Shimmer Pils®
German-style Pilsner
5.3% ABV • 31 IBU
She has a shimmery depth, like light on the fathomless sea. Our brewer’s wife, Eileen, inspired the name of this beer. Shimmer Pils is a crisp and refreshing German-style Pilsner, a true lager with a balanced hoppiness.


Ten Million Flowers
Kolsch w/ Orange Peel & Honey
5.9% ABV • 23 IBU
Tens of millions of flowers were visited by local bees to make the honey that gives a taste of place and a dry finish to our Kolsch-style ale. Vinous esters mingle with a wisp of honey in the nose. The delicate malt flavor is gently accented with a touch of orange zest in this refreshing, food friendly beer.


Redwood Mountain Blonde
Blonde Ale
5.3% ABV • 26 IBU
This blonde ale is a favorite for summer sipping beneath our beloved, towering redwoods. Delightfully bright and refreshing, its low bitterness and subtle malt expression will win you over.


Pogonip Pale
Pale Ale w/ Grapefruit
5% ABV • 25 IBU
Pogonip Pale is named in honor of the meadows, forests, and creeks of one of Santa Cruz’s greenbelts. Fresh grapefruit zest enhances the citrus character of cascade and chinook hops. Just as a hike in Pogonip refreshes the soul, Pogonip Pale refreshes the palate with zings of lemon and grapefruit on a delicate malt background.


Jugo Nuevo
Hazy IPA
5.6% ABV • 46 IBU
This new-school hazy IPA is brimming with aromas of tropical fruits. Hops, hops, and more hops were added to this beer throughout the production process to create a distinctively succulent IPA with notes of pineapple and guava. You wouldn’t be blamed if you thought this was some sort of “new juice” rather than a hazy IPA.


Hazy IPA
6.3% ABV • 35 IBU
DeLa Hazy IPA celebrates Delaveaga Park’s world-renowned disc golf course where many of us spend our days off. The beer, soft and full on the palate, is dry-hopped with Citra and a little Amarillo. Aromas of resinous green pine evoke hilly fairways surrounded by pine forest. Juicy oranges, lemon candy, guava, and ripe mango spin and glide over the tongue with little fade. Cheers to tree love and birdies!


Local Lion
West Coast IPA
6.7% ABV • 51 IBU
Our local lion is cool and assured, confidently offering bursts of pine and citrus in each bright and irresistible sip.


Cold Hands Warm Heart
Cold IPA
6.6% ABV • 45 IBU
This beer overflows with the citrusy, fruity, and dank flavors of a west coast IPA (thank you, Centennial, Simcoe, and Mosaic!), with a clean, dry body that takes its cues from a light lager. Each sip is crisp and hoppy and invites another.


Follow The Creek
West Coast IPA
6.8% ABV • 40 IBU
“Follow the Creek” is always good advice, whether you’re seeking adventure upstream or finding your way home. This IPA will refresh you wherever you end up. Aromas of pine and citrus lead to lemon drops on the palate, enhanced by the sweet, grassy character of California grown and malted pilsner malt.


Uncle Dave’s IPA®
IPA with a Hint of Rye
6.5% ABV • 68 IBU
Is there anyone better to sit around a campfire with, telling stories, IPAs in hand? We think not. Cheers, Uncle Dave! Our Rye IPA has fruity/herbal hop aromas with a substantial supporting maltiness. The rye contributes a hint of peppery spice to this full bodied, complex IPA.


The Lark
7.2% ABV • 25 IBU
Springtime invites some adventurous fun. The Lark Maibock is a festive lager brewed to celebrate the spring season. German Pilsner and Munich malts mingle to create a malty rich, yet smooth and balanced brew.


Porter Ale
6.2% ABV • 34 IBU
The Bay/Porter exit off Hwy. 1 brings you into Soquel Village, our brewery’s neighborhood. It needed to have this beer named after it. Aromas of deeply roasted chocolate mingle with notes of toasted black bread. Smooth caramel on the tongue transitions to bittersweet chocolate and roasted malt flavors with a pleasingly bitter finish.


Scenic Stout
Export Stout (Served on Nitro)
7% ABV • 50 IBU
Amazing panoramas await when you take the scenic route. Scenic Stout is a robust yet smooth stout with a rich aroma of bittersweet chocolate. Oats round out its roasty, deep, dark cocoa flavor. Scenic Stout is the way to go.


Good Faith
Strong Ale
9% ABV • 55 IBU
Our old shepherd Faith would’ve made a great brewery dog, but she didn’t live quite long enough. (Dogs never do.) Here’s to her and to all the good dogs. Good Faith is a Strong Ale, with malt derived toffee and dried fruit notes.
*3-oz/10-oz only


Three Fawns
Bourbon-Barrel Aged Tripel
9.5% ABV • 23 IBU
Three Fawns is a Belgian-style tripel aged in American bourbon barrels. A boozy warmth redolent of vanilla, black pepper, and honey, along with soft berry notes, leads into a dry peppery finish influenced by oak. *3-oz/10-oz only 


Lots O’ Cots
Apricot Sour
6% ABV • 5 IBU
Aged for two years in neutral French oak white wine barreles from David Bruce Winery in the Santa Cruz Mountains, and conditioned for an additional two months on organic apricots, this apricot sour has an intense apricot nose, vibrant citrus-like acidity, and a dry, moderately funky/complex palate. Brewed with malts from Admiral Maltings and unmalted wheat from Coke Farm in San Juan Bautista. *3-oz/10-oz only
