A delicate lagerbier like Helles is a favorite of ours to drink anytime because of its infinite drinkability and nuanced flavor. It’s a passion project for us. Brewed 8 weeks ago, we spend a lot of time to make these beers, with this batch lagering for 6 weeks until we thought it was just right! Using all German ingredients, except for the water, each batch is a baby step towards recreating what we’ve experienced in Munich.
After drinking this dry hopped lager style from a few Italian breweries at the Pils & Love Fest earlier this year, we knew it was only a matter of time until we made our own version of it. Brewed with Italian Pilsner malt and some of our favorite German hops; Saphir, Hallertau Blanc and Huell Melon, the result is medium-bodied with a soft malt presence and enough bitterness to create that snappiness that you hope for in a Pils. The aromatics and flavor are full of herbal notes, with a sage and honey character that carries into the dry finish.
Tim & Jim
Classic American Light Ale
A beer as cold and refreshing as it is familiar and comforting. The kind of beer that belongs in your hand as you lean back in a lawn chair, sporting your favorite old, stained T-shirt, and hopefully a pair of retro short shorts and sunglasses. This is the beer you sip while you watch your kid mow your lawn. This... is Tim and Jim, a Classic American Light Ale.
Sooner Or Later
An easy-drinking Blonde Ale. Light bodied, with a kiss of malt flavor, mosaic hops and a pleasantly crisp finish. Fermented with an estery English Ale yeast which provides a wonderful peachiness too!
Imperial Light Beer
Brewed with corn and pilsner malt, this lighter bodied, easy drinker gets hit with a small dry hop of Citra, but still maintains the drinkability that you’d look for in a steady crusher like this.
We switched out the coffee on this batch to an Ethiopian coffee, and then made it even more full bodied and chocolatier than the first batch. Pumped!
Falling For Autumn
Nitro Oatmeal Stout
This oatmeal stout is served on nitro, and gets it's scary good richness from all of that Simpsons Caramel and Chocolate malt. Vegan friendly. No lactose in this one!
SoMa-style Hazy Pale Ale
The first (intentionally) Hazy IPA’s that I ever sank pints of were being made by friend Tim Sciascia of @cellarmakerbrewing out of San Francisco. His brewing style is all about showcasing that big hop aroma and flavor but with very low bitterness. The body on his beers tend to be on the lighter side to keep crushability at a maximum while the aromatics pop so hard with hops, it’s impossible to stop sniffing. This isn’t a collaboration beer, but instead it’s us totally inspired by one of the front runners of hazy hoppy beers.
West Coast IPA Is Dead
West Coast IPA
A clear IPA brewed without crystal malt to keep the color light and malt flavor low in order for all the Simcoe and Citra hops to shine through like crazy. Clean. Bitter. Hoppy.
A Hazy IPA bursting with flavorful layers of candied orange zest and passion fruit, and perfect for enjoying with a group of your closest pals. We used Mosaic, El Dorado, and Ekuanot hops to start this party, and leave the rest to you!
We start by zesting grapefruits, then muddle with sugar (to extract the flavorful oils) and finish it off by mixing it with our Berlin and fresh grapefruit juice. It’s a light, refreshing, and fun, crushable quencher!
Ginger Ale Shandy
A fun take on a old favorite. Evan juiced 50 pounds of fresh ginger for this one, and mixed that together with fresh lime wheels, and pure cane sugar before finishing it with our thirst-quenching berliner weisse. A touch tart with a bite of ginger.
Guava In Berlin
Berliner Weisse-style w/Guava
Juicy, tart, and insanely crushable. A sour German-style wheat beer fruited with a near ton of puréed Guava during fermentation. Unmalted wheat, pilsner malt, and a mixed culture fermentation are used to create this unpasteurized sour fruit beer.
Saison For Aubrey*
Unmalted wheat and pilsner malt make up the base with aged hops in the kettle. Fermented in stainless with a mixed culture saison yeast and then keg conditioned for 4 months. The result has lots of estery goodness, with nutmeg and ginger leading the charge. Light bodied, with a soft, lingering bitterness and a touch of acidity.
Belgian For Pale*
BC Hoppy Pale Ale w/Brett
Bottled back in November 2017, this beer gets its depth of flavor from the slow evolution of brettanomyces yeast over the course of months of warm aging. We can taste flavorful layers of leather and pipe tobacco, that play nicely with an orange marmalade kind of character. Highly carbonated, medium bodied with a dry, lingering finish.
