Hard Seltzer w/ Tangerine
Our Tangerine Seltzer is dry, super bubbly and hits with a kiss of tangerine. Super fresh tangerine character, as if you’re peeling the tangerine yourself, but without any added sweetness. Drink over ice, or straight outta the can, or even use instead of soda water in some of your favorite cocktails. This one totally works in a Tom Collins or a gin & soda.
Gin & Tonic-Style Seltzer
A Gin & Tonic-style Hard Seltzer!
A fun project that we’ve been working on in the background for the last few months. The goal was to make a Hard Seltzer that tastes just like a real Gin & Tonic. After so many side by side tests, tweaks, and endless drinking, we’re proud to present to you…Tenacious Tonic! Modeled after a stronger, contemporary-style G&T, we brought together juniper, quinine, lemon, lime, plenty of rose water, some cane sugar, and of course a few secrets (shhhhhhhhh), to deliver the right balance of sweetness, acidity, and bitterness to hit that drinking experience just right. We lovingly packaged it in 12oz cans, for you and your favorite pally to split. That’s right! There are 2 servings per can! Oh, and unless you normally drink a G&T neat, we highly recommend pouring it over ice! Now serving on draft at both spots
Uni // Collab w/ Burial Beer Co.
American Light Lager
Light Lager, collab w/ Burial Beer, 4.0% ABV. Our pal Doug from Burial (dope brewert in North Carolina) makes an American Light Lager that we love called Innertube. inspired by that legit craft lager, we tweaked it a bitfrom there using 2/3 Pilsner malt and 1/3 rice, just a dab of hops for balance, and boom! Uni was born! It's fun drinking a fresh version of this style of beer that lacks the oxidation, skunkiness, or green apple flavor that makes up a lot of macro lagers.
2 Places At Once // Collab w/ Urban Roots
10° Czech - Style Lager
10° Czech Pils, Collab w/ Urban Roots Beer 3.9% ABV
For this one, we got together with our lager loving pally, Peter Hoey! Dude is a wealth of brewing knowledge, a Nor Cal Brewing legend, the recent winner of Brewery Of The Year at the California Craft Brewers Cup, and on top of all of that, he's a good friend. We geeked out over lager while he was in town, and brewed his version of a Czech Pils, which is one of the staples at his brewery in Sacramento. Pale in color, with brilliant clarity from filtration, a frothy head of foam, and a good snap of bitterness from all the Saaz hops used. Just lovely.
Using all German ingredients, except for the water, each batch is another baby step towards recreating what we’ve experienced in Munich. Straw in color, with a subtly and nuance that is hard to describe and instead needs to be experienced! Notes of fresh baked bread, herbal tea, and hay create a beer style that is praised for it’s liter-worthy drinkability.
Smooth Is Fast
West Coast Pilsner w/ Nelson & Citra
West Coast Pilsner w/ Nelson & Citra 5.6% ABV
Using Nelson during active fermentation, and then sprinkling in our Citra after, this joint hits with flavors/aromatic profile of cucumber spa water, kumquat, cherry blossoms, and watermelon.
And Just Like That, As Mysteriously As He Had Arrived, He Was Gone
Hoppy Pale Ale w/ Mosaic, El Dorado, Galaxy & Idaho 7 // Collab w/ Mitch Mcduff
Hoppy Pale Ale w/ Mosaic, El Dorado, Galaxy, & Idaho 7, 5.6% ABV
Designed and brewed by our Head Brewer, Mitch, this beer is a celebration of him and the hard work he has put in here at Green Cheek the last 3.25 years. Mitch started with us as a keg washer in August of 2018, and quickly moved his way up the ranks in our little brewery. Dude is insanely intelligent, passionate, funny, and just the best guy ever. Today is his last day with us, and there's no doubt about it, we're gonna miss him! What about the beer? Well, it's a lean pale ale, that's light on the bitterness and heavy on the hoppy aromatics and flavor. The taste? Mitch says "lemon zest, fruity pebbles, lychee, and cantaloupe."
California IPA w/ Idaho 7
We all know, that a clear and bitter IPA is about as boring as it gets these days, so maybe just keep scrolling. But, if you’re in for a yawn or two, let me tell you about it! It’s made with 100% Pilsner malt, and uses only Idaho 7 hops (from the homies at Crosby Hops) in the brew and in the big, hefty dry hop. The hop flavor/aroma may seem blah, but it pops with huge fresh pineapple, citrusy pine needles and even has a dab of coconut to finish it out.
