A Hard Seltzer w/ Lavender & Lemon
We’ve got some Hard Lemonade for sale! And look at that color! That beautiful, natural color comes from the use of an insane amount of lavender pods that we use to brew a ginormous, fresh batch of lavender tea, that then gets blended with our lemonade-style seltzer. It drinks pretty balanced, with the acidity and sweetness hitting at just the right level, and then a soft tannic hit of dryness from the lavender. Enjoy straight out of the can, or pour over ice. Also legit with a dram of Old Tom Gin.
A Gin & Tonic-Style Hard Seltzer
The Winter iteration of this rotating seasonal sipper leans in a more traditional direction for the drink’s inspiration, while still keeping it interesting. After a few trials, fresh-picked Spruce Tips quickly became what we wanted to center our focus on for this batch. With juniper and quinine still being part of the mix, the Spruce Tips brought in rich flavors of honeydew and cucumber, that pair suuuuper well with the citrus and evergreen character from the juniper. On the palate, it delivers a lovely balance of sweetness, acidity, booze, and bitterness to hit that drinking experience just right. Served over ice with a lil' triangle of Ruby Red grapefruit. Draft only.
An American Light Lager
This may not be the buddy you can rely on to scare away all the seagulls from your snacks, but it's just a beer...what did you expect? It's an American Light Lager through and through, with all the drinkability you hoped it would have. Best served ice cold with some tasty waves.
It's A Lime Lager
A Light Lager w/ Lime
If you’re looking for an easy drinking lager with a bunch of lime in it, then you’ve come to the right place! A light in color, light in body lager, that has lots of yummo fresh lime zestiness on each sniff, and each sip, with a refreshing limey acidity in the finish. Just an absolute crusher!
A German-Style Hefeweizen
This Bavarian-style Wheat Beer uses all German ingredients, except for the water, and is kept unfined and unfiltered. The yummo flavorful yeast strain that we use during fermentation creates insane amounts of banana smoothie vibes to this one, and really makes this one go ahhhhhhhh!
Work Amongst Yourselves
It's A Half Dark Czech-Style Lager
Radiantly clear and polished copper in color, this Amber Lager drinks as good as it looks! With a floral burst of Saaz coming from its ever-so-lightly roasted marshmallow-colored head that refuses to leave, this Czech inspired lager leads into a lush body of malty goodness. Notes of fresh baked crackers and toasted rye bread take center stage with some sweet toffee, that turns into firm bitterness, with an incredibly clean and dry finish. Papa approved??
Throwing the Hand
An Antwerpen-Style Pale Ale w/ Saaz
The story of a giant named Antigoon that taxed incoming ships entering the port of Antwerp was new to me. If one couldn’t pay the giant, he’d cut off one of their hands and throw it in the water. One day some roman soldier Pally™ named Bravo came along, defeated the giant, severed his hand, and threw it in the Scheldt river. This is where the the name of the city comes from. The phrase Throwing The Hand, which in Dutch is “Hand Werpen”, eventually became Antwerpen (aka Antwerp). Pretty neat.
On our visit to Antwerp in November, our good good pal Matt introduced us to a beer called Bolleke. Made by the Dekoninck brewery, it’s considered by some to be THE beer of Antwerp. That beer mesmerized Brian and I during our visit more than any other. So much so that we would end every night at the same bar, drinking the same beer out of a bowl shaped glass. Just so special.
Pretty different than what we’re used to for a Pale Ale here in So Cal, but that’s one of the reasons why we are excited to show it off! Amber in color, with a lovely maltiness that carries through from sniff to sip, and a bitterness that’s firm to help balance out that mid-palate sweetness. Tasting notes? Think caramel sauce, toasted country bread, and high levels of wanderlust.
Retaking the Pulse
A West Coast Pale Ale w/ Mosaic & Rakau
I love an IPA just as much as the next Pally, but at this slightly lower abv for Pale Ale, and the way we built the body and bitterness up on this one, I think you’ll agree that you could do without an IPA for a drinking session!!! Tasting notes? Hits with an array of yummo fruit and fresh cannabis, with a crazy rainbow sherbet vibe that takes it to another level of legit.
Riwaka Pils?! In This Economy!?
It’s A Hoppy Pils w/ 100% Riwaka Hops
Ahhhhh….Riwaka! What an absolutely jaw dropping hop. So rich in zesty aromatics and tropical fruit! But holy cow is it expensive! BTW. It’s actually the most expensive hop we’ve ever purchased!… (don’t tell Brian ? ha ha!). The price of the hop gets inflated from the difficulty that farmers have with growing it, but their efforts are not wasted, as is this hop is unlike any other. When it’s good, it’s GOOD! So here’s an example of this hop highlighted big and bold in a West Coast Pils.
