At Discretion we care deeply for the world we live in and believe our beer should be responsibly-made. That’s why our beer is crafted from 100% organic malts and hops and why we harness the power of the sun to brew our beer. Whether you choose an old favorite or one of many seasonals offered throughout the year, you will find goodness in your glass–organic, solar-powered, and delicious.
Find us at events around town, and don’t miss weekly and special events in our taproom! On “Love Mondays” we feature local non-profits and make donations toward their causes. On Wednesdays we have Live Music at 6:30 pm with no cover!

6:30pm – Mikey Bilello
Fingerstyle Guitar arrangements of all your favorite songs.
Mikey is a Fingerstyle Guitar Player native to New York, currently living in Santa Cruz. Playing bass and melody at the same time, you might think he was playing two instruments at once. Though he plays mostly Jazz and Blues, all genres are fair game at his performances and all of his songs are constantly revamped as he grows as a player. You can find him playing on the regular at Farmers’ Markets and busking downtown throughout the bay area.

Deep Fried – An empire of sun-drenched beats and cozy, tripped-out jams
Starting with a home brewed digital instrument, Peter Chester and Robert Vance Cross III met in college and dived deep into a nerd-gasm of sound. In the electronic music program at UCSC they were trained in the ancient arts of midi and audio geekery. Classes led by the unique teaching stylings of Peter Elsea were fueled by coffee and gummy bears with sessions often lasting long into the night and into the next day.
Using Cycling 74’s MAX/MSP, Peter built a custom looping patch, called the “cuisNart”, a live collaborative music production instrument. Often catching guest artists off guard, the recording process the songs take form in a very organic often slowly unfolding pattern that often lends itself to an extended jam session. These live jams are then remixed retouched and edited down to the most delicious and unique moments of the performance. The creme de la creme.
After nearly 10 years of playing together and perfecting the cuisNart approach to songwriting they still have no idea what the hell their doing, but somehow their sound is just as fresh and vibrant as the first day they jammed together.
We define DISCRETION as wisdom, wit and kindness. These qualities shape our interactions with each other, our ever-growing circle of customers, our community, and our beer.
Open Daily 11:30-9:00
