At our Meet the Brewery tonight, we’re hosting North Coast Brewing Company, one of the pioneers in the craft brew movement.
The brewery opened in 1988 as a local brewpub in Fort Bragg, California. Since then, North Coast has won more than 70 national and international awards for brews such as Red Seal Ale, and Scrimshaw Pilsner.
At tonight’s event, we’ll be featuring seven of this great brewery’s best drafts, including:
Red Seal Ale - This full-bodied, copper red pale ale has a long, spicy finish, and is a perfect balance of sweet and bitter notes.
Pranqster – A Belgian Style Golden Ale, Pranqster represents the height of the brewer’s art. A mixed culture of antique yeast strains that produce a floral note, Pranqster has a full fruity flavor, and a clean finish.
Scrimshaw – A fresh tasting Pilsner that’s brewed in the finest European tradition using Munich malt and Hallertauer and Tettnang hops. Scrimshaw has a subtle hop character, a dry finish, and a crisp, clean palate.
Brother Thelonious – Rich and robust, this dark, strong ale has rich chocolate notes with a distinct flavor.
Old #38 Stout – A smooth, firm-bodied stout with coffee notes of dark malts and roasted barley, Old #38 Stout has rich flavors with hints of burnt sugar, and mild fruit.
Le Merle – With notes of tropical fruit, this rustic, pale ale has just the right amount of sweetness. Inspired by the rich brewing traditions of the Flanders region, Le Merle boasts abundant hops, and a Belgian yeast strain that contribute to the hints of underlying spice.
Old Rasputin – A North Coast favorite, Old Rasputin is a Russian Imperial Stout that has complex flavors and warming finish. With notes of chocolate and coffee, this intense brew is incredibly rich and lush.
