Go: White Labs
Micro: A major supplier of brewer’s yeast, White Labs also operates a unique brewery and tasting room. Sip beers made with identical ingredients — try, for instance, the barleywines — except for the microscopic yeast.
So?: Different yeast strains impart distinct flavors and aromas. California ale yeast gives White Labs’ barleywine notes of citrus zest, strawberries and toffee; London ale yeast reorients this beer toward cherry, caramel and honey flavors.
Know: Tasting room opens daily at noon and closes 6 p.m. Sundays; 8 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays; and 9 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.
