beers for 15 Years!  A Northwest institution, the New Old Lompoc will host a party on August 20, the first official day of Portland Beer Week, serving 15 unique and specialty Lompoc beers in addition to its mainstay lineup.  Organizers anticipate nearly 30 different beers will pour throughout the day, including Saazall Pilsner, Pale Ryeder, two vintages of Old Tavern Rat, Vintage Batch 69, 2009 Pre Dawn Imperial Stout, a few barrel aged beers, additional vintages, at least one firkin, and many more offerings. The party will start at 11 am in the parking lot of the New Old Lompoc at 1616 NW 23 Ave.  In addition to the myriad of beers, there will be a cornhole tournament, live music, food specials and a toast to the memory of Don Younger.  There's no cover charge, just come and have fun!

At Hedge House, our monthly Pub Tales photo contest has kicked off for August. Visit Hedge House and find this month's featured photo, then create a story about the photo in about 100 words.  Email your story to lompocbrewing@newoldlompoc.com by Monday, August 29.  Congrats to July's winner, Mark Robben!

It's going to be hot, hot, hot this week in Portland - stay cool with a pint of Lompoc! We've got our Oktoberfest release party this Friday at Sidebar from 3 to 11 pm. More on that in a minute....   
 
First, here's what's pouring tomorrow & Thursday at our tasting room: Drunken Robin, our Condor Pale Ale fermented in Bourbon barrels with 35 pounds of sour cherries; 2007 Old Tavern Rat, a dark amber colored barleywine that was aged for almost a year prior to its release. It has a strong bitterness that is balanced with the sweetness of caramel and toffee flavors; Bourbon Barrel Aged Monster Mash, brewed in August 2009 then aged in Bourbon barrels for 11 months and cellared for an additional year. This Imperial Porter has a slight Bourbon aroma with chocolate and licorice flavors and notes of vanilla on the finish; Centennial India Pale Ale, a classic Northwest IPA brewed with Crystal malts for a rich, golden color and Centennial hops for a floral nose and sharp bitter finish; Living Proof Ale, a non-traditional Belgian Dubbel style using malted barley, corn, molasses and Cluster hops. There are hints of licorice and tobacco with a malty body and a dry finish; and Fool's Golden Ale, a light, refreshing blend of malted wheat and Crystal hops for a great balanced session beer.
 

This Friday, join us at Sidebar from 3 to 11 pm for our annual Oktoberfest
release party. Lompoc's Oktoberfest is a Marzen lager, pale orange in color with a clean malt flavor balanced by a touch of Perle hops.  A portion of the grain used was roasted in the oven at Lompoc's Fifth Quadrant, giving a slight biscuit flavor. The Oktoberfest release party will also feature complimentary appetizers like cheese and German sausages. If you're lucky, Jerry might make an appearance in his lederhosen!   
 

We'll also be serving 2007 Fresh Hop Harvest Man Red, brewed in September 2007 with 100 pounds of Crystal fresh hops. It is malty and full bodied with a deep, rich red color; 2008 Saazilla, a double Pilsner that features Czech Saaz hops. It is aggressively hopped with seven hop additions, and it is the perfect beer for a warm summer day; Centennial India Pale Ale; Batch 69 Baltic Porter, a strong, dark beer with hints of chocolate and black licorice that was brewed with a lager yeast for a much cleaner, smoother finish than a traditional porter; and Pale Ryeder, a rye pale ale brewed with Crystal hops and 30% rye malt. It has a golden color with a balanced malt flavor and a slight spiciness.
 
Stay cool this week. Drink Local. Drink Lompoc!

Today and tomorrow, we're pouring Oktoberfest, a pale orange Marzen lager with a clean malt flavor balanced by a touch of Perle hops.  A portion of the grain used was roasted in the oven at the Fifth Quadrant, lending a slight biscuit flavor to the beer; 2007 Fresh Hop Harvest Man Red, brewed in September 2007 with 100 pounds of Crystal fresh hops for a malty and full bodied ale with a deep, rich red color; 2008 Saazilla, a double Pilsner that features Czech Saaz hops. It is aggressively hopped with seven hop additions, and it is the perfect beer for a warm summer day; Centennial IPA, a classic Northwest IPA brewed with Crystal malts for a rich, golden color and Centennial hops for a floral nose and sharp bitter finish; Batch 69 Baltic Porter, a strong, dark beer with hints of chocolate and black licorice that was brewed with a lager yeast for a much cleaner, smoother finish than a traditional porter; and Pale Ryeder, a rye pale ale brewed with Crystal hops and 30% rye malt. It has a golden color with a balanced malt flavor and a slight spiciness.
 