Collab w/ Other Half // A DDH West Coast IPA w/ Motueka, Citra, & Simcoe
To celebrate Other Half’s 10 year anniversary, (congrats!!!) we’ve brought back one of our favorite collabs with them, that uses Sam's holy trinity of hops (Motueka, Citra & Simcoe). The result is beautifully clear, with a firm bitterness and a moderate level of sticky resin in the finish. Flavor profile? Think of yuzu zest, clementine oranges, and kiwi.
Pet the Tiger '24
A California IPA w/ Mosaic & HBC 1019
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! We don't mean to cause a panic, but this tiger is on the loose! He’s got a pretty good bite and reeks of the best hops around, but don’t worry, he can be tamed...like, super easily. All it takes is a little pet-pet. HBC 1019 and Mosaic take center stage with this clear and bitter IPA, where we’re using a brand new hop for us, HBC 1019! Dry, with a full bitterness that isn’t harsh, and hits with hoppy layers of fresh spun cotton candy, peach skin, and blueberry muffins.
Don't Pet the Tiger '24
A California Triple IPA w/ Mosaic & Nelson
Woah! Slow down there friendo! This tough tiger has a bit of a bite! Now… we’re not saying that you can’t say hello. Just be sure to take it slow & make no sudden movements. Don’t say we didn’t warn ya! It’s the Super Imperial version of Pet The Tiger, with Mosaic taking center stage, and sprinkles of Nelson, HBC 586, and Citra, in this clear and bitter, humungous IPA. Full-bodied, with plenty of clean bitterness, some sticky hop resin, and a flavor/aroma explosion of: cannabis gummies, strawberry cake, and orange juice.
Fill In the Blank
A Hazy IPA w/ Mosaic & Simcoe
Holy Moly! We’re so in love with this one! Brewed with pilsner malt and a mound of oats, we let the Mosaic do the heavy lifting right into your nostrils, with some Simcoe sprinkled in for good measure, but it’s really all about that Mosaic! So much big, punchy flavor/aroma of mandarin, pineapple, mango, and _______ (Fill in the Blank).
Float Like Leaves
A Hazy IPA w/ Simcoe, Motueka & Southern Cross
Our newest Hazy IPA is packed FULL of a mix of hops from Oregon, Washington, and Motueka, NZ. The result is chock full of bright lovely fruit character reminiscent of fresh mango, kiwi, orange marmalade, and grapefruit juice. So yummooooo!!!
A Coconut Milkshake IPA w/ Citra, Milk Sugar & Coconut Shreds
Brewed with lots and lots of milk sugar to create a creamy, full bodied beer, hopped like crazy with Citra hops and then soaked on toasted coconut shreds, it's a Coconut Milkshake IPA!
Shhhhhh...This Is Ryan's Award Winning Brown Ale
An English-Style Brown Ale
Our 2023 Gold Medal winning brown ale is nothing new, as it's a style that's been around for ages, but we get really excited about the classics too! The focus of this beer is all in the blend of toasted and caramelized malted barleys from our pals across the pond @simpsonsmalt. Lightly hopped, just enough to create balance, and smooooooth. Flavor notes? Think caramel sauce, toasty bread, and malty tea.
Collab w/ Siren // A Siren-Inspired Stout w/ Cacoa Nibs, Amburana Wood & Candied Pecans
When our Pallys™ Darron & Sean from Siren came to town, we took those sweet sweet Brits to the best dive bar in town! As Country Music was sang, and whiskey was gulped, we put together our list of what ingredients would be added to this Siren-style Imperial Stout that we had brewed earlier that day. A couple months later, here we are! We didn’t use any extracts, but instead lovingly soaked each real ingredient into this one until just right (we even roasted every single pecan ourselves)! The result proudly shows each ingredient listed from sniff to sip, with the pecan aromatics coming together with the spice from the Amburana wood in the aromatics. The palate is rich and chocolatey, without being syrupy.
Phantasm In Berlin
A Berliner-Style Weisse w/ NZ Sauv Blanc Skins
Hello old friend! That old friend being this Berliner Weisse that we’ve been playing around with since day one of our lil brewery. For this rendition of this classic German-style sour wheat beer, we’ve used a crazy level of Jos’s super famous @phantasm.nz in it! The result is a rad little NZ Sauv Blanc-style session beer that hits with crazy levels of tropical fruit. Think passion fruit, fresh kiwi, and pineapple spears.
Strictly For Science
A Smoothie-Style Sour Ale w/ Peach, Pineapple, Mango, Raspberry, & Coconut Cream
Grab a cold can of this one, and shake it to the beat of that one song that goes "mmmmh hmmm mmmmmmmmh hmmm SCIENCE!" and then pour it in some ornate beaker or something. Keep dancing. At some point start drinking it, strictly for science, to ensure this mix of 51% beer and 49% fruit hits the mood just right. We went heaviest on peaches, followed by mangoes, raspberries, and then finished with some coconut cream to add that mouthfeel we love on these. Keep cold and drink now.
