Noble Ale Works: Our Beer of the Week!
I Love It! IPA , Gold Medal winner!
Winner Winner Winner! Food truck dinner! Congratulations to Noble Ale Works for kicking some beer booty this last week at the World Beer Cup competition, one of the most prestigious suds events in the world. We've known for years now how great the beer at Noble is gracias to their Naughty Sauce, that legendary concoction golden milk stout with Portola coffee—"often imitated but never duplicated," as they love to say.
But Noble head brewer Evan Price and the Giants (Brad Kominek and Matt Frantz) brought home a Gold Medal at the World Beer Cup for their American-style IPA I Love It! (the most-entered category in the contest), a Silver Medal for German-Style Sour Ale Gosebusters, and a Bronze Medal for Imperial IPA Nobility. Even better, Noble Ale Works was named World Beer Cup Champion Brewery and Brewmaster in the Small Brewing Company category. BOOM!
Overall, Orange County breweries did well with Tustin Brewery, Bottle Logic, the Breury, Beachwood, and Taps winning various medals for their craft beer. Outstanding job to all! But for this week, get thee down to Noble's conveniently located spot near Anaheim Stadium, Honda Center, and the Grove. They'll be expanding their current location soon, which means even more will flood in—yet Noble will handle, as they always have. Man, I remember back in the day that they were unknown enough that they'd have live music, so hopefully we can get an occasionally set by Evan & the Giants! Congrats, gents!
