California Wild Ales, San Diego’s Sour House, announced its fourth annual May the Fourth be With You celebration of all things Star Wars. There will be 12 unique sour ales on tap, including two kombucha blends and two new sour ales, Darth Maul-berry and OB-One, to commemorate Star Wars Day.
Our May the Fourth lineup includes old favorites like May the Force Be With Yuzu, Han SoLoquat, The Mangolorian, ImPEARial Stormtrooper, and Darth Citrus. We are also bringing back one of our most experimental sours…BanAnakin Skywalker. This crowd favorite is made with caramelized bananas, homemade English toffee, and caramel. This beer returns for the first time in three years, and you are not gonna want to miss this one.
“We opened our doors to Ocean Beach exactly one year ago, on May 4th. We are so proud of what we have accomplished in this short timeframe. It’s gonna be an intergalactic throwdown and everyone is invited…Jedi, bounty hunters, clones, rebels, Sith, and droids… all are welcome.” said Bill DeWitt, co-founder of California Wild Ales. “It’s the perfect way to celebrate and offer some really unique and limited wild ales to the neighborhood.”
“It’s always fun to recreate these beers every year for this event. May the Fourth gives us a chance to create something new like Darth Maulberry or resurrect an old flavor like Bananakin Skywalker,” said Zack Brager, co-founder of California Wild Ales.
The entire May 4th lineup of sour beer will only be available at the Ocean Beach tasting room.
