Beer lovers rejoice! Beachwood BBQ & Brewing has announced that it will (finally!) start bottling its amazing craft beer. Barely two years old and brewing on a mere 10 bbl system, Beachwood BBQ has already won several awards — including gold and bronze at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival.
First bottled brew will be Beachwood’s ever-coveted Tovarish Russian Imperial Espresso Stout in 22oz. bottles. Brewed on Beachwood’s tiny 10-barrel system, Tovarish is a bold Russian imperial stout brewed with a base of British Maris Otter barley, heaping amounts of roasted barley, and specialty malts. It is finished with a touch of blackstrap molasses along with a custom roasted coffee blend by Portola Coffee Lab in Costa Mesa, CA. “Tovarish is a very special brew to the Beachwood family and we’re looking forward to sharing the love,” notes Beachwood Brewmaster & Co-Owner, Julian Srago.
Official release is scheduled for December 14th at Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach, CA. Tovarish bottles will also be available at various local Los Angeles and CA retailers.
