Torrance’s Absolution Brewing, which specializes in English-style ales that generally tone down the hops, introduces the California Common to its lineup today:
The California Common, or Steam Beer, is a unique 100% American style lager. It’s brewed with a special strain of lager yeast that works better at warmer temperatures. This method dates back to the late 1800′s in California when refrigeration was a great luxury. The brewers back then had to improvise to cool the beer down, so shallow fermenters were used. The lager yeast was trained to ferment quicker at warmer temperatures.
A few weeks after hosting a Stone Brewing release party, Alpine Village near Torrance is at it again beginning at 5 p.m. today marking the release of the San Diego County brewery’s latest release: Enjoy by 3-14-15 IPA.
