Staff Bottle Pick: August

To read more about what our staff pick bottles are all about, head here.

For August we decided to let our newest face in the team, beer-slinging: Gobany Depaz; pick a beer for you.

Noble Ale Works: The Good Ship ESB. According to Noble, “malts are the backbone for this pub ale and add a clean toastiness that marries perfectly with American hops; delivering a beer that drinks on the drier side of balanced”.

Gobany likes this beer because he says, “ it is freaking delicious and the guys who make it are also super cool”.

Bottles are available in the taproom now so stop by soon and take some home before they’re all gone!

Meet the Team: Gobany Depaz

We realize that many of you are awesome supporters of our brewery and most likely know everyone in our very small staff. BUT, for those of you that maybe haven’t seen all the faces here, and even for those of you who do…. we want to introduce you to each person. Maybe find out a few things you never knew and a bit more about what they enjoy outside of the brewing world.

So to continue the series we are going to tell you about the newest guy behind the bar and one of Eagle Rock’s newest members: Gobany Depaz.

Doyer Game!

Working at Eagle Rock Brewery is pretty much the jam. I mean we make beer here. And then on top of that every now and then we take these amazing field trips. Sometimes it’s to our brewery friends’ places to take a tour and drink good brews, sometimes to fun restaurants to eat amazing new foods or two weeks ago…… to scream and cheer for the DODGERS!

Oh and in case you haven’t heard…. we won this little award; BEST IN SHOW at the International Beer Festival for Equinox (our Sour Blonde Ale). We got this pretty rad little fermenter trophy (that actually functions) filled with BEER! So we emptied it (into our mouths of course) and then took the pretty thing to Dodger Stadium with 170 of our closest friends to see the game and show it off.

We’re pretty proud of the beers we brew and the amazing city we live in. Thanks for your continued support LA and hope to see you in the taproom for  a pint soon!

And special thanks to the Dodgers for beating the Giants!
