Collaborating on a beer takes time. Just like making friends. Our like-minded compatriots over at Societe Brewing Co. paired with us to create an IPA like no other. This collaboration features Idaho 7 and New Zealand Southern Cross hops – showcasing citrus flavors and piney, dank aroma as solid as two full glasses clanking together. But this unique bond isn’t forged overnight. Skedaddle to your local spot and enjoy the good times had by all.
Invented in 1971 on Maui, Passion Fruit-Orange-Guava (POG) is a liquid trip to the Hawaiian archipelago. Put your hula skirt on and get with this Milkshake IPA, blended with 250 lbs of fruit pureé. Vegans beware: contains milk sugar.
Bright, rustic and complex, Resonance is an elegant new take on the classic saison style. A blend of two fermentations -- one dry and earthy, one tart -- creates juicy citrus notes, balanced by subtle spice and an effervescent finish. This beer is dynamic, melodic and pleasantly surprising on the palate, a simple luxury welcome at any dinner party.
This beer is a collaboration between Drake's and our friends at Rockwall Cellars in Alameda. Rockwall provided us with 2000lb of lightly pressed Viognier grape skins which was then secondary fermented in a small batch of our Blonde American Sour. The grape skins infuse unique wine like qualities indicative of Viognier. Look for aromas of honey and grass melding with a slight lemon and citrus qualities from the sour base. This beer drinks extremely dry with a bright tartness and mild tannin imparted from the grape skins.
The new ingredient is lactose, a.k.a. milk sugar. When Velvet Merlin is brewed with milk sugar to create Nitro Merlin Milk Stout, the effect is similar to adding cream to your dark roasted coffee. The result is a stout that is still dark and roasty, but now with a mellow sweetness and added roundness of body.
The flavor: cold. The crushability: maximum. Ice is our very first pils, and it brings the noise. Hopped with Czech Saaz and Australian Summer hops, before, like, so many weeks of lagering, Ice packs the flavor of the mighty San Diego mountains into a compact 4.8% ABV package.
Westfalia packs rich, caramel flavors into a rounded, mahogany body through a colorful blend of creamy malts. Traditionally fermented at cooler temperatures, Westfalia’s rotbier style showcases a layered malt profile that creates a smooth, satisfying mouthfeel, perfect for any meal or enjoyed on its own. Inspired by a trip to Nuremberg, Germany, Westfalia imports an exemplary red ale to audiences closer to home.
Like Lady Liberty, we stand for independence and perseverance. In the pursuit of innovative beer, there is no obstacle too great. No journey too long. No fruit too gigantic. This American wheat beer is brewed with real watermelon, for a flavor that’s surprisingly crisp, dry and refreshing—summer in a can.
Mighty Dry is a champagne-like cider that pairs perfectly with any moment of the day. It’s just dry enough. It's perfectly balanced, and crispy (if not crispier) as biting into a freshly picked apple. Pairs greatly with pork, shellfish, fried plantains, or savory veggie dishes.
Our flagship semi-sweet hard cider. Our attempt at the perfect sip! Strong fruity apple characteristics accompanied by the refreshing tartness of biting into a ripe apple. *** Formerly known as South City Cider ***
A true “West Coast” IPA, which is hop forward without the extreme hop bitterness. Light in body and color; this beer is bursting with huge citrus and tropical aromas. The name comes from the Rolling Stone’s song “Gimme Shelter”, which is also the name of the movie that documents the Altamont Concert of 1969.
Straw like in color with a strong white head, with aromas of Citra and Mosaic hops exploding from the glass. Strong citrus and grapefruit notes accent the palate with slight hay and yeast notes towards the finish. Crisp, refreshing, and easy to drink. A great California Pale Ale.
