Wanna try something totally different and surprisingly refreshing?  

Aromas of earth, grain, spice and some fruit notes. The sake yeast much give it those refreshing and slightly tart notes. This 9.2% ABV beer doesn't taste it. Hints of pineapple and passion fruit make it an awesome Los Angeles beer. Great experiement gone right, in fermentation. Well done, Angel City.

Here’s more from the brewery:

Inspired by the brewery’s neighbors in Little Tokyo, Angel City has combined their brewing expertise with traditional Japanese sake fermentation methods to create a unique style of beer. The rich, complex flavors derived from a traditional sake-style rice and koji fermentation balance naturally with the malted barley and hops. Huge floral notes blend with fruit flavors of pear and pineapple, then round out with a signature, dry finish. A bold experiment in brewing, For the Sake of Ale weighs in at 9.2% ABV.

“This is one of our greatest brewing experiments to date,” said Angel City brewer, Layton Cutler. “We’re excited about the beer, and the fact that it has a relevant cultural reference. Being next to Little Tokyo and in such a diverse neighborhood, there is constant inspiration and this is one great result.”

Starting November 20th, For the Sake of Ale will be available in limited 22oz bottles at the Angel City Public House and very limited draft throughout Los Angeles. Use the beer finder to locate it outside of the Public House:
