Angel City Brewery to Release SaazBerry American Ale

Los Angeles, CA — Brew a beer with blueberry and it tastes like blueberry. Brew a beer with raspberry and it tastes like raspberry. Brew a beer with SaazBerry and it tastes like – well, it can only taste like one thing, right? Inspired by the lickable wallpaper from the confectionery cinema classic, SaazBerry is an American ale with a magical blend of Saaz hops, raspberry, blueberry and elderberry. The hops provide an earthy spiciness, while the fruit purée gives it an aroma of freshly picked berries.

This fruity beer will be available year-round throughout Southern California on draft and in 6-packs beginning Monday, September 4th.It will be available at most Ralphs, 7-Eleven, BevMo and Total Wine locations.

This bright violet ale with a fuchsia head has an IBU of 25 and ABV of 4.8%. SaazBerry will be the fifth beer to join Angel City’s year-round family, which includes Angel City IPA, Pilsner, LAger and Citrus Wheat.

“It was about a year ago when we came up with the idea for SaazBerry without any real intention of making a big deal about it. We just loved the concept and loved the name” said Layton Cutler, Head Brewer at Angel City Brewery. “Not long after it was on tap at the Public House, we realized we had a total hit on our hands. We’re thrilled to finally be bringing it outside the brewery.”

Angelenos are invited to step into Angel City’s brew house where dreams become a reality to celebrate SaazBerry at Saaztoberfest, September 16th and 17th 12 pm to 8 pm. This adult Candy Land-meets-Oktoberfest event will feature a sweet treat themed Beer Bazaar, SaazBerry beer cocktails, live music by Munich Boom-Steiners and live mural painting by Cale, the artist behind the mural featured on the SaazBerry 6-pack.
