Lompoc Brewing Launches First Pair of Bottled Six Packs

Lompoc Brewing releases six-pack bottles for two of its popular IPAs

Portland, OR – For the first time in its 20-year history, Lompoc Brewing has released six-pack carriers with 12 oz. longneck bottles, featuring Pamplemousse Citrus IPA and C-Note IPA.

Mobile Bottling Source did a first run of 17,000 bottles at Lompoc’s Fifth Quadrant Brewery on March 24, and the six-packs have recently begun appearing on store shelves throughout Oregon and Washington. The six-packs will complement, not replace, Lompoc’s current lineup of 22-oz bottles.

“The craft brewing market in retail stores has become flooded with 22-oz bottles,” explained Lompoc owner Jerry Fechter. “We wanted to stand out, and provide our fans with greater options. Adding six-packs achieved both of these goals.”

Local artist Jennifer Ulrich carried out the six-pack carrier designs, which were based upon the original label artwork by Woody Adams and Andrew MacKenize of WAAMCo.

C-Note, Lompoc’s flagship IPA, has been around nearly as long as the brewery; it was first brewed for the Horse Brass Pub’s 25th anniversary party in 2001. The beer was called C-Note because of its 100 IBUs. This highly hopped ale has a deep copper to orange hue with a bold aroma of pine and herbal spice. Hints of toffee and caramel are followed by a citrus finish that is dry and refreshingly bitter (6.9% ABV).

Pamplemousse is a deep golden hued, medium-bodied citrus IPA. Four hop varieties, along with real grapefruit juice, build a solid hop bitterness highlighted by citrus notes, both on the tongue and in the nose (5.8% ABV).

The six-packs are currently available at Lompoc’s Fifth Quadrant and Sidebar locations, retailing for $11 in-house; they will be available at all five pubs in a few weeks. Retail pricing varies at grocery stores and bottle shops.
