cis_logoJoin us at the pub on Wednesday, September 30th at 6:30 p.m. when we welcome Cismontane Brewing Company of Southern California for a very special Birmingham Launch Party!

The word “cismontane” means “this side of the mountains” and references Cismontane Brewing Company’s picturesque setting on the side of the largest mountain in Orange County in the city of Rancho Santa Margarita, California.  From this beautiful location, founders Evan Weinberg and Ross Stewart have made it their mission to create only the finest beers that properly “represent the unique culture and diverse natural aspects of this region.”  To further show their dedication to the region in which they brew, each Cismontane Brewing offering is named after a local feature that is unique to the area.

Cismontane Brewing Company has recently expanded their distribution to include the great state of Alabama, and we could not be more excited to host them for an official Birmingham Launch Party on Wednesday, September 30th.  For this event, Owner Evan Weinberg will be hanging out at the pub to chat with attendees about his brewery and their lineup of beers.  Speaking of beers, we will be pouring up the following four Cismontane Brewing offerings during this event:

  • The Citizen California Common Lager – The California Common almost disappeared after prohibition as did the term Cismontane. Our interpretation of this style is a golden warm fermented lager with sufficient hop aroma. As a brewer and citizen of Cismontane California it is our obligation to produce a fine Californian Common.  ABV – 4.5%  IBUs – 45
  • Coulter I.P.A. – Named after the coulter big cone pine tree this is a well-balanced I.P.A. It brings the beer style back to its roots. Brewed with a hit of rye for head retention and a deeper malt character, this beer has the best of all worlds, great hop aroma, a strong body and deceiving strength.  ABV – 6%  IBUs – 45
  • Whiting’s Wit – more info to come
  • Schralp Saison – more info to come

This is going to be a really fun event that allows you to try several beers from an exciting brewery that is new to our state.  We hope that you all can join us on Wednesday to give Evan Weinberg and Cismontane Brewing Company a proper welcome to The J. Clyde and the Magic City!  See you all then!
