LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT OUR BEERS...

BEERS BY US!

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

Pierre's Paloma

A Paloma-Style Hard Seltzer

6.0% ABV

The Language of Lager

A 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

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

Flying South

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

7yr - DDH West Coast IPA

DDH WCIPA w/ Mosaic, Citra Cryo, HBC 586

6.8% ABV

Peacharine!? In This Economy?!

Hoppy Pils w/ Peacharine

Don’t believe what you hear. Running a business is easy in this economy and sometimes ya got to splurge! Take this fairly new hop from our good good pals at @freestylehops for instance, it’s a perfect candidate to use too much of in a batch of West Coast Pils! Just saturated with the most modern hoppy goodness from every sniff to every sip. Tasting notes? Think about those gummy peach rings, orange candy, and even a mouthfeel of fruit pebbles.

5.4% ABV

7yr West Coast Pils

West Coast Pils w/ Mosaic, HBC 586, Nectaron & Citra Cryo

We’ve been having fun with new school hopped lagers since the beginning of our little brewery, but we feel like we’ve come a long way with them! The combination of Pacific Northwest hops along with one of our favorite New Zealand varietals makes for a beer that is wonderfully intense in hop character, and carries through from sniff to sip. Tasting notes? Orange bang, sweet Mary Jane, and grapefruit zest.

5.4% ABV

Beers With Dad

West Coast Pale Ale w/ Citra, Mosaic & Galaxy

For all those Dads out there that refuse to drink any of these seltzer-milkshake-fruit bomb IPAs, and “whatever the hell else kids are drinking these days”, here’s one for you! What does it taste like? Well, this year’s batch tastes like orange blossoms, grapefruit zest, and the devil’s lettuce.

6.0% ABV

It Just Works

A Cold IPA w/ Mosaic, Ekuanot & Amarillo

Our Cold IPA, that clocked in at a whopping 100 point score on @craftbeerbrew IPA’s reviews, and also won a recent bronze at the World Beer Cup 2024 is back! What the heck is a Cold IPA? Well, for us it’s an IPA mashed with 30% rice to help lighten up the body and color and then fermented with lager yeast. On the palate, this thing is very much like our clear and bitter California IPAs, and we really dig it! The color is very pale, with a firm bitterness, and a sticky resin quality that is all fresh douglas fir, and super hoppy aromatics of blueberry muffins and strawberries.

7.0% ABV

The Mystifier

Cold IPA w/ Mosaic, HBC 586 & Citra Incognito

Confused about the whole Cold IPA thing? Well, it’s a rice IPA, fermented with lager yeast at warmer temps, but still has the ol’ I.P.A. acronym, instead of the IPL (India Pale Lager) one. Oregon and Washington grown hops combine with a lean malt and rice bill to create something that smells like ripe Maui Wowee, grapefruit oil, and Orange Mamba.

7.2% 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

Radiant Beauty

West Coast IPA w/ Citra, Mosaic & Simcoe

Our West Coast IPA that celebrates the love that we have for our beloved mascot, Cheeky! Layered with the holy trinity of hops; Citra, Mosaic, and Simcoe for a radiantly clear IPA. We’ve been lucky enough to win a Silver at the 2018 World Beer Cup and a Silver at the 2019 Great American Beer Festival for this one.

6.7% ABV

7yr - DDH West Coast IPA

DDH WCIPA w/ Mosaic, Citra Cryo, HBC 586

6.8% ABV

DDH Radiant'r

DDH WCIPA w/ Citra, Mosaic, & Nelson

We took our Radiant Beauty and hit it with this crazy Nelson Sauvin hop liquid from our pals at @‌abstraxhops . They’re doing some pretty ground breaking work over there using an extraction technique that creates liquid hops that can then be dosed in after fermentation to create even more rad hop character for us all to enjoy.

6.8% 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

False Memories

West Coast IPA w/ Citra, Mosaic & HBC 586

This one was awarded a Silver Medal in the West Coast IPA category at the recent World Beer Cup 2024 beer competition! Its got a lean body, a snappy bitterness, a dab of hoppy resin in the linger, and all the hoppy aromatics we need!! Well…that, and a good pally to enjoy it with! Flavor profile? Think Ruby Red grapefruit, navel oranges, and the Devil’s Lettuce in the linger.

