LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT OUR BEERS...

BEERS BY US!

Water Skies V1.0

Our Very Own Hop Water w/ Citra & Mosaic

We've been in the background for the last few months working on a hop water that we actually wanted to drink. Finally, after waaaaaay too much R&D, we've got one ready for ya! Ours is super bubbly, with a yummo blend of Citra & Mosaic that give it a flavor profile of mango sorbet, handfuls of skittles, and the devil's lettuce. Whether you're not drinking at the moment, or just want to extend your visit, we've got you!

0.0% ABV

Lavender Lemonade

Sparkling Hard Seltzer w/ Lavender & Lemon

We’ve got some Hard Lemonade for sale! And look at that color! That beautiful, natural color comes from the use of an insane amount of lavender pods that we use to brew a ginormous, fresh batch of lavender tea, that then gets blended with our lemonade-style seltzer. It drinks pretty balanced, with the acidity and sweetness hitting at just the right level, and then a soft tannic hit of dryness from the lavender. Enjoy straight out of the can, or pour over ice. Also legit with a dram of Old Tom Gin.

5.0% ABV

Pierre's Paloma

A Paloma-Style Hard Seltzer

Inspired by the Paloma cocktail, Pierre has been hard at work these last few months trying to create the most perfect version of this yummo refresher using only the purest ingredients. Pink grapefruit juice, lots of grapefruit zest, and cane sugar come together with just the right amount of booze, acidity, and richness for that perfect sip of vacation vibes. You can enjoy this one at our spot, or take home cans to enjoy at yours. Served with a 'lil ice and a fresh grapefruit wheel.

6.0% ABV

Let's Keep It Low Key

Small Helles-Style Lager

I’m not sure about you, but we’re just trying to keep it low key over here at GC. After last week’s high key, this week is all about low key.  So join us in this week’s motto by sit’n back with a liter or four of this traditional German-style Lager that those who know call a Leichtbier. Wonderfully liter-worthy, with a soft & well integrated bitterness, and a bit less heft than what you’d expect from Helles.

4.0% ABV

The Language of Lager

10° Czech-Style Pale Lager

Another draft only crusher out of O’side’s Lager Lounge™. As is tradition, Floor malted Bohemian Pilsner malt and lots of Czech Saaz hops come together to create a lager that is lower on the abv spectrum and full of lovely hop flavor and aroma. Bitterness is firm and snappy. Words can only do so much. You’ll have to drink it.

4.0% ABV

Poolsner

An Easy Drinkin' American Pilsner

A cold beer that was made for drink’n straight out of the can while float’n in a lazy river with your favorite pallys up in Paso! Yeah, that’s wildly too specific, especially since this batch is draft only, so let’s focus on the beer. Well, it’s an American Pils through and through, where the hop bitterness is deliciously noticeable, but still easy on your taste buds, and the hop character (coming from Crystal hops out of Oregon) is lovingly nuanced from sniff to sip. The body remains light and the beer stays easy drink’n. You can think about it all you want, or just slam it down and ask for another. Your choice.

4.5% ABV

Flying South

A Mexican-Style Lager

If you're looking for those Modelo vibes, without the skunkiness, we've got you! This crusher hits light in all the ways you'd hope for, with a crispiness not typically seen in our usual line up. The beauty is in its simplicity.

5.0% ABV

Modern Traditions

Bavarian-Style Hefeweizen

This Bavarian-style Wheat Beer uses all German ingredients, except for the water, and is kept unfined and unfiltered. The yummo flavorful yeast strain that we use during fermentation creates insane amounts of banana smoothie vibes to this one, and really makes this one go ahhhhhhhh!

5.0% ABV

Bird Nerd

A German-Style Pilsner

We all know a fresh German Pils is hard to come by. Luckily for all of us, Jeff brewed up an insanely legit batch out of our spot in O’side and we’ve now got it in 12oz cans! Made to be as traditional as possible using all German ingredients, the texture on this one is wonderfully firm in bitterness and greets your palate with mouth coating dryness that lingers in the long finish. It’s not too much of this, or not enough of that, but just right in its endless drinkability. Cheers to warmer weather and birds chirp’n!!!

5.3% ABV

Premium Classics

American Export Lager

Our O’side Lager Lounge™ is bringing all you Pallys™ another draft only release. This one uses Pilsner malt, along with a mix of rice and corn to help lighten the body, and a blend of German hops for all the right texture. As Jeff says, it’s very sneaky, and an easy drinker, with a nice little hop note.

