21st Amendment El Camino (Un) Real, a three way collaboration with Firestone Walker and Stone Brewing will soon return.
The last time the world saw this collaboration was in 2011, when Stone Brewing released 12 ounce bottles of the unique beer. El Camino (Un) Real is a dark ale, brewed with fennel seeds, chia seeds, peppercorns and figs.
The name plays a massive importance in this beer. El Camino Real is a 600 mile stretch of road in California that connects 21 Spanish Missions. Missionaries and Native Americans grew crops like chia and fennel along the stretch. 21st Amendment El Camino (Un) Real brings three California breweries together in one can, plus a little history to boot.
Offering a glimpse into what many feel is the “real” California, the El Camino Real wends through the state’s coastline, mountains, fertile farming valleys, and traffic-heavy urban and suburban areas. And of course, you’ll also find the 21 California Missions, reminders of Father Junípero Serra’s and the Spanish missionaries’ attempts to convert the indigenous California residents to Catholicism.
21st Amendment El Camino (Un) Real is a 12 ounce can and draft release. Cans debuted at the brewery’s taproom the week of October 17th. National distribution to follow.
