Technicolor Visions: Strawberry
This is our take on a "west coast" milkshake IPA. Loaded with Albion strawberries in the whirlpool & fermenter, this aromatic IPA was dry hopped with berry-forward hops Nelson, Strata &Idaho 7. A measured lactose addition keeps it smooth & balanced, but not overly sweet & cloying. The finish has a nice stickiness, which is reminiscent of strawberry seeds & leaves. A great summer sipper. CONTAINS LACTOSE
This pretty pale ale features Riwaka, Motueka and New Zealand Cascade hops in both the kettle and fermenter, and rolled oats in the mash for a smooth delivery. Delicate cotton candy and lime citrus notes in the aroma, and a soft finish make this our brewers' current favorite.
It’s difficult to imagine a better combination of two hops than Nelson and Mosaic. We already know Mosaic plays well with so many other hops but when you infuse a beer with Mosaic’s tropical dankness and Nelson’s totally different tropical dankness you create an intense array of indica dominant headiness. Squeeze that all into a crushable pale ale and you may have what we consider a perfect beer without the couch lock.
Coupe de Ville
Brewed with California grown Feldblume Malt and Malted Oats from Admiral Maltings in Alameda, Coupe de Ville IPA was firmly kettle and dry hopped with Comet, Nelson Sauvin, and Simcoe. This IPA features a soft mouthfeel and dry finish, with aromas of green lemonpeel, soft evergreen, and a touch of wafting diesel.
This wheat-laden Hefeweizen was fermented cool and dry hopped with two select lots of Australian Galaxy to complement the natural banana esters from the yeast. The result is a super refreshing, silky soft, summer crusher that reminds us of strawberry banana daiquiris and tiny umbrellas.
This dry crushable beer was brewed with jasmine rice and kettle-hopped with German Tettnanger, Saaz and Tradition hops. Slowly fermented, cold-conditioned, and naturally carbonated for super refreshment. Perfect for warm bay days or hot summer nights.
Farmer Direct: Flavor Supreme Pluot
BA Sour with Fruit
We blended stainless fermented and oak aged mixed culture beers on top of super ripe and red juice dripping Flavor Supreme Pluots from Kashiwase Farms in Winton, California. We then further aged the beer in neutral red wine barrels until the fruit refermentation was complete and the flavors were smooth and complex. This is an amazing expression of the fruit’s aromatics and intense juicy flavor. Closing your eyes you can almost taste the skin and flesh. The beer finishes with notes of earthy hops and a clean acidity.
Bourbon Bbl Imperial Coffee & Cigarettes
BA Imperial Porter
After 14 months in Willet Bourbon barrels, Imperial Coffee and Cigarettes, our strong smoked coffee porter, has been transformed. Even more silky, enlivened with rich tannins and hints of bourbon, layered with notes of vanilla and bold Sightglass dark roast coffee, this is a beer meant to be sipped and studied. Allow the glass to warm for several minutes to allow all of the elements to show themselves.
