It’s almost time for San Diego Beer Week (SDBW)! America’s Finest City AKA the “Craft Beer Capital,” is dedicating 10 days exclusively to beer!
At Longship Brewery, there will be a few marquee events that beer lovers and our loyal fans cannot miss. Here is a list of what is happening in the Longship Brewery tasting room during San Diego Beer Week 2017:
Friday, November 3rd - Oaked Ragnabock Release
Join us as we start off San Diego Beer Week with a bang! We took a our award-winning Ragnabock and put it in a keg with bourbon-barrel oak chips for six months, marinating their bold flavors together. This delicious beer has massive vanilla and oak notes that combine with the already deep toffee and dark fruit flavors in the beer.
We only made one keg of it, so jump into Beer Week with the Oaked Ragnabock before it’s gone! Event starts at 5 p.m. PST.
Sunday, November 5th - Homebrew Dunkelweizen Release
Building on our foundation of homebrewing appreciation, we are launching a very special collaboration beer brewed with our first-ever Homebrew Competition winners, Jared Rowley and Doug Brown.
The winning beer, Aegir’s Omen, is a well-rounded and balanced Dunkelweizen with a slight banana/clove aroma and smooth flavor. Jared and Doug helped brew the 10 barrel version with us and we are all excited to release it on 11/5 for all of our guests to enjoy. Event starts at 3 p.m. PST.
Tuesday, November 7th - Beer Trivia + Flavor Battle
Our weekly dose of Trivia Tuesday will be getting the beer week treatment with a special round dedicated to beer knowledge! In addition, beertenders Chuck and Ryan will be squaring off to see who creates the best Randall infusion.
Ryan has chosen a Tart Cherry version of our Sunstone Pilsner while Chuck has made a Ginger Root version of our Seafarer Gose! It’s up to you to decide who chose best! Food will also be available via The Carver, Coal and Barrel. Event starts at 6 p.m. PST.
