ON TAP

canteen

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

Thirst Responder

Heroic Notes of Orange peel, Vanilla, and Berry from Lotus hops in this refreshing Lager. Rice lends a soft niguri finish. 5.3% abv

turtleneck 

Function over fashion? Perhaps, for once. In the jolly time of ugly sweaters here is a Turtleneck you can be proud to sport. Imbued with kisses of spicy ginger, this throat warming, Winter inspired, Belgian-style strong blonde goes down smooth like fine linen. The perfect swig under the mistletoe with your darling or for when the midnight bells ring in our next 365 or 6 days. No itchy side effects, no sly snickering, just pure cozy comfort in a glass.  8% abv.

SElf-titled

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

THE RUBE 

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

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!

Peel top

Nectar like notes of mango and tangerine in a bready and balanced pale ale. The pale ale has been many a beer drinkers jump off point and we are proud to offer this take on a classic highlighting some of our favorite contemporary hops. abv 6%

 

GIMME

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! 7.1% abv

retreat

Call it a south west bitter cloudy for all I care. I call it delicious, and a nice retreat from the tedious grind of figuring out what style fits where. Duke Ellington once said, “there are two kinds of music – good music, and that other kind” Nelson, El Dorado, and Pilsner malt join hands and sang ultra-harmonic notes of pineapple, orange, and guava – Treat, retreat, repeat. 6.8% abv

Rabbit habit

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

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
