Pouring This Weekend at the Sidebar

NOL's Side Bar

Lompoc’s Sidebar is a  tasting room that features barrel aged and seasonal specialty beers; it’s located at 3901 N Williams, just past Pix Patisserie on the left. Hours are 4 to 10 PM on Friday and 2 to 10 pm on Saturday. This weekend’s line-up includes:

Bob’s Memorial Braggot – brewed in the summer of ’08 and blended and bottled in March ’09, this beer is 2.25 parts mead to one part brown ale. The late Bob Farrell, one of the true gentlemen of the Oregon craft-beer world, was a great fan of braggot, and helped blend this before his untimely death from cancer. We raise our glass to Bob when we drink this! 7% ABV

’08 Bourbon Barrel Aged Pagan Porter – Brewed in August ’08 and aged in bourbon barrels for three months, this porter is black in color with hints of bourbon and vanilla. There is a soft roastiness in the nose and a rich chocolate flavor. 6.4% ABV

Sockeye Stout – This is a perfect stout, featuring roasted malt flavors with rich chocolate and coffee undertones combined with an addition of oats for a lasting finish. 4.9% ABV

Red Scare Imperial Red – This imperial red ale brewed with Nottingham ale yeast is a certified malt bomb. Medium bodied with a deep crimson hue, Red Scare tastes of dark fruit with a light biscuit character. 9.5% ABV

Centennial India Pale Ale – Our classic Northwest IPA is brewed with Crystal malts for a rich golden color. Centennial hops provide a floral nose and sharp bitter finish. 6% ABV

Condor Pale Ale – A crisp and nicely hopped Pale Ale that’s great for quaffing with comrades or enjoying along side with some pub grub. 5.2% ABV

Have a great weekend!
