Market Report with Laura Avery

Farmer Alex Weiser and cicerone Thomas Kelley collaborated on El Segundo Brewing Company’s seasonal White Dog IPA. The beer is flavored with Weiser’s green-fleshed melons.

You can taste Melon Collie at the Alex Weiser’s 2014 Feast to Farm Dinner in Tehachapi or grab a pint at the El Segundo Brewing Company’s tap room. The brewery will also be pouring Melon Collie at the LA Brewers Beer Week kickoff on September 20th.
