Loakal Red is an oak aged American red ale. A tribute to the growing Orange County beer scene. Loakal Red is a hoppy red ale at heart, The Bruery, like many other SoCal brewers, chose the citrus and floral notes of the Centennial hop to balance the light caramel sweetness of the malt. But, of course, they couldn’t leave well enough alone. So, a portion of an older batch, left to mature in new American oak barrels, is blended with the fresh dry-hopped batch. The resulting blend has notes of toffee, orange peel, crushed herbs, vanilla & freshly sawn oak, for a beer that is intricate, yet unassuming.
Loakal Red pairs well with rabbit confit, steak tartar, seared venison and cornbread.
