Los Angeles’ downtown craft brewery, Angel City Brewing, introduced today a sake-inspired brew dubbed “For the Sake of Ale” in 22oz bombers.
Here’s more from the brewery:
Inspired by the brewery’s neighbors in Little Tokyo, Angel City has combined their brewing expertise with traditional Japanese sake fermentation methods to create a unique style of beer. The rich, complex flavors derived from a traditional sake-style rice and koji fermentation balance naturally with the malted barley and hops. Huge floral notes blend with fruit flavors of pear and pineapple, then round out with a signature, dry finish. A bold experiment in brewing, For the Sake of Ale weighs in at 9.2% ABV.
The beer is available in limited quantities on draft outside the brewery. Find out where here.
