A well-balanced, medium to full-bodied beer, red in color and very flavorful.
The cornerstone of our Harvest series is the beer that started the modern-day fresh hop ale phenomenon in America, our original Harvest Ale.
Created in 1996, Harvest Ale features Cascade and Centennial hops from the Yakima Valley in Eastern Washington. These hops are harvested and shipped as â€œwetâ€ un-dried hopsâ€”the same day they are pickedâ€”to our brewery in Chico where our brewers eagerly wait to get them into the brew kettle while their oils and resins are still at their peak
Prepare to walk the plank to an Ale of overwhelming proportions. More hops & more malts than any land lubber can handle. After this experience...your tongue will be buckled. The I.B.U.â€™s (International Bitterness Units) are off the scale on this ale. Be forewarned, those with a timid palate, this is not a wee beer! Handcrafted in small batches for those sailing the seas in search of great ales.
Our take on an American amber ale. Complex malt bill delivers notes of dark raisin, chocolate and biscuit. Copious additions of American hops yield notes of pine and citrus.
This is an Imperial Blonde Ale or Blonde Barley Wine. It has the lightest color of the beers in our program but really carries a lot of interesting barrel character: vanilla, light char and amazing lavender honey notes. There is a rich boozy honey liqueur character and loads of smooth sweet toasted malt. The El Dorado hops dance in the back ground and do not play a dominant role in the flavor profile. This beer gets better and better the longer it is in barrel.
Very limited draft availability.
Every batch of Wild One begins not as a single beer, but as dozens of distinct batches fermented in wooden barrels, each with its own unique combination of wild yeasts & other microorganisms. After several months, the brewers then sample each of the barrels and blend to taste, selecting the desired flavor attributes from this array. The result is a refreshing tartness, supporting a heady fragrance of fruit, toasted oak, & vanilla.
Coffee Bender refreshes like an iced-coffee, is aromatic as a bag of whole beans as satisfies like your favorite beer. The Surly brew team has developed a cold extraction process that results in intense coffee aromatics and flavor bringing together two of our favorite beverages. Your only dilemma will be whether to finish your day or start it with a Coffee Bender.
Every year we brew a brown ale to celebrate the holidays. To make each yearâ€™s special, we alter the recipe. This year we wrapped caramel and dark fruit malt flavors inside a creamy toasty brown ale. May your holidays be filled with Festivity.
Our 27th Anniversary Imperial Porter was brewed with Theoâ€™s cocoa nibs, pomegranate molasses and select spices, blended with apricot puree, and then aged in bourbon barrels. The result is a truly exquisite ale with bold chocolate character, inspired flavors of fruit, and just a pinch of spice. The perfect way for us to celebrate our golden birthday with you! Malt: Pale, Wheat, Midnight Wheat, Chocolate, Crystal Hops: Millennium, Cascade, US Tettnang Other: Theo Chocolate Cocoa Nibs, Apricot Puree, Pomegranate Molasses Barrel-Aging: 6 Months in Bourbon (50%)
Two of the worldâ€™s oldest beverages join forces to conquer your palate. Victory at Sea embodies the art of masterful brewing by infusing a velvety Imperial Porter with pure vanilla flavor and specially-selected, hand roasted coffee. The addition of cold brewed coffee to the beer lends a subtle roasted flavor to this robust imperial porter, blending perfectly with rich vanilla and caramel undertones. By uniting two San Diego brewing traditions, Caffe Calabria freshly brewed coffee and Ballast Point beer, we have successfully created an artisanal masterpiece.
This righteously flavorful imperial stout has been a favorite among our fansâ€”and usâ€”since its inception in 2013. In celebration of its third brewing, weâ€™ve upped the barrel-aging quotient for 2015, adding to the mix a version of last yearâ€™s vintage that we aged in bourbon barrels for a year. This whopping, complex stout will cellar beautifullyâ€”if you can wait that long.
Eisner Award-winning comic-book cover artist Dave â€œThe Reverendâ€ Johnson created the fine art for the bottle in exchange for our donation to The Hero Initiative (heroinitiative.org), a charity organization that provides retirement funds for golden-age comic book artists.