Drink Local. Drink Lompoc!

It's a traditional Northwest fall day - a foggy morning that will lead to a beautiful afternoon! Sidebar will be open today from 4 to 10pm, but tomorrow we won't open until 6:30pm. Both days we're pouring Steaming California, a steam beer brewed with an American Pilsner yeast strain fermented at ale temperatures. It features a slight bitterness with a balanced body and is hopped with Cascades and Clusters; C-Note Imperial Pale Ale, brewed with the seven "C" hops (Crystal, Cluster, Cascade, Chinook, Centennial, Columbus, and Challenger) to push the bitterness limit to 100 IBUs; Voodoo Mild, our take on a traditional British Mild, featuring peat smoked malt and toasted barley flakes. It's medium-bodied with notes of chocolate and a hint of peat with subdued hop bitterness; A Por el Oro, our Fool's Golden Ale dry-hopped with jalapenos and black peppercorns. It has a golden color and leaves a slight heat on your palate; Bourbon Barrel Aged Dagda, our Irish Red Ale aged in Bourbon barrels for 11 months, then cellared for an additional month. It has a mahogany color and a cherry, oak aroma to complement the malty body and slight toasted oak flavor; and LSD (Lompoc Special Draft), a deep mahogany colored strong ale crafted with seven different specialty malts and six hop varieties. A touch of smoked malt gives it a complex aroma and incredible flavor.
 
Tonight is the reading for this month's Hedge House Pub Tales contest. Want to take part in October? On the first of every month, visit Hedge House and find the featured photo, then create a story about the photo in 100 words or so. Email your story to lompocbrewing@newoldlompoc.com. The last Wednesday of the month at 7pm, everyone is invited to gather to read their story - the winner will be announced that night. Even if you didn't enter, you're welcome to come hear some clever tales.
 
This Friday, Zach at New Old Lompoc will release his fresh hop beer, Crystal Missile. Grab a pint or two, then come to the release party for Monster Mash at Sidebar from 4 to 11pm. The lineup includes Monster Mash, an Imperial Porter featuring strong chocolate and roast flavors with a touch of red fruit; Flamingo, our Condor Pale fermented in Bourbon barrels with 35 pounds of sour cherries; 2008 Mon Cheri, a Belgian style golden ale brewed in January 2008, featuring a mild fruitiness and a complex spicy character; Bierz Brown, a dark brown ale with a malty body and strong chocolate and roast flavors; Steaming California, a steam beer brewed with an American Pilsner yeast strain fermented at ale temperatures. It features a slight bitterness with a balanced body, hopped with Cascades and Clusters; and, for the hopheads, C-Note Imperial Pale Ale. As with all of our release parties, we'll have complimentary appetizers from Chef Mike. Grab a couple of bottles to go on the way out for $5 apiece.

It's fall. The calendar told us this two weeks ago, but today we really felt it with the cold air. Man, do we need a beer!   
 
If you feel the same, join us this Friday at Sidebar from 4 to 11 pm for the release of our fresh hop beers - these are the beers that remind us why we love the fall season. We'll be serving Crystal Missile Fresh Hop Pale Ale, brewed with 100 pounds of wet Crystal hops direct from Sodbuster Farms. This beer is golden hued with a huge earthy hop aroma and crisp fresh hop flavor that dominates throughout. Brewer Zach used his Lompoc Hop Press method, resulting in the quintessential fresh hop beer.  We'll also be pouring Fresh Hop Harvest Man Red, brewed with 100 pounds of fresh Crystal hops. It's malty and full-bodied with a deep, rich red color.
 
