New Old Lompoc’s Sidebar (at the Fifth Quadrant brewpub) just announced some delicious and rare beers pouring on tap this weekend.
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 1 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
2009 Dagda Pan-Gaelic Red – Brewed in February ’08, this beer features a huge malty nose with a caramel finish. It has a full sweet palate with very little hops. 7.5% ABV
2008 Pagan Porter – Brewed in August ’08, Lompoc’s porter is black in color with a soft roastiness in the nose and a rich chocolate flavor. 6.4% ABV
Barrel Fermented IPA – The brewers at Lompoc took their Centennial IPA and fermented it in a white English oak barrel. Crystal malts give it a rich golden color, and Centennial hops provide a floral nose and sharp bitter finish. 7.6% ABV
LSD (Lompoc Strong Draft) – A Portland Classic! This strong ale has a deep mahogany color and is crafted with seven different specialty malts. A touch of smoked malt gives it a complex aroma and incredible flavor. LSD is also generously hopped with six hop varieties to help create an awesome beer. 6.9% ABV
Fool’s Golden Ale – Crystal hops and malted wheat balance this great session beer. 5% ABV
Sidebar is open Friday from 4-10 pm and Saturday from 2-10 pm. Our tasting room featuring barrel aged and seasonal specialty beers is located at 3901 N Williams, just past Pix Patisserie.
