On a personal and bittersweet note, this week marks my last week with Lompoc Brewing, as I'll be leaving to become the Head Brewer at Pints Brewing Company, set to open this spring in Oldtown. My last batch at New Old Lompoc will be an old ale I've dubbed New Olde Ale that we plan to barrel age using the solera method, so that beer from the New Old Lompoc will always be around. Legendary Lompoc head brewer Dave Fleming will be taking over brewing operations at New Old Lompoc and may actually get a chance to brew his famed Honey Jalapeno Lavender Lager. This blog will carry on, with owner Jerry Fechter taking over the reigns. Thanks to all the loyal Lompoc fans out there. Cheers!