As with all of our release parties, there will be free appetizers! We'll also be serving up Monster Mash, an Imperial porter featuring strong chocolate and roast flavors with a touch of red fruit; Bierz Brown, a dark brown ale with a malty body and strong chocolate and roast flavors; Franc'ly Brewdolph, a Belgian-style red ale fermented with the Belgian Ardennes yeast strain itwo years ago and aged in Maryhill Winery Cabernet Franc barrels for 13 months. It was then blended in a tank with last year's Brewdolph, resulting in a creamy and malty body, a mild fruitiness and a spicy oak flavor; and C-Note.
 
FYI, Sidebar will be closed this Saturday and Sunday for private parties, so you'll need to spend the weekend at the other Lompoc locations.

It's Halloween weekend, which means lots of parties are on the agenda. We long for the good old days, when we could grab a pillowcase and run from house to house, filling up on sugary goodness. It's kind of ironic that we teach our children not to talk to strangers, but taking candy from them is perfectly okay. Alas, we can no longer get away with trick or treating, but that's alright, we'll take beer over candy any day.
 
If costume parties aren't your thing, come to Sidebar today and Sunday (but not Saturday, we're closed). We're pouring Voodoo Mild, our take on a traditional British Mild featuring peat smoked malt and toasted barley flakes. It's medium bodied with notes of chocolate and a hint of peat with subdued hop bitterness; 2007 Old Tavern Rat, a dark amber colored barleywine that was aged for almost a year prior to its release. It has a strong bitterness that is balanced with the sweetness of caramel and toffee flavors; Bourbon Barrel Aged LSD, a deep mahogany strong ale crafted with seven specialty malts, then aged in Bourbon barrels for eleven months and cellared for an additional three; Dagda, a Pan-Gaelic Red Ale that has a malty body with caramel flavors and  a touch of smoke with a tart finish; Centennial India Pale Ale, a classic Northwest IPA brewed with Crystal malts for a rich golden color and Centennial hops for a floral nose and sharp bitter finish; and Monster Mash, our Imperial Porter featuring strong chocolate and roast flavors with a touch of red fruit.
 
Grab an early pint at Sidebar, then join Lompoc brewers Dave "Chowdah" Fleming and Zach Beckwith tonight from 6 to 8 pm at Hop Haven Beer Bar & Bottle Shop at 2130 NE Broadway. They'll be serving C-Note and Hoppy Red (a special one-off) on draft and Monster Mash, C-Note and Proletariat Red in bottles. Look for a mystery beer as well!
 
Also today, we've tapped a keg of 2010 Old Tavern Rat Barley Wine at the Horse Brass Pub in honor of its 35th anniversary. The anniversary celebration celebrates more than three decades of outstanding companionship and good times with a variety of special beers all week long. Head to the venerable watering hole and grab a pint to toast to the memory of Don Younger.
 
Follow the adventures of New Old Lompoc brewer Zach Beckwith on his blog at  www.lompocbrewing.blogspot.com - this week, he talks about cask conditioning and his current experiments with firkins.
 
Mark your calendar for the C-sons Greetings Release Party on Friday, November 11 from 4 to 11pm at Sidebar. This is one of the most anticipated beers of the year. But you've all been really good this year, so the Lompoc brewers have lots more in store: our Holiday Release Extravaganza will take place on Tuesday, November 29 from 4 to 10 pm at Sidebar with the release of Bourbon Barrel Aged C-sons Greetings, Cherry Christmas, Jolly Bock, Blitzen, Brewdolph, Holiday Cheer & Old Tavern Rat. Don't worry, we didn't forget Hanukkah - on December 14, we'll release 8 Malty Nights.

It's a gorgeous day in Portland, but rumor has it it won't last long. We'll be serving up great beer rain or shine! Join us at Sidebar today through Sunday as we pour Cherry Bomb, our Proletariat Red fermented in Maryhill Winery Port barrels with 40 pounds of sour cherries; 2011 Roggen Roll, a New World take on a traditional German rye beer using two different types of malted rye along with flaked rye to create the trademark spiciness and fatty mouthfeel; Rosemary Stout, our Sockeye Stout that sat on rosemary sprigs for five days, imparting a slight rosemary aroma with a licorice and chocolate flavors; Kick Axe Dry Hopped Pale Ale, a crisp, easy drinking pale ale that was dry hopped in the fermenter with Cascades for a huge hop aroma; Wee Lola, a collaboration brew with the Ladies of Lagers and Ales (LOLA). This strong Scotch Ale was brewed with four gallons of molasses and a small amount of peated malt; and our famed C-Note Imperial IPA.   