"I donâ€™t think these aliens are that bad. Whatâ€™s that you ask? That they donâ€™t like you? That they donâ€™t like me wither? WRONG! I mean maybe weâ€™ve all just been brainwashed by Hollywood alien invasion movies. Has anyone even tried to talk to the? Here, Iâ€™ll go bring them a Pipeworks Mocha Imperial Stout with coffee and rich chocolate. This beer is amazing. No disintegrations." - Jeffâ€™s last words before being encased in chocnite.
Speedway Stoutâ€™s ominous, pitch-black appearance has become a hallmark of this modern-day classic. Chocolate and roasted malts dominate the flavor, supported by notes of dark fruit, toffee, and caramel. A healthy dose of locally-roasted coffee from Ryan Bros. Coffee, Inc. added to each batch brings out the beerâ€™s dark chocolate flavors and enhances its drinkability. Despite its intensity, Speedway Stoutâ€™s fine carbonation and creamy mouthfeel make it very smooth and surprisingly easy to drink. This beer ages very well and will continue to mature for many years to come.
The beer you've been waiting for. Keeps your taste satisfied while keeping your senses sharp. An all-day IPA naturally brewed with a complex array of malts, grains and hops. Balanced for optimal aromatic and a clean finish. The perfect reward for an honest day's work and the ultimate companion to celebrate life's simple pleasures.
Selected as a benchmark for the Beer Judge Certification Program used in all American based beer judging. Centennial IPA has quickly become the IPA of choice. Pour yourself a pint of this complex flavorful ale and bask in the frothy head's floral bouquet. Relish the immense citrus accents, achieved by the abundance of dry hopping. 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!
This mouthwateringly delicious IPA gets its flavor from a heavy helping of citra and mosaic hops. Donâ€™t worry, no fruit was harmed in the making of this beer.
This artisan beer is in celebration of the end of the hop harvest. Tons of fresh, wet hops from Washington state power through this stepped up version of our seasonal IPA
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.
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 IPA is brewed with Centennial, Cascade, Chinook, and Nugget hops, all from our friends at Hop Heads Farms in Hickory Corners, MI.
Hop Head Farms, co-founded by one of our investors, Nunzino Pizza, provides quality Midwest hops to everyone from professional craft brewers to homebrewers.
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.
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.
3 Floyd's flagship beer, Alpha King is a big American pale ale that pours a deep amber with a creamy head. This ale is brewed with Centennial, Cascade, and Warrior hops giving it an intense citrus aroma and a crisp hoppy finish.
A west coast Pale Ale chock-full of dank, aromatic hops. This one's a screamer, horde it.
This seasonal beer is brewed in the Do It Yourself (DIY) spirit along with our friends from Bayfield at the Venture Snowboard Factory.

Light, crisp and refreshing in traditional style
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.
Stella Artois was first brewed as a Christmas beer in leuven. It was named Stella from the star of Christmas, and Artois after Sebastian Artois, founder of the brewery. It's brewed to perfection using the original Stella Artois yeast and the celebrated Saaz hops. It's the optimum premium lager, with it's full flavour and clean crisp taste.
Citrus and beer have made a great pair ever since the first lemon wedge was added to a frosty wheat beer. Here we expand on that tradition, melding a sour blond ale with the intensely aromatic zest of Buddhaâ€™s Hand citrons and the bracing tartness of Yuzu and Blood Oranges from Hamada Farms. Pair harmoniously with sushi or flakey white fish or contrast with earthy roasted root vegetables.
Hoppy and sour might sound like two flavors that wouldnâ€™t play nice together, but there is much more to hops than palate-punching bitterness. If you look beyond the IBUs, hops lend a wide range of flavors and aromas, from fruity grapefruit and papaya notes to delicate florals and hints of good â€˜ole American pine. These characteristics are coaxed out by dry-hopping, adding hops to fermenting beer just before bottling for super fresh and complex aromatics.
Citra Sour is the first in our single-hop sour series. As the name suggests, Citra hops are known for citrusy, fruity flavors and aromas, hinting at grapefruit or even melon and passionfruit. Itâ€™s a popular hop in big West Coast IPAs, but bold enough to shine solo.
These fruity aromas blend harmoniously with our tart, earthy sour blonde ale, creating a beer that both contradicts and compliments itself.
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.
Black in color with roasted flavor and noticeable hop bitterness
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.
