Ovila Abbey Ales
Mixed pack of Belgian-style ales (750ml), 7-9.2%
These collaboration ales are shipping now. This series utilizes cherries, citrus, and sage, grown on the Abbey of New Clairaux’s 600-acre grounds in Vina, CA. The price point is a little higher, but remember, these are the big bottles.
Irish Red, 5.0%
Epidemic hit the East Bay running last year by offering a number of popular beers right off the bat. In the coming week, they will release Red Plague, a malty red ale with a dry finish. If you don’t get out to Concord, there are a number of places in the Bay Area pouring their stuff, including Diving Dog in Oakland and Golden Gate Tap Room in SF.
