Doug Alberhasky, the “Bier Guy” at John’s Grocery, said John’s Generations White Ale is a perfect beer to start the season.

“It’s an amazing Belgian-style white ale,” he said. “It’s really nice for the spring and summer, spiced with orange peel and coriander. It’s similar to a German-style wheat beer, but instead of lemon zesty coming from the wheat, the orange peel and coriander come through very nicely.”

The brew has earned John’s Grocery national acclaim, winning medals at the Los Angeles International Beer Expo and the Great American Brew Fest in Denver, which is the largest beer event in the country.

“For food pairings, it goes very well with salads, actually, or fish,” Alberhasky said. “Orchard Green [Restaurant] actually steams its mussels in the Belgian White, and that is just an amazing taste combination.”
