We are excited to offer Alpine Brewing Pure Hoppiness for the first time in our history. This highly regarded ale has been cask conditioned in the new Ritual firkin. Yes, Pure Hoppiness is on cask tonight at the Ritual.
The Mcilhenney family produced beer initially in collaboration with AleSmith and then in their own small brewery half way up the mountain just east of us. The limited availability of Alpine beers did not stop a growing fanatical following from seeking out their amazing creations. Alpine's unique vision helped define the San Diego regions widely recognized brewing culture.
Peter Rowe of the San Diego Union Tribune credits Pure Hoppiness as one of a handful of ales that define the Double IPA style, “An exemplar of the style, Pure Hoppiness is a lovely beer from first sight to last swallow.“ - Peter Rowe
We have some other gems to offer you as well, new oysters on the menu are Evening Cove and Metcalf Bay. The Ritual menu is full of tasty temptations.
It is our hope that, after sampling this cask ale offering, you might tell us that in hindsight this week’s announcement could have been condensed to a single sentence; “We are excited to offer Alpine Brewing Pure Hoppiness for the first time in our history.”