With much sadness, we are going to brew the last batch of beer at the New Old Lompoc Brewery. It has been 15 long years since we started;  back then, our fearless leader Jerry Fechter still had hair, as you can see from the photo from The Oregonian archives! The last brew, Lompocalypse Double IPA, will be brewed tomorrow starting at 11am.  Everyone who's been impacted by the New Old Lompoc is invited to come hang out and discuss the good, the bad and the ugly tomorrow between 11 am and 7 pm. The end of the world as we know it - better known as the Lompocalypse - will go out with a bang. We've got plans for the final week of the NOL taking place April 23 - 28, stay tuned for details.

Like oysters? Do you know where your oysters come from? Find out with the EaT: Oyster Bus. The EaT Oyster Bus will depart for a fun filled tour of Chelsea Shellfish Farms in Olympia, Washington on Saturday, April 7th. The bus leaves EaT at 9 am and returns around 8 pm, depending on how much fun you're having. $75 includes the bus, lunch, oysters & beer from Lompoc Brewing & Double Mountain. Sign up at EaT, 3808 N Williams Ave or call 503-281-1222.

This coming Monday, March 12 is the opening game of the MLS season! If you don't have tickets, then grab a pint of Kick Axe and come watch the game at Oaks Bottom, New Old Lompoc & 5Q - RCTID!

Rain got you down? Join us at Sidebar today & tomorrow (sorry, closed Sunday) as we pour Black Hole IPA, a Cascadian Dark Ale made from the homebrew recipe of our friend Tim Hohl from KPAM radio. It's dark as a porter but drinks like an IPA, finishing dry with plenty of back of the throat bitterness; 2011 Roggen Roll, a New World take on a traditional German rye beer using two different types of malted rye along with flaked rye to create the trademark spiciness and fatty mouthfeel; Kick Axe Dry Hopped Pale Ale, a crisp, easy drinking pale ale that was dry hopped in the fermenter with Cascades for a huge hop aroma; Batch 69 Baltic Porter, a strong dark beer with hints of chocolate and black licorice. It was brewed with a lager yeast, giving it a much cleaner, smoother finish than a traditional porter; 2011 Dagda, a Pan-Gaelic Red Ale that has a malty body with caramel flavors and a touch of smoke with a tart finish; and our famed C-Note Imperial IPA.   

Be sure to wear green tomorrow so you don't get pinched! New Old Lompoc & Oaks Bottom will both have corned beef and cabbage. 5Q will have corned beef and colcannon cakes (a mix of mashed potatos and braised cabbage). All pubs will have authentic Irish music on the stereo!

Next Wednesday, March 21, join us at Sidebar from 4 to 10 pm for a Scotch & Beer pairing. After extensive research, we've chosen to pair Balvenie Doublewood & Stout Out Loud, The Macallan 12 & Bierz Brown and Lagavulin & Kick Axe Dry Hopped Pale Ale. Taster trays will be available with all three pairings for $18.

Last Saturday, three dozen or more former brewers, customers and old friends showed up at The New Old Lompoc to share beers and stories of their times at the NOL. The gathering was the beginning of the end of celebrations for the venerable pub, which will be razed later this spring. Head brewer Dave "Chowdah" Fleming brewed Lompocalypse Double IPA, which will be served at the end of the world parties taking place the week of April 23 - 28. Thanks to beer writer John Foyston and Oregonian photographer Cornelius Swart for the photo of the friends who shared in the day.

Like oysters? Do you know where your oysters come from? Find out with the EaT: Oyster Bus. The EaT Oyster Bus will depart for a fun filled tour of Chelsea Shellfish Farms in Olympia, Washington on Saturday, April 7th. The bus leaves EaT at 9 am and returns around 8 pm, depending on how much fun you're having. $75 includes the bus, lunch, oysters & beer from Lompoc Brewing & Double Mountain. Sign up at EaT, 3808 N Williams Ave or call 503-281-1222.

We're bottling C-Note Imperial Pale Ale and Proletariat Red this week. Same beer, but new labels! These will debut when the beer hits the shelves. The new artwork is by the guys who brought you the updated Kick Axe logo - we think you'll really like them both.

