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

MONGER’S CHOICE (KOLSCH)

Jack’s first brew. 4.9% 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

HER MAJESTY (ESB)

Extra Special, to be sure, but not so Bitter by today’s standards. This classic English pub style inspired a Yankee or two to brew something very different from the Light Lager dominating the American beer scene in the 80s. A nod to our American interpretation of a malt forward, satisfying beer and the craft ale trailblazers who dared introduce such a foreign and tasty tipple to us across the pond. Nourishing and rich but also dry and rather easy drinking. She goes down smooth and still keeps it regal. All hail the queen!

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!

peel top (PALE ale)

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.  6%. 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

CAN’T COMPLAIN (DRY HOPPED CREAM ALE)

Lager like and friendly. Subtle corn sweetness partners with a bright orange character from amicably sprinkled Amarillo hops. This brew is your kindly barstool companion. Always to be relied upon as a reminder that things are not bad, and, well, mostly pretty good. Even if there was reason to grumble, nobody is listening. A brew to turn to in good times, and those other kinds of times. A celebration of good old beer-flavored beer, which ain’t so easy to find these days. Not that I am complainin’. 5.2% ABV

ECHOES (ipa)

Echoes of a distant tide still resonate with us – the classic, bitter, piney, citrusy remnants of yesteryear’s IPA. Ripples of Mandarin orange, lemon peel, spruce and hints of fresh baked country bread call to you above the glass stirring memories of sips of yore. Cloudless and bright upon your waking eyes, inviting and inciting you to take another trip. Don’t let these echoes fade into the past. 7% abv

RHIZOME COWBOY (ipa)

An exhibit in simplicity / 3 hops 1 grain on a carbonated crime spree / Strata and Mosaic 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 glass you chugged from / Hold the cold one that stole the show for fun. 6.8% 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

Super Tonic is a 3x  gold medal winner at GABF & San Diego International!

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 (BARREL aged imperial stout)

Wise old stout rested for 19 months in Kentucky Bourbon barrels. Imbued with notes crème brule, coconut, vanilla from the oak. 11.7% abv.
