Angel City Brewery Presents Zero Flocs Given
Brewed with a healthy heaping of hops and notes of orange blossom, tropical fruit and pine, Zero Flocs Given is a hazy beer that simply doesn’t give a floc about seasonal blends. Perfect to savor at any time of year, Zero Flocs Given will be released with a limited batch of 16 oz. cans on Friday, available exclusively at Angel City Brewery. The beer will also be on draft at the Brewery’s Public House while supplies last.
