LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT OUR BEERS...

BEERS BY US!

That New Lime Seltzer

A Bubbly Hard Seltzer w/ Fresh Lime

We wanted to keep this super yummo sun-time refresher nice & simple. So, what's in That New Lime Seltzer? First, we fresh squeeze in half a lime, then fill it with 16oz of our sparkling hard seltzer, scoop some ice on top, & then hit with a fresh lime wheel. Boom! That's it! Easy peasy.

4.0% ABV

Lavender Lemonade

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

Spring G&T

Gin & Tonic-Style Hard Seltzer

Our Spring iteration of this rotating seasonal sipper is a strong, more contemporary-style G&T, that focuses on a range of different citrus types to get us into more mmmmmhs and ahhhhhhs. Fresh zests of Lemon, Grapefruit, Mandarin, and Sweet Lime were used, along with some dried citrus, damiana leaf, ginger root and a dab of spruce tips. We had a fun in-house competition of who could make the best version, and one of our brewers out of Orange (Josh!) won this round with his lemon forward G&T that shows through with just the right amount of spice. Served over ice with some fresh expressed lemon peel.

12.0% ABV

A Little Too Sessionable, Even For Me

A New school 10° Czech-Style Pale Lager w/ Michigan Saaz & a dab of Luminosa

We brewed up a super traditional Czech-style Lager at the Orange brewery using floor-malted barley straight from the source, & then made a couple changes on the hopping than what would considered to be traditional. We went heavy on the Saaz that was grown in Michigan, & then finished this one with a little bit of Luminosa (grown by our pals @‌indiehops ) & Nectaron (from our pals @‌machops ) in the whirlpool & the super light dry hop. The result is full of wonderful, well integrated bitterness from all of that Saaz, & even has all the yummy herbal undertones from it too. There’s a delicate orange zestiness that shows through on the palate from those new school hops, but since they weren’t heavy handed, it all plays super nice together.

4.0% ABV

Basically Local

A Mexican-Style Lager

If you’re looking for an easy drinking lager made out of our brewery in O’side, you’ve come to the right place! Made with pilsner malt and just the right amount of corn, this one goes light on the hops to showcase it all just perfectly. Feel free to add a lime if you’re feeling it!!!

4.5% ABV

The Mighty Rhine

German-Style Amber

Here’s a beer style originating out of Dusseldorf, Germany that we all refer to as Altbier. Fermented with the same yeast used for Kölsch, this is a sort of hybrid style of beer that gets fermented warmer than a lager, but then cold stored (lagered) until just right. Filtered to beautiful clarity, this one is dark amber in color, with lots of yummy dark fruit and toasted malt characteristics and a slight drying roast finish.

4.9% ABV

German For Light

Munich-style Helles Lager

Listen up Lager Pallys™, Jeff has another liter worthy classic coming out of our O’side spot that you’ll need to come in for, cause this one is draft only. Similar to Bier (our Helles that we’ve made so many times here at GC), but with a different yeast strain and pilsner malt. The result is a touch richer and more full than our normal take. It’s lovely. Fresh baked bread like aromatics and flavor, with a soft roundness on the palate, and just enough hop bitterness to maintain excellent drinkability.

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

Here We Are

A Belgian-Style White Ale w/ California Oranges & Coriander

Using raw wheat, pilsner malt, old fashioned oats, noble hops, and then fermented with a super yummo Belgian yeast. We finished it off with fresh ground coriander and some dried 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.

5.0% ABV

Literhosen

It’s a German-Style Helles Export Bier

Been dreaming about Munich again over here and all those frothy liters of bigger Helles. Drinking one after another. Paired with good conversation and great friends. Does it get any better than that? Here’s our best attempt at replicating those German beer garden crushers, using all the right ingredients and processes that we know of to make it as authentic as possible. It’s what us brewers call a SMASH Beer (single malt and single hop beer) using only Pilsner malt from Bamberg and hops from the Mittelfru region. Medium-bodied, pale in color, with a flavor profile of mmmmmmmmmh, yummo, and ahhhhhhhh.

