Lucybelle from Sante Adairius Rustic Ales is a wonderful brew that is worth the effort to find. I was lucky enough to get a bottle in the mail from a patron who commissioned an oil painting of his wedding day in Monterey Bay, and wanted this beer in the painting. It might be easier to stay at home and drink your generic regular beer, but a trip to the coast is always worth the money, the effort, and the time. Looking west over the Pacific Ocean, a beautiful sunset on a perfect beach. A crisp, delicate, dry ale served in a classy tulip glass making the perfect accompaniment to the departure of the sun. A trip to find Sante Adairius beer is definitely rewarding. With a tasting room at the brewery in Capitola and a great pub in Santa Cruz, the destination is worth the trip, not to mention the delicious ales you’ll taste when you get there! Lucybelle is a great Saison, not that bubblegum sweet beverage some breweries call a Saison. This is a real, crisp, slightly sour, and refreshing version with a lower ABV so you can remember the night, and be ready for some late night fun!
Cheers to the California beaches, and beers like Lucybelle, a real Saison brewed the old fashioned way!
