We brew small batches of fresh, exciting, and experimental beers, often in collaboration with our friends in the Bay Area’s vibrant food and drink world.

Our inspiration comes from far and wide, but our beers are deeply rooted here. Our approach is unconventional but our work is accessible and friendly: Adventurous brews for curious drinkers. Our beers are on constant rotation in our taprooms, offered seasonally and when available.

Local Honey

Herbal Ale / 6.0%

Blossoming with scents of spring and the taste of Bay-Area honey, this special herbal brew is infused with our bees’ favorite flavors: fragrant, fennel-like yarrow, the resinous bite of eucalyptus, lavender’s sweet high note of mint and berry.

Islay

Double IPA / 9.0%

A double IPA aged in Laphroaig barrels: Twining tartan hop vines above the peat bog, swaying in sea spray and salt: wool-wrapped and earthy, a rusted blade, a kilt-clad grapefruit.

Fernando

Herbal Ale / 6.6%

Ginger Pale

Pale / 6.7%

The soothing spice of ginger, the earthy sweetness of vanilla, and twangy lilt of lemon, make one harmoniuos, uplifting brew, warming and refreshing at once.

Smooch

Sour / 5.3%

Pucker up! A bright berry blonde ale packed with more than ten pounds of raspberries per barrel. A spoonful of jelly on the nose with a clean, tingly tart finish.
