Lompoc Brewing Celebrates 20th Anniversary with Zwanzig Fest
PORTLAND, Ore. – A long-time Portland craft beer fixture established in 1996, Lompoc Brewing will celebrate its 20th anniversary this month with Zwanzig Fest, a week-long lineup of special events at Lompoc’s five pubs from Dec. 13 to Dec. 16 (Zwanzig means 20 in German).

To commemorate the 20th Anniversary of Lompoc Brewing, the brewers – with the help of a number of local beer writers and past brewers – have brewed Zwanzig, a bitter Märzen ale in a nod to Lompoc’s very first brew, Erst Ale. Pale orange in color, its full, malty body and eight hop additions will make you reminisce tipping back a few pints on the New Old Lompoc patio (7.0% ABV).

Much like most of Lompoc’s beers, this one doesn’t really fit into a true style, so the brewers have dubbed it a bitter Märzen ale. Every day at 4pm during Zwanzig Fest, a different Lompoc pub will tap the beer; everyone who orders a Zwanzig or that day’s featured taster tray will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win a variety of Lompoc swag. Owner Jerry Fechter and head brewer Bryan Keilty will be present at the events to share Lompoc’s history and talk about the good old days.
