Venice Duck Brewery

There's a new beer in my town, and its made by Venice Duck Brewery.  Yesterday John Henry Binder and Christian Warren kicked off the "Dogtown Duck" IPA yesterday at the famous James Beach in Venice California.  These guys are two bartenders who worked together at James Beach and loved beer, and decided to brew their own.

I happen to love IPA's and Dogtown Duck is every IPA lover's dream.  Citrusy, floral, the perfect amount of bitter that is easy to drink.   Finally, a local beer, by two local guys that really represents the true essence of Venice.  

There's a lot to be said about the gentrifying times of Venice, some good, some bad, and I'm glad to see old school locals are moving forward, yet keeping the true essence of what Venice means so close to their hearts.  

With four more brews on the way, Venice Duck an agave Blonde ale, German malts and a touch of agave.  Stoner Duck an American Brown ale with hints of chocolate, hops, and a mild tea aroma from hemp seeds.   Lone Duck a Belgian Abbey, and Lucky Duck a Belgian White Ale.  There's a lot to look forward to and watching this company grow.

The party was a huge success, with family and friends to celebrate with, and delicious food prepared by James Beach Chef, Jorge Valines.  My personal favorite was the IPA braised duck sausage in a puff pastry.
