– Pizza Port Brewing / Stone Brewing BFF

    (Available in 6pk Cans & on Draft)

– Pale Ale

ABV: 6.2%  

The beer is a modern take on an English Pale Ale. Maris Otter barley gives the beer a rich, but clean, malt background. London III yeast with New Zealand, American, and English hops provide flavors of passion fruit, oro blanco grapefruit, and earthy tangerine peel

 

 

 

 

 

– Lagunitas Cherry Jane

    (Available in 6pk Bottles & on Draft)

– Sour Ale

ABV: 5.5%    – IBU: 9

This sweet tart sour ale is full of Turkish Delight cherries, giving it a puckered up punch of cherry charm, then it’s fermented with some Brettanomyces for that extra funky funk. We love you, Cherry Jane. Do ya?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

– Lagunitas Born Again Yesterday

    (Available on Draft)

– Pale Ale

ABV: 7%    – IBU: HIGH

It’s the Holy Grail pursuit of brewing in hoppy beer making: year-round wet-hop flavor. Hops are good, fresh hops are better, wet hops are the best. We say ‘wet hops’ because they have not been dried after harvest. We say ‘better’ because they possess the fullest expression of hop flavor; vine-fresh. But as with another herbaceous favorite of ours, they must be quickly dried to prevent mold and spoilage. That drying process is done delicately but something is always lost in translation. Other good brewers have taken up the quest. The results have varied. Ours is a homegrown process of time dilation for the delicate hop cone that the flower doesn’t even perceive and so delivers its still newborn self to our kettle months and months after its birth. Questing has no end and we are still tweaking our process but we hope you find this mid-summer anachronism to be as satisfying as we do. If you dig it, enjoy it. We’ll make more! MORE ABOUT THE FREAKIN’ WET HOPS: To figure out this brand new wet hop preservation process, we had to forget everything that we already knew about how hops are processed and preserved. We tried 5 or 6 different things to try and achieve this process (some of which failed miserably), then we discovered a relatively simple process that deliberately did all the things that the textbooks told us not to do. This new proprietary process involves a lot of time and money, and even more thinking about hops and freshness in new ways. From all of this, we found a brand-spankin’-new way to preserve the hops, fresh from the Yakima Valley trellises, first born during harvest season into the Born Yesterday last fall, and reborn into this scary new next step, the Born Again Yesterday Pale Ale, six months later, to the beer in your hands today.

 

 

– Lagunitas Super Cluster

    (Available in 12pk Bottles)

– IPA

ABV: 8%    – IBU: 60

This out-of-this-world ale is a galactic blast from the glass, a Citrus supernova in the sky, jettisoning lupulin lusciousness through the cosmos and cross the universe of your palate. Enter its bitter orbit and we’ll all float on, okay? Cheers!

 

 

 

 

 

 

– Lagunitas Citrusinesis

    (Available on Draft)

– Pale Ale

ABV: 7.7%    – IBU: 49

We took some fresh Sanguinello Blood oranges, juiced ’em, concentrated that juice (without heat) and threw it into a wheatier version of our DogTown Pale Ale. The end result? A refreshingly hopped pale-ish ale with a huge citrus burst!

 

 

 

 

 

 

– Lagunitas Hop Stoopid

    (Available on Draft)

ABV: 8%    – IBU: 102

The beer with a guarantee built right into the name, this one is destined to blast through the flavors from the night before. Massively dry-hopped for your aromatic pleasure.

    (Available on Draft)

– IPA

ABV: 8.7%    – IBU: 72.51

This is my space. I write the words here. I am the ghost in the machine. These words are the voice of the beer you have been drinking, or will soon drink. The words are profane, pedestrian, vulgar. These words are not refreshing, they are not magical like the beer they colorfully wrap. You and I have only words and these words are my nearly desperate attempt to be understood. The beer beneath me is never desperate, it is nearly sacred. It is a promise. It knows that it is a dream of running in grass, a dream of music in the sky, a bridge to another shore. It is a communion wafer on your tongue and you take it into your body in the same hopeful transcendent pursuit of solace and community with the eternal. Of course, it isn’t any of those things unless you want it to be so, but neither is the communion wafer. These words are all I have, but the work of the guadrillion yeast cells acting in their own eternal congress and the message that they have for you, shepherded by a handful of brewers to you in this form is a thing that you now have, in your mind, in your hand and soon, once again, in your mind. The time for words is ending now…Call us sometime and share some words! 707.769.4495 Cheers!

 

 


– Sierra Nevada Six Rights IPA

    (Available on Draft)

– Double IPA

ABV: 7.8%    

Inspired by the “Six Rights” philosophy – the right thing for the right people – we made the “right” beer for the job. This double IPA has something for all IPA lovers: big hop flavor, lively bitterness, complex fruit-forward hop notes, and just enough malt backbone for a pinpoint balance.
