Hangtown Brewing Company - Placerville Stout
- ABV: 4.9%
- Serving Temperature: 45-50° F
Hangtown's first brewery was in fact, first and foremost, not a brewery at all but instead a flavored soda water-making operation. Pressure from thirsty miners forced the proprietors to modify their product line to include several different ales. A homebrewer since 1989, founder David Coody opened the Hangtown brewery in a 500 square foot building in 1992. Tremendous popularity quickly forced the brewery to relocate in 1994 to its current location allowing a 15 barrel brewhouse and two 80 barrel fermenters. In addition to the three most recently introduced products that we are featuring in this month's shipment, Hangtown also produces Placerville Pale Ale and Placerville Tangerine Ale. The brewery is open seven days a week and tours can be made available on request.
