Fog City IPA Can Release

Kick off Beer Week right with our latest can release, a hazy beer clocking in at 7.5% ABV.

Fog City IPA

IPA paradise lies in the taste buds of the beholder. Some people dream about clouds and haze, others long for the clean and clear. We partnered with our friends at Karl Strauss in San Diego to brew this Hawaiian farmers’ market of an IPA, a fruit-forward hoppy beer bursting with flavors of juicy mango, peach, papaya, pineapple and even coconut. The twist: we brewed a Northeast-style hazy IPA, while they used the exact same Ekuanot, Citra and HBC438-heavy hop profile to make a classic, clear West Coast IPA.

Radical Kindness IPA Can + Shwag Release

This is truly our favorite day of Beer Week each year. It’s the day we release some of our favorite things: glassware and shirts.

Radical Kindness IPA

In our ongoing mission to promote acts of radical kindness, we graciously brewed this clear gold, generously hoppy West Coast IPA. Courteously loaded with a decent amount of Ekuanot, Centennial and Amarillo hops, Radical Kindness sweetly offers notes of lemon, grapefruit and orange, resulting in a clean and tender bitterness that unselfishly refreshes your palate. Have a radically kind beer and pass on the compassion.

5th Annual Hopfest with Bigger Boat Can Release

We love nothing more than coming into the taproom and seeing our beautiful lineup of hoppy beers bursting from the beer menu. This year is no different—to go with the hop-heavy lineup we are releasing our 11.0% ABV Bigger Boat Triple IPA in 4-packs of 12 oz cans.

Bigger Boat Triple IPA

You’re gonna need a Bigger Boat. Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, we’re re-releasing our jaws-dropping Triple IPA for Sacramento Beer Week. Loaded to the gills with Amarillo, Mosaic and Citra hops, this tropical monster terrorizes your tongue like the ultimate taste bud-killing machine, sinking its citrus-tipped teeth into your palate and leaving you feeling like you’ve been dragged through water chummed with mangos and pineapples.
