El GOURDO PUMPKIN PORTER
COMING OCTOBER 26
El Gourdo is the second brother in our "Three Brothers" Porter series. Using a variant of our El Robusto Porter as a base, we peeled, cut and cubed over 400 pounds of fresh Texas pumpkins and added a seasonal blend of spices to the mix. The mouth-feel is smooth and creamy, the aroma is rich spiced pumpkin and the taste deceptively dessert like.
ABV: 6.2% IBU: 36
Contains fresh pumpkin and spices
Suggested Food Pairings*: honey glazed ham, roasted sweet potato soup, nutmeg crème fraiche, French Onion Soup, braised lamb shanks, gingerbread with cinnamon whip cream, and pumpkin pie of course!
*Food pairings suggested by Chef John Tamez, culinary instructor at The Art Institute of San Antonio.
HOP DONG IPA

TANLINES PALE ALE
This assertively hoppy pale ale has a gentle to medium body and is brewed with plenty Citra hops through and through. As a single-hop beer, we explore the many dimensions of the popular, well sought out Citra hop and exploit its immense depth. Used at just about every phase of the brew to get most out of the Citra hop that we can; bitterness, flavor and aroma combine into a trifecta of citrus character that only the beloved Citra hop can provide. Enjoyable and refreshing on a hot Texas day, get some tanlines of your own, and enjoy ours! Cheers!

EL DESPIERTO COFFEE PORTER
In Early 2015, Busted Sandal Brewing decided to work on a project to develop a coffee porter that was unlike other coffee porters. Something with substance, where the craft of coffee brewing and the craft of beer brewing were perfectly matched into one delicious drink. After some research, we sought out and established a partnership with The Brown Coffee Company, in San Antonio, Texas.
We quickly learned from Founder and “Coffee Hunter” Aaron Blanco that Brown is not just special, it is unique in its market. You see, Aaron sources his coffee beans for his craft roasting by establishing direct relationships with coffee farmers around the world. He travels to farms and stays with farmers, and regularly hosts them in San Antonio. He seeks out the best of the best coffees, understanding the unique environment and character of each coffee variety where it is grown, as well as which processing methods best suit which coffees, all in pursuit of the perfect cup.
