Using all German ingredients, except for the water, each batch is another baby step towards recreating what we’ve experienced in Munich. Straw in color, with a subtly and nuance that is hard to describe and instead needs to be experienced! Notes of fresh baked bread, herbal tea, and hay create a beer style that is praised for it’s liter-worthy drinkability.
Italian-Style Pilsner W/ Saphir, h. blanc & huell melon
After drinking this dry hopped lager style from a few Italian breweries at the Pils & Love Fest earlier this year, we knew it was only a matter of time until we made our own version of it. Brewed with Italian Pilsner malt and some of our favorite German hops; Saphir, Hallertau Blanc and Huell Melon, the result is medium-bodied with a soft malt presence and enough bitterness to create that snappiness that you hope for in a Pils. The aromatics and flavor are full of herbal notes, with a sage and honey character that carries into the dry finish.
California Pilsner w/ strata, mosaic & citra
Yep, we hear you loud and clear! You've been asking for more dry and crispy lagers, and we've got one more for you. Our California Pilsner brings you the big hoppy flavor and aroma that you like in IPA, but the drinkability and lower abv of what you're diggin in a stronger Pils. This one gets hit with a heavy dry hop of Strata from @indiehops , as well as Citra and Mosaic.
Can't Never Could
Hazy IPA w/Citra - Collab w/Creature Comforts
We got together with the homies from Creature Comforts again, and brewed on our new brew kit in Costa Mesa. During the brew, I pressed the wrong button, and spilled 1/3 of the mash all over the floor, taking our Hazy Double IPA, down to a Hazy Single IPA. Sorry! Anyway. We had them send down their hand-selected lot of Citra, and fermented this with a yeast strain that we’ve both have never used before. All fun. The result showcases their Citra, and hits with flavors of lemon zest and pineapple. Can’t. Never. Could.
West Coast IPA w/ Nelson & Mosaic
We took our West Coast IPA is Dead recipe, lightened up the color, and switched hops over to Mosaic and Nelson. Super punchy on the aromatics, with some well rounded bitterness and lots of ripe mango, Riesling, and that cotton candy-pixie dust that Connor Casey loves so much!
Because of the Way It Is
West Coast IPA w/ Motueka & Ekuanot
Always In Love
Hazy DIPA w/Citra & Motueka
If you’re in love with love and lousy poetry, this one is for you. Don’t worry if your heart is full of holes, this hazy double IPA will fill you right up. Perfect for fathers, mothers, siblings, friends, and lovers.
Staring At Rainbows
Hazy DIPA collab w/ Bearded Iris
Our bud Matt from Bearded Iris flew all the way out from Nashville, to show us how to make his insanely soft and fruity Hazy DIPA’s, and we followed his every word to make it exactly the way he wanted. We used a fun experimental hop from the homies Freestyle Hops , loads of Citra and then sprinkled in a little Sabro. We tried out a different yeast strain, and switched up our dry hop technique, all for the sake of trying to (somehow) replicate their Hazy DIPA. The result is full-bodied and soft, with lots of strawberry, this pina colada type-thing, and a bit of big stick popsicle.
I Knew That Years Ago
California DIPA w/Strata & Mosaic
Nitro Oatmeal Stout
Coconut Rye Stout
As a sign of respect to the previous owners of our new spot in Costa Mesa, it just made sense to us that we needed to make our first brew on the system a Coconut Rye Stout. Full-bodied, a tad sweet, and giving some Almond Joy-like vibes from the use of chocolatey malted barley and a huge 12 pound per bbl addition of real toasted coconut! Served on draft (CO2, not nitro)
A Solution Presents Itself

Time Will Tell
Foeder-Aged Old School Sour Ale
Fermented in our French Oak Foeder with our house mixed culture and then keg conditioned to develop carbonation naturally. Aged hops, pilsner malt, unmalted wheat, and lots of time make for a beer that is both bitter and acidic, with lots of stone fruit funk and a bit of herbacous potpourri-like character.
