Hey Bartender

By VIRGINIA STILL

Beer may be a thirst quencher for those hot summer days but for craft beer lovers, beer satisfies the taste buds year ‘round. Craft beer has gained popularity over the years, which has prompted new craft breweries to have success throughout the 209, including Five Window Beer Company. This small, independent brewery has been open for a few months and already seems to have a following for their custom brews and their family- and dog-friendly environment. The family chemistry of owners Charlie Lippert and Joseph Ehlers – cousins who consider themselves more like brothers – gives the new brewery in Lodi a relaxing home feel that includes a logo of an old truck with five windows belonging to the great grandfather and the cousins’ two dogs Izzy and Riley riding in the back to tie that family vibe in. Some of the custom brews offered are the New England hazy IPA, the cream ale, watermelon blonde, double IPA, coffee stout, mosaic Citra pale, and the prominent blonde ale that is always on tap. The hazy IPA is made with Simcoe and Citra hops, which has been a very popular brew for customers. Beer lovers can enjoy the assortment of juicy flavors like the ale with the fruity after taste, the creamy ale with a smooth finish or heavier barrel aged darker beers. The brewery has a variety of games for people to enjoy like oversized Jenga, shuffle board, board games and an outdoor beer garden. ■
