Look for Jolly Bock, Brewdolph, Holiday Cheers, C-Son’s Greetings, Old Tavern Rat, and Cherry Christmas to be on tap.
This lager was brewed with a generous amount of Munich malt to develop the deep amber color and rich malt flavor. The malty flavor is balanced with a spicy hop bitterness.
This Belgian style red ale features a malty and creamy body. Brewed with the Belgian Ardennes yeast strain, it boasts a mild fruitiness and a spicy clove character.
A robust vanilla porter that combines big chocolate flavor and a full body with mellow vanilla notes compliments of whole vanilla beans in the conditioning tank.
Brewed and dry-hopped with all seven “C” hops. A deep copper color with a piney, citrusy, floral and resinous aroma. Full hop flavor with a rich caramel malt finish and an endless developing hop presence.
A dark amber colored barleywine that was aged for almost a year prior to its release. It has a strong bitterness that is balanced with the sweetness of caramel and toffee flavors.
Cherry Christmas Brewery Description
Originally brewed in a wine tote in August 2013 with 200 pounds of sour cherries, this beer sat on the cherries for a month, and was then transferred to a stainless steel tank and blended with a touch of gueze brewed in February 2010. Pouring a bright pink color with a fruity aroma this crisp, refreshing beer has hints of cherry and finishes slightly tart.
The event starts at 6pm and runs through 9pm.
The New Old Lompoc opened on May 6th, 2000. The Old Lompoc Brewery (as it was formerly known) has been producing handcrafted ales and lagers since December 1996, while the tavern has been open since 1993.
The New Old Lompoc features a 6 bbl brewhouse that annually produces around 800 bbls. In 2005 the Fifth Quadrant opened with a 7 bbl brewhouse and upgraded to a 15 bbl brewhouse in March 2011 to keep up with added demand from outside draft accounts and bottle sales.
The New Old Lompoc brewery serves both New Old Lompoc and Oaks Bottom Public House with some seasonal beers going to better beer bars and festivals around Portland. The Fifth Quadrant brewery produces all the beer, both bottles and draft, distributed by our distributor Maletis Beverage as well as providing beer to both the Fifth Quadrant and Hedge House pubs
