COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Mesa- A new school testament to the tradition of brewing beer with grapes. It is a blend of 25% Santa Lucia highland Riesling from Mer Soleil Vineyard and 75% Pilsner from Cismontane. This beer is brewed entirely with Nelson Sauvin hops. Soured with Lactobacillus to enhance the natural grape acidity and fermented with a blend of wine and beer yeast. This process highlights the flavors that beer and wine have in common. The collaboration beer made by longtime friends Charlie Wagner and Evan Weinberg.

TheCrowsNest (76) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - APR 1, 2013
Soapy white foam fades quickly. Clear gold. Peppery and honey aromas - slightly sweet Riesling is definitely there. Light acidity, expected more from the lacto; light lemon; no hops. Nice dryness, low carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beernbourbon (1581) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 17, 2016
Bottle. Vol 3. 20% grenache, 20% chardonnay, 60% pilsner. Aroma is musty and earthy with woodsy citrus notes and some intermittent notes of clean hay. Intriguing aroma. Flavor is full of white wine up front - softly sweet with light buttery chardonnay tones. Light must, some green grape, and some sour apple. May be majority pilsner malt but the flavor is dominated by white wine. I do not love this but I am quite intrigued by the potential. It has all the elegance of a white wine with a beer aroma. Loads of curiosity.

BlackHaddock (6795) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2016
Draft at the brewery tap in Rancho Santa Margarita on 23rd May 2016. The board said it was 40% Wine and 60% Beer, didnt notice the grape variety or base beer. Anyway it poured a very pale, light golden colour and had no head worthy of note. It was winey in its aroma and taste, quite pleasant actually.
