The kickoff event for always eagerly anticipated San Francisco Beer Week is The Bistro Double IPA Fest in Hayward. For the Third year our own El Segundo Brewing Co. entered their craft beers into this prestigious competition. Their Hammerland took the Gold!
“This competition which is in its 15th year, included 63 Double IPAs mainly from California, and all of them are in the best possible condition they could be. Most of the kegging dates are within a week, and many breweries brew beers specifically for this Fest. A win here, in our not so humble opinion, is a true distinction of having the best hoppy beer in the land.”
On Friday March 20th is a celebration of winning the Gold for Hammerland. Beer enthusiasts are invited to The Brewery in El Segundo. Beginning at Noon it’s a party with Hammerland bottles available for sale right off the bottling line.
In the “Saturday” section of The Los Angeles Times on February 21st El Segundo Brewing Co’s Mayberry IPA was their “Beer of the Month.”
ESBC’s certified Cicerone, Thomas Kelley, is with us to celebrate the big win and explain the significance of this huge honor!
