TORRANCE, California – Smog City Brewing Co. partnered with The Bay Foundation (TBF) for the second year in a row to brew a beer supporting TBFs work restoring and protecting kelp forests in Southern California. Forgotten Forest hazy IPA releases on Friday, October 28 to raise funds for TBFs’ efforts to restore and enhance Santa Monica Bay through actions and partnerships that improve water quality, conserve and rehabilitate natural resources, and protect the Bay’s benefits and values.
Part of Smog City’s 1% for the Planet Community Impact series of beers, Forgotten Forest hazy IPA is brewed using Simcoe, Citra, and Sabro hops for fruit salad aromatics of mango, grapefruit, and pineapple. At 6% ABV, Forgotten Forest is a well-rounded hazy IPA that goes down easy. “You smile a bit bigger while enjoying this beer, knowing you’re helping The Bay Foundation fill our coast with life through the sale of Forgotten Forest 4-packs. Thanks, Smog City for bringing our forest into your brewery and for caring for our coast!”, said Tom Ford, CEO of TBF.
To celebrate the release of Forgotten Forest Hazy IPA, Smog City & TBF are throwing a party on Saturday, 10/29 from 12pm – 6pm (taproom will remain open until 10pm) at the Torrance Brewery & Taproom. Tons of Fresh Forgotten Forest IPA, live music, great food, a Halloween costume contest, a curated beer & chocolate flight featuring local chocolatier Marsatta Chocolates, yard games, and more are on tap for Saturday. “We love collaborating with our nonprofit partners for the Community Impact Series.”, said Laurie Porter, co-owner of Smog City Brewing Co. “It gives us a chance to express a big part of what we stand for as a company through what we do best- making great beer. TBF is always so fun to work with & we love giving them a platform to get their message out through beers like Forgotten Forest hazy IPA.”
Forgotten Forest hazy IPA is available in 4-pack cans and on draft starting October 28 at all four of the Smog City Brewing Co. taprooms, as well as online for and shipping to anywhere in the state of California and at select retailers around SoCal.
