Your trusty, refreshing, bright ale.  Reach for Canteen when the journey gets thirsty.  Nimble honey and almond from German pilsner malt and spicy Saaz hops forge ahead with rice along to lighten the load of this easy drinker.
At 4.5% abv. Canteen is designed to get you from trailhead to summit!


Brewed to a calculated 55 ibus and 5.5% abv or double nickels on the dime.  Angular notes of ruby red grapefruit, sweet orange, and pine strum upon a groovy bassline of light honey and vanilla in a compact yet satisfying little ditty.  A liquid tribute to a group of cats from San Pedro who jam econo – or fitting a lot into a little. “Punk was whatever we made it to be” a quote from late lead singer/guitarist D Boon inspires every recipe Ive ever brewed. Listen to the Minutemen, their band could be your life.  

Double Nickels is a silver medal winner in the 2018 World Beer Cup for American Pale Ale!


Belgian Style Wheat Ale. Lightly spiced with coriander, Orange Peel & Chamomile. Notes of Sugar, Spice & Everything Nice. 5%abv

Luna is a silver medal winner in the 2020 San Diego International  Beer Competition for Wit!


Musically speaking, the second note of the diatonic scale, or one step above Tonic. In our terms, a more potent elixir than the original. Infused with more flavors of milk chocolate, more roast, more mouthfeel, and most important – more coffee. Whoever said there can be too much of a good thing never had a chance to try this here beer. A wiser man once said – everything in moderation, especially moderation. Cheers to that, and you! 8.5% abv.

Super Tonic is a 5x gold medal winner in the 2020 & 2022 Great American Beer Festival and  2020, 2021, & 2022 San Diego International  Beer Competition for Coffee Stout!
