In Temecula, a man by the name of Joe Winkels ran a local establishment fronted by the Ramona Inn, which was not only a motel, but a boxing ring,brothel and tavern at which one could purchase a number of different varieties of blind pigs. The saloon, which also became known as The Blind Pig, became so successful that it was one of only a few dozen like it across the country to escape the prohibitionist's sledge hammer. Many Hollywood celebrities of that era ventured down to Temecula to sample the legendary products served at 'The Blind Pig'. By the 1950's, the Blind Pig Saloon was no longer operational.
Determined to make history again, proprietors of the Blind Pig Brewing Company, Vinnie Cilurzo and Dave Stovall began producing a line of hop-assertive beers in July of 1994. The brewhouse is a 7 barrel system which allows brewmaster Vinnie Cilurzo to produce only 3000 barrels per year at this time. The brewery's other products include a very hoppy India Pale Ale, an American Stout, and two seasonal beers, an Amber Ale and a Barley Wine. Until just recently, all Blind Pig products were only available in kegs. You are sampling products from the brewery's first ever bottling run.
