To celebrate our anniversary coming up on the 17th of May, our Smog City staff got together to brew a special release!

Anni, as we affectionately refer to it, is a Strong Saison brewed with Merlot. We used Galaxy and Meridian hops,with wheat, pilsner and oats. A light pinkish hue and delicious Belgian character will set this beer apart.

Here’s a look at our brew day! Not pictured: Laurie, but she was most certainly there doing hop additions, making coffee and taking all of these photos!

Join us May 17th 12-8pm for our Anniversary Event at the brewery. We’ll be releasing Anni as well as other special limited releases (to be announced) plus a Limited Anniversary Growler with a new design!! It’s gonna knock your socks off. And if that’s not enough, we are anticipating a major announcement that will coincide with this event, but we’re not quite ready to let you in on that little secret…not quite yet.

RSVP on our Facebook event page to learn about updates on this event.
