Beer of the Week: October 5

White Labs Belgian Golden Ales (alcohol by volume varies)

White Labs Belgian golden ales (ABV varies)


There are books, white papers and seminars that delve into all the specifics on how integral the type of yeast used in a beer recipe influences the final flavor of that brew. Reading may be a fun summer pastime, but I prefer drinking. If you are of the same persuasion and want to taste the conclusions of all that scientific prose for yourself, I recommend a trip to Miramar’s White Labs tasting room (9495 Candida St.). Constructed within the yeast production company’s base of operations, this tap room is one-of-a-kind. Staff brew singular recipes of succinct beer styles then ferment them in separate batches using different strains of White Labs yeast. The difference each version, post-fermentation is huge. Yeast not only makes each beer taste different, but alters its appearance and level of carbonation. It’s something to see—and taste. For first timers, I recommend checking out a lighter beer style like their Belgian Golden Ale (several varieties are available including those fermented with Belgian Trappist Ale Yeast, Antwerp and Saison Ale Yeast) in order to pick up on all the subtle differences.

White Labs’ tasting room truly is unrivaled. There is no place in the world offering such an experience, providing even further evidence as to San Diego’s reputation as America’s Finest City. Stop by during San Diego Beer Week when they put on a quartet of White House beers and invite guests to vote for their favorite. The winner of that competition will be announced on Election Night.
