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.
Cali Pils w/ Motueka
The self-proclaimed Pils Titan is a living and breathing, freewheelin' phenomenon that pours your Pils slow, to ensure that the head is rocky and pops out of the glass like a marshmallow cloud on top of your beer. To the Pils Titan, we say "Thank You" for caring about the presentation of a finely crafted Pils. With the hoppiness of some of your favorite IPA's, and the drinkability of some of your favorite Pilsners, we bring you your new California lover! Brewed and extra dry hopped with only New Zealand's Motueka from Freestyle Farms, this beer shines with a lime sherbet-like hoppiness, but remains dry and sinkable.
Stars For Days
Triple Dry Hopped Hazy DIPA w/ Citra & Nelson
Our first triple dry hopped DIPA gets the star treatment, and creates a super full mouthfeel from that massive dry hop. The Citra & Nelson bring together a flavor profile of nectarine and guava, and even hit with a bit of lychee too. Pretty excited about this one!
Illusion of Choice
Hazy TIPA w/ Citra & Galaxy
This full-bodied juice king is built with a base of Pilsner malt, unmalted wheat ,and rolled oats then double dry hopped with Citra and Galaxy. Tasting notes? Fresh squeezed Oro Blanco grapefruit juice, white gummy bears, and super ripe mango.
Irish Dry Stout on Nitro
Our first Irish-style dry stout features all Simpsons Malt: heavy on the Marris Otter and balanced with additions of Crystal, and Chocolate Malt. Served on nitro, we can't decide if we enjoy watching the cascade or just crushing this perfectly balanced dry stout more.
Not A Vanity Project
Oak Lagered Shwarzbier. Collab w/ Resident Culture
Back in January of this year, we had the pleasure to have our bud, Chris, from Resident Culture out from North Carolina for a brew with us. That batch was the 2nd brew on our new (to us) brewhouse at Green Cheek Too, and we and totally messed it up. We re-brewed that beer in March with waaaay better success and then lagered it in our cold room in American Oak Barrels, with Amburana wood added to them, for 10 weeks. Amburana wood, aka Brazilian Oak, is the key ingredient that changes this Schwarzbier into something unlike anything we’ve made before with it’s cacao, cinnamon and cola-like flavors. The beer is a deep brown, almost black, is medium in body, and from first sip, hits with a Cola-like spice character, a bit of nutmeg, some cacao and finishes dry. Such a fun project!
Nitro Golden Milk Stout w/ Portola Coffee
We teamed up with our bud, Jeff Duggan of Portola Coffee, to bring you something that looks like a blonde ale, but tastes like a coffee milk stout! It’s full-bodied, creamy like a Portola cappuccino, and hits with flavors of fresh baked chocolate chip cookies, toasted almonds, and coffee, yep, lots of coffee! Each can is ON NITRO, so you’ll want to give it a light shake back and forth, crack it open, and then pour fast, down the side of your pint glass. *contains lactose*

Velvet Glow // Helles-Style Lager
Velvet Glow is an homage to an old Grace Brother’s Brewing beer brewed right here in Santa Rosa! The Grace Brother’s brewery was around from 1933 to 1966, where they created many iconic beer brands including Velvet Glow and Happy Hops. This Helles style lager is a clean, crisp, and refreshing beer with a bright straw color, aromas and flavors of bread crust and biscuit. There is a very low bitterness with a mild hop aroma. 4.75% ABV
Happy Hops // IPA
Test session apa using 369 hops, daughter hybrid from Simcoe.
Not really a Blonde Ale, not a Pale Ale, not an IPA. Happy Hops is a light colored refreshing ale with a pronouced hop character.
Pliny the Elder // DIPA
A true leader in the hop-wars of the west coast, Pliny the Elder hits you over the head with hoppy bitterness and manages to smooth the rough edges out enough to become an enjoyable brew.
Wisdom Is Learned // Barrel Aged Saison w/ Masumoto Peaches
Saison aged in French oak barrels with Masumoto Family Farms "Suncrest" peaches (SARA’s Cellar Club only).
