Pacific Gravity will again be rallying the troops for a foray behind the Orange Curtain to two new (to Pacific Gravity) breweries that are thrilled to be hosting us: Bootleggers Brewery in Fullerton and Old Orange Brewing in…wait for it…Orange.
Bootleggers is a great brewery that recently celebrated their 4th anniversary and signed up a new distributor to get their beers into more locations. They are known for Knuckle Sandwich, a great DIPA, although I am a fan of the huge range of beers they pour in their tasting room (frequently as many as 20). They range between the punch of Knuckle Sandwich and Golden Chaos (a Belgian Golden Strong based on an old homebrewing recipe) to sessionable beers like Palomino Pale and Prohibition Mild. They were nice enough to offer to open early to accommodate us, so we’ll have the run of the place as well.
Old Orange Brewing is a newer brewery in the shadows of Anaheim Stadium and the Honda Center. They are looking to be a community brewery and have a range of great beers. From the Orange Street Fair-inspired Kolsch to my personal favorite, Old Dummy, there is a beer or two on the list that everyone will enjoy. I don’t think they are getting much, if any, beer into LA, so make the trip and one-up your beer nerd friends!
We are still in the process of sorting out the food situation, but something will be available to eat while we check out the breweries. Details to follow as we have ‘em.
The trip is open to anyone that is interested in attending, so please feel free to let friends know they are welcome to join us. As always, please contact me directly if you have any questions at [email protected] and bring cash or checks to the next club event to reserve your seat.
