Noble Ale Works Lineup!

image1Lucky number 13! We have been working with Evan over at Noble Ale Works for about a month now and boy do we have a crazy special lineup waiting to swirl around your tongue, through your liver, and...anyhoo, we will leave it at that!  Regardless, prepare your insides this coming Tuesday - September 30th, 2014 AD at our Anaheim location, because these guys from around the bend have really nailed it with the following suckers:

1. Earl's Grey Dinghy - This Ordinary Bitter rocks in at 3.5% ABV, uses some incredible English malts and gets hit hard with a dose of Earl Grey Tea from Seventh Tea Bar in Costa Mesa. The result is light-medium bodied, copper in color and is what is truly meant by a Session Beer.

2. Pistola - Our Pistol Whip’d Pils ate a bunch of Serrano Peppers and then decided to change his name. 4.5% abv

3. Pistol Whip’d - A fresh take on a Czech-Style Pils brewed with New Zealand’s Motueka hops. Pale yellow in color, medium in body, showcases a vibrant, floral hop character, lots of lime, a bit of juicy fruit and some snappy dryness in the finish.
 4.5% abv

4. Rosalita - Bright Pink in color and medium in body, the Pistol Whip’d becomes the perfect companion to the mass quantities of dried hibiscus flowers that are cold soaked in the beer for 48 hours. Flavor notes of cranberry, rose and lime pave the way to its tart finish. 4.6% abv

5. Sweetish Fish - Our raspberry blonde ale finished off with just a bit of sweetness and then a super secret ingredient that we can’t tell anyone about…The result is reddish pink in color, light bodied, and tastes of raspberry snow cones, red licorice and fruit punch. 5.0% abv

6. Cinnamon Roast Crunch – The addition of Saigon Cinnamon to Naughty Sauce makes it taste like the milk left in the bowl after a certain breakfast cereal that my mom would reward us with from time to time as kids. 5.4% abv

7. Naughty Sauce - Golden Milk Stout w/ Coffee on Nitro – Head Brewer Evan Price worked together with Roast Master Jeff Duggan from Portola Coffee Lab for this paradox. It’s a stout beer made with oats and milk sugar, coffee instead of roasted grain and then served on nitro to add even more creaminess! Full bodied, deep golden in color, with smooth and flavorful layers of pecan pie, cinnamon and cookie dough. 5.4% abv.

8. Man's Milk - Our version of the classic Milk Stout is served on nitro, black in color, full bodied with flavorful layers of Count Chocula milk and caramel sundae but then lingers with notes of that one dark chocolate we really like but can't afford. 6.1% abv

9. Oktoastyfest - This is our version of an Oktoberfest beer. It is crisp, malty and drinkable like an Oktoberfest, but we made it super toasty! The aroma is sweet with crisp saltine crackers and wheat bread. The flavor follows through with more crackers and toast that balances out the malt sweetness. Oktober has never tasted so good! 6.6% abv

10. Too Darn Hot - Big Whig IPA gets an addition of habanero peppers and becomes a whole new beast. We wouldn’t say that it’s really TOO darn hot. It’s rather that we just like that Ella Fitzgerald song. 6.8% abv

11. Big Whig IPA - Hop-forward throughout, this West Coast style ale hits the palate with layers of tangerine, honey, and rosemary that harmoniously unite into a big, resinous, lingering finish. 6.8% abv

12. Evan's Big Bowl Of Boozy Punch! - It's a surprise!

13. Galaxy Showers - Galaxy is our ninth choice in our Double IPA series that showcases the beauty of one single hop variety with each consecutive release. This Australian grown hop showers down beautiful layers of Aurora Borealis, Saturn’s peach rings and a twinkle of Stardust. Look forward to more releases from this series. 8.8% abv

Big Belgian Beer Lineup!

#BigBelgianBeerNight Oh Gnome!!!

You guys are all going down tomorrow. We have brought together sixteen (16) big boozy Belgian behemoths to make you belch.  Sixteen (16)!

Without further ado, check out the lineup we have for you guys in Costa Mesa on September 16, Beginning at 5pm:

1. Duvel Single – 6.8% ABV | 30 IBU – Duvel Single is brewed to the same high standards as bottled Duvel, with the same high quality ingredients. Now, for the first time, Duvel Single is refermented in the keg, creating enhanced flavor and higher carbonation.

2. Hennepin – 7.7% ABV | 24 IBU – One of the first Belgian-style saisons brewed in America and remains a standard for the style. Ommegang's leading draft beer, Hennepin is a hoppy, farmhouse-style ale inspired by rustic farmstead brews imbibed on traditional Belgian farms during the long days of harvest season.