A heavy dose of rye breathes new life into this other-worldly strong ale. Supple spice and barley sweetness strike a balance in the young beer before its enlightenment in Heaven Hill Rye Whiskey barrels. Ethereal waves of dark fruit and vanilla ascend from the depths as the elixir warms while the rye character lends a stunningly silky mouthfeel. Perhaps itâ€™s a doorway to an existential awakening, or maybe itâ€™s just a damned fine beer.
Belgo-American Blonde Ale with citrusy, melonesque American hop notes balanced by a light malt sweetness. Belgian yeast adds complex flavors of summer stone fruit and spice with a crisp, dry finish.
The first release in our new experimental series, Allagash Interlude pushes the limits of beer. An innovative brewing process, special fermentations, and French oak barrel aging all contribute to a beer that has remarkable wine-like qualities.
Two yeast strains were used to create this unique 9.5% ABV Belgian style ale. The first, a Belgian farmhouse yeast, establishes the flavor foundations of a classic Belgian-style ale. The second, a house strain of Brettanomyces yeast, brings it to the next level contributing an intriguing myriad of flavors including pear, apricot, graham cracker, and bread crust. Finally, a portion of the Interlude is aged in French Merlot and Sirah oak barrels, which impart a distinctive vinous plum character and a drying, almost tannic finish. Try complementing its audacious character with food pairings such as sausages, salami, smoked meats, and bold cheeses.
True to traditional Belgian-style brewing, we bottle condition the Interlude. Just prior to bottling, a fresh dose of sugar and yeast is added to the â€˜still beer' (at this stage there is no carbonation present). After bottling, the beer is aged in a warm room, where the fresh dose of yeast ferments the sugar and naturally carbonates the beer.
his Belgian style tripel pours a beautiful straw color and has aromas of spice, pepper, and clove phenolics from the Belgian yeast. Just enough hop presence to balance the big malt bill along with a copious addition of Belgian Candi sugar to keep this beer clean and the finish dry.
Wit beer with Passionfruit
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.
Belgian style wheat beer spiced with bitter orange peel and coriander, lightly hopped with Mandarina Bavaria.
Wheat Ale, soured and aged in Bordeaux Oak Barrels.
Alpha Klaus is Alpha King's festive cousin. A big American Christmas Porter brewed with English chocolate malt, Mexican sugar and of course, tons of strange American hops. Cheers! November release.
A beer for the shifting seasons. Days are shorter, skin is hidden and black beers are here. Like fur between your legs, this roasty, silk charmer is your ticket to seasonal embrace.
A specialty brew. Grab it when you see it. 6% ABV.
A light, lovely cider, with a purple blush, that blends heirloom and organic dessert apples with the tart mysteries of organic black currant. Immensely drinkable.
Editorâ€™s note: this is a base cider, then pastorized and sweetened with balckcurrant.
After the harvest, we press our organic apples and allow them to slowly ferment for up to six months. We then carefully hand-fill and label each bottle and let it age for several weeks to properly condition.
There are only two ingredients in our Orchard Gate Gold: Apple Juice and Yeast. No artificial flavors or colors and - of course - no sulfite nor preservatives of any kind.
Traditional English style pale ale. Malt forward but the addition of Chinook and Crystal hops give this brew a discernible, well balanced hop character. This beer is made for drinkers that prefer a slightly more malt forward and balanced approach as opposed to the traditional hop forward American style.
Dry hopped saison with notes of lemon and apricot. This beer is fresh and offers a dry clean finish. The dupont yeast strain gives this beer the classic Belgian flavor profile. Dry hopped with 1 lb of German Saphir hops per barrel gives this saison a unique yet tasty character.
Most breweries have at least one piece of equipment thatâ€™s just a bit persnickity. Here at Boulevard we have fermenter number seven, the black sheep of our cellar family. Ironically, when our brewers were experimenting with variations on a traditional Belgian-style farmhouse ale, the perfect combination of elements came together in that very vessel. You could call it fate, but they called it Tank 7, and so it is. Beginning with a big surge of fruity aromatics and grapefruit-hoppy notes, the flavor of this complex, straw-colored ale tapers off to a peppery, dry finish.
