Timbers are back at home this Saturday, playing the Houston Dynamo at 7:30pm at Jeld Wen Field. Don’t have tickets? 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!
Zagat Survey just released a list of “Can’t Miss Beer Cities Around the World” that hits on 14 cities that are the best for drinking beer. Portland is, of course, on the list, but most exciting is the shout out to Lompoc Brewing: “Try drinking at home-grown breweries and taverns like Widmer Gasthaus, the New Old Lompoc and Bridgeport.” We’ll drink to that (and you should, too!).
Progress on the Lompoc Tavern on NW 23rd Avenue is moving right along, we hope to be open by mid-May. In preparation, we just brewed up Resurrection IPA – it’s big, bitter & hoppy. It’ll put hair on your chest, and apparently Jerry’s head…
Coming up next week, we’ll be at North 45 Pub on Thursday, April 11th at 6pm for their Brew Hog Blowout, serving up Kick Axe – come join in the fun!
If you’re in Beaverton, you can try our beer on Saturday, April 13th from 2-5pm at a Meet the Brewer at New Seasons at Progress Ridge, 14805 SW Barrows Rd. Come taste our Bourbon LSD and let us know what you think!
Back on the east side of town, join the Lompoc brewers as we celebrate the release of Cellar D’or, a delicious Belgian Golden, Wednesday, April 17th at Hedge House from 5 to 7pm. Then try it at the Cheers to Belgian Beers on April 19th & 20th at Metalcraft Fabrication, 723 N Tillamook St in Portland.
Then we finish up the month at the Oregon Garden Brewfest down in Silverton, April 25-27. The Willamette Valley’s biggest beer festival will feature 125 beers, ciders & mead from 62 different breweries over three days. Located in the historic town of Silverton, just an hour’s drive from the Portland metropolitan area, the Oregon Garden Brewfest also showcases live music from 22 area bands.
We’re brewing Heaven’s Helles today, which means summer is coming! It will be released on May 22nd at Sidebar.We just finished brewing up Saison the Beach, due on tap May 1st. This beer features grapefruit zest, candied ginger & black peppercorns – delicious! We’ll also be releasing our Spring Bock on May 1st, stay tuned for release details.
Have a great weekend, and remember: Drink Local. Drink Lompoc!
