ORIGINAL DRAFTS: OLD LOMPOC’S PROLETARIAT RED ALE Tuesday, March 22, 2011
It should come as no surprise that the city once dubbed Little Beirut by President George H.W. Bush’s entourage during a trip to Portland should champion a working-class beer for working-class people.
“Work is the curse of the drinking class,” say the homegrown brewers of the New Old Lompoc, one of city’s scrappiest mirco breweries, located just a couple of miles away in Northwest Portland.
As one of our seasonally rotating handles, The Original serves up daily pints of Old Lompoc’s Proletarian Red Ale, a reasonably potent, balanced, full-bodied, malty moderately bittered amber ale for Portlanders of all social and political stripes.
And during every day of every week, this brew, along with our other three drafts, are available at discounted rates during happy hour.
Of course, if you work in the food services industry, don’t forget that when you show us your SIN credentials, every hour is happy hour!
So belly on up and raise your glass of this uncommon brew to toast the things we most share in common.
