Figueroa Mountain Brewing Tap Takeover at Dear Lacy: Our Beer of the Week!

Tap takeovers are a great way to introduce customers to special-edition offerings from breweries they may have yet to visit. Dear Lacy, an al fresco beer garden in Santa Ana, recently hosted a tap takeover by Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. Founded in 2010 in Buellton by father and son Jim and Jaime Dietenhofer, Figueroa Mountain has grown to six tap rooms, none of which are close to OC. So instead of heading up the 101, stop in at Dear Lacy!

Fig Light Lager is an American pale ale that’s flavorful and super-refreshing at 4.5 percent ABV. It has just enough hops and malts to wet the whistle. At 5.2 percent ABV, Lighter Than I Look is a European dark lager with a nutty flavor—think Newcastle, but fresher and hoppier. Winner of 16 awards, Davy Brown Ale (6 percent ABV) has caramel-like characteristics with hints of chocolate; the Cascade hops give this brew a slightly bitter edge but a superior clean finish. Cougar Attack is a triple IPA (at 10 percent ABV) with six hops—including mosaic, El Dorado and citra—that has a smooth finish.
