Our Beer

Unfortunately we’re kind of selfish when it comes to brewing. We brew styles that pique our own interests and allow us to learn more about our craft. But what we strive for is to make sure there’s something for everyone in this ADHD-approach to beer making. Most beers listed below will not be available all the time, but as we continue to evolve as a brewery, you’ll see many of these reappear, along with exciting new releases. Maintaining the fun part about brewing is important to us, so we try not to get too tied down to any particular styles or brands.

Hoppy



38 Miles in glass

38 Miles

American Pale Ale

Hoppy American Pale Ale made with our friends from Sante Adairius Rustic Ales, only 38 miles up the coast! This beer is an expression of both our breweries - we combined yeast strains and picked out some of our favorite hops. The result a balanced impression of pine & citrus hop character with tropical overtones and a creamy mouthfeel.

ABV 5.8% | 35 IBU


  • Yeast: Blend of SARA / ASB House Strains
  • Malt: Golden Promise, American 2-Row, Flaked Oats, Flaked Barley

A.A. Fest

Hoppy Lager

Collaboration with our friends at Altamont Beer Works! A golden, Oktoberfest-inspired lager with a heavy dry hop that includes Citra, Mosaic & 07270. We fermented ours with a house lager strain, while Altamont took the same recipe and used an ale strain so that people can see the impact yeast can make with hoppy beer.

Book Cover

American Black Ale

Don't judge a book by it's cover! It may look dark, but it's actually quite hoppy and the roasty flavors you would normally associate with a beer this color are largely absent. Mosaic hops add a tropical element with moderate bitterness to create a balanced, drinkable Black ale.

ABV 6.7%% | 30 IBU

Citraveza in glass

Citraveza

Hoppy Mexican Lager

This is a hoppy Mexican lager, inspired by a San Diego garage homebrew recipe from 2011. Bitterness is light and crisp, but hop aroma & flavor are front and center. We overuse the word “tropical”, but there’s really no better way to describe Citraveza, as the interaction between the lager yeast and these hops make for a truly unique beer.

Contains No Juice

Double India Pale Ale

Double IPA fermented with a formerly classified Brettanomyces yeast strain that produces intense tropical aromas and flavors. We augment these yeast esters with Citra, Mosaic, and touch of Galaxy in the dry hop, resulting in a total juice bomb. It also has a beautiful orangey haze, and creamy mouthfeel from the addition of flaked oats.

Double 07(270)

West Coast IPA

Formerly known as Dank Sauce, the earthy, resinous, diesel-like hop character of this IPA defines what we feel a “dank” hoppy beer should embody. We use experimental hop #07270, Summit, and HBC #366 to achieve this.

ABV 6.9% | 65 IBU

Double Cone

Imperial India Pale Ale

“Hop Bomb” would be cliché to describe this beer. It goes way beyond that – intense aromas of pineapple, freshly crushed gooseberry, orange pith and the whole spectrum of “dank” blast through the glass. That’s what you get with nearly five pounds per barrel of Nelson, Mosaic, and Citra hops.

First City IPA in glass

First City IPA

West Coast IPA

First City is a pale, dry and a definitively West Coast-style IPA that highlights the deep tangerine and tropical-heavy notes of one of our favorite hops, Citra. Massive aroma, balanced bitterness, heavy on hop flavor; you'll enjoy the burps on this one.

ABV 6.8%% | 45 IBU


  • Yeast: California Ale
  • Malt: American 2-Row
  • Hops: Citra
Grower’s Pale in glass

Grower’s Pale

American Pale Ale

Dedicated to the Ag workers of the Salinas Valley, this is a juicy, hop forward beer that drinks more like an IPA than a traditional balanced American pale ale. The yeast strain produces nectarine-like, stone fruit esters which blend beautifully with dank hops like Eureka, El Dorado & Mandarina Bavaria. Enjoy this rather hazy interpretation of what we think is a damn delicious hoppy pale ale.

Haze of Our Lives

India Pale Ale

IPA with a fruity yeast strain and experimental South African hops. In this series we explore various hops from the Southern Hemisphere in the quest to bring you the ultimate hop sensory experience. Mouthfeel is creamy from the addition of oats, wheat, and spelt malt. It's got a beautiful orange hue, and is definitely on the more opaque side.

