San Diego, Calif. — AleSmith Brewing Company has released a limited supply of its 2015 Decadence Anniversary Ale to celebrate its 20th year in production.
AleSmith’s Decadence Anniversary Ale was originally brewed in 2005 to celebrate the brewery’s first decade in business. Every year since, AleSmith’s brewers have commemorated their anniversary with a special beer in a new style. Now, ten years after brewing the first beer of the Decadence Series, the company is releasing a special hand-forged edition to celebrate their 20th anniversary: a Belgian Amber.
This complex, amber-hued ale was brewed with a substantial amount of Belgian and European malts that complement the spiciness imparted by Belgian abbey yeast. The result is a perfect balance between rich, toasty maltiness, Belgian Candi sugar and the light, floral profile of European hops. Customers can enjoy this hearty Belgian-inspired brew now or age at a cool temperature to increase its complexities.
To further commemorate its 20th anniversary, AleSmith is opening a new, state-of-the-art brewery, featuring a new 80-barrel brew system and larger tasting room. The new facility, which is just two blocks away from the original location, features a 105,500-square-foot space to allow the company to increase production ten-fold before reaching capacity. The new location will open later this year.
