Angel City Brewery Releases Sunbather Session Pale Ale for LA Beer Week

Los Angeles, CA — Just in time for LA Beer Week, Angel City Brewery is excited to release their first-ever limited beer in 16-ounce cans. Starting June 23rd at 4pm, fans will be able to grab four-packs of the ever-popular Sunbather, a kettle soured session pale ale at the brewery, while supplies last.

Sunbather, which has an ABV of 4.2%, is a slightly hazy golden beer dry hopped with Citra hops. With a citrusy aroma, Sunbather is refreshingly tart and juicy and is the perfect beer to enjoy while soaking up that warm California sun.

“When I first brewed Sunbather late last summer, we weren’t quite sure how dry hopping a sour beer would turn out, but deep down I knew I was onto something,” said Angel City Brewery Brewer Tyler Thurman. “I kept refining the recipe and we ended up with a sour session beer that I think is perfect for combating the summer heat. That’s a part of being a brewer, passionately reworking a recipe until it is sipping perfection.”

Because Angel City doesn’t have its own canning line, the brewery worked with Beer Monks Mobile Canning. The Sierra Madre-based company brought its canning line to the brewery, and in less than a few hours, an entire batch of beer was canned. Angel City is also planning to launch its much-anticipated Avocado Ale in cans this August.

Sunbather will be available during LA Beer Week on draft at the Public House and at LA Beer Week events June 17-25. Fans are invited to come to Angel City Brewery on June 23rd 4 to 6 pm for the Sunbather Can Launch Party.

Angel City Brewery brews beer for the greater LA area and beyond at their Downtown based brewery in the heart of the Arts District. The brewery’s Public House features a 19-tap bar that serves an ever-changing roster of classic and newly inspired beer, and is open seven days a week with a full calendar of events ranging from trivia nights to art shows, live music and festivals. The Public House is open Monday-Thursday, 4:00pm – 1:00am, Friday 4:00pm – 2:00am, Saturday 12:00pm – 2:00am and Sunday 12:00pm – 1:00am.