5.8% ABV

Michelada

For Those Who Know...

Oh...you came here looking for a description? So sorry Pally...you've just gotta know, ya know? Kidding! Our Michi Mix is crafted from scratch in house and served with one of our yummo light beers over ice & rimmed with secret blend of chili salt.

3.9% ABV

Nectaron?! In This Economy?!

A Hoppy Pils w/ 100% Nectaron Hops

With the absolute legend Dr Ron coming into town from New Zealand, we wanted to make something that he could sip on while teaching us all about his life’s work in creating our favorite Southern Hemisphere hops. Using Brent’s hops from @‌machopsnz , this West Coast Pils is saturated with Nectaron from whirlpool to dry hop, and it hits with a wide range of characteristics. Flavor profile? Think the freshest and fruitiest cannabis, new tennis balls, orange zest, and dry riesling.

5.4% ABV

Smooth Is Fast

West Coast Pils w/ Nelson & Citra

Using Nelson during active fermentation, and then sprinkling in our Citra after, this joint hits with flavors/aromatic profile of cucumber spa water, kumquat, cherry blossoms, and watermelon.

5.6% ABV

Second Hand Embarrassment

Collab w/ @‌balterbrewers // A Clear IPA w/ Scotty's Favorite Hops: Mosaic, Manilita, & Riwaka

Bringing your favorite Aussie in for a brew day is kind of like that one book “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie”… you give that man an inch and he takes a mile! The next thing you know he’s grabbing the only box of Manalita (a brand new hop varietal from our pals at @‌freestylehops ) to use in the dry hop, along with his own blend of his favorite hops. You gotta give it to Scotty though, cause this beer came out so good! Dude is a legend. Tasting notes? Kern’s Mango Nectar, Cactus Cooler, Strawberry Nesquik, the zestiest citrus, the most tropical fruit, and the best of times. It’s one of my favorite IPA’s we’ve done this year. Shhhhh. Just don’t tell Scotty.

6.3% ABV

Better Late Than Deader

West Coast IPA w/ HBC 586, Ekuanot, & Rakau

Switched out the hops on our Ain’t Getting Any Deader recipe, and hit this one with a yummo blend of American and New Zealand grown hops. The result? Light in color, super lean, lovingly resinous, and hitting with a flavor combo of strawberry shortcake, mango Hi-Chew, and blood oranges.

7.0% ABV

'Member Rakau?

West Coast IPA w/ Mosaic & Rakau

Do you ‘member when IPA was clear? When you didn’t have to ask if it had all those fluffy little clouds in it? Well, living in the past isn’t always good, but this beer is! this beer is that beer, but modernized with the most legit Mosaic from @‌colemanag and Rakau from @‌freestylehops . Tasting notes? Think ruby red grapefruit, kiwi, the devil’s lettuce, and blueberries.

7.0% ABV

Peacharine! (It’s What We Like Here)

West Coast IPA w/ 100% Peacharine Hops

When your pals at @freestylehops send a brand new experimental hop varietal your way, you give it a try! This New Zealand grown hop gets its name from the incredible mix of Peach and Tangerine aroma/flavor that it showcases. Flavor profile? Fresh peaches, tangerine zest, and matcha tea. Pairs well with hot days and cool nights.

7.2% ABV

They Have A Name (but can't tell us yet)

A DDH West Coast DIPA w/ HBC 586 & HBC 586 Cryo

We’ve been enjoying the absolutely incredible experimental hop varietal HBC 586 for quite some time here at our brewery, but we’re a bit tired of having to say some random number or then to even explain what it means! We hear our good pals over at @‌yakimachief have a name for this hop finally, but they can’t tell us yet. So here’s an insanely aromatic DIPA, double dry hopped for full intensity, with all the bright fruit you could hope for from these Washington grown hops. Tasting notes? Think Candied Orange Slices, Hawaiian Fruit Punch, and Captain Crunch Oops All Red Berries. The fruit on this one is so special and can be described in so many different ways. Let us know what you think!

