Press Release

PORTLAND, Ore. – Just in time for Thanksgiving, Lompoc Brewing will release its Barrel Aged Cranberry Saison, part of Lompoc’s Select Series of beers, in 500 ml bottles and on draft. The beer release will take place on Friday, Nov. 17 from 4pm to 11pm at Lompoc Sidebar, 3901 N Williams Ave.

Lompoc’s Barrel Aged Cranberry Saison is a Belgian style ale brewed with fresh cranberries and aged one year in port barrels that infused the beer with a drinkable tart and spicy flavor and subtle notes of port and oak. Pale and wheat malts keep it light, while the peppery yeast and noble hops lead to a tangy finish (5% ABV).

The release party will also offer a food special of Sage Derby Turkey Sliders, created by Lompoc chef Mark Otey specifically to pair with this beer. Featuring ground turkey, cranberry cream cheese, sage Derby cheese, arugula and a cranberry compote for some tanginess, the sliders will be available for $3.50 apiece.

Lompoc debuted its Select Series in June of this year with Barrel Aged Red on Rye. For more information, visit and get social @LompocBeer.
