World Class Lagers from Across the Globe

We've written fairly extensively about how much we love lager. Most of the time, we're not talking about flashy beers, but there's something about a well-crafted lager that can satisfy in a way that nothing else can. Indeed, a clean, balanced lager is a beautiful thing, and we've recently been able to stock up on some truly special examples to share with you from around the world. We've got Czech and German stuff, both traditional and not, but we've also got Italian, American, and Swiss stuff on the price list right now as well. Check it out!

Now Available:

Koutska 10°
A glorious pale lager built for drinking in quantity. 4% ABV, incredibly flavorful, balanced, and oh-so-crushable with a soft, round texture and a firm snap of finishing bitterness.
The #7 highest rated Czech Pilsner on RateBeer with a 100 score.
Now available in 20L PETainer kegs.

Brewfist La Bassa
Brewfist's La Bassa is everything we want out of a pale, hoppy lager. It's lean but not thin, bitter but balanced, and satisfying from first sip to last thanks to beautifully-expressed aromatics from bready barley malt and floral Tradition hops. It's a perfect lager at a price that's as palatable as the beer itself.
Now available in 330ml bottles.

Two Tales Bohemian Grapefruit Lager
For a juicier take on the pale lager style, Two Tales has you covered. their Bohemian Grapefruit Lager is, as you might expect, infused with grapefruit for a fruity, zesty, and bright riff on a classic beer style. It's briskly bitter, super-refreshing, and eminently drinkable at just 3.5% ABV.
Now available in 330ml bottles.

Heater Allen Dunkel
Dunkel is one of our favorite styles of beer, in all it's rich, bready, satisfying glory, but it is woefully difficult to find great American-made examples. Heater Allen to the rescue! Their dunkel is great by any standard (in fact, it's the 6th highest rated example of the style on RateBeer) and it's available to you now, fresh from Oregon. It's layered and complex but clean, with impeccable balance.
Rated 100 on RateBeer!
Now available in 22oz bottles.


Also available: Holiday Beers!

Fresh-Squeezed Beers

Fresh-Squeezed Beers

Citrus beers are a trend we can get behind. The bright, aromatic oils of oranges, tangerines, grapefruits and lemons are a perfect match with the floral and similarly citrusy aromatics of hops. The bright acidity of beers soured with bacteria kicks the citrusy satisfaction up even further, making for a bright, satisfying partnership. And while you might think that citrus-tinged sour ales are a pretty fringey corner of the beer world, we're happy to say that we've got several options for you, in draft and in bottle, as we dive right in to winter citrus season. Check it out!

Now Available:

Perennial Von Pampelmuse
Perennial's Von Pampelmuse is a delightfully tart citrus bomb of a Berliner weisse, brewed with grapefruit and mandarins. Juicy, bright, and refreshing--winter's answer to our summertime favorite, Suburban Beverage!
Now available in 750ml bottles.

Siren / Hill Farmstead / Mikkeller Barrel-Aged LemonCello
A whiskey sour in beer form. Siren's popular collaboration, LemonCello sour lemon IPA, has been aged in bourbon barrels, softening the puckering lemony edge and creating a lovely, intensely-flavorful, and unusual beer.
Now available in 330ml bottles.

Siren Grapefruit 'Ting
In response to the popularity of LemonCello, Siren created Grapefruit 'Ting, aka Pompelmocello. It's brewed with grapefruit juice and zest, and hopped generously with the most grapefruity hops the brewers could find. It's a bright, enjoyable sour IPA for the grapefruit lover!
95 on RateBeer!
Now available in 330ml bottles.

Jolly Pumpkin Los Vivos y Los Muertos
Brewed exclusively for us lucky Californians, Los Vivos y Los Muertos is a 4.2% ABV sour ale brewed with pumpkin and lime. Get it?! It's a drinkable celebration of our partnership with America's first all-sour brewery. Bright acidity, zesty aromatics, and so delicious.
Now available in 1/6 bbl kegs.

Introducing: Beachwood Brewing

Introducing: Beachwood Brewing

We've been fans of the folks down at Beachwood since we first sat down for a pulled pork sandwich and a few too many beers in Seal Beach back in 2008. They're still there, slingin' tasty 'que and delicious beers in Seal Beach, but today, the Beachwood universe is much bigger and somehow even better. They've expanded their 'que slingin' to Long Beach, opened the sour beer blender Beachwood Blendery, and are now brewing their own stuff at two locations.

We're bigger fans of Gabe and his crew than ever, which is why we're thrilled to be bringing their excellent beers to Northern California. We've just received a load of two of their best, but it's only a sneak peek of what's to come. Keep an eye out for bottles and more kegs soon!

Now Available:

Foam Top
Foam Top is a classic American blonde ale--grainy, balanced, and crushable, with loads of character. It's everything you'd hope for from the style, and the critics agree: it's recently won gold at the Great American Beer Festival and the World Beer Cup.
Now available in 1/2 bbl kegs.

Citraholic
Citraholic is a Citra-focused West Coast IPA with a fierce following. It's a hugely aromatic beer, with tropical, citrusy hop character leaping from the glass. Expect passion fruit, apricot, and tangerine aromas in droves, with just the right amount of finishing bitterness.
100 on RateBeer!
Now available in 1/2bbl kegs.
