Friday Night, Tasting Right

Here’s a couple recommendations for tonight, Friday March 25th. Another lovely night for craft beer in Beervana. Enjoy.
The 2nd Annual Roscoe’s IPA Summit begins tonight at 4 PM.  Some of the Breweries (and beers) included will be: Hopworks (Ace of Spades), Laurelwood (Imperial Workhorse), Fort George (Sixteenth Chapel), Russian River (Pliny the Elder and Blind Pig), Prodigal Son (Splendor in the Glass), Avery (Maharaja), Cascade (Spring Solstice IPA), Lompoc (Nitro C-Note), New Belgium/Elysian (Trip VIII), and many more.
Roscoe’s will have 5 ounce tasters available so that you can try a little of each brew.  There will also be brewers in attendance to answer questions about the beers.

The Lompoc Sidebar will be serving up some delicious brews tonight and tomorrow night. Dagda, a Pan-Gaelic red ale featuring a malty body with caramel flavors, a touch of smoke and a tart finish; Dry Hop Condor Pale Ale, a crisp and nicely hopped pale ale that’s been dry hopped with whole leaf Crystals; Brewdolph, a Belgian style red ale brewed with the Belgian Ardennes yeast strain that boasts a malty & creamy body, a mild fruitiness and a spicy clove character; Merlot Barrel Aged Norman Invasion, a Biere de Garde aged for nine months in a Maryhill Winery merlot barrel. It’s extremely dry with lots of oak, wine notes, and a hint of sourness; Proletariat Red, a malty and full bodied red ale with a deep, rich red color; and Fool’s Golden Ale, our light, refreshing session beer that blends malted wheat and Crystal hops. Sidebar is open Friday 4-10 pm and Saturday, 2-10 pm.
