Eagle Rock Brewery

Best Locally Brewed Beer, August 2011
Falling somewhere on the spectrum between Warheads and fruit juice, sour beers stem from an ancient Belgian tradition. The late spring release of Yearling, from the Eagle Rock Brewery, has L.A.’s beer geeks bubbling with local pride. This “Flanders red”-style sour smells of roses and tastes like cake yeast cloaked in frosting. Follow the brewery on Twitter to learn when the next batch goes on tap, or look for rare appearances at Verdugo Bar and Blue Palms Brewhouse.
