Los Angeles, Calif. — Angelenos know how powerful a pair can be – Kobe and Shaq, avocado and toast, Venice Beach and Abbot Kinney. This holiday season, Angel City Brewery is releasing another dynamic LA duo, Baltic Porter and Sunbather #2. These two distinct beers will have your December drink needs covered, with the first perfect for seasonal sipping and the second a quintessential quencher. Four-packs of 16 oz. cans will be released on Saturday, December 16th from 12-4 pm.
The first of the duo is Baltic Porter, an exceptionally dark beer with a black opaque appearance and slightly smoky aroma. Unlike traditional porters, Baltic porters use lager yeast which results in a velvety smooth and slightly sweet beer. Featuring notes of dark chocolate, licorice and toasted bread, this porter is brewed with a variety of malt, including pale chocolate malt, wheat, beechwood smoked malt, CaraFoam and black pearl. Baltic Porter has an ABV of 7.2% and IBU of 30.
The counterpart to the Baltic is the Sunbather #2, the sequel in the Sunbather collection. This sour single hop session features Amarillo hops and has an ABV of 4.2% with an IBU of 16. With a slightly hazy golden yellow appearance and a refreshingly tart taste, Sunbather #2 is perfect to enjoy while soaking up the LA sun, or hosting a holiday party.
All are invited to celebrate the launch of the new canned beers at Angel City Brewery on Saturday, December 16th from 12-4 pm at the two-can release party. The first 50 people to purchase a pack will receive a Baltic Porter and Sunbather #2 art poster. While at the brewery, make sure to check out Arts District Daze happening throughout the neighborhood. Arts District Dazeis a monthly block party with special art events, exclusive menu item, sales and music. Follow the yellow balloons around the neighborhood to check out participating locations.
“We are continuing to expand our canning program, and this double beer drop of Baltic Porter and Sunbather #2 is an excellent addition to the lineup,” said Layton Cutler, Head Brewer at Angel City Brewery. “Baltic Porter is typically bottled, so it will be nice to have an easy-to-sip and carry can package for drinkers to bring to holiday events.”
