Another Beer Country pioneer is celebrating an anniversary, with North Coast Brewing in Fort Bragg marking 25 years of beer, with the Twenty-fifth Anniversary Ale. The beer is a “Belgian-inspired session beer,” made with the same yeast strain used to make the Le Merle Belgian Style Farmhouse Ale.
The beer weighs in at just 4 percent alcohol by volume, a mild drinker the brewery describes as “designed to promote a festive mood while minimizing the consequences of overindulgence.”
The result, the brewery says, is “sharp and spritzy with a delicious flowery, spicy dry-hop aroma.”
The beer will be available on tap at various bars and restaurants and in 750 ml bottles, but the bottles are only available at the brewery itself.
