Drake’s Brewing Aroma Coma India Pale Ale
Tonight’s featured beer is Drake’s Brewing Aroma Coma India Pale Ale. As I said in a previous post I’m a big fan of Drake’s Brewing. I had heard about Aroma Coma and knew I had to find some to drink (and review).
From the Drake’s Brewing website:” Brewed annually since 2009, this summer seasonal IPA is made each year for a local IPA festival, where, this year it was selected one of the top three beers in the competition. We start with almost all 2-row barley malt and a touch of Caramalt for body. Abundant Cascade, Chinook, CTZ and Citra hops lend citrus, pine and floral notes, and a double round of dry-hopping amps up the aroma to a new level. Breathe in the hops an enjoy.”
website:“On the First Friday of every month, we here at Drake’s open our doors (or more accurately our outdoor lot) to friends, family and our local community to benefit a worthy local cause. With all of our beers on tap and a couple seasonals too, music on the speakers and great food from a local food truck or vendor cooking in the corner, the night takes on the vibe of a fantastic monthly block party with all our friends and neighbors. From old friends and family to Drake’s newbies, all are welcome to come and mingle outside and enjoy a favorite Drake’s beer. Major Bonus: all the fun benefits local schools and non-profits. Make sure you make it to our next First Friday for a great cause and a good time outside our brewery.
The next Drake’s First Friday is October 7, from 4 pm-8 pm, benefiting the the Assumption School in San Leandro”
