To Øl Black Maria Ale

To Øl Black Maria Ale: This take on the American black IPA craze is crafted by “gypsy” brewers in Copenhagen, Denmark, where they borrow the equipment of existing beer factories to focus on special and small bottlings.

Not quite as overly malted as the New World versions, the 750 ml Black Maria is chocolate-laced and grapefruit-tinged with very present yeastiness and pronounced hoppiness, offering an intense, bitter, and wholly unique ale experience.

Available at Bin 2860 in Los Olivos. See and
