Alpha Supreme is an over-the-top American pale ale originally brewed to commemorate the 2nd anniversary of New Brew Thursday's beer webcast. For a special twist, we used a hefty dose of German rye malt to compliment American 2-row and light caramel malt. Alpha Supreme is outrageously hopped with Nelson Sauvin, a hop variety from New Zealand, as well as Summit, Columbus, and Simcoe from the good old US. For aunique and bold aroma, we dry hopped Alpha Supreme with Nelson Sauvin and Columbus. IBUs 75
Amalgamator is a West Coast-Style India Pale Ale that's bursting with unique aromas and flavors. A light base of American 2-row malt makes way for the hops to take the stage. Amalgamator is hopped in the kettle with Amarillo, Warrior, Columbus, and Mosaic, a newer American variety. The dry hop is a massive charge of Mosaic that lays down an amalgam of passion fruit, dank resin, and citrus aromas. IBUs 99+
El Verano is a traditional Belgian-style saison that begins with a base of German pilsner malt and a generous portion of malted rye. Malted spelt and flaked wheat adds a pleasant earthiness while softening the mouthfeel. We've incorporated local sage honey to accentuate the floral German hops used in the kettle. Fermented with our favorite Belgian yeast, El Verano has aromas of fresh fruits and delicate spices with a refreshingly dry finish and lively carbonation.

It's hopped just enough with British Goldings hopsfrom East Kent to balance things out. IBUs 33

Lite Brite is a new twist on one of our favorite styles: West Coast-Style India pale ale.

Onyx is a rich, jet-black imperial stout. It's brewed with a base of British Maris Otter barley, British dark caramel malts, and an assortment of British chocolate malts and roasted barley. It also gets a hefty dose of rolled oats, which lends to a maddeningly silky mouthfeel. Kissed with brown sugar and smidgen of blackstrap molasses, Onyx is hopped with German Magnum hops and British Goldings to perfectly balance the broad roasted flavors. Battle the rages of the season with a warming glass of Onyx.
Around here we love to use hops with almost reckless abandon and we're not ashamed. Brewed with Falconer's Flight, a proprietary hop blend from our friends at Hopunion, The Falcon is an IPA that celebrates the diversity of hops. While tame on the malt, we infuse massive loads of hops (in the kettle and dry hop) to impart flavors and aromas of citrus, pine, and tropical fruits. Drink this mighty IPA and be proud. IBUs 99+

The finished beer was then aged for several days masterfully roasted coffee from Portola Coffee Lab in Costa Mesa.
