Figueroa Mountain Black Cone Ale


Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. Big Cone Black American Ale: An ode to the big cone Douglas firs that grow atop the San Rafael Mountains of the Santa Barbara backcountry, this black ale throws off pungent pine aromas from heavy-duty hops. Their skunkiness also lends an herbal backbone to the powerful flavors of this roasted malt-based ale, which tastes much like a dark chocolate-spiked iced espresso.

This is just one of many flavors emerging all the time from “Fig Mountain,” as the brewery —with tap rooms now in Los Olivos, Buellton, and the Funk Zone — is increasingly known along the Central Coast.