I'd Floccs Wid It

Hybrid IPA

This IPA is fermented with expressive yeast to produce all the "juice" character you'd want in a NE-style IPA, but we brightened it up to look all West Coast polished. Intensely fruity in aromatics, soft bitterness, and a pale, hazy straw color. Fun hybrid of two distinct IPA styles.

American Amber Ale

Classic American-style Red with a piney, resinous hops from the Pacific Northwest and a rich, malty backbone. Very much a traditional West Coast-style red with a clean fermentation, and malt / hop balance.

Mai Tai PA in glass

Mai Tai PA

Technically, an International-Style Pale Ale but We Call It an IPA

Our drier, decidedly “tropical” IPA that’s light on bitterness, but heavy on hop aroma, courtesy of 100% Mosaic hops. One whiff and you get super intense notes of passion fruit, mango, and lychee. Grain bill of just American two-row malt and a clean fermentation keep it simple and allow these hops to shine.

  • Yeast: California Ale
  • Malt: 100% American 2-Row

Minesweeper in glass

Minesweeper

West Coast IPA

Hop hazed and incredibly juicy, this was our first ever brewed IPA and remains our top selling beer and local favorite at our Monterey brewpub. It’s brewed with 100% British Maris Otter pale malt as it’s base, which contributes a creamy texture and a tad more body than your typical dry, West Coast IPA. As with most of our hoppy beers, a majority of the bitterness comes directly from whirlpool additions in the boil, with the intent of maximizing hop aroma & flavor. Minesweeper is dry hopped excessively with Simcoe and Citra hops.

Precious Oils

Wet Hop India Pale Lager

Our very first packaged wet hop beer in the form of an IPL. We started with locally harvested Cascade on the hot side, and later stuffed our lager tank with a heaping of Simcoe flowers that were overnight shipped from the Yakima Valley in Washington. Incredibly fruity (tropical) and resinous aroma, massive green hop flavor, dry and crisp finish in lager fashion.

Single Hop IPL Series

India Pale Lager

Our house lager yeast is squeaky clean and attenuates fully, making it an obvious choice to play around with single hop beers. Focusing primarily on newer hop varieties, past batches have included El Dorado, Azacca, Nelson Sauvin, and Eureka.

Strata Pale Ale

American Pale Ale

A single hop pale with an new hop variety called Strata from the Willamette Valley in Oregon. This is more of a balanced pale ale than a hop bomb - there's subtle lemon, faint citrus character with some herbal notes. Great malt balance, super drinkable APA.

Vengeful Barbarian in glass

Vengeful Barbarian

IPA

Bright, peach heavy tones from an East Coast yeast strain fermentation and a dry hop of Citra & Amarillo. The result is a hop aroma and flavor chock full of ripe, juicy grapefruit and apricot jam. On the back end, we've loaded up with beer with lots of oats, so it has a soft, creamy texture to support mild hop bitterness.

ABV 7% | 40 IBU


  • Yeast: Vermont Ale
  • Malt: American 2-Row, Flaked Oats
  • Hops: Varies with batch
Wharf Rat in glass

Wharf Rat

Hoppy Red Ale

Inspired by frothing groms that attempt to "shred" Wharf #2 on massive swells, this cousin of our West Coast-style Local Shred Red is fermented with a juicy yeast strain that loves fruit-forward and dank hops. One could say it's a New England-style interpretation of a American Red Ale. No specialty malts, all color is derived from Belgian candi sugar.

ABV 7% | 40 IBU


  • Yeast: Saccharomyces "Brux" Trois
  • Malt: American 2-Row, Maris Otter, Belgian Candi Sugar
  • Hops: Simcoe, Mandarina Bavaria, Hallertau Blanc

Yippie Calle Principal

India Pale Ale

Single hop, experimental IPA with the goal of understanding how yeast esters impact different types of hops. Current batch (11.18) uses Ekuanot (formerly Equinox) which, in conjuction with the yeast, produces melon, lime, papaya, berry, and pine notes in the nose and on the palate.
