Can I visit the brewery?
We are currently only open for beer to-go 7 days a week. Brewery tours are postponed due to Covid-19.
How can I get beer donations for my event?
We are happy to support nonprofits who align with our vision for a more sustainable future.
•Donation requests must be made at least 14 days prior to the event.
•To qualify, the donation recipient must have an active 501(c)(3) status.
•If you're a non-profit hosting a beer festival, a Special One-Day Event Permit from the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control will be required.
•The California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control does not allow breweries to donate gift cards, tours, merchandise, or beer to auctions or raffles.
Please understand we get an extremely high volume of requests and are not able to fulfill all of them.
What does mixed-culture fermentation mean?
Our barrel-aged sours contain multiple strains of yeast and bacteria, a mixed-culture that creates a layered and nuanced flavor experience. Most commonly we use a blend of lactobacillus bacteria, and several yeast strains, including brettanomyces (wild yeast) and saccharomyces (brewers yeast).
Most sour ales available today are known as “kettle sours” and use only lactobacillus to create tartness. While this is a fast and economical way to create sour beer, it generally results in a less complex flavor profile.
How should I store my beer?
Barrel-aged sour beers should be kept upright and at cellar temperature (55ºF or cooler) and away from humidity.
Fresh beer (IPAs, lagers, stouts, etc.) should always be kept refrigerated (35-40ºF).
Bottled beer should always be stored away from light.
How quickly should I consume my beer?
In general, we recommend drinking our brews as close to the packaging date as possible! That said, if your stocking your cellar, here are some freshness guidelines to keep in mind:
IPAs - ideally consume within 90 days of packaging
Lagers - consume within 120 days of packaging
Canned Sours - consume within 180 days of packaging
Bottled Sours - consume within 3 years of packaging