7.0% ABV

Excessive Laughter

Collab w/ @nzhopsltd DDH West Coast DIPA w/ Nelson Cryo, Riwaka & Nectaron

It’s not everyday that Dr Ron (a mad scientist of hop breeding genius that has created 16 different New Zealand Hop varietals including Nelson, Riwaka, Nectaron and many more within the 40 years of his career), Devin (of @‌nzhops ), and Brent (5th generation hop farmer and owner of @‌machops ) come for a visit and a brew day here at Green Cheek. We spent the day smelling hops, talking hops, bbq’n, and just trying to soak up as much wisdom from these legends as possible! Tasting notes? That good ol’ NZ funk (that we often describe as gooseberry), yuzu, lychee, and a dab of the devli’s lettuce.

8.5% ABV

Lost In My Kaleidoscope

DDH Hazy IPA w/ Citra, Motueka, Riwaka & Peacharine

Get yourself lost in all of the colors of flavor that comes through in this can. Milky yellow and wonderfully opaque, this one got power housed with Citra, and some of the best New Zealand heavy hitters all you little juice Pallys™️ could ask for. Tasting notes? Watermelon Agua Fresca, passion fruit sorbet, Strawberry Surf Rider, purple, orange, yellow, red…..

7.0% ABV

7yr - DDH Hazy DIPA

DDH Hazy DIPA w/ Citra & Riwaka

This is another beer style that we’ve been making since opening in 2017, and we’re super proud of where it’s at these days! This batch is no different, with all the yellow milk haze, BIG hop aromatics, and just the right amount of sweetness on the palate to work with the insane amount of hops used in making this. Tasting notes? Think strawberry shortcake, passionfruit sorbet, and pineapple puree.

8.5% ABV

Dads In Cashmere

Collab w/ @‌otherhalfnyc // TDH Hazy DIPA w/ Citra & Cashmere, 9.1% abv

If you remember Dad’s In Plaid, we’ve moved on from plaid this year, and instead got our Dad’s all dolled up in Cashmere for Father’s Day!!! Not only is it a super soft wool used in sweaters, Cashmere is also a lovely hop that works oh so well with Citra. We went heavy on the Citra, and light on the Cashmere, and built this thing to be as good as it gets. Tasting notes? Think perfectly behaved kids, longer naps, shoes with extra comfort, everyone going to the bathroom for once before the road trip starts gosh darn’t, long leisurely Home Depot visits, everyone actually laughing at your jokes, useless facts, just resting your eyes, a well manicured yard, and beating the traffic.

9.1% ABV

Layers of Notes

DDH Hazy TIPA w/ Citra & Strata

Smell, taste, & repeat. Take a moment to stop and smell the flowers, if you get me, cause this things rips! Just how many notes were there in this delectable sipper? I asked the brew crew and the list goes on and on. Tastes and smells like: orange sherbet, cold pressed green tea, blue sage, white grape juice, vanilla frosting, regret, Christmas tree, pineapple/banana smoothie, ripe honeydew, shire grown long bottom leaf, funnel cake with boysenberry jam, the signature green cheek triple ipa smell, zebra gum, schnozberries, candied grapefruit, cake batter, Dole fruit cup, and super fresh lychee.

10.5% ABV

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

An 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

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

Guava In Berlin

Berliner Weisse w/ Guava

This lil bb got a silver medal recently at the World Beer Cup and so we’re bringing it back! Get all those vacationy vibes locked in with the return of this pink wonder. It's our beloved Berliner-style Weisse with an insane amount of guava added to it during fermentation. This one's tart, dry and tropical, with huge Guava aromatics and flavor.

3.5% ABV

7yr - Smoothie Sour

Smoothie Sour w/ pineapple, matcha, & coconut cream

6.0% ABV

Water Skies V1.0

Our Very Own Hop Water

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!

Trail Pass IPA

Non-Alcoholic Beer - IPA

Grab a Trail Pass and start a new adventure with miles of flavor. Explore the hoppy notes of citrus and pine from Amarillo® and CTZ varieties in non-alcoholic Trail Pass IPA. The silky malt body and clean hop bitterness are just what you’d expect from a world-class Sierra Nevada IPA, yet it’s less than 0.5% ABV. With Trail Pass IPA we captured the iconic citrus and pine explosion that you expect from a Sierra Nevada IPA, all without the alcohol. Hit the trail with the hoppy aromas and let the smooth maltiness wash over your taste buds. It's like a hike through a hop forest. “It meets all of our criteria for what we would consider a craft IPA—not necessarily even a craft non-alcoholic IPA, but a craft IPA,” says James Conery, Innovation Brewmaster at Sierra Nevada. Trail Pass uses traditional brewing methods, not alcohol removal, to create full craft flavor below the 0.5% ABV non-alcoholic threshold.

0.5% ABV

Upside Dawn Golden

Non-Alcoholic Beer - Other
