Cervecería turns THREE

The little Mission brewpub where Woods Beer Co. began started pouring our unique MateVeza IPA three years ago—and look how we’ve grown! Our trusty 20-gallon brewhouse is churning out creative new brews and we’ve brought our adventurous spirit to two new locations around the Bay.

But it all started here—and we’re celebrating!

Join the fun this Tuesday, April 7, and toast many happy returns with this extra-special draft list of rare and curious new brews!

Yerba Mate IPA - The beer that started it all! Our first brew, and now our flagship, is an adventurous spin on a classic style: flavored with a South American tea called yerba mate (say "mah-tay"), this friendly IPA is golden and a touch sweet with a minty, herbal bitterness. (As much caffeine as half a cup of coffee.)

Morpho - An extra-special keg of our fan-favorite “gruit” style herbal beer, made with yerba mate, hibiscus, and bay leaves. Our very first batch of Morpho, aged three years and blooming with wine-like fruit and berry notes, a refreshing sourness, and a tart dry finish. (As much caffeine as half a cup of coffee.)

Anniversary Tripel - Three years in and shining bright! Celebrate Cerveceria’s third birthday with this Belgian brew (appropriately called a tripel), made with exotically juicy hops and a touch of our trademark mate. 

Local Honey - Blossoming scents of spring, the taste of Bay-Area honey, infused with our bees' favorite flavors: fragrant, fennel-like yarrow, the resinous bite of eucalyptus, lavender's sweet high note of mint and berry.

Sparkle Motion WILD - Get committed! A sequined-bright blonde ballerina, nimble but strong. A sweet lip-glossed kiss of sourdough bread, a playful slap of bitter maté and boozy heat. This funky encore performance was fermented with a wild yeast called brettanomyces.

La Morena - A slightly roasty, English-style brown ale. A bit of crunch, a bit of caramel, like toast drizzled with Lyle’s Golden Syrup.

Beachcomber NITRO - A tingling tart blonde ale infused with mangoes, berries, and dark tart cherries. A bright, tropical taste of paradise — no cocktail umbrella needed. Served on a nitrogen tap for a smoother, softer finish.