3. La Chouffe – 8% ABV | 18 IBU – The legend of the gnomes who once brewed in this area inspired this lovely golden ale. Fruit, hops, and citrus aromas and tastes abound,with a spicy finish

4. Goudenband – 8% ABV | 11 IBU – This sour brown beer udnergoes a mixed fermentation that matures for 4 -12 months before being carefully blended with other ventages by the brewmaster to become "Goudenband". The careful touch of the craft brewer is seen throughout the brewing process in this exquisite sour

5. Ommegang Abbey – 8.2% ABV | 30 IBU – Directly influenced by the patience and wisdom of the Trappists, who seek divine union - a pretty high standard for a beer, but a good one. Their first ever beer, with which we opened the doors in 1997, and still one of our two best sellers. Ommegang Abbey is made all the more distinctive by subtle aromas and flavors from brewing with exotic spices.

6. Houblon Chouffe – 9% ABV | 75 IBU – In his travels around the globe, the little Chouffe wandered through beautiful hop fields. The overwhelming aromas of Tomahwk, Amarillo, and Saaz mesmerized him. Back at home in the Ardennes he crafted a new beer combining this dazzling array of hops with the depth of body of his favorite style: The Belgian Tripel

7. La Fin Du Monde – 9% ABV | 19 IBU – It is brewed in honor of the intrepid European explorers who believed they had reached the “end of the world” when they discovered North America ‘the new world’. This triple-style golden ale recreates the style of beer originally developed in the Middle Ages by trappist monks for special occasions and as such it was the first of its kind to be brewed in North America.

8. Feminist – 9.4% ABV | 20 IBU – Spiced with hibiscus. Heavily infused with hibiscus, the beer displays a pink tinge. The beer greets you with a malty sweetness that quickly dissipates into a dry and tart grapefruit, lemonade finish.

9. Brother Thelonius – 9.4% ABV | 32 IBU – Like a Belgian "Dark Strong Ale", this beer is rich and  robust with an ABV of 9.4. The package features a label picturing the Jazz master himself. The Brewery makes a donation to the Brother Thelonius Institute of Jazz for every bottle sold.

10. Gnomegang – 9.5% ABV | 20 IBU – The cheerful gnomes of Belgian farmstead Brasserie d'Achouffe dropped by Brewery Ommegang in the summer of 2010, bringing a present of Chouffe yeast for our brewers. Chouffe's fruity, spicy yeast is a signature found in every Chouffe beer. Using their yeast in primary fermentation - along with their recipe, our brewing, and our yeast in bottle conditioning - yields a unique, flavorful, and aromatic dose of magic.

11. Triquillo – 9.6% ABV | 18 IBU – Trappist-style Tripel aged in Tequila barrels bubblegum nose gives way to classic tripel flavors before the influence of light agave booze and sweetness.

12. Three Philosophers – 9.7% ABV | 19 IBU – The Belgian motto is “Strength in Union.” No phrase better describes Ommegang’s delicious Three Philosophers Quadrupel, which is a masterful blend of a strong, malty quadrupel ale and authentic Belgian Kriek from Brouwerij Liefmans in Oudenarde, Belgium. It’s the only beer of its kind in the world, and the high ABV and complexity of this beer makes it a good candidate for ageing gracefully.

13. Maredsous Tripel – 10% ABV | 18 IBU – It's elegant smoothness belies the strong alcohol content. You'll revel in the carefully balanced, long and warming finish.

14. Horny Devil – 10% ABV | 23 IBU – Horny Devil is their interpretation of a Belgian-style Golden Ale. Brewed with authentic Belgian ingredients including candi sugar and a Trappist yeast strain.

15. Malheur 12 – 12% ABV | 30 IBU – The deep chestnut color is the crown jewel in the family of Malheur quality beers. This chestnut-colored beer releases a delightful bouquet of spices and rich hop flowers and has a full-bodied flavor. Take the time to discover this delicious tasting beer, which attests to pure craftsmanship

16. Angel's Share – 12.5% ABV | 52 IBU – Their Angel’s Share is a barrel aged burgundy colored ale infused with copious amounts of dark caramel malt to emphasize the vanilla and oak flavors found in freshly emptied bourbon or brandy barrels. Each batch spends no less than 12 months aging in the oak. As with all of our beers, this beer is brewed for sinners and saints alike. So be an angel and share it with a friend or two.

Check back with us tomorrow morning for the yumminess you guys will be chomping on!

1. Pistol Whip'd - 4.5% ABV - A fresh take on a Czech-Style Pilsner brewed with New Zealand’s Motueka hops. Pale yellow in color and medium in body, it showcases a vibrant, floral hop character, lots of lime, a bit of juicy fruit, and some snappy dryness in the finish.

2. Rosalita - 4.5% ABV - Our Hibiscus Lager is bright pink in color and medium in body, the Pistol Whip’d becomes the perfect companion to the mass quantities of dried hibiscus flowers that are cold soaked in the beer for 48 hours.

3. Breakaway Pale Ale - 5.0% ABV - American Ale brewed in true California fashion, it’s pale-golden in color and light to medium in body. A hoppy bouquet of orange blossom and honeydew leads into a soft undertone of breadiness. The dry finish lingers with notes of green tea and passion fruit.

4. Naughty Sauce - 5.4% ABV - Golden Milk Stout w/ Coffee on Nitro – Head Brewer Evan Price worked together with Roast Master Jeff Duggan from Portola Coffee Lab for this paradox.
