Inspired by traditional English ESBs, our Calico Amber Ale is as American as it could be. A rich complexity comes from four types of maltâ€”but it's those distinct American hops that offer a crisp bitterness and unique floral aroma.
To round out our traditional-English-yet-very-American Amber Ale, we use a proprietary yeast to develop a fruity, Madeira-like richness. Try one today, and find out what a gold medal beer tastes like!

This is the namesake for one of our brewer's favorite shop dogs. 'Ol Bender is a hound that is relaxed and calm in nature but can also pack a powerful wallop if your not careful. This beer has a biscuity nose...but that makes sense, as 'Ol Bender loves dog biscuits as a treat too. Hoist one for the hound!
As a special treat for lovers of big, complex stouts, Boulevard Brewing Company offers the 2015 Imperial Stout "X" Series. The "X" factor stands for key ingredients added to each of several different releases planned throughout the year. Inspired by the Aztec beverage xocoatl, this edition includes ancho and pasilla negro chiles, cinnamon, and cacao nibs, lending it a richly complex, spicy character.
The coffee lover's consummate beer. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and imported chocolates, and Sumatra and Kona coffee, this stout has an intense fresh-roasted java nose topped with a frothy, cinnamon-colored head that goes forever.
Produced in the tradition of 18th Century English brewers who supplied the court of Russia's Catherine the Great, Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout seems to develop a cult following wherever it goes. It's a rich, intense brew with big complex flavors and a warming finish.
An American hop assault for all the ambivalent warriors who get the girl in the end. â€œLook, I ain't in this for your revolution, and I'm not in it for you, Princess.â€ This iconic ale features a blend of four hop varieties which creates a crisp bitterness and imparts massive floral and citrus aromas.
Light golden body, grapefruit, citrus nose, crisp bitter finish. Made with 2 row and wheat malt. American ale yeast. 100% Galaxy hops. 2lbs per barrel.

