Painted Cave Porter Release at Santa Barbara Brewing Company


If you missed the photo essay of a brew night at Santa Barbara Brewing Company, you may want to visit that here. It’s a good way to look back at a beer being born.

That beer is Painted Cave Robust American Dark Ale, or RAD, and it is being released at Brewco on Tuesday, Oct. 29. Painted Cave, a collaboration brew between myself and Santa Barbara Brewing Company, is something like a cross between a Robust Porter and an American IPA. It was based off one of my homebrew recipes that has always been a favorite of my friends and family, and is part of a series of beers that brewmaster Kevin Pratt hopes to brew with local writers and bloggers.

I will have more information on the brew night itself in the Nov. 7 Santa Barbara News Press for my monthly column. That same column will appear hear on the 21st or sometime soon after. In the meantime, I leave you with a text sent to me from Kevin this morning describing the beer.

The unofficial release party starts at 7 p.m. and is open to the public. There is no cost to get in.

Update – there’s a little more info about the event here on the facebook page as well.
