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

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.

Pick Beer & Cider This Thanksgiving

We're just a couple weeks away from Thanksgiving and if I had to bet, I'd guess your mind is starting to turn to images of crispy Brussels sprouts, glistening brown turkey, and fluffy mountains of mashed potatoes. But as your mental shopping list starts to build, don't forget the booze. This most essential contributor to a convivial holiday table is too important to leave to Aunt Becky, who may or may not bring the cheapest bottle of wine from the 7-11 closest to your house. You'll want the good stuff, and there's nothing better than an elegant bottle of beer or cider for your dinner table.

Some recommendations:

Commons Petite Classique
Saisons are some of the food-friendliest beers around, and Petite Classique is no exception. This is a super dry, super refreshing take on the style with a gentle spiciness from an addition of pink peppercorns. It's lively and bright enough to avoid weighing you down amidst all that rich food, and has enough carbonation to leave your palate refreshed and ready for your next bite.
Now available in 750ml bottles.

Logsdon Kili Wit
The soft and citrusy flavors of Logsdon's Kili Wit are the perfect partner to a plate of white meat turkey, punchy cranberry sauce, and mashed potatoes. Its orangey, gently-spiced aromatics fit in neatly with the delicate turkey breast while softening the tart 'n' tannic bite of the cranberry sauce, all while offering a refreshing brightness to keep you going over a marathon display of gluttony.
Now available in 375ml and 750ml bottles and 1/6bbl kegs.

Renaissance Great Punkin
Medium bodied and gently sweet, this beer focuses on caramelized malts, roasted pumpkin flavor, and just the right amount of warming spices. It's toasty and drinkable stuff with upwards of 7% ABV to keep you warm as the temperature drops. Its deeply bready, caramelly malt character finds a perfect partner in dark meat turkey, pecan pie, nutty stuffing, and of course, roasted squash.
Now available in 500ml bottles.

Dragon's Head Columbia Crabapple
Fall is apple season, and there's no more seasonally-appropriate a beverage than cider for your Thanksgiving celebrations. Dragon's Head's new Columbia Crabapple belongs on the table, with a zippy acidity and an elegant tannic structure to keep things balanced. It's just a touch off dry, which helps it work with the wide range of food on your table, from prime rib and green bean casserole to sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie.
Now available in 750ml bottles.

Frederiksdal Sur Lie
For the ideal post-meal sipper, look to Frederiksdal's Sur Lie. This is a rich, insanely delicious wine made entirely from Danish cherries, with a dense complexity, balanced sweetness, and bold tannin and acidity. It will be like nothing your guests have ever tasted before and everyone seems to love it.
Now available in 500ml bottles.
