Letter Requesting Outdoor Dining at Brewery Taprooms

As our local breweries are being forced to readjust their business model seemingly on the fly, I have written the following letter which I have sent to Governor Newsom at https://govapps.gov.ca.gov/gov40mail/, Mayor Garcetti at mayor.helpdesk@lacity.org, LA County Supervisor Janice Hahn at FourthDistrict@BOS.LACounty.gov, and the Los Angeles County Health Department at phwebmaster@ph.lacounty.gov. For the “Subject on the emails I used, “Allowing brewery tasting rooms to operate as restaurants.” For the governor’s form they ask if it is pro or con; I selected con, but you can decide for yourself.

4 Giants IPA Added to Limited Series

Founders Brewing Co. has announced 4 Giants IPA as the latest addition to the Limited Series lineup. A mash up of four of the brewery’s favorite imperial IPA recipes, 4 Giants IPA (9.2% ABV) boasts aggressive bitterness balanced by a malty, sweet backbone while huge aromatics come courtesy of the seven American hop varieties.

“The world of IPA is constantly changing and evolving, but this beer really captures the essence of what I think is the classic Imperial IPA,” said Brewmaster Jeremy Kosmicki. “Everything about it is totally in-your-face, but the flavor dynamics still manage to work together to create a well-balanced beer that is extremely fun to drink.”

4 Giants IPA will have a retail price of $10/4-pack and will be available in 12-oz bottles and on draft beginning on March 13 in the Grand Rapids and Detroit taprooms. It will available across the brewery’s 50-state distribution network beginning in April through June 2020. Please note that 4 Giants IPA will not be available on draft in Utah. Please note that prices will vary by market. Continue reading
