Hop Tarts Beer Release
On Sunday, March 9, 2014, local women’s brew group, Hop Tarts, celebrated the International Women’s Collaboration Brew Day at Pure Order Brewing Co. by brewing a commercial batch of beer. The group is sponsored by Valley Brewers and Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. and was created in order to encourage women to learn more about beer. The group, along with local brewers like Kevin Pratt of Santa Barbara Brewing Co, James and David Burge from Pure Order Brewing Co., would like to empower more women find jobs in beer production.
The collaboration beer will be released on Saturday, April 26, 2014 starting at noon at Pure Order Brewing Co. Enjoy live music, a food truck and beer tasting including the new release in their brand new tasting room and brewery.
Hop Tart Saison starts off with a light straw color and a bit of haziness created by the small amount of wheat that is in the beer. Hits your nose with a tropical fruit aroma in the foreground and a light pepper/earthy aroma backing up the minimal malt aroma nicely. At first sip the beer has a mild smooth malt sweetness and a hoppy dry finish as it leaves you ready for the next sip.
