ON TAP

canteen (bright ale)

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. An easy drinking ale brewed like a classic pilsner to help lighten your load. At 4.5% Canteen is designed to get you from trailhead to summit! 4.5% abv

Trellis (single hop shrub)

A single hop showcase featuring Idaho 7! Notes of candied pineapple with an herbal bitter kick. Small beer, big hop=shrub! 4.7% abv

self titled (petite saison)

A beer so lovely we named a brewery for it. Self Titled is a petit saison beer with a refreshingly crisp, wheat kissed body designed for play in the sun. Fresh baked french bread and biscuit support notes of white grape and marmalade from Nelson Sauvin hops. A noble guide to delicate flavors and subtlety. 4.8% abv

LUNA (witbier)

This take on a Belgian summer classic is the color of the rising moon. Gently spiced with toasted coriander and orange peel along with a kiss of chamomile. Aromas of orange cream, sugar cookies, lavender and ginger cradle a soft and cuddly mouthfeel to a lightly tart and snappy finish. Like its namesake, sugar and spice and everything nice. Over the moon to welcome baby Luna to the world 5.2% abv

 

trabuco (brown ale)

The murky waters of San Juan Creek that (occasionally) flow behind our brewery are fed by the Arroyo Trabuco. Named for one clumsy conquistador’s misplaced blunderbuss – a flared barrel musket – which inspires this deep umber ale. Dark brown as the stock of its namesake, this shallow ABV brew surprises with depth of flavor. Comforting notes of toasted pecans, sweet tobacco leaf, cocoa powder and a hint of blueberry waffles. Fittingly the Arroyo Trabuco winds through many of the trails our beloved mountain bikers call home away from, and inevitably lead to, our public’s house. 5% abv

 

The rube (red rye ale)

A yokel, a country bumpkin. Rustic w/ his own refined dignity. Bold yet balanced, audacious but approachable. Malt and hops in harmonious heft. Sweet caramel and spicy rye balanced by an assertive, candied grapefruit bitterness in this easy drinking red ale. Inspired by the classic cocktail, the Rube is your mid-day Manhattan.  8% abv

Double Nickels (pale ale)

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.  

A silver medal winner in the 2018 World Beer Cup for American Pale Ale!

tiny umbrellas (easy ipa)

Inspired by the titular garnish on a Mai Tai yet an all day beach blanket beer at only 5.6% abv. Sunny notes of mango, guava, and passionfruit shine from an exotic cocktail of hops that lounge upon just enough bitterness to call it an IPA. Approachable and crisp, this tropical fruity brew is crafted to drink in a hammock on the sand. 5.7% abv

rhizome cowboy (Fresh Hopped ipa IPA)

An exhibit in simplicity / 3 hops 1 grain on a carbonated crime spree / Strata and Mos spin / a gold toned rope / to lasso your nose in / and hold it for ransom / O’s in tandem / Every glass grabs a new slab of fandom / Every sip eclipse the last beer you had son / Hold the cold one that stole the show for fun 6.8% abv 

 

only under any circumstances (pale Ale)

Bright + Tropical & Flexible! Notes of orangeade, passionfruit, pineapple + coconut. Appropriate always. 5.3% abv

 

 

Gimme (ipa)

The perfect course companion. On the green with hoppy notes of tropical fruits and candied citrus. Wheat malt tees a subtle tart snap and caddies a medium bodied, easy swinger. An ace, or at least close enough amongst friends, now gimme another! 7.2% abv

pillow fight (ipa)

A feathery mouthfeel is declared champion as oats strike a fluffy stunner upon a clean pilsner malt bed. Citra, Nelson, and Amarillo battle it out intensely in this bright and potent IPA. 7.1% abv

 

rabbit habit (Double ipa)

The habit of rabit? No carrots here, Jack. This riddle of a double IPA is easliy solved when a bright blend of berry and citrus leap out of the glass. Whiskers wiggle above a healthy heap of Mosaic and Simcoe for an evolving aroma experience. 8.1% abv

 

super tonic (Oatmeal coffee stout)

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

grandpappy (imperial stout)

Greet a glass full of dark chocolate, graham cracker, dried cherry, and espresso in this warming, rich and complex imperial stout. A fireside storyteller of a beer, Grandpappy’s tale unfolds with each sniff and sip. 9.5% abv.

 

Great grandpappy ( BA imperial stout)

Rested for 18 months in Rye whiskey barrels. Greet a glass full of dark chocolate, graham cracker, dried cherry, and espresso in this warming, rich and complex imperial stout. A fireside storyteller of a beer, Grandpappy’s tale unfolds with each sniff and sip. 11.7% abv.