5.8% ABV

Lizard Jim

West Coast Pils w/ HBC 586

Our very own James Barnett, aka Lizard Jim, aka Distribution Coordinator extraordinaire, jumped in on a brew day at The Rave Cave™ to spin out something ultra slithery with the Brew Team. He wanted something crushable, super lean, dry, and heavily saturated with his favorite hop (HBC 586), so here it is! The result hits with all the white gummy bear vibes, fresh orange blossoms, and some pink grapefruit peel.

5.7% ABV

Completely Uninvisible

Cold IPA w/ Simcoe, Motueka, Citra, Nectaron

Trying to put together the most perfect blend of hops that complement our house lager yeast fermentation for these rice IPA’s has been super fun. This one was no different. Using a blend of American hops and Kiwi hops, this one hits with all the right vibes of citrus (lime zest and grapefruit) and tropical fruit (kiwi and pineapple).

6.8% ABV

Over Notification'd

American IPA w/ Simcoe & Amarillo

A touch more body and a touch more color than our usual West Coast hit brings us into American IPA territory. The rad mix of our hand selected Simcoe pairs perfectly with that @royfarms Amarillo that we love so much. Been a moment since we’ve used this hop combo, and it’s a great reminder of how well these hops work together.

6.8% ABV

Calmer Than You Are

A West Coast DIPA w/ Mosaic & Ekuanot

This heavy hitter brings all the West Coast love ya need! Lovingly hop saturated from sniff to sip, with a clean snappy bitterness, a dab of resin in the linger, and a lightness of body that keeps this big one’s drinkability at a dangerously high level. Hops kick in with a flavor profile of fresh mandarin, sticky Maui Wowee, and some of that good ol’ fashion cotton-candy-pixie-dust that Connor Casey loves so much.

8.8% ABV

Forced Optimism

A Hazy IPA w/ Citra & a dab of Idaho 7

We convinced ourselves that Idaho 7 could potentially play nicely with Citra if used at the right amount, and added at the right time. Well, let me tell you, we were right! The Idaho 7 adds a rich layer of hoppiness that stays underneath all the Citra, and doesn't overwhelm all the mango and orange soda vibes we are looking for.

6.8% ABV

Just Two Things...Citra & Nelson!

DDH Hazy DIPA w/ Citra & Nelson

One in a series of beers highlighting how the combination of two hop varieties can create something extra special together. These two hops, our hand selected Citra & Nelson, are just made for each other. Like Bonnie & Clyde. John & George. Cheeky & Pierre. The rich mango candy from the Citra pairs wonderfully with all the passion fruit from the Nelson. Just straight yummo! Can’t stop smelling this one!!!

8.7% ABV

Like Hugging A Cat

collab w/ @fraugruber_brewing // DDH Hazy TIPA w/ Citra & HBC 586 Cryo

Our pals @fraugruber_brewing from Germany came out to our Costa Mesa spot to brew something big, juicy, and hoppy with us a few weeks back. This brewery is famous for their IPA’s and so we had a blast putting our brains together on this one. We used lots of our mango heavy Citra and combined it with some of our HBC 586 Cryo that has crazy levels of Orange Bang like character.

10.2% ABV

Forever At the Push of A Button

DDH Hazy TIPA w/ Citra, Motueka, Nelson, & Riwaka

Just like widgets, ya press a button and the beer is made, right? Well, I wish I could say it was that easy, and so do the brewers, but instead we care for each and every one of these batches like a new born. Tasting notes? This hop combo does a cannonball into a bowl of fruit salad and creates a flavor profile of pineapple chunks, fresh mango slices, frozen white grapes, and kiwi. This batch is crazy yummo.

10.2% ABV

Shhhhhh...This Is Ryan's Award Winning Brown Ale

English-style Brown Ale

Our 2023 Gold Medal winning brown ale is nothing new, as it's a style that's been around for ages, but we get really excited about the classics too! The focus of this beer is all in the blend of toasted and caramelized malted barleys from our pals across the pond @simpsonsmalt. Lightly hopped, just enough to create balance, and smooooooth. Flavor notes? Think caramel sauce, toasty bread, and malty tea.

5.5% ABV

Salty Message

German-Style Sour w/ Pink Salt & Magnolia Scented Tea

Our new school approach to this classic Leipzig Gose style, uses a mash of unmalted wheat and pilsner malt, as well a natural souring process, to create the perfect base to steep lots of rolled oolong tea that has been scented with magnolia flowers. It’s refreshingly sour and salty, with all the vibes of magnolia flowers and a jasmine-like character from sniff to sip.
