Brewed by Lompoc Brewing
8 Malty Nights is a rich, dark ale made with chocolate malts and flaked rye. The Chocolate Rye was brewed by Lompoc brewer Sam Orlansky, who is Jewish and grew up in San Diego with childhood friend Bradley Greenstein. Sam became a brewer; Bradley became a Rabbi with the Congregation Neveh Shalom in Portland. Rabbi Greenstein was present at the brewery November 10 to bless the mash and join the brewers in a toast with Manischewitz.