Just As Nature Intended
California IPA w/ 100% Strata
California IPA w/ 100% Strata! 7.2% ABV Happily showing off the deliciousness that is Strata! Using only Pilsner malt, Strata, and neutral ale yeast. It's clear and bitter, light in color, and shows off aromas of fresh passionfruit, pineapple rings, and lemon oil
Spinning the Elaborate Yarn
West Coast IPA w/ Strata & Amarillo
We spent some time spinning the elaborate yarn, over our approach to West Coast IPA, and made some changes to how we usually hit it. The result is a bit more resinous, perceivably hoppier, with a fresh hoppy expression of honeydew, strawberry, and some fun herbaceous forest vibes that linger in the finish.
Hazy IPA w/ Citra & Idaho 7
Hazy IPA w/ Citra & Idaho 7, 6.8% ABV. We convinced ourselves that Idaho 7 could potentially play nicely with Citra if used at the right amount, and added at the right time. Well, let me tell you, we were right! The Idaho 7 adds a rich layer of hoppiness that stays underneath all the Citra, and doesn't overwhelm all the mango and orange soda vibes we are looking for.
Everything Is Possible
Hazy IPA w/ Citra & Idaho 7
Hazy IPA that goes heavy on the Citra & light on the Idaho 7, 7.0% abv
Anyway, as we continue to explore process and ingredients more and more, we feel that same “everything is possible” feeling when it comes to these beers. Easily our best work within the hazy IPA style, this beer explodes with hops in such a fun, fruit-forward way, that gets us even more excited to keep exploring. Old fashioned oats, and raw winter white wheat hold it all together, with our hand selected Citra taking center stage, and a bit of Idaho 7 sprinkled in for a lovely richness that helps add depth. Flavor profile? Ripe Mango with sticky rice, magnolia blossoms, Orange Tang, and rainbow snow cones.
DDH The Other Brian
DDH Hazy IPA W/CITRA
Our favorite hazy double returns and gets double dry hopped with lots of Citra! The hops take center stage and hit with flavors of ripe mango, fresh squeezed orange juice, and pineapple candy too.
Just One Thing... Galaxy 2.0
DDH Hazy DIPA w/ Galaxy
DDH Hazy DIPA w/ 100% Galaxy
It’s our little series of beers highlighting the extremes of one single hop variety, double dry hopped to overload the senses with all of what it is. Galaxy is a hop variety that comes to us all the way from Australia. One of the harder hops for us to get our mitts on, the aromatics and flavor hit with fresh kiwi, prickly pear, elderflower, white pear and jackfruit.
Collab w/ Alvarado street // A Thiol DDH DIPA w/ Phantasm & Riwawka...
Thiology 101 // Collab w/ @alvaradostreetbeer - A Thiol Driven DDH DIPA w/ Phantasm, Nelson Sauvin, Riwawka, & Citra, 8.8% abv
We were the students for this collab, with our pal JC from Alvarado Street teaching the class, Thiology 101. Thiols are super aromatic compounds found in hops, and in this case, NZ Sauv Blanc skins too. Thiols are insane, as we are so sensitive to the super small amount that exists in beer, that they need to be measured in the parts per trillion! As Professor JC taught us, by using a specific yeast strain, it'll free up more of the fruity Thiols from the hops/grape skinslift them to right to our noses! So anyway, here's this insanely juicy and tropical release that his with flavors/aromas of: Cotton Candy grapes, cherry Jolly Rancher, Pineapple Aqua Fresca, and lots of NZ Sauv Blanc.
The Earth Is Round (But Everything On It Is Flat)
DDH Hazy TIPA w/ Galaxy & Citra
Back in 1964 scientists working in a remote, tropical, jungle laboratory in Papua New Guinea, made a shocking discovery. Sure, everyone knew that the Greek geographer, Eratosthenes first calculated the circumference of the Earth back in the day, but could the world handle this new discovery? How could the scientists ever explain such reality altering truth?
Anyways, this hazy triple features both Galaxy and Citra hops and brings lots of lychee, sweet lime, and a fun pineapple banana smoothie type thing.