This ale's sweet, malty undertones balance the hop character with a finish that never turns too bitter.
A hopped up IPA that always maintains the same consistent grain bill. However, we craft our IPA with a new twist each time it is expertly brewed!
As we know, hop varietals are growing rapidly and we are always attempting to take advantage of them. Our "Craft'd" IPA will always change based on which hops we want to use at the time. Brewer David loves the opportunity to experiment with the various versions! This current batch is Cascade hopped and Chinook dry hopped
Whenever Craft'd is on, make sure you give it a try!
A tempest on the tongue, or a moment of pure hop bliss? Brewed with a dazzling blend of American hops and Scottish malt, this crimson-hued ale delivers waves of citrus, pine and caramel-toffee. For those who favor flavor, Furious has the hop-fire your taste buds have been screeching for.
tâ€™s Pretty Awesome. A San Diego classic, AleSmith IPA showcases the versatility of American hops. Aromas of grapefruit and tangerine lead into an abundance of fresh pine and tropical fruit notes followed by a crisp, resinous bitterness. The complex hop profile is supported by a firm malt presence to create an incredibly flavorful and well-balanced IPA.
Named after Coronado Island, our original India Pale Ale is a liquid expression of hometown pride. Cascade, Chinook, and Columbus hops combine to provide an explosive burst of piney bitterness and lucioius notes of apricot, grapefruit, and mango that are sure to envoke imagery of swinging palms and sun-kissed shores.
Crystal and Chinook full-hopped character, dark orange hued in color, light on the nose but has a nice spicy/sweet finish. Caramel sweet maltiness with peppery spiciness from the rye. This is the beer that makes "Lincoln-Way" famous!
This West Coast IPA is like that sweet little Nordic trail off the main trail of Meissner - it takes the high road. Using Pilsner base malt, it is light on malt but not hops. With a hop bill consisting of Amarillo, Centennial, Northern Brewer, and experimental hop X, we packed in the pine along with the citrus notes we love.
Because of the Belgian yeast from Brouwerij La Chouffe, this beer has sweet, malty nose to it. The front consists of a lot of clove and banana as most traditional Belgian beers do, but, we dry hopped this with Falconerâ€™s Flight hops so the finish will kick you in the mouth with a big, bitter, citrus foot.
The Sculpin IPA is a testament to our humble beginnings as Home Brew Mart. Founded in 1992, the Mart continues to be a catalyst for the San Diego brewing scene, setting the trend for handcrafted ales. Inspired by our customers, employees and brewers, the Sculpin IPA is bright with aromas of apricot, peach, mango and lemon. Its lighter body also brings out the crispness of the hops. This delicious Ballast Point Ale took a Bronze Medal at the 2007 Great American Beer Festival in the Pro Am category. The Sculpin fish has poisonous spikes on its fins that can give a strong sting. Ironically, the meat from a Sculpin is considered some of the most tasty. Something that has a sting but tastes great, sounds like a Ballast Point India Pale Ale.
While our beers are many and diverse, yet unified by overarching boldness, India pale ales are our undeniable bread and butter. Weâ€™ve brewed many over the past 18 years, from double-down bitter bombs to piney session sippers. Whether itâ€™s big IBUs or a precise ABV, thereâ€™s usually a target weâ€™re shooting for. The same is true of this, our latest IPA, but we gave zero thought to any acronyms. This one was all about packing as much unique and, you guessed it, delicious flavor into a glass as humanly possible, regardless of oomph or octane. This intensely citrusy, beautifully bitter beer is worthy of the simple-yet-lordly title of Stone Delicious IPA. Lemondrop and El Dorado hops combine to bring on a magnificent lemon candy-like flavor thatâ€™s balanced by hop spice. Itâ€™s unlike anything weâ€™ve tasted in nearly two decades of IPA experimentation, and another lupulin-laced creation weâ€™re excited to introduce to hopheads everywhere.
We have been serving Dark Matter Chocolate City Iced Coffee on tap at Tribes for a long time. We love it. Our guests love it. We love our IPA. Our guests love our IPA. Soooo..just like a peanut butter cup, we married the two flavors together for one outstanding beverage. Someone put coffee in my beer! Hey, someone but beer in my coffee! However you look at it your bound to love it.
Bell's Two Hearted Ale is defined by its intense hop aroma and malt balance. Hopped exclusively with the Centennial hop varietal from the Pacific Northwest, massive additions in the kettle and again in the fermenter lend their characteristic grapefruit and pine resin aromas. A significant malt body balances this hop presence; together with the signature fruity aromas of Bell's house yeast, this leads to a remarkably drinkable American-style India Pale Ale.
Light orange pour with a small but dense white head. Aromas of toasted grains, caramel and light hops. Caramel, toasted bread, grass and dusty malts in the flavor.
As a brewery, we havenâ€™t been brewing lagers for a while. This or that has kept us distanced from that world, but weâ€™re dipping back in with a release thatâ€™s coming to you on Friday 10/28. You can expect a beer thatâ€™s much like an Octoberfest, with a sturdy malt frame, but cloaked under the cover of Octoberâ€™s timely neighbor, November. Come see us and take a drive through Lager Town
Citrus aroma with light amber colour. Enjoyable hop-forward balance with full body and clean bitter finish.
A west coast Pale Ale chock-full of dank, aromatic hops. This one's a screamer, horde it.
This Fresh Hop Pale Ale is all about celebrating the hop harvest in the fall. Fresh picked hops have to be added to the brew immediately and in abundance. Roughly 680 pounds of Crystal hops from Doug Weathers' farm outside Salem, Oregon will be added to each 120 barrel batch in addition to some dry kilned whole flower hops. That adds up to approximately 5.7 pounds of hops per barrel brewed. Another deliciously interesting beer in our Bond Street Series.
In 2006 we thought it would be fun to document the trip so Tim Cash from FARfromEARTH films hopped on board with his camera in hand
Part of the Bond Street Series. This Fresh Hop Pale Ale is all about celebrating the hop harvest in the fall. Fresh picked hops have to be added to the brew immediately and in abundance.

Pony is new to the scene, but we welcome this pilsner lager into the fold like an old friend. Pony is a crisp, clean pilsner you can saddle on up to the bar and order with a confident, rangy thunder. Get on yer stoop or prepare for the trek, thereâ€™s a Pony in every pint.
The refreshing tartness in this divine, bright golden-colored ale gives way to earthy undertones and hints of citrus followed by a slight sea salt-like dryness and tangy, effervescent finish.
Le Terroir is a french term meaning â€œof the earthâ€. Used to reference the environmental conditions that affect the brew, we like to think about the terroir of our foeders. These wooden barrels age our sour beer in varying temperatures, humidity, and vibrations. The terroir of New Belgium, so to speak. Add in another variable by dry-hopping with peachy, mango-like Amarillo hops, and we created a beer that changes every time we brew it.
Pasteurised. Usually called Draught; sometimes called Cold or Extra Cold - same beer, but served colder.
Launched in 1961.
Ingredients: Pale ale malt, about 25 to 30% flaked barley, and about 10% roasted barley, with no other grains or sugars; several hop varieties, mainly Goldings (pellets and isomerized extract); a flocculent head-forming ale yeast.
Our interpretation of a traditional Belgian wheat beer, Allagash White is unique and truly refreshing.

