Tap Handle #44: Lost Coast - Great White

My dad just returned from California with a gift from the Lost Coast Brewery. It was a different tap than this one, so that story will wait for another time. By coincidence, we are up to a Lost Coast tap, Great White. The artist has a very distinctive art style, so there are lots of great details on this tap.

Lost Coast Brewery began brewing in 1990 in Eureka, California. Barbara Groom and Wendy Pound visited pubs in England and Wales with dreams of starting their own brewery. They bought the historic Pythian Castle as their location, which was built in 1892 by the Royal Order of the Knights of Pythias.  Business grew steadily, and by 2009 Lost Coast produced over 50,000 barrels, making it the 33rd largest brewery in the U.S. They distribute ales to 22 different states, Puerto Rico, and three Canadian provinces. Of the eight beers they brew, many have won awards at the state level, and a few have won awards nationally. Great White is a Belgian-style beer with a hint of citrus, coriander, and other herbs. Weighted average on is 3.0 out of 5.

The Great White tap won first place in the 1998 American Brewers Tap Handle Contest.