Not another boring summer wheat beer or lemonade shandyâ€”RÃ¼bÃ¦us is Foundersâ€™ way to celebrate the seasonâ€™s warmest months. Optimizing the flavor of fresh raspberries added at multiple stages during fermentation, this stunning berry red masterpiece is the perfect balance of sweet and tart. No question about it, with a hefty malt bill and 5.7% ABV, this beer is 100% Founders.
Made with pilsner and red wheat malts. Hopped and dry hopped with German Tettnange for a total of 1 lb per barrel. Herbal and floral aromas with a clean, crisp mouth feel and slightly sweet finish.
The essence of Christmas is captured in this very bottle. Perfectly blended spices compliment Frosted Frog's rich malt flavors, creating the ultimate Christmas experience. Celebrate the holidays as you savor this very special seasonal offering.
Tastes just like a root beer soda - but a lot stronger!
Each year, when people are starting to unpack their winter clothes and replenish their firewood, our tiny brewery in the coastal redwoods of Northern California makes seasonal preparations of a different kind. As the cold arrives, we release a unique beverage created to add warmth to even the coldest and darkest of winter's days. Winter Solstice Seasonal Ale begins with a very high original gravity to create a hearty and spicy brew with a deep amber hue and a smooth finish. Anderson Valley Brewing Company wishes you the very best for the holiday season and the New Year.
Just like the Evolution replaced the Shovelhead, our Big Twin DIPA is evolving into a killer 8% intensely hopped, bright double IPA with a dry but bitter finish. Hopped with mandarina and mosaic, it is a superbly well balanced brew!
A cousin to our original Clencher, this beer is hopped throughout with Simcoe and Citra, Clencher is loaded with pine and citrus aromas and the body and alcohol to compliment itâ€™s assertive flavors.
A heavy malt foundation includes Crystal malt for sweetness and just enough Midnight Wheat malt to push the color to black. The bitterness is huge, but balanced by malt sweetness and alcohol burn. The hop flavors and aromas range from citrus to floral to pine thanks to a delicious blend of hand-selected Chinook and Centennial hops.
Hop on and enjoy the rye of your life! Our imperial rye IPA is brewed in the name of our road warriors - the sales team that tirelessly hit the streets, traveling from town to town and pub to pub sharing the Green Flash experience. Road Warrior charge full flavor forward. Columbus and Mosaic hops, rich crystal and spicy rye malts pave the way for Mosaic and Amarillo dry hopping to boldly shine through in the finish. Raise a glass to those who never settle!
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 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!
Sneaky Smooth with a Touch of What we Call Wheatly-esque-ish-ness. Crispy Wheat and Pale Malt flavors with a Zippy Hop Finish. A Return of the Brand-Spankin' New Beer From The Summer of 2009.
We pay homage to the American novelist, Eleanor Porter, who introduced â€œPollyannaâ€ to the world way back in 1913. Eleanor is a full-bodied and layered, robust porter brewed with Belgian caramel malts, American chocolate malts, German hops, and English yeast. This beer is heavy on the rich, dark chocolates with lots of caramelized raisins and caramel, but perfectly balanced with a distinct coffee flavor and moderate hop bitterness.
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.
Robust porter with a malty backbone, dark roastiness with a dry finish.
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.
Our Chocolate milk stout pours black as the night sky with aromas of dark chocolate, chocolate malt, and more chocolate. With a frothy tan head and a rich velvety mouthfeel our Chocolate milk stout is a perfect addition to the change of seasons. Brewed with over 3 pounds of cocoa nibs per barrel this beer is a chocolate lovers dream!
A cinfully delectable wine with the sweet flavors of honey, apples, and cinnamon. In each bottle a aspice pack containing cinnamon, hibiscus, chamomile, roasted chicory, orange peel, natural apple flavor, and other spices, enhances the flavor with age. Apple Cin Mead is perfect served hot or blended with your favorite beer or soda.
Honey Wine Fermented with Coco. This sweet and chocolaty wine has a minty chocolate character with lush honey flavor.
Dark red, not clear enough to to see through. Wonderful nose of pomegranate and honey. There is a nice warming the whole way down. Plenty of honey up front and in the finish. The pomegranate plays a nice role and is not the star but is a nice counter to the sweet.
A full bodied stout made with all malted barley and blueberry. Flavors of chocolate, roast malt and light blueberry make up the palate with lots of fruity blueberry aroma.
Our milk stout aged for many moons in Woodford Reserve bourbon barrels.
