This may not be the buddy you can rely on to scare away the seagulls from your snacks, but it's just a beer, what do you expect?
Our new all-malt lager is a nod to German-style Leightbier, where it’s low in abv, but keeps body and bitterness slightly higher than what you'd expect in an American Light Lager. Best served ice cold with some tasty waves.
Here We Are
Belgian-style White Ale w/ Oranges & Coriander
Using Raw Wheat, Pilsner Malt, old fashioned oats, and then fermented with an estery Belgian yeast. We finished it off with fresh ground coriander and some orange peel that we made ourselves by zesting and drying locally grown oranges. The result is a thirst quencher and definitely a reminder to us of how much we love this beer style! The spice and zest are present, but without trampling all over the expressive yeast
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.
Buddy, Friend, Homie, Pally, Amico, or whatever you call your favorite people, let’s celebrate those friendships with a Pils or two! Light, dry and snappy, we built the base with German Pilsner malt and layered it with a variety of different German hops throughout the boil and whirlpool and then dry hopped it with the all new (to us), German grown Amarillo. The result is dry and fairly bitter, with some herbal, and even a touch of dank, flavor notes.
West Coast IPA w/ Mosaic & Nelson
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!
Impersonate Greater Persons
DDH West Coast IPA. Collab w/ North Park
Our pal Kelsey McNair, Founder & Head Brewer for North Park Beer Co, is such a good dude! Not only is he a San Diego brewing legend, but he’s humble, collaborative, and truly talented when it comes to his craft. We had the pleasure of brewing with him earlier this month, and we’re pretty damn excited about the results. This one is hoppy to the max, and super fresh smelling! It’s like opening a bag of hops!! It’s insane!!! Think of fresh watermelon juice, rosemary, peeled cucumbers, and that linger hits just a dab of pine stickiness.
Still Taking Notes
Hazy DIPA w/ Citra, Nelson & Sabro
Hazy Double IPA w/ Citra, Nelson & a little dab of Sabro
We’ve got that color super pale, that body full, and that hop combo explosive. This one hits with juicy layers of mandarin, lychee, and Capri Sun vibes.
Porter w/ Madagascar Vanilla Beans
Porter w/ Madagascar Vanilla Beans
It’s a simple beer, that’s rides the line between a porter and a stout, with something fun thrown in! We ground up 5 lbs of Madagascar Vanilla Beans, sprinkled them in after fermentation, and conditioned this one till juuuuuuust right. In an exciting world filled with pastry stouts, it could be easy to overlook this understated hero. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love a big zany liquid desert that’s stuffed to the brim with delicious treats as much as the next guy! But sometimes… it’s nice sit just down with a pint of a fun little beer that’s painted with a more delicate brush. It’s nice and “s’moresy”, with vibes of milk chocolate bar, melty marshmallows, and even a bit of graham cracker in the finish.
Time Will Tell
Foeder Aged Old School Sour
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.