Have a great weekend. Drink Local. Drink Lompoc!

It's a gorgeous day here in P-town, and all the Lompoc patios are waiting for you - come on by for a meal or some beers and bask in the sun.

We've also got some great beers on tap at Sidebar today only. Saturday we're closed for a private party, and Sidebar is no longer open on Sundays. These include...

Brewed with the Belgian Ardennes yeast strain, it boasts a mild fruitiness and a spicy clove character; Kick Axe Dry Hopped Pale Ale, our tribute to the Timber's Army; Heaven's Helles, a German style pale lager with a golden straw color.  It has a  floral aroma and a clean crisp finish; Danger Zone IPA, the latest in our rotating IPA series.

Happy Friday beer lovers! We're feeling a bit melancholy, as the wrecking ball demolished our New Old Lompoc yesterday; but we will rise up again next summer.

We've got some great beers on tap at Sidebar today & tomorrow, including Patrick Henry IPA, an orange hued IPA with additions of Centennial, Cascade and Liberty hops in the kettle. It was then dry hopped in the brite tank with Liberty hops, and features a floral aroma and a strong orange, resinous flavor; 2010 Bourbon Barrel Aged Dagda, brewed in February 2009 and aged in Heaven Hill Bourbon Barrels for a year; 2011 Bourbon Barrel Aged C-Sons Greetings, brewed in February 2011, aged in Heaven Hills Bourbon barrels for seven months and cellared for an additional six months. It has a deep copper color, strong oak aroma with caramel and resinous hop notes; Kick Axe Dry Hopped Pale Ale, a dark, straw to copper-colored brew that packs a big floral nose with notes of tropical fruit. The malt delivers a bright, mild caramel flavor with a mild note of green apple and the beer finishes with grapefruit bitterness that is clean and crisp; Amadeus Amber, a Vienna Lager brewed in the old school Austrian tradition. It is malty with subtle hints of chocolate and toasted malt, and has a smooth, slightly sweet body with a pleasantly dry finish; and Batch 69 Baltic Porter, a strong dark beer with hints of chocolate and black licorice. It was brewed with a lager yeast, giving it a much cleaner smoother finish than a traditional porter.

Welcome to our newest brewer, Josh Merrick, now happily brewing at the 5Q! He joined Bryan and Irena in brewing up organic Cluster Fuggles IPA the other day for the North American Organic Brewers Festival, June 29-July 1 in PDX. Hope to see you all there!

Other events coming up include a release party for a Belgian Rye Wit Collaboration with Migration Brewery. Migration will release the beer at their pub on May 31st, then we'll have our own release party at Sidebar on June 6 from 4 to 10 pm.

Next Friday, June 1, is Zoo Brew at the Oregon Zoo featuring live music, workshops, games and 60-plus ciders, beer and much more. We'll be serving up Kick Axe Dry Hopped Pale Ale and Proletariat Red. Then Saturday, June 2 is the Portland Rose Festival Starlight Parade, and our own Dave Fleming will be on the Oregon Brewers Festival inaugural float. Look for him under the giant Lompoc neon sign!

The Portland Fruit Beer Fest is June 9 & 10 at NE Burnside & 7th. We've created a beer for this year's festival called Bomb.com Cherry Ale that will be barrel aged, cellared and blended. The base is a pale ale that was fermented in barrels on top of tart cherries. These barrels were originally used to produce port by Raymond Vineyards, then used for Oregon whiskey by Big Bottom Whiskey, then were brought to Lompoc. You can read all about the process of the beer on the festival's blog.

It's supposed to be a nice stretch of weather coming up, so join us on the patio at the Fifth Quadrant, Hedge House, Oaks Bottom & Sidebar, and remember: Drink Local. Drink Lompoc!

Wow, June 1 - how did that happen? Summer is right around the corner! We've got some great beers on tap at Sidebar today (but not tomorrow, we're closed for a private party). Come enjoy Patrick Henry IPA, 2008 Bourbon Barrel Aged Proletariat Red, Flamingo (our Kick Axe Pale Ale fermented in Maryhill Winery Port barrels with 40 pounds of sour cherries), Kick Axe Dry Hopped Pale, Ryeteous Badger (Belgian style red ale brewed with malted rye), and Stout Out Loud.

