Day 8 Drink: Lost Coast Tangerine Wheat Beer
The Lost Coast Brewery and Café opened in 1990, the result of a dream by Barbara Groom, a pharmacist, and Wendy Pound, a family counselor, to run their own brewpub. Since then, the Eureka, Calif., brewery has expanded, adding a production and bottling site nearby the original brewpub that still operates in a 100-year-old building. You can get their beer in more than 20 states.
Lost Coast Tangerine Wheat Beer is a cloudy orange-gold color with a thin white head. There is a prominent orange zest nose and a solid level of citrus in the flavor profile. A very refreshing 5 percent alcohol by volume beer.
