Adam Carolla Just Launched A New Beer With A South Bay Brewery
Comedian and host Adam Carolla just teamed up with King Harbor Brewery to release a hoppy new IPA.
Whether you enjoyed his antics on Loveline or The Man Show back in the day, or tuned in more recently for his documentary about Paul Newman's racing career, Adam Carolla is hoping fans—and craft beer drinkers in general—will tune in to his foray into the brewing world. Carolla recently partnered with the Redondo Beach-based King Harbor to create Endless Rant IPA, a classic West Coast-style brew.
As it turns out, this isn't Carolla's first boozy venture as a few years back he launched Mangria, a sangria heavy on alcohol that's apparently designed for dudes. According to LA Magazine, Carolla was approached by the King Harbor team at a Mangria event in Manhattan Beach:
'Let's make you a beer.' And I said, 'Yeah, let's do some beers.' And they gave us some growlers for the road. I'm riding shotgun so I had a hit off the growler and next thing you know we just started getting in the beer business.
Far from a brewer himself, Carolla says that he worked with King Harbor to narrow down the flavor profile of his his first beer with his company Carolla Drinks based on some his favorite beers, including popular San Diego brews Saint Archer IPA and Pizza Port's Swami's IPA. According to Inside The Cellar, where the beer can be bought online, the brew is a "balance of the classic West Coast IPA citrus and pine character with the new school tropical fruit profile hops supported by a solid malt backbone and a clean hoppy finish."
Endless Rant IPA is available at the King Harbor Tasting Room (2907 182nd St, Redondo Beach), on tap and in 22 oz. bottles, and bottles can be found online and at several retail spots around Southern California. And if you're feeling super beer-nerdy, you can watch the first bottling of it here:
