Here’s a beer list and descriptions on each of the five beers provided by Lompoc Brewing.
World Class Wreckin Brew: Brewed in collaboration with Willamette Week writers Martin Cizmar and Parker Hall, this is the 1st in Lompoc’s Hip Hop series of IPAs. Pale orange in color with a strong tropical fruit aroma with hints of fresh lime zest. Hopped with Simcoe, Huell Melon and Mandarina Bavaria, then aged in a brite tank on mango puree.
