Our Beers:

This American classic is great to drink while working in the yard, garage, or just while hanging out with friends and family.

Serenity

Serenity is a labor of love a long time coming. Our 1st Anniversary ale tested the limits of our current system for our longest brewday yet before we put it in whisky barrels for 9 months of aging. It emerged a Barleywine to be proud of. A healthy dose of dark caramel malt imbues Serenity’s aroma with a candy sweetness that plays well with the whisky aromatics. Upon tasting, the sweet nose gives way to a refreshingly bitter bite that strikes a harmonious balance by the finish. Full-bodied and flavorful, Serenity invites you to pause for a moment of relief from a busy day – or year.

ABV: 12.1%

Jazz Man Pale Ale

Jazz Man is a Pale Ale fused with Jasmine Flowers and Grains of Paradise; this combination creates a refreshing floral aroma. The flavor from the jasmine flower is balanced and stands tall on a stage of citrus and sweet malt character. In the finale, you are left with a crisp finish, a hint of jasmine and a feeling that Spring is in full swing.

Availabilty: March – April

Lazy Saison

Lazy Saison is our easy-drinking seasonal for a laid-back summer’s eve. A peppery spice and classic Pils character bolster our yeast’s clove notes to establish a strong saison backbone. From there a late infusion of Goji berries evoke a surprising tropical impression that recalls sun-ripened fruit. Balanced flavors and a clean, dry finish make this exceptionally sessionable for a 7% brew. Think San Diego poolhouse meets Belgian Farmhouse.

Availability: May – June

Chaotic Double IPA

Our San Diego Pale Ale has so many hop additions that we were forced to redesign our brewlogs to fit everything on one page. Though it pours a surprisingly light gold, a slight haze betrays the huge amount of dry-hops that complete each batch. This onslaught hits the entire spectrum of hop flavors and aromas with especially notable grapefruit and pine character. The balance, if you can call it that, is decidedly bitter with just enough clean malt flavor to keep you coming back – this isn’t your typical “one and done” Double IPA! Brewed by San Diego hopheads for San Diego hopheads, Chaotic is a charmingly aggressive beer.

Availability: As Often as we can brew it.
