That’s why our beer is crafted from ingredients that are carefully sourced to support sustainable farming, 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 — consistently exquisite, solar-powered, and delicious.

Trivia Night

Every 2nd & 4th Thursday

Next Trivia Night: 12/8
6-8pm

Trivia at Discretion Brewing every 2nd & 4th Thursday of the month. Hosted by Rich Berkery aka “Rich the Trivia Guy!”No sign-ups required — just show up early to grab a seat in the Beer Garden, and get ready to exercise your brain while enjoying Discretion!

About Rich the Trivia Guy:

“My 4th grade teacher inquired why I answered “John Adams” when the question was, “Who was the first U.S. President?” Despite my knowing the answer as George Washington, I wryly replied, “but isn’t knowing who the first Vice President more challenging?” I suspect this was the moment trivia was born for me.

I started playing and eventually hosting trivia nights at the “Grand Daddy” of all trivia locales, King’s X in Oakland, which is the longest continuously running pub trivia game in the U.S.. I have also had fun hosting fundraising tournaments, including the Juvenile Hall Auxiliary, “9/11 Project” and the American Cancer Society Relay For Life.

I only appear trivia savvy because I have all of the answers.”

The Back Porch Boys

Sun. 2/19/23

3:00-5:00pm

The BACK PORCH BOYS dig into the glorious roots of American music from the Delta blues in Mississippi to New Orleans up to Memphis over to Austin and jumpin’ to Chicago. Singer-guitarist RICH COWAN and harmonica enthusiast VIRGIL THRASHER put their combined 90 odd years of playing music on display. You will hear the likes of Tampa Red, Mississippi John Hurt, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Fats Domino among other icons from the early days.

Power Strip

Sat. 11/12/22

3:00-5:00pm

Power Strip is a project since September 2010 with Noise Clinic and Junk Sick Dawn founder Tait Reed (after returning from Japan in 2008), and internationally touring artist and musician Sayaka Yabuki.

Power Strip was the featured band at the 2012 Santa Cruz Nexties awards. At the 2011 Calamari Fest at India Joze, Power Strip played their opus “The Call Of Cthulhu” operetta based on the science fiction horror story by HP Lovecraft. They have opened for Jane Wiedlin of The Go-Go’s awesome side project band Elettrodomestico at The Catalyst and played in the Catalyst atrium the same night that blues legend BB King played the main stage.

Power Strip is known for playing bent, stripped down covers of songs they like – anything from The Cure to The Germs, to Roy Orbison to Ennio Morricone, to Bernard Hermann to Julee Cruise. Sometimes they have guest players add to the mix, but for their performance at Discretion, Power Strip will be at its most stripped down: guitar, violin, synth, voice, and a headful of wild ideas.
