Dear Phantom Friends!
Starting Thursday at 4 PM and going through Sunday or until all the kegs kick, it’s the Hop Wars 4 finals. 3 great brewers, 3 solid IPA’s. Come down and taste, and enjoy. Also this week we are releasing our newest B42 IPA. Apollo, Amarillo, and Simcoe team up in this really big IPA. If you haven’t been around for awhile we’ve had a couple other new releases as well like our Purple Haze plum mead, and our Citra Pale. New to the menu this week are Chicken Andouille Sausages, and nachos!
Hope to see you soon!
Phantom Ales is excited to announce that our Wraith Stout won the bronze medal in the Foreign Style Stout category at the Los Angeles International Beer Competition!
Also this week, Hop Wars 5 gets under way. It’s a new format that is focused on a single style of beer each week, and blind tasting. This week, it’s English Ordinary Bitter.
After a brief absence from the tap list, the newest version of Flying Brick returns to the lineup this Friday. It has a huge Mosaic nose with clean Mosaic flavor throughout. Also coming out Friday is our newest creation, Vienna Spring. It’s a Vienna Lager recipe fermented at the bottom a of California Ale yeast temperature range.
Mozzarella, Parmesan, sauce, spices, and pepperonis all wrapped up and cooked until it’s all melted together on the inside. Pair that with our new Session IPA coming out Friday and you’ve got your self a great meal.
We have two exciting developments for the week. First up, our version of a Session Pale, Golden Spectre. a 5.5% ABV golden smooth delight. Next up, our first shot at Craft Soda. We’ve made a cucumber, blueberry soda that’s on tap at just $1 a pint.
West Ghost DIPA Debuts Friday. It Comes in at 8.6 % ABV and 93 IBU. Nine pounds of El Dorado, Nelson, and Pacific Jade cram their way into just 5 kegs of beer. It’s a super clean, super hoppy DIPA.
This week, Hop Wars 4 continues. We have Rayito del Sol IPA, Numb Knutts Double IPL, and Kiwi’s Big Adventure Farmhouse Wit all going head to head. Who will move on?