8.7% ABV

St. Pally's Day

Irish-Style Dry Stout

Brewed out of our new spot in Oceanside, we love this beer for its jet black color, its beige foam, and for its flavor profile of milk chocolate and lightly sweetened columbian coffee. The beer is creamy on the palate and finishes with a touch of roastiness.

5.1% ABV

Uncle Dave's Fave

English Bitter on Nitro. Brewed w/ Our Bud Dave Naylor

One of our favorite regulars, Dave Naylor, is an avid Homebrewer that brings in some of our favorite homebrews to share with all of us. He tends to make a lot of English-style beers that are great on cask, so we worked together on this English Classic that uses all the lovely @simpsonsmalt Maris Otter and Crystal Malts, along with whole leaf Strata from our pals at @indiehops . Dave says…. "What an awesome opportunity for me, after a recent trip to Wales ??????? where I grew up! Well here it is: “Dave’s Fave” Best Bitter! The National drink of England & Wales ???????! A malt-forward, balanced and flavorful, yet refreshing session beer. Goes well with fish and chips, meat pies, and gloomy wet weather! Have 2 or 3 or more, cause it’s “ a bloody good pint “ - Dave Naylor. aka @ladave66

4.4% ABV

Sleepin' In

Hazy IPA w/ Citra, Mosaic & Strata

Don’t hit the snooze alarm, cause you're not gonna want to sleep on this one!! Sorry, that was bad. Anyway. The body is pretty full, but then gets cleaned up by the super smooth bitterness from that big dry hop with the hops above and then hits with flavors of fresh strawberries, rainbow sherbet, kumquat, and a little dab of thai basil.

7.2% ABV

Movies Are the New Books

DDH Hazy DIPA w/ Citra & HBC 1019

Nothing better than sitting back and relaxing, the old fashioned way, with a movie after the kids go down for the night, ya know? Sit in your favorite chair. Grab a can of something big and juicy maybe? Well, that’s probably too specific, but either way, we’ve got you got you covered here! With this one, we’ve gone big on the Citra and then light on this new experimental hop called HBC 1019. The result is wonderfully full bodied, juicy, and hits with hoppy layers of mango sorbet, caramelized banana, and starbursts. Stoked on this one!

8.6% ABV

Just One Thing...Citra

DDH Hazy DIPA w/ 100% Citra

It’s our little series of beers highlighting the extremes of one single hop variety, double dry hopped to overload the senses with all of what it is. Our hand-selected lot of Citra from Yakima Valley hits with a flavor profile of Orange Sherbet, Dole Whip soft serve, fresh grand daddy purple, mandarin zest and those vanilla frosting vibes that I can’t get enough of.

8.7% ABV

Just Two Things...Citra & Strata

DDH Hazy DIPA w/ Citra & Strata

One in a series of beers highlighting how the combination of two hop varieties can create something extra special together. Our hand selected Citra & Strata take center stage in a way that work out so well together, that we kinda just sat around and kept tasting and smelling, and tasting and smelling, and tasting and smelling. Milky pale yellow in color, with layers of pineapple juice, strawberry smoothie, white frosting, orange marmalade, raspberry leaves, and with the devil’s lettuce in the long, lingering finish.

8.7% ABV

Endless Wallet

TDH Hazy TIPA w/ Citra & HBC 586 Cryo

This thing is a crazy triple dry hopped triple IPA with some of our favoritist hops. That color and near glow, is the result of a freak’n 9 lb per bbl dry hop, some old fashioned oats, and the palest malts. Citra takes the cake, and 586 is like the frosting or maybe even the sprinkles. Tasting notes? Think Mango Sorbet, Skittles, and Fanta.

10.2% ABV

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!

BEERS BY OUR FRIENDS!

Bagby Beer // Back Garden Pale Ale

English-Style Pale Ale

This English inspired ale conjures up images of spending summers hanging out in what the Brits refer to as their “back gardens”. This beer could be considered an English Bitter and maybe even Pale so the name holds true however you categorize it. The English hop character is derived mostly from Target hops to provide a slightly firm bitterness in the middle. The malt profile is biscuity, nutty, cracker like flavor.
