Black is Beautiful – Collaborative Effort

By cwa-blog, event

Black is Beautiful

California Wild Ales had been working on a Bourbon Barrel-Aged Dark Sour … and when Weathered Souls introduced the Black is Beautiful initiative we knew we had to be a part of it. Introducing our very first Dark Sour… Black is Beautiful.

The Black is Beautiful initiative, created by Weathered Souls Brewing Co., is a collaborative effort amongst the brewing community and its customers, in an attempt to bring awareness to the injustices that many people of color face daily.

100% of this beer’s proceeds will go to support Color of Change.  Color of Change leads campaigns that build real power for Black communities. They challenge injustice, hold corporate and political leaders accountable, commission game-changing research on systems of inequality, and advance solutions for racial justice that can transform our world.

Made in collaboration with our friend Samantha Olsen, we chose a grain bill extremely reminiscent of an Imperial Stout. Coming in around 9% abv, it has a light pleasant roasted character with deep notes of plum and a malty sweetness to compliment the acidity for an extremely well balanced sour stout/dark sour.  This beer has been aged in bourbon barrels for 10 months and bottle conditioned for an additional 6 weeks.  This beer was just about ready when the Black is Beautiful initiative was created so we bottled it up and got involved.

Only (100) 500ml bottles total, so make sure to reserve your bottles today.

Pick up available starting Saturday, August 1st at 12 pm.

If you are unable to pickup on Saturday, August 1st, no worries.   We are open for pickup Wednesday – Sunday 12-3 pm.

ImPEARial Stormtrooper

A long time ago in a mountain town far, far away (Julian CA)… A Band of ImPEARial Stormtroopers deserted from the Empire.   These ImPEARial Stormtroopers stole the plans to the DeathPear and now hold the fate of the galaxy in their hands.  They have joined forces with the Rebel Alliance to help defeat BanAnakin Skywalker and destroy The DeathPear!

Coming in at 7.5% ABV this is our first ever Imperial Sour.

ImPEARial Stormtrooper began with fresh local pears that we handpicked in the beautiful mountain town of Julian, CA.  We combined the Julian Pears and some Saigon Cinnamon and allowed the flavors to meld together for an additional 3 months.  The warm cinnamon flavor with the natural sweetness of the pears is the perfect pastry sour.

We only have (100) 500ml bottles, so make sure to reserve your bottles today.  Bottles are available for pickup on May 4th.

Black and Blue Barrel-Aged Sour Beer- California Wild Ales

Black & Blue – A Jammy Sour Beer

By cwa-blog, event

Black & Blue is a Jammy Good Time!

California Wild Ales is excited for the release of Black & Blue, our Barrel-Aged Golden Sour racked onto Carlsbad Blueberries and Oregon Blackberries.

Using the Carlsbad Blueberry as the base, we added tons of Oregon Blackberry Puree.  Rich dark blackberry and bright blueberry flavor combine for a light red-wine on the nose backed by just a touch of lambic-style funk.  Super jammy with a crisp finish.

Pickup will begin on Wednesday, April 8th at noon.

We are only releasing (60) 500ml bottles of Black & Blue so make sure to reserve your bottles today.  These will go fast!

Gose Loco: Margarita Sour!

By cwa-blog, event

It’s Fiesta Time!

Our Gose Loco is ready and we are excited for you to try this one!

First we soaked some Hungarian Oak with Añejo Tequila for 2 months.  When that was ready we added it to our Barrel-Aged Golden Sour Beer.  We then added fresh Bearss Limes that we picked in Escondido, CA.  To round out the flavors we added Sea Salt and Agave Nectar.  The result is GOSE LOCO… a Margarita Sour that is as delicious as it sounds.

We only bottled (80) 500ml bottles and one keg.  We will be tapping the keg and releasing the bottles on August 24th.  You will not want to miss this one.

We are proud to be San Diego’s only all barrel-aged sour house and we are constantly striving to bring you new funky brews.  As always we keep 10 sours on tap at our tasting room.  If you are looking to take your tastebuds on a funky adventure … visit our tasting room and enjoy a Gose Loco Flight (Gose Loco served 3 ways).  We are open 6 days a week Tuesday-Sunday.
