Seasonal Beers

The Full Ginger (Saison)
ABV: 6.9%; IBU: 28
(Also available in bottle shops around San Diego)

Notes of bread and biscuit combine with Belgian yeast to impart a fruity tartness and a big ginger nose. Adding fresh ginger root like a dry hop adds a spicy aroma and flavor. The Full Ginger is spicy on the nose and palette, but its smooth finish makes it a natural complement to most food pairings.

Pogue Mahone (Red ISB)
ABV: 5.6%; IBU: 27

A hybrid style based off the once popular ESB (Extra Special Bitter), the Pogue Mahone is malt forward with hints of caramel, toffee, and cherry. Lighter in bitterness than its English-born relative and the combination of specialty malts providing a deep red appearance is the base for it’s Irish name. Hopped with East Kent Golding to keep it true to its roots provides floral and herbaceous aromas.

Mocha Milk Stout
ABV: 6.8%; IBU: 35

A nutty, medium bodied stout that is brewed with two-row malt, cocoa nibs, and local cold brew coffee, it is not overly heavy or overly sweet. With hints of chocolate and coffee bitterness this is an easy drinking, full-flavored stout. While we consider it seasonal, it is available nearly year round due to high demand.

Red IPA
ABV: 7.0%; IBU: 69

Brewed with Jarrylo and Simcoe hops, this Red IPA (still unnamed) has a good nose with aroma of fruity spice, pine, and hints of pear. It is sweet on the palette with a lingering hop bitterness that is distinctive of West Coast IPA’s. Red IPA is a great entry IPA.

Groundswell Hefeweizen
ABV: 5.2%; IBU: 12

A true Bavarian Hefeweizen, we use more than 50% wheat malt to achieve a full-bodied crisp, light wheat beer. Low in bitterness and hop aroma, the banana and clove character provided by yeast are evident. A sweet taste and hazy appearance help to make this easy drinking beer a favorite for a full range of beer drinkers.

Mango Tart
ABV: 4.6%; IBU: 20

The first in the Sour Suite, Mango Tart is a kettle-soured beer that is not overly sour, but tart and balanced. It has rich mango aroma and flavor, but a mellow finish that cleanses the palate. It is refreshing and light, with some salt and savory and an acidic mouthfeel.
