Unity, the official beer of LA Beer Week, will officially be unveiled at 5 p.m. Friday release party at Three Weavers Brewery in Inglewood.

Unity is a collaboration between members of the LA County Brewers Guild and its annual creation — the beer can be quite different, but boasts the same name each year — rotates among members of the nonprofit.

This year’s version uses an experimental hop so new it doesn’t have a name, said brewmaster Alexandra Nowell.

The 7.4% abv brew has “bright notes of lemon zest, stone fruit, and a satisfyingly resinous finish,” she said.

“I was impressed by the character of the raw hop,” Nowell said. “It has a bright orange character and a subtle pine resin scent. It’s got that quintessential hoppy aroma.”

San Francisco-based artist Nick Fullmer, known for his craft beer label artwork at Sacramento’s Bike Dog Brewing and others was given free-rein to create the funky label.

Unity’s official release party goes from from 5 p.m. to midnight Friday. A full lineup of Three Weavers beer will be on tap and a special art exhibition of Fullmer’s work will remain on display through July.

LA Beer Week starts June 18.
