Lompoc Brewing has two upcoming release parties this month, both taking place at Sidebar, Lompoc’s Barrel Tasting Room and Bottleshop, located at 3901 N Williams Ave, just around the corner from the Fifth Quadrant Brewpub.  

On Wednesday, March 9 from 4pm to close is the draft and bottle release of Barrel Aged Derail Olde Ale, a collaboration with Lompoc bartender Cody Bottorff. This English style Olde Ale was aged in Heaven Hill Distillery Rye Whiskey barrels for eight months and features a fruity nose with a malty body and flavors of toffee, oak and a hint of sherry. 5.6% ABV. 

Then on Wednesday, March 16 from 4pm to close, enjoy “Night of the Living Red,” a party featuring six red Lompoc beers. Patrons can purchase a taster tray of all six beers for $12, or buy each beer individually. Look for the following on tap:

Dagda: Lompoc’s St. Patrick’s Day seasonal is a Pan-Gaelic Red Ale that features a malty body with caramel flavors, a touch of smoke and a tart finish. 5.5% ABV

Proletariat Red: Deep chestnut in color, this red features toasted malt with biscuit undertones leading to caramelized pear and cinnamon. This beer strikes a good balance between malt and hops. 6.2% ABV, 2015 GABF Silver Medal Winner American Style Amber/Red
