Atwater Village brewery offers a new summer beer and it comes with a free concert

June 03, 2013|By John Verive

There's a new local brew that's made for Summer fun: Golden Road Brewing's Cabrillo Kolsch is now available in cans, and the Atwater Village brewery is celebrating with a no-cover, all-ages concert at the Roxy on Tuesday, June 4th.

Kolsch beers are known for being light and crisp with a subtle fruitiness from the cool fermentation. They are a delicate style that is approachable, easy drinking, and perfect to help you cool-off during the warm summer days. Jesse Houck -- the new brewmaster at Golden Road -- is known for his dry, hoppy beers.

"[Cabrillo Kolsch] is a classic with a small, West Coast take on it," he says. "This kolsch is a little bit higher in bitterness than your average kolsch would be out of Germany. It has a more modern hop in there; a German hop, Opal [that] has both a little fruit and spice to it. I really like how it complements the style."

Five acts are scheduled to perform at the Sunset Strip club, and each of the bands playing features people from the Golden Road/Mohawk Bend/Tony's Darts Away family:

- Nikki Muller (

- Feet Feet Feet Parachute (

- Mothers of Gut (

- Illumination Road (

-  The Goodnight (

Doors for the free show open at 8 p.m., and cans of Cabrillo Kolsch will be available for $3 each all night.
