Introducing: E9 Brewery

That's right, folks--we're bringing you another exciting new producer this week! E9 Brewery is new to California, but their roots in their home of Tacoma, Washington go deep.

The brewery is housed in an old firehouse (Engine House No. Nine, of course) that was established in 1907. Later in its life, the firehouse became a tavern in 1972 before reaching its current state as the E9 Brewery, established in 1995 as Tacoma's first craft beer maker.

At 22 years old, E9 is old by the standards of the craft beer industry, but you'd never know it from the beers they're making. These are modern, forward-thinking beers that are at the cutting edge of all that's cool about the 2017 craft beer scene. Check 'em out!

Amitie is a tart farmhouse ale featuring layers upon layers of complexity from fermentation and a stint aging in used red wine barrels with multiple strains of Brettanomyces. Absolutely beautiful stuff!

Introducing: Wildcraft Cider Works

Eugene, Oregon is a beautiful place, surrounded by mountains, wild greenery, and the majestic Willamette River. It's easy to see how the folks at Wildcraft Cider Works would be inspired by it.

This is a cidery making real, seasonal ciders entirely from whole fruit. They appreciate the beauty of their hometown and do what they can to bottle it up for you, exclusively using locally-grown fruit and other ingredients. In some cases, we're talking SUPER local--one of the ciders they've sent us uses fruit grown within 10 miles of their facility. Their ciders are fermented only with native yeast and are unpasteurized.

These are really interesting ciders that are truly expressive of the place where they're born and we're excited to be working with them for the first time. Welcome, Wildcraft!


Now available:


Pioneer Perry
Oregon's official state fruit is the pear, and Pioneer Perry showcases it in all its glory. This is a perry made up of a mix of both wild and cultivated pears to create a drink that is off-dry and rich with huge aromatics, but remains drinkable and satisfying.
Now available in 500ml bottles.

Wild Rose
Wild Rose is a truly unusual cider made with whole foraged wild roses, cold-infused into a base of ultra-complex, blended, wild fermented cider. Fresh, floral, and bright with huge aromatics.
Now available in 500ml bottles.

Mirabelle Wild Plum
Made with Oregon-grown biodynamic French Mirabelle plums, fermented whole and pressed to create a rich plum wine that is blended back into a base of tart Gravenstein-heavy cider.
Now available in 500ml bottles.

Farmhouse Scrumpy
Farmhouse Scrumpy is made entirely from apples from wild trees grown within ten miles of Wildcraft HQ. It's an intriguing, complex cider highlighting Wildcraft's signature funky fermentation character alongside layers of beautiful apple flavor.
Now available in 500ml bottles.

Mon Dieu!

Montreal's Dieu du Ciel! is a brewery with impressive range. While they are perhaps best known for their brilliant stouts, Péché Mortel and Aphrodite, you're sure to find something you'll love across their entire portfolio, from their takes on classic beers like the Belgian strong dark ale to more modern style-busters.

Lucky for you, we've got both their famous stouts and a wide selection of their thrilling "others" available now. Check it out!


Now available:

Divine Comedie
Made in collaboration with fellow Quebecois brewery Trou du Diable, Divine Comedie is a brilliant wheat pilsner brewed with juicy, punchy Mosaic hops. Dry, zesty, grainy, and drinkable. 99 on RateBeer!
Now available in 30L KeyKegs.

Rigor Mortis Abt
Rigor Mortis is a big ol' Belgian strong dark ale that weighs in at 11.5% ABV. It's rich and aggressive when fresh, mellowing with age. Big aromatics of plum, red wine, caramel, and black pepper. 99 on RateBeer!
Now available in 11.5oz bottles.

Rosée d'Hibiscus
Brewed with hibiscus (as you might have guessed), Rosée d'Hibiscus is a shockingly pink wheat beer with a beautifully floral aroma and a refreshing snap of acidity. Wonderful stuff.
Now available in 11.5oz bottles.

Route des Épices
Route des Épices is one of our team's favorite under-the-radar beers. It's a spicy brown ale brewed with black and green peppercorns--toasty and earthy upfront, with a peppery spiciness that builds with every sip. A great food beer!

Faction Bottles are Here!!

Faction Bottles are Here!!

