Still Life is brewed with golden naked oats, which contribute to the smooth creamy feel. “Still Life is made with malt that is smoked in-house, taking the same wood blend used to smoke Beachwood’s famous BBQ,” says Brewmaster Julian Shrago. “It provides a subtle smokiness that comes through in the finished beer.”
The stouts label features an original design by Beachwood regular and Still Life Tattoo owner, Tim Shelton. “Tim is an amazing artist with a penchant for stouts. He’s been coming to Beachwood since our doors opened,” says Beachwood BBQ Co-Founder Gabe Gordon.
The bold, silky, complex stout—originally brewed to commemorate the one year anniversary of Still Life Tattoo in Seal Beach, CA on September 22, 2011—truly embodies the friendship between Still Life Tattoo and Beachwood BBQ & Brewing. “We were thrilled when Tim asked us to brew a beer to celebrate the opening of his shop in Seal Beach; we are even more excited to release it in bottled form,” concludes Gordon.
In celebration of the Still Life release, Beachwood will be hosting an art show curated by Tim Shelton. The show, featuring the work of local artists, will be held at the downtown Long Beach brewpub on June 7 at 6pm. “This collaboration marries Beachwood’s creative spirit with Still Life’s artistry,” explains Shelton. “We are both extremely dedicated to our craft.”
Still Life will be sold in 22 oz. bottles at finer craft beer retailers throughout Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties. The stout will also be available on draft at both Beachwood BBQ locations.
