Boomtown

THREE NEW LIMITED-RELEASE BEERS TONIGHT!

Magic Napper Scottish Style Ale (8.2%): Made with all British ingredients, the malt bill is a blend of pale, brown and caramel. This brew undergoes an extended boil to intensify the caramel aspects of the ale. The mix of sugars create a robust sweet malty base that is balanced by copious additions of East Kent Goldings hops to create a smooth and pleasant bitterness with soft marmalade notes.

Personal Assistant Pale Ale (6%): A hybrid ale, part hoppy American pale ale and part Belgian golden ale. Even the hops are hybrids, part American and part European, lending a nice mix of floral, spice and fruity flavors and aromas. Copper in color, this ale is simple and straight forward yet still has a subtle complexity.

Submission Belgian Golden Strong (8.6%): Belgian inspired ale brewed with classic Belgian ingredients, star jasmine flower and carrot blossom honey. The honey lends rich notes of cedar that creates an intriguing blend of aromatics with the Belgian yeast and Jasmine.


ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT

Ingenue Belgian White Ale (4.8%): This blonde ale is inspired by working-class ales of Hainaut, Belgium. It is a white beer made of Belgian pilsner malt, white winter wheat, rolled oats, and lightly hopped with imported Czech Saaz (which is a “noble” variety of hops named after the Czech city of Žatec, which in German is Saaz). It is then brewed with extremely soft water to create a feeling in your mouth that matches the effects of the oats. The Ingenue is full of sweet bready notes with a nice creamy body, yet it finishes clean and dry.

Limelight IPA (7%): This classic robust IPA is made with a blend of Citra, Amarillo, and Mosaic hops. It has hoppy notes of guava, stone fruit, and grapefruit that are balanced with malty caramel tones and a solid, yet clean bitterness. The Limelight IPA is a big beer with big flavor.

Nosejob IPA (6.8%): A West Coast classic, this IPA is deep gold in color and brimming with a mix of citrus, tropical fruit, and piney hoppiness. The nose is a blend of sweet citrus mixed with deep fruity notes. The Nosejob IPA is hoppy up front, but finishes with a nice balance of light malt sweetness and a clean solid bittering.


FUTURE BREWS

After Hours (5.4%): This session stout ale is a black brew that exudes rich notes of chocolate blended with fresh roasted coffee. Its substantial body is full of roasted notes and deep caramel tones creating a complex blend of malts. A generous helping of rolled oats lends to a velveteen texture and East Kent Golding hops provide balance.

B-Side Red Stout (6.8%): This California version of an Irish Red Ale is a hoppy red ale with a great malt backbone. A blend of pale, crystal, munich and chocolate malts create a rich character to hold up the heaping helpings of Citra and Amarillo hops. Both kettle and dry-hopped, this red stout has most of its roots deep in the hop fields, but just enough malty flavor to make one wonder if it is related to a stout.

Eastside Hopster (8.4%):Double IPAs can be tough as a quality drinking experience can be hampered by too much alcohol or too much hop bittering. Boomtown is simple with its edition: Pilsner malt, bittering hops, and dry hops. A complex blend of aggressive northwestern American hops creates a heavy hop oil aroma, which prepares the palate for the firm, yet smooth  hop flavor and bitter qualities to come. Sweet grassy grain notes from the Pilsner malt are a simple background for solid Columbus hop bitter. These malt background notes, along with a warm alcohol finish, are just enough to support the hops for a mouth-watering experience.

MUSIC

Sumkind: This LA-based electronic musician plays keyboard and guitar while singing supported by heavy sub, grimy bass, and hard drums encapsulated by a world of abstract atmospheric soundscapes. The performance and production alike combine the live improvisational energy of a traditional band with the spectral range and power of a DJ set.

//

Peter Su: If The Beach Boys got together with Leonard Cohen to harmonize over some sweet melodies, you’d get an artist like Peter Su. Before he was a songwriter in LA, Peter used to be a venture capitalist on Sand Hill, investing in startups in the daytime and playing music at night. A few years ago, he realized how blindly ambitious he’d been and left the 9-to-5 path to pursue his lifelong dream to make good, loving music for people, no matter where it led. These days, he spends most of his time songwriting and making people’s days a little more joyful as a street performer on the Santa Monica Pier. This year he went into Sunset Sound to record his debut album “Into the Sea”, a song cycle about his search for his true calling, to be released this January. Besides the pier, you can peep Peter on instagram @petersumusic or find him performing around LA singer-songwriter venues like Room 5 and featuring at festivals such as 626 Night Market.

//

Paper Chains: Diamonds and Jonny formed Paper Chains after relocating from Brooklyn, New York to Los Angeles in 2014. Mixing Art, Fashion and Rock n’ Roll, they draw from their diverse backgrounds into an exciting multimedia experience. Stereo Diamonds’ sexy but smart vocals cut through battling guitars and synths over driving dance rock beats. This wall of sound is created live, without pre-recorded tracks giving the band freedom to push musical boundaries at any time. Paper Chains are currently playing shows along the west coast and recording an EP to be released Independently this fall.

//

Phair_by phatTHIGHz: This LA-based electronic producer/beat maker is in charge of every aspect of her compositions. Using crunchy distortion, crisp high hats, glitched synth lines, samples pulled from public service announcements from the 1950’s, and screwed vocals, the visual translation of Phair’s sets would most likely look like pastel pink liquid melting, combined with color static from a glitched television.

//

Coals: Owen Cole, a 22-year-old Angeleno went to school in Boston where he began studying sound and slowly found the way in which he wants to utilize it. Coals will be releasing a feature-length record in the spring that is heavily influenced from everything like ambient pieces to “chopped n’screwed” tones. Expect to hear some of his sounds along with remixes and tracks from friends and artists that inspire him. There is no guaranteed direction, just simple fun.

DysruptCheck out the beats by Sean Sullivan, a dark and dirty DnB DJ since 1996 and working as DnB production since 2010.