Our spiced California style Wit is both refreshing and complex. Brewed with wheat, coriander, California orange peel and local orange blossom honey. From the first sip to the last youâ€™ll find subtle flavors of bread, spice, citrus and a thirst quenching orange honey finish.
Lynnbrook, named after our founderâ€™s family farm, is a wild Berliner-Style Weisse with raspberries added, resulting in a very refreshing beer presenting with fuchsia color and an aroma reminiscent of picking tart red raspberries growing next to an old, abandoned barn, with the raspberry-lemon aroma giving way to hints of brie and barnyard funkiness. The flavor is absent of any hops or bitterness and instead has initial impression of subtle lemon and yogurt supported by tart, fresh raspberries and underlying lactic sourness. The beerâ€™s dry finish helps cut through some sweetness from the fruit.
A stout-ish porter with a touch of porter-ish stout. Accepting the fact that we live in confusing times, Greenbush offers up itâ€™s own "ball of confusion," with Distorter - a robust porter blurring the lines between a porter and a stout. Have a bottle or get therapy.

This fruity, estery double altbier is brewed in the traditional-ish style of the Doppelsticke, which is the widely known secret Germanic-esque strong ale. Like itâ€™s California Common counterpart, we fermented this ale at a lower temperature to pull out the sulphur-y bite from the yeast, then dry-hopped it with some dank, Sticky hops, including some brand-spankinâ€™-new Enigma hops from the great Down Under!
Weâ€™re excited to announce that weâ€™re going to release Spectra Trifecta, brewed in the traditional Kolsch style, this September. Proceeds from the sale of this new beer will benefit ArtPrize, the worldâ€™s largest art competition that takes place annually in Grand Rapids, Mich.
Our Oktoberfest Lager was brewed as tribute to one of out most cherished recipes using old world German techniques and ingredients. A single decoction mash unleashes the complexity and depth of the Vienna, Munich, and Caramel malts that create this beerâ€™s distinct aroma and flavor. German noble hops balance this rich and malty lager with a delicate herbal and spicy bouquet of aromas. Prost!
A traditional Oktoberfest bier from Surly? Nein! If you want one of those, grab your passport and head over to Munchen (bring us back some pretzels.) SurlyFest is brewed with three different types of Rye and a single variety of American Hops. Malted Rye, Flaked Rye, and Crystal Rye impart a distinctive biscuit flavor to the lush Vienna Malt body, and dry-hopping with Sterling Hops adds bright, floral hop aromas. A single hop, dry-hopped, rye lager bier? Ja!
Note: 2006 version brewed with Summit hops.
Oskar Blues' newest beer is an uncompromising, small-batch version of the beer that made Pilsen, Czech Republic famous. Unlike mass market "pilsners" diluted with corn & rice, Mama's is built with 100% pale malt, German specialty malts, and Bavarian hops. While it's rich with Czeched-out flavor, its gentle hopping (35 IBUs) and low ABV (just 5.3%) make it a luxurious but low-dose (by Oskar Blues standards) refresher.
Tastes just like a root beer soda - but a lot stronger!
Pumking is an ode to PÃºca, a creature of Celtic folklore, who is both feared and respected by those who believe in it. PÃºca is said to waylay travelers throughout the night, tossing them on its back, and providing them the ride of their lives, from whichthey return forever changed!

