Angel City Brewery’s Limited Release Series Continues With Imperial Chai Stout

Los Angeles, CA (January 8, 2014) — Angel City Brewery’s Limited Release Series continues with the January 6 launch of an Imperial Chai Stout. Available while supplies last, this special release can be found in 22-ounce bottles in specialty beer stores around Southern California, as well as on tap for a limited time at the Public House.

A big beer that is surprisingly easy to drink, the Imperial Chai Stout is a perfect antidote to a winter night. Full bodied, dark, and rich, with hints of dark chocolate, roasted malt, and Chai, this beer finishes smooth, sweet, and spicy.  To achieve the complexity and depth desired, a series of spice trials were mixed up in the lab and tasted and the result provided a custom house-made Chai blend that was added to the kettle. During fermentation, Angel City’s brewers first used their standard American Ale yeast strain, stopped the fermentation prematurely, and then primed and ran a full second fermentation with a Belgian yeast strain.  Cinnamon, clove, ginger and cardamom notes hit the nose bringing back a hint of the holidays but the deep, rich stout – a word originally meaning brave, proud or strong – takes a turn into more thought provoking territory.

A spicy, soul warming way to banish the winter blues – even if it’s 75 degrees and sunny.

Each season, the staff of brewers at Angel City decide on one Limited Release Series beer to produce in small batches and bottle in special edition, silk screen glass bottles, as well as pour on tap at the Brewery’s Public House. This past November saw the inaugural Special Release with a Vanilla Porter. What’s up next up? You’ll have to wait and see. That’s for the brewers to decide…

The Public House is Angel City’s own 19-tap bar serving an ever-changing roster of classic and newly inspired beer. The bar is open 7 days a week with a full calendar of events ranging from weekly industry and trivia nights, to art shows and live music. Private event space is also available. The Public House is open Monday-Thursday, 4:00pm – 10:00pm, Friday 4:00pm – 12am, Saturday 12:00pm – 12:00am, and Sunday 12:00pm – 10:00pm.