Your eyes do not deceive you. That image up there is a label for a bottled Faction beer. This is a day we've dreamed about since we first partnered up with Rodger, Claudia and the rest of the Faction crew. For the first time, you can pop a Faction beer into your fridge and not have to squeeze your eggs and milk in with several cubic feet of stainless steel.

It's an exciting time, made more exciting by the fact that Faction has bottled up four or their tastiest beers and done so in versatile 500ml bottles that work well as a single serving or as a share-able. We're beyond happy to be bringing you bottles of Alameda's finest for the first time. Check 'em out:

Now available:

Flagship Pale
The introduction of Faction's Pale Ale quickly established them as masters of the pale, hoppy ale. It's a stellar example of the modern American version of the style--lean and drinkable, loaded with explosive aromatics from Simcoe, Mosaic, and CTZ hops. It's punchy and pungent and perfect.
94 on RateBeer!
Now available in 500ml bottles (and kegs!)

Imperial Stout
A smooth, complex imperial stout that doesn't go completely over-the-top at 8.5% ABV. Expect layered flavors of dates, plums, and very dark chocolate with a licoricey finishing bite.
Now available in 500ml bottles.

Penske File
Penske File is another pale ale, this time featuring the bright, juicy tones of Mosaic and Equinox hops in harmony. Perfectly balanced and crazy crushable.
Now available in 500ml bottles.

Spring IPA
Faction's Spring seasonal IPA has just been released, also featuring the delicious one-two punch of Mosaic and Equinox. This beer is a bit bigger, weighing in at 6.8% ABV, with a little more heft behind the wall of hoppy goodness. A delight!
Now available in 500ml bottles.
 
Back in Stock: All Things Crux

Back in Stock: All Things Crux

It's not every day you come across a brewery that is equally adept at making bold, rich dark ales, beautifully fermented sour ales, hoppy beers with elegance, and solid, reliable lagered crushers.

But our friends at Crux are really good at making beer. We're reminded of that every time we pop one of their cans or take a swig off a pint. So when a shipment with pallets full of freshly-packaged beers from our favorite Benders (is that what they're called?) rolls through our door, we get excited.

We're excited. A shipment of Crux's finest has been received and it's ready for your ordering pleasure now. Check it out!

Now available:

Better Off Red
Better Off Red is a brilliant interpretation of the Flanders red style, made in true Crux fashion. It's a rich Belgian red ale that rests with an array of microflora inside Willamette Valley pinot noir barrels to take on a complex fermentation profile and serious depth of flavor. Malty, layered, tart and beguiling.
95 on RateBeer!
Now available in 500ml bottles.

Cast Out
Cast Out is a brilliant IPA abundantly hopped with Australian Galaxy hops for juicy, tropical, floral aromatics in bounds. Delicious, hop-forward, PNW IPA goodness, now in cans!
94 on RateBeer!
Now available in 12oz cans & 1/6bbl kegs.

Gimme Mo
Crux's newest canned IPA comes with a tagline: "not just another IPA"--it's designed to stand out from the pack. It's lower alcohol (about 6%), well-rounded, and aromatic from Mosaic and Citra hops. Smooth and tropical and extra crushable.
Now available in 12oz cans & 1/6bbl kegs.

Half Hitch
Half Hitch offers an even bolder IPA experience--it's a big double IPA with even mo' Mosaic. At 10% ABV, it's shockingly drinkable, with huge flavors of peach, guava, and citrus. A modern classic!
98 on RateBeer!
Now available in 500ml bottles & 1/6bbl kegs.

PCT Porter
Named for (and benefitting!) the legendary Pacific Crest Trail, PCT Porter is Crux's newest foray into the less-hoppy realm. It's a dry, super-drinkable everyday porter with a satisfying roasty edge.
Now available in 1/6bbl kegs.

Pilz
Our camping trips and beachside lounging have not been the same since Crux started sending us Pilz in cans. It's a fantastic beer with crackery malts and floral European hop aromatics in perfect balance.
98 on RateBeer!
Now available in 12oz cans & 1/6bbl kegs.

Stout
Crux's aptly-named stout, Stout, is everything you want from the style. It's rich and complex with layers upon layers of malty goodness brought on by a recipe that includes chocolate, roasted, and dark crystal malts.
98 on RateBeer!
Now available in 500ml bottles.