Tonight is Zoo Brew at the Oregon Zoo featuring 60-plus ciders, beer and live music by Cool-Ade on the concert main stage and DJ Angry Little Man. We'll be serving up Kick Axe Dry Hopped Pale Ale and Proletariat Red.

Tomorrow night is the  Portland Rose Festival Starlight Parade, and our own Dave "Chowdah" Fleming will be on the Oregon Brewers Festival float celebrating the event's 25th year. Look for Chowdah under the giant Lompoc neon sign!

Join us next Wednesday, June 6, for the release of Awry Wit, a collaboration with Migration Brewery.  The party takes place at Sidebar from 4 to 10 pm. We used European Pilsner malt as a base along with about 20% rye malt in the grist. Featured hops included Perle, Santiam and Mt. Hood, plus we added grapefruit zest and crushed coriander to the kettle at the end of boil. The beer was then fermented with three yeast strains: two Belgian wit strains and our house 1056 ale yeast. This beer is pale straw in color and has a floral nose of citrus with light fruit hints and a spicy dry finish. 5.6% ABV, 26 IBU.

Next weekend, June 9 & 10, is the Portland Fruit Beer Fest at NE Burnside & 7th. We've created a beer for this year's festival called Bomb.com Cherry Ale that will be barrel aged, cellared and blended. The base is a pale ale that was fermented on top of tart cherries in barrels originally used to produce port by Raymond Vineyards, then used for Oregon whiskey by Big Bottom Whiskey.

Wow, isn't it summer yet? We think someone forgot to tell Mother Nature here in Portland. Oh well, we'll drink away our worries. Join us at Sidebar today through Sunday, where we're serving up:

Cherry Porter, brewed in July 2009 and aged in Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels with 35 pounds of sour cherries for almost three years;  Cherry Bomb, our Proletariat Red fermented in Maryhill Winery Port barrels with 40 pounds of sour cherries;2010 Franc'ly Brewdolph, a Belgian style red ale fermented with the Belgian Ardennes yeast strain in October 2009 and aged in Maryhill Winery Cabernet Franc barrels for 13 months, then blended in a tank with the 2010 Brewdolph; Awry Wit, fermented with two Belgian Wit yeast strains and an American Ale strain; C-Note Imperial Pale Ale & Kick Axe Dry Hopped Pale Ale.

This Friday through Sunday, come try our Cluster Fuggles IPA at the North American Organic Brewers Festival at Overlook Park. This beer was made with almost all organic material except for one small addition of Centennial hops and one of Cluster. It's a mild IPA, more in line with a British version of the style. We used more than one pound per barrel of organic Fuggle hops from Ploughman Farms in Veneta, Oregon. Medium-bodied through the mid mouth, this beer finishes moderately bitter and clean. 6% ABV.

They're showing the Portland Timbers game at the NAOBF. Catch it there with a Cluster Fuggles, or come watch the game at any of the Lompoc pubs with a pint of Kick Axe. RCTID!
 
Also tonight, we're taking over the taps at the Brickhouse Bar & Grill in Vancouver, WA - stop in and grab a pint and show them some love!
 
Next Thursday is the Oregon Craft Beer Month Kickoff Party featuring the Oregon Brewers Festival movie, with a cameo by our own Dave "Chowdah" Fleming! It's at McMenamins Mission Theater from 6 to 10 pm. It's free admission, but first come first serve with limited seating, so get there early.

Speaking of Chowdah, you may have heard he's leaving the Lompoc family. Dave's going to be selling for Willamette Valley Hops. He's well known in the Oregon brewing community and will be truly missed here at Lompoc. His last day is July 11. We wish him well!

 
Have a great weekend, and remember, Drink Local. Drink Lompoc!

TGIF, Lompoc friends! We've got a lot of great stuff coming up, from our Sour Night to Oktoberfest release to a cheese and beer pairing, so read on...

Today & tomorrow at Sidebar, we're serving up Red Raisin, our Proletariat Red aged for 3 years in Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels with 35 pounds of sour cherries; Roar of '84 IPA, named for the Detroit Tigers most spectacular season. It's dark blonde in color and strikingly bitter, with an herbal, hoppy aroma and finish; Cherry Porter, brewed in July 2009 and aged in Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels with 35 pounds of sour cherries for almost three years; Kick Axe Dry Hopped Pale Ale; Lucky Lab BENevolant Dictator, a mild ale with a little extra hop kick, plus a touch of wheat and crystal malt; and Eel River Acai Berry Wheat, a delicate crystal wheat beer with a very light body balanced by the aroma of organic Acai, pomegranate and other mixed berries.

