Lompoc Brewing, known for releasing a ridiculous amount of holiday seasonals every year, has once again lived up to its reputation. The annual Lompoc Holiday Beer Extravaganza will showcase the draft release of seven different holiday beers, two of which will also be available in bottles. The lineup includes 8 Malty Nights, Portland’s first Hanukkah beer and one of the only Hanukkah beers in the nation. The release party will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 27th from 4 to 10 pm at the Lompoc Sidebar, located at 3901 N Williams Ave.
This year’s offerings include Blitzen Golden Ale, Jolly Bock German Style Bock, Franc’ly Brewdolph Belgian Style Red, C-Sons Greetings Imperial IPA , Old Tavern Rat Barley Wine, 8 Malty Nights Chocolate Rye, and Bourbon Barrel Aged Wee Heavy. Both C’sons Greetings and 8 Malty Nights will also be released in 22-ounce bottles.
The brewery will also have two beers available at the popular Holiday Ale Festival Nov. 28 through Dec. 2 at Pioneer Courthouse Square: Franc’ly Brewdolph, a beer brewed in October 2011 with the Belgian Ardennes yeast strain and aged for a year in Cabernet Franc barrels; and a collaboration with Breakside Brewing dubbed Breakside India Passion Elixir.
