Raspberry Smile
Tart Raspberry Ale w/ Hibiscus
4.7% ABV • 9 IBU
Raspberries and hibiscus bring happy pink flavors and fruity aromas to this tart and refreshing beer. It tastes like a smile.


Italian-style Pilsner
4.9% ABV • 27 IBU
Stefano balances soft, sweet malt, light fruitiness, and floral and herbal Noble hops character. Complex and delicate yet saturated with flavor, it’s strength is in its gentleness. We named it in honor of Grandpa Stefano Genco, who immigrated from Bari, Italy in 1906.


1st Conversation
5.8% ABV • 21 IBU

“What are you drinking?”

That first conversation between new-found friends has to start somewhere.

Our Conversation Series, a line of Belgian-inspired beers, begins with this versatile saison. Malted barley, rye, and wheat are fermented with a farmhouse yeast strain that contributes fruity, citrusy, spicy notes.


Sky To Sea
Amber Ale
5.5% ABV • 29 IBU
Lace up your boots, look down the trail, and see the horizon cut a line against the sea. This classic American amber ale rolls onto the palate with a malty, bready backbone, while caramel notes tag along close behind. A gentle floral- and citrus-scented breeze cuts across your taste buds as the path leads you on.


Pebble Project
Mosaic-Hopped Pale Ale
5.2% ABV • 38 IBU

Stone by tiny stone, a picture emerges…

In our Mosaic-hopped pale ale, shining facets of flavor and aroma build a beautiful beer. Breathe in papaya, guava, and freshly-bloomed blossoms, each scent an element of the Mosaic hops.


Castle Beach
Extra Pale Ale
6% ABV • 38 IBU
Castle Beach, crowning the Seabright neighborhood, is our “home beach,” ever-changing as decades go by. It inspired this extra hoppy, extra fun, extra refreshing brew dry-hopped with Comet, Citra, and Strata. Notes of tangerine, strawberry, peach rings, and a hint of dank play on a base of light, bready malt. See you at the beach!


Hola Lola
West Coast IPA
6.7% ABV • 60 IBU
Lola was rescued from the streets of Baja and now frolics in the woods of Santa Cruz when she’s not hanging out at the brewery. We celebrate her arrival with this West Coast IPA that’s vibrant with pine and bursting with notes of grapefruit and pineapple. Exuberant Sultana and Chinook hops romp on a biscuity base of Admiral Maltings’ Maiden Voyage, resulting in a brew that will have you frolicking too.


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.


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.


Mickie Malone’s
Irish-style Dry Stout on Nitro
4.8% ABV • 35 IBU
Mickie Malone’s Irish eyes were usually smiling. She had a kind heart and a smile that beamed. I miss you Mom; this one’s for you. Love, Michael


Talk All Night
Belgian Stout w/ Cacao Nibs
7% ABV • 34 IBU
The stories deepen and extend past twilight, moonrise, midnight. It’s hard to tear oneself away when chocolate is involved. Cacao nibs from Ecuador, roasted malts, and Belgian yeast make for an engaging conversation. The aroma hints at dark chocolate, the flavor is rich and satisfying, and the surprisingly clean finish leaves you wanting more.


Stacks of Stars
Hazy Double IPA
8% ABV • 68 IBU
A well-crafted hazy is like stacks of stars in a glass. Dry-hopped with Strata, Zappa, and Comet, this hazy double IPA sparkles with aromas and flavors of citrus, sweet tropical fruit, and dank, resinous pine. Expand your horizons with its cosmic juiciness.


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
11.8% ABV • 23 IBU
Three Fawns is a Belgian-style tripel aged in Elijah Craig 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


Her Majesty’s Suitcase
Imperial Porter Ale
13.2% ABV • 30 IBU
Her Majesty’s Suitcase is a beer fit for royalty. Packed with rich aromas of coconut, vanilla, and chocolate,
the sweet nose belies the beer’s strength. One sip reveals a velvety smoothness with notes of graham cracker and molasses. Meticulous blending of choice beers from our barrel-aging program created an Imperial Porter elegant and powerful enough to please both the queen and her porter.
*3-oz/10-oz only


Woodland Critters® No.9
American Sour Wheat Beer
5.8% ABV • 10 IBU
After nine months in neutral David Bruce wine barrels and an additional 13 months of conditioning in stainless steel, this beer features bright acidity with notes of Meyer lemon accented by a light brininess. Mixed fermentation contributed a moderate barnyard funk. The beer finishes dry, with each crisp, refreshing sip inviting another. This beer supports the Land Trust of Santa Cruz County, which works to preserve local lands and critters.
