BIG BAD BAER
Like a slumbering bear this Imperial Stout aged in whiskey barrels for nine months before moving into port barrels for another few months of rest. We added a kiss of orange peel, copious amounts of cacao nibs and Handlebar Coffee from right here in Santa Barbara. This beer is a nod to our new family at Epic Brewing, but created with just the right touches to keep it Uniquely Californian.
Telegraph California Ale is our flagship beer and is our interpretation of the unique ales that were commonly brewed up and down the West Coast in the 19th century. It is an unfiltered medium-bodied beer, with a rich amber color and a rocky, white head. The beer is crafted using domestic American ingredients and fermented with a unique yeast strain that accentuates the hoppy spiciness, while also imparting fruity and subtly tart flavors. The aromas are spicy and earthy, reminiscent of the rich agricultural valleys surrounding Santa Barbara.
A classic, brewed with coriander, orange peel, and locally grown chamomile flowers. It is called "white ale" because of the pale, cloudy color. A light aroma of orange and a zesty mouthfeel ensure that Telegraph White Ale is the perfect accompaniment to long summer days and fresh, flavorful farmer's market cuisine.
