From a time when Palo Alto Brewing Company’s beers were available only at Palo Alto’s Rose and Crown Pub, the brewery has reached a whole level today where people can find them at restaurants and bars throughout the Peninsula as well as grocery stores and specialty beer and liquor stores all over the bay area. Palo Alto has been successful in offering beer lovers a wide variety of brews ranging from their classic Hoppy Ending Pale Ale to the limited release bourbon barrel barley wine Onoskelis.
With an understanding of traditional brewing styles and an eye to the future, Palo Alto Brewing Company creates beers with the uniqueness of a microbrew and a classic aesthetic that stands up with the most well-known beers of the world. You will find a good deal of variety here. Some of the most popular beers include Barley Legal Coconut Porter (and its barrel-aged version), the very West Coast-style Atlas Double IPA, and the newest release Nice Lacing, a Belgian IPA, created by brewmaster Kasim and brewed in Belgium’s De Proef Brouweij. It’s the perfect blend of classic Belgian brewing traditions and West Coast microbrew character.
While all beers of Palo Alto are amazing, the Barley Legal Coconut Porter literally stands out and you gotta try it once! It is a traditional American-style porter with a decidedly untraditional addition of coconut. The addition of just the right amount of coconut gives this porter a velvety smooth mouth feel with just a bit of coconut flavor at the end. A balanced porter, Barley Legal pours nearly pitch black with strong aromas and flavors of roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate and a slight hint of coconut milk. It is so drinkable that it’s barely legal.
Palo Alto Brewing Co also offers some really cool merchandise. They have amazing art works for their individual beers and to mark them they have set cool tees for both men and women on which they have these artworks printed. Available in all sizes and at fair prices these tees can be used for regular wear as well as for souvenirs.
It doesn’t matter what kind of beer you like, and what brew floats your boat, you are certain to find something for yourself at Palo Alto Brewing Co. They choose only the finest of ingredients for their beer which is why every single beer they offer is strong and best!
