LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT OUR BEERS...

BEERS BY US!

Water Skies V1.0

Our Very Own Hop Water w/ Citra & Mosaic

We've been in the background for the last few months working on a hop water that we actually wanted to drink. Finally, after waaaaaay too much R&D, we've got one ready for ya! Ours is super bubbly, with a yummo blend of Citra & Mosaic that give it a flavor profile of mango sorbet, handfuls of skittles, and the devil's lettuce. Whether you're not drinking at the moment, or just want to extend your visit, we've got you!

0.0% ABV

Lavender Lemonade

Sparkling 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.

5.0% ABV

Spring G&T

Gin & Tonic-Style Hard Seltzer

Our Spring iteration of this rotating seasonal sipper is a strong, more contemporary-style G&T, that focuses on a range of different citrus types to get us into more mmmmmhs and ahhhhhhs. Fresh zests of Lemon, Grapefruit, Mandarin, and Sweet Lime were used, along with some dried citrus, damiana leaf, ginger root and a dab of spruce tips. We had a fun in-house competition of who could make the best version, and one of our brewers out of Orange (Josh!) won this round with his lemon forward G&T that shows through with just the right amount of spice. Served over ice with some fresh expressed lemon peel.

12.0% ABV

Michelada

For Those Who Know

Oh...you came here looking for a description? So sorry Pally...you've just gotta know, ya know? Kidding! Our Michi Mix is crafted from scratch in house and served with one of our yummo light beers over ice & rimmed with secret blend of chili salt.

3.9% ABV

A Little Too Sessionable, Even For Me

A New School 10° Czech-style Pale Lager W/ Michigan Saaz, and a dab of Luminosa, & Nectaron

We brewed up a super traditional Czech-style Lager at the Orange brewery using floor-malted barley straight from the source, & then made a couple changes on the hopping than what would considered to be traditional. We went heavy on the Saaz that was grown in Michigan, & then finished this one with a little bit of Luminosa (grown by our pals @‌indiehops ) & Nectaron (from our pals @‌machops ) in the whirlpool & the super light dry hop. The result is full of wonderful, well integrated bitterness from all of that Saaz, & even has all the yummy herbal undertones from it too. There’s a delicate orange zestiness that shows through on the palate from those new school hops, but since they weren’t heavy handed, it all plays super nice together.

4.0% ABV

Basically Local

Mexican-Style Lager

If you’re looking for an easy drinking lager made out of our brewery in O’side, you’ve come to the right place! Made with pilsner malt and just the right amount of corn, this one goes light on the hops to showcase it all just perfectly. Feel free to add a lime if you’re feeling it!!!

4.5% ABV

The Mighty Rhine

German-Style Amber

Here’s a beer style originating out of Dusseldorf, Germany that we all refer to as Altbier. Fermented with the same yeast used for Kölsch, this is a sort of hybrid style of beer that gets fermented warmer than a lager, but then cold stored (lagered) until just right. Filtered to beautiful clarity, this one is dark amber in color, with lots of yummy dark fruit and toasted malt characteristics and a slight drying roast finish.

4.9% ABV

German For Light

Munich-Style Helles Lager

Listen up Lager Pallys™, Jeff has another liter worthy classic coming out of our O’side spot that you’ll need to come in for, cause this one is draft only. Similar to Bier (our Helles that we’ve made so many times here at GC), but with a different yeast strain and pilsner malt. The result is a touch richer and more full than our normal take. It’s lovely. Fresh baked bread like aromatics and flavor, with a soft roundness on the palate, and just enough hop bitterness to maintain excellent drinkability.

5.0% ABV

Bird Nerd

A German-Style Pilsner

We all know a fresh German Pils is hard to come by. Luckily for all of us, Jeff brewed up an insanely legit batch out of our spot in O’side and we’ve now got it in 12oz cans! Made to be as traditional as possible using all German ingredients, the texture on this one is wonderfully firm in bitterness and greets your palate with mouth coating dryness that lingers in the long finish. It’s not too much of this, or not enough of that, but just right in its endless drinkability. Cheers to warmer weather and birds chirp’n!!!

5.3% ABV

Nectaron?! In This Economy?!

A Hoppy Pils w/ 100% Nectaron Hops

With the absolute legend Dr Ron coming into town from New Zealand, we wanted to make something that he could sip on while teaching us all about his life’s work in creating our favorite Southern Hemisphere hops. Using Brent’s hops from @‌machopsnz , this West Coast Pils is saturated with Nectaron from whirlpool to dry hop, and it hits with a wide range of characteristics. Flavor profile? Think the freshest and fruitiest cannabis, new tennis balls, orange zest, and dry riesling.

5.4% ABV

Smooth Is Fast

West Coast Pilsner w/ Nelson & Citra

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.

5.6% ABV

Josh's New Tiny Shoes

It's a Small IPA W/ Mosaic, Strata & Citra

With welcoming his first kiddo into this world, Josh (one of our esteemed brewers in Orange) wanted to make a beer to commemorate this beautiful moment. So here it is! A small IPA that keeps hop flavor insanely high, and abv wonderfully sessionable. Super pale in color, with just the right amount of body, and all the hoppy vibes of fresh mandarin zest and pineapples spears.

