We had the extreme privilege of attending the 2nd anniversary party for our friends of the OC Beer Blog at Noble Ale Works. It was a great excuse to escape the heat of Northeast LA for some beach time, then to our first trip to Noble for some fantastic beer!
Lucky for us, we arrived on the earlier side for the beloved Naughty Sauce, a 5.4% golden milk stout infused with coffee – which you’ll smell right off the bat. Naughty Sauce ran out fairly quickly as it’s a pretty coveted beer. It looks lighter than it actually drinks, and goes down very, very smooth.
Noble’s other offerings are pictured above, but you couldn’t leave without having some of the Nagel’s Number 2 – a special collaboration stout, barrel aged on nitro, and the namesake of OC Beer Blog founder Gregory Nagel. At 12.5%, the 4 ounce pour was plenty!
Food in the form of a food truck was delicious and inexpensive thanks to Seabirds Truck. If you come across them, a simple grilled corn and some arancini. Yum!
Slaves Against the Machine (a cover band for, you guessed it, Rage Against the Machine), rocked it amidst the barrels of the Noble brewery – not a bad background for a fantastic beer event!