Pour Pumking into a goblet and allow it's alluring spirit to overflow. As spicy aromas present themselves, let its deep copper color entrance you as your journey into this mystical brew has just begun. As the first drops touch your tongue a magical spell will bewitch your taste buds making it difficult to escape. This beer is brewed with pagan spirit yet should be enjoyed responsibly.
This exquisite liquid patchwork of more than a dozen hops is a devastatingly fresh double IPA. Freshness is a key component of many beers â€“ especially big, hoppy IPAs â€“ but we've taken it further, a lot further, with this one. We brewed this IPA specifically NOT to last. We've gone to extensive lengths to ensure you get your hands on this beer within an extraordinarily short window, and we've sent a very clear message in the name of the beer itself that there is no better time than right NOW to enjoy this IPA!
You have in your hands a devastatingly fresh double IPA. While freshness is a key component of many beers â€“ especially big, citrusy, floral IPAs â€“ weâ€™ve taken it further, a lot further, in this IPA. You see, we specifically brewed it NOT to last. Weâ€™ve not only gone to extensive lengths to ensure that youâ€™re getting this beer in your hands within an extraordinarily short window, we made sure that the Enjoy By date isnâ€™t randomly etched in tiny text somewhere on the label, to be overlooked by all but the most attentive of retailers and consumers. Instead, weâ€™ve sent a clear message with the name of the beer itself that there is no better time than right now to enjoy this IPA.
Maharaja is derived from the sanskrit words mahat, - "great" and rajan - "king". Much like its namesake, this imperial IPA is regal, intense and mighty. With hops and malts as his servants, he rules both with a heavy hand. The Maharaja flaunts his authority over a deranged amount of hops: tangy, vibrant and pungent along with an insane amount of malted barley - fashioning a dark amber hue and exquisite malt essence. This newest Avery Dictator completes the "Dictator Series" joining the likes of The Kaiser & The Czar. Be aware that The Maharaja is a limited release only available for the summer. Welcome to his kingdom!
And as Stone Ruination IPA turns 10, we thought weâ€™d make ourselves a nice little birthday present to celebrate. But what kind of selfish jerks would we be if we didnâ€™t share?! Behold, the Stone Ruination Tenth Anniversary IPA. (Clever name, eh? Thatâ€™s why us folks in the Marketing Dept. get the big bucks!) Itâ€™s an amped-up version of Stone Ruination IPA, with a bit more malt to bring the abv up from 7.7% to 10.8%, and a very heavy dose of hops. â€œClassicâ€ Ruination uses 2.5 pounds of hops per barrelâ€“which is more than double the amount we use in any other of our core beersâ€“but for Stone Ruination Tenth Anniversary IPA, we went double again, using an impressive 5 pounds of hops per barrel, including about a pound each of Citra and Centennial in the dry hop. (Hell. Yes.)
This double IPA will make you want to grow a mullet (if you donâ€™t already have one) and go to war (if yourâ€™re not already).
This West Coast-Style India Pale Ale is extravagantly hopped, full flavored, medium bodied and copper colored. A menagerie of hops is combined throughout the brewing process to impart specific characteristics. Hops used include Simcoe for a unique fruitiness and grapefruit zest, Columbus for strong hop pungency, Centennial for pine and citrus notes, and Cascade for floral aroma.
This beer is intended to be our interpretation, paying homage, to the true west coast style. Expect big, bold and bracing bitterness with tropical fruit notes of mango and grapefruit. Taste the bold and resinous flavor from massive dry hopping. But you better be careful 'cause this brew will take you from 0-100 real fast!

Brewed with pumpkins and graham crackers in the mash, then spiced with cinnamon, ginger and vanilla, this auburn colored ale bursts with pumpkin pie flavors. Milk sugar provides a creamy, smooth, mouthfeel, and brown sugar compliments the pie character in the finish. Enjoy this beer throughout the Fall and holiday season!
A striking, robust porter full of warmth and chocolate malt. Eugene is a robust porter named after Eugene V. Debs, an American union leader and activist who led the Pullman Railroad strike in 1894. An assortment of Belgian specialty malts form a complex structure of toasted grain and caramel flavors. Dark chocolate malt makes this porter black as night and infuses it with its distinct intense, chocolate essence.
Pours silky black with a creamy tan head. The nose is sweet with strong chocolate and caramel malt presence. No absence of hops gives Founders' robust porter the full flavor you deserve and expect. Cozy like velvet. It's a lover, not a fighter.
A bold Scottish ale with a complex malty body derived from roasted and crystal malts balanced with just the right combination of hops. This ale pours a deep ruby color, has a sweet malty nose with layered caramel and roasted notes and a full body. Robust yet smooth, Robert The Bruce is a malt lover's delight.
