Craft Brewing And Distilling News for December 4, 2014December 4, 2014
•Long Beach, California-based brewpub Beachwood BBQ and Brewing has launched Beachwood Blendery, a new brewing venture dedicated to re-creating traditional Belgian gueuze- or lambic-style beers in the U.S. Beginning operations at a downtown Long Beach facility this fall, Beachwood Blendery will brew using traditional gueuze methods and ingredients, including unmalted wheat, aged hops and a Belgian water profile. The facility’s barrel room, which has a 1,000-barrel capacity, is temperature-controlled in order to recreate the temperature and humidity of a Belgian barrel room. Beachwood’s first round of lambic-style brews—to be known as the Propagation Series—are set to launch by mid-2015, with a series of tropical fruit- and spice-flavored offerings to follow.
