DDH ALS In Chains IV
Every year we participate in the Ales for ALS fundraiser where we are sent a pre-established hop blend to do whatever we want with. This year we brewed a Double Dry Hopped (with only the ALS hop blend) IPA and fermented it with genetically modified yeast which gives off the aroma of melon and Fruity Pebbles cereal.
Hey there, Hop Stuff! Juicy tropical, as well as more subtle stone fruit and floral aromas exude from this hazy IPA. A sip reveals a pine sap and coconut like flavor that balances the sweet fruit qualities of the Sabro, Simcoe and Nelson hops.
Kilning Me Softly
6.8 % ABV
There are a few points in the processing of hops that their beautiful aromatics can be accidentally driven off or altered negatively. During kilning, the wet, freshly picked hops sit in a bed while hot air is pumped through them. A perfectly kilned hop will retain just the right amount of moisture as well as those juicy aromas. This beer contains 2018 Simcoe, Mosaic, Strata and Citra!
DDH Mo’ Nelson
Mosaic and Nelson hops are two of our top faves. This beer is packed with fruit from these killer hops. Enjoy as they capoeira around your dome. Cantaloupe, Gooseberries, Blueberry and a slight touch of that dank diesel character that only our good friend Nelson can bring to the table. DDH VERSION!!!
Bucket of Truth
Look into the bucket of truth if you dare… You may not like what you see. This summertime crusher is hopped with Citra, Nelson, Galaxy, and Simcoe. Exceedingly juicy with notes of pineapple, mandarin, mango, papaya, kiwifruit, and melon.
With this pale we explore the enigmatic New Zealand Cascade hop, one of a few American varieties that is grown down to New Zealand. We single hopped with Cascade from 2018 & 2019 to infuse this brew with a rainbow of aromas, namely lemon-lime, Juicy Fruit gum, bergamot orange & evening excretion of Angel’s Trumpet. A sip is piney and floral as well as über refreshing with a grapefruit pith finish.
Farmer Direct: Earlirich Peach
BA Sour with Fruit
Crammed with amazing Earlirich peaches from Kashiwase Farms, we created the perfect blend of barrel aged & barrel aged mixed culture beers, further aged the blend in oak on super juicy, drippingly ripe organic peaches from California. Like most of our fruited sours, we hand processed real fruit fresh from farmers have formed relations with in order to bring you an incredibly potent & luscious Cali fruit & beer experience.
We took those classic C hops that your dad knows and loves -- Chinook, Citra, Centennial and New Zealand Cascade -- and ran it through our Cellarmaker IPA machine to make our house C-HoP IPA. A maltbill of over 30% oats smoothly delivers hop-derived notes of fresh Valencia orange peel and pine. Pairs perfectly with Detroit-style pizza and Mission burritos.
A saison of old world character and rusticity, Lost Wisdom has been fermenting with bacteria and yeast in the same vessel for many years now. Employing the “solera” method, we pull out a certain volume of beer from the vessel for packaging and then brew fresh wort back in to continue the cyclical process blending old with new, over and over again.
They say you only Yolo once...so we threw a bunch of rare New Zealand Riwaka hops alongside healthy doses of American Simcoe, Mosaic and Citra. Notes of passionfruit, stonefruit, rambutan flesh, star fruit and subtle resin. Bright and unique.
Brewed with pale and pilsner malts and hopped with Nelson, HBC 344, Sabro, Chinook & Centennial. A partying combination of hops that pushes the piney, eucalyptus aromas to the stage with soft stone fruit and lemon notes crowd surfing below. Get ready because drinking this beer will fill you with the energy of a thousand partying demons!
Latte & Cigarettes
Smoked Coffee Porter
This Coffee and Cigarettes variant comes straight out of the La Marzocco espresso machine. Okay, that’s not true, but we were inspired by the steamed milk espresso drink. We added creamy and sweet lactose sugar along with Sightglass Banner Dark roast coffee for a more luscious and decadent take on our popular smoked coffee porter.CONTAINS LACTOSE.
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.
Good As Hell
E.T. Stone Home
Stonefruit IPA with Nugget, NZ Cascade -- No lactose!
Double Mt. Nelson
Ask yourself this question: how much Nelson can I handle? If your answer is “as much as you can give me,” then you are ready to climb Double Mt. Nelson. This 100% Nelson Sauvin hopped DIPA is packed with 6 lbs per barrel of various Nelson crops to create an intense spectrum of Nelson amazingness.
The verdict’s in, Cellarmaker loves bitters! We have no objection to making full flavored, low alcohol, crushable beers. We brew Legally Bitter with a significant portion of spicy rye plus English crystal malts which bring a nice nutty, toffee like character. We singularly hopped this ale with HBC 344, an experimental hop variety with citrus, floral and earthy notes.
Another Bad Omen
Unforeseen elements arrive and clash and another bad omen emerges. As we transition from Winter to Summer, Spring weather can be unpredictable. We have brewed a seasonal porter that is chewy and rich yet has a restrained ABV for sessionable crushing, good for cold or hot days alike.
Turok: Mosaic Hunter
We applied our expressive yeast blend to our tried and true “Turok: Mosaic Hunter“ recipe. Hopped with 3 different lots of incredible, specially selected Mosaic hops this beer is truly dynamic and shows off one of our favorite varieties. Notes of stonefruit, melon, and resin with an incredibly pungent aroma!
DDH Get Schwifty
After consulting with the one and only lyrical wordsmith genius that is Mr. Bulldobs, we decided that nothing says "schwifty" like a face ripping IPA. Brewed with three distinct hops, Equinox, Riwaka and Galaxy, Get Schwifty is a juicy fruit bomb with notes of pineapple, mango, concord grape and apricot. DDH VERSION!!!
STS Pils – Russian River Brewing Co.
STS Pils is a classic European style Pilsner. It is straw in color and often times will have a slight haze due to the fact that it is unfiltered. STS Pils is a hop forward pilsner with a mild malt foundation, strong lager yeast characteristic, and a dry, bitter finish.
