A One Night Stand With Cismontane Brewing: 8/28

Cismontane 780x440

(Cis-mon-tane): The side of the mountains. In reference to coastal Southern California. Cismontane Brewing Company, rooted deeply in south Orange County, has been crafting California focused ales for the past three years. Owners Evan Weinberg and Ross Stewart seek inspiration from the high peaks and green valleys of their surroundings in creating well balanced and interesting beer with a local influence. With names such as Pandion Pale, El Modeno Mild, and Holy Jim Falls XPA, these are California brews through and through.

We look forward to hosting the Cismontane crew for what will surely be another fantastic One Night Stand. Our tap list so far includes the following:

Coulter IPA Citizen Black's Dawn Holy Jim Falls XPA ABZ IPA La Crema 3rd Anniversary Belgian Strong Buckwheat Oktoberfest 2012 Session Saison

Viva Italia: Italian Beers With Tomm Carroll

Tomm_Carroll

On Sunday, July 28 we will be hosting an event dedicated to the beers of Italy with a tap list curated by Tomm Carroll. If you haven't yet met Tomm, you really need to. The man is one of the most knowledgable beer people in all of L.A. His passion for craft is unending and we are very much looking forward to spending an afternoon with him.

Most people think of Italian beer as the green bottled macro-lagers of Peroni and Moretti. Italy is obviously awash in a variety of fantastic wines, but did you know that there is an increasing surge of craft beer as well? And in a land of wine, cheese, and truffles it's no surprise that craft loving Italians are demanding flavorful beer. The Full Pint recently published an article about their three favorite Italian breweries.

Save the date and stay tuned for the full tap list for the event. Salute!
