C-Dog Double India Pale Ale Release at Lompoc’s Sidebar
3901 N Williams Ave # B Portland, OR 97227-1465 (503) 288-3996

… the highly anticipated release party for C-Dog Double IPA at Sidebar. A collaborative beer brewed with the Lucky Lab back in March, C-Dog was the final beer to ever be brewed on the Lucky Lab Brewhouse that we've been using for the past six years.

Coined a "Lucky Lompodor Production," C-Dog is a 50/50 blend of C-son's Greetings and Superdog. Both beers were brewed into one fermenter, with nine types of hops added in the kettle (the seven Cs, Fuggles & Amarillos). The entire fermenter was then dry-hopped with another eight types of hops for a ridiculous total of 32 lbs of hops in a 10 bbl batch. The malt profile includes flaked barley, Crystal 75 and Munich. The final ABV is 7.4%.

C-Dog will be available in bottles and on draft at both Lompoc and Lucky Lab for a limited time.
