This past Friday was the 4th Anniversary celebration for Fullerton, California’s BOOTLEGGER’S BREWERY. This year’s event was held at the Muckenthaler Culture Center in Fullerton and added a nice sense of prestige to the party.

The last beer that I wrote a review for that night was beer number 9, FAR OUT IPA.
Far Out IPA is an American IPA with a 7% ABV. Continue reading
The Barleywine is a style that I don’t drink that often and it’s not because I don’t enjoy them. It just seems that: 1. They’re not that common. 2. They’re usually seasonal. and 3. They’re big and not great for sessions (or beer events where I find myself drinking all day). With that being said, my fourth beer of the day was their 77th ANNIVERSARY ALE.
77th Anniversary Ale is an American Barleywine with a, small for the style, 7.7% ABV.
After making a little detour to score a pour of Imperial Phoenix, I made my way back to the world of sours. SOUR #4 was my third beer of the day.
Sour #4 is another American Wild Ale.
Whenever I go to beer events there are certain styles of beer that I look for on the tap list. Sours are usually at the top of this list. So once I got to Bootlegger’s 4th Anniversary party I scanned the beer list and settled on SOUR #1 (w/KOMBUCHA CULTURE). With my taster in hand we headed toward station number 7.
Sour #1 is an American Wild Ale.
Ever since I went to the Bootlegger’s 3rd Anniversary this past April I’ve become a big fan of their work. Every time I see one of their new beers on the shelf/on tap at a bar I have to give it a try. Their autumn seasonal, PUMPKIN ALE, was no exception.
Pumpkin Ale is a pumpkin ale (duh) with 17.8 IBUs and a 6.1% ABV. Continue reading
Beer #10 was my first, and only, truly hoppy beer of the event. Dr. Tongue is an India Brown Ale or American Strong Ale, depending on who you ask. Whatever you want to call it, this bloody-good beer has a 7.5% ABV and a grave-full of hops.
After being distracted by a craft beer-fueled going away party and the God of Thunder, it’s finally time for beer #6. This beer was quite unique (at least unique to me) in that it uses Habanero peppers to add an extra “kick”. This picante pale ale has a grande 8% ABV.
