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.
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!
Cellarmaker selected our seven favorite hops and used them strategically to maximize their best qualities. Come experience the rainbow's edge of Citra, Mosaic, Sterling, Nelson, Sabro, Simcoe and Motueka. We used to use Southern Passion instead of Sabro but have removed the former hop due to the fact it is sold by an InBev (Budweiser) owned farm.
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.
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.
Hey there, Hop Stuff! Floral hop aromas, as well as more subtle stone fruit and juicy tropical fruits dominate this hazy IPA. A sip reveals a pine sap and cedar like flavor reminiscent of the classic hop flavors of yesteryear. Hopped with New Zealand Cascade, Simcoe, Nelson and a touch of HBC344.
