A couple of years ago when La Verne Brewing Company first opened my husband and I went there to try their brews. I like to go to places when they first open (Claremont Craft Ales, Alosta Brewing. . .), but there is also the risk that the new places in a rush to open put out beer that is not quite ready. So, while we thought La Verne Brewing Company was decent, we didn’t make the drive back out to buy the brews since there are other good places. But, I did sign up for their e-newsletter and have been intrigued by some of the brews (and entertainment) they advertise.
So, we’ve moved, we’re in a new location, and were looking for something to do on Independence Day. We ended up at La Verne Brewing Company. The had the Women’s World Cup Soccer on the large screen television and six brews on tap. We opted for a tasting flight of four brews, and sat down to enjoy. We tried:
- “B” Street – A pineapple blonde – 5.2%
- Hacienda – An orange cream ale – 5.1%
- Lordsburg – A double IPA – 8.9%
- Old Flathead – An oatmeal stout – 6.6%
Both my husband and I liked the oatmeal stout. I thought the pineapple blonde was okay, as well as the double IPA (I wished it had a bit more hop taste, but that’s just me). But we really both liked the orange cream ale. So much so, we bought a growler and took home a few pints of that!
Our next brewery to (re)try will be Alosta Brewing!