Pucker up, sour fans, you're going to love next Wednesday! Lompoc Sour Night is Aug. 29 at Sidebar from 4 to 10 pm, and will feature Lompoc Fleming Red; Lompoc Cherry Bomb, our Proletariat Red fermented in Maryhill Winery Port barrels with 40 pounds of sour cherries for a big cherry aroma with a fruit forward flavor, finishing dry with a touch of oak; Breakside Passionfruit Berliner Weisse, a sharply sour German wheat ale made from a 100% sour mash, infused with the tart and tropical flavors of passionfruit; Cascade Elderberry, a NW style sour red ale initially aged for 14 months in French oak wine barrels, then additionally aged on elderberries for 10 months; The Commons Berliner Weisse, a traditional European inspired Berliner Weisse; and Upright Lactovasilios, a one-off barrel fermented Berliner Weisse that features a pleasantly funky and aromatic nose with the characteristic sharp sour flavor produced by large amounts of lactic acid bacteria.

Next Saturday, September 1 is our Oktoberfest release celebration! This will take place at the Fifth Quadrant, 3901 N Williams from 11 am to dusk. We'll have cornhole games in the parking lot, food specials including brats and soft pretzels, and canned German music. The portable Brewery Bar will be serving Lompoc Oktoberfest, a pale orange lager with a clean malt flavor balanced by a touch of Perle hops.  A portion of the grain used was roasted in the oven at Lompoc's Fifth Quadrant, giving a slight biscuit flavor. We'll also serve up Jolly Bock, an amber lager brewed with a generous amount of Munich malt for a rich malt flavor balanced with a spicy hop bitterness. The Brewery Bar is cash only, $4.50 a pint. The Fifth Quadrant and Sidebar will both be open as well.

Upcoming Lompoc events to put on the calendar...
Wednesday, September 12: Beer and Cheese Pairing with Steve's Cheese

It's December, which means the days are getting shorter, colder, and - here in Portland - wetter. This calls for a drink! Lucky for you, today, tomorrow and Friday at Sidebar, we're pouring Monster Mash Imperial Porter, Bourbon Barrel Aged Wee Heavy, C-sons Greetings, Jolly Bock, Blitzen and Rosemary Stout. Come join us with a pint by the fire!

Bottle are just $5 each, with 10% off a case - L'chaim! Also now available in bottles, our C-sons Greetings and Lompoc Special Draft (LSD).

Lots of great stuff going on, and we hope you'll take part. In the meantime, have a fantastic week, and remember: Drink Local. Drink Lompoc!

Hi friends! Hope you're enjoying the holiday season. It's a busy time at Lompoc, starting with the return of Trivia Night at Oaks Bottom every Wednesdays at 7:30pm beginning tomorrow. Grab some totchos and join host Amanda on the back patio - ages 21 and over, please.

Less than two weeks later, their three-year-old daughter was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Both mother and daughter have begun their journey for treatment. We will be donating a percentage of Thursday's sales to the Ruelle family; if you wish to learn more, visit www.theruellefamily.com.

The participating businesses will stay open late to offer signature cocktails, hors d'œuvres and 20% off all items in their stores. These businesses include Ink & Peat, Lark Press, Lodekka, Myoptic, Queen Bee Creations/Chickpea Baby/Rebecca Pearcy Textiles, SpeilWerk Toys, Tinymeat and Yoga Shala. Come support the neighborhood, and be sure and stop by Lompoc for a pint and some dinner!

"You see, there's no guilt in baseball, and it's never boring... which makes it like sex." If you know what movie that line is from, then you're a true baseball fan! Join us tomorrow at Sidebar starting at 4pm for our Baseball IPA Series Movie Night. Taste & compare the IPAs of our Baseball themed series: Yankee Clipper IPA, brewed in honor of Joe DiMaggio, a Yankee great; Stargell Stars IPA, named in honor of Pittsburgh Pirate great Willie Stargell; Roar of '84 IPA, named for the Detroit Tigers most spectacular season, their last World Series championship; and Hammerin' Hank IPA, named after the true Homerun King. For those who prefer soccer to baseball, we've rounded out the bases with North End CDA and and Kick Axe Dry Hopped Pale. Enjoy some peanuts, buy a few dogs, then settle in as we show the classic baseball movie Bull Durham starting at 7pm.

