Our Lime Seltzer is dry, bubbly and hits with a kiss of real lime. This thing is naturally gluten-free and has just a dab of cane sugar added to it after fermentation. Enjoy as is, or pour over ice. It’s pretty fun with a shot of Mezcal or Gin, made as a Michelada, or maybe even a slice of jalapeño for some heat. With it being the limey blank canvas that it is, you can drink it however you want.
Lavender Lemonade // Sparkling Hard Seltzer
We’ve got some Hard Lemonade for sale, ! And look at that color! That beautiful, natural color comes from the use of lots of lavender that Mitch spent like a million years making, with the biggest batch of lavender tea that I’ve ever seen! He then blended it in at perfection-like levels with our lemonade-style seltzer. Mitch has spent the last 8 months working on this little project, (not like all the time, but here and there) and we’re pretty pumped on the results! 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.
Our version of Kölsch uses German grown barley and hops, and a super clean German lager yeast to make this absolute crusher. To finish it off, we did the unthinkable, and filtered this thing to excellent brightness and smoothness. Funny enough, it was the first beer that we had ever filtered at Green Cheek, and now it's the first beer to get the sixer treatment, with this batch coming in 12oz x 6packs! The result? Brilliantly clear, with a solid head of white foam to match. Lighter in body than our Helles, with a very clean and firm bitterness. The finish is drying and crisp, with drinkability maxed out to new heights. Very proud of this one.
Talkin' To Electricity
A Polyphonic Pale Ale w/ mostly Simcoe, Mosaic Cryo & a splash of Chinook
Our Cheeky brewers at our Costa Mesa spot, Pete and Ian, dreamed this one up all on their own, during a solid hang sesh in the Rave Cave™️. Fermented with a ripe lot of Mosaic Cryo, and then hit at the end of ferment with lots of Simcoe and a dab of Chinook, they really did this one right. The nose is all candied tangerines & douglas fir sprouts, with a delicate mid-palate bitterness that leads to bright flavors of Nonna’s Limoncello and finishes with the crispness of 808 hi-hats.
Pinthouse-Syle IPA Mega Collab w/ Pinthouse & Friends w/Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe & Motueka
A fun project from with some of our bestest pals @pinthousebrewing , @alvaradostreetbrewery , @cellarmakerbrewing , @cloudburstbrew and @highlandparkbrewery , where we take turns teaching each other how to make some of our most well known beers. The texts, emails and calls that go into these beers is a labor of love and such a fun learning lesson. Pinthouse describes their beer best:
"This IPA forgoes traditional bitterness in favor of a rounded juicy finish and a complex olfaction profile of fruit, citrus, pine and floral notes from the Simcoe and Mosaic Lupulin powder, and Citra hops. An incredibly drinkable, dank, and beautifully nuanced example of what can be done when you focus on the quality of the hop." - Joe Mohrfeld.
Citra!!! It's What We Like Here
West Coast IPA w/ 100% Citra
Our hand selected lot of Citra from one of our favorite hop growers, @colemanagriculture in Oregon, is especially wonderful this year. So, here's a simple recipe of Pilsner Malt and Citra hops to showcase it best! We went lighter on the bitterness, doubled up the whirlpool hopping, and then layered in the that all Citra dry hop at the end of fermentation. Flavor profile? Think pineapple spears, mango flesh, and orange flowers.
West Coast IPA w/ Citra Strata & More!
You know your pals over here at GC can't stop noodle'n about all the different ways to hit an IPA. Can't stop. Won't stop. This one is richer and fuller than some of our other West Coasts, with a pleasant dab of hoppy resin in the linger. Flavor profile? Think blueberry muffins, spruce tips and fresh cut strawberries.
The Moment When Our Unrelenting Minds Calm and Leisure Takes Its Rightful Grasp
Collab w/ @theredoesnotexist West Coast Double IPA w/ Mosaic, Strata, & Amarillo
Our pal Max from There Does Not Exist paid us a visit in March, and we brewed up a version of his Psychic Advisor on our kit, but using a different mix of hop varietals. The palate is super clean, brightly resinous, and just bitter enough to invoke more drinking. Flavor profile? Think ruby red grapefruit, orange marmalade, and the devil’s lettuce. BTW, let’s all give a big CONGRATS to Max, cause he became a Dad this week!!!
Unassuming From the Outside

Just Two Things... Citra & El Dorado
DDH Hazy DIPA w/ Citra & El Dorado
Part of our little series of beers highlighting how the combination of two hop varieties can create something special together. We wanted to showcase our special lot of El Dorado from our friends at @cls_famrs, and couple it with our hand selected Citra from @colemanagriculture for a rad little pairing of greatness. Tasting notes? The result is super punchy, with layers of zesty lemon, Kerns Apricot, and pineapple rings.

Come Stride With Me
Ruby Brown Ale // Brewed To Support Cystic Fibrosis Research
We've made this beer for our dear friend Lucy, who lives with Cystic Fibrosis (CF). Our hope is to raise awareness and some funds to hopefully find a cure for this rare condition. Starting today, we';; be selling this on draft at both spots, where $1 of every pint of this beer sold will go to the @cf_foundation via the @cff_oc
Our Ruby Brown Ale is kinda like a cross between an Irish Red Ale and English Brown Ale, where it leans heavier on caramel malt depth, and then goes lighter on the mix of nutty and roasty yumminess that finishes crisp and dry. Medium in body, pint worthy and super fun to drink. So much so, you should have two...you know, for charity!
We Don't Know Until We're There
Foeder Aged & Bottle Conditioned Old School Saison
Brewed in the early Fall of 2020, fermented in our ancient French Oak Foeder, and then bottled in February of 2021, this one gets its fizz and funk from the use of our house culture, and a long conditioning time in the bottle. The bitterness is firm, with a refreshing acidity, and a flavor profile of nectarine skins, orange oil, and bay leaf.
The Taste of the Unknown
Foeder-Aged Farmhouse Ale
Our love for low acid mixed culture beer is something that we're proud to showcase in our little beer program. We continue to learn that patience is a key ingredient in these beers, as just the keg conditioning process took 7 months to complete. Brewed with raw wheat, pilsner malt, some noble hops, and then fermented in our French Oak Foeder in early 2021 at our spot in Orange. The result is super soft on the palate, with the bitterness and acidity both restrained, and the stone fruit and funk being at a wonderfully complex level. Tasting notes? Things like orange flower water, nectarine flesh, Wheaties, and Pinkberry original.
A blend of 2 batches. One brewed in Nov 2020 and the other brewed in January 2021, this was aged in stainless until December 2021, and then canned a couple weeks back. A beer that celebrates some of the good qualities that age and slow oxidation can play on a beer of this strength.
The color is like rich mahogany. The body is thick, with a good, well rounded bitterness to match. The flavor profile is all mission figs, fruit cake, and rum & cola
