Lompoc Brewing is releasing Proletariat Red in six-packs of 12 oz. cans. To celebrate the occasion, Lompoc is selling six-packs for a mere $6!! This special pricing is available only during the Proletariat Red Can Kickoff BBQ on June 17 at the Fifth Quadrant. I'm a big fan of red ales, and this one is no slouch. It won a silver medal at the 2015 Great American Beer Festival.
In addition, the brewery is launching a new Select Series. The first release, Barrel Aged Red on Rye was aged in Heaven Hill Rye Whiskey barrels for 10 months. Sounds pretty tasty to me. For more details, check out the news release below.
and announces Barrel Aged Select Series in bottles
PORTLAND, Ore. – Lompoc Brewing’s award-winning Proletariat Red is now available in 12 oz. cans, sold as a six-pack, joining the flagship beer’s availability on draft and in 22 oz. bottles. The cans can be purchased at the brewery’s Fifth Quadrant and Sidebar locations (3901 N Williams Ave.), and in select stores throughout the Portland metropolitan area.
Lompoc has announced a BBQ party to celebrate the release of the cans on Saturday, June 17, from 4pm to 9pm at its Fifth Quadrant pub. There will be corn hole games, prizes, BBQ food specials and a fire pit. The six packs will feature special pricing that day, and the brewery’s Lömpocker Hoppy Kölsch and new Lomporter will be available on draft. Admission to the event is free.
A silver medal winner at the 2015 Great American Beer Festival, Proletariat Red is deep chestnut in color, and features toasted malt with biscuit undertones leading to caramelized pear and cinnamon. It strikes a complementary balance between malt and hops, and weighs in at 6.2% ABV.
Lompoc is also debuting a new Select Series later this month: Barrel Aged Red on Rye will be released in 500ml bottles and on draft on Thursday, June 22 at 4pm at Sidebar. Barrel Aged Red on Rye was aged in Heaven Hill Rye Whiskey barrels for 10 months. Crimson in color, it features oak in the nose to complement a malty body with caramel flavors. It was brewed with Rauch malt, giving off a touch of smoke and acidulated malt giving off a slight tartness (6% ABV).
