ORIGINAL DRAFTS: NEW SEASONAL TAPS

ORIGINAL DRAFTS: NEW SEASONAL TAPS Monday, May 23, 2011

At The Original, we’ve recently swapped out all four of our draft beers. This means you can say “goodbye” to winter beers and hello to four new “springy” ones. And remember, all of our draft beer is pressurized with a 60/40 combination of nitrogen and carbon dioxide, so that the beer in your glass always taste great and always goes down easy.

Among our new taps are:

  • Portland’s Old Lompoc’s Strong Draft (LSD), a 6.9 percent ABV brew made from six hops and seven malts, including an extra dash of a smoked eighth
  • Victory’s Pils (Downington, Pennsylvania), a German-style pilsner, hopped with whole flower German and Czech hops, and the cure for thirst on a sunny day
  • Anderson Valley’s Boont Amber Ale (from Mendocino’s famed sun-powered brewery), a 5.8 ABV coppery, caramel-malted amber that’s far less sweet than other ambers
  • Racer 5 IPA (Cloverdale, California’s Bear Republic Brewery), a 7 percent ABV, family-brewed IPA made with Cascade, Centennial, Chinook and Columbus hops.

And remember to keep your eyes on our draft handles, because these beers won’t last long—once they’re gone, we’ll rotate them out for the next seasonal brew.