4.8% ABV

Second Hand Embarrassment

Collab w/ @‌balterbrewers // A Clear IPA w/ Scotty's Favorite Hops: Mosaic, Manilita, & Riwaka

Bringing your favorite Aussie in for a brew day is kind of like that one book “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie”… you give that man an inch and he takes a mile! The next thing you know he’s grabbing the only box of Manalita (a brand new hop varietal from our pals at @‌freestylehops ) to use in the dry hop, along with his own blend of his favorite hops. You gotta give it to Scotty though, cause this beer came out so good! Dude is a legend. Tasting notes? Kern’s Mango Nectar, Cactus Cooler, Strawberry Nesquik, the zestiest citrus, the most tropical fruit, and the best of times. It’s one of my favorite IPA’s we’ve done this year. Shhhhh. Just don’t tell Scotty.

6.3% ABV

False Memories

West Coast IPA w/ Citra, Mosaic, & HBC 586

This one was awarded a Silver Medal in the West Coast IPA category at the recent World Beer Cup 2024 beer competition! Its got a lean body, a snappy bitterness, a dab of hoppy resin in the linger, and all the hoppy aromatics we need!! Well…that, and a good pally to enjoy it with! Flavor profile? Think Ruby Red grapefruit, navel oranges, and the Devil’s Lettuce in the linger.

7.0% ABV

Better Late Than Deader

West Coast IPA W/ HBC 586, Ekuanot, and Rakau

Switched out the hops on our Ain’t Getting Any Deader recipe, and hit this one with a yummo blend of American and New Zealand grown hops. The result? Light in color, super lean, lovingly resinous, and hitting with a flavor combo of strawberry shortcake, mango Hi-Chew, and blood oranges.

7.0% ABV

The Mystifier

Cold IPA W/ Mosaic, HBC 586 & Citra Incognito

Confused about the whole Cold IPA thing? Well, it’s a rice IPA, fermented with lager yeast at warmer temps, but still has the ol’ I.P.A. acronym, instead of the IPL (India Pale Lager) one. Oregon and Washington grown hops combine with a lean malt and rice bill to create something that smells like ripe Maui Wowee, grapefruit oil, and Orange Mamba.

7.2% ABV

Excessive Laughter

Collab w/ @nzhopsltd DDH West Coast DIPA w/ Nelson Cryo, Riwaka & Nectaron

It’s not everyday that Dr Ron (a mad scientist of hop breeding genius that has created 16 different New Zealand Hop varietals including Nelson, Riwaka, Nectaron and many more within the 40 years of his career), Devin (of @‌nzhops ), and Brent (5th generation hop farmer and owner of @‌machops ) come for a visit and a brew day here at Green Cheek. We spent the day smelling hops, talking hops, bbq’n, and just trying to soak up as much wisdom from these legends as possible! Tasting notes? That good ol’ NZ funk (that we often describe as gooseberry), yuzu, lychee, and a dab of the devli’s lettuce.

8.5% ABV

Wherever You Go

DDH Hazy IPA W/Motueka & Citra

Made with a mountain of old fashioned oats, we keep this thing as light in color as we can before its double dry hopped. Milky-yellowy-white, smooth and creamy, with hoppy layers of strawberry smoothie, basil flowers, and pear. Finishes with those white frosting vibes that we can't get enough of.

7.0% ABV

Just One Thing...Citra

DDH Hazy DIPA w/ 100% Citra

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. Our hand-selected lot of Citra from Yakima Valley hits with a flavor profile of Orange Sherbet, Dole Whip soft serve, fresh grand daddy purple, mandarin zest and those vanilla frosting vibes that I can’t get enough of.

8.7% ABV

Uncle Dave's Fave

English Bitter on Nitro. Brewed W/ Our Bud Dave Naylor

One of our favorite regulars, Dave Naylor, is an avid Homebrewer that brings in some of our favorite homebrews to share with all of us. He tends to make a lot of English-style beers that are great on cask, so we worked together on this English Classic that uses all the lovely @simpsonsmalt Maris Otter and Crystal Malts, along with whole leaf Strata from our pals at @indiehops . Dave says…. "What an awesome opportunity for me, after a recent trip to Wales ??????? where I grew up! Well here it is: “Dave’s Fave” Best Bitter! The National drink of England & Wales ???????! A malt-forward, balanced and flavorful, yet refreshing session beer. Goes well with fish and chips, meat pies, and gloomy wet weather! Have 2 or 3 or more, cause it’s “ a bloody good pint “ - Dave Naylor. aka @ladave66

4.4% ABV

St. Pally's Day

Irish-Style Dry Stout

Brewed out of our new spot in Oceanside, we love this beer for its jet black color, its beige foam, and for its flavor profile of milk chocolate and lightly sweetened columbian coffee. The beer is creamy on the palate and finishes with a touch of roastiness.