Then on Thursday, join Bryan & Irena for a Meet the Brewer and Bottle Tasting at The Portland Bottle Shop at 7960 SE 13th Ave from 5:30-7:30. On tap we'll have Prime Directive IPA and Scarlet Red. We'll be pouring bottle samples of C-Note, LSD and Proletariat Red. Come say hi!

 On Friday & Saturday, hangout at Sidebar from 4-10 for Flamingo, our Kick Axe fermented in Cabernet Franc barrels with 35 pounds of sour cherries; Santiam Pale Ale; Bourbon Barrel Aged Wee Heavy; Bourbon Barrel Aged LSD; Old Tavern Rat Barleywine; and Blitzen Spiced Golden Ale.
 
Don't forget, next Wednesday, January 23 is the release of our new Illegally Blonde Stout at Hedge House. This light colored, full-bodied beer will make you think it's costumed and playing a role that's not its own. Inspired by the German pale stouts of centuries old, it owes its body and bitter flavors to rolled oats and acidulated malts rather than dark, roasted ones. Centennial and Willamette hops contribute pleasant fruity and floral notes. Oh, and did we mention free food? We'll tap the keg at 4pm; Hedge House is located at 3412 SE Division St.
 
 Our popular Batch 69 Baltic Porter - aged over two years in Bourbon barrels - will be released on draft and in bottles on February 6 at Sidebar. This is a an excellent beer you won't want to miss. Details on the release party to come.

In the meantime, stay warm and remember:  Drink Local. Drink Lompoc!

Hi Lompoc friends! Wanted to let you know that Geraldo Brewvera is going treasure hunting again. Join Lompoc founder Jerry Fechter's alterego, Geraldo Brewvera, this Wednesday, March 13th from 5 to 7pm. Following in the footsteps of the intrepid Geraldo Rivera who opened Al Capone's vault, our Geraldo will venture into the "vault" at Oaks Bottom Public House, 1621 SE Bybee Blvd. What will he find? That's the delicious mystery of it all. We'll be serving up taster trays of whatever he unearths, along with the release of Cherry Wheat, a wheat ale brewed in August 2011 with 200 lbs of sour cherries and aged in Maryhill Winery Port barrels for two months. It has a slight oak aroma with a crisp cherry flavor, finishing slightly tart. Wednesday is also Trivia Night at Oaks Bottom with Katie Shimer on the patio starting at 7pm, so by all means, stay and play!

If you find yourself on the North side of town on Wednesday instead, then pop on over to Sidebar, where we'll be serving up Calling All Monsters IPA, the intensely hopped third installment in our sci-fi IPA series; Franc'ly Brewdolph Belgian style Red Ale; Bourbon Barrel Aged Monster Mash, aged for two years in Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels; Batch 69 Baltic Porter; Fool's Golden Ale, and Kick Axe Dry Hopped Pale Ale. Sidebar is open from 4 to 10pm on Wednesday, but closed on Thursday for a private party.

Friday & Saturday, Sidebar will open back up and serve Calling All Monsters IPA, 2011 Fresh Hop Harvest Man Red, 2012 8 Malty Nights, 2012 Brewdolph, Willy's Wheat & Kick Axe.

 This weekend is St. Patrick's Day, and we'll be celebrating at Fifth Quadrant, Oaks Bottom & Hedge House starting on Friday and rolling through Sunday. Come enjoy live Irish music on the radio, Corned Beef & Cabbage, Irish drink specials and Stout Out Loud on Nitro - no cover charge. Because if it's not Irish, it's crap!

Portland Timbers play our arch rivals, the Seattle Sounders, this Saturday - if you're staying in town, come watch the game at any of the Lompoc pubs and be sure to grab a pint of Kick Axe Dry Hopped Pale Ale: Fit for an Army!

Have a great week, and remember:  Drink Local. Drink Lompoc!
